If ever I agree with someone I must say that I certainly agree here.
Yes, it has gone much too too too too far the way that many of the women who called themselves ‘saved’ and are a part of the gospel music world of today.
When you see Shirley Caesar dressing like a fool then you truly know something is wrong. She was a staple… a solid rock… a rock … a torch bearer. But it appears that she too is becoming carried away with the style and attitudes of the world. And it is very sad.
I have been trying to find that first dress I saw on Yolanda Adams where. It was utterly ridiculous that I wondered how in the world she had put it without realizing that THAT DRESS was certainly going to start a stir in the black Christian world. And it must truly have done so… because it is nowhere to be found on the internet.
For years now we have known that a vast majority our gospel singers were interested in crossing over into the secular world. They looked over and saw the money… the cars… the houses etc… etc… etc. But if the truth be told the gospel artist who are on top make plenty of money some demanding more than $20,000 a show.
I have paid $4,000 for an act to come in to do a prayer breakfast. Well, almost we haven’t seal the deal. I expanded it into doing a concert later that evening. Because I just could not see myself paying anyone $4,000 just to show up at our prayer breakfast… and then have to fly them in and put them up in a hotel too without getting the full benefit from my investment.
But gospel artist demand a lot of money. I once over heard my past mumbling after having brought a certain, used to be a bit heavier and fuller breast, gospel singer in. She demanded a limousine and to stay in a 5 star hotel.
They want to be treated like rock stars… super stars. Oh, they bring the anointing…
Well, some of them. But are they really worth the big ticket many of them want to demand. I think not.
But it is not a matter of the money which this blog is about… but about their matter of dress. And it speaks volumes.
The Bible tells us to ‘come out from among them.’ And ‘to be ye transformed.’
Then why are some many of our gospel artist negating ‘the word’ to want to become more and more like the world?
It is hard to believe that today we see many gospel female artists who want to dress like Lil’ Kim or Nicki Minaj.
What happen to dressing in a way becoming to a woman… not like a woman trying to sing and sell her wares too? Because that is very much what it looks like.
They are exposing their breast… their shoulders… thighs… legs…. and everything else.
They are getting implants… breast implants… hip and thigh implants etc. all designed to make them look more voluptuous. But didn’t the Bible say that a woman should be modestly dress, as not to draw attention to her body?
But the flesh is alive and well sadly in the gospel world. And it appears that the more these women show of it the happier they are about it.
I didn’t think it was robbery how Mahalia Jackson used to dress… or any of those old gospel women groups. Even Shirley Caesar… somebody I would have never believed would be trying to follow the ways of this world… is getting into the act, and looking like she enjoys it.
But if the truth be told this trend is showing up in their music too. Most the music that comes out today is just plain garbage. And I don’t know who told these so-called song writers that pulling a few words of scripture from Psalms and singing over and over and over and over and over… is really a song or song writing.
What Rev. Timothy Wright’s wife did with ‘Jesus Jesus Jesus’ cannot be duplicated. And we are told in scripture that there is nothing like the name of Jesus, and this song certainly proved that because I never have to think about the tone or key to sing it… and I feel the power in that song whenever I hear it.
But this other mess or repetitive words is just plain junk for the most part. It has no power and touches nothing down deep inside you. It is a key change after key change without any real meaning or significance… not really worth singing and definitely not much worth hearing. Because there is usually nothing to these songs at all but a waste of time.
I am sorry to see our real song writing in the gospel music world take a decline… and a back seat to this junk of repetitive words which have no anointing whatsoever… outside of Rev. Timothy’s Wright’s wife song. It is kind of odd that not much after she had written this song that that fatal accident coming from A.I.M, a Church of God in Christ convention held that year in Detroit… took place in which God took her and a grandson… and not long after her He took the Right Reverend Wright too. But what a song… and songs they left us with. And also a firm belief in God… and a knowledge that they were ‘real religious people of God’... not like many of these perpetrating gospel singers ‘wanna be’ secular people of today.
Well, God bless…. Well, it is wet here but my cousin tells me that they are in for snow today. But it is spring and we are just a couple of weeks away from Easter.
So, let me be the first to wish you a happy and safe Easter. What a grand time it is as we move forward to celebrating the purpose our Lord and Savor and… to lay down his life that he would rise again… so that we all may have a right to life over death.
Thank for reading…
Well, I hope you tell your friends, co-workers and family… everybody even the man down the street and … “pass it on… ” http://www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©2017

I saw the video that Kim says someone took of her during a service some night at her
church, when Kim Burrell goes off the chain proclaiming her dislike of gay people… with particular reference to those in the church.
I also saw the video that Kim made backing or attempting to back away from much of what she said in that video, of her ranting about gay people. My thing in watching this video was this.
‘Kim if you really feel about gay people as you said while standing in the pulpit. Then why back down from it… if you feel that what you had said was right?’
Cause you see if I say something that I think is right… then I am not going to back down from it. Oh, I can change my mind… yes, regarding my thinking. But if I feel that I am correct in my thinking then I am not going back away from what I believe. And I don’t care who may not like it. Unless… again… if I think about it and later begin to regret what I said… or how I said it. Or I might even discover that I was wrong… because that does happen too. And has happened to me.
I mean I would be lying if I said I never regretted saying something. It happens all the time to many of us. We spoke too fast. Or mis-spoke…
But the way Kim was going on and on in that pulpit… I would have to say that she was really versing her sentiments quite definitely. And if what I heard in another video was correct… in that what that person said about her husband, whom Kim is now either divorced from or separated from for some years now… was that he was gay.
I would say that might cause a woman to go on and on about hating gays. That woman who used to sell orange juice years ago… I forget her name. She had been an ex-Miss America when she came out strongly against gay people back in the latter 70’s or 80’s… and boy did they slam her. She lost all kind of contracts behind that… and the orange juice industry was quick to get rid of her. But what a price that industry paid in revenue losses when gay people boycotted orange juice… and boycott it they did. And they won.
With regards to Kim Burrell… whom I often have found to be sharp with her tongue… I find it hard to believe that she did not think about her wardrobe person, or her make-up person, or her hair stylist or everybody else who may possibly be on her team, when she is preparing to get up to perform… because most of them are gay. But I am sure that hit home shortly after she realized that that video got out… had been uploaded on youtube, and the calls started coming in to her.
This is America and, of course, Kim Burrell like everybody else in
America has a right to an opinion on whatever she wants to have an opinion on… whether I may or may not agree with her on it.
But where I thought Kim Burrell went too far …was for her to be standing in the pulpit and talking about certain things… like men having ‘p___nis’ in their mouths. Or women with their breasts shaking in front of another woman. It was a bit too much.
Kim went overboard and that is what more than anything I believed killed her… and took away from anything that she was trying to say. She was not preaching… nor was she teaching. But Kim was spouting out vicious remarks of feelings, that maybe she had been harboring for some time and just felt it was okay… for some reason or other… to release those sentiments into the atmosphere at that time… in that church service.
I am a firm believer that the pulpit is not for all types of conversations. Nor is it a place for where we should be standing in it believing that it is okay to just say whatever comes into our narrow minds. The sanctuary and …certainly the pulpit is ‘holy.’ It is holy ground and it is not meant to be a place where we preach hate or condemnation.‘
Who are we to condemn people as though we too were not once lost in sin?
This is the problem I have with many people in the church. They act as though they were never once sinners.
And I really get tired of hearing those people who say, ‘I’ve been saved since I was 3.’
Are you really trying to tell me that since you were a child… and supposedly became saved that you never once sinned?
I will bet that you sinned more than once. And probably did things I never thought to do.
So, the devil is a liar. And those people need to stop telling that ‘I’ve been saved since’ lie.
Why do people want to pretend that they are so holy and righteous …when they are filled with such ‘high looks,’ bigotry and animosity against not just gay people… though gay people always seem to be at the top of everyone’s list… but against everybody but fornicators… adulterers… liars etc….etc…etc.. Because THAT list certainly goes further than just being gay.
Some of these same people voted Donald Trump into office and saw no sin in him. I would not have believed that either… had I not heard and seen them at our national convocation in St. Louis. It was quite disturbing to me. And a couple of them… bishops even… I had to set straight.
Speaking of bishops. Some of these very people are ‘the corrupters.’ Stealing away the lives of many of these young boys, by feasting on them sexually …while proclaiming something else in the pulpit and making jokes about ‘limp wrist.’
This thing is sad. And there are a bunch of hypocrites in the church… in the black church and white church… and everything in between.
Yeah, they can proclaim they hate them… but they lead the choir… play the instruments… sing the sermonic solo.
So, stop playing with yourself… and trying to preach hate, when their is a cleansing that needs to take place. And it is in the hearts of each and every one of us because we have been commanded to love… not condemn or chastise folk because we act like we can’t stomach their sin.
It is not for you to stomach. God who is the creator and is also the finisher. And you don’t know who he is going to clean up and place over you.
He can turn everybody around. Did He not turn you around?
Oh, I forgot. He is still working on you, Kim and everyone else who thinks like her.
I was at the convocation 2 years ago when that guy came out and started proclaiming, ‘I
ain’t gay no more.’
That whole service was like being in the midst of a comedy show. That guy from Orlando who was suppose to preach… was beside himself …just like Kim. And practically the whole area was eating it up… they were rolling over in laugher of this guys homophobic tyrants.
It was so good to them that the video department sold out of that dvd that night… and could not keep up with the demand for it. This I know not because I tried to buy it… but because the next day while waiting on my ride back to my hotel a bunch of people were still laughing over that mockery of a church service. I sat through it, yes… but it was all I could do not to get up and walk out on that guy that night. And I would have had I thought my courtesy driver was outside to take me back to my hotel.
We should stop all this ‘gay mess.’ It is not the only sin… need you think of what you are doing that God may be angry at. Because at the end of the day… that is what really should concern you more than anything else. Because when you shut your eyes… it won’t be that gay man in the choir or up the street whom you will have answer for. But your behavior towards them will surely be an issue before God.
I think we all need to read the Bible more. Because somewhere along the line you are all missing something when you attack anyone who is lost in sin.
And I think that any pastor or anyone who calls him or her self a pastor …or whatever who
invites someone to come and preach at their church and says, ‘You can come to preach but don’t mess with my sissies.’
I think that person needs to remove themselves or the church remove him or her… because they are users. But not Godly. They rather see people not hear the truth… and I am not talking about a bunch of harsh and hard words of condemnation… but ‘the truth’ as to what the Bible says because they desire that everybody in their church or under them know what God desires in order for us to sincerely get into heaven…
Let us not chase people out of the church. But let us work on trying to allow God to do His perfect work in them. The Bible says, ‘faith comes through hearing the word of God.’ They must be allow in the church… so that they do not go to ‘gay churches’ and sit up in there believing that everything is alright… and while they play church that they can make into heaven.
Let us not be that mean …or selfish. Thank God the doors of the church were open for us… or we too would still be out there doing whatever it was that we used to do. And many of you still do… if the truth be told….
Well, God bless… Well, I finally got my chance to say what has been on my mind concerning this subject. I just hope that people will come to love and respect one another and all of our differences. I hate sin and it hurts for me to see people languishing in it. I have many gay friends … and even some family members whom I know will be lost if they fail to change. But I pray that God call them out as He was so kind and gracious enough to do me. And that they have an ear to hear… and God gives them a desire to come out… and stay out.
Well, God bless… I’m out. Thanks for reading my blogs. Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends… “pass it on…” http://www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©2016

I just happened to be on youtube when I saw this video and decided to click on it to see what Juanita was preaching about… only to be a bit surprised by her new look… and since the video was just uploaded a few days ago it is very much a ‘new look’ for her. A bit too much plastic surgery for sure… and the make-up does not help. It only makes her look worst …and again like she is in some kind of spiritual trouble.
I suspect after somewhat watching her transition into this ‘new Juanita’… the 1 before this… it is not hard to see that she has had this thing about how she looked. It appeared to be some kind of self-hate… or maybe that is too extreme. Let me say a dislike for her natural facial features.
Yes, that sounds better.
Looking at the photographs displayed at the beginning of her video… her program intro as this seems to be a new undertaking for Juanita…with her in a cap and jeans… Juanita seems be trying to recapture her youth… or some kind of teen to 21 hip look or something.
In listening to her video below it appears to me she is trying to join the ranks of Yolanda Adams… Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin, Dorinda Clark and that marymary sister, Erica Campbell… on the radio air-waves with a syndicated national radio broadcast.
But being Juanita… she appears to not only be happy being on the radio air-waves… but also wants to have video live-streaming while she broadcasts her radio show. And this show… or broadcast… or this video take of it was evidently recorded with a very bad camera with terrible audio… and doesn’t appear to really be a live radio show but a pretense of doing it live in her home. Nor does it appears to be anything like the Juanita Bynum I have come to know via my observation of her. She has always been on top of her sound.
If nobody else on the podium sounds good… you can beat she is going to sound great because she leaves nothing to chance when its come the quality of her sound… which is, of course, her money maker. But no so in these videos.
Now, many thousands of people no longer go into a read radio radio to broadcast their radio shows because technology today has made it so easy to do it that way… if you have
good quality professional or semi-professional equipment… and have someone close to being a professional set it up for you. You can broadcast from anywhere in the world… even in your bathroom or a cave… and nobody will know whether it was in or out of a professional broadcasting studio.
But clearly, we can tell that this video tape was done with professional equipment …or some high level recording equipment… camera with a good mic or a mic tied in.
But it is not the technical problems with Juanita’s video … but the evident continued plastic surgery which it appears she is continuing to engage in… and her new hair that she is so busy flinging all over the place… and her body language …and total look of glee that makes you wonder… is she back on drugs?
How could Juanita possible be so happy with her new look… in looking so overjoyed while recording this video. In which in my opinion she looks far less than her normal self.
Just with all the batting of her eyes so continuously. And all her what appears continuous movements… and such personal internal glee within herself … you can’t help but wonder is Juanita herself under the spell of drug addiction which she preaches about in the first video.
After Pastor Zackary Timms being found in a New York hotel dead from a drug overdose… we should all be on the lookout for who else may be in trouble. We are so busy just listening to these folks and fail to recognize that some of our pastors, evangelists etc. are in trouble.
There were definite signs that Pastor Timms was in trouble. I can clearly say that. I will never forget seeing him 1 day leap up on his podium like he was Batman or Superman. And I recalled thinking where was the reverence to God’s altar in what he had done?
Listen how fast Juanita is talking in her video… all that hyper energy that is clearly displayed.
I once was having a conversation with someone who was talking to me about possible employment. While speaking with this person someone else was standing nearby observing this conversation. When we had finished talking and the person had left… the person who had been observing said to me, ‘Did you see how she was moving? How she never stopped moving? And how she was talking?’
I said, ‘No.’
I know nothing about addiction. Or people under addiction. But the women who had been standing watching that conversation knew plenty about it. And she began to educate me.
She started saying, ‘Didn’t you notice that she used to be a junkie? How she rushed through their words while speaking, how her eyes move? How she could not stand still or sit still
No, I had not noticed… nor did I know how to pick up on those type of things. I knew nothing about how people show signs of things of addition or past addiction… actions that are not natural for folk normally. That is exactly what I hear and see in this video of Juanita.
Juanita is not acting as she normally acts. Her actions and language are out of sync with the Juanita we see displayed in most of her videos… while delivering the word or trying to share thoughts on tv or in her other videos.
No, this is an irrational fidgety Juanita… with eyes that keep rolling and batting uncontrollably… racing through what she is speaking about. Look at her eyes. Listen to what she is saying.
Clearly, Juanita is either drunk or high… or maybe both. All that flinging of hair… particular articulation of certain words… treats of hitting somebody… fast un-expected jerky erratic movements… and just a pattern of irrational behavior for Juanita … it all clearly says Juanita is very much out of character. And her in the photo shots in her show intro at the beginning and end of her video …of her in pants and
cap looking very much like Beyonce speaks volumes also.
I am not certain that Juanita has not taken money to promote the music of the artists that she is featuring in her video shows. But she gives each song’s date when it will be able for purchase, so that might be a hint.
Okay, I’m waiting on a very important telephone call now. So, I must stop here. And I am suppose to be editing… so much for that. But I must go but you enjoy the rest of the week, and have a good weekend. At some point I hope to find time to talk about Donald Trump… what a mess this whole political cycle has become… 1 big joke if it weren’t so serious.
Well, God bless… and thank you for reading this blog…and my others. Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends… “pass it on…” http://www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©201
UPDATE: September 27, 2016… Truly speaking Juanita Bynum is getting weirder and weirder with each and every 1 of these videos she does. Note how she grabs hold of her nose as she just finished taking a snort of cocaine or something.
This is a woman who is usually so up on the quality of everything she puts out. But all these latest videos released by her doing this ‘new thing’ lack her usual attention to detail … particularly when it comes to the audio of these videos.
In the video I just posted below she has a leg up with her legs wide open. I know …. I’m old school. But isn’t she representing the Kingdom… is there not proper protocol regarding women and how we sit when in public? And I really do not understand the new look with regard to her hair.
It really does appear to me that maybe Juanita may be on her way to a crash. She seems to be slipping… and long ago lost focus.

Well, by now I take it that you know I must have seen the video or come across something which has alerted me considering this new controversy circling around Bishop Eddie Long.
Yes, as a matter of fact a few weeks ago I came across the YouTube video posted by the Bishop… or someone telling everyone that he was alright, but had started this new health kick or some kind of diet. But honestly to tell you the truth as I watched him… and paid great attention to his body language and facial expressions…
Well, to tell you the truth he looks like a man who has either consumed himself with alcohol or become an addict.
I know…. I know you probably don’t want to hear this. Some of you really do still believe and trust in the Bishop. But he is a man who is greatly troubled. And the demons which possess him do not seem to have finished with him yet.
I hate to see people brought down. Or shamed before everyone. But when I look at those boys whom he groomed into homosexuality… and think about how he claimed he was ‘David facing Goliath’ when it came to his legal battles with them over their abuse. I feel sorry… for them all… all the way around. Really.
I clearly understand how a demonic spirit can enter into your body and attack you… bringing you into submission IF YOU ARE NOT FULLY EQUIPPED to fend off such attacks through the Holy Spirit.
Unless you are FULLY EQUIPPED with the Spirit of the Lord… the devil will steal your mind. And don’t sit there and think that he won’t do it… nor that it can’t happen to you. Because it can. Even to me. Yes, it can… if I were not equipped and believed fully in God. And that God is able to keep me through all things… if I desire to be kept.
There is this thing that we must all understand… and that is ‘in order to stand and fight off the devil you better be fully prepared for the battle.’ We are not told as Christians that we must have on ‘the WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD’ for no reason. Without God’s amour… His protection… we too can become easily overtaken by demonic spirits. And when these spirits get a hold of you… when they enter into your body… and get into your spirit… they are not easily shaken.
We all need the power of God truly working within us in order to bring us out of such attacks. But… and it is a big BUT. But if we become captivated by the lure of the sin that is trying to entangle us then we loose. You cannot fall prey to such attacks, and the attraction to the evil doing that you begin to operate within it… for you will get lost in it. As we see how that thing took a hold of Bishop Long. One day out marching against homosexuals… while entering those spirits within his own flesh. And it over took him.
For the most part Bishop Eddie Long has long been recognized as a prosperity preacher. I will be 1 of the first to tell you… and not me alone… that God truly endowed him with the word. But he went astray… and got into all that prosperity mess.
Once Long got into the prosperity teachings and doings… he was lost. He got turned around and lost his focus. His god became mammon… riches. You cannot serve both God and the lure of riches. You will either love the 1 and hate the other.
Therefore, the lust of money then made him more susceptible to any other spirit that would attach itself to him. Hence, the spirit of homosexuality came calling upon him.
Thus, Long began to open up facilities to house boys from which a chosen few were picked for his sexual grooming… to fill his desire to interact with them on a less than religious manner… as a perpetrator… a sexual deviant. A grown man seeking to delight himself sexual among young boys.
So, these young boys came into his range where he had access to them… could ‘father’ them into a seemingly caring relationship where what he was doing appeared to them … and I guess all who were near as a harmless religious relationship among him and them… the boys. As Long did not take sexual advantage of them physically… per what the boys/now grown young men claimed in their law suits against him. But he did do touchy and feelly things… things that excited and brought about certain urges… which Scripture has called ‘unnatural.’ Creating longings and desires within the young boys… which when you see them you can clearly see the damage that was done. They were groomed like cattle …or a horse for a certain kind of thing… a certain kind of behavior. And that ‘thing’ … in my opinion when I look at their videos and pictures of those young boys turned to young men… that ‘thing’ stole their manhood.
Now, fast forward to Eddie Long today after having paid out some $9 million plus to these young men whom he had doctored up and touched… and groomed in his special way to be his select stable… to feel whatever demonic fantasy that was going on in his head.
Today it appears that the demons have chased him down. Long looks broken… as broken as a drunk on the street (I hate using such terminology as it is not how I view people or ever speak of them… but for the purpose of this blog and the message I’m trying to convey, it is the only way I can get you to really see what I’m talking about. So, please forgive my terminology when speaking or classifying anyone here)
Yes, Bishop appears a broken man in this video below. And unlike Pastor Zachary Timms… I do see where possible drugs or alcohol may be playing a factor in his life.
That which loosing all that money and some of his congregation could not do… I now believe his conscience is making up for it… sadly. Such a gifted man at 1 time in the Lord. And look how he let the devil use him… and now I believe he is truly paying for it mentally and physically… and it is ironic.
The irony is how much he worked to build up his body… and what was an apparent love of his physique. To now be dwindled down to almost nothing… half a man. A tormented man it seems.
I pray he find a way back to the Lord. As we serve a God who is long suffering and forgiving. But to have taken his position as a spiritual leader and have turned it into an artful predator, using the house of the Lord as his playground… might be something that God will not forgive… as He did not forgive Eli when it came to his sons.
I just read that Bishop Long is now on a medical sabbatical after revealing to his church that he is facing some health challenges. Repentance is the only cure. A true and real pouring out of his heart
UPDATE: Yesterday morning… Sunday, January 15, 2017… it was reported that Bishop Long passed. I will not comment or speculate as to my thoughts further on this matter. It is sad all the way around …for all who were effected and involved.
I pray peace and resolution to the minds and souls of the young then boys drawn into this scandal. And that God call them out that they may be saved from the perverse thing and things which have and are happening to them. Because this now is their choice to chose to live or die in that mess.
Well, God bless… and thank you for reading this blog…and my others. Please be sure to continue to share this blog site with your family, co-workers and all your friends… “pass it on…” http://www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©2016

I must really be missing it… was asleep or somewhere. How is it that Jan Croach just died and I never heard anything about it until-
Until now when I happened to be on youtube looking something else up. And when I saw the title ‘Jan Croach Died,’ of a youtube video I thought it was somebody’s joke.
Not really sure if just someone was playing around… you know how they do on youtube. Then I decided to google it… and sure enough Jan Croach had really died just a few days ago, May 31, 2016, at 78 following a massive stroke.
Because I had not seen much of her on TBN lately… I just thought that Mat, or whatever the name of her son who now runs their TV networks… well, I had thought it was because Paul Croach, Jan’s husband who didn’t pass all that long ago himself… had left the TV networks to his son, and gave Jan her creation, The Holy Land Experience, down in Orlando, Florida.
I really can’t say that I really followed the Croach’s all that closely nor their channel, as they always seem to be doing those television money raising rallies… seeking donations most of the time. And at point I had read where Paul and Jan never spoke to each other EXCEPT when on television… and that they did not live together. Yet they portrayed themselves as a loving couple on their television broadcasts.
There seems to be such an irony is all of this seeing how Paul and Jan really felt about each other… that not so long after he died she would follow him to the grave. Now, it all goes to the boys, their 2 sons… and grand-kids… whom do not seem to be any more in harmony than Paul and Jan during the many years of their marriage.
I had also read some years ago that the Croach’s had been under investigation for mismanagement of those donation funds that they claimed to be using for the good of the furthering the word of God. One of their grand daughters claimed that Paul had been going out and using the company charge card to pay for lavish dinners in exclusive places, and while charging fine and very expensive alcoholic drinks to their church network tabs too.
To say the least Jan with her Barbie make-over was far from being anyone I would have put my trust in as being a really godly person. There is no doubt that she had a real obsession with becoming Barbie, that Matel children’s doll. Jan apparently had no problem with destroying the temple that God had given her, to get breast implants, pink hair and all kinds of other plastic surgery done to her face and body. I would say that maybe that could be a bit ‘carnal,’ wouldn’t you?
And to waste all that money doing it… when it could have gone to some kind of good in the world instead of a plastic surgeon.
I mean… who in their right mind really wants to look like Barbie?
Don’t answer that… because I think that was the look Lil’ Kim was also going for before she just plain decided to become some kind of white girl. How truly sad compared to what she used to look like. Talk about self-hate.
And the amazing part about that was that Jan could not see it just how foolish she looked.
When the devil has your mind… he ‘really’ has your mind. And he definitely evidently ‘really’ had Jan’s mind in order for her to believe she looked like anything other than a fool with all that pink hair setting on top of her head.
I am not trying to be hurl or vicious. Heaven forbid. Afterall, the woman is dead… and only died just a few days ago. But what about having messed up face and head with that hair made her feel glorious is a wonder to me.
Jan’s father was a pastor under the Assemblies of God, a denomination which grew out of the Church of God in Christ. And there was not much that the Croach’s did not learn while under the tutelage and mentor ship of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, who had their own theme park too, and had been well vested in daily television broadcasting… which the Croach’s took to another level… even down to Tammy Faye’s make-up.
Kind of ironic how Jan and Paul really got their start and was introduced to the production of television broadcasting through working for Jim and Tammy… and that Tammy Faye had to go and seek Jan and Paul out once the floor fell out from under the Jim Bakker ministries, with Jim ending up having to serve prison time from mismanaging church donations sent his ministry.
I doubt very much that we will see TBN fold and go under… or be sold off as that family is making far too much money from that network… no matter what inner turmoils their families or relationships may have to cast it all to the wind.
To God be the glory… and bless you, hope all is going well for you as we go into this weekend. The weather here is very nice… no cold weather in a few days now. So, maybe… just maybe we are finally transitioning into summer…

I know… I know… I’m late on this but from the moment that I found out… which was recently like last week… that Paula White got divorced and married a rocker I thought to myself.
Married a what???
A rock and roll rocker… as in musician????
Paula White the woman who became the head of what’s his name church in Orlando… who had a church in Tampa. That Paula White???
Yes, that 1.
Needless to say that it struck me odd that a so-called woman of God would even consider marrying a man… all tattooed up and still plays as a musicians touring on the road. He is in his mid-sixties while Paula claims to be in her mid-forties… with each
having married three times.
His name is Jonathan Cain… I’m not really familiar with him. But then I have never followed rock music or any of its groups outside of the BeeGee’s, Hall & Oates… if you can call them a group… and maybe 1 or 2 others but that
has been it
But it is not him who I wish to speak about… but Paula.
I first saw Paula on television. I guess the Word Network where she had been a fiery woman of God, at the time… who definitely knew the Word and could preach it. But over the course of time… lot most of the TV evangelists and pastors … or so-called… that I have seen on television they soon loose sight of God and become all about money. And that is exactly the only thing that Paula White seems to be consumed with getting… and does not mind freely letting you see that that is what she is all about these days.
I happened to come across the information of Paula’s wedding over the internet… on youtube. Where I thought it was interesting that the 2 videos talking Paula White and her new man… were 2 white people. Some man and some woman… who appeared to have a connection with each as the basic look of their videos were the same. But since Paula White’s congregation for the most part… as part as I have seen… has primarily been and continues to be majority African American… I would have expected videos on youtube regarding Paula’s wedding to been from some black folk.
I read where someone on Facebook posted on their page last week this question, ‘Why can we find black churches under the leadership of a white pastor, but cannot find the reverse?’
That is a very real question. Black are by far more accepting of having a white person leading them as a pastor than the opposite. A perfect example of this is the break between the Church of God in Christ and Assemblies of God.
When the Church of God in Christ was birth under Bishop C. H. Mason a number of white folk were also involved and in membership but later the white member withdrew from the Church of God in Christ to create their own denomination known as the Assemblies of Christ. This example of the split in membership between the white members and black members of the Church of God in Christ does strongly suggest that black people… though we had gone through slavery and oppression in many countries …not just in America but around the world… but when it comes to laying aside every weight and bias …especially when it comes to matters of God… black folk are by far more forgiving and tolerate than white people and can lay aside the color of someone’s skin.
But I am not trying to give a history lesson here. I want to comment on Paula White becoming unevenly yoked. But that is not to say that maybe she had not done so before. Because after all she had had 3 prior marriages… just like the man she married. So, both Paul and her rocker husband make the fourth marriage that each of them have said ‘I do’ to.
But how does a woman who professes to know the Lord. None less a pastor of the Word of God marry 4 times?
And the the 4th time being to a man in his 60’s who has spent his life playing and writing rock and roll music… and still does for a living?
Clearly, he has money. And we know that Paula definitely has money especially since her television time tab is picked up by the church she stepped in to assume the pastoral of following the death of Zachary Timms… giving way for a takeover by some church heads to put in slave master Paula White. Because if you listen to those youtube videos this 2 people uploaded
While Zachary was making a name for himself in Orlando, with New Destiny Christian Center, a church under the order of Apostle Fredrick Price… Paula was busy with her then husband… husband #3… Randy White building up their church in Tampa, Without Walls International… which has bit the dust and gone under the auction block.
There was lots of controversy when somehow Paula White emerged as the pick to lead Timms church following his death, due to overdose. To say the least it was a big mess. But to tell you the truth there are a lot of big messes in
the church… as our home church is dealing with 1 itself. But maybe sometime other time I will address that… but it was highly disappointing.
When I first saw Paula… I have no idea how long she had been on the scene prior as I never watched TV or had heard of her until I guess I used to start watching my sisters television on occasions and when I saw her preach at Bishop T.D. Jake’s Woman Thou Art Loose. At that time she was different … not obsessed with riches here on earth as she had since become. She today has stepped away from the ‘soul saving’ or ‘caring’ business to increase my pockets business.
It is interesting to me when I see these so-called pastors such as Rod Parsley… who when I first saw him he was different too. Today the man seems to be on the deep end… tethering between sanity and insanity. Money too has taken his mind. And like Paula and more than three quarters of those preachers on the Word Network… all of them in search of getting rich on the backs of gullible black folk willing to send them in whatever amount they ask for of that given day. As everyday on these people shows is a ‘give me’ ‘give me’ episode ‘if you want such and such.’ Or are looking for ‘such and such.’ It has become a real racket.
So, Paula is leading the black folk of Timms congregation now for the past 3 years or so… since Zachary died in New York City… found dead in a hotel room of an overdose. It must have been like hitting the jackpot because Zachary loved media. He loved being on television and had invested much in the state of art television and audio equipment. Not to mention all the television time his church purchased weekly. And Paula was and is a lover of media herself… it is what she has used to get her to the place where she now it.
But before at least Paula preached the gospel before. She merely uses the gospel now. But this marriage to this guy was a step way beyond ‘I could less what anybody thinks.’ It
was like ‘I’m going to have this man… and his money and I don’t care whether he ever finds Christ or not.’
Now, how does a supposed ‘woman of God’… much less a pastor with a large congregation do that?
Isn’t she suppose to be the role model… the standard bearer?
Well, Paula is worry about any standards godly or otherwise. She is too caught up in her own importance over her temple worshippers who I guess are willing to follow her straight into hell. The woman must be into witchcraft… voodoo or something because they are servants and she is their god head… married to her prince of
rock and roll, baby. And ain’t nobody up in arms about it… because Paula has her followers… the Destiny congregation
bewitched. Just as bewitched as when whomever elected her to take over their church that cause the whole board of elders selected to aid in that process such as Bishop T.D. Jakes and Bishop Ivy Hilliard to both hit the door, and start walking.
So, this woman marrying an ungodly man should not upset anyone… because honestly speaking Paula White ceased to be godly a long time ago.
It is clear that for anyone who marries time and time again… then evidently that person must be marrying outside of the will of God. There can be no other answer to that question… which would mean that any marriage outside of God’s will is doomed. Thus Paula White’s 3 prior marriages… and this cannot be any otherwise as the man is not of God… but is in the world.
God bless… It’s almost time for me to get out of here now. So I have got to hurry. But before I check out of here I just want to say, ‘What a fool that guy was last night who followed President Obama during that press dinner event they had. The guy was completely out of order. And to use the ‘N’ word when referring to my President absolutely inferiated me.
These clown uncle toms need to go and sit down. And never to arise again.
If I ever hope someone were to loose his job… on what overnight tv show he host… it is definitely him. He is not worth whatever they pay him. Kill that contract and bury that guy. What a fool… in a clown suit and make-up. No, maybe I am giving clowns a bad name to equate them and that idiot… whatever his name was.

It is hard for me to believe that most of you had not realized this thing about Brian Carn before until this controversy about him has come about.
From the very first time I ever saw and heard Carn preach on television I knew just who and what he really was… a con man trying to play holy and very prophetic.
Carn has always come off as a phony to me… even when watching some of these videos on youtube on Carn being outted as a fake prophet now…when supposedly he is speaking in tongues the guy doesn’t even try to pretend like he is really speaking in tongue… that heavenly language… but just speaking in some kind of mumble jumbo he has made up.
It is pathetic how people …people like Carn who want to use the church and the gospel of Jesus Christ as some type of play thing… by choosing to use the church and God’s gifts in such a way that is so low and underhanded… all for personal gain… the love of money. And I mean they lust after it… money as if it were sex. My, Lord…
When I first saw Carn he was a young man. I thought then that he had perhaps been 1 of those young kids reared up in the church like what we see today. Somebody at a very early age that someone or some people… namely his parents or some other family member began to declare that ‘God’s got such an anointing on’ his life. When in essence all the poor little child was doing was just mimicking what he had seen done in church. I did it and practically every child I know who has sat in church has done the same thing 1 time or another.
Some woman out of Houston back in 2013 it was reported contracted a vignal disease called trichomoniasis from Carn, a disease that causes women to have an itchy discharge and a foul smell… while men have no signs of it at all. Or so that story went. Whether it is true or not I do not know… but Carn who professes to be a man of God… walking in the steps that God is leading him in should of course be blameless.
Well, if that story is true Carn may not have known he had an STD. But as a man of God he wasn’t supposed to be indulging in anything that would have given him STD to pass on to anyone in the first place.
But I say if women aren’t careful if they choose to sin with Carn… then messing around with Carn a fear of catching some STD from Carns is not the only they may find themselves with. Because personally I think the man is gay… and I have always thought he was gay besides being a false prophet, from the first time I saw him.
Carn wouldn’t be the first man to try to cover up his desires for men but messing around with women in order to try to throw people off. It is a common trick that some believe they are smart enough to pull off… loving men while making it seem like they love women.
The other thing about Carn is if you have watched the people… or rather ‘the type’ of people he has consistently surrounded himself with… a bunch of other false prophets should have spoken to most people long time before this that Carn too was a fake.
Carn often could be seen on television programs with people like E. Jordan and his son Massansah… Rod Parsley… Benny Henn… and that list goes on and on.
Recently I heard Brian Carn give a list of supporters on periscope who have rallied behind him in the wake of this mess. With Brian Carn getting caught stealing the predictions from some woman…some call a witch or self-professed psychic… a woman who claims to be in alignment with familiar spirits…reads tarot cards and things like that. No big names mind you… because the truth is painfully obvious… Brian did it. And that is the reason he can be kept crying on some of youtube videos where is trying to explain this thing away.
Why would a supposed man of God being stealing the predictions of a psychic to give out to people …unsuspecting followers of his at some supposed prophetic event as him prophesying things to come in the future about 2 years ago.
After watching a series of youtube videos on this matter I couldn’t find videos that a better job at exposing this story of Brian Carn and his true lack of spiritual abilities
than Lexi’s periscope video on him.
Now, Lexi Allen was …and as I just found out… still is a host on the Word Network. She at 1 point had had her own weekly TV show on the Word… I forget what it was called but it was later taken over by Bishop George Bloomer, a man who has his own demons to deal with, if the truth be told. And she took that show over from Bishop what’s his name … a guy originally out of Delaware.
Oh, yeah… Gregg Davis. Another person who is highly questionable.
The way Lexi pounced upon people who did not agree with her on her periscope treading as she busted Brian as a fake … well, it really rather shocked me. It was a 365 degree turn from who she portrays to be while sitting on the Word Network as a gospel artist and/or religious television host.
Though Lexi tells it like it is concerning Carn and his fake supposed prophetic gift… I was totally really taken aback by Lexi’s periscope style and own attitude… and her use of the ‘N’ word and I think an occasional curse word or 2 in her attacks on viewers responding on her periscope channel, and the rage at which she personally attacked Carn for having diss-ed her girl Le’ Andria.
Now, I’ve been looking for Carn’s periscope attack on Le’ Andria… but have only come across partial statements on various videos by Carns where he is try to back track his own situation by making certain references to ‘preachers passing out condoms and cigarettes.’ Well, everybody
has to know by now that is a direct reference to Le’ Andria.
It appeared to me amazing that she would be totally against Carn as being a fake… and yet be so pro Le’Andria and all her antics. How can 1 uplift 1 sinner and dross another was a mystery to me?
Both Le’Andria and Carn need to fall down and beg for forgiveness. And if the truth be told… and she may not like it… but Lexi too. And call me what you may… but Lexi you too… because you are no better and your tone and language on your video proves that as much as Brian Carn and the footage of him giving that woman’s predictions… and Le’Andria going out on the street dressed as a prostitute handing out cigarettes and condoms. All is in error.
They are all pretenders. Pretending to be holy… righteous and yet unclean vessels. There is no partial walking with God. You are either all in… or all out. Whether on the television screen… or standing in a sanctuary… if you profess to be holy it requires a full time commitment. There is not
thing called ‘half-time saints’ or prophets… or pastors. All this faking must stop… and it must stop on every level. And knowing scripture or Bible or having grown up in the church is not going to help… because sooner or later the masquerade is over… Brian, Le’Andria and Lexi.
All I can say is get right with God. Get a right relationship with God… and stop trying to fool others… while only fooling yourselves.
It amazes me after all of this… and it cannot be denied. That after Brian Carn stole those predictions from a woman who played with predictions and familiar
spirits… as in Lexi’s video exposing him speaks for themselves… that there are still people willing to follow Carn. This is worst that being just plain gullible… it is plain stupid. Why are people willing to be so mislead by people that cannot rightly deny whatever they got in?
In the case of Brian Carn … he now professes to prove he gave those predictions on his own… and that he has never stolen anything from anybody especially a witch.
Oh yeah, right, Brian. On this I must agree with Lexi… ain’t no way.
I personally do not see how anyone became so captivated by Brian Carn in the first place. Because it was not hard to see that he was a fake. But then the Bible tells us that the people have itchy ears and are drawn to many ungodly things. That those things are more easily grasped by them than the truth or someone who is not fake. So many rather follow false prophets… false pastors (Le’Andria)… false teachings …than to follow the truth. And so many are still following Carn regardless of what has been brought to light on him and his fake prophetic gifts.
Well, God bless… it’s time I got to down to some other things I have to take care of right now but hopefully you will have a beautiful day. It is not as cold as it was yesterday here… but a bit damp. But I love the rain…

To tell you the truth I really don’t know much about her but…
Well, I had heard she won Sunday Best and I have seen a few videos on youtube of her, but other than that I have really had not had much to say about her. But then this new show came along this fall on 1 of the networks, Preachers of Atlanta.
After watching a couple of episodes of it and then listening to some reviews of the show on youtube… and watching Le’Andria let down her hair. And I do mean…’let down her hair,’ with a for real ‘I just do not care what you think attitude.’
All I can say is, “Uh-uh…”
While I was no big fan of the original, Preachers of L.A. with all their ‘bing-bing,’ and money being their god. With Detrick Haddon trying to pretend he so Saved and holy, to Bishop Noel Jones and his supposed 16 year old relationship with some woman, whom he may or may not have been going to bed with,
along with that young girl, or much younger women whom he supposedly made pregnant.
But this Preachers of Atlanta is a subtle destruction of the church. These pastors, on the Atlanta version, seem to be a little bit more palatable…with their pretense of ‘We love god…but are a new generation.’ Don’t be fooled. They are even worst… but playing on the down-low like they are not. But that it is all for God.
Who ever the producers are of these shows….they are bent on destroying the church by showing proof of everything sinners already believe to be true of the church. Their goal it appears is to not only make a mockery of the church, but in particular ‘the black church’… by tearing it apart bit by bit and stone by stone. And Le’Andria Johnson is their best candidate yet. Well, maybe not their best… because those preachers out of LA… did a job on the black church too… sad to say.
But this woman, La’Andria, is crazy and not shame about it… or to be crazy. She has a perfectly good excuse for why she decides to do… and does everything she do and does.
She drinks…. and can often be seen with a cup in her hand. She swears like a sailor when she gets a notion, as in her ‘periscope’ upload, where she removed the make-uP…and was talking about being evicted from her house. She has a very ungodly no-holds-barred attitude about everything… and a highly filthy mouth.
There is no possible way I could or can believe that Le’Andria is really Saved.
I also think she needs to be a lot more thankful to God for the wonderful gift He so graciously endowed her with. And then He opened the door for that gift to shine… which she so willingly is making a fool and mockery of.
All of these singers today it the charts and the next thing you know they are walking around and calling themselves ‘pastors’…. and in the case of Kim Burrell ‘bishop.’ Personally, I don’t understand it. But when I thought about it Andrae Crouch did it and I guess a few others.
But I just thought I would do this really quick… and I did. Because this thing with Le’Andria Johnson and Preachers of Atlanta has been on my mind.
It really disturbs me to see the church… and particular the blackchurch being pulled apart in such a way as I am seeing in these shows. These programs are really undermining the fabric of the church and give an illusion that all black churches and/or churches are corrupt and/or filled with leadership which should not be in leadership… fake people pretending to know Bible and to be doing the will of God when they are really just agents of the devil seeking to destroy the church.

All I can say is why would you be so gullible and stupid when God has given us the power of discernment?
It is beyond me why people are so obsessed with these false prophets and preachers on television. Do they not read their Bible which in both the Old and New Testaments the Bible clearly warns us all to be aware of ‘false prophets.’ People whom God says when they come saying He sent them and He did not… He told them what to say and He had not. He called them ‘false’ and said beware of them.
Not long into my ride I came to realize that the woman was as crazy as a bed bug based upon the kind of things she kept saying like-
“Oh, there is another 1. Somebody looking at me and taking my picture again. I don’t know why people are always taking my picture. They just pull up beside me and just take my picture. I don’t know why everybody wants my picture. But God told me to be careful.”
Well, it didn’t take me long after ‘look another person is taking my picture again’ several times as we proceeded down the road… and I saw no one stopping to take a picture of anyone… so I soon I realized that this woman was loosing it.
As she drove she was listening to some religious radio channel and began to tell me something crazy about it and people on the radio station… that they were talking about her… calling her names, but it was okay because she knew who her master was. By this time I realized it wasn’t the world but her… and that God or possibly the devil was plaguing her mind.
People today are so confused. For 1 reason they listen to all manner of junk and sit and watch all kinds of foolishness believing in false doctrine and false teaching… and they begin to confuse themselves. Everybody they hear they grab a hold of every word those people say without filtering it for truth or whether or not it lines up with Biblical scripture.
We are told in the Bible to not have itchy ears and to not bend or follow all manner of doctrine. What sounds good may not be true… and everybody that sounds might not be true. Many of these people on TV are not godly or of God… many times they are not and I don’t care how right they may sound or true to scripture. They are masters at turning scripture around to suit their own purpose.
We do not follow a God who is of confusion or a desire to get rich. He is already rich… and everything already belongs to Him… including us.
Nor does He use and abuse us. And we cannot buy or purchase favors from Him. So, stop listening to people who make it sound like you can. You can give and give until the cows come home… but that is not what God’s honors. He honors your heart. He is not looking for your money.
God does not ask us to give our last dime in order to test us… or to test the level of our faith. God can test that … if He wanted to by any number of whys if He wanted to without money ever coming into the scenario. But He already knows our hearts. He knows who is truly His… who really loves Him… and who is doing as He has commanded.
So, stop listening to these people who are stealing your money and robbing you… who preach to you in order to make themselves rich by selling you a bunch of garbage like special water… or holy cloths… sacred pens… and who knows whatever else. People who sell you nothing but fake dreams tempting you to believe that God can be bought. You cannot pay God to make you rich… by emptying your bank account to give to some preacher on TV because he or she falsely claims it is what they did, and it worked for them. Don’t believe it… our God is not devious and does not need to send greedy people your way to deceive to take anything from you in order to bless you.
Don’t let the devil take your mind… and your money too.
Well, God bless…. Can’t believe I just finished another blog. It has been a while since I got back to writing them… been busy working on other projects. But I’m waiting on some footage to render now… so I had the time to do this. But I promise to try to be more frequent than I have been over the past year or so.
I got involved in social media and then YouTube uploading… So, I have more on my plate… but it seems people still reading what I have had to say. The proof is even when I wasn’t writing they were still reading. And I thank you for that.
