More than 1,000 people committed their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior at Kanye West's latest Sunday Service. Calling it "a new wave revival", a Louisiana pastor said 1,000 Christians raised their hands and committed their lives to Christ at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Friday night.

"In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, I witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior!" said Pastor Curvine Brewington, of Crossroads Church in Lafayette, Louisiana.


 

But the evening didn't end without some controversy. There were complaints that organizers sold "brunch" for $55 a plate. At least one woman demanding her money back for unsavory-looking food, according to Dailymail.com.

Kimberly Kinchen posted a Facebook image of her plate that she says she paid $55 for. The meal consisted of 2 pancakes, what appears to be a sausage patty and 2 slices of bacon. Kitchen was not satisfied after taking 2 bites of the pancakes.

Kitchen contacted a local news station to complain. "Can y'all cover a story on this because I want my coins back. This is the wonderful & COLD brunch BUFFET we are being served," she said, adding, "the server looked at me crazy when I asked for another pancake."

More than 1,000 people attended the 'Brunchella' church service in Louisiana on Friday to hear the anointed one, Kanye, speak and perform selections from his No. 1 album, Jesus Is King.

Kanye brought three of his four children - North West, 6, Saint West, 3, and Chicago West, 22 months - to witness the revival.

Kanye, who is on the autism spectrum, understands better than most that young people need Jesus more than ever.

Pastor Brewington posted a photo that showed hundreds of worshipers raising their hands during an alter call.

"If you've ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this Sunday service project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @the.smitan during the altar call. YES, I said ALTAR CALL," Brewington wrote.

"Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given," he added.

Kanye West's plan to take his popular "Sunday Service" gospel revival to Jamaica has angered local pastors there.

The rap producer is debuting his revival in Kingston's Emancipation Park on the Caribbean island on Friday night, but local pastors have taken exception to his plans.

The island country is deeply religious and the Jamaican people consider themselves Christians. They take the Word of God very literally.

Religious leaders in Jamaica question the star's commitment to God, despite West's claims he is a born-again Christian.

"I don't know him (West) as a Christian and someone who is being led by the Holy Spirit," local pastor Stephen Blake told the Jamaica Star, according to WENN.com. "We have to examine the motive here."

They are suspicious of West's plan to take a team to the venue to cleanse it of impure spirits before the Sunday Service.

"From a spiritual perspective, I am not 100 per cent comfortable," Blake explained. "Therefore, I am calling for the church to pray against this, just in case there is anything negative associated with this service that Kanye is coming to Jamaica to keep."

The clergyman expressed fears the "Jesus Walks" musician is embracing religion for publicity or personal profit.

"Some say that he is the Antichrist," Blake said. "Him go mad one day, then him say Trump the next day, and then him come with religion. If his motive is to get attention and stay relevant, then that is wrong."

Another local minister, Father Sean Major-Campbell, advised "caution" over the star's motives but thought the event was just an "entertainment option".

Others, including Jamaican dancehall producer Cordel 'Skatta' Burrell, are angry over the disruption brought by West's event, which has been backed by the Jamaica Tourist Board.

Burrell added: "His Jesus agenda is solely for the benefit of generating sales for his upcoming gospel album and he's only playing chess."

The rapper's gospel album, Jesus Is King, and an accompanying documentary film are due out next Friday, Oct. 25.

This is the first time West has taken his Sunday Service gospel revival outside the U.S.

A scandalous video featuring a man who resembles Pastor David Wilson of Texarkana, Texas, and a woman who is not his wife has gone viral on social media.

The video shows the man performing a sex act on a woman. But a family member says the video isn't real and someone is trying to ruin the minister's good name.

The elder Wilson is the senior pastor of Bibleway Ministries and World Out Reach Inc. in Texas.

"I'm a minister of 32 years, have pastored for 25. I'm a motivator and Love to see lives transformed to the Glory of God," Wilson says on his website.

But his critics say Wilson is only motivated to chase skirts in the church.

Wilson's daughter says the man in the video is not her father. She said the scandalous video is a case of mistaken identity.

"Sometimes we unknowingly share our names with complete strangers. But that does NOT mean we share the same Mission or Faith! I am the daughter of the Great Doctor David E. Wilson. This other David E. Wilson is a man who just so happens to share same name as him."

Correction: according to a loyal reader, the daughter was referring to her father - another pastor with the same name from Dallas TX - after trolls swarmed her dad's Facebook page because the pastor from Texarkana TX (who is in the video) deleted his FB page.

The sex scandal unfolded when someone uploaded the X-rated video to Twitter. The video shows a man of the cloth perfuming cunnilingus on a woman.

The video was captioned: "Pastor Wilson out here doing the lords work."

"That's not the first lady," commented one church parishioner.

Another Twitter user commented: "The Pastor out here speaking in tongues."

And a third Twitter user wrote: "Dam what church is this how do I become a member ASAP pastor knows what he's doing tho amen."

Sandrarose.com is a family-oriented blog, and as such, I will not post the vulgar video. But it isn't difficult to find if you know where to look.

A Florida church is ministering to the unwashed masses - one strip club at a time. The Newsound Church, which currently worships out of West Palm Beach high school on Sundays, purchased the old Double Dee's Ranch strip club to house its congregation.

Parishioners are well aware of the sinful behaviors that went on inside the Double Dee's Ranch, but their motto is, "Let the sinless amongst you cast the first stone."

"I don't mind being in a building that was a strip club any more than I mind somebody walking in our doors that had at one time in their life been a stripper," Pastor Josh Mauney told CBS Miami. "We believe we can bring hope and healing to any location, that's what we're trying to do."

Mauney says he expects the new church to open its doors next year. He also expects to welcome some of the strip club's former customers into his flock.

According to the NY Daily News, the new church will hold 600 to 700 worshipers once they remove the stripper poles.

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris felt "exploited" when he and his long-suffering wife Tameka Harris attended Kanye West's Sunday Service at the invitation of mega church leader Jamal Bryant.

T.I. explained what was going through his mind in the photo below as he attended Kanye's Sunday service at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta last weekend.

The "I'm Serious" rapper captioned the image, "Yeaaahhh Maaaan We MUST discuss what caused this look on my face in Sunday Service...."

T.I. said he was offended by the church shaking him down for a generous tithe before the service.

"When we sat down there was a whole new agenda. It was like they rung the red bell at the Player's Club," T.I. said, referring to the hit movie starring the late comedian Bernie Mac, and actors Jamie Foxx and LisaRaye.

“It's not that I have [anything] against pastors or against preachers so-to-speak. It's just I've been raised in the trenches and I was taught to peep game. You ain't [about to] run no game on me. I will not be extorted."

T.I.'s statement prompted Byrant to deny the allegations. In short, Bryant claims he nor his church put pressure on the rappers to open their wallets and tithe to the church.

"I don't want Sunday to be used as further ammunition as to why people don’t go to church without them knowing at this same church we gave 5000 pairs of new back to school shoes to kids of #Atlanta, or that we spearheaded 9 million campaign to support @bennett_college , or that we bailed out nonviolent offenders or that we partnered with @delta to send 4 cargo to #Bahamas for hurricane release or that we’ve partnered with @_hamptonu to place 95 displaced students or that we fed the furloughed workers for two weeks while the government was shut down or that we went into housing projects to feed kids of #dekalb county during spring break. For none of these projects were you solicited for a donation."

Joel Osteen defended his decision not to provide shelter to Hurricane Harvey victims in Houston until he was shamed into opening his massive Lakewood Church late Tuesday.

Osteen, 52, defended his actions in an interview with the Today Show Wednesday morning. The prosperity preacher said the widespread flooding in Houston caused "safety issues" and the city didn't ask him to open his doors.

Most churches collect tithes to pay salaries, utility bills, maintenance and repairs, the pastor's Bentley payments, etc. Churches require their flock to voluntarily drop one tenth of their annual income into the collection plate.

Skeptical parishioners can demand an accurate accounting of where their tithes go if they suspect improper record keeping. That's how parishioners discovered Rev. Peter Miqueli stole over $1 million from the collection plate to finance his fantasy homosexual lifestyle.
