gospel

A young lady in a church choir belts out "I Know I've Been Changed," the gospel song off LaShun Pace's 1991 album "He Lives". The song was also recorded by gospel group the Mighty Clouds of Joy, and was the first major successful play by playwright Tyler Perry.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    The main reason why blacks are so hard up in America today is because we GRATEFULLY accept Christianity and its teachings of enslavement. And like our ancestors before us we also accept the way of the world as just and or in need of prayer. Instead of denouncing this world for what it is. Not looking for a "God" to fix anything and willfully believing that the world is just within his eyes........

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    We can accept Jesus and still call a person on their mess and hold them accountable.

    When I forgive someone, it is not about them, it is about my peace of mind. And a true believer knows:
    1. Prayer without works is dead....so you HAVE to do the work to see your prayers fulfilled.
    2. A no is not always no, it can sometimes be a delay as you are not ready for it
    3. There are those who behave the way you wrote, but it is because they don't have their own understanding and relationship with God.

    I don't think many of us here gratefully accept anything, but instead choose to gain a full and educated understanding of everything, while still living by Faith in The Word.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I love how "they" always come in here with "Blacks" do XYZ...........and then be like Sway- NO ANSWERS

  • Jefferey Franklin

    To accept that we as a species are our own enemy and willfully enslave each other for the ultimate purpose of the greed, wealth, and unjustified glory. To denounce religion as a whole and stop passing the buck onto imaginary entities instead of admitting that the only reason the world is messed up is because of us PERIOD. Blacks need to distance from White Jesus, because White Jesus is the same lie that was used to justify slavery, which essentially indoctrinated our people to believe that we are supposed to be slaves in God eyes. Which only increased our dependency on the fallacy of Gods mercy. When it was never God's mercy we needed. It was white people's.....and of course because they are hate filled son's of B's that mercy was never provided. 200 years later we are still praying to God for deliverance. While whites have gotten they power and control over the world. You think they praising GOD or laughing at us?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Last I knew slavery was present in the Quran AND the Hebrew Bible of the Jews as well. No? So...what religion are you that it is absent?

  • DJ

    I agree. I don't believe in God as a separate entity floating in the sky. God resides within an individual; love of self=love of God. They are 2 in the same. If one become truly aware, love and accepts oneself, then they love God. People need to stop looking for God through other men and other external factors and search within; he/she is already there.

    Also, I don't believe in any religion. Religion is the ultimate hindrance.

  • SpiceGirl

    WE BOTH said the same thing. And BOFF said "mine". I cant today with this ignorance.

  • Buttercup
  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Apparently! SMDH

  • Jefferey Franklin

    But you have yet to hold God accountable. At what point will God provide the black man with our sanctity and sanity? Are are we supposed to have blind faith in a failed emergence of his power? We are still under white supremacy and not just in America this is around the world. Under the thumb of white power every you look the black race much worse then every one else. They live to keep us under. How much faith do you have to keep praying for something that for hundreds of years did not happen. We have to mentally stronger.....and believing in God with nothing to hold down that belief but "faith" is a redundant mindset. Imo.....I can not deny the good that religion has given people, as far as hope, resilience, and faith in self. But as far as what its given black people as a whole.......I complete denounce is purpose.

  • KDub

    As if some of the slaves that ended up here were not Muslim. Ive read up to 10% of them were. Maybe more bc nobody REALLY knows. You dont believe in any type of higher being. Okay. That is cool. But dont take it as an oppty to try to call out Christians. Slavery was present in EVERY aspect of pre-modern society. Jews and Muslims too.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Neither The Quran nor The Hebrew Bible were used to justify American slavery were they? So why would that even come into this conversation if not for deflection?

  • hi-liter

    Then I remember one morning he woke up and said "Some days I just don't know anymore".

  • Buttercup

    So just because a group of people use something for selfish gain, that very thing is invalid? By that logic, I guess it's safe to say you are against folks having guns, because they have been used to kill people. Have you ever heard of the term manipulation?

  • Yoni7

    Oh. Should I go back and read?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I cannot speak for everyone and will not, but I can say that I hold myself accountable for most of my problems and issues, as God never said that trouble won't come, just said it it won't last.

    You cannot come in here denouncing people's faith, as Christians are not the only folks who were enslaved and suffer.....so should we denounce ALL religions and toss all of them out? Seriously, if Faith keeps a person going- and I mean Faith in whatever you believe in- what is the problem.

    Perhaps if folks understood that in addition to having Faith, they also need to do the work and ofter accept that the life they "WANT" isn't the life they were meant to have---that would be helpful.

    You are double talking, as you said that faith can give people "hope, resilience, and faith in self.
    But then said- "But as far as what its given black people as a whole.......I complete denounce is purpose."
    What if those slaves who lived by Faith and therefore put their lives on the line to fight tooth and nail for freedom didn't have the "hope, resilience, and faith in self" to push forward?
    What if those leaders like Medgar Evers, didn't have the "hope, resilience, and faith in self" that their Faith and religious belief instilled in them...didn't use that to fight and push forward?

    The issue you have are those who just go by what the pastor, preacher, whomever tells them and who does not look for the truth for themselves--that is a different case.

  • KDub

    Bc it was present in both books of religious works. "we GRATEFULLY accept Christianity and its teachings of enslavement." If Islam was the majority religion here or Judaism, or even the religion of our oppresors, then yes it probably WOULD be used to justify it. But it was not and IS not. The ones who imposed the great heavy burden of slavery upon us were Christians. And if we took the time to educate you on all 3 Abrahamic religions in GENERAL and how they ALL lend themselves to one another, you would also see a few things on how its not all on Christians and how it was brung into this convo. But you stay passionate.

  • nucynu25

    I agree to an extent but surely religion isn't the sole purpose of the negative states of blks ..

  • Jefferey Franklin

    A gun is an actuality. We can see, hear, and feel its power and or wrath if used improperly. Yes a person would be wise to be against people who have guns because we can the destruction that guns have on society.

    The problem is God, Allah, Buddah, or whatever mass entity many like to believe in, is there is no actuality of existence. If a child told from birth that the boogie is man is real and the boogie man wants the child to kill people, and that child grows up to actually start killing people. Is the child wrong? If yes, how and why? This is the belief he was taught from birth. When he doubted his parents told him to have faith, when he disobeyed his teachings he was punished, when he spoke out against the teachings he was silenced. So him growing up to be a serial killer, is only him having faith in his belief.

    You can argue the comparison is asinine as the bible doesn't doesn't teach murder(a point we could heavily debate as well) but the point is the indoctrination of the child who is made to believe that his chosen path in life is to kill......is only a child who is believing what he has been taught.....and much like the black generational mind that has been passed down Christianity since the days of slavery....the child knows no better. We don't know better. And for those of us who tend to want to explore the realities of such archaic beliefs....we are made to be seen as fools or heathens. Why is that?

    Not by far, it is one of the flaws that the black American shares as a whole though. I offer no answer as to what we should believe as a people however. Just the pretense of the Christian religion that was forced on us is not an organic relationship and we should be more aware of this fact.

  • KDub

    Im so sorry about ALL of this. God is GOOD.

  • Buttercup

    The assumptions is where you went wrong. My parents as well as the parents of many of my family and friends didn't dictate the teachings of Christianity. In fact, my parents made it a point to educate us on all types of religion, being agnostic, being atheist, etc. Being a follower of Christ was not forced upon me. It was my choice. I stood before the congregation of my home church and professed that I believe Jesus Christ died so that I may have everlasting life. No one forced me to do that.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Are you black?

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Islam is used to justify Terrorism, Judaism is used to endorse biting baby dicks, and Catholicism is used to endorse pedophilia(the way they protect their priest you can't tell me different) you have to get out the mind frame this is an attack on Christianity, its an attack on ALL religion, because its all nonsense and has been so politically corrupted and used to enslave not only minds but our physical beings as well.

  • DJ

    Thank you.

  • Buttercup

    I hope so, Sis. At the same time, he loves comics, his favorite genre of book is Sci-Fi and you know we don't live in an area where there is a good balance of skinfolk. I don't want him grow up and be the kind of man who say, "Black women never paid me any attention because of my interests."

  • Buttercup

    Oh goodness, Mirs. My heart goes out to you. I am grateful that she is safe.

  • nucynu25

    I agree with your thoughts more than disagree but it seems you missed the point of my question .

  • KDub

    You came in the DOOR as an ATTACK on Christianity. You have SINCE changed your tune. But this is not what you ORIGINALLY said and you know its not.

    "The main reason why blacks are so hard up in America today is because we GRATEFULLY accept Christianity and its teachings of enslavement. And like our ancestors before us we also accept the way of the world as just and or in need of prayer. Instead of denouncing this world for what it is. Not looking for a "God" to fix anything and willfully believing that the world is just within his eyes........"

    You didnt say Allah. You didnt say not ONE thing about Jews. You didnt say anything other than items about Christianity

  • Jefferey Franklin

    People will have success and or hardship regardless of what they believe. Faith is a fallacy and sorry to say a bogus cop out. Its meaning has truly no other definition then blind trust. That regardless of your outcome that what you believe will see you through. But outside of that, the word has no power. And I despise people who use it as a backbone of belief. You spoke of faith in self, which is by far different then faith in God. Faith in self is real, you can control your actions and results. Faith in God is rolling the dice that "it might work" And if does then All glory to God, and if it doesn't......then "all glory to God"..........its like a catch 22 which is why I call it a cop out.

    Again. An ATTACK on Christianity. "Neither The Quran nor The Hebrew Bible were used to justify American slavery were they? So why would that even come into this conversation if not for deflection?"

  • Buttercup

    You know that tune changed, because we pointed out flaws in that argument.

  • hottlanta

    Comey saying I am the wrong mofo to fuyk with. They still ain't gonna impeach his azz for that lie.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Well the post was in relation to Jesus was it not? Like I said earlier you fanatics read what you want to read. If you pay attention I've never paid homage to one specific religion over the other. Stop deflecting and nit picking as well as pretending that your don't put your chosen religion over others, while being a hypocrite and using your own foul hypocrisy to justify your position.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Are you dense? We are clearly having 2 different conversations.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    A. I am NOT a fanatic--ain't even a "good" Christian most days
    B. I read your entire post and took in what you were saying and my comment agrees and disagrees with you.
    C. My narrative suits my life and someone else's narrative will suit theirs- unlike you, I am not lumping people's belief into one way and one rule.
    D. Your snide Brotha was lame, try again and do better

  • MissyJ

    What did they say in the meeting? Will your location close?

  • KDub

    If you pay attention I've never paid homage to one specific religion over the other

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Reading comp is on POINT. Yes. YOU DID

    "Neither The Quran nor The Hebrew Bible were used to justify American slavery were they? So why would that even come into this conversation ?"

    So bc they were not used to hear YOU tell it to "justify" slavery they should NOT be brung into the conversation. You are a walking contridiction. And for the record I am probably the LEAST religious person HERE. I believe in God and identify as a Christian but that is as far as it goes. Im not a steady or even regular church goer etc. So to keep calling me a religion fanatic etc is VERY far off base. It is comical. I am however, one of the most TOLERANT persons here. You need a diversity class.

    New post. Heroine Harvey 20th husband

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Faith requires work---if a person sits around and relies soley on Faith- then, as I said they did not read the Word or they did not understand it.
    You can have Faith in self and God/Allah/Etc.
    How can you call someone's belief a cop out? That is demeaning to what they do and who they are, simply because you don't feel/think the same/.

    That in itself is one of the problems with the "Black" community- folks belittling others simply because they think differently, instead of embracing those differences......but it, just like what you wrote, isn't solely a "black" thing.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    The distinction of my original point and the overall nature of my total discern over religion in general are 2 different things sir. You attempting to to participate in a tit for tat conversation as opposed to directly engaging with thoughtful MEANINGFUL comments. Unless you can get out your feelings and your overly emotional need to feel "persecuted" then there is no need to further continue this conversation. Regardless what you believe intellect is still very much a requirement that is needed to convey your beliefs sir. If I wanted to talk to a ignorant Jesus Freak I would find a much more appropriate venue to do so.

    Exactly, every guy I met and I tell them I'm not Christian it's taboo! Do we not realize religion specifically Christianity has been used as a control mechanism to keep us docile since our arrival here? Be poor on earth and pray that you make it to heaven for everlasting riches and salvation? It just doesn't make sense! Do I believe in a higher being? YES. Will I allow white supremacist to make an azz out of me and be content praying for a better everlasting life no. Most blacks in the world are living in hell now! While alot of others are living in heaven now. Fed the phuck up!

    Awww... this is one of the reasons i am not always so tough on interracial couple unless they all Tyresesy with the shits. As women we sometimes tend to not take some of the blame for why our men run to cave demons . Ive heard it countless times from professional men that blk women were the hardest on them growing up bc they were nerds or just not cool enough & the Beckys were the only ones who were willing to show interest .Lil'butter will be fine tho .. he seems very well rounded & if anyone doesnt see that ..their lost .

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    How does the Bible promote docility and the Lord instructed His people to go into certain lands and take it by force, but ensured they would win, as He ordained the land theirs.

    Sending people into an occupied land to take it by force sounds docile to you?

    But, I digress

  • Yoni7

    If a person sits around and relies solely on God to do anything for them....then they are lost sir. I've know people extremely blessed that do not believe in God nor do they practice Christianity. Good hearted beautiful people. And I know people who go to church 4 times a week and cant catch a break to save their lives. You can hold firm to the belief that God will make your way if you praise him and give him all the glory and all that nonsense. But the truth is.....you going to get your ups and down regardless. You going have your wins and losses regardless. People like you want to believe that their is a rhyme and reason to your wins and loses. People like me know that I could be up and down the next minute. I don't hold fast to belief systems that are detrimental to my mental.

I can live with the pain but know I need to get healthier. I am asking you pray that I will be able to get in a school district that is close to my home. Right now I travel over 25 miles to work one way each day . This job would be five minutes and no more than 15 minutes to work each day! I travel between schools but non would be more than 15 minutes away!!! I would be able to go the gym right after work and get this weight OFF! I interview today!!!

    And what of all the children who were taught to be Christians, or Muslims, or what ever other religious beliefs that were strongly taught in the household?

  • KDub

    Prayers for you too hun. It is yours.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    But you can't breh. You can't claim to be a believer in any religious text and claim to understand the redundancy of religion. Its like a crackhead smoking rock, and claiming to understand the destruction of the drug has on his community and self, but still smokes the same rock everyday.......yeah you are aware of the destruction but you still are part of that destruction.....or in your case redundancy. Imo.......

    Willful ignorance ironically is the definition of a Black American Christian, but I digress, yall keep praising yall white daddy,

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

  • Renee Bee

    Boom! I received it! Abundant blessings!

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Prof. Taco Juice

    May you receive deserved blessings. Sometimes when we are in trying times, something greater than what we expected comes along. Had a similar experience a few years ago and it takes a strong will to pull through.

    I AM PRAYING FOR YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST TO LET HIS WILL BE DONE, AND BLESS ALL OF YOUR REQUESTS! PRAISE & THANK HIM IN ADVANCE

    I don't take any prescription medicine except Naproxen on occasion. Naproxen is what Alleive is which you can buy over the counter. It's just my Naproxen is 500 mg. I don't even take it everyday. I'm trying to do this holistically and naturally. I don't want to become addicted to pain meds. I know so many people that took/take pain meds and had to keep increasing the dosage and still they were in great pain.i started off trying pain meds but I quit . I will post later what I do each day , I'm getting prepared for an interview.

    The bible is not full of contradictins you just don't have any understanding of what you are reading.

  • nucynu25

    Bish I grew up in church .. there are plenty of contradictions in the bible . That has nothing to with comprehension. The same bible your dumb ass worships is the same one that tells you to obey your earthly masters .Think before you font to me bitch.

  • 88

    What you fail to understand is we (so called Blacks, Hispanics and Native indians) are under our enemies because we broke God's laws that's why we went into slavery. Until you realize this and repent then he will put our enemies to death if you choose not to do this we will REMAIN in our position.

  • imright

    ok & good luck

  • 88

    You went to the church that was set up by your slave master and you think you have some understanding? Lol you negroes get dumber by the minute, if there are MANY contradictions in the bible as you have been programmed by your slave master to believe list them.

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    Father God touch the hands that receive this young lady into the interview. May you be diligent in the decision making process and let your will be done for her to be selected. While she struggles with her health, may it not be forever and may you just be swift in bringing her increase in health, spirit and income. Amen. <3 msgreenminustheency

    I stand with you in prayer. May God's will be done. May you have peace with God's decision! Be blessed!

  • StrongYardWoman

    Sis, my prayers are with you on this. My mom had Alzheimer before she passed. The key for her was getting the medicine patch put on her back every morning. My sister that was supposed to be taking care of her - had her own agenda - she would not put the patch on every day, or put it on at night. Also, always make sure the person that puts on the patch write the date and their initials daily. This was how we found out my disgusting sister was not taking care of our mother. Once we know your mom is okay; I will share a funny store about my mom disappearing for a few hours. It was funny after the fact. Many prayers for her safe return sis.

    I know I am tardy to the party; but, where did she bury her head in the sand! I want to make sure I don't make the same mistake. Please and thank you.

  • StrongYardWoman

    Good question.

  • StrongYardWoman

    May the church, mosque, synagogue say "Amen", or whatever words they use!

  • StrongYardWoman

    On a daily basis, I wish people would remember "Blacks" are not monolithic.

    Tumeric and ginger root are good. Pineapple helps with inflammation. Consider acupuncture and massage therapy as well. Yoga too!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Thank you!!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Thank you so much!!!! I had a conditional hire!!! I just need copies of some paperwork and if I can get this to her by Wednesday I can have orientation Friday and start!!! God is so good!!! I thank you for the prayers!!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I was comfortable in job but it is a burden on me traveling so far. I just stepped out on faith and God blessed me! I won't have to travel from school to school anymore either. I will work all day long in one class. I am still going through some things but at the end of this adversity I know God has something great and you just allowed me to receive confirmation.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Thank you!!! I received it and I had a great interview! I should start next week!!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Wow @Rahab left some great advice if you can see that comment. I had a great interview by the way! Now on to this fibromyalgia , I am doing much better but I have rough moments . Right now I am under a little stress and I had to travel a lot this weekend. That's hard on my body sitting one position for a long period. One thing I do is detox twice a year. I do a whole body vegetarian/natural cleanse and a liver detox that is vegetarian as well. Then I during ginger tea everyday , I use fresh ginger. I do stretches that I can sit in a chair and get my body more limber . I also do deep breathing exercises too. Lastly I watch my diet and stay away from a lot of processed food as possible. I do have some weaknesses but if I eat too much of it I am sore. If I eat healthy I feel better. For weekly detox i drink Yogi detox tea. I drink chamomile tea at night and last but not least I pray . I must have faith in my life.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso
