The leader of a Missionary Baptist assembly in California is defending the use of a profane secular rap song during a recent Sunday service, saying that he believes the men of the Scriptures likely used edgy language and that he curses in prayer sometimes himself.
Several youth performed a dance to Jay-Z’s “The Story of O.J.” on July 30 before the congregation of Tree of Life Missionary Baptist Church as a lead-in to a sermon delivered by Marcus Murchinson. He had reportedly advised the congregation weeks in advance that his message would be “out of the box” and also provided a disclaimer prior to the interpretive dance.
The song, which repeatedly uses the “n” word in reference to African Americans, also is blotted with expletives.
“Financial freedom my only hope/[Expletive] livin’ rich and dyin’ broke/I bought some artwork for one million/Two years later, that [expletive] worth two million/Few years later, that [expletive] worth eight million/I can’t wait to give this [expletive] to my children,” the lyrics read in part… read more
Should We Be Cussing Or Using Profanity Words
WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT OUR MOUTH? Under openbible.info here is a list of scriptures of what God says about what we say concerning our mouth and heart. Yes, our heart is involved when we speak. Let’s take a look below at a couple of scriptures:
Colossians 3:8 ESV But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.
Ephesians 4:29 ESV Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.….
I have been so conflicted about writing what you are about to read. I finally went to my daughter to ask permission to write about her traumatic experience in the church. Yesterday, she gave me permission to tell her story.
Seeker Friendly Church
Back in the early 90’s, we had heard of a church in our area which had a large and very active youth program. We have 3 kids, and they had even heard about this church and wanted to attend – and so we did.
Our daughter was 12 years old when we first went to the church. I am not naming the church in this article. They were made aware of what happened about 3 years ago (when we found out from our daughter).<!–more–>
opinion: We have had our fair share of churches because of how we teach on the bible. We were called “doom and gloom”. This is where LHWM online came from.
“We are a ministry that teaches God’s word through living scripture from the Holy Bible that leads and points to Jesus, not us. People are dying, hurting, struggling, not knowing, lost, abused and much more in this fallen world we live in. Time is running thin and more people are facing life changing events each day. If you are looking to be set right with God, restored and reinstated then Holy Scripture will do this (Galatians 6:1). We provide that necessary teaching.<!–more–>”
We do not sugar coat the Word of God and we are what Ezekiel says”
Ezekiel 33:6 “But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.” (Amplified Bible)
Cannot express how important it is to make sure the church your attending serves God and fears God not man. One of the churches we attended made a statement on “God will bow before us“. This was very disturbing when I heard those words and it disturbed me on the inside. Again be aware of where your attending church because God will hold us accountable.

Bible verses about exposing evil
It absolutely saddens and disgusts me by the amount of fake Christians in Christianity. Most people who call themselves Christians in America will be
thrown into hell. They’re rebellious towards the Word of God and when someone rebukes them they say, “thou shall not judge.”
First, that verse is talking about hypocritical judging. Second, if you live a continuous sinful lifestyle you’re not a true Christian because you’re supposed to be a new creation. I’ve even heard someone say, “I don’t care if she is a satanist don’t judge anyone” I literally almost caught a heart attack.
People don’t like their evil exposed and people don’t like you exposing anyone else so you don’t expose them. These so-called believers today will go against God’s Word and stand up for the devil and fight against God by condoning and supporting wickedness…. read more
Last week the Presidential Inauguration Committee announced that Paula White, Senior Pastor of the New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, would take part in the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect Donald Trump. Several prominent Christian leaders and writers took issue with White’s invitation because they are concerned about her theology receiving mainstream attention.
Writing at The Resurgent, Erick Erickson proclaimed White to be a “Trinity-denying heretic” and said he would rather have a Hindu pray at the inauguration than a person who claims to believe in Jesus but doesn’t really, and who would thus would lead many astray. He linked to a video of White arguing that Jesus was not the only-begotten Son of God and showed that the earliest Christian creeds and councils condemned what she teaches as heresy and outside the bounds of Christian orthodoxy… [read more]
lhwm notes: Pray for the Truth to be revealed. Stay in the Word of God yourself, because if your not in the word of God then you can quickly become confused and lost. They make it sound so good. A little bit of scripture and a lot of man. Beware of false prophets, no matter who they are. Even US LHWM, read your bible and compare what we are saying to God’s Word. We should always take what someone says and line it up with scripture. We should be following Jesus, not man (pastor, teacher, friend, family etc.). A pastor or teacher should teach you God’s Word (ALL OF IT) and read straight from the bible and say “GOD SAYS or THE BIBLE SAYS”. God Bless and stay in the Word of God.

Talk show host Oprah Winfrey recently appeared on the “T.D. Jakes Show,” where she urged viewers to vote for Hillary Clinton, stating that “you don’t have to like her” to vote for her.
During the broadcast, Jakes, leader of the Potter’s House megachurch in Dallas, Texas, asked Winfrey how the country can be unified rather than divided.
“We have focused so much on what divides us, rather than what unites us,” he said. “You brought all types of people together that normally would not be. How are we going to get that back in this country?”
Winfrey replied by praising Jakes for his television program on the OWN Network, opining that there is no platform for “public discourse” about the issues. She also divulged why she hasn’t been outspoken herself…. [read more]
If your professing to be a Christian then your not going to say this?!?! Stop listening to falseness and start READING the BIBLE!
lhwm notes: Be careful who get your information from. They are not God! The bible warns of people speaking falseness. There are many pastors and people who speak against Jesus Christ, but our responsibility is to make sure we avoid such people and pray for them.
- Are You Attending a False or True Church
- False Prophet – Are You Listening To One
Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you dressed as sheep, but inside they are devouring wolves.
So many people go around saying they are a Christian! WHY? What does it mean to be a Christian?
The war is on Believers. Get ready and be prepared!
After struggling with her Christianity 14 years ago, and coming out as gay, Angela Caddell told ABC News that having a beer and talking about Jesus helps her be more connected to her religion.
An event called, “Jesus & Beer,” is a part of an effort by some Christian groups throughout the country used to recruit parishioners, connect with others struggling in their faith, or provide an outlet to talk about faith.
“If you’re an atheist you are welcome. …. I’m a lesbian, I’m totally welcome,” Caddell said.
Pastor Brandon Brown from CollectiveMKE began the gatherings once a month at bars in a local area of Wisconsin.
Brown does not have a stand-alone church and began non-traditional gatherings that would attract more than just social conservatives. Two dozen people attend his event….. [read more]
lhwm notes: Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also. 2 Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete what is lacking [in your obedience to it]. 3 For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself.
Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
This is not scriptural and will lead many astray. If you are truly seeking Jesus then if you attend a place like this you will know it is not quite right. It will cause an uneasiness inside of you when you are not where you should be. The holy spirit’s job is to John 14:26 But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.
Do you know Christ? Are you an unhappy Christian? Have you lost your first Love?
Paula White, senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center and Without Walls International Church, attends the 35th Anniversary Celebration for Bishop T.D. Jakes at the AT&T Performing Arts Center/Winspear Opera House on June 8, 2012, in Dallas, Texas. Longtime televangelist and senior Pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, Paula White offered her followers an Easter Sunday deliverance from a spiritual death sentence for a $1,144 “resurrection seed” she says was set by God.
Preaching the story of Lazarus who Jesus resurrected from the dead in John 11:38-44, White promised believers in a video appeal that if they would sow the seed and have faith, she believed deliverance would come….. [read more]
LHWM Notes: This saddens my heart that preachers of God do not even think about HIM. This is false teaching and if you think it is true then my question would be where does it say you give money to have a relationship with Jesus. As a ministry we never ask for money, and if we have a church one day we will place the offering in the back of the church. We will not pass around a plate or box. It says to be a cheerful giver!
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 English Standard Version (ESV)
6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
God does say to tithe, but people pervert this and make it what they want it to say. It is also between you and God. He knows everything that we do, say, think, act, live and etc… Please do not be fooled by these false pastors for they are everywhere. Paula White is not the only one doing this.
A new church in Detroit has the blessing of six different congregations and meets in a school funded by the pockets of Ellen DeGeneres and Justin Bieber, among others.
The Detroit Church launched this weekend in Detroit’s Spain Elementary-Middle School. “We’ve been invited to take part in the greatest adventure of all time. This adventure is turning brokenness into life and making everything new. The only question is, are you in?” the church website reads.
The school was partially funded by a donation from comedienne and talk show host DeGeneres, according to the Detroit Free Press. DFP also reports Bieber will donate $1 from every ticket sold to his April 25 concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills to the school….. [read more]
LHWM Notes: Now a days you cannot even believe when someone says they are a Christian, because of what they believe a Christian should be. People would call that judging, but actually scripture says you will know them by their fruit (Matthew 7:15-20).
So what are we saying…..
What we are saying is the Gospel is still being water downed. We all know that DeGeneres is married to a woman, and we know the lifestyle they both live. They choose a life outside the gospel of Jesus Christ. Where in their lifestyle is proof of TRUE SCRIPTURE BEING LIVED OUT DAILY?
That is called their fruit. Their life represents what they believe. There is so much to be said here, but if you know scripture then you know what is going to happen, you know what this article means, and you know what damage it will do to the people who go there. If you do not know scripture, then here is a small list (and we mean small) of how this will not serve Jesus:
1. What they believe in
2. Scripture should be a two edged sword
3. You should be convicted of your sins
4. You should want to repent of your sins
5. You should know why You Need Jesus (not a religious answer)
6. They should teach you how to become a Disciple of Christ
These are just a few. If this place is funded by these two people then the True Gospel will be tossed aside, and only the parts they like will be listened to and taught. God is one, and the bible is one. It is the WORD OF GOD not the Words of God. With all this being said we hope you and your family are being prepared for Christ return.
