If you saw this logo plastered as a warning all over my blog, yet I claimed to be a Christian while I use explicit language, would you really believe me? Using Chance the Rapper as an example, apparently I would be. And the so-called "Christian" media would praise me and tell me how well I… Continue reading Chance the Rapper likes being called “Christian,” just don’t call his music that
Postmodern culture continues to send mixed signals on the use of cussing and vulgarity, as it does on most issues. The topic continues to be popular as evidenced by a good number of news stories that have popped up this week over foul language. One such story came from the family of NBC Universal where… Continue reading Profanities, vulgarities, and using God’s name in vain
When the saints of God pray, sing praises, or talk praises to the Lord, the Bible calls it a sacrifice of praise (Jer. 33:11; Heb. 13:15). It's an important part of our covenant relationship with him. So when I see people making fun of it, in ignorance or deliberately, it rubs me the wrong way. This… Continue reading Why do Christians encourage hypocrisy of secular artists?: Bieber & Kanye
Sean Anthony, radio host & blogger, wrote this very timely post on his “Flow of Wisdom” blog that exposes the lies not only spread in the world, but unfortunately in the church as well.
FOX has a new TV show called “Lucifer” premiering this week. During the broadcast on Flow Of Wisdom today, I shared an excerpt of the trailer.
Now the excerpt was to point out the deception not only in the television show referring to Lucifer as the morning star, but also the deception in different translations of the Bible.
Today, many bible toting self-professing Christians read different translations of the bible because most would say it’s “too difficult to read the King James Version.”
In the trailer below, beginning at :55 a female character says to the main character, “Lucifer morning star, is that a stage name? He responds, ” God-given I’m afraid.”
This is the deception I would like to point out.
In the King James Version of the scriptures, it clearly states that Christ is the “morning star” in Revelation 22:16 and Lucifer is the “son of the morning” in…

That's a question that should probably be addressed since Hitler made news again today thanks to ultra-liberal/non-Christian actress Whoopi Goldberg on "The View." Since it's a show I as a man would never waste my time watching, I found out about it through perusing headlines today. Goldberg and her co-hosts launched into a discussion about… Continue reading Would a true Christian really murder someone?
To follow up on his blasphemous hip hop hit from last year, "Holy Ghost", (which prompted a lawsuit from T. D. Jakes) secular rapper Young Jeezy has released a new single entitled "God" to blaspheme our Creator even more. I guess this guy doesn't want to be outdone by Kanye West in the blasphemy category.… Continue reading Secular rapper Young Jeezy continues blasphemy with latest single, “God”
It has been my observation over several decades in Christendom that often, when a celebrity gives a shout-out to God in some way, many of us automatically embrace their statement or supposed confession of faith because we see it as an endorsement to the world about how correct we are as Christians. Some of us see it… Continue reading Fawning over famous or new ‘believers’ not a good practice for Christians

Gospel singer Kirk Franklin recently wrote a tribute to the late Andrae Crouch, who died in January. He made note of Crouch's soul-stirring music which crossed all ethnic boundaries and made the secular world take note of his talents despite the fact he sang about Jesus. Then Franklin expressed his disappointment that the Christian music… Continue reading Does it matter how the Christian music industry is perceived?
