Amber Roof Solicits Funds: Another GoFundMe Bungle

by MullOverThis

Yup. You have read correctly.  Michael and Amber had their dreams halted, smashed, crumbled, and upset by the public shame and bombastic inconvenience her brother caused her when he decided to execute 9 human beings on the basis of race. While the nation is mourning from a hate crime which impacted the entire Charleston, South Carolina area and people who have been terribly reminded that racist venom is still vicious enough to cause a 21 year old deluded man to end the lives of innocent people, let’s not forget the other ills and consequential damages:  this lunatic’s sister is also suffering with the loss of everything she hoped and dreamed for in planning her nuptials.

See, I can understand her pain.

Truly, I can. Who can’t empathize with her having to see her brother arrested and have to face the inevitable justice system which is going to put him away for the majority of his adult life? Who can’t empathize with the horror the entire Roof family probably felt in knowing that they are connected to such a depraved human being–a loved one? But, with all of the grace we must have, we also should help fund this tootsy pop’s wedding and relate to her devastation.

Only in America, can someone have such boldness and insensitivity to even think it’s a good idea to go raise wedding money when your brother has literally terrorized a nation with a hate crime of this magnitude. Of all of the things that have transpired–massive peaceful protests, government entities addressing the Confederate flag and the ills of the wicked influences that infiltrated this brother of this nincompoop, ordering grave stones, coffins, writing obituaries, re-structuring family life from day-to-day, mourning the loss of loved ones, re-building the faith in a community and leadership in a long-standing congregation–let’s not forget this clown’s interests cut from the most pungent narcissistic depraved indifference to human life pie ever made: poopy deserves her wedding.

There really is nothing more to say to this one, other than I wonder what the rest of this Roof family has to face in the aftermath of what Dylan Roof has done. Let’s hope missing the annual berry picking contest or losing Dylan’s worth as the one who takes out the kitchen garbage isn’t on their list.

So, GoFundMe has had to knock off another unethical campaign grounded in absolute lunacy.

Mary Mary

by MullOverThis

So Mary Mary has their own reality show.

Arguably, Christians should not have “Christian” themed reality shows.  They may do more harm than good.

MullOverThis has a firm opinion about Mary Mary’s show:  they need to be real careful about towing the line.

A loud bossy woman who ain’t gonna be told what to do by no one, “but Jesus the Christ,” is not cute.  No man should have a pregnant wife who climbs on chairs while pregnant because she is obsessed with trying to compensate for her heavy workload by giving a perfect birthday party, can’t be told to stay her butt home when she is carrying his child, and the world shouldn’t think this is cute and in order.

I love Mary Mary’s music.  But, I am one who really isn’t interested in seeing too much more of an out of control “control freak” who is going to say what she wants, when she wants, and no one is going to tell her what she can say, televised while singing about Jesus.

Oh, although they clearly sing about Jesus, these two feel the need to make sure everything is perfect with big opportunities like singing for the Bishop T.D. Jakes and Oprah Winfrey.  Really? Really??  Really???  Really (100 question marks.)

Since when is it so important to a “career” that these folks smile, wink, and offer a standing ovation to know that one has been effective in MINISTRY?  Oh yeah.  That may not be the objective.  I can’t make conclusions for Mary Mary.  However, their geekedness with the who’s who is frightening. God puts up, and God determines when the career is halted.

I will be praying for these two.

Mary Mary.  I hope these two learn to truly emulate the Mary’s of the Bible and focus on Christ.

Le’Andria Johnson Pregnant Again

by MullOverThis

This is public knowledge, now.

Many are talking about the proper recourse for this gospel singer.  Should she be penalized for being pregnant when she probably is no different that others in her shoes (music artists), or worshippers who fornicate anyway?

Well, the answer isn’t complicated.  We don’t ever sanction an right response to wrong based upon what everyone else who is doing wrong is or is not enduring.  We don’t decide whether a murderer–an extreme example simply to make the point–should be dealt with justly, based upon all the other free murderers who have not been busted and sentenced.

One common response has been, she hasn’t done any wrong that everyone else hasn’t done.  Everybody does something wrong.

Let’s address that, too:

We stand before a Holy God, right now. And, when we have done wrong, we’ve got to be ACCOUNTABLE to God and to one another. So, yes, correction is appropriate. A fornicating pastor found out needs to SIT down and so does a public worshipper who can’t manage to stop fornicating. Period. The church is not refrained from its call to bring correction and maintain the standard that everything goes, cuz we all sin nonsense. Keep reading…we all fall short BUT because of Christ, we didn’t stay there. We have victory and should–at some point–conquer sin. And, if we can’t, put the mike down and work on doing just that. Be the testimony that we want to sing about.

For Le’Andria, she does depict God’s grace.  God’s grace also includes His love and reproof.  The charge for the church to bring correction and present leaders that can live what we preach and sing about must be upheld.  I’ll love Le’Andria no less.  In fact, I hope to love her even more.  However, she needs to sit her behind down and figure out how to get enough of this foot stompin, Holy Ghost movin’ power to keep her legs closed until she is in a covenant relationship with a husband.

Amen?

Amen.

Vermin Gain on Hermain Cain

by MullOverThis

Seems like Mr. Cain should have read my manual for politicians with game who think they won’t get busted.

Don’t run for office if you know you just ended a 13-year affair with a woman who had nothing to lose.  Homegirl is on television, admitting she is so low to the ground that she can kiss ants in the mouth. Is Herman Cain an ant? Only da could-be mistress, God and Herman Cain know. If he is an ant, a crawler who lives low to the ground and you can’t get much lower than that, Mrs. Cain ought to know. Thirteen years is a long time to not have a clue.

Who brags about being a woman good enough to stay in the closet for a man for 13 years?  Who?  Clearly, MullOverThis needs to supply every aspiring and veteran politician with this manual.

As the vermin gain on Mr. Cain, it will be interesting to see if he drops out, or not.  Although things smell a bit fishy, dirty campaign tactics-to dig up and supply the public with all sorts of unethical pants down with the oopsy in places where it’s not supposed be allegations-ought to backfire.

100% Fail-proof Cure-all for Arguments

by MullOverThis

The very next time you have any reason to argue with your husband, wife, mother, father, teacher, boss, cousin, crossing guard, grocer, child, friend, enemy, spiritual leader,  Judge Judy or your favorite political pundit, do yourself a favor and observe the main character in this video.  Upon completion of watching this video, adhere to the following directives.

Insert the person with whom you are about to have a potential heated discussion or argument into these formulas:

If video subject’s insanity > potential arguee’s sanity, leave the arguee alone.  You have no problems.  Take a cool or warm drink and go to bed.  Tomorrow, things will look much better.

If video subject’s insanity≤ potential arguee’s sanity, leave potential arguee alone.  You are dealing with a bonafide nutjob and you won’t be able to win your argument, or persuade arguee to a point of reason or compromise.  Your safety is more important than the argument.  Take a cool or warm drink, and go to bed.  In the morning, you’ll be glad you woke up another day.

You have just discovered a 100% fail-proof way to rationally avoid all arguments for the rest of your life.

On Zachery Tims

by MullOverThis

Pastor Zachery Tims is deceased and news reports have mentioned the presence of a white powder on his person, which is being tested.  So, the implication is that drugs may have been involved.  Additionally, news reports have succinctly described Tims as, “…pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida who divorced his wife over an affair with a hooker…”

I definitely have a firm resolve concerning Pastor Tims and the type of preacher he represents:  the man who loves God and does all that he can for people to improve their lives.  “The man” is where the murky area lies.  Regardless of one’s religious convictions or beliefs, at some point, we have to decide what is good.  I do not have the power to, or would even be willing to toss Tims or anyone like him to the dogs;  some people  do have a conscience but don’t realize how their decisions will affect them until it is too late.  God’s grace is sufficent to cover any one of us, even at the last minute.

Mulloverthis:

Is it possible to be a “good man” when you are unfaithful and dishonor your wife even in public?

Is it possible to be a “good man” when your decisions make your children fatherless?

Is it possible to be a “good man” because you have done so many great things for every one but the ones whose lives rely upon your “goodness” the most?

Does  a “good man” direct donation money to support a drug addiction?

Does a “good man” pay for hotels and  flings to accompany him with church money?

Can a man be a “great man(d) of God” if he’s not even a “good man”?

Does the crackhead who steals from his family but helps an old lady across the street become a poor soul who is a good person?

Are we allowed to really draw the line between good people and not so good people anymore?

Do the concepts of CHARACTER, INTEGRITY, ETHICS, RESPONSIBILITY, RELIABILITY, THOUGHTFULNESS, AND CONSIDERATION for people other than oneself mean anything?

Nice people do not necessarily translate into good people.

Good people often have to do things that are not nice.

What a man does, speaks much louder to what is really in his heart, than mere words.

The sum total of one’s acts does not outweigh or define the essence of a man’s character.

Good will and good intentions can kill in the absence of good character.

God certainly uses people who have not always been good.  But, I haven’t seen one instance where God used people who did not turn away from their non-goodness to become more like God.  The admirable thing about Zachery is that even in all of his struggles, he had enough faith to try and help others.  Ultimately, there is no point in representing a Christ who cannot give us the power to live a good life, especially when we plaster our faces on signs as leaders qualified to show you the way.  ZTims is not isolated in this troubled preacher identity.  We do not need ANOTHER man, who cannot live a good life, to feel more for people than to seek care for his own life.  The Kingdom of God is not a crutch for preachers’ issues and does not belong to preachers.   Preachers, SIT DOWN.  TAKE A SEAT.  You are not that important to the world.  No, you are not.  God can use anyone else to do what you do.  Go somewhere and sit down until you can be restored.  No one can blame “the church” for a man’s destructive choices.  Ask every drug addict who now lives in victory.  We are not going to gloss over mess and memorialize it as something good to make people feel good.  We have too much in Christ to continue in sin, and think church leaders should live just like men who do not KNOW God.

If there need not be any moral distinction and culpability for the kinds of ills that one man’s life exudes to become a plague in other people’s lives, and lead without adherence to the standard of what is good and right, then we owe Bin Laden an apology.

An Open Letter to Creflo Dollar

by MullOverThis

Thank you, Creflo, for revealing your feelings and suggested guidance for New Birth members who left Bishop Eddie Long and New Birth.  In doing so, you have also revealed a tremendous problem with the “Doc” syndrome and the boys club amongst pastors/preachers.   Please know that the problem has been forewarned to the Body of Christ in the Word of God, so many of us are not alarmed. Some of us are merely disappointed but will continue to be loyal to God, not the loyal to manipulative “game” Docs engage in, as demonstrated in your plea for New Birth members to forgive your friend.

First of all, Mr. Dollar, church loyalty from parishioners should never be based upon who is your friend, or not your friend.  THE BIG ESSENCE OF CREFLO DOLLAR and who you decide is friend-worthy does not credential or validate whether or not sound people with sound minds should pledge their allegiance to a pompous man who has not demonstrated a modicum of humility to the people of whom you expect loyalty. Pay attention Grand Super Doc, Creflo.  Your friend may still be going to heaven and is human just like the rest of us.  But, before he gets to heaven, he’s got some explaining to do to the Body of Christ.  When your super-buffed and wilfully dressed to show it friend cut the fool enough for him to squirmishly admit he wasn’t perfect, he admitted that there is some stuff going on.  We’d rather not have to know it, but since it amounted to lawsuits, Super Grand Doc, and he is supposed to be a Bishop, you know how this is supposed to work.

Harold Camping: A Different Kind of Doomsday

by MullOverThis

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Doomsday is here. There have been earthquakes and all kinds of quandary going on. Where, you say? In the hearts of the faithful followers of Harold Camping, and probably in the hearts of many other believers, who now have probable cause to question many things they’ve believed.

When I first learned about the end of the world coming based on Camping’s May 21, 5:59 PM prediction, what immediately came to mind was to pray for the people who emptied their bank accounts and quit their jobs because of it. His followers took to the streets to convince people to subvert the explicit message in the Bible-that no man knows the hour or the time that Jesus will return and that when he comes he will come like a thief in the night-with the implicit message coded in mathematical secrets carefully hidden in the scriptures that supposedly gives us the actual date. The last time I checked, the only thief who announces himself is one who has enough hubris to think he won’t get caught. And where there’s pride, there’s deception. And no offense to Brother Camping. I am sure he was sincere, but the consequences may be too great to bear.

The dilemma in all of this is where does a person go from here? What happens when everything you believed comes crashing to the ground? What happens when you sacrificed your life for something that has become a punchline? If such a massive prediction was wrong, then what else is wrong in the state of Denmark? And this leads me to my next thought, whatever you believe, make sure it is what YOU believe, not someone else’s conviction. One thing we love to do in this country is elevate people and make them infallible. We regard titles over integrity, gifts over character, large congregations of onlookers over small congregations of sincere people, and that leads us into a downward spiral of deception. Why? We may find that we are not gazing upon what is real, but rather fallacies designed to keep us in a state of ineffectiveness and spiritual lethargy. We are so busy looking at the sparkle that we don’t realize we are being blinded by the shine.

The bottom line is if you choose to follow this faith called Christianity, follow IT, not people. We often follow people because we never go back and check to make sure what we are learning really lines up with the Bible, as well as buy into cult of personality. I’m sure when we all examine some catchphrases we use, some doctrines we adhere to, so-called deep happenings, and things we send people to hell for, we may find that they do not hold water. Why? Because someone we highly respect told it to us and we felt too small to fact check. This is not the days of the Orthodox church of old where only one person could read the Bible while the rest were left to have it interpreted for them. And this is not pre-emancipation days where we get in trouble if Massa’ catches us readin’. And I certainly am not encouraging anyone to usurp authority and run rogue. But what I am saying is that we need to learn how to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling and not leave our lives in the hands of someone who cannot answer for us when the end finally does come. The purpose of sound leadership is to mature us in the faith so that we don’t have to wake him or her up in the middle of the night to pray for our bum pinky toe.

Sorry for the sass, grit, and mother wit, but I’m mad. I’m mad because there are people right now who probably want to commit suicide because they cannot bear the embarrassment, the weight of the disillusionment, and the fact that they will not be clocking in to work tomorrow because they quit their dream job over some arithmetic. The father who emptied his bank account may now have to explain to his children that they will no longer pray before they eat because there is no food and no God (so he thinks). Worse yet, what about the ones who think maybe they have been left behind? Yikes! It kills me to know that there is something inside of us that could allow other people to be responsible for what we believe to the point of putting us out of God’s house and into the nut house and the po’ house. Something doesn’t add up.

Work out your own salvation and leave the calculatin’ to God. Peace……………

OBAMA KILLED OSAMA!

by MullOverThis

Really?

Obama was the master-mind who authored the strategy to find and assassinate Bin Laden?  Forget the requests of the birthers.  I’d love to see Obama’s notes on this one.

I thought Kook Aid was “played out”, but people are still drinking the juice.

Or, did Obama just grant approval to the intelligence officials and military experts who have worked through various administrations to assassinate the selected face of terrorism to distract the masses from the real wicked folks-who were born and raised right here in America-who gave OSAMA fuel for his insane tank?

I won’t even delve into the question of is Osama really dead, because it really doesn’t matter. 

Two thousand bullets or bludgeoning strikes against Osama won’t kill what drove Bin Laden.  Sorry to break the real news:  Osama and his hatred for America and his distorted quest to fight holy wars for his god won’t be stopped with his so-called end. 

The real adversary and enemy of our souls is still working to cause nations to fight against nations.  So, America hasn’t won a thing.  Prayer is still necessary, and wisdom for those who make decisions for our nation will make the difference.

Re-post: me Me ME MEEEEEEEEE!

by MullOverThis

Nope, I’m not warming up for a vocal audition. I’m warming up for this blog entry. So okay people, here we go……………

While reading Matthew 13 today, I stumbled across a passage I’ve read a million times. The familiar passage was about a farmer sowing grain and what happens to the seed when it falls on different types of ground. What struck me most was the following in verse 22:

The thorny ground represents those who hear and accept the Good News, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the cares of this life and the lure of wealth, so no crop is produced.

Today it had new meaning as God used the aforementioned passage to answer a burning question I had on my heart, which was why, despite such displays of power and promises of prosperity, a certain brand of Christianity didn’t seem to truly reflect Biblical Christianity. To be extremely honest, I have a major concern with the sector of the faith that primarily focuses on prosperity, miracles, and blessings…all the time. While I am a firm believer in all of those and believe in the power of the Holy Spirit, I could not understand why despite all of the supposed displays of God’s power, the scales seemed to tip heavily on the side of gifts and light on the side of fruit. This is as opposed to churches which preach more on Christ and the kingdom and in turn seem to be more progressive in character. So where is Waldo in this? The disparity could be due to the fact that a Christ-centered gospel has been replaced with a Me-centered gospel.

What was made clear to me was that when we begin to look to God primarily to fix all of our problems and give us all that we want, we begin to crowd out, as Matthew 13:22 says, the Good News. This constant need to have the perfect life and be happy (not to be confused with joy which is not circumstantial), this constant need to have every single prayer answered with a yes, this continual need to give an offering in church to get something monetary in return versus understanding it is our obligation to support the work of Christ, causes us to crowd out the Good News and thus no crop is produced. Don’t mistake the expected crop for new cars and houses, wives and husbands, lions, tigers and bears (oh my!). That crop is the fruit we must bear to demonstrate the power of a transforming gospel. That crop is a renewed mind and the power to walk in that newness to show people the way of Christ.

When we serve God to meet our needs instead of meeting His needs, we have it backwards, and that is why we can sit under what we call the anointing, have an emotional experience, always talk about miracles and blessings, then go home and nothing inside of us has changed.  Some of us live day-to-day in disappointment because nothing spectacular has happened or no one has given us a self-aggrandizing prophecy when that is not the daily reality we are called to. According to Matthew 23:37-40, God wants us to live this way:

… “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the other commandments and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

All the other commandments hinge on those two? Wow, they must be important! The key word is love, which the Bible says is the mark of a true Christian, not your bank account, not having everything the way you want it, and not being puffed up in pride because you have access to the pastor (who has a life outside of the congregation by the way!). None of those things are impressive and none of those things guarantee spending eternity with the Father. And when we put first things first, half of the things we call problems wouldn’t be problems because we would either own our wrongdoing and change the way we do things, or we would have a different perspective and handle our situations better on the front end. If we put first things first, we wouldn’t always need a miracle to do things people who don’t believe in Christ do as second nature. We would learn that everything is not up in the sky and that the purpose of learning heavenly principles is to be an effective earthly example.

My dear friends, I hope you are not too offended by what I’ve written. I don’t want any of us to become like the Corinthians, flowing in gifts of every sort but bearing no fruit. I want you to live your best life and stop going in circles trying to have all of your problems magically solved. Take things one day at a time, let God transform you, seek His kingdom first, and when you take care of His business, He will take care of yours. And guess what people? THAT is prosperity!

Adios y Dios te bendiga!
