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.

MassaPassa Paul White

by MullOverThis

Only in the celebrity church age will a prestigious Board of Bishops select a senior pastor for a well-established mega church, who CANNOT pastor full-time.  Yep, you heard it right here on MullOverThis. Paula White has an international ministry, tapes television for daily broadcasts, pastors another mega church and now adds  New Destiny Christian Center to her list of to-do’s.

Out of all of the people in the world-I mean think about this-who are qualified to shepherd a flock of believers, Paula White gets the appointment.  Would you be shocked to know that hhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmhhhhhhhhhh  MassaPassa Paula White was on the committee designated to find an appropriate leader?  No need to get wide-eyed over this, she was “objectively” looking for a pastor for the New Destiny Christian Center in conjunction with her croonies.

See, celebrity pastors shepherd effectively knowing they will never be available to mount the pulpit each Sunday, more or less know Jesus’ sheep.  That is what these “wise” leaders believe.  A woman who may show up twice each month because she has to split her time between another mega church-and if anybody thinks Massa Passa is going to regard NDCC more than the work she founded, go ahead and eat some of Ms. Abilene’s chocolate pie (The Help)-is not a “good” senior pastor for thousands of people who just may need to see their pastor more than twice a month between her helicopter rides, and correspondence with key NDCC staff. God forbid the Holy Spirit attempt to move during a service and bust up the television taping schedule and keep Passa’s helicopter pilot waiting.  We can’t afford these kinds of interruptions when we’re reaching the lost for Christ on a schedule that helps keep the cha ching ding sound in place.

In celebrity churches, the Bible is the blueprint that the people “work” to get big fat paychecks.  A church whose former pastor allegedly died from drugs and exemplified a “torn” heinous lifestyle which prompted him to stop his co-founding pastor wife from setting her foot on their church property, needs a pastor who will seek God for NDCC.  NDCC needs a pastor who is committed to that work, not fifteen other competing interests.  When the crux of pastoring is in scheduling programs, services and flying in two to three times a month, we all need to be crying out for the Lord’s return as soon as possible.  If this is what God’s will is, then we all need to just look to the skies and hope Jesus cracks them and ushers us home.

The members of NDCC should know what people who give each other Bentley’s for gifts thought of them.  They thought so much of them and their money, not their needs, that they assigned someone who probably would admit she was not capable of adding full-time care for two teenagers to her schedule, but could care for thousands of spiritual children as their most significant spiritual leader in between photo shoots and winks at the camera.

While Massa Passa’s endorsers have drunkenly proclaimed that she knows how to build a church, I’m sure people who have been re-routed to other ministries wonder if Massa Passa’s croonies have checked into the church she pastored and closed, allegedly due to financial struggles.

Welcome to the celebrity corporate church age.

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.

Weiner Resigns

by MullOverThis

Why?

Because of all the hoopla the party now faces, due to Weiner’s sexting misappropriations?  Or, his resignation may be a final breath to the nonsense-turned-fiasco because instead of addressing the mess with a modicum of integrity, the otherwise likeable New York congressman allegedly lied about the incident/s.

Like many of his predecessors-politicians with extramarital or freaky-deak shenanigans gone public-Weiner had to accept responsibility and step aside.  For what, I’m not certain because in the total scheme of things, this kind of stuff seems to be a marital more than a governmental problem.  Yet, the public and party insiders who care about the pressures from constituents seems to expect politicians to take the self-inflicted irreparable damage end and resign.  Expectedly, Weiner, in a brief statement, took the prescribed course and unloaded the continued ammunition the Republicans would have against the Democrats.

What is particularly admirable is that whether or not Weiner is genuine in his apology for the lack of discretion evidenced by the juvenile sexting and online parading or not, he had the wherewithal to know that some acknowledgment and an apology to those who relied upon his leadership was necessary.

The great grand pompous Bishop Eddie Long, who has some rocks that he hasn’t yet slung in his slingshot like David used in annihilating David’s seemingly giant enemy, ought to take some lessons from Weiner.  After lying and running his mouth to the press, Weiner made a public apology to his wife, his family and those who stood with him in his career as a public servant.   While the standard of integrity and accountability in the church should be so much greater, the Bishop Eddie Long who had a sexting component to his scandal and alleged sexual escapades with young boys/men has yet to make any public statement demonstrating any amount of humility or admission that at the very least, Bishops don’t take pictures of their buffed bodies and send them to their parishioners (especially when the men who are supposed to be chaste are married and have children).

The handsome sum in the millions (alleged) for settling the lawsuits-again, millions-is a huge rock in a Bishop Long’s slingshot.  However, Bishop Long’s slingshot seemed to have a boomerang effect.  I commend all of the people with common sense who are leaving New Birth and refuse to sit under a leader who would settle in the millions rather than let the truth be made known. Remember, for those who receive restoration for being overtaken in a fault, there must first be acknowledgment of wrong and repentance.  True repentance means the behavior must change because it is WRONG.  Arrogance and regrets for being busted won’t do.

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.

Merry Christmas!

by MullOverThis

Merry Christmas!  I hope this time of celebration for the birth and life of Jesus Christ helps you to cherish what is important, and focus on those things, always.

We often focus on what we need, what we’re trying to attain, and what  is missing.  For many, it is difficult to go through the holidays without a missing loved one.  For many who have lost their homes, gotten a divorce or suffered some sort of loss this year, the holidays are a bit harder.  Even in these situations, we still have to endure the holidays.  So, let’s focus on all of the good things that we do have.

For me, I have learned to live without my grandmother and some good friends who have passed away.  Although I think of them often, the holidays seem to trigger their absence so much more.  Yet, I think, “Thank God I’m here.”  I would have loved to be able to see another smile, hear another laugh, or even taste another dish from my grandmother.  Now, I can smile as I look at her pictures and know that she is at rest.

So enjoy your life, relationships and love as much as you can. Cherish what you do have and make decisions and life-choices that reflect your values and character.  You will find that not only is LIFE GOOD, but also that it is still great and worth living.

ON BENNY HINN AND PAULA WHITE

by MullOverThis

Reputedly, Benny and the Paula are “dating”.  This is only an allegation because there hasn’t been a public confirmation, at least YET. In the meantime, I choose to believe that the two recently “single” ministers are still alone working on themselves.

Two people, with an international following in Christiandom, recently divorced (is Benny’s divorce even final) and dating?  Let’s hope NOT.  Let’s hope that they have enough sense to WAIT because their desires and names are not above the reproach all of this grandiose spouse swapping will continue to bring on the Body of Christ. 

Note to Benny & the Paula:  Not only does Paula not preach better than the Apostle Paul or one-quarter of store front church preachers, but if these friends cannot honor a marriage covenant before God and work out commitment to the one person who they said they loved, they need not try to lead the world in anything.  True leaders have to LEAD, even in difficult things-like a marriage and keeping covenant-and the Bible that they tote happens to clearly relay this principle.

UGODDABEKIDDENME-RAPE BY DECEPTION

by MullOverThis

Check out this article first, please:

http://www.aolnews.com/surge-desk/article/palestinian-saber-kushour-accused-of-rape-of-deception-speak/19568421

Is this ludicrous or is this ludicrous?

A straight nutjob meets a man, sleeps with him two seconds after instantaneously, and gets to sue him for “rape by deception”?  Had this woman spent time over coffee before jumping in bed with a man that she does not know-I mean just enough time to sip a cup of coffee slowly-she might have asked him if he was an Arab or delved into his ancestry since this fact is so important to her. I can know absolutely nothing about this man, go to a rooftop and have sex with a complete stranger, so long as he is not Arab.  This insane thought pattern should never be legitimized under the law.    Forget the racism involved.  If Ms. Hotstuff is so free with her body, health and well-being, she should have a burden to do her own due diligence to find out whether a man with a Jewish nickname is actually a Jew.

Who in their right minds, actually allowed a person who has no regard for her own life to have standing to sue or be protected under the law under these circumstances?  Who?  Who?  She was deceived because she put blinders on.  She threw ALL judgment out of the window of her brain, which may never even have existed within in the first place, and went to a rooftop to have sex with a man who could have tossed her over the building. 

Some things make Mulloverthis have to take a few seconds to blog and this here ridiculousness is one of them.

Next thought:  What if this Rape By Deception existed in the United States?  Most men and women we know would be in jail right now.

FAITH OR MANDATORY TREATMENT?

by MullOverThis

 

A thirteen year old Minnesota boy is allegedly on the run with his mother to avoid chemotherapy treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma, a highly treatable form of cancer with traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  Mom and son allegedly prefer to treat the cancer naturally on religious grounds, because such treatment would involve violating their beliefs.

Judge Judy addressed the issue in a potluck style interview with Larry King and noted a number of  important factors.  A thirteen year old boy is of considerable age and as a family court judge, she would want to know the young boy’s desire.  Also, the young boy must have his own counsel to protect his own interests, irrespective of his parents and other interested parties. 

Mulloverthis thinks that this case is one in a line of many, that points to government imposition into socialist areas that break the bounds of individual rights.  The government, through the arms of the court, child welfare and social service agencies, should not mandate medical treatments based upon statistics. If I want to lay down and die from a tumor, that is my business.  A family who is otherwise well-balanced and informed should be able to choose what types of medical treatments, or lack thereof, they prefer.  Provided the parents are aware of optional treatments and have reasonable grounds for pursuing alternative treatments, they should be free to do so on any grounds. 

Consider this: the 13 year old boy could take the chemotherapy and die from the cancer. Meanwhile, he would have endured the torture of chemotherapy. If anyone is qualified to roll the dice on his life, it is his parents and those that love him.
