Man Of Who? 15 Of The Most Suspect Preachers Around

345 Comments
November 5, 2013 ‐ By Meg Butler

We don’t know who thought it would be a great idea to put “Preachers of LA” on TV, but now the country’s preachers are in the national spotlight. Unfortunately, they don’t all stand up to scrutiny. We’re always surprised at how many “men of God” turn out to be suspect, low-down or down-right devious. Here are our picks for 15 of the most suspect preachers around.

Derrick

Deitrick Haddon

For a preacher, Deitrick has a lot of trouble keeping it in his pants. He opened up about getting his fiancee Dominique pregnant before his divorce was finalized on “Preachers of LA”. But he’s kept quiet about Simone Lewis, the woman who came forward with e-mails and nude pictures to prove they were dating while he was still married. And has anyone noticed how defensive he gets anytime someone calls him out on his stuff?

    Pastor Juanita Bynum didn’t say she’d had affairs with women when she was a pastor and while married to her ex. She said she’d been with women and said it after the fact, when she was a pastor is what you mean.

    The church is commanded to judge itself. Non Christians actions should never be judged because they are not part of the family. But the church has every right to judge the church’s actions, and in fact are commanded to do so. Leaders are even more harshly judged and watched because of their positions. Most of these people are scam artists and thieves. They are not working for Jesus, they are just using the name as a dodge or way to get rich from people who do not know better.

  • bob h

    Any list like this that fails to include Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan is fiction.

  • Barry Bynum

    I have been a supporter of and familiar with people who have worked closely with 700 Club. Many of you have no idea how much charity and help this org gives to 100s of 1000s of needy people each year, and how many years the people operated on a shoestring for the sake of helping others. When you have done that yourself, and endured ridicule and mocking for doing it, get back to me. Robertson made his own personal money from wise investments and business apart from the 700 Club ministry. A lot of you are arrogant armchair judges, knowing very little what you actually talking about. May God convict your heart for spreading ill-will, false info, and hate.

  • quietguyinthecorner

    This thing with Televangelists is funny. I remember on the Golden Girls, Sophia goes to Heaven, and the greeter said she had to go back, but was excited about a new arrival, a Televangalist. When questioned, he said we’ve never had one before.

    This is not the Body of mChrist…………it is in name only. Christians don’t do this stuff if they are actually loving, worshipping children of God. These are people on a power trip.

  • ChocolateCity Love

    I have no problems with Mase being a preacher. The thought is that all rap is bad, thus rappers are bad. Not true! I think he can do clean rap and have fun with it. He’s a young man who may have interesting ways of reaching those that a regular minister may not. It’s about the word touching people, right? As long as what he’s doing isn’t dirty, have at it

  • DixieDarlin

    That is absolutely true, Preach. They were probably never IN The Body of Christ. But it will be God, and ONLY God who will separate the wheat from the tares. No human is powerful enough to make this a sad day for The Body of Christ. There will always be false prophets. We just have to pray for discernment.

    A blind man can SEE all their DECEPTION, down-low behavior, I think a couple of them smoke weed, Noel is fornicating or HIDING his desires for men, and for the women their JEZEBEL ways says “I’m here for the cameras” ONLY!!! One of those preachers act like him and NOEL are sleeping together cuz he can’t STAND the female in Noel’s life!!!…#god #never #sleeps

    • Mycos

      Amazing isn’t it ? I mean….a man like Peter Popoff, who was actually caught pretending to hear god tell him the names and various ailments that had afflicted various people out in the audience during one of his faith-healing performances. His wife, who had earlier been out mingling (trolling) with the audience, was now feeding the info she’d learned through a wireless earphone while he hammed it up onstage.

      He was actually caught, with the voice of his wife clearly heard on the recording telling him “Hugh Retard, from Hellhole, Mississippi, suffers from crippling conservatism” and other terrible diseases like that. But even after being publicly exposed, soon he was right back on the air where he can be found today doing his magic act for thousands of very old men and women frightened about dying, as well as thousands more whose only excuse can be a case of ‘breathtaking stupidity.’.(verily, verily stupid people?).

  • motorfingaz

    All of the ignorant posts on this thread is amazing.

    Most of you so called “God experts” all are going to bust hell wide open come judgment.

  • Two Cents Worth

    With out mentioning some of the biggest tv preachers you really don’t have a good story. Paul Crouch, Oral Roberts, Franklin Graham, Mike Murdock, Peter Popoff, John Hagee, Joyce Meyer, Ken Copeland, Joel Osteen, and Benny Hinn all come to mind when you say suspect people are out for money. Yeah some that you mention have scandals, but many are has beens. Others are still ripping people off.

    It’s not hard to list a few others.

  • guest

    The fact remains that Pauline’s doctrine will not save us. Apostle Peter warned (ii Peter 2) and foresaw it coming that the name of the Lord would be blasphemed due to false teachers and false doctrines. People were falling then when they read the letters of Paul (ii Peter 3) so are they falling now. This is the time YAWE is getting ready to return His followers back to the Hebrew faith. The Lord Yacua was a Jew (not Jewish), and was crucified as King of the Jews.

  • Brad

    Very sad. God will sort them out…

  • Nancy Smith-Williams

    Creflo doesn’t belong in this group. His theology is right on and people simply love to discredit him. Neither does Pat Robertson. Bandwagon time, folks.

    And people still buy into this..get real people.

    Jesse Jackson got a woman pregnant several years ago. Where is he?

  • Kimberly Gibson

    Yes, he is VERY defensive when his behavior is brought to light. Why is that? As a “MAN of God” he should be the first to admit to his sin and testify as to how God brought him through so that he can help others. Instead, he puts forth his beliefs that there is nothing wrong with a couple living together pre marriage as long as they don’t fornicate. The Bible is clear and his beliefs go against the Word of God which, he attempts to preach/teach to a congregation. HMMM. I’m just saying…

  • John ‘Genryu’

    The Osteens and Franklin Graham should also be on this list.

  • Tony Donaldson

    No kingdom of glory or eternal life for these shysters. The devil knows how pleasures, money, power and fame work. He knows just who he can tempt and turn with it. These were just talkers about religion. Not true believers of Christ. They were “showmen”. Shadow demons. They deserve every bit of hell here on earth while living and their wretched souls deserve to roast in the fires of hell when they pass.. They don’t know Christ. They don’t know God. Sins of the flesh and spreading the disease of doubt among the faithful? They are all criminals to the held in contempt by God. To know what is right and to stray from it and be willing to stay from it, all for useless spare change and carnal pleasure? What a wicked devious path they took to be noticed. They all KNEW the path they took. The Creature called “desire” led them to it. Torment awaits them all for slanderously using God and Christ and his followers to fill their pockets. To me, these are the worst sins ever committed. If they think they promote the word of God and receive profit by it, they are surely not people of God or Christ. They very sadly mistaken. God will not accept them in his kingdom. I’d not like to be in their shoes come judgment day. Each should have a hot coal shoved down his throat.

  • bayman61

    Anyone who would listen to this chump or follow him is as much a fool as he is. He lives off keeping racism alive. He laughs at you people all the way to the bank. He saw an opportunity to make money off of fools and went after it. He even denies being a dish washer at Landover Church. They have proof he was there, yet he still denies it. People must love to listen to him spew hatred and take it in to their hearts and keep it there and use it as an excuse to explain why they are so downtrodden. ‘Oh it be the white mans fault.” You keep your own self down. I mean even way back when, it was your own people who sold you to the white man in Africa. But you blame the whites. You will never make it and neither will your children until you accept the truth.

  • bobthemoron

    Noted that 10 of the 15 were Black. Since Blacks only make up about 14% of the population, one might surmise that a high percentage of Black preachers are crooks.

  • Swingen

    Most black preachers are no more than hustlers, the two biggest being Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

  • Orville Wright

    ALL religions are fundraising scams, regardless of who the preacher is. It’s just that some religions are better at the con game and covering up than others.

  • keninil

    Where’s Jesse Jackson ??

  • Ellen

    It is a shame that members of congregations continue to support these slimy preachers. Sure, we are not to judge anyone, but it should be no different for any minister. They have no right to judge anyone. It is bad when a preacher judges a person or group only to find out that he is guilty of a similar and same type of incident. Plus, I believe that preachers should be required to live a lower lifestyle than people who can’t afford to give to a church but give anyway. To me, that is just wrong!

  • Crack A Lackin

    I dont see Jessie Jackson’s name on the list. Where did he go to seminary. Has he ever preached a sermon on sin, the blood, repentance or redemption in Christ?

  • txsrangers

    Sorry, but when someone settles out of court with someone who molested them, it just tells me they were lying to get a payday in the first place. Who allows someone to do that to their children, and then let them go free, potentially molesting someone else, by just settling with them?

    • Mycos

      Who? People who need money more than they need to get revenge on him. And these days, that includes an awful lot of people.

  • Greg

    Okay, that was fifteen of the worst preachers. Now do an article of fifteen who are doing a great job while practicing what they preach! There are many more good than bad it’s just not exciting journalism to write about the good guys.

  • Chuck

    OK I hate to defend any of these shieisters, BUT Harold cCamping did not line his own pockets with the donations he received — he did use them to publicize his own misguided prophecy.

  • Zack

    Never put your faith in a human being. Humans are fallen creatures and will act as such to some degree at some point, especially when given a position of power. Put your faith in Christ alone. He died for all our sins. Even these preachers.

    • Mycos

      And you know this is true how? Did Christ reappear in your house after chatting up Mary outside the tomb? Or did God explain all this to you in person? Because otherwise everything you think you know about Christ comes from the mouths and pens of other human beings like you.

  • Daniel De Kok

    Louis Farrakhan is conspicuous by his absence.

    Add the Rev SMMoon and his daughter InJin–the rev got his position by having sex with many many girls (“restoring” them, TNR January 2014) then his daughter continued the tradition as a serial homewrecker….Stallings attended her wedding last autumn….

    • Mycos

      So he’s the inspiration for calling it the “missionary position”?

    These people are no more ministers that the “Reverend” Al Sharpton or “Reverend” Jesse Jackson. Just because they declare themselves ministers doesn’t make it so. You wouldn’t trust your health to someone who just decided to start calling himself “Doctor,” would you? Show some discernment.

    • debris54

      uh … wrong … they are ministers, as much as any other minister. All mentioned were given that status by some ‘church authority’ or another

  • Victor

    Hello MadameNoire, you said Pat Robertson has made controversial statements against homosexuality and women’s rights. What sort of controversial statements did he make? Did he say anything about homosexuality that the Bible has not already said? You extreme leftists have a serious problem – anyone who disagrees with you is labeled with all sorts of names. In case you don’t know, homosexuality is insane, unnatural and abominable. If it were a natural act, we would expect animals to practice it. But no animal has ever practiced homosexuality. Have you even seen two male dogs mating? or two male cats having sex? It has never happened. The question then is: why would a human being do what an animal cannot even do? It is the height of human depravity! Even the American Psychiatric Association classifies homosexuality as a mental illness in their Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM) of mental disorder. And what do you mean by “women’s rights”? Do you mean a women’s right to murder an unborn baby? What gives a woman that right to take the life of an unborn child? It is a well established fact by embryologists that the fetal heart develops very early and by the third week of pregnancy, the baby’s heart is already beating fine and can be picked up by ultrasound scan. The mother’s womb is supposed to be the safest place for a baby but it has become the most dangerous place for a baby to stay. Shame on all who endorse abortion! What is the difference between a 2-year-old child and a 50-year old man? Both of them are human beings; the only difference is time. If you allow the 2-year-old enough time, he too will grow to become a 50-year old man. By the same analogy, the only difference between a one-day old embryo in the womb and a one year-old child is a matter of time. Both the embryo in the womb and the one-year old child are human beings; if you allow enough time, the embryo will grow into a one-year old child and subsequently into a 50-year old man!

    • cjkcjk

      They got nothing on Pat because there’s nothing to get. These evil Lefties just love to slime a good man.

    • Mycos

      The bible also says kids should be killed if their disobedient or bring shame on the household, as well as one’s wife if she’s an adulterer. So by your own logic, there’s nothing controversial about a preacher who counsels his flock to kill the kids.

      Yet you call people who find a problem with that “extreme”?

      As for your assertion homosexuaity “has never happened between two animals”, you clearly were not raised on a farm, worked in a zoo, or sought a degree in animal husbandry or zoology because it happens *all the time*.

      That, when combined with notions like the mere act of fertilizing a human gamete magically transforms them into, well…. people!…leads me to conclude that biology isn’t exactly one of your strong suits.

  • Senator777

    Dr. Dollar has not taken a salary in over 15 years. He earns his money from books, tapes, and other business interests. The Roll Royce was a gift that was not given to him by the church. He later sold it and gave the money to the church. The church owns the plans and not Dr. Dollar.

    • txsrangers

      Creflo is one of the most inspiring teachers of the bible I’ve come across. If there’s anybody that deserves riches in this country, it’s not spoiled athletes, it’s people who preach what God says. Just my 2 cents.

      • Mycos

        Sure. That is as long as your willing to ignore what is surely one of the clearest, most unambiguous social statements Jesus ever made “on the record” (in the Bible).. And that’s his several pronouncements and denunciations of men who hoard wealth eg. “It is easier that a camel pass through the eye of a needle than for him to enter into the kingdom of Heaven.”
        What could He have said about the rich that could possibly be more clear than that? Yet it is universally ignored by the self-righteous narcissists claiming to have special insights into what Jesus said and expects of those who follow Him. And the fact that Americans flock to the defense of these con-men means they are not followers of Christ but rather followers of the preachers themselves.

  • Big Leo

    There are more than a half million preachers. I note that only two of these has any relationship to a recognized, historical denomination. The reason that any problem with ministers is national news is because of its rarity. Similar problems with teachers, salesmen, or any other occupational group are not.

  • Melvin S

    Kirk Franklyn, T.D Jakes and Tony Gadskins should be on this list….but I like them to too big to fail…

    • NofDen

      t.d. jakes?? I thought he is a good man and Preacher.

  • Rob Thomas

    “Preachers”. What a joke. These guys will receive their reward.

    Not a big Pat Robertson fan. But unlike everyone else on the list, you attack what one of his relatives did. Not Robertson himself. Funny stuff. I guess just trying to balance the blacks and whites. Robertson is guilty of quoting the Bible and its teachings on homosexuality. Funny stuff.

    All black ministers are thieves, liars, crooks and sex fiends. Show me a black man of the cloth and Ill show you a lying crook with three mistresses, a chest full of money and the finest junk his congregation can afford him. They and black politicians are just alike, they cannot help abusing everyones faith, cheating and stealing. The power makes them drunk.

  • Dan

    Where is Jesse Jackson? He is a pure and simple a POS!

  • Jim R

    Why are you wasting time on semantics? Jesus Christ is the generally accepted transalated name in the English language of the One who was born in Bethlehem, preached and showed by example how to live and love, died on the cross for our sins, rose from the dead to conquer death, and ascended into heaven. When you mention the name Jesus Christ in the English speaking world, everyone knows who you are talking about. Whether you call him Jesus, Yashua, Messiah, Christ, the Son, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Wonderful, Counselor, Alpha and Omega, it does not matter. God the Father, Son, and Spirit know who you mean – and that is all that matters. Minor quibbling over immaterial issues like this are materially affecting our ability to carry on the Great Commission. Stop it now! You are doing as much damage to Christianity as the fifteen idiots listed in the article. Every time you argue these petty issues, the atheists are pointing and laughing.

    The basis of my theology could be summed up in one statement: In this world, there are only two types of people – sinners and forgiven sinners. Jesus Christ, being fully human and sinless, is the only person – past, present, or future – who has the ability to pay this sin penalty for another. Being fully divine, only He can pay the death penalty for all of our sins. This payment is a gift that Jesus literally died to give us.

    Receipt of this gift is solely contingent upon faith in Jesus Christ and acceptance of the gift. This is what is called “saving faith” and transforms a mere sinner into a forgiven sinner. This gift can only be redeemed at death, but it may be returned unopened prior to death. Apostasy (loss of faith) is the method in which the gift is returned unopened. Therefore, after making the initial decision to become a Christian, perseverance of faith in Jesus Christ is the most vital task of a Christian. The Great Commission, which will bring more people to the ranks of the forgiven, is a close second. Nothing else comes close to these two responsibilities.

    The Great Commission is secondary to perseverance because logically, how can you “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19 NIV) if you no longer believe in Jesus Christ yourself? Perseverance is more vital than the Great Commandment (love of God and love of neighbor) for the same reason – how can you “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:29-31 NIV) if you no longer believe in God?

  • Willie Snow

    pastors and all that are to lead the Lords sheep need to fear God because they will have to stand before the just judge and be accountable. Sorry but it is what it is and the word of God is true and the warnings are written.

    If you form a relationship with Christ and study and meditate on his word, then you will not be taken in by these false prophets. You cannot depend on man to teach you salvation and the word of God.

    who are we to judge, it does not make us any better about the situation, all we can do is pray and forgive. we are humans, we make mistakes, we are not perfect at all. stop living by flesh and start living by the spirit.

    • NofDen

      Would give you money to someone who doesn’t deserve it? That’s judgement.
      You should judge wisely, don’t marry the wrong person either.

  • KitKat

    The fact of the matter is you should put ur trust in the Lord and not man. Pastors are ppl who do wrong too! This article is malicious and what was ur point? Is this some slick attempt to bring down the church or are u really that concerned so u feel the need to bring this to light? Hmph im going with my first thoughts. While ur spilling the tea on these men I hope no one gets hands on ur dirt whoever u are hiding behind a laptop. I could care less about their personal mess they are men first, it doesn’t mean their faith is any less real than mine. As a woman who was raised in church I’ve seen and heard alot but I never let that deter me from my faith and love of the Lord.

  • Esse

    Actually in my country togo in west africa people are still donating money to this dollar creflo of a pastor trough his churches over there and they can barely afford three square meals!!!!! Bunch of fools.

  • Justice1981

    At first I was kind of against this show coming out. But after I watched it I was glad it came on. I think mamy Christians and church folk have their parents or grand parents Christianity and religion. Too many Christians and bible believers do not take the time to really study and develop their beliefs. For example one of the first things people say when they hear about Haddon is – no one is perfect and don’t judge…. Yet the scriptures tell Christians to be perfect as their heavenly father is perfect. the scriptures also tell Christians to judge and they are supposed to judge those in church with righteous judgement… and if they can’t do this how can they be expected to judge and rule the world in the hereafter?????? When will Christians begin to realize using secular and societal understanding, knowledge, and wisdom does not work well when trying to explain spiritual principals…..The perfect that the bible speaks of may not be the same idea of perfect expressed in the “world”.

    Maybe the reason so many don’t want to judge or strive to be perfect is because they would have to check their own self with the things they do. I’m glad this show is on tv and just as it exposes those things that these preachers do in their private lives….it gives an indication of what church people do as well. People are so concerned that about this mess being exposed on TV in view for all to see. They think maybe it should be keep quiet! However shouldn’t they be more concerned that God sees what is done in the darkest corner even when it is hidden from the eyes of people?

    Maybe if the lives of more preachers, Christians and bible thumpers were openly exposed… the mental, physical, sexual, emotional, and financial abuse would stop being perpetrated against others. Maybe these individuals would be more serious about their faith before pulling the trigger and killing their wives because their cheating with some else. Maybe they wouldn’t be at work stealing time or at the store stealing clothes, maybe they wouldn’t be driving drunk or at the club all hugged up on someone other than their own husband…. and then going to church on Sunday as if it was all good!

    When preachers and those in the pews alike stop cherry picking what they believe, when they stop choosing what they are willing to obey and what they won;t obey. When they begin to realize that God’s essence could never ever be FULLY explained by that which is contained in the bible. When people begin to really understand… The same love that can cover a multitude of sin…. is the very same love that can also stop people from sinning against God and hurting other people with the decisions they make… maybe, just maybe we will begin to see more humanity in our communities and less hate, pain, crime, mistreatment and abuse…. Until that time comes let your life speak instead of your mouth churchgoers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Read in the bible about King David and bathsheeba. MLK didn’t kill anybody.
      He also was a voice of moderation in a tough time. If he had said go riot,

      many would have. He could have torn the U.S.A. apart with riots.
      Mlk had his weakness, but I believe he was God’s man for the hour, during the 1950’s until he was murdered.
      I am a white conservative.

  • mycommoncents

    surprised the preacher from Texas wasn’t on here after that helicopter scandal, prayer cloth scandal etc. It’s so sad that some preachers are the way they are, all about the money. It’s more of a shame that so many people are willing to trust their salvation in the hands of “man”.

    These pastors are human like us. If these people truly have the calling of God on their life, they should repent ask for forgiveness and move forward. Only The Lord can truly judge. I pray these folks get themselves together.

    Considering the high levels of poverty among black people, it is shocking to see that people can raise such large amounts of money to give to these conmen. Imagine what that money could do if provided towards real things like education, job creation, rehabilitation of prisoners etc or simply saving and investing it for yourself. Black people have held on to religion so strongly for centuries and yet we are still at the bottom of the table in terms of innovation, science, technology etc. Real things that actually afford us the lifestyle we lead.Time to let go of this crutch.

    Religion does more harm than good. I look forward to the day when humanity transcends to a higher state of moral consciousness, and ceases to blindly follow archaic texts. You do not need religion to know what is right and wrong.

    Peace and love.

    I think it’s sad that people still get duped by religion. I mean, look at the people selling this snake oil. How does anyone take someone like “Dollar” or any of these other donkeys seriously? Then to read these people debating these fairy tales…I’m glad I was taught to think for myself. They might steal and lie, but they won’t do it to me.

    You know, it would be nice if the entire story of Dr. Dollar would be reported instead of speculations made in the media. If you’d do your homework, you’d find that the allegations were false, and his family is doing well. Also, you obviously don’t know that Dr. Dollar doesn’t even take a salary from the church. His money comes from book writings, and other avenues of revenue. However, the Bible does tell us that we are to pay the preachers for their work in the church, because they are not working a job for anyone… their job is the church.

  • Linda Shells

    The Bible says, “Touch not my anointed & do my prophets no harm.” This reporter better keep her/his mouth off of these ministers. They do not know if what they have reported is true or not. Stay in ur line & stick with reporting on reality celebs!

    Disqualification of the whole is not assumed by the acts of the one; nor is the anointing of Christ bartered with excellency of speech. How unseemly a diamond ring on the snout of a pig and the applauds noised among the mental assent for faith misplaced

  • B S

    the wolves in wool have been preying on their flocks for centuries. so it should surprise NO ONE when people who seem to like to dress either like pimps, floozies or greasy lawyers are sleazing their hands (or other, less public appendages) into everyone’s pockets/pants/dresses and then hiding behind the pious cant of being a person of the church. it seems depressingly easy for priests, ministers and others in places of power within a church to abuse their status and perceived holiness/sanctity at the cost of those who go to them for guidance and spiritual fulfillment. and these faux righteous con-men can hide behind their titles because they KNOW their fellows and the more naive and those less apt to raise a voice against them in their denominations will protect them, or at least try to muddy the waters enough to prevent any punishment or expiation from coming upon them. it’s quite dismaying.

  • gotmygrooveback

    Jimmy Swaggart and 1988. I mean come on get real. That was almost 30 years ago. Is this the best they got? That man done repented 500 hundred times. I guess that don’t mean nothing to no one cept Jesus right?

    Did not include Benny Hinn?? nor those fools at Trinity Broadcasting Network??

Elijah Mohammed (anybody want a bean pie)??
    What is so, so sad is that the congregants CONTINUE to GIVE these “preachers” money!
    “Bishop” Eddie D. L. Long OWNS his “church”, btw
    Now THAT’s they way to make a buck! Get a bunch 2 people to GIVE you money weekly, own your own “church” and claim that 503b status, maybe get a little time on TV and you can make a killing, practice infidelity and gluttony with impunity. . .can only hope they will get heir reward
    kinda makes purgatory a worthwhile place, don’t ya think?
    just remember: when the focus is on the preacher and not on Him, there is a problem.

  • ambuzzzephier@yahoo,com

    remember, concerning the ‘false prophets’ mohammad was not the first nor was he the only false prophet, and today, look how many false prophets there are! And look at what they all ask for and gain! who shares in their profits raised by Lies? They do, of course. But, who else gains, could it be their ‘program sponsors’? After all, it is big business? and the Blind will go one leading the Blind and the ‘demon-creature satan’ wins and ‘its’ followers are bound for ‘its’ domain, ‘hell-fire’. Forever! Do not fret, but, instead reach out with the Truth which you now possess using media like this…radio, tv newspapers, books, magazines, letters, etc.

  • ambuzzzephier@yahoo,com

    First In the MOST HOLY BLESSED DIVINE NAME JESUS; PEACE BE UNTO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU WHO ARE HOLDING ON TO WHAT YOUI BELIEVE, THAT BEING YOUR FAITH IN ETERNAL GOD MOST HOLY BLESSED DIVINE WORD, JESUS. JESUS our SAVIOUR said: ” The Concupiscence of the Thought of man is Sensual” This is my sisters and brothers, the reason why the ‘demon-creature’ satan possesses so much influence and power with which to gain complete control over the personal Spirits of all ‘sinners’ and one result is the creation of Liars and their Lies for the purpose of leading those people of ‘ill Will’ astray! You see, my sisters and brothers our LORD JESUS accomplished ‘Four Rules’ which are to guide us to HIS KINGDOM. One; JESUS, for the first time, arrived on earth as a New Born Baby in order to provide us ETERNAL SALVATION. Two; JESUS lived HIS LIFE to show us the Way in which we should live to ensure our Faith in HIM. Three; JESUS was tortured and ‘killed’ on a Crucifix! HE died to ‘RID’ every single one of us Created, of the ‘Original Sin’ that no other ‘ruler, king, chief, pope, prophet, president, poet or any other leader or human being, spiritual or secular could have done, to provide us with a greater chance in successfully reaching our Sole Purpose of our Existence: To ‘Enter Heaven and To Enjoy ETERNAL GOD, FOREVER; Four; Because JESUS knew the Concupiscence of the Thought of man is Sensual, HE Organized and Established HIS ONE TRUE CHURCH and therein placed Seven Sacred Sacraments, One of which is for our human weakness to Sin; the HOLY SACRAMENT of FORGIVENESS OF SINS which no other faith, religion, or church possesses. AND NEVER FORGET THIS: JESUS ROSE FROM THE FRIGHTENING EXPERIENCE OF DEATH AND WALKED OUT OF THE SEPULCHRE THAT COULD NOT KEEP HIM TO PROVIDE US ALL WITH THE STRENGTH THAT SUSTAINS US FOREVER…! Now you know the Truth…no need to converse nor argue over insignificant issues!! AMEN; it is so

  • Brian Kirkland

    Are you kidding? Preachers are the biggest satyrs, abusers, child molesters, you name it, in African-American communities. They always have been. They’re human beings with resources and access to lots of people who trust them. Why should they be any different than priests?

    God Bless You All. Did you know that Pastor Creflo Dollar was exonerated from all charges? The mark on his daughter neck was a birthmark. Did you know that Pastor Creflo Dollar does not receive a salary from tithes and offerings at his church? His wealth comes from God through books and products sold. Beloved men and women of God read your bibles so that you can learn how to treat one another. **Finally Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things a TRUE, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies (Phillippians 4:8 msg)**……And with all thy getting, get understanding.

  • CCBanks

    I realize that there will be pushback for this truth. I’ve come to discover that ones ability to accept certain truths is directly related to ones exposure to the “under pinnings” of that truth.

    Omarosa is not a “minister” nor is she a “pastor”, at least not in the church of JESUS CHRIST SHE ISN’T. There is NO SUCH THING as a WOMAN PREACHER, or Pastor because in CHrist’s church women are NOT ALLOWED to usurp authority over a man, nor to even SPEAK in church! Please save all your “times change” arguments for someone who hasn’t read and studied the word since he was filled with the Holy Ghost 12:27-92 with this evidence (Acts 2:4) after he was baptized in this way ( acts 2:38). PEOPLE may change, LAWS may change but the LORD does NOT change.

    Malachi 3:6

    For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

    Paul received a COMMANDMENT FROM JESUS CHRIST that told him that women were NOT SUPPOSED TO SPEAK IN CHURCH. Paul knew that this was going to ruffle a few feathers and he couched his exposure of this command in a challenge. He actually CHALLENGED the BIBLICAL AUTHORITY and SPIRITUALITY of anyone who would disagree with this by telling them that he received it as a commandment from GOD. I realize this is a jokey joke gossip site but MY JOB is the exposure of FALSE DOCTRINE, it’s what I do.

    1 Corinthians 14:34-37

    King James Version (KJV)

    34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.

    35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

    36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

    37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

  • twinkie1cat

    They were not boys, but young men. The problem was that Eddie came out against gain marriage and even had a demonstration while he was gay himself. It was the hypocrisy that destroyed Eddie Long. This might be expected because Eddie was physically abused by his father, also a preacher. This comes from someone who grew up around Eddie Long. His father was also upbraided when he tried to “discipline” another child at the King Center and was gotten on to by Coretta Scott King herself when the other boy told her.

  • twinkie1cat

    With Creflo, you have to understand his background. Creflo grew up in the McDaniel-Glenn housing project in Atlanta. I met him once before he had his big church. He was wearing cut offs and had been working on a car. In any case he lived with the grandmother and often had holes in his shoes. This came from someone who grew up with Creflo. So you really can’t rule out an overreaction to the loss of poverty in his case.

  • Kobron Ali

    Take Al Sharpton’s name from this list. He has upheld the highest values of Christianity (supposed values) in both his personal and professional life. So what if he’s a tad flamboyant? He’s suspect only to the privileged and the ignorant.

  • James Smith

    In my thirty years of teaching and testifying about what I know about The Almighty. I know that while I listen to many preach the gospel. They never really refresh the hearts of their congregations. When this happens, church becomes a ritual. People come into the church, music begins, hands are raised, singers sing every one feels what they consider The Holy Spirit, and once all this is done, they sit down to listen to the same old John 3:16 message. The one they hear Sunday after Sunday with no real impact. A sermon must have a positive impact much like the disciples had whenever they met people. They weren’t church men, they were traveler’s on the highways and by ways seeking and searching out every soul possible. Being guided by Christ and endowed with words which God had taught them to say immediately. Leaving a Spiritual impact upon the hearer, insomuch that the lost were ready to be found and saved. Men and women of today, get a little touch of God in Christ and immediately run out and build a church…and call their ministry by their own names. And immediately after that they open up the ” offering box “, ” the collection plate ” and merchandise sell’s area. Buy my book, get my revised version of The Bible, hear my explicit CD’s of Jesus turning water to wine. Learn how the Hebrew has a fuller meaning of scripture and how speaking Hebrew draws you closer to God. Nothing is ever just flat our free…it all cost something, except a two page tract or brochure. Money parallel’s the word of God in Christ. But it also curses it to those who are attracted to that form of Gospel. The Jimmy Swaggart’s, Jim Baker’s, Robert Tilton’s, Paul Crouch, TBN, Benny Hinn, and the multitude of Christian’s who are servers of money. Here’s my humble explanation…Why, would I ever have to write a book about anything contained in the Bible? When God is a teacher of mankind? Who instructed me to revise a Bible? Who said, you must write a book and sell it in my name? When you selectively choose some form of scripture and write a book about it. You are in essence robbing God as our Father of being our Father. And placing mankind ahead of God, in knowledge of what scripture interpretation is. More explicitly let me inform you, that no one can teach you a better interpretation of what scripture truly means than God. Of whom was there the very minute He inspired it to be written. His Inspirational Deity created all scripture, without flaw or error. No assumption is laid to what The Lord teaches us about scripture. Bible College’s are really a farce, they usurp authority to become scholar’s and teacher’s that is not authenticated by God in Christ. We as followers of Christ are endowed with a gift of resurrection and life. That life is more abundant to the sovereignty of God…but in Christ. By way of His Holy Spirit, of whom Christ declares to be ” your teacher “. Church is nothing more than set up as a place of worship and fellowship among believer’s. Christ declared that He didn’t come for the ” righteous ” but to save sinners. Who gather’s in all these churches week in and week out? The righteous….oh yeah a few among them is a sinner or an unbeliever. So are we instructed to leave the ninety (righteous) and go out and find that one lost sheep (sinner, unbeliever, etc) and come back rejoicing?
    The United States of America has all but failed as a nation of Christian believers. Moral concepts have severely decayed and immoral values have swept us away. Every medium of communication has imploded this nations ability to survive. While freedom was once deemed an impeccable choice for living standards. It has long since become a liability and a force of evil. Freedom has allowed for the Satanic movements that have given to much leeway, in political over throw of out standard morality. Giving into physical traits dispelled by Biblical laws. Allowing women the ” freedom ” to abort their babies ” for any reason “; freedom has allowed homosexuals to come out of their hiding places without fear and demand same sex rights, unfounded by Biblical teachings. Freedom has taken down the safe guards of what can and cannot be seen through movie and t.v. shows and commercials. Sexual permissiveness is flaunted ” freely ” and ” solicited ” by every means of media concept. Marriage has been denounced as a bad situation, in light of of a free cohabitation experience do to sexual exploitation. Freedom alone, has set the bar for every opportunity for filthy unGodly sexual and homosexual practices and greed is the high calling of freedom’s minister’s pastor’s and politician’s all alike. God is not mocked, we will fall prey to our own doings…this nation will eventually reap what it has allowed to be sown…amen!

    Men of God, is a farce because the word God alone without His established name. Is a claim of nothing. You turn the word God around and spell it backwards, ” dog ” and it fits a gentile devil worshiper. People who were not Jews, were called “dogs” and they trusted in shrines of mythical beings. Hallelujah shouted today, is not what it was in former times. Lip service is what you see in all the churches of ” God “. Wealth, money is their God, gold, silver, television stations, Lear jets, mega mansions, Porsche’s, B.M.W.’s, Escalade’s and all sorts of filthy lucre. All in the name of God…and for all these reasons The United States is called by other countries, ” The Great Satan “. Very befitting.

    It’s easy to spot the false prophets right off. If they have any bling at all… expensive house, clothes, jewelry, etc., you know what they are. Plain and simple.

    Mat 6:19-21 (TEB) “Do not save riches for yourselves here on earth, where moths and rust destroy, and robbers break in and steal. Instead, save riches for yourselves in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and robbers cannot break in and steal. For your heart will always be where your riches are.”

    What I do not understand is why this pastors need to live so high off the hog, I mean if you are truly a man of God why can you not lead a normal life? How does being the pastor mean you need a private jet a 10 million dollar house and all kinds of crazy trappings while your congregation is leading a normal exsistence or just barely scrapping by yet they are giving 30% or more of their monies. I just see something very wrong when my pastor is rolling up to church in a half a million dollar car. That to me is not being a man of God. I also think we the people need to realize these people are human and they sin and make mistakes just like the rest of us, and we need to hold them accountable.

    The reason a lot of these people became pastors was for the tax exempt status and the money. They are why organized religion is a farce. It is only about the money. None of them are true Christians, and they have silver tongues. Greed and deception is all they care about. If you understand the Bible, it is written so you can make your own choices, and worship in any way you choose. If they ever were Christians with real values, they would be humble, which none of them are. Al Sharpton only shows up when its a racial issue and he can be in the spotlight.

    When we are more excited about our mega church or pastor, than in Jesus Christ, then beware. All the glitz and glamour of these mega churches makes me cautious. The focus on money makes me shudder. Glorying in mega church leaders makes me cringe. The prosperity gospel is false, as well as those who sell it. We need to get back to the Cross. Back to humility. Back to the whole counsel of God. Back to the closet of prayer. My House shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves, selling books, tapes, and CDs, looking for that next great teaching…..Get back to just reading the Bible,…… Back to the Fear of the Lord, not taking Him for granted. Get your mind so saturated in the Word of God, you can smell a rat, and false teaching, a mile away……

    ……..1 Corinthians 1:26-31………

    ………Glory Only in the Lord………..

    26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; 28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, 29 that no flesh should glory in His presence. 30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— 31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”……….

    ………2 Corinthians 11:23-29…….

    23 Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. 24 From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; 26 in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 27 in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness— 28 besides the other things, what comes upon me daily: my deep concern for all the churches. 29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I do not burn with indignation?

Not Christ Like (NCL) ..He has shared his pulpit with Many unbelievers as well as others who have their OWN (Oprah) religion ie..Deepak Chopra! I wont even get started on the “celebrities ” fake show of Christianity ! NCL open your eyes people! you have been deceived ! Moving on Motivational speaker Joel Olsteen by his own mouth said he was NO Pastor ! Does NOT preach the true word of God but some watered down ear tickling fence straddling message ! NCL ! The Adulteress Paula White & Her Adulterer partner Benny Hinn…& Any False “Preacher ” That stands before you without TEACHING THE WHOLE WORD OF GOD ! or one that will tell you ” You can pay your way to a Blessing!

    It is AMAZING Black people still believe this church/Jesus thing so strongly, when clearly it was devised to detach us from the true source. Why do you think we pray, pray, pray…and still stay in the conditions we stay in..getting no answer? Because we have been misled. Why do you think these preachers do whatever they want, and take the money from the people they are supposed to help? Why do you think they all sleep around? Because they know it is all false…or they would not..COULD not do it. If you KNEW the Bible was true..there would be no possible way ANY human could defy it. They lied to us to confuse us, and it works. There is God..but the story of Jesus..etc…come on. Stop falling for it.

    • El Hajj

      No# 1 there worshiping pagan gods the fathers true name is Yahweh . so if you calling on the Satan then what do you thinks going to happen . No#2 Everyone needs to know who the true father is and what his true name is so you can worship the Yahweh by his true name not by one of Satan name which are lord god jesus all pagan name .

      • Wanderer

        Has it ever occurred to you that these people might think they are actually preaching the word of God? Even if they aren’t? Perhaps they are just misguided and need new direction? Also, how arrogant to make generalizations about all black people based off this article.

        Furthermore, your answer is to burn people? Literally, burn people? Who are you to be judge? I thought that was God’s job? And wouldn’t you want them to be redeemed? And how is there good in the world when every time someone messes up, much “worthier- than-thou” Christians insist that they can become God and deem other people to burn in hell? The fact that you want to see these preachers burn, rather than see them redeemed, seems to be reflective of this hatred and bitterness that you warned against.

        Lord have mercy on us.

        • English

          These people know exactly what they are doing conning vulnerable people out of their monthly wages, condemning people all the while behaving worst than the worlinans they proclaim that they are sent to save!

        Ok, gods true name is Yahweh.Exactly how does that get me anything in the religion dept?

      • Jim R

        If you want to be such a legalistic literalist, get it right. The name is not “Yahweh” but “YHWH”, which are the initials of, translated into English, “I Am Who Am” (Exodus 3:14). The name “Jehovah” (JHVH) comes from the same source, albeit a cross (pun intended) translation. Judging people to hell for using a different translation than you is by definition blasphemous, because only God/Yahweh/Jehovah/I AM can judge.

        You are wasting everyone’s time with this argument – and the atheists are laughing at all of us.

    This man should not be in anyone’s pulpit, he’s a fast talking charlatan, who has no respect for the admonition of the word of God. Why live separate from your “fiancee” when she’s given birth to a very present human being, he already committed the sin, stop acting pious and self righteous, everything he live’s and say’s is blatantly contradictory to the word of God.
    It would be just fine for him to be just who he is IF he were not a minister. * Dietrich Haddan*

      Actually Diedrick wants to shack up but his fiancee is the one who said NO which is why he and Pastor OG Crip was arguing at the dinner table because he was tryin to tell Dietrick shacking up is against God’s word.
      My problem has always been this when it comes to so called religious follks, if you going to follow the word of GOD, DO IT 100%, do not be nick picking at certain scriptures in the bible because it doesn’t coincide with your lifestyle. that’s IS bogus!!!

          • Val

            My point is, it’s obvious their parishioners know all this stuff, right. So, if they don’t have a problem with it then what’s the point of speculating about how bad they may or may not be.

              Perhaps, when your daughter finds herself being “hustled” and abused by some pimp we should all turn our backs and say “he has his hustle going on–why should we care.”

              With your type of mentality black Americans will always be followers, in this predominately white nation; never leaders; but it’s okay just as long as we get whatever our “hustle” is on–right??—Artofwar

              I used to think that too but i know better now . Not until I asked to be shown the Truth about God and the true meaning of Life . Talking about Name the true name of God is a two letter word “HU” found in every sound of Life . from the falling rain to the sound of the cricket and the single note of a flute, a child crying and the laughter of lovers , the wind blowing and the roar of the sea.or the active fan in your room to the electrical hum of the power carriers above you. Listen carefully and you will hear this sound “HU” pronounced as the name “Hugh” behind all these sounds . The same is what anyone can you to connect to the boundless world of Spirit where GOD resides . Not somewhere far away from you as most people think but just around you and as near to you as your heartbeat. if indeed you want to try and verify this open secret . Find a place quiet where you can spend a half hour in peace and quiet . Close your eyes and fill yourself with love . this is simple. and eazy . Just remembering something that made you feel good . or someone you love. or one reason you are grateful to be alive today something positive worth living for is all you need to fill yourself with love. ” With eyes closed and in a relaxed manner. Sing very gently to yourself the word “HU” in a long drawn out manner and with your exhalation as you gently breath in and out . Also ask yourself the question .” What is this HU ?” Is God Real ? How can i know ? I would really love to know. Do this for about 15 to minutes. in one session. You can have a repeat session for as many times as you like and its best attended to while you are about to sleep or just waking up from bed . try for at least 3- 4 weeks . Most people have a result in one session and for those who do not . Keep a diary of what you can remember in your dreams or any strange coincidences taking place in your life . If you are able to extend this to some 3 months or so. I can assure there will be a true revelation to you that “life is not a random walk” and that everything in lfe has a controlling figure to it . You can call this coordinator of life any name you want . Maybe GOD . The force or whatever you wish to call it. One thing i can guarantee for you is that if you try this exercise correctly you will not be the same again about your view of life and God . You will only find out when you are ready . Bon Voyage

People go to church to hear the gospel and this crap is going on? Yes this needs to be told because it will weed out all the bad ones. I found out stuff was going on at my church and now I don’t go there anymore. I’d rather worship alone and be positive than go to church with all that drama.

            • fedup

              burning you are correct, it is jones who has it twisted.

              there is a BIG difference between “beating a child” and discipline, here are a few of the 25 biblical passages to support our opinion…

              1) Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol.

              Hebrews 12:11

              2) For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

              Proverbs 13:24

              3) Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.

              Proverbs 19:18

              4) Discipline your son, for there is hope; do not set your heart on putting him to death.

              Proverbs 29:17

              5) Discipline your son, and he will give you rest; he will give delight to your heart.

              Proverbs 22:6

              6) Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

              Ephesians 6:2-3 ESV / 8 helpful votes

              7) “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”

              Proverbs 29:15

              8) The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.

              Proverbs 22:15 ESV / 7 helpful votes

              9) Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.

              Proverbs 20:30

              10) Blows that wound cleanse away evil; strokes make clean the innermost parts.

              Hebrews 12:5-6

              and of course burning there are going to be those who claim that these passages are “old and outdated”…but the word of god changes not from the beginning to the end of time…it is so called experts who claim to know what is best for a child…creflo maybe should not have chocked his daughter but what is lost here is that this girl was only 14-15 yrs old trying to leave her house as 12am in the morning to go to a party with grown men….this was not a kiddie party with alcohol and who knows what else and she was told not to leave and defiantly defying her father and was talking back…basically told him she can go where she wants to….

            Never use the rod in anger. Always try reason first. Then, before using the rod, explain why your using it and how it could have been avoided if they had just listened and obeyed. Afterward, tell them you still love them and hope it never has to happen again. Cry with them and don’t be ashamed to discipline in this manner.

        PREACH: waking up the masses… WHAT? THERE IS “NO” ONCE SAVED-ALWAYS SAVED… JESUS told us that our names can be blotted out of the Book of Life. He said also…What good would it do a man to gain the whole world and lose His soul. Can we lose our salvation, you bet your boots we can. REMEMBER, he said even if we were just LUKEWARM, He would spew us out of His mouth. James told us that …Faith without works was dead. If you show me your faith, I will show you my works. We can fall-away from grace. Remember we are saved by grace, yes but we will be judged by our works…Our salvation is not sealed in stone. See HEBREWS 6:4-6…and HEBREWS 10:26-31…If we sin willfully AFTER that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful judgment and fiery indignation…Oh boy…REVELATION 3:5…He that overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I WILL NOT BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, BUT I WILL CONFESS HIS NAME BEFORE MY FATHER, AND BEFORE HIS ANGELS!

            PREACH: SORRY, guess that was just your sermon for yesterday…

            • Preach: Waking Up The Masses

              When I made the comment,I wasn’t talking about that, I was saying those who TRULY belong to CHR!ST need not worry.

        His name is Jesus Christ and it’s ok to say it. Respect Him enough to spell it right and do away with all the 3’s & exclamation points. I have no idea who you’re referring to. It’s not slick or cute so do it right or be quiet. You can’t remix everything!

      • Rhonda Hunt

        Preach So you think that our behavior has nothing to do with whether we are saved or not,in the light of scripture that can not be true,Revelations 22:14 says otherwise,truth is all of Christianity is in danger of losing out with Yahweh and suffering rejection,have you and others ever researched this false Religious system to see if it was legitimate or not,you should,you will be surprised,thing are the way they are in this religion because it is corrupt and its people are corrupt,I notice there are many so called preachers that are not on the list both white and black,so it is not a race matter,Christianity believes that you are saved because a person confesses Jesus and then lines himself up with Christian thoughts and idea’s,but is that what constitutes salvation,or is it the one who has Messiah birthed inside of them,and walks the path that Messiah walks,this idea that a person is eternally secure in false religion is a myth,about all these so called minsters are good for is to mine for gold in the scriptures and enrich themselves at peoples expense,most live far better than most of their followers and those they claim to have authority over,and they never tell them the truth,mostly because they have no truth to impart to them to start with,and we are just to dense to see them for what they are,they are false Prophets,false teachers, brute beast the Bible calls them,dumb dogs.—-Jim Hunt

    • El Hajj

      First there is no body of Christ . The saviors true name is Yahshua Not jesus the name jesus has only been around for only 500 year so what was the savior name for the first 1500 year . See that he was a Hebrew and there is no letter j in the Hebrew alphabets His name could not possible be Christ or jesus . Stop following the preacher and so called elders in the church and learn the true word for yourself . And the fathers true name is Yahweh not god or lord . those are titles not name and attrbutes

        Look again………Jesus, the suffering Messiah, fortold in Isaiah 53………

        ……..Isaiah 53 ………

        53 Who has believed our message?
        To whom has the Lord revealed his powerful arm?
        2 My servant grew up in the Lord’s presence like a tender green shoot,
        like a root in dry ground.
        There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance,
        nothing to attract us to him.
        3 He was despised and rejected—
        a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.
        We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.
        He was despised, and we did not care.

        4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;
        it was our sorrows that weighed him down.
        And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,
        a punishment for his own sins!
        5 But he was pierced for our rebellion,
        crushed for our sins.
        He was beaten so we could be whole.
        He was whipped so we could be healed.
        6 All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.
        We have left God’s paths to follow our own.
        Yet the Lord laid on him
        the sins of us all.

        7 He was oppressed and treated harshly,
        yet he never said a word.
        He was led like a lamb to the slaughter.
        And as a sheep is silent before the shearers,
        he did not open his mouth.
        8 Unjustly condemned,
        he was led away.
        No one cared that he died without descendants,
        that his life was cut short in midstream.
        But he was struck down
        for the rebellion of my people.
        9 He had done no wrong
        and had never deceived anyone.
        But he was buried like a criminal;
        he was put in a rich man’s grave.

        10 But it was the Lord’s good plan to crush him
        and cause him grief.
        Yet when his life is made an offering for sin,
        he will have many descendants.
        He will enjoy a long life,
        and the Lord’s good plan will prosper in his hands.
        11 When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish,
        he will be satisfied.
        And because of his experience,
        my righteous servant will make it possible
        for many to be counted righteous,
        for he will bear all their sins.
        12 I will give him the honors of a victorious soldier,
        because he exposed himself to death.
        He was counted among the rebels.
        He bore the sins of many and interceded for rebels.

        • Reggie Smith

          Still dose not change the fact there never was a savior name jesus . his real name Yahshua Which means salvation Of Yahweh.The name jesus only came in to existence 500 years ago so what was his name for the 1st 1500 years and he was a Hebrew not Caucasian and in the Hebrew alphabet has no letter j so how did his name become jesus thru a lie by the Catholic church the house of Satan . People need to study for there self and stop listening to there ling Pastor who do not not know the true word of Yahweh are true father not a god or lord which are pagan titles ? he is are true father

            Psalm 22……the crucifixion psalm…..

            …..Psalm 22……

            ….The Suffering, Praise, and Posterity of the Messiah……

            22 My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?
            Why are You so far from helping Me,
            And from the words of My groaning?
            2 O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear;
            And in the night season, and am not silent.
            3 But You are holy,
            Enthroned in the praises of Israel.
            4 Our fathers trusted in You;
            They trusted, and You delivered them.
            5 They cried to You, and were delivered;
            They trusted in You, and were not ashamed.
            6 But I am a worm, and no man;
            A reproach of men, and despised by the people.
            7 All those who see Me ridicule Me;
            They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
            8 “He trusted in the Lord, let Him rescue Him;
            Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!”
            9 But You are He who took Me out of the womb;
            You made Me trust while on My mother’s breasts.
            10 I was cast upon You from birth.
            From My mother’s womb
            You have been My God.
            11 Be not far from Me,
            For trouble is near;
            For there is none to help.
            12 Many bulls have surrounded Me;
            Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled Me.
            13 They gape at Me with their mouths,
            Like a raging and roaring lion.
            14 I am poured out like water,
            And all My bones are out of joint;
            My heart is like wax;
            It has melted within Me.
            15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd,
            And My tongue clings to My jaws;
            You have brought Me to the dust of death.
            16 For dogs have surrounded Me;
            The congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me.
            They pierced My hands and My feet;
            17 I can count all My bones.
            They look and stare at Me.
            18 They divide My garments among them,
            And for My clothing they cast lots.
            19 But You, O Lord, do not be far from Me;
            O My Strength, hasten to help Me!
            20 Deliver Me from the sword,
            My precious life from the power of the dog.
            21 Save Me from the lion’s mouth
            And from the horns of the wild oxen!
            You have answered Me.
            22 I will declare Your name to My brethren;
            In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
            23 You who fear the Lord, praise Him!
            All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him,
            And fear Him, all you offspring of Israel!
            24 For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
            Nor has He hidden His face from Him;
            But when He cried to Him, He heard.
            25 My praise shall be of You in the great assembly;
            I will pay My vows before those who fear Him.
            26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
            Those who seek Him will praise the Lord.
            Let your heart live forever!
            27 All the ends of the world
            Shall remember and turn to the Lord,
            And all the families of the nations
            Shall worship before You.
            28 For the kingdom is the Lord’s,
            And He rules over the nations.
            29 All the prosperous of the earth
            Shall eat and worship;
            All those who go down to the dust
            Shall bow before Him,
            Even he who cannot keep himself alive.
            30 A posterity shall serve Him.
            It will be recounted of the Lord to the next generation,
            31 They will come and declare His righteousness to a people who will be born,
            That He has done this.

            …..Luke 1:31-33…..
            31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

          • James Smith

            Okay Reggie Smith all your great Hebrew lesson’s means nothing to an English speaking people. Are you saying that Yahweh cannot speak English? He’s such a great and miraculous God but cannot speak our language that we were born in. We must all know Hebrew and it must be our language of choice or we do not have salvation? You my friend have been led astray yourself, by your scholarly brotherhood, of modern origin. We are a people of ” heart ” and to the One that hold’s our Spiritual adoption, He searches our hearts for what and who we believe in and serve so sovereign. Not a language, not a teaching, but a a humble holiness in the Messiah. When I was contrite and broken and trembling at God’s Holy Word. The angel of the Lord was sent to my heart, he spoke with an audible voice. And characterized Himself as Christ. In him was the salvation of the Lord. Not what man has taught me, because every man is a liar, but God is the truth. I was baptized into Christ, not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit…incarnate and a power of fire, glorifying Only One of Whom is Sovereign. Your Hebrew scholarly church following disgusts me. If you had of been there that day that God immersed me into His Holy power. You would understand. I wasn’t in church, no preacher laid his hands on me. Instead a ” Spiritual Rabbi ” from heaven came down on me while I was praying, contrite and broken, in bitterness of heart, in prison serving a sentence of fifty years for murder. I wasn’t praying in Hebrew. I was clinging to a King James Version Bible, asking God ” to please show me you are real “. Fasting for forty days…seeking with all my heart. Learn something as you read my testimony. All Christians are about today, is selling God’s word for a price. If you are broke we do not want you in our church. If you cannot tithe, donate or offer, we will not pray for you, because your faith is shallow. The depth of these things have all but ruined our nation and prevented the lost from coming into the flock. If people come to your church and all they hear is your ” Hebrew ” explanations for the word that they read. You become a foreigner to them. And eventually they tire of your Hebrew and leave. I was touched and incarnated by a King of Sovereignty. That does not hold to what men preaches. Because He is also a Father above all father’s. And what He taught Christ to tell us, is when The Comforter, of whom is The Holy Ghost comes in Christ’s name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and BRING TO REMEMBRANCE EVERYTHING CHRIST HAS SAID UNTO US. Yahweh as you call Him, is not an English speaking Father. So I must be a liar…saying all this that I have, making God into something that He’s not. According to your Hebrew gospel. I feel deeply concerned about Hebrew scholar’s. While they strain at a gnat, they swallow a camel. Fast, pray, become contrite and broken. Go on a forty day fast…find God’s Sovereignty as I have. See with the eye’s of your heart what I have found with mine. You’ll plead a different cause for The Lord when you do.

            • 1Evangelist2all

              THE LORD teaches those who have eyes to see and ears to hear, and those who teach in vain will lead a huge host of those can be deceived and THE FATHER said “I HATE THE DECEIVER AND THE DECEIVED” Why you asked, because if they knew HIM they would NOT be deceived, but because they want what isn’t there’s to take they believe a deceiver so they can take it by force, and have thereby made themselves unworthy to walk before HIM in robes of white, they traded the truth for a lie and have pierced themselves through with many heartaches, and they will have, as did Cain, the mark of their un-repented hearts forever! I’ve also heard THE LORD’S voice throughout my 30+yrs. walking with HIS MESSIAH, our SAVIOR, YAHSHUA haMESHIA SAR SHALOM! And yes you are right in taking yourself away from those who teach falsehood for they teach it for unrighteous gain, they make themselves believe because of their masterful and cunning ways they deserve the money of many when they have those who don’t have enough sitting right before them and they know it too! They pretend as if that poor person was “GODLY” enough they would have what they need so why should they give to them??? Now, here’s the way a righteous heart feels and thinks, I will give to that poor person because nothing is hid that is not revealed within the “GODLY” those who serve THE LORD with their whole heart and because of this, their compassion continually overflows into giving to those before them because YAHSHUA’S compassion within them causes them to morn with a broken heart for those before them who need help… what they DO NOT understand… GOD IS LOVE AND IF GOD’S LOVE IS IN YOU, YOU CANNOT HELP BUT TO GIVE, BECAUSE GIVING IS WHO YOU ARE SPIRITUALLY AND A FULL HEART OVERFLOWS OF GOD’S LOVE, SO THEIR ACTIONS WILL PROVE THEY ARE THE SONS OF GOD! No one will be saved by their words, but by their actions, and their righteous deeds are what give clothing, described as “Robes Of Righteousness” these are the ones THE FATHER LOVES!! No one can I love GOD, but fail in loving his brother, for if they loved GOD, they would be zealous to help their brother in everyway possible, and no one could restrain them, for they would go to great lengths with every ounce of energy they have to make certain their brothers are taken care of in everyway, completely 100%!! NOT ONE THING LACKING! Because this is how our FATHER IN HEAVEN HAS TREATED US IN HIS GRACEFUL MESSIAH, HIS ONLY SON YAHSHUA. HE GAVE US AMPLY EVERYTHING, WITH NOTHING LACKING, HE MAKE CERTAIN WE HAD AND HAVE EVERYTHING WE NEED 100% HE LEFT NOTHING OUT, BUT FILLED US UP COMPLETELY… FOREVER… ETERNALLY.., WITHOUT END…
              Do we give like this? Do we love like this? Do we know one in need and have not given like this? WHY? Make GOD’S LOVE complete in you… giving is not a way to go broke, it’s a way to get riches beyond compare, being like GOD IS AN AWESOME TASK, AND THOSE WHO WALK WITH HIM IN THIS WILL KNOW HIS GLORY AND BE GIVEN THINGS THE EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND THE EAR HAS NOT HEARD AND THE MIND HAS NOT CONCEIVED… THESE ARE THE RICHES GOD GIVES TO THOSE WHO INVITE HIM TO SIT DOWN WITH THEM TO EAT DINNER WITHIN THEIR HEART… THEY SHALL BE CALLED THE SONS OF GOD!!!

              All your write say nothing to the question of the Saviors true name and Yahweh real name . Jesus is a pagan name god is title lord is a title all that other crap your spuuning means nothing

                and you my friend have been so deceived… have you ever read the Bible? sounds like you are parroting nothing more than the direct quotes of someone you are being deceived by. I am sorry for you.

              • unpleasantfacts478

                The phrase “יהוה אלהים” = “Lord God” in English. Grow up. You’re not even writing it in Hebrew so why bother?

            • sonrisebrothers

              James you might be a little rough on Hebrew scholar. In Ex 6:3 in the KJV it says Unto Abraham Issac and Jacob I was known as God Almighty ( El God, Shaddai Almighty God, Hebrew as Moses was Hebrew and understood Hebrew) but by my name Jehovah (Yod Hey vav hey from where we get Yehovah or Jehovah ) . It could be straining the gnat but maybe that helps Reggie with his understanding of God. God revealed Himself to Moses as YHWH the self existent I AM. Modern Christians have gotten name and title mixed up Lord, GOd and YHWH are not the same thing as well as Jesus and Yashua or Yeshua are the same thing. Jesus is the Latin transliteration of YE Zeus or Son of Zeus. Not a big deal but informational. May God give you grace to fulfill your destiny in all He has called you to do in HIs Name!

              • Katherine McChesney

                The name Jesus is NOT a transliteration of Zeus. You are perpetrating a lie of Satan. Jesus is the name of our Savior, the Son of God.

          • Wanderer

            As a seminary student, it is very interesting to me that you bring up “the real name of Jesus.” I literally have no idea where you gather up your information for stating the number of years in which you think the name “Jesus” came into existence. And I don’t really know why you mention the Hebrew alphabet.

            Because, the reality is that the New Testament was written in Greek. You are correct in that Jesus was a Jew, and is not what we deem Caucasian. But, just because he was Jewish does not mean he spoke Hebrew. He might have, but he probably spoke Aramaic. No matter what he spoke, the people who wrote about Jesus in the Gospels spoke Greek. The Greek alphabet also has no J letter, but the transliteration from the Greek letter, iota, inherits a “J” sound in the English language. Ἰησοῦς is the Greek word for Jesus, which is a rendition of Yeshua, from the Hebrew ישוע. This often gets transliterated into Joshua or Jeshua. Also, Christ comes from the Greek word Χριστός, which means anointed one, or messiah. In fact, it comes from a Hebrew word, מָשִׁיחַ (Māšîaḥ ,that also means Messiah. It is a name signifiying that Jesus is anointed, is the Messiah and son of God. It is a title for Jesus, not his name.

            This is simply a matter of language, and it literally has nothing to do with “a lie by the Catholic church the house of Satan.” Also, the Hebrew word for YHW, or the tetragram, according to Jewish tradition, is never supposed to be fully written out of spoken of, for fear that actually saying the Lord’s name ends in death.

            I’m not exactly sure why you are so concerned with the names, but your facts are wrong, and that certainly doesn’t deem you worthy to make claims that another church is a house of Satan. Besides, how Christlike is that anyway?

            • Ryan

              Wanderer, thank you for taking the time to write this. I had similar sentiments (why get so riled up about the name?), but I didn’t have the time or inclination to research the language background you provided. I found it fascinating and enlightening.

              • p3orion

                I agree. This pinhead-dancing about what Jesus’ actual name was is irrelevant. Christopher Columbus was actually named Cristobal Colombo; does it matter? No!

                MERRYICHRISTMAS: You could change your name here since it’s a “Pagan name”. JESUS wasn’t born in December. Maybe you didn’t know that.

          • Laz Cee

            I’ll tell you the same as I told El Hajj. Christ translated in Greek/Hebrew means “The Anointed One” and Jesus is translated from the Greek spelling “lesous” which is translated from the Hebrew name Yeshu or Yeshua/Yehoshuah but it still is translated in English as Jesus. Although you mean well that really is a nonessential issue and that’s not something I learned from the preacher or the elders but from as the bible says “studying to show thyself approved, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing The Word in Truth”. So to spend time on names is senseless focus on “The Message” Grace and Peace to you my Brother and I hope I didn’t Offend you for that was certainly not my intention.

            • Reggie Smith

              Greek translation still does not Translate Yahshua name to jesus is that is a pagan name for the savior! you can tell your self any thing you want and keep the lie going but it is not the truth . Next you will be telling me that the name Yahweh is Translated from Greek means god or lord . Here a fact for you the name Yahweh was in the original scripture 6,823 and replaced with god and lord which are titles . He a waning from Yahweh in Scripture ReV: 22:18-21

              • Brad Will

                Iesous appears in the Septuagint which Yeshua quotes from. You’re wrong Reggie. Just plain wrong. I disagree with changing people’s name, especially the King of Kings, but you should not take it to this extreme. God is not interested in vocalised, syllabic perfection. He is interested in whose authority one is referring to.

        • WHAT!?

          How the hell is that proof? You’re using the literature in question as proof against your opponent?

          • p3orion

            The God to whom I pray is smart enough to know when I’m calling on Him no matter what name I use.

        • WHAT!?

          BTW, ‘Foretold’ does not work as even partial evidence if you were not there for the foretelling AND/OR the telling. You have to be there for at LEAST the actual telling-and to make a partial claim. You’re at BEST 400 years too late (assuming the Church hasn’t changed even more than I suggest in the last 400 years).

          Even this said, there is overwhelming evidence suggesting a god does not exist, so none of this even matters. Your beliefs are likely a bunch of strung-together fairy tales that several illiterate/ignorant/uneducated archaic desert laymen spoke into existence once people learned to write; effectively playing the world’s longest running and largest game of ‘telephone’ in history.

          • The Old Hippie

            There is a vast difference between “suggesting” and “proving”. But then that must be why you have to belittle others in order to make yourself look more intelligent, at least to yourself.

          • Susan

            As someone once said… “If you are right and we all die and just go into the ground, no harm, no foul BUT, if I am right.. you spend eternity in hell crying out and not being heard…” I think I will take my way… Jesus is The way, The truth and The Light, the only Son of God and way to salvation from sin.

      • edwahzj_one

        What i do see is Israel rejecting the true Messiah > (Jesus the Christ of God ) and WILL INDEED accept a false messiah who WILL stand in the holy place committing the prophesied abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet, Da.9:26-27 Furthermore, Exodus 6:3 states that God said to Moses, that He was not known to Abraham Isaac and Jacob by the name JEHOVAH ( YOHD HEY WAH HEY) but they knew Him by the name > “God Almighty” Jehovah Witnesses boast on a formal name and Abraham Isaac and Jacob knowing God has Almighty But ME I have my assurance and praise knowing God as FATHER. Therefore, knowing God through Jesus the Christ as FATHER places me at a much much more intimate relationship with the Fatherhood of God > Galatians 4:6.
        Moreover your assumption of names being wrong is like telling Abraham and Isaac and Jacob they are in error for ONLY knowing God as Almighty and telling Moses he’s in error for ONLY knowing God has Jehovah. lol BY THE WAY; By the name of Jesus the Christ I was sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise and you left with nothing screening at a name but failed to discern THE WORD MADE FLESH, the Word of GOD’S Voice

Although you mean well that really is a nonessential issue and that’s not something I learned from the preacher or the elders but from as the bible says “studying to show thyself approved, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing The Word in Truth”. So to spend time on names is senseless focus on “The Message” Grace and Peace to you my Brother and I hope I didn’t Offend you for that was certainly not my intention.

          You have not clue what your talking about . that another lie of your pastor and the Catholic Church the House of Satan .

          • Susan

            Reggie Smith… please get out of that group of deceivers you are with, get into the Bible and turn to Jesus truely.. come to the light and get away from satan and his minions, which is obviously where you are now.

        Maybe that is why the Roman’s called them “Christians”. Idiot.

        We all will find out real soon that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!!!

        • tesmith47

          NOT!!!!

        Jesus is a translation of the name Yahshua, just like Juan is translated John. There is no name CHRIST, it is a title, “The Christ”, so it is “Jesus, the Christ” or saviour. Yes, people need to read the Bible, pray and attend a Bible believing, teaching church and there are plenty of them, too.! The body of Christ is it’s people, not the building where they meet.

        YOU ARE A FREAKING IDIOT.

        Romans 7:4
        Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

        Romans 12:5
        So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

        1 Corinthians 10:16

        The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood ofChrist? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body ofChrist?

        1 Corinthians 12:27

        Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

        i could go on and list ALL OF THE OTHER SCRIPTURES THAT SHOW THAT YOU ARE A LIAR SENT FROM SATAN, but the point is made. You say there is no such thing as the BODY OF CHRIST, and the BIBLE just showed you to be a LIAR.

        “And the fathers true name is Yahweh not god or lord . those are titles not name and attrbutes”

        Not only can you not spell but you don’t seem to know the meaning of the word ATTRIBUTES. First the FATHER’S “NAME” is not Yahweh. THAT IS OUR NAME FOR THE FATHER, just like JEHOVAH, there is only ONE PLACE IN THE BIBLE WHERE GOD TELLS SOMEONE HIS NAME and that is in EXODUS 3:14 AND THE NAME IS ” I AM THAT I AM”. Which is why when JESUS in JOhn 8:58 claimed to be that very “I AM” the Jews, who knew what he was referring to, tried to stone Him. YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT CHRIST, THE BIBLE, SALVATION OR ANYTHING and you LIED about there being no such thing as the BODY OF CHRIST, repent.

      • tesmith47

        there aint no gods, of any sort!!!!

      • Cale Carter

        First Yahushua is not hebrew so the person we refer to as Jesus or Joshua would not answer to that name…the name Jesus is very old but the letter J is only about 300 years old…. Christ is a greek word meaning annointed or Messiah…. and GODs true name is not YAHWEH.. that is a guess.. we do not know his true name but in Hebrew it is spelled YHVH. Learn yourself before misleading others friend.

      • unpleasantfacts478

        I wonder if Yahshua is so insecure and petty that he gives a toot that someone Anglicized his name to fit into the language better. How pitiful.

    • Adriane Harris

      Its sad for the socalled preachers, but the bible said in the last days there would be false prophets, not to follow a man if he is not following Christ, many will say Lord, Lord and He will say :”Depart from me ye evil servant, I know you not”! Now we know just who He will be talkin’ to.

      • peeler englewood

        Yeah, seems like its been “end times” since man has been on the planet as false prophets (con men) have been around ever since humans have been! That “it must be the end times because of all the false prophets around” is just a scare tactic.

    • billyboi57

      Fits of all, a church is not a building. It is a body of people gathered to worship God. Second, do not worry about these evil doers. God will exact His wrath on them at the appropriate time.

      You sure are angry with all those exclamation points.
