Hebrews 6:1

Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God

The Bible refers to repentance from dead works as a foundational doctrine of Christianity. That means that a full grasp of what this is all about will be crucial for a believer to be able to move on into the deeper things from God’s Word.

Yet for so many church goers repentance is based on very little understanding – resulting in many pseudo-spiritual, highly dramatic, theatrical demonstrations of contrition for sinful acts at the altar.

This behavior is far from consistent with the Word.

True repentance is having a genuine change of mind about something.

Every time I preach the Word, people are repenting all over the room, since they are hearing something new from the Word that they…

Angel in disguise?

image

  Do you all  believe in angels in disguise? Like God sent someone to test you? Well, I do. Today I went to Walmart to do a little grocery shopping. After I was finished and FINALLY found what seemed like a short line, I got in it. As I wasunloading my things, a elderly woman asked if she could cut in front because all she had was cereal and milk and a sick child in the car. Of course I said yeah. So after she got in front me, she handed me this coin and said “keep it in your pocket, a guardian angel will always be with you.” I was shocked, what I did was common  courtesy. I thanked her and she said “God bless you.” I told my mom about it later that and we came to the conclusion that God was testing me. The woman was a angel is duaguise. What do you all think ok this? Whats your interpretation?

You said your name is WHAT?

Do you find it hard to get a job because your name is to ethnic or ghetto? I assure you, you do not stand alone. My first name is LaQuesha, and if I tell you what the rest of it is, you’ll really be in awe. I’ve always been told “your name is ghetto and/or hood.” I’ve also been asked “how you gone get a job with a name like that?” But I’ve always loved my name, despite the negativity. I can proudly admit my name is on H.S diploma, a college degree, several awards and certificates, so why would I be discouraged? My mom even said; “I don’t now what I was thinking when I named you.” I laughed and said “neither do I.” Despite how many stereotpes come with ethnic names, I don’t let my name make me, I make my name. Now when people I know hear the name ‘LaQuesha’ a smile will touch their face. LaQuesha is smart, educated, a hard worker and on top of all that she’s beautiful. So yes my name is LaQuesha, LaQuesha Monique Sharmane Williams. So who’s mad? The moral of this story is if you have a overly ethnic name, it’s A-Okay because your name doesn’t define you, you define it.  This is to all the LaQuesha’s, Shaquita’s, Champange’s, LaQuita’s, etc.

Kindergarten Graduate Murdered by Father

Shirley
Some people say that our world is coming to an end. With the events that has been occurring worldwide, it’s not so hard to believe. So many children are murdered at such young ages. Jonylah Watkins of Chicago, IL was six months when she died of a gun shot wound. Tramelle Sturgis of South Bend, IN was 10-years-old when he was beaten to death by his father. Hadiya Pendleton of Chicago, IL was 15 when she was shot to death. Just a couple a days ago 6-year-old Shirley Mundia was stabbed to death by her own father in South Bend, IN. The father was shot and killed by SBPD when they broke the door down and seen him on top of her putting a knife through her. There had been evidence of domestic violence in the household, but it wasn’t always responded to or handled properly by officers. This is another sad story when a mother has to bury her child. This is not how its suppose to be. To many children are dying young an not enough are living to see adulthood. We all say something has got to change but what? What do we do when the violence is taken place inside of the home where the child lies his or her head every night? We want the new law regarding guns to be intact, but will that really solve anything? There are so many questions that can be asked when it comes to children and death but not enough answers. The first person the public want to blame is Obama, but how we can put blame on him? Its true he is our president or there are only so many things he can accomplish in a term. We need to come together as nation. Be more observant, report things, even if its just a little incident. The police needs to become more involved as well, not just through minor cases to the side. This is all so heartbreaking. Something has to be done by all of us. We can’t expect one man to solve all or our issues. R.I.P Shirley Mundia, fly high baby girl.

You want Respect? Act like It

respect
I often get irritated by some women. Black, White, Hispanic, Indian… Shall I go on? I just want to talk about the word R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me. So often I hear women say “men are disrespectful.” They can be referring to their boyfriends, the father of their children, their husbands, or just a random guy from a club. My issue with this is women allow this to happen. I personally know women who put themselves ‘out there’ and sleep around with any and every man who will give them the time of day. Yet they get highly upset when a man or anyone else for that matter calls them ‘hoe’ or a ‘whore.’ My advice to you, you hoe is to stop sleeping around. You don’t have to open your legs to any man who offers to buy you food, buy you a drink, take you out, etc. Take things slowly for a change; get to know this person before you lie down with them. On another note, women who are no longer involved with their children fathers get mad and upset when this man disrespect them in front on his family, friends and/or girlfriends. The sad part about this story is they will turn around and be right back in his face a few days later. EXCUSE ME!? Who does that? You are never supposed to let a man treat you in a horrible manner and jump when he needs you. How do ever expect him to respect you know when you allow, yes ALLOW him treat you like s**t. What I find humorous is women try to make up excuses as to why they still stand by this man side. “Oh, he was just going through something” or “I had to do it, he’d do it for me.” My favorite one is “well he apologized.” Then there are those women who will secretly wait, and wait for their “man” to call them. They get ignored for days at a time, but when he’s ready for you, he calls you and your all bright eyed and bushy tailed letting him come on over. Then you complain about the way he acts and how you treat you. It’s no one’s fault, but your own. I don’t mean to be rude or stolid, but women we have to do better. We have to be better, it’s time to put your foot down and take a stand for yourself. So many of us are so quick to talk about someone else’s relationship, but your relationship is probably equivalent, if not worse than there is. I’m tired of hearing and seeing women complain about the same old’ stuff when it comes to their man and respect. Don’t wine and complain. Do something about it, if he won’t change, move on.
