I donít like to dwell too much on what is a sin and what is not. I like for everyone to enjoy the life God gave to us, especially the young.

Everyone view sinful things differently. If you believe you have done something sinful, look up and say, Lord forgive me. Once you ask God to forgive what you and only you viewed as something sinful go on and enjoy the rest of your life. You know right from wrong, exercise that knowledge.

Why do you think God said he would forgive our sins? God knew as long as we are tempted we will sin. Donít let the word sin consume your life. I will never believe God condemns us to hell without giving us a chance to repent.

God has allowed us to experience so many things man had the ability to create. Donít let anyone thatís to narrow minded to accept change hinder you from all the things God has allowed. If you spend too much time on trying to figure out what a sin is, you just might miss out on something beautiful.

I canít stress enough for you to enjoy your life. There is no second chance to live your life over. Keep God in your Heart and he wont lead you into harmful situations. You will know when you did something you think God requires you to ask him for forgiveness. We are here to help each order not hinder.

Most of those that can point out your sins of how you are enjoying your life have never looked into a mirror. If we spent as much time correcting what we view as a sin in ourselves, we wouldnít have time to correct the sins we see in you.

Accept what God allows, heís the only one you have to answer to.

Peace to all.

The Government shut down. The IRS has it's sights on the UHOP. Israel is talking of military conflict with Iran. The US has it's eyes on Syria. Brother Baptist better take his winnings, say a nice lord forgive me for lying to these people and enjoy his life.. LOL
Has anybody seen the mighty Brother @Lorenzo?
I'm in Charlotte right now. Maybe I should stop by the Convocation to hear a word from Brother Bailey. Maybe he has some encouraging words in the wake of the current state of affairs in our world. Since the Government is shutdown maybe his club will close for business. Maybe he'll offer free meals to members who are struggling to make ends meet in this failing economy. Maybe he'll close some of the churches that are in close proximity and combine them into one. They could save money on monthly expenses. It makes sense because most of them are never filled to capacity, and membership numbers are on the decline. Maybe he could pull back on the nightly services and teach people his method of serving GOD since he doesn't attend service nightly.
Maybe I'm giving him too much credit. I'll just continue to enlighten my sisters and brothers.
AGAPE
Thank you. I actually find myself thirsty for words from you (and Gee Tee, MSD, and many other contributors on this site.) Again, thank you and be blessed.

Dearest sister thank you for your kind words. I must let you know that the GOD in you has already planted the seeds of truth. Nothing I can say will outweigh what the Most High has already put in your spirit and conscious. I'm simply restating what you already know to be true as it relates to the UHOP machine. As the incomparable Gee-Tee has said many times serving GOD is not a hard task. The mental chains of man made doctrines and dogmas are what make serving the Creator difficult.

Let's use an example. If you confront an individual who is your physical equal but he/she has a weapon and you don't it increases the fear. You're likely to concede. It's the same with mental confrontation. When we are confronted by "religious" men who are our mental equal but they possess religious titles like Daddy, Bishop, Apostle (holy weapons of oppression), etc. that same spirit of fear is invoked. We don't view them as normal men. We believe they know something that we don't. You can read and understand any book ever published except the bible is what you're conditioned to believe. Ironically, many "preachers" (and I use that title loosely) understand that and they use it to their advantage. Therefore, we concede to the "religious" oppressor against our own GOD given better judgement.

I find it interesting that most of what Brother Bailey says contradicts what the GOD in most members instructs them to do. I'm going to be bold and say NONE of the UHOP sisters and brothers that I know would take $2,000 every couple of months from their black sisters and brothers in this struggling economy. Especially when it is believed that the organization is "wealthy". Yet we trust a black man who "honestly robs" (read that again) his sisters and brothers simply because he claims that a "GOD" told him to do so. Clearly GOD needs our worthless paper money in order to establish "works" for him to bless us (insert sarcasm). Diamonds, gold, cattle, produce, the list goes on in terms of the wealth of the land that the Creator has given us. Yet we have let a Daddy convince us that GOD wants a piece of paper that was created by men who didn't even believe in him. Does GOD want it or do you want it Brother Bishop?

It's simple when we know better we do better. GOD is in us regardless to the church building we frequent. Society and men have created this monetary system that we rely on for basic survival. Brother Bishop(s)/Daddy have a basic understanding of heaven on earth while they literally sale us the promise of an after life. Food for thought.

Apostle Baptist was given an ultimatum by his bishop;

1. Return the winnings
2. Give the winning to charity (aka The HOP)
3. Keep the winnings and give up your license to preach.

I was waiting for someone else to post this truth brother @Hebrewsunite. I hope he takes option #3. Take the money and run for the hills. Ball up that useless Elder's letter/credential and throw it at Brother Bishop. I could care less about the lies he "preached" LOL.

Iíve always wondered why no one questioned why we have a choice of different Religions to believe in. Each one saying this, one saying that, donít do this donít do that. Wear this, eat that, some people say Lord, some says Allah, some say Messiah.

If you really think about it, following something or someone is really confusing. Thatís why you should never close your mind on things you donít understand. Years ago they believe sacrificing someone (by killing you) and offering your body up to God would somehow bless the ones that were spared.

In Africa, they eat Monkey, In Vietnam they eat Dog, In China they eat Rat. Cannibalism is still alive and well in some parts of the world. I could name a lot of things we find repulsive. Yet these people see no harm in the things they do.

We all believe differently, however when you are in something that has taken away your ability to think for yourself, you need to rethink what you are following. The Bible can be very confusing. If you take a verse and told ten people to interpret it, you would get 10 different answers. Thatís where discussion comes in. We are supposed to discuss things we donít understand with an open mind.

If some one wants to enforce you to think their way is the right and only way, move on. God is not confusing; God is not complicated, God is Love. If Love is injected into our discussion we will not fail. Iím not telling you to accept everything I say as gospel. Iím saying view it with an open mind. There is a lot I still need to learn. My mind is always open to all and any suggestions as long as it benefits us all. But when it becomes one sided on all the receiving goes one way something is truly wrong.

If this Minister has an ounce of Common Sense left after being brain wash all his life, he should run like hell and never look back. This is his chance to enjoy the life God gave him. Itís never too late. Hear us Pastor, you owe Puffy nothing.

This truly is the Devil spewing out Hate. Someone needs to cut Puffy balls off, heís gone too far. Why doesnít he practice what he preaches? Give the UHOP members back their money heís stolen under false pretense starting with me.

This Pastor has enough money to start his own Church. Itís his turn to be the peopleís Daddy. Havenít he called enough Men Daddy. Wouldnít that be a slap in the face to Puffy?
