I've reserved my comments on the whole "100 Black preachers meeting with Trump" fiasco in fear of reacting instead of responding...However, I think I'm ready to respond now. I probably shouldn't even speak on it, but I have to let this out!
Let us stand for the reading of God's word!
Turn with me to the book of Matthew, chapter 6...verse 24.
When you got it, say Amen!
On the count of 3, let's read this together.
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.- Matthew 6:24
You may be seated in the presence of God
Preachers, Pastors, Priests, or whatever you like to call them LOOOOOVEEE to use this here passage to verbally beat you for not giving what they consider enough to their respective causes..... in the name of Jesus. With that said, this should a very VERY familiar piece of scripture to most, men of the cloth and otherwise.
I really tried to see this situation from all angles.
At first,I'll admit I didn't think it was real.
A couple pastors? Maybe,...100? Nah...109? Couldn't be!
No way this could be happening....
Then, I tried to give them benefit of the doubt, I thought maybe they're trying to be heard or even better yet corner and confront him (Sorry, I'm a bit confrontational by nature) but certainly there is absolutely no way any of these men of God would be on that Antichrist's side AFTER recent events.
Then I saw video....of some black preachers coming out and actually defending presidential hopeful Donald Trump,his comments, and lack of policy.
After I picked my face up off of the floor, I immediately got sick to my stomach
Let's be clear. First, I'm not condemning all pastors. I'm not condemning all pastors who went to the meeting. In fact, I'm not condemning anyone. I don't have a problem with 100 Black pastors meeting....I don't have a problem with 100 pastors meeting with ANY candidate, even though we all know what the deal was with Donny Trump. I just can't seem to wrap my mind around them going in with no direction, and coming out with just a few repeatable soundbites. The guys endorsing Trump after said "meeting" sound like a bunch of star struck groupies from Love and Politics or something!
Jamal Bryant has been outspoken with his criticism of these pastors had some good points. No way you could get 100 white preachers to endorse this fool but here you come with your hands out.
"Yes Mr Trump sir, I'd like some cake sir."
You can get 100 black preachers to meet about endorsing a clear racist but can't get 100 black preachers to meet about black...sorry I tend to get a little passionate from the pulpit.
I could go on for days, but let's get back to scripture.
Some pastors use Matthew 6:24 to make their flock feel bad about not giving enough. Let's flip it for a second.
Pastors, you cannot serve both God and money either!
I know yo...I mean God gotta have his money and you gotta have yours...but I'm sure if he thought you needed more, he would give it to you. After all, God provides...right?
My question is, how much money did you get to come out for Trump?
We ask that you come!
Is there one today?
Will one stand up and tell how much you got paid to endorse this raving lunatic?
*Musicians play Jeopardy Music*
I believe there are 2 that will come forward.
Let's end with one more scripture and you can go get your Sunday Brunch and be home in time for your football.
Here's another scripture that, why well known, may not be as well known as the other... but it's pretty self explanatory.
"Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly"
Jesus didn't flip over tables so you could sell out cuh!
