Jamal Bryant’s Fall From Grace

May 31, 2016

Jamal Bryant

45-year-old university educated pastor Jamal Bryant has experienced an ongoing fall from grace that needs to be corrected. Bryant was once married to beautiful, educated “Real Housewives Of Potomac” reality star, Gizelle Bryant, who is the mother of his 3 children. However, he cheated on her during their marriage with a member of their congregation, who was 17-years-old. The underage girl became pregnant. More recently, Bryant impregnated another woman after his divorce and out of wedlock. There are now claims a woman was pressured into aborting his baby after an affair, but refused and gave birth to his son last summer. The DNA test concludes it is Bryant’s baby.

Pastors should not behave in this manner. The Bible makes it very clear, pastors are in a leadership position and must set a good example. Bryant has admitted there is nothing wrong with his ex-wife, who has been devastated by his unfaithful, disloyal behavior. He decided he was going to engage in sexual behavior he knew to be wrong.  At the end of the day, cheating is a choice, not a compulsion. It can be controlled. In life, you either choose to do the right or wrong thing.

It is a matter of concern that Bryant keeps falling into sexual sin while in the pulpit. This is serious. He needs to stop engaging in behavior the Bible deems wrong, as it is not setting a good example. Bryant needs to ask God for forgiveness, turn his life around and stop setting a bad example as a pastor.

No human is perfect, but to keep getting into the same serious spiritual trouble that has torn his family apart, while trying to teach people the right way to live, is a contradiction that will not yield fruitful results. It cannot be, “Do as I say and not as I do.” Bryant needs to pray and seek counseling for his sexual proclivities and redouble his efforts to live a decent life.

Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood Shooter Is A Schizophrenic Man Who Believes He Is A Woman

November 30, 2015

Garrett-Swasey-11-30-15-1

Pastor and police officer Garrett Swasey

44-year-old Christian co-pastor and police officer, Garrett Swasey, was killed after responding to an emergency dispatch call regarding a gun incident at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood Clinic. Garrett was killed by criminally insane gunman, Robert Lewis Dear, who went on a rampage at the abortion clinic. His family and friends have remembered him in press articles as a kind and forgiving man. Dear also killed Iraq war veteran Ke’Arre Stewart, 29 and Jennifer Markovsy, 35. 

I do not agree with abortion, as it goes against my Christian faith. However, trying to stop abortion by murdering others is unlawful, depraved and wrong. Dear’s deeds were not an act of self-defense. His actions were cold-blooded murder committed by a madman in the name of insanity.

As proof of Dear’s deteriorated mental state, he identified himself as a female, transgender, independent liberal on his voter registration card, when he is a clearly a man. Dear has serious mental problems that bear the traits of schizophrenia and were not addressed in time, leading to the terrible shooting at the clinic.

Criminally insane Robert Lewis Dear killed 3 people and injured 9 at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic.

Dear’s conduct again proves there are holes in the national gun check system allowing mentally ill people to purchase weapons. There have been many high profile shootings in America, a number on university campuses, where it was later revealed doctors had declared the shooter mentally ill, but due to a lack of timely and viable methods of connecting medical records with national gun background check systems, many mentally unfit people go under the radar. Not only should they have been denied the right to buy a gun, but institutionalized as well.

America needs gun control. Approximately 30,000 Americans die each year in non-police based shootings. That number is unacceptably high. Productive members of society are being lost to gun violence in acts that are preventable via the proper legislation being enacted and an overhaul of the gun background check system to sync them with medical records of individuals flagged as suffering from mental illness.

All Americans’ medical records would not need to be included in the database. Doctors offices could each be assigned a password protected user name and pin/password that requires medical professionals to refer patients’ names to the database, who meet the mental illness criteria that poses a danger to the public. This is the only viable solution that could decrease the number of gun related fatalities committed by mentally ill people, in the absence of gun control, with the latter being the best option.

Meet the Devout Christian Pastor and Police Officer Who Was One of the Planned Parenthood Shooting Victims

November 30, 2015 – Garrett Swasey, the 44-year-old police officer who was killed last week in a shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic, was a devout Christian co-pastor who “believed in forgiveness” and “was there to save lives,” according to those who knew him.

“He might not be in alignment with [abortion], but he’d be willing to go in and lay down his life for those people, and that’s just the testimony to me of the kind of man that he is,” Hope Chapel co-pastor Scott Dontanville told CNN. “[He was] not just courageous, but Christlike.”

Swasey–a Massachusetts native and former nationally ranked figure skater who grew up skating with Olympic medalist Nancy Kerrigan–had been on the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs police force for six years when he was called to respond to reports of an active shooter at about 11:50 a.m. on Friday.

According to reports, Swasey, a father of two who was married to his wife Rachel for 17 years, raced 10 miles to the clinic after the call came in. He was one of the first responders on the scene…

Ted Cruz Defends Conservative Criticisms of Planned Parenthood After Shooting at Clinic

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, chafing at the suggestion that conservative criticisms of Planned Parenthood might have played a role in the attack at a Colorado clinic on Friday, lashed out on Sunday at the “vicious rhetoric on the left, blaming those who are pro-life.”

Speaking to reporters in Newton, Iowa, Mr. Cruz said “we don’t fully know the motivations of this deranged individual” in the shooting, which killed three people and wounded nine.

Mr. Cruz added, without prompting, that the suspected gunman, Robert L. Dear Jr., was “registered to vote as a woman.” He suggested that there was “very little evidence” tying the shooting to anti-abortion sentiment, a cause frequently invoked by Mr. Cruz and his fellow Republicans in the presidential primary.

When a reporter cited news reports that Mr. Dear had said “no more baby parts” after he was apprehended, Mr. Cruz replied, “Well, it’s also reported that he was registered as an independent and as a woman and a transgender leftist activist.”
Aides to Mr. Cruz said he was not saying with certainty that the gunman was a “transgender leftist activist,” but rather highlighting how little was known about him definitively…

Christian Pastor’s Throat Slit For Refusing To Denounce Jesus As His Students Are Gunned Down In Nigeria

June 30, 2013

Nigeria

A brave Christian pastor in Nigeria was viciously killed by the terrorist group Boko Haram, for refusing to renounce his faith in Jesus Christ. The Islamic fundamentalists stormed his church, while teenage students were taking school exams. According to reports, Boko Haram, a terror group the Nigerian government has denounced, is against “Western education.” As a result, senseless violence ensued, via the terrorists gunning down the unarmed, defenseless young students and killing their pastor.

Populous and oil rich Nigeria is half Christian and half Muslim. Boko Haram, funded by criminal activities forbidden by law, has incited acts of violence against peaceful Christians in Nigeria, leaving 3,000 of our brothers and sisters in the faith dead this year. As Christians we must continually pray for Nigeria and other regions of the world, such as the Middle East, where people of the faith face persecution and death for our peaceful beliefs.

NBA Player Becomes A Preacher

March 31, 2010

 

Wayne Simien

Former Miami Heat basketball player, Wayne Simien, has become a preacher. He became a Christian in 2003. His story is a wonderful one of redemption, after he gave up drugs, alcohol and sexual promiscuity.

Five years from KU, Wayne Simien answers another calling

Posted on Sun, Feb. 28, 2010 11:16 PM – …After he had become a Christian on July 12, 2003, entering his junior year, there were plenty of folks who wanted the old Wayne back. They called him “Big Dub,” and he was once the life of the party.

“As soon as I stopped doing drugs, stopped drinking, stopped treating women badly, stopped playing selfishly on the court, that’s when people were like, ‘Hey Wayne, what’s wrong with you? What’s going on? I’m worried about you,’ ” Simien says. “Now you’re worried about me? After I stopped doing all these things?” …

During that first year in Miami, Simien would meet his wife, Katie, through some mutual friends who shared their beliefs. Wayne and Katie met in August 2005, began dating on New Year’s Eve, became in engaged in February and were married in July. In another statement about the way he was choosing to live, Wayne did not kiss Katie until their wedding day.

“I wasn’t a virgin when I got married,” Simien says, “so it was just another way of wanting to honor my wife, wanting to share that with not only her but also everybody that was at our wedding ceremony.”…

Pastor’s Sex Comment Stirs The Press

 November 30, 2008

 

Ed Young

Ed Young, who is a pastor I’ve seen on television several times over the years, issued a challenge to married couples, during one of his recent sermons, stating they should have sex for seven days to spark the romance in their lives. Who knew this would be so controversial, as it grabbed the attention of the mainstream press nationwide. It was written about in hundreds of publications.

I don’t understand what all the fuss is about regarding his statements. God created sex. It is normal. He made it as a means for married couples to get closer to each other and also for reproduction. The preacher was passing on God’s message from the Bible. However, it shows the inaccurate view the mainstream press has about Christians.

7 Days Of Sex Challenge

 7 straight days of sex. That was the challenge Pastor Ed Young issued to all of the married couples at his Grapevine church. Too taboo, or right on time? Whatever your opinion, this conversation and tonight’s story is strictly for adults. KLTV 7′s Layron Livingston sat down with some local pastors to see if the message could make its way to your church’s pulpit.

“Everybody’s whining about the economy and about the world….let’s move from whining to whoopee!” The message caught some members of Fellowship Church by surprise, and its perking the ears of East Texans.

“Between a married man and a married woman…the more, the better.” …
