Where Are You In the Bible?

By: Min. Angela Lee Price
Where Are You In the Bible?
Are you in the Bible? If so, where are you? Quickly, can you name three black people in the Bible? When you are in the bible daily, one of the beautiful things that you will discover is that YOU are in it! There is a black presence in the Bible. Exploring the Black presence in the Bible is important today like never before. Many African Americans don’t know the truth of their heritage. They think the Bible is a “white man’s book” due primarily to erroneous all-white depictions of Bible stories in some Bibles, and on television, and our failure to counter those errors with the truth of Scripture.

The Lord says my people perish for lack of knowledge. Far too many African Americans are perishing because they do not know who they are and from whence they came. They don’t know that the origins of civilization began in Africa, that Egypt is in Africa, and that science, geometry, and astronomy originated in Africa. Many people believe Jesus was a white man with blue eyes and long, blond hair. A pervasive lack of knowledge about self, heritage and history, is having an extremely damaging psychological impact upon the psyche of our people.

While the goal should not to romanticize the black presence in the Bible, I believe exploring the black presence in the Word of God to be of paramount importance to the spiritual well being of people of color. It helps us in our quest to grow in spiritual maturity and learn about Jesus. It helps us to better relate to Africans from the Motherland and become more sensitive to the plight of people of African descent. It helps us explain with dignity our heritage to other cultures of the world. Finally, it gives us life more abundantly. Now, where are you?

Post your answers here, or join us on the Jesus Saves Social Network.

Game Sportsmanship: When A Loss Is Really A Win

By: Min. Angela Lee Price
Brandon Flippins, a University of Louisville graduate, honored his bet and donned his stepbrother's University of Kentucky sweatshirt briefly after UL's loss to UK on New Year's eve.
My husband, Bill and I hosted a UL-UK game party on New Year's eve. In Kentucky, everything comes to a screeching hault when these two teams take to the basketball court.  We were excited because it was the first UL-UK basketball game in the new arena, the KFC Yum Center.

My son, Brandon Flippins lost a bet to my stepson, Jonathan Price, and Brandon and had to put on an "ichy" UK sweatshirt! Brandon stated, "I'm going to be a man of my word, and honor our bet even though my team lost."  I was in the background praying for Brandon, "Oh, Lord, have mercy on him!"  Brandon and I are both UL graduates, so putting on anything blue and white is out of the question - smile! 

I believe UL's loss was Brandon's win.  In an era where less and less sportsmanship is being displayed among athletes, and fans, for children to emulate, we need men to be men and show young men how to be good sportsmen.  I appreciate my son taking the "high road" and "manning up," as the fellas say. 

Jonathan and Brandon Lawrence, one of Bill's friends from WLOU Radio, were the only two UK fans in the group. They were great sportsmen in their victory, no extensive showboating and taunting, none of that.   I was proud of them, too. 

Let's step up, athletes, and sports fans and be willing to shake hands at the end of these games and begin to do better by God and by our children.  You can say what you want. Young people are watching what you do, not what you say.  Let's set better examples of Christian maturity and show the world what it means to be followers of Jesus Christ.  That is my prayer for 2011.  What's yours?  View more pictures at
