WATCH: Jamie Foxx Blasphemes God and the Lord Jesus Christ by Calling Barack Obama "Our Lord and Saviour"; Even If he Was Joking, This Is Really Stupid and Blasphemous - BCNN1

Do you think Jamie Foxx committed the unpardonable sin or is this much to do about nothing? I watched the Soul Train Music Awards last night and really enjoyed it. There were statements made throughout the show celebrating President Obama's re-election to a second term.....and? Why would anyone be surprised by this since roughly 90% of African Americans supported President Obama's re-election?  Jamie said "First giving honor to God, and to our Lord and Savior Barak Obama...." Jamie Foxx is a comedian. He makes people laugh for a living. His job is to say silly stuff. On ocassion, Jamie goes over the top. It may have been in poor taste, but you have to take what he said with a grain of salt.

Show Some Love for "The Least of These" With Blessings In A Basket!

"For I was an hungered, and you gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick or in prison, and come unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto youm Inasmuch as y have done it to the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me"

"Blessings In A Basket" is our missions initiative to provide personal toiletries and supplies to "the least of these," the homeless, the unemployed, the elderly, and to disadvantaged people in Louisville and Southern Indiana.

This is the fourth year for this initiative. Our goal this year is to distribute 50 baskets to shelters, transitional homes, nursing homes, and to individuals for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Generally, our baskets contain a Christian t-shirt, toiletries (and/or undergarments) tioletries including shower gel, perfumed body spray, and lotions, a Christian novelty gift, a New Testament Bible, Memory Cross Card with A, B, C's of Salvation, Jesus Saves Newsletter, and candy. Matthew 25:35-40.

Prayerfully consider making a donation in any amount to help us get out as many baskets as possible before Thanksgiving!

Can you donate some "blessings" for our baskets, or volunteer a couple of hours one weekend to help assemble baskets? If so, contact Min. Angela Lee Price by e-mail or phone 502-415-1001.

New Report says the Systematic Incarceration of Black Males Is a Wrong, Expensive Path - BCNN1

(BCNN) Mental health experts from Meharry Medical College School of Medicine have released the first comprehensive report on the correlation between the incarceration of African American males and substance abuse and other health problems in the United States. Published in Frontiers in Psychology on the 12th of November, the report looks at decades of data concerning the African American population rates of incarceration and subsequent health issues. The authors conclude that the moral and economic costs of current racial disparities in the judicial system are fundamentally avoidable, especially if more resources are spent on education and treatment.
Money would be better spent on treatment than on incarceration

The study highlights the fact that with regard to African American males in the prison system, individual States are paying more to lock up non-violent offenders than they are for education, since 60% of incarcerations are due to non-violent, illicit drug-related crimes. The authors also point to a previous study from 2,000 showing that the total cost of substance abuse--be it incarceration, crime or treatment--is over $500 billion per year for the US.
These and other statistics have led the authors--scientific experts often called upon to testify in court--to conclude in the paper that: "Spending money on prevention and intervention of substance abuse treatment programs will yield better results than spending on correctional facilities." (More)

God's Heavenly Ultrasounds

There was a lot of discussion about women's reproductive rights and mandatory ultrasounds in the presidential election. Biblically speaking, I did not see evidence in Scripture for "mandatory" ultrasounds while working on this post. God decided to give us a "glimpse" at pre-natal activity in only a few rare occasions to underscore, I believe, His Sovereign Will for honoring the sanctity of life.

I love the Bible. Modern technology has nothing on it. Pregnant women often have ultrasounds in order to look at their babies while they are in the womb. Ultrasounds help determine the sex of the baby and can detect abnormalities or irregularities before the baby is born. Many people celebrate this technological advancement if for no other reason than it helps alleviate the uncertainty at baby showers of what to get the expectant mother. What was thought of as a medical breakthrough some forty years ago was nothing new to God. God's heavenly ultrasounds are in the Bible! The prophet Isaiah said, "Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations: Before I was born the LORD called me; from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name" (Isaiah 49:1). The psalmist said,"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb" (Psalm 139:13).
Two stories in the Bible come to mind of God's heavenly ultrasounds, a look at the prenatal activity of unborn babies in the womb. The first biblical account is of Rebekah's pregnancy with fraternal twins, Jacob and Esau. Genesis 25:22-ff states the babies "jostled" each other within her (NIV), and King James states they "struggled together within her." When Rebekah inquired of the Lord as to what all the comotion was about, He told her "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger." (NIV). The details of the pre-natal events suggest, for the sake of this narrative, how important these little lives already were not only to their mother and father but also to God in fulfilling His purpose. And on the day of their births, the Bible says, Jacob came out "grasping Esau's heel."
The story of Mary's visit with her cousin Elizabeth suggests the importance of pre-natal life, and gives a glimpse at John the Baptist before His birth. We often focus on Elizabeth being filled with the Holy Spirit and what she said about Mary being blessed among women and the fruit of her womb being blessed. We gloss over what she says about her own baby John. Elizabeth told Mary "As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy" (Luke 1:44). What is important here is that both mother and baby responded to Mary's voice. At the sound of Mary's voice, baby John, "leaped for joy." The bible says we can know the tree by the fruit it bears. (Matt. 12:33). The fruit of Elizabeth's womb contained the future heralder of the coming King, and in the presence of God, the unborn Savior of the world (pre-natal, don't miss that, yet God), baby John received through the Holy Spirit on the job training as he leaps, not for fear or trepidation, but for joy! And Elizabeth was six months pregnant at the time. Moreover, the angel of the Lord had previously appeared to Zechariah, told him his prayer for a child had been heard, what sex the baby would be, what to name the baby, that he was never to have strong drink, and finally the angel said, "he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth" (Luke 1:11-15 NIV).

These stories are God's heavenly ultrasounds. Certainly God's explanation to Rebekah helped bring clarity and calmness to her spirit. She learned she was pregnant not with one superly overactive large baby, but with twins. She learned their sex, and sometime important about their destinies. John says this about himself as an adult near the end of his ministry of repentance and baptism, "The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. He (Jesus) must become greater. I must become less" (John 3:29-30). We know John was joyful before birth and he was joyful at the end of his ministry.
These "heavenly ultrasouds" teach us that all human life should be valued and appreciated. Children are to be reared in the love and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). God has a plan and purpose for their lives, that is to bring glory and honor to Him (Ephesians 3:20-21). Jesus saves!

A Prayer for the Election/Get Out to Vote - November 2nd

A Prayer for the Election/Get Out to Vote - November 2nd
By: Rev. Michael Lee, Joshua Tabernacle Baptist Church, Louisville, KY
Heavenly Father, we thank you for all of the grace and mercy you have bestowed upon us. We thank you for allowing us to live in one of the greatest nations in history at one of the greatest times in history. We understand the awesome responsibility that you have given us to elect our own leaders. Oh Father, we pray that as we approach that day when we elect the individuals who will head this great nation for the next four years, that you will guide us with your divine insight and wisdom to choose those leaders who are after your own heart. Help us to choose leaders who will govern according to your will and way. Oh Lord, please bless each of the candidates and guide our chosen leaders by your divine providence. Empower them with hearts for all of the people, especially those who are downtrodden and forgotten, locked up and locked out, and for the defenseless.
Oh Lord, indeed you have given us an awesome responsibility, so I beseech you to help us to move out in mass as a mighty army inspired by you to every polling place come rain or shine. Mobilize us, Oh God as one body acting in unison to bring about your divine will in this country. We humbly place ourselves into your hands knowing that no matter who becomes President that Jesus is still on the throne and your will will be done. It is in the matchless and marvelous name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
