(ThyBlackMan.com) There is a song by gospel recording artist, J.Moss, which speaks to the testament of being in the favor of GOD. “We Must Praise,” speaks to everyone who has been blessed with the gift of life and talents. If you are in need of a spiritual healing, love, or companionship as an African-American male, GOD has been waiting on you.

Guiding Light

There are over 3.5 million single black mothers in the United States. If you are fatherless, there is always someone to help you through your journey in life:  GOD. — “A wise son make a glad father, but a foolish son is the grief of his mother,” (Proverbs 10:1).

Fellowship

As the saying goes, an idle mind is the devil’s play area. Being around other individuals who are religious can increase your faith and steer you in the right direction. – “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them,” (Ephesians 5:11).

Relationship

There is no better relationship than having one with God first, acknowledging his existence in your life will help your relationships grow. –“For he himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,” (Ephesians 2:14).

Communion

Accepting God as your savior and realizing that to know him— you must commune with him on a daily basis is one of the important steps in understanding his grace/mercy.  – “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God,” (Romans 12:2).

Judgment

There is time to do many things on this earth. However, do remember, it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God,” (Romans 14:11).       

–There is no friend like Jesus, to have him, and his father on your team—makes life so much easier. Give in and let him take control over your life. As a black man in America today, you need his mercy/favor. God’s grace, and mercy, endures forever.

    @jDean,

    The reason it works for parolees and drug addicts is because those people have finally realized that there is nothing they can do without God and that nothing they have (materially) validates their lives and that their problems are because of no one else but themselves.

    Those are the three core issues of the Black community and they have poisoned the church with it.
    1) I dont need anybody else…but my government handout
    2) I am somebody because I have lots of material things (jordans/louis V/etc)
    3) Its someone else’s fault that I cant move ahead. Why I cant finish free K-12 public school or attend almost free community college or not get pregnant or not sell drugs or not do drugs or not break the law because the man is holding me down (white man)

    Christ is the cure, but Christ cant help a apathetic, hard hearted people who love materialism and excuses more than they love themselves.
    (ie. Story of the Jews in the old Testament)

    P.S. White people didnt give you Christ. You learned about him as people was purposely misusing his message to achieve their own selfish desires…yeah they will be dealt with. And so will those, having access to accurate knowledge, but choose to accept the deception as an excuse not to be believe.

    I wear belts, even though I might have been abused by them growing up, because I know it wasnt the belt doing the abusing but the person misusing it to hurt me.

    We are such slaves to this Jesus /Religion Complex. The last thing black men need is religion. It might be good for recovering addicts or parolees, but that’s about it. Black nations have been conquered in the name of religion. What grand change has the church brought to our community? Nothing. We are still struggling as a race because black women like you love Jesus more than your man. This article’s whole premise is wrong. Anything the white man gives me as my enemy is the enemy to me and my race. Shame on you Kimberly.

  3. Well said…great article!

    This is so typical within our black american culture: a woman giving spiritual advice or spiritual leadership for our black men. WE men need to lead spiritually within our communities. I do appreciate the article though!
