Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I remember reviewing the letters of Paul in Bible study. In doing so, I was constantly reminded that one cannot look at Paul without really seeing Jesus’ amazing handiwork. Now you need to know that I think Paul is an awesome person, when it comes to the story of his life. I haven’t found a biography or autobiography of... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Ladies and Gentlemen: Last week the staff of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference held one of the most important meetings we have ever convened. We had intensive discussions and analyses of our work and of the challenges which confront us and our nation, and at the end we made a decision which I wish to announce today. The... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) What is the quality of the man who can recover from a setback with his pride intact? What internal stuff does a man possess that enables him to extract a positive from a negative? Who is the man that knows who he is, what he wants and what path to take to get it? He is a Psalms One Man! His spiritual pedigree is discovered in... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I feel compelled to pay my respect to preacher Billy Graham who went home to Jesus at 99 years old. My 89 year old black dad has been a preacher for over 50 years. Dad told me how much he enjoyed watching people coming down the isles at Billy Graham crusades to receive Jesus. Dad also enjoyed hearing George Beverly Shea singing,... [Read more...]

Christian Followers & Identity Politics Mixing.

Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Though there are notable exceptions, my life experience suggests that people with a lot of power and money have trouble trusting their fate to anything else. Of course, this is what Christ’s encounter with the wealthy ruler (Luke 18:18-23, compare with similar account in Mark 10:17-31)) leads us to expect. He comes to Christ... [Read more...]

President Oprah Would Try To Bamboozle Black Christian Voters.

Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Politics, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) The American Left is giddy about Oprah running for president in 2020. White America naively thought electing a black president would end them being called racist. Obama and his minions used his skin-color as a bludgeon to beat into submission and silence anyone who opposed him behaving as our king; ignoring laws and the Constitution.... [Read more...]

Christian Talk; Did God Choose One Group Of People Over Others And Validate Slavery?

Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Christians often tell me that they’re following the word of God as prescribed in the Bible, and as we all know, they say, the Bible is the word of God. We know that for a fact because the Bible says it’s the word of God in no uncertain terms. . In response, I tell them that they can just call me a mindless heathen and an... [Read more...]

Three Ways Personal Spirituality Benefits Black Men.

Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I often hear people say, “I am more spiritual than religious”. Unfortunately, that saying has reached the level of cliché. ‘Spirituality’ is the profound sense of connection one receives through an interaction with a power greater than us. Religion, conversely, is the belief and worship of a deity, usually expressed... [Read more...]

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) Recently, I received word that a dear ministry colleague had died unexpectedly. He was fifty years old. I had known this young man for many years; he had taken over a ministry that teetered around two hundred members and guided it to mega-church status. He allowed me to stand in his pulpit during the nascent years of my own... [Read more...]

Christianity: Is It Really About God, Or Manipulation And Greed?

January 30, 2018 by  
Filed under Christian Talk, News, Opinion, Weekly Columns

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I give truth and common sense priority over any kind of political or religious ideology, because politics and religion are one and the same, they both deal in manipulating the naïve, gullible and uninformed for money and power. So my one and only philosophy is to follow truth wherever it leads and regardless to whose ox it... [Read more...]
