Writers Note: We bear witness that the False Prophets bring dis-credit to the Godly Black Preachers. We pray that the Godly Black Preachers will continue to stand for God. We also pray that the ungodly Black Preachers will come to the knowledge of God before it is too late.
What is most important for a Black Preacher?
1. A man called by God and one who follows God.
2. A man who has obtained advanced degrees in Theology.

THE WORLD SATAN AND THE BLACK CHURCH
Part 5: Old Con Games, New Con
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
The FreedomJournal is a servant and
vessel for Almighty God. As we walk in the Spirit, we bear witness that we have
come to glorify God. We do not come for fame, prestige, honors and material
wealth. Thus our mission of popularity is with God and not man. God has all
power and God is who we serve.
As we seek to further develop our
topic on the world and Satan in the Black church we will now take a brief look
at measures of exploitation in the church. What was the historic defilement of
the church? Also, is there a historical record of precedents for exploitation
in the church?
E. Franklin Frazier in his brilliant
research, "The Negro Church In America,” gives us several statements that
can apply to our particular topic. Previously we noted that there was
opposition to the slaves worshiping because of the precedents laid down by
those who led slave revolts. However, Frazier brings in another dynamic.
"The whites were always on guard
against African religious practices which could provide an opportunity for
slave revolts, and they outlawed such practices. They sought to bring the
slaves under the influence of Christianity. This was accomplished in part by
acquainting the slaves with the Bible."
We eventually see arguments for and against allowing the slaves to enter Christianity. We also see arguments for and against the slaves being exposed to the Bible. These arguments related to the fear of teaching the slaves the Bible and the laws against teaching slaves to read and write. They
also feared that the slaves would
find in the Bible the notion of human equality. Frazier notes the following:
"Opposition to teaching the
Negro the Bible declined as masters became convinced that sufficient
justification for slavery could be found in the New Testament. Some masters
also became convinced that some of their best slaves were those who could read
Therefore it is logical to conclude
that the old con games of Christian exploitation were based on lies. The record
shows though at this time that a litany of lies were used to control and
economically exploit the labor power of slaves. From our analysis economics
still motivates the lies, con games and methods of exploitation. Did lies of
manipulation and economic exploitation from the slave masters have an affect on
Preachers that have allowed the world into the church? Did the slave Preachers
and the early Black Preachers establish the precedents for the con games of
lies? Also, did these falsehoods render a system of selfish materialism by
ungodly Preachers? Also did this system financed by poor Black congregations
become confused regarding the balance between the support of the Preacher, the
church and God's kingdom.
Black people were poor during the
early days of the Black church. However, many Black Preachers became influenced
by an attitude very similar to street hustlers and Pimps. We argue that
smooth-talking Devils who had a gift for lies and deceptions exploited the
illiterate and semi- illiterate people in the Black community. As slick con men
of the old school, these False Prophets sold prayer cloths, the blood of Jesus
and dispensed lottery numbers to confused Black people who possessed natural
spiritual inclinations. The contemporary period has produced a new cadre of
Devilish False Prophets. This group of Hell bent Demons are more sophisticated,
polished and often well educated. For the record, are schools of Theology
proving grounds for Preachers to glorify man and not God?
The New Con Games of deceptions and
lies have a basic tenet noted in all aspects of the Confidence Game. Here we
find that winning the trust of the person you are "playing on" is the
most important objective of all Con men and women. The so-called Preachers have
an advantage because most people that come to church realize a certain
responsibility and loyalty to their faith, the Preacher and the church.
The low-down Devil sent Preacher
takes advantage of the love and respect Black people have for God and God's
messengers. Thus they manipulate these gullible people to follow them and not
God. Thus, establishing blind obedience to them as their father and not God the
father. (May God have mercy on the lost souls who commit these acts of
blasphemy and shame)?
Meanwhile we see that the result of
blind obedience and winning the trust of the people is to: "Get
Paid." There are also some clear examples of how many of these sinful
creatures carry out these crimes against God and the church.
One very prominent example of the confidence game by False Prophets is found in the lies of the Prosperity Ministries. In our previous article in this series we noted several points on the lies of
so-called Prosperity Ministers.
Prosperity Ministries have taken root in the so-called Black middle-class who
often think they can pay their way to Peace and Paradise. Materialism drives
many Blacks in the so-called Black middle-class. Thus, the great tricks of
Prosperity Ministries are planted in fertile ground among people that have
embraced money as their little god. Nonetheless, we will move the discussion
onto other approaches that False Prophets use to carry out their missions of
sin and blasphemy.
The contemporary False Prophets have
an open door policy with the world, Satan and the result is sin and more sin.
The False Prophets of today's church allow anything in the world into their
churches, if they pay. Thus, they allow homosexuals, lesbians, criminals and
every other low life creature in the church without question. God' house is a
place for all sinners to come for forgiveness and help with their problems.
God's house is not a place for practicing criminals, and homosexuals to come to
congregate and socialize. God is love and this love extends to all of his
people but, He does not love sin.
The Bible teaches the Christians to
love all people but the Bible does not teach Christians to love sin. However,
the false prophets don't care about sin, they only care about money. Thus, with
an open door policy they attempt to redefine the church. Therefore, the
submission to God is not important to these Devils. If you have money and are
willing to give to the Preacher to further maintain his lavish life-style they
allow you to enter and receive the earthly blessings of a Devil sent Preacher.
