So, Creflo Dollar is finally getting the $65 million jet, after all. For a while, believers have been divided over the issue. Some claim it is his covenant right to walk in wealth others claim it is basic textbook scamming. At the heart of this argument is people who are poor and suffering.

Giving to Creflo Dollar is seeding expecting a reward from God, they claim. After all, the Atlanta based pastor will use the jet for ministering to the suffering. Remember what happened to Dr. Myles Munroe, you would not want another pastor to suffer the same fate. They argue.

Robbing $300 from people with no solid income is ruthless and disgusting, others counter. Creflo Dollar drives hip hop music video cars and lives in a mansion like a tech mogul while his followers languish in poverty…

Your Sunday Bread: Sexless Love

11392937_1000276093318354_7939337952893540428_nHaving sex is not love. Generally men may think this way, and women think giving sex is love. However, one cannot place a measurement there to say that sex is love, and one should ask when did the Most High say that sex is love?

In this, one should think that seeking sex is seeking love in the wrong place. People love sex, but sex does not seek love that lasts. Hence, one should see that though sex is good it is not love, because when we love a person we may give sex freely; however, in that same note withhold it when we do not love any longer.

Sex is not love then, because love does not fail us when sex is no more, and love is withstanding when sex is not available

. Love suffers, and sex finds another option. Therefore, sex fails when love does not. It is the case, that without love we have nothing but sex which produces babies to love and to recreate love in itself, but since love is not sex–loveless sex can walk away.

Ladies and Gentlemen love is sexless which says that ultimately one must find the realm of making love not sex.

Your Sunday Bread: When the Other Woman is His Mother

I want to talk to all the women out there dealing with the [other] woman. His mother.

I was very dismayed to find one day after being single, and mothering my children alone that the man of my dream came waltzing into my life without me going looking for a man. I had become settled and had resigned myself to doing me. I was in a good place in my mind, though I still had problems to iron out I was in a good place.

This man comes along and we get alone, months passed and we became close. I would love to tell you that this is a fairy tale ending type thing, but that would be too easy. So instead, I will tell you that I have had to contend with my husbands ideal woman, but its not me —she’s his mother. Except, his ideal and my real deal have been separate though not at first. At first, I think that I was much like she was. No, for him I was someone that he could mold into a project, and for a while that probably went well for him.

You see Ladies, I was weak. Hence, his ideal woman is a weak woman—just like his mother. This is not a laughing matter, its serious.

Ladies, we should not be of the mind that we have no say. Never, allow a man to take you away from your role as his wife and mother, and manager of your home. It is the case, that many women have chosen to leave their children and their homes to go to work–while—he stays home and though some dads are good in this manner, others leave the children to fiend for themselves. Hence, no one to raise the children. I didn’t do that, his mother did. Hence, I have had to stand up for my rights as a mother and a wife.

I was really angry when I found out that his ideal was unreal, and at one point I bought into it, that is, until the Most High opened my eyes. I understand that many of us work because we want a bunch of nothingness….stuff, and our children suffer for that. I also understand there are many women raising children alone, and say Yah bless you beloved. However, we all have one thing in common and that is finding strength in Yah to stand up and take our place, not as being mother and father, but decidedly what is more important is being a mother; especially when a husband can provide.

Provide he should, and with a strong woman who knows here place he will. I want to tell you that I have no problem with my man going to work. He does, however, his mother’s life and mine are separate.

Ladies, his mother and the two shall become one flesh do not mix, and neither is she part of cleaving. It is the case, that the other woman is not here any more, however, her influence still is. In which, it serves to tell you Ladies that if we are not doing a good job our sons wife will know it.

Scripture says, that a wife should respect her husband unto Yahuah. Then ask, does Yah really want me to leave my children? No, he doesn’t and neither should your man.

Today: I pray for righteous motives to abound in every home as unto Yah. Father, we thank you that these women’s husbands and their children will rise up and call them blessed, because she will be capable (Proverbs 31) of handling every situation to come her way. We pray for the children who will grow up trained well to know your Way

In Support of Baltimore: Or; Smashing Police Cars Is Logical Political Strategy

As a nation, we fail to comprehend Black political strategy in much the same way we fail to recognize the value of Black life.

We see ghettos and crime and absent parents where we should see communities actively struggling against mental health crises and premeditated economic exploitation. And when we see police cars being smashed and corporate property being destroyed, we should see reasonable responses to generations of extreme state violence, and logical decisions about what kind of actions yield the desired political results.

I’m overwhelmed by the pervasive slandering of protesters in Baltimore this weekend for not remaining peaceful. The bad-apple rhetoric would have us believe that most Baltimore protesters are demonstrating the right way—as is their constitutional right—and only a few are disrupting the peace, giving the movement a bad name.

This spin should be…

Regulatory Measures

images (4)Corporate industry and big business in the United States has always been a problem, has seen a great many troubles when it comes to keeping good books. It is the case, that companies should hire honest, forthright people who for whatever reason would want to keep themselves safe from fines and prison sentences.

However, not all are that way, and for the person who makes merely a check to get by these type practices can be seen as thuggish being done not as like the common man’s need of desperation, but out of a persona of greed and lustful living which does not work well when there are many stakeholders. In this instance, identifying who the stakeholders are is of utmost importance, because as mentioned in another article the stakeholder is anyone who invests their money; whether it be the mother buying shoes, the family investing in a burial policy, the clerk who rings up a purchase, or the waiter who handles a dinner order. Therefore there is more at stake than someone losing their money in a shady business deal, or rather, someone padding their expenses. In this article, there is protection presented for the corporate industry which spells out policy for accounting practice requirement, and consumer protection.

The propensity for people to cheat is a common among the American people. As stated, earlier whether with much money, or lack thereof people manipulate their financial records. One can be seen on annual income tax returns where people lie about how much money they make to either avoid paying taxes, or to gain an incentive such as Earned Income Credit [EIC]. In this instance, business owners might be tempted to be dishonest about how much money they make and for this cause, specifically for larger corporations there must be policy placed to help level the fields when lower taxed payers seemingly battle other industry giants who escape to other countries hiding their increases. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act [SOX] was created in the year 2002, and is a mandatory law which corporations must comply with whether or not the organization is a large or small entity.The policy was named for two senators who promoted the act regulating the financial practices of corporations.

There are several sections to mention here. They are: 302, 401, 404,409, 802, and 906, however, there is discussion of one Title 302 which speaks of the Corporate Responsibility for Financial Reports [A Guide to Sarbanes-Oxley: Section 302]. Such is the case of a situation leading up to SOX where “multiple publicly-traded businesses jacked up their stock prices by “publishing false or deceptive financial statements” (Hooper, 2010). Hence, as result the value of the stock market program dropped $6 million according to Charles Hooper  who wrote the article “Why Was the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 Created and How Does It Impact Financial Reporting Today?” In essence, some firms decidedly become more engrossed with tweaking their numbers in stock than preferring honest business merits.

According to the same article, Hooper (2010) stated that SOX impacted the mainstream of corporate firms in their correcting their requirements of company accounting policy, and within its umbrella the establishment of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Bureau [PCAOB], a non-profit entity, and one that requires accounting firms to be registered making reporting unregistered company public trade illegal. In an effort to bring example, the Waste Management Systems (1998), located in Houston, Texas was a company that decided that padding their account to make their stock go up was worth the fall. Reportedly, the company’s accounting department recorded “$1.7 billion in bogus increase.

Apparently, some of the top executives, along with their auditing team decided among themselves that they, according to “The Worst Accounting Scandals of All Time,” giving information about depreciation and length of time for their property, machinery and their plant. As is always to case, the scheme came unglued when a new management team took over, and the penalties that pursued their wayward acts amounted to $7 million in fines [Accounting Degree Scandals, 2015]. Of  course there were more scandals, such and Enron where people actually were tried and sent to prison and some others with faulty books. Consequently, the report stated that it was WorldCom that was the spark that started the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

With all the drama surrounding corporate crooks and dishonest practices in high places one has to wonder is there any hope for the little people who do business and who make the money that fuel those big business honchoes in high place, and the answer is a resounding yes there is a way to handle the big dogs. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a place that can help sort things out for the people.

They wrote:
Our mission is to make markets for consumer financial products and services work for
Americans — whether they are applying for a mortgage, choosing among credit cards, or
using any number of other consumer financial products [CDPB, 2015].

In essence, there is a place to file complaints concerning products, services such as credit discrimination, college funding, seeking loans, mortgage lending practices which is well worth the time to seek guidance. Notably, some reasons of why this policy may have been set forth is the area of discriminatory practice in credit where bankers would not loan blacks money for to buy a home, and one big scandal where Bank of America was caught charging higher interest rates to blacks than whites in regards to credit.

Ultimately, the policy set in place by Sarbanes-Oxley; along with the protective measures for consumers is spot on. In saying that these policies are right one must have the ability to know what is right and wrong in life and then move on to business—it is all about the stakeholder, not merely those who seeming hold the stakes as in monetary additions to make a company work but those who show up to work; and, those who spend. In this, the gathering is true that the stakeholder position of the corporate industry is collective. That means families, that means investors, their employees and those who make stock purchases raise. People have a right to know what their investments are doing in trade, and, it is the case that one cannot be certain that measures are being adhered to. Hence, accounting practices whether for the large business or the small is everyone’s business.

Your Sunday Bread: So who are we under the influence of if not of the Set Apart Spirit?

Ruach__haKodesh_by_jpzapata

Everyone is naming and claiming Jesus. Conversely, some say they are saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost. However, we can stop the chatter about this pretty quickly with this verse.

“Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of Elohim says יהושע is a curse, and no one is able to say that יהושע is Master (((except))) by the Set-apart Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 12:3).

I want to tell you because it is impossible that every one can speak by the Set Apart Spirit in the entire world, especially participation in idolatry. Not all are able to say that Yahusha is Master, unless, it has been confirmed in them by the Set Apart Spirit.

I know its disparaging to hear about it, because some of us think that we catch the Holy Ghost Sunday, however, one may agree that with new revelation that spirit is iffy to say the least, because the Ruach speaks truth not lies.

Not saying that the Spirit of Yah is not talking to us, “the called according to His purpose”, however, its highly unlikely that if we are in the church that we would be able to remain there.

For your hearing:

Democracy or Tyranny

blackpanthers

 If you mean the size of the government as in Big Government where there is too much power given to certain facets thereof then I am inclined to agree, because here I must speak out about police brutality and all that occurs because of narcissism turned loose on the public, or rather, a particular portion.

In speaking of so- called ‘freedom’ and ‘liberty’ and ‘justice’ then someone has definitely missed it here.

Let me explain. It is the case, until recently, or rather I will say times past that I used to believe that when I called the police that I was within my rights as a citizen to be protected under the 1st Amendment to the constitution, however that has changed because I no longer trust the government. In saying that I no longer trust the government means that I no longer trust the police, I no longer trust them. Why? According to the amendment supposedly all people have  a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but its not that way because I can’t see that fully for everyone. I don’t trust them, the police, because the entire system is corrupt across the board, racism and harassment, and discrimination and murder. I do not trust them, and then if that were not enough they allowed to claim all- out- war on unarmed people; that is, military gear and all. For what? Strong arming? One has to ask since when does a city or state or country give permission for their enforcement to attack their citizens and then call that behavior a civil society when its barbaric?

David Boaz (1997) wrote:

Unfortunately, most governments fail to live up to Thomas Jefferson’s vision in two ways. First, they don’t do a good job of swiftly and surely apprehending and punishing those who violate our rights. Second, they seek to aggrandize themselves by taking on more and more power, intruding themselves into more aspects of our lives, demanding more of our money, and depriving us of our liberty. (Boaz, 1997).

I am inclined to agree, there is not a job doing anything except casting blame in this area. Most people killed at the hand of some mentally deranged cop are innocent. Oops, but they say the victim brought it on themselves, especially the 12 year old playing with a toy gun. Yes, innocent.

I think government, is overpowering for some citizens [See: Third Ohio Man Wrongly Accused of 1975 Murder Exonerated].

Furthermore, Boaz (1997) stated further “This basic understanding of the distinction between society and the state, between the people and the rulers, has deep roots in Western civilization, going back to Samuel’s warning to the people of Israel that a king would take your sons, and your daughters, and your fields and to the Christian concept that the state is conceived in sin.”  (Boaz, 1997).

I can agree with that, except the Christian part. However, as it stands blacks are still banished to the field and treated lower than low in this country and government is the ring leader of all of it. That’s influence, that’s power! So you don’t like all the help with housing, with food, or living and take it out on us in the street?
