Right Now I Am MULTI-TASKING So I Am Listening To A Line Up Of "Black YouTube" videoes in the background.
I do not follow Dr Juanita Bynum with any sort of frequency.
I should also note that I still have a video from her on "Save Until I Delete" on my DVR because in that particular case she was insightful.
I say that to say that I have nothing against Dr Bynum.
BUT IN THIS CASE she DRESSED UP a faulty set of LOGIC AND REASONING with enough FRILLS that most people would be deceived into believing that HER FOUNDATION IS SOUND.
On The Matter of "Kim Burrell Calling Out THE GAYS": FROM MY OWN WORDS - Kim Burrell took the wrong approach in condemning a whole class of people the way that she did. (note: Ms Burrell also says that there was a longer segment of her sermon that more clearly articulated her view - when viewed in its entirety).
Dr Bynum RIGHTFULLY makes the case: "Your PRESENTATION of 'The Truth' to a person" communicates your love for and your intentions to TRANSFORM that person (by "Savior").
From Dr Bynum's narrative - who would logically disagree with her on the above points.
However after listening to her arguments on the "Presence Of Homosexuals In The Church" and the need for 'Christian Outreach" Dr Bynum is the one who need to have the FRILLS stripped off of her dress up - though lovingly.
As I noted in my previous posts: It is FOLLY to believe that you are going to compel a consenting adult to change their behavior BECAUSE you tell them "The Bible Says Otherwise". Most people who have a GOD beyond "THE GOD" will find another bible verse to counter you. (Again - these other Gods are RACE, SEXUALITY, POLITICAL IDEOLOGY, NATIONALISM and others - so I AM NOT PICKING ON 'THE GAYS". The "Black Liberation Theology" is just as fraudulent as "White Nationalism" and "Christian Gay Advocacy" - because they ALL tie their WORLDLY INTERESTS as an inseparable twin to their RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. When "God" and their "Special Interest" are ever placed into contention - THEIR GOD will always agree to COMPROMISE THEMSELVES.
Dr Bynum makes the case that as a "Christian" - the goal is to MEET PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE and guide them to belief and worship of GOD - casting aside MENIAL DIFFERENCES.
Again - if you look at my posts on the "Kim Burrell Controversy" you will see that the "GAY ACTIVISTS" have NO INTENTION of "REACHING OUT TO A 'SINNER' NAMED 'KIM BURRELL' AND BRINGING HER ALONG". The most vile, hateful, (if they were White and said it about her) "racist" and contemptful things were said about Kim Burrell - yet, for some strange reason "The Gay Activists In The Church" are treated as "A Hive Of Hornets" who are tired of being ATTACKED - NO HINT of expectations of civility and decorum inside of the SCARED GROUND called "The Body Of The Church".
So again - Do not be fooled by Dr Bynum's attempt at diplomacy.
Also YOUR GOAL cannot be "TRANSFORMING GAYS TO STRAIGHT" any more than you can "MAKE A WHORISH MAN AGREE TO STOP 'JUMP'IN OFF" ...because the BIBLE SAYS SO.
THE CONNECTING PURPOSE - that the entire church body MUST SUBMIT TO - is NOT JUST "Vocalized", "Sung", " Danced To" or "Donated Affirmations" of SALVATION! I recently saw a "GOSPEL PERFORMANCE' that was FULL OF EMOTION - but lack of SUBSTANCE - despite the crowd pleasing response to the news that "GOD WILL PROVIDE FOR YOU".
THE CONDITION OF THE NETWORK OF PEOPLE VIA THEIR INSTITUTIONS is the best way to PROVE that the 'INVISIBLE GOD' has 'SAVED FOLLOWERS'. Are these INSTITUTIONS transforming THE PEOPLE into a form where they are GENERATING PROSPERITY IN THE FORM OF STABILITY (not so called "Prosperity Preaching" via money and material things - VALUATION OF THE PEOPLE to the point where you REPLICATE these valuations through the generations).
The voices that want the MAN MADE CHURCH to submit to the POPULAR WHIMS of the MASSES. These masses that are bombarded with PROPAGANDA, CONSUMERISM and SELF-INDULGENCE inside of their CONTAINER - can all at once be "THE LEAST OF THESE", claim to CARE FOR "THE LEAST OF THESE" via their POLITICAL RELIGIOUS ACTIVISM ....inside of their CONTAINER......yet MOST DAMNING OF ALL, however, is when you REMOVE THEIR CONTAINER and have them to look OUTSIDE - despite the abundance of THE LEAST OF THESE PEOPLE who they purposely ignored - THE TRUTH IS: Their GOD informs them to manifest their CHRISTIAN WALK among people whom always seem to be within the container of their POLITICAL/MAN-MADE BOUNDARIES as as they VOTE FOR THEIR SALVATION and FIGHT THE DEVIL who is on the other side of the LEGISLATURE - the TRUTH IS EXPOSED:
WHERE THERE IS NO 'CONTAINERIZED CURRENCY' to transact (THE VOTE and the US DOLLAR) and they are STRIPPED NAKED with only their IDOL WORSHIPING GOD ATTRIBUTES............
Dr Bynum I CHALLENGE YOU: Let's move past "Kim Burrell" and tell me WHEN IS THE TIME that you would confront that PREACHER DRESSED IN WOMAN'S CLOTHING? You said that GOD will tell you the TIME IN YOUR SPIRIT ...............I want you to produce past transcripts of when GOD TALKED TO YOU about important matters - in order to determine if they were mere POINTS OF OPPORTUNISM or was it INFORMED GUIDANCE based upon the FORESEEING OF A MAJOR CRISIS , whose intent is to ATTACK ALL POINTS of CONTESTATION to ANY POINT OF THEIR 'LIFESTYLE' be it Race, Sexuality or Ideologically driven?
Do you not see your INTELLECTUAL COWARDICE?
If you DO NEED TO INFORM A PERSON ABOUT A NEEDED CORRECTION - that PERSON needs to "OPEN" to "CORRECTABILITY IN THE FIRST PLACE"!!!!!!!!!
If this is not the case - WHAT GOOD is the information in "A BOX OF ROSES" or "TIED TO A BRICK AND THROWN THROUGH THEIR WINDOW"?
With you using your Logical Contortions to DELAY the inevitable confrontation - IT IS YOU who need someone to come to you with a polite tap on the shoulder with some corrective behavior because 'THEIR GOD' inspired them to APPROACH YOU.
