Six Police Officers were charged several days ago for the death of Freddie Gray. What is next?
Our prayers go out to the family of Freddie Gray. We know ultimately his death was unwarranted and unfortunate. He did not need to die at all!
First of all, we know that the answer is always JESUS and then comes the practical methods to building a positive society. With all the publicity the churches and Jamal Bryant is receiving, very seldom, if at all was the name of Jesus suggested or proclaimed the answer for the issues Baltimore is having. Jesus is the number one problem solver. As dynamic of a teacher Jesus was, his message of right and wrong is very simple:
Matthew 7:12 “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.
I’m sure those rioters would not want anyone destroying their property.
This was the only time I’ve heard someone emphatically push JESUS during these riots and Jamal Bryant doesn’t look too enthused. But why not?
Why is it that all of the preachers that were on, were just talking about their church and leading a civilized march, etc.. blah blah blah. Seriously folks, the Churches are blending more and more with the world and slowly becoming unfruitful to face demonic forces. That is ultimately what we face. Our battle is mostly spiritual but we focus too much on the natural.
Ephesians 6:10-12 10 Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
But folks, this will not solve the problem. How about we teach our children to not be in a position to have encounters with the Police?
13 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. 4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. 5 So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.
With a City predominately black, with mostly black leadership should not have the 5th highest murder rate in the Country. We rave and celebrate pain more than what’s right. What about the 50% of blacks compared to the rest of Baltimore’s populations have never been married according to the US Census Bureau. No one is protesting that!
Folks, the very machine black leaders claim to be fighting they join. Margaret Sanger who is by far the most successful eugenicist because of her genius plan for exterminating the black people via birth control is winning. If she were alive, I’m sure she’d be elated that Baltimore’s marriages and murder rates fulfills her extermination plan. What better way to destroy family and a race of people? Destroy the home, get everyone on birth control, and make a society dependent on government.
Ya’ll we are missing the point. We use all of our energy and efforts to encourage dumb stuff. Burning down a CVS and local businesses is dumb. There is no justification in that. Thugs do that!

That is Thug Activity, but our Leaders don’t think so. Why not? Check out this Video:

It appears that we defend our color as a people more than fighting for our God, that saved us from our sins. We should always strive to represent Jesus first rather than ourselves.
6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
