Six Issues the Black Church Doesn't Care About

by F. L. Anderson

While the black church is still naming and claiming, the Church as a whole is in crisis. While so many black church leaders are focused on personal kingdom building, and too busy competing for numbers and dollars, the vast majority can't hear the knocks at the door. They are asleep. Many are self-absorbed, insecure and drunk on their own vanity.

For the last four years, I have been sharing startling information with black church leaders about the state of the Black church, their response is always the same... nothing. It's sad but true.  There are a lot of issues in the Church as a whole, however, here is the short list of issues the Black Church doesn't seem to care about:

New Year's Commitments, Vows and Resolutions: Three things Believers need to know

by F. L. Anderson

Every year at this time, believers around the country make promises and commitments that go unachieved. They say things like, "This year I'm going to get closer to God", or "I'm going to read the bible more", or "I'm going to change" in some kind of way, then post it on social media for the whole world to see.

Over the years, I've noticed that the one big thing that believers don't set as a goal or ask God for, is a committed spirit.

Did you know that 45% make goals for the new year, but just 8% of people achieve their New Year’s goal? Here is an interesting statistic: 24% never succeed, and fail on their new year's commitments every year. These are the one's who keep doing and saying the same things every year, expecting a different result. Albert Einstein called this - Insanity!

Ten Things to Remember in 2015

by F. L. Anderson

The beginning of a new year is a great time to reset, to start over and do something different. Before you kick off 2015 here are ten things you should remember:
  • You are valuable. In Luke, 15:1-10 There are two key examples that Jesus uses to represent you and me, the sheep, and the coin. People are just as valuable to Him as a sheep and a coin were to the Pharisees.
      
  • "Trouble don't last always." It's funny how we forget this when trouble comes. In 2 Corinthians. 4:8-16 Paul gives us some insight into his troubles and how he dealt with them. It's unfortunate that we often forget these things when we are faced with our own troubles.
