Snoop Dogg recently shared in a radio interview that he plans to release a Gospel music album. That is right. Snoop Dogg, the infamous Gangster rapper, whose dabbled in Reggae (Rasta Snoop) is now turning to Gospel music.

In his interview, he explains that he has been in conversations with singer Faith Evans about this project. He declares it has been in his heart to do gospel album for a long time. 

What will a Snoop Gospel album sound like and will HipHop fans buy the music? Will Snoop get a warm welcome from Christian and Gospel music faithful fans let alone church attendees? 

One thing is for sure. As he says it has been in his heart to do such a project, I can only imagine God is working on him internally. What do you think?

How Do You Start Your Day?

3 May 2017

I was told by an elder to start my day with the Lord. Yet over these last few months, I have been struggling with reading my Bible. I have various apps on my mobile phone, books, study aids and Bibles, Yet I am finding it harder and harder to set aside time that I require to spend time with the Lord.

I came across this image from Youversion one of my favourite Bible apps. I normally have an active reading plan in place. I am trying to focus but I am struggling. Even in my downtime I feel like my mind has to be occupied and that I need to use up as much time I have to try achieve goals. Yet I spend so much time thinking about it, it does not produce the fruits I want. I feel a part of this lull is because I feel I should have be grown spiritually a lot more by now. 

With all that being said. I aim to set aside more time to read my Bible, watch videos, and study the Word. I am into theological studies at the moment. Having travelled through historical church history I have a better understanding of many things such as why Christians celebrate on certain days and how agreements came to pass on the trinity and divinity of Christ. Also how multi-racial the Bible actually is. 

What do you do to get back your spiritual spark? How do you get back to that place of reading, seeking, learning and growing faithfully daily. How do you get into that routine of starting each day with the Lord? Do you have to be sat down? Will an audio book do? Let me know how you start your day with the Lord.

He is Risen!

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, (Matthew 28:5-6 ESV)

Songs of Praised Outsourced!

12 March 2017

Songs of Praise will now be produced outside of the BBC studios. It has been produced by the BBC since 1961. The BBC under a new due process had to put in a pitch for its own tv shows that it has faithfully produced for years alongside other production houses. Two independent companies won the rights to produce the show. 

Church leaders are concerned about this change. Will the companies keep the ethos of the show or will it lose its religious authenticity that the nation has come to love? We shall see.

Happy Valentine's Day?

14 February 2017

So Valentine's day has become a day where people who love each other tell people so. Gifts are bought and egos are inflated. However, what is the meaning of true love?

God is the meaning of true love. He gave His only begotten son up for sacrifice so that we may live eternally. All we have to do is yes to Christ and pick up our cross. So confess with your mouth and in your heart that Jesus is Lord, aspire to sin no more and allow God to bless you in ways you cannot imagine.

God is the essence of true love. So don't worry if you are unable to join in the commercial materialistic side of love. True love cannot be found in such things.

God is love 

R.I.P. Bishop Eddie Long

15 January 2017

Bishop Eddie Long, the senior pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church passed away on 15th January 2017 after a private battle with cancer at the age of 63.

Eddie Long a much-respected Pastor who clearly had an anointing on his life, was plagued with rumours and lawsuits over the past years. After a season out of the public eye, Eddie re-emerged looking clearly slimmer and somewhat frail than his usual stature. He has now gone to be with the KIng.

He is survived by his wife Vanessa and their children. 

Condolences to his family and his church.

Rest In Peace Bishop.
