Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……Tonex or BSlade call him what you want. All you can do is stand in awe of this man’s awesome talent, which is without debate. The church especially the so called Black Church is full of a bunch of hypocritical liars. You all make patently of excuses for these low down ass lying sleaze bags you all call your pastors and bishops, but because you have a man that is brave enough to live and walk in his truth you have such a huge problem. Countless times Obnoxious Media have exposed a number of low down men that have molested children to Jamal Harrison Bryant’s bastard son to Brian Carn quoting  a witch word for word and you all still make excues for him. However, all of you sucking dick and eating ass Pineapple Juice Drinkers (Obnoxious term for on the Down Low) have a problem with the incredible performance of Anthony Williams, formaly know as Tonex because he was brave enough to be honest about the very behavior over 80% percent of the men in the Gospel Music Industy activly participate in behind closed doors.
So now you have a problem with his performance just like you have a problem with my blog and calling the fakes and phonies. The church is a joke! If it was Kirk Franklin porn loving ass it would have been okay or Wes Morgan who is an admitted dope addict that had a bastard baby by whore he left his wife for and married it would hve been alright. However, you all get so caught up over a man that is walking in his truth. It was pathetic to see social media go up in a blaze, by a number of people that have made excues for other behaviors and sins that you like.
Hats for to the Prince, Micheal Jackson, with a little of James Brown, of Gospel for his amazing performance. Stop making excuses  for the stuff and people you like and damn others to Hell that openly do things you openly condemn while privately condone and actively participate. In closing he wore a hat inside the church so what when you all have sex and do all kind of things that descrate these so call Houses of God.

Just a few days ago, The Dream Team honored Kurt Carr and Lynette Hawkins-Stephens for their contributions to gospel music. The evenings musical tribute was held at the famed Love Center Ministries (Oakland, CA), and drew artist and peers from around the country to join in the celebration. B. Slade (formerly known as Tonex) is no stranger to the Bay Area, and does not hesitate to show up and support whenever called.
The comments took off like wild-fire as his tribute selection of “There’s A War Going On” for Lynette Hawkins-Stephens began streaming online. The comments picked apart everything from attire, movement on stage, his hat, and even his presence.
He later returned to Love Center the following morning for Sunday service, admitting it was the first time he’s been in Sunday Morning Worship in 7 years.

  1. I think Tonex needs to start spilling names lol let’s see who really ’bout that life.

  2. I must applaud Tonex for walking in his truth. He is more honest than many. A homosexuality lifestyle…well, It’s our choice if we walk with him in his truth.
    Wow….I remember him and his lovely ex- wife together at his private birthday in San Diego, his publicist and I never knew he had a battle within.
    Sir Williams…good point in reference to Wes and Kirk. I did not know about Wes, when I proudly posed with him for a photo while performing in Paris, Fr. I really don’t like men/women who cheat and leave their spouse and marry their lover. The end is never favorable.

  3. I have always respected Tonex aka BSlade not only is he talented he is still annointed I respect him living his truth and being real and transparent much respect to BSlade👊👍.

  4. One problem I see with this. He should have darkened the lights in the audience and had a spotlight on him for affect. He is the next Prince of gospel music.
    His energy (Christians call it the Holy Ghost) is high in that church. It was entertaining for me as well even though I am not a Christian.
    Hold my mule while get up and …………………………………………………………….. Ah shah ahh abahhh !

  5. I love Anthony Williams II aka B-Slade. Dude has a great gift and talent. But I’m more offended by the language and comments used by the “Saints” there’s no love no compassion. This dude lost his mother and father back to back and seems like these so call Christians could care less. Even had one of these Major Minor Off Prophets get on Facebook and talk about him like trash. And he low down down low himself. Do I support his life style if he’s still in it no but I still love him and I’m going to keep praying for him.

  6. Mr O 80%????!!?? WoW!!!!!
    onex is one of my favorite gospel artist!!! I was on a road trip a couple of months ago and I listened to the entire ‘Out The Box’ album!! 13 years later, it’s still phenomenal!! Probable my favorite album of all time!!!! The guy is ultra talented & his voice is damn near angelic!!

  7. Well what exactly is a pineapple drinker? Because on the one hand it seems as if you play out other gay preachers but you seem to be celebrating Tonex walking in his truth. Is it the DL nature or the actually homosexuality?

  8. William, The church is on the inside and what is inside will come out of the mouths of individuals who try to act holy but their speech is the same as the world that person should silence him or herself.

  9. The people are standing there in major conflict. No matter how talented he is they know this is off as it can be.

    • I AGREE WITH YOU 100% TONEX IS NOT ANOINTED. HE LOST THAT WHEN HE WALKED AWAY FROM GOD. REAL SAINTS OF GOD, ARE NOT HOMOSEXUALS. HE OUGHT TO BE ASHAME OF HIMSELF COMING TO GOD’S HOUSE WITH.THIS FOOLISHNESS. LOOSE HERE SATAN. GOD IS GOING TO HAVE A CHURCH, A CLEAN CHIRCH. ALL THIS MESS THEY TRYING TO BRING INTO THE CHURCH WILL BE JUDGED BY GOD HIMSELF. IT’S COMIMG AND GOD IS GOING TO CLEAN HOUSE. THE BLOOD OF
      JESUS.

      • I find it so hilarious how people have SO MUCH to say against this man when you have leaders in the church who are cheating on their wives, running women, making babies out of wedlock and stealing your money and you sit and say, “I won’t put my mouth on the man of gawd.”
        Ya’ll funny.
        You do realize hypocrites go to hell too, right?!
        Jesus gave us a HUGE discourse on this.

      • All i can say is Amen!!!!

  10. I just goggled and listed to his new song ‘Conversation’ & I LOVED IT!!!
    It’ll definitely stir up something!!

  11. Father God help ur people if Tonex aka Bslade want to b gay, that’s his choice but for the saints of God to have him perform at there’s churches they’ve have NO business having Tonex on that platform shaking his Ass like he’s Michael Jackson, What is wrong with this picture? Yes I agree with Blankman, as Christians we sure pray that God saved him and delivered him… But as far as what Ajaveen, said abt him being anointed” I TOTALLY DISAGREE ” there’s a difference between singing & singing under the anointing, there’s NOTHING anointed abt this!!!

  12. First of all he’s not walking in no TRUTH. He’s walking and living a lie. He’s a man that chose the homosexual life. You all sound like a bunch of clowns that chose singing ability over right living. Dont care what the percentage is God has not approved it. So be famous on earth but spend eternity in HELL for LIVING YOUR LIE. ALL OF THEM ARE WRONG WHETHER YOU ARE A PIMP PREACHER THAT GIVING STD OUT LIKE PRAYER CLOTHES, PASTOR/BISHOP THAT BEATS HIS WIFE AND INTIMIDATES THE MEMBERS, TO HOMOSEXUAL THAT CAN SING AGAIN ALL ARE WRONG. EVEN THE WRITER OF THIS BLOG IS A HOMOSEXUAL. ALL GOING TO HELL CALL IT CHURCH FOLKS OR WHATEVER . LOSERS SAY STUPID STUFF.

  13. THE VIDEO IS A JOKE. FOR ALL YOU TALKING ABOUT HE “LIVING HIS TRUTH” BUT HE SINGING A LIE. “WALK RIGHT TALK RIGHT” “I WANT TO LIVE HOLY”??????????
    PLEASE YOU ALL FALL FOR ANYTHING. LMAO WANT TO SING HOLY BUT HAVE SEX WITH ANOTHER MAN. SIT DOWN. SIT

    • Talk JJ!! The most sound thing I’ve seen. The downlow preacher is wrong and the out of the closet singer.

    • YOU BETTER SAY THAT. I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH YOU 100%. HE NEED.TO.HAVE SEVERAL SEATS. QUICKLY AND.REPENT.

      • Really Now? Do kirk Franklin need to repent for STOMP and the other R&B covers over a gospel twist? Kirk do every dance they do in the club now in church. Do Tye Tribitte and Mary Mary need to repent? Reference my comment below.
        Stay woke.

  14. It isn’t amazing what people comment on and who they choose to “cover”. Loved this post Sir William. Regardless of whom B Slade loves, he is still anointed. People need to look up the definition of “anointed”, what it means. The fact that people are so offended by people who keep it “real”, angle me. I’m so glad that I believe in a God who doesn’t look at the outside like “man” does. God looks at the heart, which is right in the good book…look it up saints, well wannabe saints. People love fakeness. Sweep around your own front door condemners. What I find funny is that people actually think their comments on who B Slade is, really matters. Do people truly believe that if they tear someone down or state their opinion on a matter that it will cause someone to change and be who they want them to be? If B Slade is STILL B Slade after years of nasty comments, backlash, and scripture quoting, what is the point of all this? People are stupid. It’s amazing how much energy these people are wasting judging and commenting on something and someone they have absolutely no power or authority to change.
    Sir William, loved this post.

    • You are one deceived individual!! Enough said

      • Like I said, people continue to comment on someone and actually think in their minds what they say or think actually matters to the person they are commenting on. Not so deceived that you felt the need to comment on what I wrote. Point is, if you don’t like something or even agree with the way someone is living THEIR life or their beliefs, opinion, etc. Why do you feel the need to comment and get your panties all in a bunch, in the mean while, changing nothing. All people like you do is get all emotional over people who could care less what you think of them or how you feel. You make yourself look bad by spewing out hateful words and intentionally tearing someone down. As if that’s the Christian way. Lol. Gotta love people who enjoy being hateful. If you don’t like it, keep it moving. Don’t ENTERTAIN YOURSELF with it. If you truly believe in the God you say you believe in, you’ll let him do the dirty work.

    • What is th definition of annointed?
      One cannot have the annointing unless you are set apart to holiness
      The scripture is the ultimate authority to judge us.
      We need to get right as a body and stop trying to see which person should be judged more than others…we all will be judged by GOD
      He is El Elon
      Including the person writing this blog and all who respond
      The word of God stands true and this applies to every one including christian claiming homosexuals…
      They among the church will not enter into heaven.. point blank
      1 Corinthians 6:9-14Amplified Bible (AMP)
      9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; [a]neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [by perversion], nor [b]those who participate in homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers [whose words are used as weapons to abuse, insult, humiliate, intimidate, or slander], nor swindlers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you [before you believed]. But you were washed [by the atoning sacrifice of Christ], you were sanctified [set apart for God, and made holy], you were justified [declared free of guilt] in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God [the source of the believer’s new life and changed behavior].
      The Body Is the Lord’s
      12 Everything is permissible for me, but not all things are beneficial. Everything is permissible for me, but I will not be enslaved by anything [and brought under its power, allowing it to control me]. 13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach for food, but God will do away with both of them. The body is not intended for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body [to save, sanctify, and raise it again because of the sacrifice of the cross]. 14 And God has not only raised the Lord [to life], but will also raise us up by His power.

      TRuth is the truth

      • Hi Truth, Now thats TRUTH!!!! The word of God, speak for itself… Now let the TRUE believer say ANEN!!!!

      • And the scriptures say to crucify the flesh NOT enable/pacify the flesh.
        We’ve to to love what God loves and hate what he hates. (Even when we like/love what GOd hates, we have to bring this flesh under subjection.). Furthermore how can we think that we can live in direct opposition to the scriptures and have the blessing of God on our lives.
        We are called to be disciples which comes from the word discipline– meaning it’s not natural, easy or desirable but it requires DISCIPLINE/ telling your flesh NO‼️
        It also talk about in Romans 1 people loving the creature (BSlade) more than the creator (GOD). People wake up. How can you oppose/disregard what the word of God says and expect that God just has to accept it because you say, “God knows my heart,” or “Only God can judge me?”
        My brothers and sisters not only does God know your heart, He also knows his word and that he has given us power over the flesh through total submission to his word.
        Lord make me OVER again.

    • You looked up the word anointed and still believe BSlade is? Okay. It is foolish to judge each other by each other. If we are the standard then EVERYONE is alright because we all have something, right? The standard for Tonex is not the other Down low preachers, lesbian preachers, fornicating church folk, molesting pastors, adulterous bishops, “bastard” children, multiple marriages, drug addicted singers with mistresses or any such person or thing. The standard for Christians and the church is Christ Jesus, We can sweep around our front doors all we want to but the only cleansing, real cleansing is Christ and his vicarious death for all of mankind. That’s for me, Sir William, every poster and yes, you also David whether you believe or not. What is this of church folk talking about “My truth?” I thought we lived by The Truth, the way and the Life by which no man comes except through Christ. I respect the Blog, Mr. Obnoxious and all posters here. I am not judging anyone. I am the FIRST who needs forgiveness, redemption and grace, I have no rocks to throw yet I am worried about the subjective truths being substituted for Biblical truths. Either, we believe or we don’t. It is real or it isn’t. The Word is true or it isn’t. What if some don’t believe? Does that make the GOD’s truth ineffective, GOD forbid, Let GOD be true and EVERY man a liar. If anyone comes to you preaching a gospel that we have not taught you let them be accursed (Let the condemnation of GOD be on them). If I am lying then it will fall on me also. Tones and EVERYONE OF US must stand before the judgment seat of Christ to give an account for the deeds we have committed in our bodies. I have prayed for Tonex/BSlade for years as I hope someone is praying for me. I don’t judge or condemn him. I believe that Christ is our example not each other.

  15. My girlfriend when I was in high school uncle used to get drunk and listened to gospel music. He used to listen to Mahalia Jackson and cry while he was drinking corn liquor. I am wondering how many will smoke a joint and look and listen to BSlade at one of his concerts ?
    It’s only entertainment.

  16. I love B Spade.
    But where is his reverence for God’s house. The house of prayer and worship? His performance is more suited for Broadway. He is gifted and talented.

    • He was a beast in his Parents church. A trail blazer for Radical praisers. Tonex is a more powerful teacher and can Preach a firestorm. Praise is really what he was taught to do.
      P.A.W. (Pentacostal Assemblies of the World) wanted to censor him, but Dr Betty (E.B.) Williams and Pastor Anthony “A.C.” Williams Sr. Was not having it. They let his gift although controversial make room for him. He dad was a musician, teacher and college football coach, Tonex was a music icon in the making from a child. An English major with a brillant mind. . A.T.A C.C. Anointed Truth Apostolic Community Chorale was a power project he produced out of their church all while his first Single “Personal Jesus” soared the gospel charts with Out the Box and the rest is HIStory…he would go to clubs in San diego and began performing for secular audiences as well. He did the them song for Flex Alexander sitcom One on One, he is s very sought after artist song writer.
      But his coming out phase hurt his base and took his parents completely out. He crosses a fine line with the pagentry of his art among non-progressive christians.
      I believe he is back with a vegeance to lay hold to his salvation.
      Toney is young but he know God. He was raised pentacostal\apostolic. I watched him dance in the Love Center video performance. He can sho nuff kick up a foot stomping eclectic high praise.
      Im praying for him, he lost his family and had the duty as Pastor so very young. He will win souls the way God called him to do.
      #What Happened in Oakland?
      #Praying for Tonex/B.Slade

      • The main issue we have today is we have a bunch of talented, gifted and even anointed people who are now spiritually delusional.
        What did the Bible say about this?
        Our gifts, talents, anointing and abilities will NOT get us salvation, keep us saved or give us eternal life.
        I feel for him. He was so hurt by the church that he is not acting rationally and he is hurting others by his rebellious actions against the church.
        I know he loves God and he loves his people but he needs healing.
        I been there. I know.
        Now, I have NEVER believed my lifestyle was right BY NO MEANS but I also know how it feels to be that homosexual boy in church and talked about like a dog while the other young folk smashing each other and having babies and they are accepted.
        God is not pleased with the church and how they treat homosexuals.
        The blood of those they have killed will be on their hands.

  17. Carnal…carnal…carnal….

  18. I always think about how he did his wife and daughter
    Another family broken up because of sin….

    • Yvette knew what she she was getting into. She went in eyes wide open…woke.

      • EXACTLY!!!!!!!!
        His ex-wife KNEW he was gay and so do ALL these women who marry these men.
        They KNOW they are gay and yet marry them because they KNOW they will be taken care of THEN when their business gets out they want to act like the victim.
        His ex-wife is a horrible mess and I let her know that.
        She disgusts me.

  19. Miss bslade did that lol. Help her Lawd

  20. You speak that truth Boo…..thats one of the main reasons sinners don’t step foot inside those places of worship a/k/a dens of every sin in the book. Damned hypocrites

  21. imtellinuthetruthforreal

    Daughter???? I Know he said he had a bunch of brothers who have
    nothing to do with him b/c of his lifestyle. I know Tonex aka BSlade,
    never heard of no daughter you sure??? Yvette is doing just find she’s
    a strong woman and has moved on.

    • His brothers and family love him. Lies. Yvette still carry his sir name Williams. What? Dont come for Tonex. Imma fan.

  22. nobitcheswithweaves

    He is cross between Prince and Sylvester

  23. I do not take it personal because when a person speak and do not agree with the written word, they are disagreeing with God. As for forgiveness, God forgives Christians when they confess their sin’s, so if God forgives them, they should forgive themselves and so should we. Why should we continue to throw it in their face. Studying God’s word will give you a clear picture of how he expects us to live. Jesus is there to help us out of sin and the Holy Spirit of corse.
    Remember Satan pride got in the way. He was the highest Angel, and the best praise and worshipper. God has prepared he’ll for his eternal destination and for those who do not confess sin as sin and reject him.
    Recommend reading a book called “Rescue,” by John Reviere.
    Question: “What does the Bible say about homosexuality? Is homosexuality a sin?”
    Answer: The Bible consistently tells us that homosexual activity is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). Romans 1:26-27teaches specifically that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying God. When people continue in sin and unbelief, God “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin in order to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from God. 1 Corinthians 6:9proclaims that homosexual “offenders” will not inherit the kingdom of God.
    God does not create a person with homosexual desires. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin (Romans 1:24-27) and ultimately because of their own choice. A person may be born with a greater susceptibility to homosexuality, just as some people are born with a tendency to violence and other sins. That does not excuse the person’s choosing to sin by giving in to sinful desires. If a person is born with a greater susceptibility to anger/rage, does that make it right for him to give into those desires? Of course not! The same is true with homosexuality.
    However, the Bible does not describe homosexuality as a “greater” sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God. Homosexualityis just one of the many things listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10that will keep a person from the kingdom of God. According to the Bible, God’s forgiveness is just as available to a homosexual as it is to an adulterer, idol worshipper, murderer, thief, etc. God also promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Philippians 4:13).
    Just know this, we all fall short. Thank God for JESUS, compassion, mercy, grace and the fact that we can pray directly to God in JESUS name & ask for forgiveness.
    The world and those who do not know God’ s word can only give you their personal opinion. I felt comfortable sharing the scriptures.
    A quick story: once a student asked me (Sunday School teacher) Ms. Thressa did you have a baby before marriage? I said yes, but God did not approve of my sin because God meant for Children to be in a 2 parent home with a husband & wife; however, I acknowledge my sin & asked forgiveness, and my child is a blessing, but it would have been easier oh course with 2 parents. Another said Ms. Thressa do you still like to party, and I said I still like to dance, but when I started going to bible study and learning more about word & God expectation of me as a Christian, my love and desire to please him overshadowed my desire to go clubbing six nights a week (SMILE).
    Hi Wendell,

    In the bible it says we are to trust God with all our heart and not lean on our own understanding. So my advice to you is to praise God, simply because you trust him to supernaturally make any changes in you. If you were able to do it by yourself, you would. God loves you, but remember he is a God of warth.
    We are living in the last days and times according to prophecy, are you “Rapture ready?”
    Being a Christian to some is unpopular, but I am proud to be a Christian. I pledge allegiance to God. John 14:6, Jesus is the only way to God. All those who deny him will one day bow & acknowledge that he is God, even those in hell who rejected him.
    Also, God is awesome, and it’s obvious God is colorful, creative, & loves beautiful things. He created you…)
    Recommend: Bible Study Fellowship (look up on line, an international bible study that simply teaches the bible, not religion)
    ………
    Matthew 7:1-2 records Jesus teaching, “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.” From this, many—Christian and non-Christian alike—have adopted the concept that we are not to judge one another. But what exactly does that mean?
    The Greek word used for “judge” in Matthew 7:1 is the same as that used to refer to God’s judgments in Revelation 19:11. In short, to “judge” is to separate, determine, or pronounce an opinion concerning right or wrong. Only God can accurately judge, for only He sees the heart (1 Samuel 16:7; Psalm 139:1, 23-24).
    It is interesting to note that following Jesus’ command is a warning; we will be judged in the same way we judge others. Often when we think of those who are “judgmental,” we think of hypocritical or self-righteous people. When we are eager to judge others, it is usually because we are eager to boost our own self-concept. Judgmental people generally do not live up to their own standards of morality. To assuage their own sense of failure or guilt, they begin comparing themselves with others, usually condemning the other in an attempt to make themselves feel acceptable.
    Jesus elaborated on this when He said, “Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye” (Matthew 7:3-5). When we are focused on the shortcomings of others, we are blinded to our own faults. We become like the servant who was forgiven a great debt yet failed to extend the same mercy to a lesser debtor (Matthew 18:21-35). Failing to see our sins impedes our ability to enjoy fellowship with Christ and to cooperate with His work of sanctification. Our blindness also precludes us from being able to help another believer along the path of righteousness. The blind cannot lead the blind.
    Though we are not to judge others in the condemnatory sense explained above, we are called to be discerning. We have a responsibility to distinguish good from evil and light from darkness (Isaiah 5:20). We should first check our own motives and our hearts for any unrecognized planks (Jeremiah 17:9), but we cannot merely say that we should not judge and therefore cannot call anything wrong. Our world is filled with sins and lies. We are to judge these things. Jesus told His followers, “Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment” (John 7:24). First Corinthians 2:14-16 says, “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. ‘For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.” When we are submitted to Christ, we can rely on the Holy Spirit to direct us into truth and right judgment (John 16:13).
    Our judgments should first be regarding matters of truth. First John 4:1 cautions, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” Once we have judged what is truth, we may then need to make a judgment concerning another person. This is not to say that we condemn that person. Rather, we judge the actions of the person and, accordingly, how we should relate with that person. If we judge a person to be a false prophet, based on the objective criteria of God’s Word, we should not listen to his teachings. If we judge the actions of a fellow believer to be out of line with God’s Word, we can gently correct him (Galatians 6:1; 1 Timothy 5:1-2; 2 Timothy 3:16-17). If he refuses to change, then we may need to stop relating with him as a fellow believer and relate with him instead as we would an unbeliever (Matthew 18:15-17).
    The key to understanding Jesus’ teaching is to look at the condition of one’s own heart. We are to make proper judgments about right and wrong, but not out of pride or self-righteousness. We are not to take God’s place in judging. We are not to condemn others. However, we are to be discerning and act appropriately on truth.
    Today TV personality (some) want to be popular, please the world, and water down the gospel. I would recommend to them to be very careful because it’s an unpleasing aroma to God.
    Another thing: because I know you live and appreciate beauty, read Revelations Chapter 22. It describe how God will be treating those who endure to the end.
    Ezekiel 3:18
    When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. (Though such passages refer to the national covenant made with Israel, they are equally to be applied to the final state of all men under every dispensation. We are not only to encourage and comfort those who appear to be righteous, but they are to be warned, for many have grown high-minded and secure, have fallen, and even died in their sins. Surely then the hearers of the gospel should desire warnings, and even reproofs). ( Reference scripture….Ezekiel 33:4, 6, 8
    Acknowledging our sin
    Psalms 32:5
    I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD”; And You forgave the guilt of my sin.
    Psalms 51:3
    For I know my transgressions, And my sin is ever before me.
    1 Corinthians 11:31-32
    But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.
    Confessing our sins
    1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. ”
    2 Samuel 12:13
    “Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD ” And Nathan said to David, “The LORD also has taken away your sin; you shall not die.”
    Repent from our sins
    Acts 3:1-9
    Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
    Acts 3:18-19
    But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
    Romans 2:5
    But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed.
    Revelations HS 3:3
    Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you

  24. What an exhaustive discourse.
    Since you had a baby out of wedlock do you consider your child a bastard as the Bible says so ?
    Do you think you have an illegitimate child ? I’m just curious since you seem to live by the scriptures.
    Do you believe the Bible when it put restrictions on a bastard child from entering the Assembly of God ?
    Are you a applying the same outcry of children born out of wedlock as you are with homosexuals?

  25. Excellent points David! Of course, she will probably give you a politically correct, biblical answer and she might even hide behind a scripture as to not answer the questions directly…
    I’ll be waiting……………

    • It’s so funny how you all are laughing about “bastard” children when Jesus was born out of wedlock…
      David, you’re not a believer anyway so this shouldn’t matter to you
      The reproduction of life is not a sin
      The act of having sex outside of marriage
      And homosexuality is the same thing
      One sin doesn’t outweigh another
      But the blood of Jesus covers a multitude of sin

      • I couldn’t let this comment slide ur wrong !!!! Jesus was not born out of wedlock? First of all Jesus was born of a VIRGIN!!! He was God wrap in FLESH!!!!

      • Theresa, she wasn’t married actually
        Read Matthew 1 and 2
        Mary wasn’t married to Joseph
        And yes He was born as God in the flesh
        Mary was going to be stoned because she was NOT married
        Read Matthew 1-3

  26. Low blow David even for you. You’ve been around Mr. Obnoxious too long.
    Brandon, not a good point. Guess what guys, you 2 as well as all of us are bastards!!!! lol
    The word “bastard” appears three times in the King James Version of the Bible. In Deuteronomy 23:2 and Zechariah 9:6 the Hebrew word is “mamzer.” While that word in Yiddish does sometimes mean an “illegitimate child,” the word itself means “mixed.” The passages would make equal sense if it is taken to mean a child of a marriage between a Jew and one of the nations the Jews were forbidden to marry. In fact, in Deuteronomy that fits the context best. “A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD. An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever.”
    The other use of the word is in Hebrews 12:8. The whole context is as follows: “And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?” (Heb. 12:5-9) The clear meaning of the term here is one who is not the legitimate son of a father. This is what we generally think of when we use the term today.
    In a spiritual sense, a bastard is one who refuses to use God’s correction to change or to be changed. He/she is one that is supposed to be of the Body of Christ, but is not a pure spiritual Israelite – washed white and clean by the blood of Christ. Instead, they have become like an illegitimate offspring from a wrong union. A mixed breed – like those that were the mixed multitude that followed Israel out of Egypt – becoming thorns in the flesh of the Israelites – causing problems and issues (Ex 12:28; Num 11:4). These try and destroy the sons of light with their slanders and lies. From such, turn away.

  27. Ed I just asked some legitimate questions. I think it went over your head. If she is using scripture to condemn the homosexual , then you have to use the scriptures to condemn fornication and bringing forth a bastard child according to the Bible.
    I am not judging or condemning her child. I think that her having a child is a beautiful thing.
    God determines legitimacy, not a sheep herdsman that wrote the Bible. God is the only one that is able to give life. Man can not and should not defile the birth of any child regardless of how they were conceived.
    My entire point ? Look in the mirror first before you take a holier than thou position.

  28. David, I apologize my brother. Sometimes, we assume the wrong thing if there is no distinctive clarity. I totally agree with you in your last statement. You should know by now that I’m not the kind who judges anyone too harshly. Sin is sin in my eyes. Great point. I had to fight an argument against a church who wanted to put this 15 year old out of the choir for getting pregnant, but you had several preachers who had babies in the church by women other than their wives, but they were still in the pulpit. I fought about it. I also had a situation where a man of God told this lady that her child wasn’t a blessing because he was a bastard and born out of wedlock. I literally addressed the hypocrisy of that statement and corrected it. So whenever I hear that statement being made, it troubles me. No offense meant to your statement. Again, great point and have a blessed day bro.

  29. Leave this blessed man of God alone! This article said just what I would have said.

  30. Gifts and callings are without repentance, Other words God doesn’t take back His gift, see what happen too Walter Hawkins with all due respect, and we see Eddie long, stop playing with God, especially when you know exactly what the word of The Lord says, people come on one more observation you can’t straddle the fence, other words can’t be lukewarm, you will fall to one side or the other Amen!!!!

  31. @Truthhurts I know I’m going to hell if it’s true that masturbation is a sin.
    When I was a young boy I masturbated so much that my penis started to shake every time I had to pee thinking that I was getting ready to take him on a journey.
    Bible is not true. People have questioned this for centuries. Celsus questioned the validity in the first century. This is nothing new. If I wrote my own Bible I would put in there that sagging pants will send you to hell.
    The Gospel According to Me 10-2016 Thou shalt use common sense in thy daily walk. If thou believeth something . thou should know the origin from whence it came and not believeth just anything that is written down.

    • How can you be sure that you say is absolute truth?
      How do you know the bible is not true?
      What evidence do you have to back it up?
      I don’t think truth was saying Masturbation was send you to hell
      We all have sinned and because of Jesus death
      His blood washes us from it
      Christ still loves you, David
      And he is waiting for you with open arms
      Love you bro!

  32. Amy Christ never existed. I know the Bible is not true because God never told anyone anything to write down or attest to.
    The only evidence of God is through nature. Jews were extremely superstitious that incorporated Pagan traditions in their writings. They all thought that God was a man or at least anthropomorphic
    The magazine Christianity Today in a 1998 issue had to concede that their is not a shred of evidence that Abraham , Isaac , or Jacob or the 400 plus years of the children of Israel sojourned in Egypt. Your Christian magazine had to admit it.
    There is no evidence in the Middle Bronze Age ( 2000-1500 BCE) of the patriarchal era. These people never existed. The dates are all wrong. Abraham is at least 1000 years behind his time which suggest that someone wrote him in a thousand years later not knowing the geographical differences that occurred since that time.
    I know it hurts to find out everything that you learned in Sunday school is a lie. Just go ahead. Cry! You may feel better.

    • It actually doesn’t hurt because I have been to Jerusalem myself and I saw each place and artifact related to Jesus
      Actually, Jewish archaeological evidence of the entire period is rather sparse. There are the remains of large and extensive Roman cities, and adequate inscriptions of leaders, including Herod, Pilate and Festus. There are also influential Jews such as Caiaphas, but almost nothing can be found recording the lives of ordinary individuals.
      The scarcity of archaeological artifacts can be contrasted, however, with the wealth of historical evidence for Christ. Soon the apostles had written letters detailing Christ’s life and teachings, to be followed by the writings of Paul all widely copied and circulated, within the lifetime of eyewitnesses. The Roman historian Josephus mentioned Christ several times while relating noteworthy civic events, including the execution of one named “James, the brother of Jesus who was called the Christ/Messiah” referring evidently to Jesus’ brother James, leader of the early church and author of the New Testament book bearing his name.
      The new artifact is an ossuary, a medium-sized box in which human bones were placed for permanent burial after the flesh had all decayed away. This practice was employed for only a brief period of time from about B.C. 20 to A.D. 70. The box is made of a soft, chalky, limestone, common to the area. The contents have long since vanished.
      Most remarkably, an inscription has been etched into the side which reads, “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus” in the Aramaic script of the time. Careful studies, including scrutiny under a scanning electron microscope show the inscription to be genuine. The patina, or oxidized surface equally covers both box and the interior of the etched letters.
      All three names used were common in that era, but seldom was the deceased’s brother mentioned, unless that brother was noteworthy. To have all three listed, in correct Biblical relationship certainly supports the possibility of this being the ossuary of the Biblical James.
      With or without the ossuary or other archeological evidence, we can still be confident that the events are true. The Christian faith is a reasonable faith, well grounded in the facts of history, and the Bible is an entirely accurate document. On its teachings we can base our lives and eternal destiny.

  33. Apparently you have not heard that the two mentions of Jesus in Josephus writings were forgeries according to Christian Apologists. Even they had to admit it. What is amazing to me is that the works of Celsus around 178 A.D. “True Discourse ” magically is missing so many of it’s original text that refuted the Christian religion in the second century.
    No eyewitness account of Jesus from a single soul. Paul thought he was a god in the sky just as the pagans thought of their gods.
    I know you are not talking about the ” Jesus Box” that was found. This is the biggest hoax since the Loch Ness Monster. Come on now with some credible sources.
    The Christian Faith is not reasonable. You can not tell me that a man can be born with having sex is reasonable.
    You can not tell me that the Almighty God all of a sudden said to himself ” Self , I made a mistake with mankind. They have no way to redemption and so I must send my only begotten son to the rescue.
