Before I go into my presentation I want our listeners to know that our hearts and prayers goes out to the victims and their families of the elementary school shooting in Texas. Family things are going to get even worse Black America listen to me you have two choices either embrace Annihilation or embrace Survival. This will be a controversial subject that needs to be address. I will be using three terms throughout this presentation The Social Gospel, Black Liberation Theology and Prosperity Gospel.
The Social Gospel is a social movement within Protestants that aims to apply Christian ethics to social problems, especially issues of social justice such as economic inequality, poverty, alcoholism, crime, racial tensions, slums, unclean environment, child labor, lack of unionization, poor schools, and war. They sought to put into practice the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:10): “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”
Black Liberation Theology, refers to a theological perspective which originated among African-American pastors and scholars. It contextualizes Christianity in an attempt to help those of African descent overcome oppression. It especially focuses on the injustices committed against African Americans and black South Africans during American segregation and South Africa Apartheid era.
Prosperity Gospel, is a religious belief among some Protestant Christians that financial blessing and physical well-being are always the will of God and that faith, and donations to religious causes will increase one’s material wealth. Material and especially financial success is seen as a sign of divine favor.
We’re going to start with the Black Church. The Black Church has always been a huge pillar for the black community. Over the years the black church has collected more than $420 billion dollars in tithes and donations since 1980. From an economic perspective the black church has the greatest amount of wealth of any black institutions but it has not always reinvest back into the black community. There’s a report from Eurweb entitled “Black Churches Are On the Decline Across America” I believe that if we would follow the main principles in the Bible our community would be much better. The Black Church isn’t what it use to be years ago. The Black Church used to be the meeting place for the black grass roots to strategize boycotts during the Civil Rights Era. After the Civil Rights Movement the financial elites decided to offer the Black Church a nonprofit status the catch was they could no longer be involved with politics. As I mentioned in my revised book “The Solution For Black America” second edition Margaret Sanger used black preachers and black nurses during the Negro Project.
The latest hot topic in American politics is about the Supreme Court making a decision to over turn Roe vs Wade by letting the States make that decision. Black Americans need to understand that the Negro Project was a eugenics project meant to depopulate the black race in America. Margaret Sanger would not have been successful with the Negro Project if she did not have black sell outs assisting her.
Today we have black preachers who continues to exploit black people. For example, Creflo Dollar obtain $65 million dollars to purchase a private jet while black families in Atlanta are struggling to make ends meat. The reason why lots of young people especially black millennials and generational Z are unhappy with the black church because many of them voted for Joe Biden. The Democrats haven’t done anything for black people yet the Black Church continue to support them. The Black Church as a collective does not address
controversial issues like Police Brutality, Systematic Racism and White Supremacy instead they water it down to just focusing on Dating, Dieting and Improving Your Self-Esteem. We have black churches and liquor stores on every block in the black community competing against one another for members. The reason why we have so many churches is because of these Beta Male Black Preachers who want to have their own ministries. They didn’t want to follow the hierarchy under a black male leadership. This whole church closure thing is sad because of gentrification meaning the areas where these black churches are established are now being taken over and our people are being priced out of their community thanks in part to this Willie Lynch mentality among black people. The black community is being replace by outsiders who are taking advantage of the low cost in property value. Land developers are buying up the hood in order to turn the community into a suburbanized areas. They are building up subdivisions where the average black person can’t afford to live there any longer. Urban Gentrification seems like a good idea to revitalize the community but the downside of gentrification is that it price out the original residents.
A lot of young people are becoming agnostic or atheist because of peer pressure or because their parents did not introduce them to God at an early age. The closure of the black church across the United States of America is directly connected to our failure as Christians to identify the problems in the black community. Many of these are following false teachings and false God’s. I ran across a lot of prosperity preachers after I left my mothers church to find my own church home. They only preached about health, wealth and prosperity. The black church has become a side show look at all of the shucking and Jivin’ that goes on. The Bible says that in the last days people will flock to teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:3
I will share four major problems I have with Prosperity Gospel. The first problem I have with Prosperity Gospel is that it is inconsistent with what the Bible teaches. The Bible says that in this Christian life we can expect to experience trials and tribulations. Acts 14:22
Suffering Rom 8:17
Pain 2 Tim 3:12
The Bible also high lights the fact that there will be poor believers among us and that we should esteem them rather than make them feel like second class Christians. Hasn’t God chosen the poor in this world to be rich in faith? Aren’t they the ones who will inherit the kingdom he promised to those who love him? James 2:5
The second problem I have with Prosperity Gospel is that it switches the focus from God to us. The third problem I have with Prosperity Gospel is it set people up for disappointment with God. Many of these pastors tell their members that God is going to do this and that for you but when that does not happen then they are told the reason why it did not happen is because they did not have enough faith. It’s offensive to people who are poor or who is dealing with terminal illnesses. The fourth problem I have with Prosperity Gospel is these teachings is inconsistent with the life of Jesus and his disciples. The Apostle Paul admits to having what he calls a thorn in his flesh 2 Cor 12:7
The Bible says that Jesus was a carpenter which was not a fluent career in those days. It also says that Jesus was a traveling preacher and live off the benevolence of others Luke 8:3 The Bible says Jesus life was characterized by pain, sorrow and ultimately by death on a cross Isa 53:3
I’m not saying that we serve a God who is not able to heal us or bless us with wealth if that be his will. I’m also not saying God wants us to be poor and sick. All I’m saying is if we go through seasons of our life and we find ourselves in those difficult situations it is God’s desire that we glorify him. Phil 4:11–13
I am calling on a referendum on all Black Christians in America I’m challenging every Black Christian in America to purchase my revised book and read my story. If you agree with my vision and plan then work with me in turning the vision into a reality.
The Bible says Hosea 4:6 King James Version
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
We have a lot of young people leaving the church because of their lack of knowledge they are fallen away from God. The Black Church has become a big business and a lot of these pastors are only pastors because of the money. I found a documentary entitled The Black Church Inc I posted the film under show and prove on my Medium Transcript. Back in the day when black people took the church serious the black community flourished. Then the Civil Rights Era began and afterwards the emergence of the Black Power Movement. Then came the Crack epidemic of the 80s. Joe Biden Crime Bill was passed which gave rise to the Mass Incarceration Prison Industrial Complex. Since then it has been a downward spiral in the black community. All of a sudden black people wonder why is the black community is failing? Another reason why the black community is failing because our grandparents made a huge mistake by pushing for social integration instead of pushing for Black Economic Empowerment meaning ownership and control over resources in the black community. The financial elites shift their tax base outside of urban areas into the suburbs. Instead of allowing black people to manage these factories here in America they decided to out source all of these factories under(NAFTA) North American Free Trade Agreement to places like China, India and Mexico for cheap labor.
In contrast, my vision for Black America is to offer a solution to our predicament which is connecting with other like minded Black People and push for Black Economic Empowerment. Our objective is to have ownership and control of the economic resources in our community.
I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement on November 11th of 1991 on a site called Gopher in order to connect with other like minded Black People/African People and others who were serious about solving black issues in America, eventually throughout the Diaspora and on the African continent. I believe this new technology called the internet would help connect us together so that we can do great thing on a domestic front and on a international front. GRCAM is an End Times Spiritual Warfare virtual Christian Socialist organization in the 21st Century for the Mobile Generation. I use both my Christian groups & Secular groups to network on a global level. GRCAM is a revolutionary 21st Century Kingdom Building and Global Black Unity.
For me Christian socialism is an authentic form of Christianity. A Christian socialist is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. Many Christian socialists believe that capitalism is idolatrous and rooted in greed, social inequality, and institutionalized racism which most Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. We will focus on what we stand for: love, compassion, social justice, and liberation theology.
Jesus told us to focus on the lease of these in society according to Matthew 25:35–40. He also commanded us to be a witness to others not just for us to read his word, but to activate social change in the world according to Matthew 28: 16–20. We will be committed to the healing ministry of Jesus by showing compassion to inner city youth and their families which will promote dignity to the people and community we will serve. We will promote an authentic form of Christianity which is for me Christian Socialism. We will emphasize the importance of morals and character development for both Christians and Non-Christians. We embrace the Social Gospel and Black Liberation Theology. I have a Nehemiah assignment which is to rebuild the black community and strengthen the black family if given a chance. Nehemiah did not rebuild the walls of Jerusalem by himself he had qualified Architects, Brick Layers and Engineers.
Yet for 30 years Black America in Chicago and online has refuse to embrace my vision and plan which is to eradicate Urban Violence in Chicago through Arts, Culture, Commerce and Spiritual Development. We also plan on launching African & Caribbean tours in order to reconnect with the Global African Family. If Black America continue to ignore my vision and plan then our racial group as a collective will end up becoming a permanent underclass. I predict black wealth in America is going to hit zero by 2050. The black community is being gentrified left and right. Black Americans don’t want to build anything or own anything. The murder rate in our inner cities across the United States of America is on the rise. 70% of black children can’t read. This is spiritual warfare at it’s best. Once we’re able to get our film project fully funded and made then we can turn GRCAM into (GRCAI of Chicago) the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago. We will take the lead in turning around the black community in Chicago if given a chance.
Every other group in America is working together to compete for resources except black people. Adopting American culture is making black people have broken families, getting black men locked up on Rico charges, getting young black people addicted to drugs. In my Christian business we will teach our members about winning cultures like the Amish culture, Asian culture and Jewish culture. Family structure is important, education is important and practicing group economics is key to a winning culture.
The proceeds from the film will put me in a better position financially so that I can hire qualified Black Middle Class Professionals, buy office equipment and purchase property on the Westside of Chicago and eventually on the Southside of Chicago. GRCAI of Chicago will become a tourist attraction and help revitalize the black community and black businesses that’s already there. We welcome Non-black sympathizers they can patronize our film project but it’s black people responsibility to built it and to own it.
GRCAI of Chicago will bring revenue to the black community while building up our own economy then we can solve many of these issues in black society. We will declare war on this Willie Lynch mentality within black culture. Our members will learn how to heal collectively and stop destroying ourselves. We have access to a lot of resources in America we just need to take care of ourselves as a collective.
GRCAI of Chicago will help prioritize our goals such as securing our neighborhood and protecting our women and children. We will reach out to former gang members and people who were incarcerated for non-violent crimes this is what my creator called me to do.
GRCAI of Chicago will provide quality programs and services that will strengthen the Black Family and benefit the Black Community. GRCAI of Chicago will operate under 7 separate functions within the organization.
1. Social Service component
2. Spiritual component (optional for secular people)
3. Political component (under our For Profit Service Based Business)
4. Entertainment component
5. Entrepreneur component
6. Health & Wellness component
7. Black Media component (The New Black Voices of Media)
In this organization we will separate ourselves from Off Code Negros, Active Gang Members, Pedophiles, Rapist and Urban Terrorist. When slavery ended our ancestors left those plantations the back stabbers and massah pleasures followed behind them. GRCAI of Chicago will raise the bar in Black America. We will hold mandatory orientation, everyone will be screen and must sign our community pledge. We will also require our members thumb print so that we can keep tabs on who is doing what within the organization. Everyone must contribute something to the organization no free loaders. We will pool our resources together in order to create and control our own healthcare center, grocery store and affordable housing this will be group economics in action.
My Vision For Africa:
Once we’re established in America we plan on launching our African tours to meet with people from my African group called GRCAI of Africa. We plan on reconnecting with our ancestral homeland Africa. It’s our hope that African Immigrants within the United States would come forth and work with me and Sister Rena forming an alliance with Africa and the people. We plan to visit 10 African nations which are as follows: Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Angola, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda. We want to match African Entrepreneurs with Black Entrepreneurs, African Artist with Black Artist so that we can do international trade among our people. We plan to setup a local chapter in each African nation we visit.
GRCAI of Africa will provide a platform to unify the Diaspora with Continental Africans to opportunities on the continent. Topic of discussions would include:
Relocation and citizenship
How to buy property
Developers who can custom build your home
Local Mortgage lenders List for financing options
Investment strategies and projects on the continent
Networking among other Africans in the diaspora
Discounts on travel through our travel agency partners
Initiatives to build Africa and provide relief for communities in need
GRCAI of Africa will partnered with tailors, service providers, real estate companies, banks and construction companies starting in South Africa while helping build local businesses and improve local and international commercial trade between Africa and our brothers and sisters in the Diaspora. GRCAI of Africa would offer the following:
Travel & Tour Booking
Real Estate & Relocation Assistance
Investment Consulting & Management
GRCAI of Africa will replicate GRCAI of Chicago.
GRCAI of Africa will go through the proper channels with the African government to start our (NGO) Non-government organization. We are determined to work with our disadvantaged brothers and sisters in the society to improve and enhance the capacity for self-development. To promote GRCAI of Africa to the people of Africa. To fight against corruption. To nurture young Africans by conducting mentoring programs and various youth activities. To promote education through establishing learning centers. To promote health among the people living in rural and low-income urban areas by organizing for medical camps and health awareness campaigns. To participate in various economic activities geared towards improving the standards of living among the people in low-income rural and urban centers.
GRCAI of Africa will offer private employment to our members based on our budget and sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for building bridges, roads, power lines, clean running water, agricultural technology, solar and wind energy to help our members with their electrical generators and most of all help improve the African economy.
It’s not my burden alone but rather a shared burden for I am just one black man with a vision and a plan, it takes a team to make a dream work. GRCAM is a global community of thinkers and builders I need your help to move GRCAM from behind a computer into our urban communities that need our talent and skills.
Mark 6:10–11 King James Version
And he said unto them, In what place so ever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
Proverbs 1:29–30 New King James Version
Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the LORD, They would have none of my counsel And despised my every rebuke.
Proverbs 13:22 New International Version
A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.
Genesis 15:13–14 King James Version
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
Deuteronomy 28:68 King James Version
And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
Ezekiel 34:11–16 King James Version
For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord God. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
Luke 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
Acts 17:7 Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.
Luke 10:19 King James Version
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
