Well, it is official. According to Black Christian News Network and in an article, and written about in the blog of GCMWatch.com confirmed our concerns regarding the induction of OC Allen into the MLK Board of Preachers.
Morehouse College and the MLK Board of Preachers refused to confirm something that OC Allen put on his webpage until real late in the game. Neither have they responded to my request except that they referred me to the Chapel. The Examiner, Obnoxious, and other sources have spoken about this and not much has been done on the part of the MLK Board of Preachers to come from hiding to talk about this.
You know why….don’t you?
When you are dealing with the sin of homosexuality or any form of Secret Sexual Sins and its poisonous venom, snakes love to hide before they strike.
At other times, when some snakes believe that their life is threatened, if they do not have another way out, they will strike and run.
It seems to me that the caretakers of the post Civil Rights era had a way out.
In other words, do not say a word or answer any questions from the opponents of the sin of homosexuality.
Just let it happen.
Sometimes, people do not believe that the Lord is using folk to flush out folk to get to the truth.
Not surprising when you are doing things underhanded anyway.
You kind of expect real men to “man up” and take the heat but when you put your tail between your legs, run, and hide until the event is over, it’s a coward’s way to respond. With Black folk doing things with sleight of hand, it’s a ghetto move. I thought that where we came from, we stand up to those that pose legitimate questions to gain clarity without fear.
We all know that the answer to the question about inducting a practicing homosexual to the MLK Board of Preachers is wrong.
It is clear as a bell.
Just like heaven is made for the righteous and hell was created for the devil and his angels. And remember what Jesus said to the religious leaders of His day. “You are of your father, the devil….”
So children of the devil will end up in hell with their father.
Some will argue that you are condemning. You do not have a hell to put people into. You are right.
But God does have a hell, and He also has the lake that burns with fire and brimstone to put all that oppose Him into.
The basic gospel message of the Lord Jesus Christ is the highest essence of all preaching. To preach anything else or to replace it with anything else is not preaching but delusional oration that will condemn all people that listen to hell. When you include a practicing homosexual into something that was once prestigious, everyone is bewildered beyond measure as to……WHY?
We cannot say that Dr. King would not have stood for this because he is not with us.
But we who have been called to preach the Holy Word of God know better.
You cannot mix sin with preaching, much less mix sin with righteousness. That’s a no brainer (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 1 Corinthians 9:27).
The quality of character is significantly lacking these days in African American leadership.
Martin Luther King’s courage under tremendous obstacles is a great testament to his character and fortitude. It is clear that the caretakers of his audacious powerful legacy chose to do the opposite.
It is not a proud moment for Morehouse and the MLK Board of Preachers.
