To possess, to save, and to spend money are all absolutely legitimate as far as the Word of God is concerned. But when money is magnified out of proportion or becomes an obsession and distracts the believer from the plan of God, it is evidence of monetary reversionism (James 4:13-15; 1-6).
Subject: A Need For Men and Women of God in Politics!
Dear Preachers and Those in Ministry:
I need some bold preachers to go with me into the lion’s den!
I am a veteran African American Republican who in 1979, God sent into the Republican Party to bring about change and to bring down the walls of prejudice and call the party back to the place of its original birth as the Party of Lincoln.
This has not been an easy battle. I have shared those experiences in the book I wrote, Black Eyes Shut – White Lips Sealed (victorysongcollectionspublications.com). Yet I have stood against all odds, and now it is time to take it to the next level.
What I have seen is that the racism, mean spiritedness and the foolishness that is within the Republican Party is mostly at the top. Those who rise to the top, in most cases are the perpetrators. But when you go to the grass roots level, this almost is not there or it is in lesser degrees. Many at the grass roots level are those who believe what we believe, work with us and even share sweet fellowship. However, when you begin to get involved at the party level, this is where the demons of racism rear their heads and stand as gatekeepers.
Having taught American Government, State and Local Government and International Politics and Culture of Non-Western Countries as a political science professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, I understand government at all levels – even globally. I know what it will take to break the hold and to get pass the political gatekeepers. Sit-in and protests will do absolutely nothing! Even prayer alone will not suffice. But with the power of prayer, as well as the wisdom of God, we have to move into both parties and carve out a place for ourselves as Americans, if we want to share in America’s political power base. Yes, this means moving even into the Republican Party.
As the national chair for the Black Republican Women Organization, I began back in 1987 recruiting African American women into the GOP, who were not willing to be tokens, but who could retain their blackness.
Presently, I head the National Republican African American Caucus. It is a unique republican organization because it allows African Americans to be a part of a collective body that can and will bring about change. Our goal is 1.5 million by 2012, and 500,000 in 2010. You may ask why so many? It is because political strength is in numbers! In politics, believe it or not, it has very little to do with color. It has to do with numbers and the ability to write the check. If you can show you have a substantial number of people who can stand as a voting block, and have the ability to finance your own cause, then you become a significant player within the political landscape. This is the ONLY way that we gain and retain political power. This is how we as African Americans get to the table, have a voice and place ourselves in appointed and elected positions. This is how we stop some of the foolishness that is going on in politics.
As an African American Republican, I proudly voted for President Obama in the general election. But his ability to win was because he was able to get beyond the gatekeepers and become a political player within the Democratic Party. Now we have to do the same thing within the Republican Party!
Having said all of this, I need men and women of God who will join with me to fulfill this mandate, and will join the NRAAC and even begin local caucuses. I don’t want everyone! Because it is important to remain political players in both parties. We need to be in the Democratic and Republican parties. I just need a significant number of praying people, and those who are strong and can take a stand for what is right to come into the Republican fold, so that our voices are heard.
I ask you to go to the NRAAC website at www.nraacaucus.org and see what we are all about. Then pray about this and see if you are one of the ones who God is saying, “I call you to take a stand on the other side (the Republican Party), so that you can make a difference.”
Also see if perhaps God is calling you to serve in a leadership capacity. In November, we will be making new appointments of regional and state chairs, and advisory board and national board members. If you are interested, and decide to become a member, you may submit your name, bio/resume for consideration.
I look forward to those of you who are godly and truly believe in justice and compassionate, yet self-responsibility and responsible government, joining our ranks!
…And for those of you who already are Republicans, we welcome you to the family of African American Republicans.
Let’s ALL go forth, and make a positive difference regardless of which party we are in!
Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, and to pass this e-mail on. Tennessee also has a state caucus at www.tnraacaucus.org. The websites for other states should be up by the end of October 2010. We welcome members from all states!
Look forward to hearing from you and even seeing you at the April 9th – 10th NRAAC Conference. Our theme: Setting the Republican Agenda to Include People of Color.

My Dear Co-Worker In The Ministry,
I am asking you to please take the time to learn about “transfer-factor”. These molecules give the immune system its intelligence. This is the answer to your prayers that God would send something to help people to defeat these terrible diseases. Not a vitamin, herb or mineral. It is in the first milk of every mother. This is God’s medicine!
It boost the immune system 437% above baseline. Nothing has ever been documented to boost above 70%. It even stops the immune system from attacking the human body. It is in the Physician’s Desk Reference (P.D.R.), since 2005. The best kept secret, in America!
In this region, Christians, Muslims, Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons and Atheist are joining to promote this product. I've never seen this type of cross-denominational unity. God has sent a solution to the many diseases that face your family and church members.
Many doctors and researchers are saying that this "MIRACLE MOLECULE" is the most important discovery, in 200 years. We have recently brought in some big name Bishops. None of us have ever seen people get well so fast.
TO REALLY LEARN WHAT THIS DOES AND HOW IT WORKS SEND ME YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS.
