Brother Newman,
Our Family listens to Paul Washer and a select few other ministers all of the time. We have been blessed by his teaching. As far as black Pastors I don't know. I do know that since we relocated here from Michigan to Kentucky we haven't found one church where the pastor teaches this way which is why we have service in our home. We have gone to many churches in this area but the message seems to be more about Holy Hip Hop than it is about salvation. It is evident by all of the unwed teen mothers and the young men that are fathering multiple babies by multiple young women. No one is preaching the message of repentance.

Brother Paul preaches a hard message and this is what is needed in this time. My husband and I also preach the same message as Paul as we know this is what this generation needs. Those that we minister too are not offended by the hard message because we make sure that they understand the consequences of continuing in sin. We don't just preach repent or burn in hell but we must also teach our young people how to live holy.

Unfortunately, I have come across alot of people here on BPN that feel that this type of preaching is inappropriate and that we must only preach love. The scriptures even tells us that God chastises those whom he love. The key word is chastisement. You must preach a hard word in order to reach this rebellious generation. The love message is being confused with tolerance for sin.
AFTER READING THIS COMMENT I'LL HAVE TO ASK YOU, (SINCE YOU JUDGE THE PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH YOU HAVE BEEN TO) WHO DO YOU PREACH THE HARD MESSAGE,THE MESSAGE OF REPENTANCE TOO? NOW HAVING SAID THAT IF THOSE UNWED TEENS, AND THE YOUNG MEN FATHERING MULTIPLE BABIES BY MULTIPLE WOMEN,AS YOU DESCRIBED WERE NOT AROUND THE CHURCH TELL ME WHO WOULD YOU BE PREACHING TO? THE HOLIER THAN THOU'S. I THINK IT'S A BLESSING TO SEE THE MOST MESSED UP PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH. YOU SEE THEM AND START YOUR OWN CHURCH AT HOME.NO EVANGALIST IS NOT OUT OF ORDER YOU ARE BASED ON YOUR JUDGEING GODS PEOPLE. I WARN YOU, WHILE YOU ARE JUDGEING PEOPLE YOU BETTER BE EXAMINING YOURSELF. WHILE YOU STARTING CHURCHES YOU SHOULD BE SURE GOD ORDAINED THAT. INSTEAD OF BAD MOUTHING YOU,AND JUDGEING YOU, I'LL PRAY FOR YOU. OH YEAH THERE MAY NOT BE A CHURCH IN YOUR TOWN LIKE PAUL WASHERS,WITH THAT SAID TAKE YOUR EYES OFF MAN AND KEEP THEM ON GOD
Brother I don't expect everyone to understanding why we preach the way we do. Just like I have told Fugett we minister to these young people in our home AND THEY COME SEEKING GOD. We have even employed some of them not because we judge them but want to help them. How is it a blessing to go to the very churches that don't preach the truth to them which is why their lives are in such turmoil. Just as I cautioned Fugett God's word is what stands. You too are out of line in not looking at the whole picture. I love my children and will not let them sit under a pastor who is helping to destroy these young live in our community. Pimp preachers start this SENSE of GodLESSness in our young people and only the ministers of the gospel can and will tell them the truth.

Like I said before I have ministered to many of these young people who go to these churches so I don't look down on them I minister to them. When a young woman came to me who was only sixteen and had a baby she was so sad and broken and in love I was able to minister life to her. I don't look down on her because I love her but her Pastor won't tell her that aids is killing our young people I will. In dealing with some of the young men in our community I minister to them to walk away from violence and stay out of jail but what does his pastor do. NOTHING. You think because they go to these churches they are being helped but their lifestyles shows the contrary. I DON'T CALL PREACHING JUDGING. I HAVE PICKED YOUNG PEOPLE UP IN MY CHURCH BUS TO BRING THEM TO BE APART OF OUR MINISTRY, HOW MUCH DIFFERENT IS THAT THAN ANY OTHER CHURCH. MY HOME IS A CHURCH JUST LIKE WHERE YOU WORSHIP AND IF GOD IS THERE THEN THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.

When I speak of the hard message that is what we preach. Do you mean to tell me that I was wrong when a young mother asked me if she should date some fellow while still married to her husband, I told her what the bible says about being still joined to her husband and that it would be committing adultery if she carried on this relationship. I didn't beat her brains out with it but told her what the bible says. Was I wrong for telling a 15 year old boy that if he continues in the path of selling drugs that he would end up in prison. This is not JUDGING BUT PREACHING. Each time I speak THE HARD TRUTH TO ANY OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE IT IS IN LOVE AND THEY KNOW THAT I HAVE THEIR BEST INTEREST AT HEART AND IS NOT PUTTING THEM DOWN.

I can give you story after story of how I deal with the you girls and young men who have been hoodwinked by lukewarm pastors.

I suppose you think the churches that these young people are attending was ordained. (Even with an adulteress Pastor huh) I never said we started a church I said we have church in our home and anyone is welcome. As long as I have God's strength I will continue to warn THE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE DYING IN THEIR SINS BECAUSE OF THESE APOSTATE PASTORS. REGARDLESS TO WHAT YOU OR FUGETT MAY THINK

I don't think we have enough time on this earth to let our young people just live any kind of way while the preachers collect their offerings, fleece the flocks and murder the youth with their lukewarm doctrines. How many young people have to contract aids before the black church wakes up and stops making excuses for not addressing the issue. My husband use to work in the surgical area of a Detroit hospital and have seen our young people die of aids within a weeks time and it's not pretty. I will not shut my mouth and I suggest you not shut yours or we will continue to bury our young people in the very CHURCHES THAT LET THEM DOWN. YOU PEOPLE ALWAYS CONFUSE PREACHING WITH JUDGING. WHEN REFLECTING ON THE STATE OF THE YOUTH IN THE CHURCHES IT'S A REFLECTION OF IT'S WEAK LEADERSHIP AND NOT THEM.
you talk as though all these youth's conditions are the result of the preacher's lack of teaching,i can't speak for you but seem's to me like 1000's of people come to church because they fall short, because they're messed up. oh by the way i do agree with you on this there are lot's of preacher's that's all about money,cars,jewelry, and not these peoples souls. but you need to know there are plenty of BLACK let me repeat, BLACK churches that's about GOD"S business
oh by the way this comment you are making is controdicting what you you said in your first comment
I don't contradict how I feel about the truth. Yes, I will not take my children too a church and sit under a preacher who helps to fuel the atmosphere of fornication amongst the youth. However, I don't look down on them and when given a chance to minister to them OUTSIDE OF THE CHURCH BUILDING I TAKE IT. IT WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE IT. Refusing to fellowship in someones apostate church but rather choosing to minister outside the church is perfectly okay.

Sir you don't know a thing about me and I don't have time to tell it all but if you only knew how I felt about these teen mothers and teen fathers you would leave me to just preach the gospel. I don't have to sit in a congregation of Tolerance to show support to the pastor but Everybody in this neighborhood knows where we live and parents and youth come by here when they want to. How will they know the truth unless someone tells them. I am sure you preach it in your hood so my husband and I will continue to preach it in ours.

I will not make young people feel comfortable in their sins AND THAT IS BECAUSE I LOVE THEM. THAT IS NOT JUDGING BROTHA.
you are right you don't have to sit in any church,and you should'nt if the atmoshere is as you describe, i personally think it's a blessing for you to teach and preach God's word to the lost. i could and would not knock you for that. all i'm saying is although there are so many so-called bible teaching churches,there's lot's that are teaching and preaching the true unadulterated word of God. i encourage you and your husband to continue to minister as you do. i'm not caught up on if its in the house or not.
may God continue to bless your family,and your ministry
I believe that there are some as well. I also agree that we have to give them hope in Jesus as well. You can't just preach hell, without preaching an escape in Jesus Christ, that is the gospel that through Jesus we have life
and we must show or be examples of what Jesus does, and how HE uses us as vessels to show others.

Rev. it is not enough to say to a young woman,/man "wear a dress", "pull your pants up" so that you can APPEAR holy, we must teach them that their bodies are the temples of the Holy Ghost and that a man/woman that loves you will wait.

That they make a blood covenant with their spouses, when they give their virginity.

Our people suffer because of the lack of knowledge, this knowledge not given to our children is part of the problem.

In reference to the situation above and many more....

Preaching is good, but there has to be someone that can say "this is why" and "here is the way"

We need to put this on the minds of our children and train them up in this manner.
Yes agreed, but that's all we seem to preach in the black "cherch", its a watered down feel goody gospel while most in the audience is living in complete depravity and fornication and on drugs cause the leadership keep them in a state of "herbology" in God. Yes God is a God of love, but He is also a God of Wrath.

In order for me to preach the Good News of Christ, one must first preach the Bad News as well. Lets be balanced and preach a convicting message as well as a happy one.
I think there is a misunderstanding by some, that when we preach like brother Paul we are condemning folk to hell. I also think that it is assumed that we are only saying repent or burn in hell without giving or sharing the message of Salvation.

You summed it up very well brother when you said BALANCE, because without it the hearers are unchanged. You simply cannot preach YES JESUS LOVES ME, only when people are living in SIN. No one is trying to dress our young people up like Christians without giving them the TRUE word of God. We are merely saying you can't preach one truth without the other. It will not work. The present state of AMERICAN CHURCHES is a good example of what you get when you don't give the whole truth. LUKEWARM, WATERED DOWN, CANDY COATED GOSPEL HAS MADE THE CHURCH INTO A CESSPOOL OF SIN AND GODLESSNESS.
I certainly wouldn't put all black preachers in the same category either brother. I just don't know of any around here in our little town. I come from the Detroit area where there are many powerhouse black preachers. (I sure miss that area) Likewise, not all white preachers are like brother Paul Washer. You have a lot of Joel Olsteen's out there who are the "don't rock the boat type preachers".

In our seeking in this area, we have found something that I have never witnessed before. I have never seen a church full of young people doing as they please where the pastor won't preach a word about it. One church imparticular has a pastor that jokes around with the young girls when they come to church. It bothers me to see a 40 something pastor who preaches about his past infidelities all the time and his wife always has a look of fear on her face. It also bothers me to see churches that entertain youth with Holy Hip Hop but won't tell them the truth about sexual sins and what they can lead to. A lot of young people in our area have HIV and some aids which is why it is important for our churches to stop cradling fornication and other sexual sins. We need to tell them the truth about what Satan is up to. The Lord gave me a word for a young woman one day who was battling loneliness. What she was contemplating was a set up. It was revealed to me that a young man was trying to kill her with aids. I don't know the young man but I could feel it in my spirit that she should not go down this road. It was later confirmed by the young man's EX-GIRLFRIEND that he had given her aids and that the other young woman should leave him alone.

So pastors in general whether black or white are doing a major disservice to our young people when they just allow sexual sin to fester and not open their mouths to teach, preach (educate) people on the matter. We must sometimes preach a hard message to drive home a point. One pastor in his preaching was a good example of how we should not preach. In his message he said, fornication is wrong but if you do it WE STILL LOVE YOU. What was that? That was all he said on the subject. That is not considered preaching against sin. You must go into details of the consequences of sin. The way he preached that little segment just made every young person say that it is not a big deal if I do fornicate. We must Cry Aloud and spare not.
