From my Bible reading today: “Woe unto those who teach anything other that what Jesus preached!)

(Note: The last sentence before the scriptures is the one that I truly feel is the one God wants people to die to their pride and focus on. Hit me hard and I could feel his anger).

As I read these passages God showed me certain people who people are taught to follow yet God reminds us that we are not to follow “man” because man has the capability to be corrupt.

We are to follow and seek,God for who and what we need. This is the reason that so many people listen to and follow people like Rev Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who purport to be men of God yet at every turn they are loathe to practice, teach, or live out spreading “peace” or “forgiveness” like Jesus not only does but admonishes us to as well.

Where are these “brothers” at when the numerous of black kids are killed daily by other black kids at?  Why are they not marching daily in the streets of Chicago where black people are being slaughtered by black people at an ever alarming rate?  Why are they not marching and decrying the fact that black folk who are only 13 percent of the population in this country commit over 60 percent of the crime and of that percentile black youth commit an overwhelming 73 percent?

WHERE ARE THEY?  THEY ARE AND HAVE BEEN ABSENT!  Yet they go back to their little office buildings…outside of the hood…or their churches….as they rape the hood of its relationship with God by bringing curses on it with their false and un-Jesus-like teachings..and then try to teach us about Jesus?

This is why so many from people in every walk of our faith will make excuses for, accept, and even walk in agreement with people be it in politics, family, or in big, public debates as the “leaders” lie to achieve their own goals under the guise of helping the people and use any/every situation to move their agenda forward.

One only has to look at what is happening in Ferguson, MO to see the example of what I’m talking about.

Leaders, many of them who claim to be affiliated in some way and even dare I say who claim to be teachers of “Christ” have come into the speaking about being “calm” but emboldening and even encouraging people who want to “burn this b—- down”.

Show me anywhere in Jesus’ words where He gives us a pass on peace or forgiveness; however, I am by sharing these scriptures today showing you the truth about many of our leaders both in the private sector and the political sector, both in the secular as well,as,the “Church”, from black to white, from Democrat to Republican who claim “Christ” but refuse to act in a manner consistent with His teachings…they act (and you along with them if you follow them..wow..God just put this firmly in my heart) like their father…the devil:

(‭Matthew‬ ‭23‬:‭1-12‬ MSG)

Now Jesus turned to address his disciples, along with the crowd that had gathered with them. “The religion scholars and Pharisees are competent teachers in God’s Law. You won’t go wrong in following their teachings on Moses. But be careful about following them. They talk a good line, but they don’t live it. They don’t take it into their hearts and live it out in their behavior. It’s all spit-and-polish veneer.

“Instead of giving you God’s Law as food and drink by which you can banquet on God, they package it in bundles of rules, loading you down like pack animals. They seem to take pleasure in watching you stagger under these loads, and wouldn’t think of lifting a finger to help. Their lives are perpetual fashion shows, embroidered prayer shawls one day and flowery prayers the next. They love to sit at the head table at church dinners, basking in the most prominent positions, preening in the radiance of public flattery, receiving honorary degrees, and getting called ‘Doctor’ and ‘Reverend.’

“Don’t let people do that to you, put you on a pedestal like that. You all have a single Teacher, and you are all classmates. Don’t set people up as experts over your life, letting them tell you what to do. Save that authority for God; let him tell you what to do. No one else should carry the title of ‘Father’; you have only one Father, and he’s in heaven. And don’t let people maneuver you into taking charge of them. There is only one Life-Leader for you and them—Christ.

“Do you want to stand out? Then step down. Be a servant. If you puff yourself up, you’ll get the wind knocked out of you. But if you’re content to simply be yourself, your life will count for plenty.
