Andrew Caldwell, 22, who attended the Church of God in Christ convention earlier last month was invited to the altar give a testimony which stirred quite a controversy and caused others to review his past history which included allegations of money scandals. During the service Caldwell gave a testimony stating that he is no longer gay anymore he don’t like men anymore and likes a woman, woman to which the audience goes up in praise.

Jesus healed blind eyes, raised the dead, cast out devils even while walking the earth.  He is able to deliver, work miracles, and heal a person from anything including mental pain, physical pain, sick minds, homosexuality, headaches, any major disease cancer etc. The list goes on until I would not be able to name it all.  He has done it before. Although some new ideologies of society say that people are born gay, the Christian faith the Bible does not support that belief. Science believe that and associated it as cognitively incurable. Psalms 107:20KJV He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Luke 18:27 KJV The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

In a do what thou wilt new age, antichrist, inclusion society all lifestyles are permeated.  It is to the extent that support every imaginable wicked thing even since the days of the cities Sodom and Gomarrah which were filled with things that God did not approve. We have to have the mind of Christ. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.  Same sex orientation does not  take a description as  identifiable as oh say…  gender or even skin colors or races which externally comes with everyone. Instead homosexuality is a spirit that enters some people lives. The Bible speaks about strong holds. It is one  of  many types strong holds. Strong holds are essentially bondage which impose  holds on  people  lives impeding them from walking in the perfect will of God. It does not call for a counseling appointment with a psychiatrist, but the power of God casting the devil out. 2Corinthians 10:4KJV speaks about the pulling down of strong hold.  2Corinthians 10:3-5KJV 

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Genesis 18:14KJV Is any thing too hard for the LORD? and also Jeremiah 32:27KJV reiterates the same thing, and  I love to hear to testimonies and the goodness of Jesus and deliverance testimonies,  however there was something that just did not sit right in the young man’s action when I first saw it.   He says he has been “Delivert”, not delivered? Though it was theatrical and the music was going, this particular video did  looked very staged and it really did not  appear sincere, even before regarding  that Anthony Caldwell was apparently given some money. Many are questioning whether Caldwell was simply given a random monetary blessing which was non directly associated with his testimony. According to a YouTube video, Andrew himself says a bishop gave him some money (100 dollars according Andrew). The bishop gave Andrew Caldwell money $100 (out of over 30,000 other people at the convention), and that led  other members to began giving Caldwell money all after his testimony. The alleged stunt could have been for a testimony or even the type of testimony. The Cogic can just really stop with the paid actors.

Bishop Charles Blake made public statement regarding the incident days after the service.  Bishop Blake says one of his 15 bishops who spoke at the convention made some offensive statement. While Bishop Blake has some ties with endorsing some support inclusive of lgbt rights, he appeared to have given very little regards to such a deliverance testimony even in the matter as the COGIC convention has been  a hookup meetup place for some members of lgbt  much like the GMWA, and the Cogic also ordained some of them ministers in their organization which is quite obvious open and apparent by recent news. Bishop Blake was upset over some statements made at the convention by  Bishop Eric at the convention. Bishop Blakes statements are below.

On Saturday evening  November 8th,  one of our more than 15 speakers used to terms and spoke in a way that was offensive and inappropriate. Though he alone was responsible for the nature and tone of his remarks, it was on my watch that this took place, even though I was not present at the service on that night.  As presiding bishop  of the Church of God in Christ,  I apologize for what seemed to be a harsh, un-compassionate, disrespectful spirit on the part of that speaker said Bishop Charles Blake

The viral portion of the Anthony Caldwell video surfacing the web actually features Bishop Brandon Porter  brandonporterwho is seen asking Andrew Caldwell “Do you believe the Lord tonight has set you free? Turn around and tell these people.” Porter is also now doing interviews dissociating himself as the speaker of that service instead emphasized that he was only moderator for the service. They are stuck on titles.  Bishop or elder  Bishop or Elder Earl Carter, and what did he say?At 1:43sec

Bishop Blake says I also apologize to Andrew Caldwell a young seeker for the Lord who came forth and made statements on that night regarding his change of heart and his purpose in life.

His testimony literally went viral, and it is brought upon him criticism and sardanocism. We extend our love our  prayers to that young man as seeks to know God and to serve God. We believe that we should reflect the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.

In  Bishop Blake apologetic address regarding the viral video, he started out by giving prestige and numbers of the organization and then later mixing in his political agenda.elderbishopblake Bishop Blake proceeded by reading statistical information on  how many came to Lord, how many received the Holy Ghost, how many re-dedicated their lives, how the convention offered a Christmas in November program  with toys and blankets etc, health checks, and a job fair. He stated how many received interviews, while never stating how many actually received jobs. I am sure the interview are not the issue, but getting the job.   Bishop Blake went on to say “letters were sent  by me to the political leaders”. You would have to wonder what all this has to do with him sending letters to governor, political leaders etc. Is not the church separate from politics?  I believe Blake’s premise for his statements were in the regard of his personal support and political support of the lgbt because he signed the interfaith movement and as well the type of church he leads which is 501c3 status. Certain issues and topics are prohibited under the status, so it joins the church and state much like a unit rather than separate as we known. The  501c3 status allows them to be directly funded in many ways such as receiving brand new free stuff, food, toys, clothes etc. from stores and warehouses which is correlated through political source filing status 5013c, and thus and such came a limitation on their speech. Alot of the mega larger churches even in some smaller churches joined the bandwagon.

I heard someone in the background of that video saying Welcome back Carter. Whereever has he been? He had left.  Earl Carter spoke at a Church of God in Christ service in 1985 according to YouTube video,  but this recent video of Bishop Blake’s statement was likely a way letting him know it is not 1985 anymore?!

I was noticing how the COGIC audience were  in support of what Eric Carter was saying while he was up there speaking, and then days later they were all for Charles Blake  when he was up there.  Both of them cannot be right on this one.  Bishop Blake was not firm against homsexuality only reading off the organizations written stance on the issue, and he exemplified a political agenda or  instead of  biblical. It is devitalizing the Cogic members.  It is quite sad. He is ushering the antichrist.  Elder Eric Carter statement likely would have been right in the clip, but his mouth is not right (out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh) and also in presenting we should not call people the vulgarities of obscene names like sissies neither  banana backs, fag-t, p-nks etc. really?!?(  though ministers are using these names loosely, that is not Christ like) It is acting like the world.  They will not be drawn like that with calling them names. They have a soul that need to be led to Jesus Christ.  You will still be able to present a strong message, non compromising message by emphatically expressing in other means of letting them know it is an abomination which is something God hates not them, but the ungodly spirit that it is driving them. Jesus Christ is well able to deliver them and anybody from anything, but they need to truly and whole heartedly surrender and submit totally to him.Some nfl and nba sportsmans have been in recent news  and even actor and actresses who are saying they are lgbt which is suprising to some, so it is not always gestures, so understand moreover it is a spirit.  Corinthians 6:9KJV addresses  effeminate.  Deuteronomy 22:5KJV The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. Leviticus 18:22 KJV Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is abomination.  The names listed above particularly sissies nanabacks etc. are so worldly, and they just did not sound right for a minister. It  was not right to use  not just in the pulpit.  It is more likely to encourage the homosexual individuals to accept the behavior and spirit instead of doing what they need to do which is a laying aside sin every weight, giving up the  Devil/demon/unclean spirit  and submitting to God all which they should do or else why are they coming to the conventions. I know it is has been annual show instead. Bishop Eric went on to make further  statements that were perverse recently so filled with tawdry. I will speak about it later. Yes they were times names were used. There were times in the bible wherein deceivers were called wolves, vipers or snakes on ocassions, so there are optimal expressions and even as the Lord leads the minister personally with other  examples and words without going in the left field and talking about rectums as Bishop Eric did etc. in another of his recent statements swarming the net. Just what in the world?  Stay on the right side.
