  1. Sunday night, 13 April 2014: I like Michael Junior. He is the best since clean comedian actor, Sinbad.  My favorite is his "Random Thoughts". I wish that he would make up some new random thoughts. Michael, like Sinbad are proof that a comedy actor can be funny and Not curse, not use profanity. Let's Go Miami Heat to Win in 2014: nkd

  2. Shout out to Dan below for sharing his hurt for God to heal. I'm praying for you, man.

    This video is awesome and I can't even count how many times I've seen his same act but each time is hilarious, encouraging and uplifting. Bless God for Michael Jr. for his commitment, confidence in and boldness to do what God has called him to do.

    I'm inspired to use the gifts God has given me and the random ways of seeing things He places in my mind, even though some people buck against my differences from them. He made each of us special for specific purposes and it is our job to give Him our all!

  3. Nah! Still not laughing, what is the purpose of a comedian in the church? Niggas need to get real with God and stop trying to be God because you're not, you niggas trying to sound intelligent with humour, if you want to know the best comedian , His name is the Holy Spirit. Come on guys stop trying to force Gods Hand, he doesn't need your help. Idiots….

  4. great comedy routine. disappointing instructions for receiving the gospel. no one in the Bible became in Christ by bowing head, raising hand, coming down an aisle, saying a prayer. such a means is man's word not God's Word but it definitely is a great way to produce false converts.

  5. I attend the Rock church and love Miles and his staff but I have some disagreements:
    #1 Tithing is an old testament tradition yet the Rock automatically deducts %10 from all pastors paychecks. We should donate by faith not by law.
    #2 They practice faith healing on occasion for the audience which is an insult to God imo. Asking someone if their foot pain is gone is just using the power of suggestion. Bring in people who have a varifable condition and an x-ray machine if you really want to prove anything.
    #3 They try to prove the bible by science and not faith. The Earth is not 6k years old. Dinosaurs died out 65 mya and there is no evidence the planet was destroyed by a flood.
    I've brought these questions and many more to their pastors and all they say is "We don't allow debate." Overall it's a great church I just wish they would not try and back up the scriptures with modern day science because it just adds to the confusion.

  6. People have to stop getting caught up in the technicalities of the Bible. The purpose of having faith is that it is "the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen" in other words you have to just believe. The problem is, we want it to make some type of "logical" sense. If its logical there would be no need for faith. God doesn't operate in human terms or as humans think. For example its not nearly as important to be able to explain the parting of the Red Sea as it is to understand the why behind the story. The more we try to make things logical or get hung up on the "rules and regulations", we become more Pharisee-like and less Christ-like which is what and how we're supposed to be, if you're a Christian. To make a long story short, God cares less about our opinion and more about our faith and belief. No where in the Bible does He say, you gotta have opinion, He does, however say, that it takes faith.

  7. Michael is awesome. And to the detractors; remember Dr. "Patch" Adams, bringing laughter and joy to dying and hurting children? It's like that. And if you don't think God has a sense of humour; check the mirror. "A merry heart does good like a medicine." Your religion sucks!

  8. Ohhh….and one more thing. At the wedding in Cana, Jesus turned water into wine because it was a celebration (you know….a fun time). He wasn't showing off; and I'm sure He was smiling and congratulatory. Maybe He even danced…..oooohh ahhhhh sacrilige! Mind you, the Book of Zephaniah does say He sings over us. Please leave your "thumbs down" down and get a life…..HIS LIFE!

  9. I'm amazed that there are people who actually put a thumb down to someones testimony, I had to take a step backhand not get angry but pray for those who think this is not worthy of praise. Remember Disciples we are to walk or try and walk as Jesus did with that being said Michael Jr. thank you for allowing the Holy Spirit to speak through you and for those who put a thumbs down, Father forgive them for they know not what they do. God Bless you all

  10. I read that the gentleman who spoke first was from this Rock church which was founded by former NFL football player. I was shocked. I tend to think only average American citizens are capable of becoming Christians. I tend to think men and women in sports, acting, politics, singers, bands, comedians aren't capable of becoming Christians. I always think they're decadent and foul mouth. Good thing God isn't prejudice.

  11. First time hearing this gifted young man. Thank you!
    I almost missed it because it was couched behind some extreme, right wing, fake news media. Weird pairing giving his talk that expresses the need for honesty and integrity.

  12. This post is for Michael Jr… Michael, I'm figuring out my gift and God's (next) purpose for me as I listen to this! Also studying "Emotionally Healthy Spirituality" at my brick and mortar church. There are parts in the book that talk about figuring out your gift. I love how God brings these elements together!

  13. Michael Jr:
    Today is the first time I have ever heard about you. I first saw your Ted Talk 2013 on You Tube today. I didn't know you were a Christian but I just knew there was something different about you. Thank you for sharing your gift. Thank you for encouraging me to step out in my gifting. Most of all, thank you for allowing the Lord Jesus Christ to use you. And yes, Jeremiah 29:11 is the bomb scripture.

    God Bless you and your family!
