  1. We as a ppl must VOTE and vote on local, state and federal levels. It is imperative that we understand the importance of voting. It will begin the change of the systemic devalues of democracy and injustice and permit the united fairness of justice that we need for all Americans.

  2. There is no social justice in the bible. God's justice is His judgement, which none of us want. We are to focus on Christ because anything and anyone else is of the devil. The devil sings song man loves to hear and we will be deceived. When you put your race, culture, family before Christ, you are deceived.

  3. We should stop using our skin color to divide us but be united in Christ. If we participate in further division against one another, we're helping satan. Sin is sin, whether it's racism, abortion, rape, pedophilia, etc. You should hate all forms of sin and preach repentance. If you're protesting and have not repented of your own sins, you are not right with God either. Your own sin condemns you! Repent!

  4. Just an FYI

    George Floyd’s Criminal Past

    George Floyd moved to Minneapolis in 2014 after being released from prison in Houston, Texas following an arrest for aggravated robbery

    On May 25, 2020, Floyd was arrested for passing a counterfeit $20 bill at a grocery store in Minneapolis

    He was under the influence of fentanyl and methamphetamine at the time of arrest

    Floyd has more than a decade-old criminal history at the time of the arrest and went to jail for atleast 5 times

    George Floyd was the ringleader of a violent home invasion

    He plead guilty to entering a woman’s home, pointing a gun at her stomach and searching the home for drugs and money, according to court records

    Floyd was sentenced to 10 months in state jail for possession of cocaine in a December 2005 arrest

    He had previously been sentenced to eight months for the same offense, stemming from an October 2002 arrest

    Floyd was arrested in 2002 for criminal trespassing and served 30 days in jail

    He had another stint for a theft in August 1998

  5. Before we can vote Bishop, we first have to "study the facts, beliefs and statistics" before we vote. If we blindly vote based on color, culture or creed, we have "all" been given an injustice. It's like the blind leading the blind. You are a man of such influence and I hope you are doing your research about your government and seeking for "all" people justice and truth. There is a hidden agenda with the NWO that I am sure you have at least heard about being in your position. There is a vast amount of corruption going on behind the scenes that is fulling the narrative of these pandemics, these race wars and the racial divide and I would hope and pray that you sir, are doing your due diligence as not only a community leader but as a Man for Christ who is our ultimate judge sir, to stand on TRUTH and RIGHTEOUSNESS for The KINGDOM OF GOD sake rather than succumb to SATAN our enemy. Regardless of race, we seek ye first "THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS" and everything else will fall in line. And as children of God that should be our objective.

  6. in my opinion this was planned by the NWO as were many of the others to foment civil unrest after the lockdowns to further destroy the economy of the US. This is a manipulation – Problem – Reaction – Solution… you have to think Big Picture.

  7. Something is not right. Why is George Floyd’s picture on a large poster (see 5/17 Obama Foundation twitter page) a week before he was killed? He was an unknown at that time! Are we being played?

  8. Where is the OUTRAGE for these babies that keep dying
    Zya Singleton
    Meleah Davis
    Bella Edwards
    Zymere Perkins
    Ethan Bates
    Faye Swetlik
    Taliyah Marsman
    Lyric Jones –
    Anya Garrett

    Where is their justice ? The anger for these babies! Why are we still killing kids? Where is their riot and marches !?

  9. Good word Bishop. The church is using scripture as cliche and not for the power that the WORD carries. We are disconnect from the meaning and lesson because we choose to not connect or just not spiritually connected to the word.

  10. This is NOT ONLY about BLM, or George Floyd. This is about the inequality, and oppression of the people around the world. The police state in America, and the elite's views worldwide that they can make whatever laws they want, and do whatever they want without consequence is what the people have seen constantly for decades. Currently we have two classes of people in the world. 1, the elite that are free to do whatever they want, they control the banks, corporations, and pay off governments for their own benefit. 2. The working class that see their human rights being oppressed, or ignored altogether are frustrated, and are now lashing out. They see their incomes ability to sustain their lives being eroded to the point that many working families are forced to live with other family members, or are now living on the streets. This is what I see as the root of the problems now being protested throughout the world. This is the problem that must be resolved before the situation grows out of control.

  11. Our injustice have been far too long, so now is the time to take a stand against it and do all we can to get justice at a better stance of fairness for blacks and people of color. Enough is Enough and I appreciate this video. Solidarity, solidarity, solidarity.

  12. That policemen in Minnesota; Dylan Root; Rodney King, all of it; in probably every case; we see a self proclaimed Caesar attempting to conquer their version of the inferior barbarian ; seen from the narrow view of a backwards mind completely outside of History .

  13. Rescue the perishing;
    don’t hesitate to step in and help.
    If you say, “Hey, that’s none of my business,”
    will that get you off the hook?
    Someone is watching you closely, you know—
    Someone not impressed with weak excuses.
    that also includes the UNBORN!

  14. George Floyd was a criminal :
    Back in 2007, when George Floyd was 35 years old, he was the leader of a robbery where he and a gang of men forcefully entered a pregnant woman’s house. A clever scheme was thought out beforehand. To encourage the woman to open her door Floyd would pose as a water department worker. He dressed in a blue shirt to emulate the outfit of a worker, he then knocked on the woman’s door. The plan worked and she opened the door, but she realized quickly that Floyd wasn’t from the water department. She tried to close the door but George Floyd grabbed hold of it and held on. As he stood holding the door open, a Ford Explorer van with five of Floyd’s friends pulled up to the house. This, of course, was part of the plan, and they rushed the property. Once they had entered the house one of the robbers pulled out a gun and pointed it towards the woman’s pregnant stomach. As this was going on, Floyd started to search the house looking drugs, money, or jewelry.

    GF was a known criminal, not an innocent black man who was mistreated.

    Think of the woman who was the victim above, and how she must feel when all these protestors are saying "I am George Floyd" …. all these people are defending a criminal and calling this man a hero, a martyr. No no no!! He was an evil man.

  15. America is nothing more than the choices and habits of the people that comprise it. WE have a lot of work to do, but it is possible to move forward. It is everyone's responsibility to love and protect one another and I pray to Christ Almighty for the strength and resolve to do so!

  16. Wow wow wow, this is the conversation I've been needing to hear!!!! Bishop you are speaking the words that have been burning in my heart! Thank you! Hallelujah!!!! I SO want the body of Christ to lead this charge to DO JUSTICE in this country- especially where blackness is concerned! Lord, bring us together like NEVER before!!!! Black AND white and all POC together in the name of JESUS, let us know our local and state leaders, let US elect our local, state and national leaders and hold them accountable to change the unacceptable and deplorable injustices in the policies and practices that go against the Word of God- that we honor Him first, and we love one another as we love ourselves. God bless you both and I thank God for you and I am in this fight with you. Thank you Jesus! Your will be done, Lord!!! We know your Word does not return void and the Kingdom of God IS at hand! Hallelujah!!!!!!

  17. Nobody agrees what would happen to George Floyd was OK in that he deserved the decency and respect inhumane treatment that everyone deserves but what's the problem is that people are suming that this is some type of systematic thing that's going on in that most police officers are culprits and that's highly untrue because a few incidents comic camera Doesn't determine the whole nature of the entire police force.
