Gun sales are up across St. Louis since the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent nights of violence.

Sales have quadrupled at ‘Metro Shooting’ in Bridgeton according to owner Steven King.

President Obama released the following statement about the death of Michael Brown, Jr.:

The death of Michael Brown is heartbreaking, and Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to his family and his community at this very difficult time.  As Attorney General Holder has indicated, the Department of Justice is investigating the situation along with local officials, and they will continue to direct resources to the case as needed.  I know the events of the past few days have prompted strong passions, but as details unfold, I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding.  We should comfort each other and talk with one another in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.  Along with our prayers, that’s what Michael and his family, and our broader American community, deserve.

Who’s listening to the President? Who’s dying?

Faith without works is dead.

Prayer moves nothing in the presence of a refusal to change.

Change what: Moving in your own understanding, rather acknowledging God in EVERY way and move in perfect obedience to his will.

What will? First start with spending your money constructively. Every dime and every penny toward constructive change.

Someone is acting. Are you acting constructively?

Robin Williams – The Invisible Story

Yeah! Literally, it’s like possession all of a sudden you’re in, and because it’s in front of a live audience, you just get this energy that just starts going…But there’s also that thing it is possession. In the old days you’d be burned for it…But there is something empowering about it. I mean, it is a place where you are totally it is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, where you really can become this other force. Maybe that’s why I don’t need to play evil characters [in movies], ’cause sometimes onstage you can cross that line and come back. Clubs are a weird kind of petri dish environment. I mean, that’s where people can get as dark as they can in comedy in the name of comedy, be talking about outrageous stuff and somehow come out the other side. I mean, that’s one place where you really want to push it” (Robin Williams, “Robin Williams,” by James Kaplan, US Weekly, January, 1999, p. 53).

Depression can have many sources, but has only one ultimate remedy. True joy can only come from a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and the infilling of His Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is manifold and includes love and joy. Let us remember that there are a lot of hurting people out there like Robin Williams, who are filled with hopelessness and despair. May God make us sensitive to their needs and help us to show them His great love through our concern, willingness to help and sharing the gospel.

Please pray for the celebrities/mediums in Hollywood and so many in the music industry, that they would repent and find deliverance from the demonic forces that are exploiting them to wickedly influence the masses and come to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the King of kings and Lord of lords! Pray for those who clamor for their “entertainment,” and are adversely and incrementally affected. May the Lord guard each of our own hearts, as we seek discernment and seek to avoid the spiritual land mines that threaten our lives and those of our loved ones. May the Lord abundantly bless you as you seek His face and His glory!

Tensions are high in Ferguson, Missouri and a large police presence is on hand after a teenager was shot to death by a police officer. Police are asking the community to stay calm and allow the investigation to proceed. Not long after Brown’s death, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson went on record saying that Wilson – whose name, at the time, was unknown to the public – went on paid administrative leave in the aftermath of Brown’s death, citing as justification social media threats to Wilson’s life and that of his family. But now, over one week later, the public continues to wonder, Where in the world is Darren Wilson?

Le’Andria Johnson Gospel Singer Pregnant Outside of Marriage

johnson, roger

Sunday’s Best Season 4 winner, Leandria Johnson, 29 a single mother of three is pregnant. Not married and still sleeping around while proclaiming to love Jesus. Singing gospel songs of worship and fooling people into believing she is annointed. No different then people like Katy Perry who started off with a Christian CD and others.

Watch out and beware. Hear these words carefully about the seed sower. Some seeds fell on thorny ground and they received the Word, but the cares of life choked and killed it. This person produces no fruit. How many young girls will look up to her and believe Jesus is signing off on sin? How many will be fooled into believing that you can have the world and Jesus too?

Listen: “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. – Matthew 7:13-16

University president takes $90,000 pay cut to give 24 minimum wage workers a raise

universityA university president is putting his money where his mouth is.

Raymond Burse, who leads Kentucky State University as interim president, will give up $90,000 of his salary so that 24 low wage workers on campus can earn $10.25 an hour.

“I did it to bring the lowest wage employees up to a level where I think they should be,” said Burse. “”These are the people who work hard and make the place look good.”

Many of the workers including custodians, grounds keepers, and clerical workers were earning the minimum wage in Kentucky, which is $7.25 an hour.

Burse, whose annual income is about $350,000, said he thought for about eight weeks about the decision to take the pay cut and then brought it to the university’s board. He described the board’s reaction as “shock’ when they found out. Cont…
