For those of you that frequent black barbershop’s you will know that this is a place where confessions are made and discussions are had. I am unable to speak on other types of shops in this manner, but the barbershop is a place to get saved, talk about racism and the female race.
Yesterday’s subject was on female pastors and the white man keeping the brother down. Of course, I played with the iPhone and looked into space trying to avoid eye contact, so that I would not be dragged into this discussion. I wanted my haircut and to leave as soon as possible. I was not successful, as someone insisted that I give my opinion on the matter. So there I was in the presence of one white guy, an Asian guy, a couple of Spanish guys, and the rest where black males.
The first argument was that female pastors are called by God to be there. The second argument was that because the white man made black men sleep with multiple black women, the black man’s mind changed creating today’s black male players. Also, the white man has made it easy for black women to be on welfare, which mandates the black male be removed from the home, thus making sure the black man stays in his plight. We know families are economically better off together than apart.
Of course, you cannot talk about the white man without the white woman. The white woman must go after the black men that are prosperous, so that when the black man dies off, the money returns into the white community, because this man’s wife is white. Full proof plan to keep the black man down.
Now, I hear all this in the barbershop. I know you must be thinking I have been here a while. Yes! Ladies and Gentlemen, I was in the barbershop for four hours. We started with the Civil War and went beyond.
So what was my response to these things? I simply said, the order that God has set for mankind is man, woman and child. The order that God has set for the church patterns the order of the family. When the church or family is out of order there is unnecessary suffering and a lack of blessings that flow. Because God desires that all things be done decently and in order. Judge for yourself, whether a women leading the church, with men present, can properly teach a man how to be the head of his house when she is the head of the church.
Secondly, I said, concerning the white man. Paul said, forgetting those things that are past, I press toward the mark of the high call of Christ Jesus. I refuse to allow another man’s chains to enslave my mind and my ability and access to be obedient to God. The white man getting you down and the existence of white privilege cannot stop a God, who is all-powerful and all knowing. What can stop God is sin. Stop sleeping with multiple women. Find one that loves God and shows resemblance of this profession. She does not have to be black.
By this time I am standing in the middle of the barbershop and close with this. Concerning white women. I have dated a few, even supervised white women and I would be hard pressed to believe the ones I was dating had in their mind, I can’t wait to bring this black man down. If they did, they were excellent manipulators.
If more time were spent being obedient to God and seeking his face, God would have to be obedient to his word and give you the desires of your heart. Stop making excuses for disobedience and just obey. The only thing getting you down is sin. Repent and give your life to Jesus.
