With the opening in theaters of the newly released feature film "Son of God," and the hit History Channel sequel, "The Bible," last year and subsequent DVD sales, it appears more people are paying the price to see Jesus. Will all this movie interest about the historical Jesus inspire some seekers to move from merely seeing Jesus on the big screen to confessing Him as Lord and Savior of their lives? It remains to be seen. What is true is that the number one reason new Christians give for confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is “I want to go to heaven when I die.” And one of the reasons Jesus died on the cross at Calvary was so they could get there. More than a ticket to the movies, Jesus Christ is your ticket to heaven! He is the answer to the pressing problem in our lives. Many people think discrimination is the reason for our societal problems. Discrimination does exist in the world, but ultimately, skin color is not the root issue.
Our problem is SIN
We don’t have a skin problem. We have a sin problem. We are...
S – Selfish
I – Incorrigible
N – Negative
The Bible declares, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23.
Jesus saves us from the...
1. Penalty of Sin (Romans 6:23)
2. Power of Sin (Romans 3:23)
3. and when we get to heaven, from the Presence of Sin (John 3:16)
How can you be saved and go to heaven? (More)

Postmodernism & The Impact of Black Gospel Music on Popular Culture:
CL Franklin, Aretha Franklin, Kirk Franklin & Beyond
Black gospel music historically has had a profound positive impact upon American culture, and indeed the world. During the Civil Rights era of the 1950s and 60s, gospel music made a significant impact in helping rid this nation of discrimination and segregation. Black gospel music birthed soul music that contained themes of love, unity, uplift, and empowerment. This short blog series examines the impact of postmodernism upon the entertainment industry, particularly gospel and secular music, and the impacts gospel music has had upon society across the eras of "the Franklins," C.L. Franklin, Aretha Franklin, Kirk Franklin, and beyond.
