BLACK CHURCHES AND TEMPERING EXPECTATIONS

Thank you so much for visiting MaryPatriotNews.com – I’d like to tell you a story about worshipping God inside Hamilton Hill with powerful black saints; but before doing so I’d like to be clear about the purpose of this website. MaryPatriotNews.com was built as a response to the ever-growing tech censorship of Christians and other people of actual peaceful faiths along with American patriots who seek to preserve our U.S. Constitution and founding documents.

As a Christian, I am committed to Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God before anything else. My content is not intended to focus on populism or nationalism, but rather on discipleship.

REGARDING ARTICLES BY MARY – TEMPERING EXPECTATIONS

Ideally, I would follow an editorial calendar and post on specific days/times; however, that’s not really possible when I’m seeking only to write when led by God to do so. I thank you in advance for your understanding and grace in this matter. The site was never intended to be a sales tool, but rather a discipleship tool; which is why I’m hesitant to add any advertisements or affiliate marketing links. If I am to follow a schedule, I pray it’s of a liturgical nature rather than editorial.

POWERFUL BLACK VOICES

Have you ever attended a black church?
Those churches are filled with saints who are gifted in voice and movement. I can only compare it to Narnia-style rejoicing in confidence, strength and passion. Anyone who believes they too have a big voice surely would find this a treat.

Coming from a Southern Baptist background, I’m accustom to having to soften my voice to ensure I am not a distraction; but standing next to these lovely voices inside black churches never required me to soften. It was the only place (inside four walls) which simply allowed us to sing to our Lord without hindrances. It’s truly an awesome experience and something I often miss.

RACISM HAS NO PLACE IN GOD’S KINGDOM – PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO ACCUSE YOU OF THIS WHEN YOU ARE NOT RACIST LOVEY!

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE ~ PSALM 100

100 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. 2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Precious Lord, Take My Hand
Oh Holy Night

Today’s System Can’t Handle Righteous People Founded Upon Godly Wisdom

Sadly, the system now cannot handle intelligent, bright children rooted in Godly wisdom ready to take-on the world. Those children grow into ungovernable adults, entrepreneurs and risk takers grounded in their knowledge of who they are in relation to God’s Word and their enormous value to God – regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, disability or any other personal characteristic.

Did You Know God Loves to Showcase His Mercy?

How would we live our lives if we truly understood that our purpose is to love Him and to love His reflection in our neighbors? The truth is we are chosen, loved, welcomed, counted holy and blameless because of what Christ accomplished on the cross for us. Jesus said “It is finished” (John 19:30) and He alone paid the price for us to be received by His Father in eternity.

Christians, Can We Stop Romanticizing Marriage & Scriptures Already?

Don’t get me wrong, I believe healthy marriages are the foundation to any flourishing society and I’m in no way minimizing or chastising marriage or the need for children and families. I’m simply advocating for realism in our Christian literature and daily devotionals targeted towards women – especially as it relates to the relationship between Christ as the bridegroom and the church as the bride. It's like the Easter Bunny to Christ’s Resurrection or Santa Clause to the Birth of Christ - and it's the exact reason I prefer Oswald Chambers over others like Max Lucado.
