Reading the title to this blog,might make you ask what the hell is going through this mans head this early in the morning.
Without any doubt I believe God is real,I just don't want God running certain things in my life, I just want God handling the big things  and leave the rest to me.
One of those things I can't seem to let go of  is giving other people the right to be!
One of the things about my personality is the inability at times to allow others to do their own thing.
That trait comes from my own experiences in life,not wanting to see others go down a path to nowhere or trouble.
Some how in today's culture many have been convinced that old folks experiences are not needed or welcome.
After reading another persons blog this morning who always seem to write about their church and activities,I began to question what Black person worships like this.
What happen to the Christianity  I enjoyed growing up?
You know the foot stomping spirit driving religion that made you feel like whatever it is on your plate of problems,there was a solution.
So many intelligent young Black folks have had their religion and spirits hijacked in my opinion.
Why are so many of our young dismissing the spirit of our ancestors for the spirit of the mega churchs and off beat paths of spirituality?

James, it was told to us in 2 Timothy, and elsewhere in the Bible that people would turn towards all kinds of sin.

I love reading the Message Bible's translation of certain scriptures:
1-5Don't be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They'll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they're animals. Stay clear of these people.

But remember Bigmac, that there is always a remnant--our culture and spirit remains in spite of how it looks. And as Psalm 37 NKJV said:
34 Wait on the LORD,
And keep His way,
And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power,
And spreading himself like a native green tree.
36 Yet he passed away,[a] and behold, he was no more;
Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

The house builded on sands will fall in the storm and great will be the fall of it Matt 7:24-27

Peace brother

I think when you learn God is control and knows what is best; you will let go of certain things:)

I've said the same thing myself time and time again. I've wondered aloud and to myself again and again and again.
