Tithe or Pay Bills

Descendants of Jacob, I am the LORD All-Powerful, and I never change. That's why you haven't been wiped out, even though you have ignored and disobeyed my laws ever since the time of your ancestors. But if you return to me, I will return to you. And yet you ask, "How can we return?" You people are robbing me, your God. And, here you are, asking, "How are we robbing you?" I am the LORD All-Powerful, and I challenge you to put me to the test. Bring the entire ten percent into the storehouse, so there will be food in my house. Then I will open the windows of heaven and flood you with blessing after blessing. -Malachi 3:6-10

So, this is one of the few scriptures Christians use as their justification for tithing? Just from this passage alone and all of chapter 3 of Malachi I understand why Christians are so boastfully dedicated and fearfully disciplined about giving their ten percent to the Lord. From reading the above, one could conclude that God is some bookie enforcing his standards of payment and how he expects payment to be presented. God the bookie? The Numbers Man, and for those of you reading from a small country town: The Ball Ticket Man?

Within this Holy Scripture, God appears to be some bully who forces His believers to give to Him and fear Him – but He will give to the believer if he/she does right by Him. Strange? Well, I am always asking, who is this God? It is evident the God in this text is willing to give back to you if you give to Him. Sort of like, one hand washing the other. However, according to Christianity the Christian should not expect anything in return for their good deeds and obedience. One should just do right by Him and give back to humanity while here on earth. The reward comes later. Right? Heaven is the final destination for most Christians. Wait, he/she has to be saved. Forgot about that! The Pearly Gates is where they are trying to arrive despite their every day activities: Living their Life.

Life is what we have to live no matter what the bible says. We have to get up each and every morning. Some of us wake-up elated and others dread the day before it starts. From my reading and conversations with so many people, getting up happy is not as popular as hating the pending day. High gas prices. Rising food prices and escalating water bills. Can you believe the Georgia state representatives asked and required its residents to conserve water due to a severe drought, and now we will experience an increase in our water bills because the water utility companies are reporting a low profit as a result of our compliance? After doing what was asked (like doing what God demands), we now will be punished and/or short-changed. This is only one example that relates to the American economic dilemma.

Even with the United States financial crisis that’s affecting the working and middle class, God still demands His ten percent payment. He is like the effective bookie or ball ticket pusher. They do not care if your funds are running low. If ya owe ya owe. PERIOD. And, if you are a strict adherent to the bible you will produce that ten percent when the tithing tray arrives at your pew regardless of your bill situation at home. You better! God did say in the Book of Malachi that He “challenges you to put Him to the test.” Indicating one should pay the 10% because He will prove to you that He will restore you with a blessing. Are we sure about that?

Let’s pretend with an analogy:

God is a bank and you are a committed, God-fearing, and obedient Christian who has been paying your tithes for over 40 years diligently. In this sense, your credit is good with God/the bank which means you have built a secure and sufficient level of credit with God/the bank. With this level of credit you can go to any bank/God, and get a loan/your prayers answered to help you during these rough economic times. One would think since you have been God’s dynamic and devoted steward you have an extensive line of credit/potential blessings. Not the credit of getting into heaven. No, something more tangible and/or practical. Something you need on earth on that day you wake-up wondering if you should pay for gas or breakfast. Isn’t this the time you should go to God like you always do, and ask for Him to make a way out of no way? You are bowing down on bending knee – but this prayer is not being answered. God, not the bank, has denied your loan. Your credit is not good enough even after you have been giving to Him so “there will be food in His house”. Didn’t He promise you He would “open the windows of heaven and flood you with blessing after blessing”? Should not your blessing be money for a tank of gas? This is what you need as gas prices continue to climb and climb ($4.00 in Atlanta at the moment)? Aren’t we told that God gives us what we need, and not what we want?

Christians, if you are concerned about how your ends will meet I recommend you take your problems to your bookie/your God. Lay them on the altar as you are summons! He may be willing to front you some loot. He should considering you are a loyal tither. You deserve some credit. A handout. You did just give him your ten percent last Sunday and the Sunday before that.

Obama Criticism - He should not get a pass just because he is BLACK

Being a critic does not mean I do not support Obama. It simply means that I WILL treat him the same way I would another politician. With his "Change and Hope " speeches (getting old), Barack Obama is still a politician who has to pander and even lie to get elected. Just because he is black and I am black, does not mean I will become blind to that fact, or become an irrational member of this new church: Obama Full Gospel. With this, I would like to point out:

On May 22, 2008, Barack Obama decided to go to Boca Raton. He had a speaking engagement there. It was not surprising that he assured his audience he will be in their corner during his hopeful presidency. His audience: Jewish Americans. According to his aides and himself, he wanted to assure the American Jewish community that he will be 'their man', and that he will use every measure to protect Israel. All this protection for Israel - but none from cops who continue to bash in the heads of black men.

Now, I have a few questions. Has Barack singled out a black organization to go 'chat with'? Has he meet with the Congressional Black Caucus to discuss black America's issues? Didn't he refuse to attend the Tavis's function? I can't recall him going to the Urban League or even the NAACP to 'chat about our issues'. Seriously, I have not heard a thing. Perhaps, the one time I decided to forgo watching CNN and FOX a report of his presence was reported??

Barack is my boy because he is the best candidate of the three - but he is just like all the rest: A Politician. And, most politicians do not give a damn about our issues because our votes in the end will not secure he/she a victory.

How much longer will we be a fool for these politicians? I ain't gonna join the Barack Obama church like so many of us have. Getting all emotional and the Holy Spirit! I select to sit back, encourage my folk to register to vote and then vote, vote for him in the general election, and if he wins I will continue to do what a tax payer should do:

Make these Capitol Hill cronies do their job!

Are we, Americans, the Only People Receiving God’s Grace?

One could come to the conclusion that we are considering what our brothers and sisters around the world have to face each and every day. Senseless starvation. Horrifying tribal/ethnic violence. Unrelenting genocide. Unnecessary death and destruction from war. And, most recently catastrophic natural disasters. I am still trying to wrap my mind around: Over a 100,000 people being killed as a result of a cyclone (Myanmar). I just cannot get a grip on that one. A hundred thousand people is a small city. A town. Basically, this means if the cyclone would have struck land in Cambridge, MA back in the year 2000 all the residents would have been killed. Can you imagine that? I can’t! Also, the recent devastating earthquake in China that is expected to be the reason for more than 22,000 deaths is another reminder of the United States illusionary blessings.

God is Good in the minds of most Americans. We are told that He shields us from all types of harm – but wasn’t He unable to show His caring omnipresence down in the Gulf Coast a few years ago? Didn’t you expect Him to show-up at that depressing dome and un-Godly convention center? I did! Perhaps, I should not ask this question because He is always good and present according to Christians. Can’t you hear them: “God is Good. All the Time”. When I heard this the other day while at work I began to think about the earthquake video footage I saw of a Chinese little girl reaching for a soldier as he tried with all his strength to pull the girl from under layers and layers of broken cement. Her legs were trapped. She could only move her upper body – but the soldier abruptly had to halt the rescue effort because of aftershocks. Once - what some Christians say is the work of God, an earthquake, ceased no more could the precious girl be seen. She succumbed to the heavy rubble. Another person gone. Added to the 22,000 either dead or buried alive.

A good friend of mine who happens to be a devout Believer and Saint told me the other day (below) after I asked, “Why do Christians walk around saying, ‘God is Good’ as if He is only working on their behalf? I pressed more and asked, “I wonder if God is considered good to the people of Myanmar and China as we speak?”

Her response:

“First of all, China is a country that is well known for not believing in God and worshipping false idols. Christians that live in China have to go under ground in order to worship Christ. We wonder why things happen the way they happen. The false gods that they worship were where they were at during the time of this destruction. The God that I serve just allowed them to be taken over by the sin that they worship.”

Of course my theological radar went up! I was actually surprised that a “saved” person would basically say that God allowed for the natural disaster to occur because the Chinese are doing something that is supposedly against God: Worship of a False Idols. This also means that the point I made in my book was validated by this knowledgeable Christian. At least by this particular Christian’s belief system it was. I have always said and believed since I completed divinity school that God has been responsible and/or sanctioned death and destruction. Just read the uninspired man written bible from front to back, and you will discover His wrath. While I have said this time and time again – commentary after commentary (please don’t get bored w/ my beliefs) it is apparent that my understanding of the bible and God is in line with my Christian friend. Well, on this subject. Not much more! However, I hope she understands that what is
written in that bible has been in question for centuries. But, in her mind the bible is true. In my mind her belief is based on an inaccurate understanding of biblical scripture. If it is all true this means God slaughtered a group of First Born. Wow!

With this disagreement we still have an issue with theology: God’s punishment of the false idol worshiping Chinese is the reason the northwest area of the Sichuan province is under rubble. Seriously?

Rubble is what our minds have become if we honestly believe God favors the United States, and not other countries. We have bits and pieces of useless particles in our heads if we believe God is some maniac orchestrating and directing cyclones to strike land. This type of thinking causes several negative and misinformed thoughts/beliefs – but what it has done and continues to do is religiously elevate the United States as the Powerful Christian Nation while issuing condemnation to deeply spiritual places like Burma, Haiti, and other hard-hit countries.

North America’s ‘blessing of protection’ unfortunately encourages those Christians to believe:

Christianity is the only and righteous way.

That, my friend, is so ignorant.

Inspired my friend, the Christian. Here is what she told me when she had no where else to intellectually turn:

Whatever!!!!! Clearly, you are destined for HELL!!!!

Typical, but what should we expect from people who believe a man walked on water and rose after being killed? Jesus, the Whodini.

This blog is a reflection of what I deem to be true. It is an expression of my life in some regards. It is also a place where I am able to share black oriented truths and facts. Facts that are difficult to swallow. Time and time again, the truth about black Americans cannot be uttered by white Americans. Why? Even if they (white people) mention a true ‘positive’ about black people it is deemed disingenuous or patronizing. In my mind that is unfair; and we (black people) need to be able to face the truth about us even if it is negative no matter who tells it. I, a black man, have/will share with you the ‘goods’ of black America. I have on countless accounts – but I will also share the ‘bads’ that we in many cases inflict on ourselves. Like I have done with the commentary below. It was not written to blast black people. No, it is a truthful depiction of where we should not be as a group. Perhaps, we will read and move away from our self induced ignorance and neglect. Are ancestors are waiting so unlock the shackles!

12 Facts No One can say are Lies about Black Americans


1- African Americans have a higher risk of death from heart disease and strokes than White Americans. African Americans have a 20% higher chance of dying from heart disease. (Attributed to poor diet, the refusal to go to the doctor/free health clinic, and inability to handle stress effectively)

2- AIDS is the leading cause of death for African American men between the ages of 25-44. Additionally, Black women are 18 times more likely to be diagnosed with HIV in 2003 than white women. (Attributed to poor decision making and a lack of respect for individual life and our women)

What if this is true:

3- Many African Americans disregard or have contempt for education. Even well known personalities within the black race downplay the importance of obtaining an education. National Occurrence: Black kids tease other black kids who are doing well in school and say they are acting white. The affect of this is drastic. It encourages black kids to under achieve. (Attributed to lack of respect for the educational sacrifices made by our ancestors and a devaluation of education)

4 -Percentage of white tenth-graders in 2002 who attended high schools with security guards patrolling the hallways: 46.8%. Percentage of black tenth-graders in 2002 who attended high schools with security guards patrolling the hallways: 71.2% (Attributed to our tendency to handle our issues/disagreements with violence instead of meaningful dialogue – most of the disagreements are associated w/ “he disrespected me”)

5- Black women have decided to value education. They are in college at an alarming rate more than black men. (Attributed to the misguided ego of black men concerning education: ‘F*ck that. I ain’t going to no college.’)


6- During a 12 year study conducted by NCIA (National Center on Institutions and Alternatives) the following was examined/discovered (1985 to 1997), the U.S. prisoner population more than doubled from 502,376 to 1,240,962. Nationally, non-whites accounted for 70 percent of this growth in state and federal prisons. This study was a landmark study because it started the national debate: Whites receive lighter sentences than non-whites. However, the fact remains that blacks are the ones committing more crimes thus the reason they are caught up in the judicial system. (Attributed to poor decision making while not focusing on obeying the law and seeking an easy way to get ahead)

7- The National Institute of Drug Abuse estimated that while12 percent of drug users are black; they make up nearly 50 percent of all drug possession arrests in the U.S. One could ask, ‘Why are the police arresting the users?’ Valid question – but shouldn’t they be arrested if it is against the law to be in possession of an unlawful narcotic? Yes, we can state that white men and women use cocaine, and don’t get arrested. They do. Nonetheless, who is this black fool making the decision to smoke crack when they know it is HIGHLY addictive? The reason police started targeting crack users and crack drug dealers is because of how it destroys communities and leads to additional crime they, the police, are not interested in tackling. Ride through the urban areas of Baltimore. See what crack/heroin has done to the communities. (Attributed to black people not finding a way to seek peace and solitude in a healthy and/or lawful way – why not workout to release stress instead of getting high off highly addictive drugs? Drink a damn beer!)


8- Just go to the grocery store. In a Kroger you are bound to witness a black parent (usually a mother because daddy is no where to be found) yelling at her kid instead of talking with them to rectify misbehavior. Ride the train on the Black routes. One will witness a black child being humiliated in the presence of strangers: ‘I’m gonna BEAT your azz for crying.’ Go to parent-teacher conferences, and you will witness black parents arguing with the teachers (when they know their child is WRONG) who are showing more attention to their kids than the black parents are. (Attributed to poor parenting, and not caring about becoming a better parent)

9- Click on the link below, watch the brief video, and then ask yourself: Why did momma allow her daughter to leave the house this way?

(Attributed to the fact too many black parents do not care about the moral progression of their children)


10- Think about this statement that is said time and time again by TOO MANY black men among the working class: “Mexicans taken all the jobs.” Ignorance at its highest level! How about your black azz don’t won’t to work to earn a living for yourself and your family? Martin L. King, Jr. said, “If I had to be a street sweeper I would be the best one at it. (paraphrased)” These blacks refuse to work in jobs that the Mexicans are in – but complain about being broke - then will go and rob a decent black man trying to make it in this world honestly and respectfully. (Attributed to blacks creating excuses for their shiftlessness)

Mismanagement of Money

11- Sprewell, the rim czar and former b-ball player, foreclosed on a home Monday, May 12, 2008. The holder of the mortgage, RBS Citizens Bank, told Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge David Hansher that Sprewell owes $320,284. According to River Hills records, the house is assessed at $610,000 and has an estimated fair market value of $667,980. Sprewell bought the house in 1994 for $405,000. Here he was a famous b-ball player, but failed to manage his millions. Hire a damn financial planner. Idiot! An example of good management of finances: Kevin Garnet placed himself on a modest allowance so he would not RUN THROUGH his money. (Attributed to our false understanding of what is important - rather have things instead of investing – and our neglect of addressing our poor self concepts)

Inappropriate Support of the Wrong Black People

12- The NAACP gave R Kelly, a known child molester, a major award. Thousands of blacks supported Michael Vick while understanding he was DEAD WRONG; and then some of us blamed the white man. (Attributed to STUPIDITY)

I said it! Now, Run Tell That!!!

I love black people. I dislike those within my race who destroy it for good black people.

What would you have done if you were present?

Part 1

I have decided to use this question that actually began as an email survey and a YouTube video as my 'commentary' for this week. Please watch the video and then submit your answer/response in the comment section.

When we have a moment to ingest this pathetic scene of disrespect, ‘people paralysis’, and a possible moment to converse I will later share another video that will probably help us with putting human/animal behavior and reasoning, the past, and the present in context.

My intentions are good:

Hopefully, this effort will start a meaningful conversation, encourage someone to be a better parent, and/or become a mentor for our troubled youth.

The Video:


What would you have done if you were present?

Multiple Choices:

A. Beat that girls behind
B. Call the Police
C. Intervened to assist
D. Nothing

Be honest.

*By the way, feel free to submit a combination of answers, or a commentary.

Part 2

No Mo Buffaloes

First, let me inform you that the response from the video of the young lady who terrorized the elderly woman was overwhelming. I, honestly, could not keep up with the varying responses. Some of you decided to comment with your own commentary. That I thoroughly enjoyed! And, the majority of you selected to respond with A, B, C, D, or a combination of all multiple choices. Results below.

On this one I was not trying to single out negative behavior. Promote “black foolishness” – like I was accused of doing. All I wanted us to do was analyze the details of the video. For example, the freestyle rap lyrics from the obvious Lost Soul, her clothing, the body language of others on the train, and the old woman’s demeanor – but what surprised me the most was the following blurt from the deranged or possibly SANE female:

“You that same Ni**er I been looking for who raped me.”

What was that allegation all about?

I definitely was not surprised by the inactivity of the other riders. Nope, not at all. Not responding to this type of behavior is common place on Marta and various other public transportation systems. I believe most of us are just afraid to utter a word. Afraid our life will be snuffed-out by a fool. I can read the headline, ‘John Smith tries to save old lady from attack on train. Killed in process.’ Who wants to die on a dirty train? No one on that train was interested in protecting or dying for the elderly lady. Even the young man that ended up mushing the girl did not – but he was quick to respond when he felt ‘disrespected’. So, in fact, not one single person actively intervened on the behalf of the woman who could have been your mother or grandmother. NO ONE.

The final reminder of how disturbed some of our mental consciousness can be was when the girl began to shout Glenwood, and others started to yell West side.

Are we so empty in mind and spirit that we have to claim ‘territories’ or geographical locations of a city to attach rep to our shallow and limited mentalities while never acknowledging with self our own value? ‘The Dec (short for Decatur) is my hood’. People like this throw trash all over their hood – but The Dec is their hood?? So stupid! This preposterous gang-type ownership has been going on for years. When in fact the only places we own in our hoods are chicken wing spots (10 x 5 trailers) and car washes in ‘shopping plazas’ with 2-3 auto parts stores, numerous Asian owned hair care product stores, a Chinese food hole in the wall, and barber shops with unlicensed barbers and stylist. And, we are progressing?


A. Beat that girls behind - 9
B. Call the Police - 17
C. Intervened to assist - 22
D. Nothing - 4

After you think about the results, the actions of the brute for a female, the terrified senior, and the remaining paralyzed folk again please watch the complete video (8 minutes) at the link below. And, then please email me back with your response to this:

What connection am I trying to make with this new video and the one with the Lost Soul? (Do understand that I certainly know we are all thinkers, so no insulting of intelligence intended)

Only one person responded within the numerous commentary responses with an element of: Seeking the Power of the Lord. I thought that was interesting:

“…my first reaction would’ve been to first start praying for God to break that EVIL spirit that was on that girl.”

Where ya at Christians? What would have Jesus done?

On this blog ever attempt is made to present the TRUTH while understanding that TRUTH is subjective. I believe Muata has done just that. His truths may not be yours – but he is dedicated to voicing his beliefs and allowing others to share theirs. This way, there will be a meaningful exchange of information, education, rhetoric, and ranting. As for this posting, Muata has decided to share a few TRUTHFUL details about Jeremiah Wright since the mass media has failed to give him a fair shake.

Patriotism or Hatred: You Decide

In 1961, a young African-American man, after hearing President John F. Kennedy's challenge to, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country," gave up his student deferment, left college in Virginia and voluntarily joined the Marines.

In 1963, this man, having completed his two years of service in the Marines, volunteered again to become a Navy corpsman. (They provide medical assistance to the Marines as well as to Navy personnel.) The man did so well in corpsman school that he was the valedictorian and became a cardiopulmonary technician. Not surprisingly, he was assigned to the Navy's premier medical facility, Bethesda Naval Hospital, as a member of the commander in chief's medical team, and helped care for President Lyndon B. Johnson after his 1966 surgery. For his service on the team, which he left in 1967, the White House awarded him three letters of commendation.

What is even more remarkable is that this man entered the Marines and Navy not many years after the two branches began to become integrated.

While this young man was serving six years on active duty, Vice President Dick Cheney, who was born the same year as the Marine/ sailor, received five deferments, four for being an undergraduate and graduate student and one for being a prospective father.

Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, both five years younger than the African-American youth, used their student deferments to stay in college until 1968. Both then avoided going on active duty through family connections.

Who is the real patriot? The young man who interrupted his studies to serve his country for six years or our three political leaders who beat the system? Are the patriots the people who actually sacrifice something or those who merely talk about their love of the country?

After leaving the service of his country, the young African-American finished his final year of college, entered the seminary, was ordained as a minister, and eventually became pastor of a large church in one of America’s biggest cities.

This man is Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the retiring pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ!

America: A Big Fat Azz Lie

Perhaps Jeremiah Wright's truthful and hoity-toity way of speaking which is littered with black liberation theology and nationalism will spread to other black churches? It needs to. We need to be fired-up about our socio-economic lot. How we are viewed by the United States government. What we should be doing to rectify our condition. Where the responsibility should be placed. And, most importantly we must identify and encourage responsible preachers to shout from the mountain tops like Moses did on Mt. Sinai: “You, Nation of Israelites, are forsaking God.” But in this contemporary day the following will be more accurate: ‘America is a big fat azz lie!’

Everything about this devious country began with lies and betrayal e.g. eradication of the Native Americans and their culture. Maybe if the black church takes this uncharted road we will have more educated blacks than so called saved blacks. Now, ask yourself which one is more beneficial and valuable to the race: Saved or Educated? In my small, egotistical, and antagonistic frame of reference education should be your answer! Black people do not need another person to run to the altar after the Doors of the Church are opened. It will be just another lost soul seeking Jesus’ saving grace with no substance. However, think about the gained strength and power one has when they receive the truth pertaining to America and its evils. No more will you trust an oppressive system that gives you nothing but grief. No more will you wonder why other countries hate Americans. No more will you be tricked into believing that this government really wants your opinion via a vote. No more will you be a hypnotized zombie walking around here believing America is the next best thing since Kentucky Fried Chicken. You will be equipped with useful knowledge and/or rhetoric that has more thump than most Psalms reading.

Before this becomes and all out blast of the church let me shift back to my Rage Against the Machine.

America in all her glory cannot shake the truth. The truth always comes in the most unique and incapacious forms e.g. Jesus. And, the truth is usually connected to the most controversial and unwelcoming figures e.g. Muhammad Ali, Farrakhan, and Wright. One, in particular, was Jeremiah, the biblical prophet. He was known for his prophetic message not being heard by those Israelites. They were so stubborn! The children of Israel did not take heed to Jeremiah. No, they disregarded what he divinely predicted. God even warned Jeremiah, "You will go to them; but for their ego, they will not listen to you.”

How fitting. How perfect the story of Jeremiah is considering the most recent news surrounding Jeremiah Wright?

“They will not listen.” If you are a believer in the bible please note that this is God talking.

So many detractors of Wright claim he is seeking attention. Searching for the spotlight. Grandstanding. The biblical Jeremiah was rightfully accused of wanting attention also. He went so far as to walk around with yoke on his upper body with the intention to attract attention. I guess both Jeremiahs were/are wanting to be heard. Heard in a way where a change will come. Unfortunately, white 'conditional change-seekers' who were fully behind Barack Obama are now re-thinking their allegiance. While black people stand and shout: 'We believe what Jeremiah Wright is saying and we select to stay in Barack's corner.'

Meanwhile, those flaky white backers of Barack are upset. Offended by the TRUTH. My momma always told me, "if the truth makes you angry you are guilty."

Hermeneutic Transfer:

Today America is the modern day Israelite nation. Not listening to the broken hearted prophet, Jeremiah Wright. Mr. Wright’s heart is shattered. He loved his country as a Marine and as a Navy Seaman – but what did America do: Turned her back on him and all the other black men who signed-up for this terrorist organization we call the United States Armed Forces. So, when Jeremiah Wright links America to the KKK white people and some blacks should not be offended. The KKK has functioned as a terrorist group for years. The KKK is racist. The KKK does not care about anyone who believes differently than them. The KKK is pompous. The KKK are oppressors. They both - appear to have similar traits and behaviors. Right?

America is a big fat azz lie. Nothing will change that. But, what will help is the prophetic voice of Jeremiah Wright, others like him, and the Book of Jeremiah. I suggest America’s gatekeepers read this story of a man who was told by God to pray no more for His people. This simply indicates that God was frustrated with His people then; and He continues to be frustrated because they, white America, will not listen to today’s Jeremiah.

So, the question could be:

Should Wright sit down and shut-up like Jeremiah eventually did?

Another question:

Why are we, black folk, still sneaking around like scared slaves with our true feelings in order to be accepted by the White Man? So sad!

Mr. Larikus, America has not reconciled or changed the lie. And, Barack Obama will NOT change anything until they do!
