And since then, there have been pastors and social commentators that have challenged the ideologies of the black church and megachurches like New Birth Missionary in Lithonia, GA.  Pastor Jamal Bryant is no different in this aspect.  In the video below, he challenges the black church in regards to their handling of victims of all forms of abuse.  While I may not agree with everything he says, he made some good points.

Eddie Long’s Type of Ministry and the Black Church is Challenged by Jamal Bryant

I agree with Pastor Jamal Bryant in regards to the treatment of victims.  I wrote in a previous blog here,

that victims are not taken care of by the church, which may be the place where they were victimized. I think that if there is a Yah, then those lashes will be severe for those leaders in the church.  While I may not be able to quote the scriptures verbatim, I know that you can’t hurt the innocent and those who are astray and think good will come to you. I’ve seen it play out to many times, if karma isn’t real, you definitely respect what you sow.  Despite my personal feelings on Jamal Bryant, I think he said some good stuff.
