The Pimp of Baltimore and his (latest) Rogue’s Gallery

hat tip to reader “CW” for the scoop on this story…

I’ve been really busy with life lately (work, family, evangelism, sleep), and I appreciate the notes inquiring about my well being. Glory to God – all is well. 

I’m sad/not surprised to see that “Dr.” Jamal “the Prince Pimp of Baltimore” Bryant hasn’t been wasting his time repenting before the Lord for his endless false teaching, or stepping down from church leadership until he has received biblical counseling for his adulterous, baby making (outside of marriage) ways while I was away.

Looks like the POB has just wrapped up his latest “Empowerment Conference” – and take a look at his latest rogues gallery:

Click on the picture for a larger view, but allow me to introduce you to (and/or remind you of) some of these infamous faces:

1st Row:

2nd Row:

3rd Row:

  • Omarosa: A contestant from a Donald Trump reality show (twice) who relishes in the villainous character that she created several years ago. She was recently seen fighting and cursing on TV (fast forward to the 7:20 mark)
  • Mase: former (and current) rapper who “found God” after fleeing Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, came to Atlanta to start a church and got arrested in shortly thereafter for a minor traffic accident while (allegedly) looking for an…um…”encounter” in a part of Atlanta know for it’s transvestite population – and is now featured rapping on “Best I Ever Had” – a popular song about a rappers best sexual partners (fast forward to the 00:50 mark to hear Paster Mase spit rhymes).

4th Row:

I’m not very familiar with the other speakers at this get-together, but I have to believe that they are either (a) oblivious to the degenerates on the program with them, or (b) in agreement with the degenerates on the program with them. At this point, it’s safe to say that Christ crucified, salvation through Christ with no “help” from sowing seeds, or holiness WAS NOT ON THE AGENDA.

The fruit that these people have cultivated should be a clear indication to STAY AWAY FROM THEM – no matter how they pretend to be “wise” and “deep” in seeking to “empower” you:

Matthew 7:15-23 (New American Standard Bible)

15“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

 16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?

 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.

 18“A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.

 19“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

 20“So then, you will know them by their fruits.

 21“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.

 22“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’

 23“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’

Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy…

hat tip to Melvin over at Pulpit Pimps for this depiction of Jamal, twisting as usual…

As I mentioned previously, last week was the bi-annual “Pay A Pimp A Dollar” week over at TBN (The Baal Network). And true to form, they trotted out one of their top earners: “Dr.” Jamal “The Prince Pimp of Baltimore” Bryant.

It seems as though the good “Dr.” got tired of getting into your voting booth and your bedroom, so he returned to doing what he’s most comfortable doing (well, what he’s most comfortable doing with his clothes on)

…getting into your wallet:

hat tip to our brother Matt Green, who has more videos like this at his YouTube page

Ahh, who can forget such sage wisdom from the Word of God, like:

You are marked for destiny when you are broke with expensive taste

And of course, Jamal wouldn’t be the Prince Pimp of Baltimore if he didn’t butcher a little scripture, right? Let’s see, the entire crux of the story of Joseph and his dream in Genesis 37, 39, 40, and 41 is that we can all drive nice cars and buy nice things?

Silly me, I always thought that Joesph’s story was a lesson in overcoming adversity, moral guilt (regarding Joseph’s treatment at the hands of his brothers), repentance (their return to him and his forgiveness of their sins toward him), and God’s sovereignty (using Joseph to feed a nation) – an early shadow of Christ’s experiences.

I guess I’m just not deep enough.  

Oh well, at least Prince Pimp Jamal can tell a good tale…and shake a few coins loose in the process.

Pimpin’ ain’t easy…

A Pimp Dispenses Relationship Advice?

Now that he’s reconciled with his wife, it appears that Jamal “The Prince Pimp of Baltimore” Bryant is dispensing sex advice to the men of his church.

Jamal hosted a “bible study” for the men of his church entitled “How To Love A Black Man” – and he was assisted by a woman who is a New York Times Best Selling Author by the name of “Zane”. What, you’ve never heard of Zane before? Well, Zane writes very graphic and very detailed erotic literature (I linked to wikipedia because I can’t link to her website – without putting a parental disclaimer in place) – and she produces a softcore porn show on Cinemax. 

Interestingly, you can’t find many details about this event – although you can see the details of all of the other “Men’s Month” events on the website. Pimp Jamal has been taking some flack for having a lady who writes dirty books address the men of his congregation so maybe he tried to downplay Zane’s participation.

Anyway, I find it odd that a man with so many sexual demons found it necessary to host a “bible study” with a woman who writes smut. If you recall, Jamal is an adulterer and a “baby daddy” to infants outside of his marriage who (allegedly) likes girls in their late teens.

Here’s an official description of Pimp Jamal’s series – and I just had to emphasize interesting notes in bold:

A woman doesn’t need to work harder to please a man because every woman has what it takes to get the love of any man… And there is nothing else better than a BLACK MAN AND WOMAN IN LOVE. The problem lies in how to love him, keep him and understand him.

The role of a woman who is connected to a man of destiny is to condition and prepare him for his opportunity. Be sensitive to his dreams, and help him shine without minimizing him even though you make more money. Invest in making him look good.

When a Black Man captures the heart of a lover, he longs for pleasure not pressure. He was never conditioned for chaos, conflict or confrontation. Dr. Bryant delivers effective relationship advice with wit on how to pamper, feed, and love your man. Discover how you can condition your man and freely check him; assist him without him feeling disrespected and demeaned.

Every woman has near limitless power to give and get the very best spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally in a relationship with a Black Man.

Are you kidding me? Is this idiot essentially trying to compete with Iceberg Slim in telling women how to keep dogs like him around them?

Wow – maybe if someone had told Mrs. Pimp of Baltimore of her responsibilities in “satisfying and nurturing” Jamal, then he wouldn’t feel the need to seek “comfort” outside of his marriage with young girls in his congregation.

I’m sure there were men at this “bible study” who were earnestly seeking the Lord  – yet they found themselves being “taught” by a pimp and a Jezebel:

1 Peter 2:11-12 (New American Standard Bible)

11(A)Beloved, (B)I urge you as (C)aliens and strangers to abstain from (D)fleshly lusts which wage (E)war against the soul.

 12(F)Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they (G)slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, (H)glorify God (I)in the day of [a]visitation.

Could somebody get close enough to Pimp Jamal to remind him of what he’s supposed to be doing as a preacher.

Oh, and tell him to go sit down somewhere until he can learn how to preach the Word and not present his fleshly philosophical garbage.

The Prince Pimp Of Baltimore Endorses Obama

***hat tip to my brother over at the blog Eric’s Corner for sending me the video and getting my blood pressure elevated…once again***

I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!

“Dr.” Jamal Bryant, the prince pimp of Baltimore, adulterer and “baby daddy” (to a young lady who attends/attended his church club – and was allegedly 17 years old at the time of conception!) has taken a moment to stop declaring that he’s “still the man” to weigh in on the presidential race (i.e. line up for the anointing of Barack“new jesus”).

C’mon, you didn’t think the prince pimp would endorse the evil white radical Republicans, did you?

The prince pimp took to the pulpit to officially declare that Barack“new jesus” is in fact our coming redeemer 🙄

Allow me a moment to wipe the dung off of me that the prince pimp was throwing around…

Now, let’s break it down:

We’re in the midst of a recession and many of us are scrambling just to make the paycheck stretch itself out so that there’s enough food for our children, so that the lights will remain on

I love how these pimps say “we’re struggling”  when in fact their demands on your money are contributing factors in your struggling in the first place! Jamal’s children are fed (ALL of them) and his lights come on effortlessly. He makes well over $350K per year, so don’t think he “feels your pain”.

…Cindy McCain comes out in a $300,000 outfit…bespeckled with pure diamonds from Russia…any many of our citizens can’t afford diamonds and are paying off student loans

Don’t forget folks that this degenerate adulterer/baby daddy/ pimp drives a leased 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur (or at least he did last year) – valued at $140,000 (used). Also, he bragged about his “custom tailors on different continents” when he was defending his pastorship in light of his adulterous ways. He’s got the…um….cojones’  to say this in front of a crowd that throws their hard earned money at his feet? I’m no McCain fan, but this clown is in no position to call them out!

…Sarah “Pollen”…is conflicted and bipolar…this woman says she’s against sex education in our public schools at the same time waltzes across her 17 year old pregnant daughter..this same woman…got married when she was 3 months pregnant, then tried to cover it up against her own parents will…this same woman who is under an ultra conservative had an affair 5 years ago with her husband’s business partner

Uh-oh prince pimp Jamal, let’s not start talking about family mess…remember your incident with a 17 year old, and your adultery. 😆

Maybe those clown outfits and 3 foot wide neckties are starting to restrict the oxygen that goes to Jamal’s brain 🙄

This same woman, who took 7 years just to get a bachelors degree having failed out of 2 community colleges…this is who you would put up against a Harvard graduate?…

Um, princepimp Jamal – Sarah “Pollen” is not running against your “new jesus” – she’s #2 on the ticket, remember? Oh, and let’s not talk about her education credentials – particularly since you lied about getting a doctorate degree from Oxford, and you had to amend your original phony bio (now it simply says he “obtained his Doctor of Ministry in 2005” – no mention of the school that he got it from). Go to his tacky and seeker-sensitive website and click the “about us” link (and mute your PC so you don’t have to hear his voice). I won’t call prince pimp Jamal a degenerate liar, but I will say that he lied many times…

Alright – I’m starting to get ill, so let’s get to the crescendo, shall we?:

…even when if you’re from the ghetto and get a degree they’ll still put up somebody from a trailer park and say  there’s somebody who is better than you

Wow. This idiot can’t get over the fact that Barack“new jesus” isn’t running against Sarah “Pollen” – he keeps comparing her to “new jesus”. Then he calls her (essentially) “trailer park trash”?. Now if we heard evangelicals calling Barack“new jesus” a nigger from the pulpit then we would all have a collective “poop fit”.

I’m not saying that it’s not the same sentiment shared by our “brothers from another mother”, but this degenerate continues to show his disdain for the holy bookboard and throws his arms around a man who supports abortion, homosexual legal unions, a government welfare state, and ecumenicism. 

Well, what else do you expect from a man who couldn’t exegete his way out of a torn wet paper bag..sound biblical doctrine?

Think prince pimp Jamal’s words aren’t resonating with the “great unwashed”? Well, look at some of the comments on the youtube page that houses this video:

  • All Praises Due to ALLAH
    We should all be concerned about our future because we will have to spend the rest of our lives there
    This man speaks nothing but the truth may ALLAH be pleased with him. Vote for change Obama for president. Check out NAS new CD powerful
  • Awesome message and it’s all true, Pastor Bryant is a man of God and will tell the truth at all times. I have followed his ministry on TV.
  • You may not be hearing form the Pastors you mentioned because they feel they should not use their pulpit as a platform for political endorsements which pastors should not be doing. There is no doubt where this pastor stands. He is using his pulpit as a political forum. However, I agree with everything this young man has said.
  • This is what is known as “speaking truth to power”. All of the prophets in the bible did it………JESUS did it. But we are so divided in this country that we would rather watch the US be destroyed by the likes of McCain, Bush Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Karl Rove! People are losing jobs, homes, health care, but we are clinging to old racial hatreds. What the pastor left out is that Palin and her husband support groups that want Alaska to leave(secede) from the USA.
  • This is awesome! I pray God continues to give our African American Community Revelation it is time for a CHANGE. Let us get out and vote in November.

Oh well, another stop along the road to the ascension of Barack“new jesus” to his rigthful throne.

By the way – I used Independent Conservative’s extensive coverage of prince pimp Jamal because his old posts quote (and link directly to) the original articles in the Baltimore Sun. Curiously, those links don’t work anymore and you can only find one story on pimp Jamal in the paper’s online archives (about his divorce).

Hmmm….interesting.

“YES WE CAN”???

God Owes You Nothing!

As I’ve stated in a previous post, Paul warned us in Galatians 1:6-8 that others will try to turn us away from the message of Christ and the Cross by persuading us to subscribe to a different gospel (or what some bible translations call “another gospel”).

Jamal Bryant (the pimp of Baltimore) gave us a classic illustration of this butchering the Gospel for personal justification.

The primary reason that pulpit pimps are allowed to twist scripture and doctrine is simply because we don’t read God’s Word as diligently as we should.

If we are reading it, then we’re not studying it.

If we are studying it, we’re negating it’s truths for the artful prose of an eloquent pimp who completely distorts it until we find ourselves regurgitating the garbage we’ve been fed.

As I state continuously, in the past, I was guilty of being persuaded by a charismatic pimp (and his “spiritual daddy”) so much so that I would doubt God Himself if my pimps told me to.

By the Grace of God, the scales fell from my eyes and I’m having to re-learn the Word of God for myself.

One of the tenants of the bible that I was “taught” was that God abdicated His Dominion on the earth when He created Adam and Eve.

Essentially, my pimps (and every other word of faith or prosperity butcher in the market today) teach that God CAN’T operate in the “earth realm” unless we give Him permission to.

Instead of us being puppets of God, He’s supposed to be our puppet.

puppet.jpg

That, my friends, is what we call “heresy”.

Andre Landers (the pimp of Hampton, GA) has even gone so far as to say that it is “illegal” for God to do anything in the earth – except through His created.

He actually said that “God will not break his own rules. He can’t move until we release Him to”. 

I heard this with my very own ears – repeatedly.

It didn’t help that I.V. Hilliard (the pimp of Houston) came to Andre’s church last year to give him more ammunition in spouting this heresy. Old I.V. said that God’s Will is NOT automatic – we have to “release” God’s Will in our lives.

Again, I was there. I heard it with my own ears, and scratched my head in wonder.

I’m already going to take a page and a half to finish this post, so I won’t address this stupidity – you’re welcome to reply if you’re familiar with this insane declaration as well.

Even though Landers is ignorantly spouting the same inane comments that he learned from Eddie Long (his “spiritual father” and the pimp of Lithonia, GA), it’s still a VERY DANGEROUS doctrine that many gullible Christians (both mature and new to the faith) are subscribing to.

Allow me to attempt to deconstruct the argument:

  • The pimps use Genesis 1:26 as “proof” that God gave His authority over the earth to man. The crux of this argument gives them the “revelation” that God CAN’T reign on the earth – He HAS to use men to do it, especially since He “gave us rule (or dominion) over everything else”.

I’ll let Isaiah’s words debunk this idiocy:

16You turn things around!
   Shall the potter be considered as equal with the clay,
   That (A)what is made would say to its maker, “He did not make me”;
   Or what is formed say to him who formed it, “He has no understanding”? (Isaiah 29:16
)

How stupid would I look if I opened my refrigerator door and asked my water pitcher for permission to pour myself a glass of water? It’s just as ridiculous to think that our Holy and Sovereign God, The Maker of Heaven & Earth would keep His (proverbial) hands in His pockets until we “activate Him” in the earth!

I don’t know about you, but my life (apart from Christ) was a HOT MESS. All these years later, even on my holiest days, I’m chasing after God hoping to stay close enough not to operate in my own flesh.

Why would the great I AM (Exodus 3:14) reserve His power – only to be “dispatched” at my beck and call?

It doesn’t make any sense.

I’m no apologetic, theologian, or divinity student, so I’ll let others debate the error in my brief attempt at exegesis.

If you’d like to be “deeper” and more “theologically sound” than I am, and condemn my “weak” argument then go ahead, be my guest – and do me a favor by leaving your homiletic exposition in the “comments” section so that other scholars can participate as well.

The bottom line is this: God is God, and He doesn’t owe you or I anything.

We owe Him EVERYTHING!

“I’m Still The Man!”

In Galatians 1:7 (NLT), Paul states that “…there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ”. Of course, your next question may be “why would someone want to deliberately pervert or twist the Gospel?” The answer is simply this: for selfish gain.

Many of the false teachers of today have created a commodity from the Gospel – they use it to attain wealth (from tithes, offerings, love offerings, first fruits, etc.). Once the false teachers begin to gain a steady and lucrative income from you, you cease to be a parishioner and you now become revenue stream (or a “giving unit” as described in the Finance Office of your church).

The videos below are an egregious example of a false teaching perpetrated by Dr. Jamal Bryant – Senior Pastor of Empowerment Temple AME church in Baltimore, MD. Bryant has twisted the gospel for some time, but most folks ignored it because he’s young, charismatic, and charming.

Bryant and his wife are divorcing – his wife alleges that he fathered a child out of wedlock (with a member of his congregation). I won’t turn this site into a supermarket tabloid, so visit the Baltimore Sun newspaper to learn more of the official story

Anyway, Bryant took to the pulpit of his church a few weeks ago to address (or not address) the issue that his congregation had been whispering about for some time. Does he admit his wrong and repent? Does he ask for forgiveness and seek godly counsel? Well, view the videos below (in order) and tell me what you hear: 

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

Part 4:

So let me get this straight – Bryant uses the story of Nathan confronting David about Bathsheba (2 Samuel 12:1-24, NLT) to justify that he is “still the man”? Interestingly, he started with verse 7, and didn’t even bother to present the Gospel in its proper context. How low can you go? At least David had the decency to confess that he had sinned before the Lord (2 Samuel 12:13) – did you hear Bryant confess and repent to the people he’s been entrusted to lead? He then distorts Psalm 51:10-13 (NLT).

Again, this division of Psalm is David asking God to create a clean heart in him – because of his sin with Bathsheba. If you read the chapter in its entirety, you’ll see that David recognizes his rebellion (verse 3), and admits that he sinned against God – and that God’s punishment is just (verse 4).

Finally, at the end of Part 4, Bryant’s “armor bearer” twists the knife a final time by distorting the account of Christ reading in the Temple in Luke 4:20 (NKJV). An exploration of the entire account, however tells the full story in context:

16 So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. 17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:

The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” 22 So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, “Is this not Joseph’s?” Luke 4:16-20 NKJV)

OK, so let me get this straight – Jesus’ declaration that He is the Messiah that Isaiah foretold of is equivalent to Bryant’s tantrum and ending his “sermon” by slamming his bible closed and walking away in a huff?

Got it.

The saddest part about this whole affair (pardon the pun) is the reaction of his congregation. What if he admitted (or not admitted) to murdering an innocent person – would they do cartwheels and throw money at his feet?

This is yet another example of the need for prayer in the Body of Christ. Men and women are being imprisoned while trying to spread the Gospel in hostile territory, and this clown is huffing and puffing because his revenue stream is being threatened?

We need to pray…
