Faith on Fridays with Sheilah Belle | September 14 – 16

Sheilah Belle catches us up on everything from this past week and what to look forward to this weekend.

Hey Everyone, I’m Sheilah Belle and this is Faith on Fridays!

A controversial Memphis pastor has drawn millions of views with his messages online by punctuating them with profanity. He says he really doesn’t “give a da*n” what traditional Christians think of his practice.

“I find no reason to try to justify that. I’m a fisherman of men. I go to people on their level. And you have to get past the cussing, to get the message”.

The cussing has drawn the attention of millions around the country. Pastor Thaddeus Matthews leads the Naked Truth Liberation and Empowerment Ministries in Memphis, Tennessee.

The family entertainment watchdog group Parents Television Council is lauding HBO for its decision to quit showing erotic movies. HBO has recently removed its adult entertainment movies and television programs from both its channels and streaming services.

‘American Idol’ winner Jordin Sparks has revealed the powerful prayer she prays over her 4-month-old son, DJ. She shared how his birth deepened her faith in Jesus Christ and says,

“Having my son completely changed my perspective on everything. Every time I rock him to sleep I start drifting into prayer over the choices he makes, the people he meets, and everything that’s going to happen in his life. I pray, Lord, let him be strong when he needs to be, let him be kind in certain moments, let him be soft in certain moments, let him be compassionate, let him be passionate about other things and other people”.

How awesome!
