As most Church news have reported and talked about for a while now, Fred Price Jr stepped down from his position because he made mistakes that he believes disqualified him from being what he was called to be and was doing very well in, and that is being a teacher of the word of God. Fred Price Jr actually did something that most other ministers and positions holders in churches today don’t do. He didn’t hide behind his title and just ignored things. He didn’t continue to lie about things and didn’t make them go away with money. He made a mistake and he paid the price for it with his position, respect and family pain.
Unlike a lot of people, I truly know what goes on in most if not all churches that bring in money, and it isn’t pretty. Beyond the curtain call for Sunday morning lays hatred, jealous acts, sinful backbiting, and flat out plannings for how to gain more money from members by having more services and setting up fake coincidences to make people believe in the audience that the pastor just so happen to be talking about the same subject the choir just song about it, when it was set up like that for weeks. Yes, it’s ugly. It always is ugly because the same people that you work with that cursed you out are the same people going to the church down the street and working at the church. Whatever you see on Sunday mornings aren’t what is going on behind the scenes( I would never mention what churches). I remember when I first was exposed to the truth over and over again in different churches( it wasn’t just one). It almost destroyed me. They say the top two things you don’t want to know is how they make your beef and how the church is truly run. This is very true. So understanding that human nature exists and will always be the source of everything on this earth until the flesh is put away for good is key. Only small churches or denominations like the Jehovah’s Witness have the best setup in place to remove this temptation from the people that run the church. And even then they deal with it on different levels else where. In life, it’s the same. Where you find one sin and point, you find two more against yourself. The very fact that other people especially black men and ministers find it their business to post video’s about it and trying to come up with what they believe the reason is and continue to gossip and put down this man, is a sin itself. The bible actually places you into the same category as some of the most hateful sins in God’s eyes.
Not only are these same people accused of such sins equal to or possibly worse than Fred Price Jr by continuing to gossip about this, but all the people out there that find pleasure and or support them in their actions are all guilty. So people should really be careful trying to bury someone that already took his punishment and stripes like a True Man of God, but they really need to look at themselves in the mirror. These same people smoke, drink, watch porn, look at sister Jones’s butty on a regular basis, fornicate, cheat, Molest or rape either physically or mentally. Somewhere, something stands against these people and instead of trying to make themselves feel better about their failures in their spiritual lives by gossiping they should find a message and lesson of sure encouragement in this tragedy. If this man can step away from all that he had by owning up to his mistakes and seek to become better, where can I apply such grace and mercy in my life or others?
