Pastor Jamal Bryant has been in the news lately for his remarks on the pulpit recently, but those remarks might appear to be a minor excerpt of a longer message. So, out of fairness to the good pastor, it makes the best sense to put an entire sermon in front of readers so they can decide what he’s all about.
In this sermon, Pastor Bryant begins speaking about the kidnapped girls in Nigeria. He says that it was his hope to do work in the country to help the girls, but he has a deep concern for the fact that nearly 60 black boys were slaughtered just a month earlier, by the exact same group, in the exact same location.
The pastor continues to state that there is a broad conspiracy in the United States for the destruction of young black men. He talks about the school system, in which black boys make an early decision as to whether they are going to be popular or smart. He says that based on the reading scores of these young boys, the state then decides how many prison cells to build.
The pastor also states that for hundreds of years, the plan to ruin black families started with “the enemy” designing programs and incentives to remove the black male from the home. He cites The New Deal and other social programs that leveraged black economic despair as an opportunity to “take over the house” in black families and communities.
You heard his soundbit earlier, now let’s hear a full sermon so we can see if he’s for real or not. Tell us what you think.
Of course the pastor was quoted recently in a soundbite saying “these hoes ain’t loyal,” but is there more to him than just a soundbite?
Can a man make a statement like this and still have value to the black community?
Tell us what you think.
Here’s more from Pastor Bryant’s bio:
Radical, Revolutionary, Innovative, Anointed, and Cutting Edge are some of the words often used to describe Dr. Jamal-Harrison Bryant. Stepping out on faith, with the support of 43 people who believed and met in his home for bible study, Dr. Bryant founded The Empowerment Temple. The first service was held on Easter Sunday, April 22, 2000, in a Baltimore City banquet hall. He prayed that God would send someone. In just four years, God has directed the path of over 6,000 members to Empowerment Temple, the fastest growing church in the A.M.E. denomination.
Dr. Bryant is a pastor with a global mission, which is to Empower the World Through the Word. He believes that the body of Christ should be empowered in every area of life. His preaching and teaching focuses on empowering believers spiritually, developing them educationally, exposing them culturally, activating them politically and strengthening them economically.
