Sybil better be careful before Bishop Noel Jones sicks his sister Grace on her. Initially, I would have probably agreed somewhat with Sybil about the show Preachers of LA being a nightmare for men of God to be a part of, then when I heard the conversation between her and Noel, I began to see and hear, sans the “proclivities” and other five dollar words Noel likes to use , I could see his point and it was actually a good one. Sybil thought that he should be a better representation of God and while he is not God preachers should be Godly. Jones pointed out in response that HE is not to blame because (black) people look at preachers in the (black) community like they are God and I tend to agree, it is THE COMMUNITY who is to blame for holding a man or woman to such an unrealistic high standard. In addition Radio Facts readers, standards are something that WE are responsible for setting for OURSELVES … we don’t have the right to expect others to live up to who we want them to be….THAT’s THE PROBLEM in the black community. Gloraye Hallelue, preach Kevin, oh that’s me! To Sybil’s defense, there are many MANY ministers who ACT like they ARE God which causes people to believe they are and they are not. It’s a matter of self worth and esteem, if you had millions of people treating you like you were God all over the world you might start to believe it too. The show will indeed show that, as Bishop Jones states, preachers and ministers are only humans who make mistakes, have egos, drug problems, cheat and have baby mammy’s just like other people. Now I think I’ll WATCH the show. It’s a great opportunity for the church going public and everyone else to see where their tithes are going and I think it’s about time we see that.
