Good evening and welcome to Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos Blogtalkradio, my name is Emmanuel Barbee I am your host. The Urban Revival series is a spiritual enriched event where we praise and worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through the reading of his word, words of encouragement, poems, hymns, and loving one another the way God loves us.

I created this show as a way to interact with people on my friends list and those who are in my social groups to give ordinary law abiding activist, artist, church leaders, and small business owners an opportunity to promote their products/services to my listeners from the Podcast community in the convenience and privacy of your home. This show is available every Thursday evening from 10:00PM to 10:30PM Central Time. From Friday through Sunday evenings 5:00PM to 5:30PM Central Time I will have authentic Christian leaders and Believers from my friends list to appear on this show to help spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to my listeners in the Podcast community. Even if you miss these events you can always listen to the archives which is available 24/7. The public number to call in is (646) 668-8698 and press 1 to be on the air.

The theme: Our Inner City Youth Matters/Restoring Kingdom Commitment” Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

The purpose of this event is for me to gather authentic Christians from my friends list to be in agreement with me that God will allow my Christian organization GRCAM to come to past this year in Jesus name. Pray that God will allow my revised book to get into the right hands of like minded people who will join my cause and work with me and Sister Rena so that we can generate enough capital from my book sell in order for me to hire qualified individuals to assist us with the daily operations of this business in Jesus name. Bless everyone who is listening to this podcast touch their hearts and minds to see the importance of what Sister Rena and I are trying to do for our people who reside in the most violence communities in Chicago in Jesus name.
Tonight my message is Reclaiming The Black Church By Becoming The Church & Showing God’s Love By Practicing What We Preach. The Black Church has played a power role in the black community. I believe people now adays are seeking social justice own their own rather than including religion as part of their strategy. Our ancestors embrace Christianity as a way to cope during slavery and during the Civil Rights Movement.
But today churches in our inner cities are not helping the black community as they once did, because of widespread hypocrisy and also religious leaders are focusing more on building mega churches instead of focusing on meeting the community needs. People are in church on Sunday but the Church is not in them. I thought I would get support from the faith community about my cause but many of our brothers and sisters have this Willie Lynch mentality which is doing more harm than good in the black culture.

From sex abuse in the church by pedophile priest to pastors having sexual relations with members from their congregation, or the lavish lifestyles portrayed by preachers of LA gives the Black Church a bad rep. These negative stories about the church gives secular people a reason not to come to church. The devil is on his job everyday to destroy families and their lives through wicked people. Religious leaders are the ones responsible for the death of Jesus Christ. Jesus was considered a revolutionary because of his preaching in those days. He was a threat to the political elite and the religious establishment because he wanted people to focus on God’s kingdom. In the book of Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” We can see in the book of John 10:24-39 and in the book of Mark 11:27-28. The gospels portray Jesus opponents as The Chief Priests, Scribes, Elders, Pharisees, and Sadducees as religious leaders who conspired to have him killed. The only sources we have for who had Jesus murdered are the four Gospels: Mark 14-15, Matthew 26-27, Luke 22-23, and John 18-19. The Bible tell us that Jesus was arrested, underwent two hearings or trials, was sentenced to death by crucifixion, and died on the cross. The Jews who took the initiative in this proceeding were not the only opponents of Jesus during his public ministry (the Pharisees) but also the High Priest, the Chief Priests and the Elders those who had more at stake in running the Temple and keeping the peace of Jerusalem. According to Mark 14:53-65, there were two charges made against Jesus: He threatened to destroy the Temple and claimed to be “the Messiah.”

Jesus’ threat against the Temple fits with his symbolic action in “cleansing” the Temple (Mark 11:15-19) and his prophecies about the Temple’s destruction (Mark 13:1-2). For Jewish leaders and merchants whose livelihood depended on the Temple, the slightest threat against the Temple would have been taken very seriously. Moreover, Jesus claim to be “the Messiah” set off alarms not only among the Romans but also among the Jewish leaders. Both viewed Jesus as another religious pretender who had to be dealt with. The kind of language being used about Jesus in some circles alerted them to the danger that Jesus pose to their power and status quo. Although Jewish leaders were involved, the main legal formalities were carried out by the Romans. Jesus was killed “under Pontius Pilate,” and the Jewish authorities in Jerusalem played a role in Jesus death. In Matthew 27:25 “His blood be upon us and upon our children” is best taken as referring to the crowd manipulated by the leaders of Jerusalem. Jesus died in accord with the Scriptures as the expression of God’s will. Jesus died a sacrificial death for us and for our sins (Mark, Paul, and Hebrews). Jesus death was part of his revelation of God and of his glorious return to the Father and the pledge of his second coming (Revelation).

I live in Chicago the current murder capital in America and yet I have no black churches in my city willing to partner with me for my cause which is Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos. Urban violence is a moral issue. The Church in general is against abortion urban violence is no different. I offer something that no black leader has in America and that is a solution to end urban violence in our inner cities if given a chance. I am a Christian socialist and my virtual Christian organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement will also be a Christian socialist organization. Christian socialism is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. Many Christian socialists believe that capitalism is idolatrous and rooted in greed, social inequality, and institutionalized racism which most Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. I am also an upcoming social entrepreneur. A social entrepreneur are people who tries to solve social, cultural, and environmental issues. Some of my Christian friends ask me why do I include secular people on my friends list? I explain to them that we as Christians should focus on what we stand for: love, compassion, social justice, and liberation theology. Jesus commanded us to be a witness to others not just for us to read his word, but to activate social change in the world according to Luke 4:18-19.
It’s my hope that the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement will someday become a global leader in providing emergency relief, post conflict resolution, and community advocacy for poor black families affected by conflict and systematic oppression starting in American ghettos.

As soon as The Lord bless me with the capital from my revised book and or once I have my management team (10 individuals within the United States who have read my story and meet the qualifications that I’m looking for) then I will move my virtual Christian organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement from behind a computer starting in Chicago. It’s my hope to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 10 other cities within 10 states. We will help improve the African American community by strengthening the Black Family and meeting the needs of the community through our programs and services. I want to build alliances with African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbean, Non-black sympathizers, as well as welcome all Christian denominations, moderate Muslims, and secular people who are interested in my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos. I’m not asking for donations instead all I am asking is that everyone who can to purchase my revised book in order for me to turn my vision into reality.
