Why a Black Minister is Disappointed in the Black Church

I have to admit that the last four or five years has been an eye opening experience. I have closely watched the events unravel nationally from a political and social standpoint. It is interesting when you examine things from a spiritually scriptural point of view. The more I study the Bible the more amazed I am at the specificity in which the Word of God reveals things to us. I am equally amazed at how much those in the household of faith miss it. There is a place in the scriptures in which Jesus literally wept over Jerusalem. He said that His people could identify the weather patterns by the signs in the sky but they could not identify the spiritual patterns by the signs of the times, this is most unfortunate.
