    Any organization should should their officers with much thought and prayer. Popularity is not something that ought to be considered. Christian council should choose their officers wisely. Especially when it comes to finance. You can not put a nice with cheese. Enough said.

    Not one of them has opened their mouths in public denouncing the Plandemic of Bill Gates. Not one of them has preached enough is enough. They themselves will take the Vaccine in the name of Gid and the Beast at the same time.
    They are doing nothing for the poor and needy, only calling the Lord name in vain. These religions are over due on earth , they are the cause of so much suffering because they did not teach us to eliminate the EGO.
    We are not even humans yet still the intellectual animal. Shame on the BVICC. There is one of them it there that know but Money take over his mind. Read Deepak Chopra and know Black History. Time for the slave masters religion to cease , give us back our African Heritage. Be gone Moloc we deny thee our children to devour. So more it be.

    Isaiah 56:10-11
    [10]His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, THEY ARE ALL DUMB DOGS, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

    [11]Yea, THEY ARE GREEDY DOGS WHICH CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

    I would be interested to know who bestowed the titles on these people - "Reverend", "Apostle", "Pastor". Are these self appointments or earned qualifications?
