GENERATION GAP

By: Bobby E. Mills, PhD

America is spiritually losing generation after generation, because we have forgotten that: “Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.” (Psalm 90:1). In the Black community we are experiencing generational curses without spiritually understanding that God will never break faith with us, even though we sin against His Commandments and ourselves. Thus, there are many curses, but the number one curse in the Black community is family disintegration. Seventy-five percent of all families in the Black community are without a male father figure. Family spiritual brokenness is the overriding problem in the Black community. Family brokenness produces spiritual brokenness from God, because individuals are attempting to live apart from the reality of God. God is LOVE, and apart from God is spiritual brokenness. If individuals attempt to live apart from God, they invariably live in the reality of the devil. God created family as the foundational institution of society. In so doing, God spiritually required that husbands be obedient to their wives by loving and protecting them. Likewise, wives are to be spiritually obedient, and love and comfort their husbands. Children are to obey their parents, by understanding that to spare the rod is to spoil the child. More importantly, parents must train up children in the spiritual way of the Lord. As a result, none of this is spiritually taking root in Black families nor American society in general. Love child gone wild, and babies having babies.

This is the crux of generational self-annihilation. There is simply too much ungodly disintegration taking lace in Black families. Mental health and eating habits have become serious generational curses. Health is wealth, and individuals dietarily are what they eat. Gluttony personified. Lest we forget, Black on Black crime is absolutely ungodly. Likewise, wholesome family mental health is mostly environmental, and contributes to family disintegration, because life apart from God is insanity. America is losing generation after generation, because of our immorality and spiritual disobedience against the will of God. Too many Americans have broken faith with God, themselves, as well as others. Hence, evil is running wild in American society, even though a remnant of God’s people remains steadfast in the Faith. Life in the twenty-first century is characterized by bold sinful immorality, gun violence, and spiritual confusion,because we are living in a crooked and perverse world.

The advent of Donald J. Trump into the political arena in (2016) has only exacerbated societal confusion, bold lying, political corruption, and societal violence. Trumpism has produced a bold ungodly corrosive impact on American society. Seventy-three million Trumpeters would rather buy guns than Bibles. In fact, the power of God’s truth is rejected by far too many twenty-first century Americans, because they spiritually do not understand: “Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;” (Philippians 2: 14-15). God’s faithfulness transcends generational curses, because: “The Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.” (Psalm 100: 5). America, lest we forget, the radicalized incident of President Trump removing peaceful demonstrators from a public park to use a church as a political prop, and to use the Bible as a demonstration of his Faith and obedience to the will of God.

However, God in His infinite wisdom had Trump to hold the Bible up-side-down, as Trump’s life is spiritually upside down. In due time, Trump will find himself spiritually broken, materially
broke, because a fool and his money will soon part. Most of all, by law Trump might find himself in prison, and hopefully lost generations of all races, creeds, and political persuasions can
overcome the misguided and ungodly White Privilege Autocratic doctrine of exclusion in a multi-cultural democratic society. Prayerfully, the next generation will follow the spiritual tenets of God, and not the devilish isms of ungodly men. Do not read these words of spiritual inspiration in isolation, share the editorial with others. Selah!

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
