COGIC Celebrate Bishop LT Walker Homegoing - Does Bishop Blake Endorse Gay Marriage? - Truth About Death - Bible Prophecy Video

Holy Temple Church of God In Christ -and St. Mark Full Gospel Church Presents The National Homegoing for Bishop LT Walker, . Bishop Charles E. Blake Presiding

LITTLE ROCK — Bishop Leato Thomas Walker Sr. served nearly 50 years as leader of Arkansas’ First Jurisdiction of the Church of God in Christ, which includes several Pine Bluff churches.

Walker, 91, of Little Rock died Sunday at Baptist Health Medical Center at Little Rock.

As prelate of the first jurisdiction, he was the leader of 163 churches.

Walker, a man who loved to teach, chartered Charles Harrison Mason/L.T. Walker Bible College and School of Theology based at Little Rock. The school has three satellite locations, including one at Pine Bluff.

He was vice chairman of the Board of Bishops of the Church of God in Christ for 24 years and in 1996, became chairman where he served eight years. “He was certainly a Christian gentleman from his heart,” said DeWitt Hill, pastor of First Trinity Church of God in Christ at Pine Bluff, who served under Walker’s leadership. Hill said Walker and former President Bill Clinton were very close. He recalled Clinton visited and played the saxophone at some of the churches in Walker’s jurisdiction during Clinton’s years as governor and that Walker had Clinton’s personal phone number during his years as president. “He was very fond of the bishop,” Hill said.

Walker helped to create programs to reduce gang violence as a member of the Little Rock City Safety Commission and he was instrumental in establishing the United Christian Credit Union helping low-income families and single parents to obtain loans.

“He didn’t have any biological children of his own. They were all adopted, but you wouldn’t know it,” said Joe Stocker, pastor of Main Street Church of God in Christ at Pine Bluff. “He made sure they were all well educated and taken care of. I think he did a great job.”

Stocker said in addition to being well versed in the scriptures, Walker was very knowledgeable of history, including black history. Walker was born Dec. 15, 1917, at Nashville to Emmanuel Walker and Frankie Walker.

He and his wife, Lottie Mae Jones Walker, were married Aug. 1, 1944.

Bishop Charles Blake endorses gay marriage declaration

blake2 A Special GCM Watch Report. COGIC leader signs onto document affirming universal rights to homosexual marriage.

Just over two months ago, Bishop Charles Blake appointedDr. David Hall, a midlevel church official, as his “official emissary” to the signing of the Universal Declaration of International Human Rights . The Faith in Human Rights Statement was issued in conjunction with the anniversary of the UDIHR.

The Memphis-based Tri State Defender said Blake’s invitation came at the behest of The Netherlands Queen Beatrix whose nation in 2001 was one of the first to grant full marriage rights to homosexuals. Queen Beatrix assembled this diverse religious gathering on the 60th anniversary of the document’s signing. And everyone was giddy with ecumenical joy. But peel away the feel good humanism and you are left with a bizarre collusion of world religions and political religionists whose goal is to enact universal law governing humanity and its “rights”. According to the Tri-State Defender:

COGIC hit with $100 million lawsuit for sexual abuse

The Southern Maryland News is reporting that COGIC is now in the legal crosshairs following a sexual abuse case we told you about in January:

A woman has filed a $100 million lawsuit against a Waldorf church, claiming her son was “sexually harassed” by one of its ministers. The woman faulted the church for the conduct of Tony Ray Malbrough, who was charged in January with criminal offenses for allegedly molesting a different child.

The victim told police that Malbrough, 44, formerly a minister of music at the New Community Church of God in Christ, sexually assaulted him on numerous occasions during keyboard lessons at Malbrough’s Indian Head home, court papers show.

After the 14-year-old victim came forward, three more people reported being sexually abused by Malbrough, said Diane Richardson, police spokeswoman. Richardson didn’t disclose whether the woman’s son was one of the victims who reported being molested by Malbrough.

“There is sincerely no amount of money that could heal the wound for the damage that has been afflicted,” wrote the woman in her civil complaint. The Independent is not identifying the woman because to do so would identify a victim of an alleged sex crime.

The woman is suing the Waldorf church for pain and suffering. Also included in the lawsuit is the national Church of God in Christ Inc.

“The New Community Church of God is responsible,” wrote the woman in her complaint, adding that parents trust the church with their children. “We are not expecting that our children be violated by sex offenders whether known or unknown.”

On March 10, the New Community Church of God in Christ filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit. The church’s pastor, Willie Hunt, asked the court to dismiss the complaint because his notice didn’t contain a case number or writ of summons.
Malbrough has been charged with second-degree child abuse, third-degree sex offense, two counts of fourth-degree sex offense and filming child pornography.
Hunt and the woman filing the lawsuit couldn’t be reached for comment.
