Victory

Laurette Willis: Whenever we are obedient to what we believe the Lord is telling us to do, we are victorious. Our call to have Jamie Foxx repent ("apologize") was actually to prompt action between former Baptist musicminister-turned-hate-comic-actor Jamie Foxx and the Lord. Hoping to bring him back to his roots in the faith he grew up with in his grandparents' church. We raised awareness about the blase' attitude about blasphemy in today's culture. Our petition served as a mirror to all who viewed the petition - of each one's attitudes, beliefs and priorities. Sadly, for many PC trumps blasphemy -- but for others, their conscience and relationship with God prompted them to consider what Jamie's "new humor" says about our culture -- and about adulation of a public figure. Declare Victory? Yes, we have the Victory in Jesus - and that is really all we've ever needed.

Jamie Foxx said on the nationally televised 2012 Soul Train Music Awards: “First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama.” And then he stirred the crowd to praise ("Ya'll stand up now...!").

Grieved!!! This is Comedy? Political commentary? Misplaced worship strangely disguised as humor--is it? ALL believers should find something VERY wrong with this.

The First Commandment: "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me" (Exodus 20:3).
Jesus said, "Whoever acknowledges Me before men, I will also acknowledge him before My Father in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 10:32-33).

Jamie, you grew up in church (New Hope Baptist in Terrell, TX). You know how powerful your words are -- and that this is not funny or satirical.

Will believers rise up and demand an apology for this public degrading our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by (humorously?) lifting up a human in His place?

What embassy can we tear down? Oh, it would be our own.

I looked online to see if there was chatter about this anywhere. There isn't! No one seems to care (but if he insulted the Delta Smelt Fish, we'd be all up in arms, right?). All I saw was a hue and cry for Jamie to apologize to Miley Cyrus in 2009 (which he did on the Jay Leno Show in April 2009).

Sign this and let us rise up as believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - and demand an apology. We do not want Jamie apologize to us! We insist he publicly apologize to God.

And why not? If Jamie Foxx can publicly apologize to Miley Cyrus, surely he can apologize to God, the Creator of the universe, who made him and gifted him with many talents.

From Jamie's website: "He was born Eric Bishop and raised by his grandparents in Terrell, Texas. It was his 'Granny' who recognized his gift to perform and introduced him to the piano. By fifteen, he was serving as musical director and choir leader at Terrell’s New Hope Baptist Church. Not only was he a gifted musician, but also a star athlete at Terrell High school setting records in football and track. It was music that took this well-rounded young man to California when he received a classical piano scholarship to U.S. International University in San Diego."

    2. A FEW MORE DAYS LEFT...

      We've reached well over 100 signatures. The petition and your comments have been sent to Jamie's publicist, so we can only trust it's been sent to Jamie, too. And even if they didn't deem it worthy to be sent to him, I know that many of you have been praying--and that is what makes the REAL difference.

      It's between him and the Lord now - and I believe in my heart that Jamie knows what we're praying he do: turn back to the Lord, seek His forgiveness and be restored to fellowship with God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ who created him and loves him.

      Am I disappointed more people didn't sign? I'd say surprised more than disappointed. I think this is another in a series of wake-up calls. Some think political "correctness" (a misnomer) trumps blasphemy hand over fist (or fist over hand, in this case).

      Regardless, I commend you for doing what you felt was right--and for praying for Jamie.

      Thank you! I WILL KEEP PETITION OPEN A FEW MORE DAYS--SHARE!
      Your sister, Laurette

      Now Change.org will send this to Jamie Foxx's PR firm. Pray for a turn-around of Jamie's heart back to the Lord. We do NOT want him to apologize to US--but to repent and return to GOD.

      Thank you for your faithfulness and willingness to step out and be counted. Your 100 voices represent 1000s who have not spoken up.

      May God richly bless you!

      This petition is a MIRROR to many. It forces us to ask, "Does this matter?" "Who really cares?" "What difference does it make anyway?" "Is God real?"

      Despite the general apathy of many, and others *yawning* over blasphemy, I believe that your willingness to take a stand for the Name and Lordship of Jesus Christ is precious in the sight of the Lord. Once we reach at least 100 signatures, this petition will be sent to Jamie Foxx's public relations firm. They may realize that 100 brave voices represent 1000s of others.

      As a young man, Jamie served as a Music Minister at New Hope Baptist Church in Terrell, TX. He KNOWS better. It would be different if this were someone ignorant of Who Jesus truly is.

      I sincerely pray that he will see this and return to the God of all salvation.
