Well, Bad choices lead to Bad consequences. Let God use you to Bless others. God reveals his Glory through us. Our ability to Glorify God is not what we can do to help God, but on what God can do to help us. God knows what he is doing, he can see the big picture. (Trust God)! God doesn't always choose the way we choose; man looks on the outside, God looks at the heart. Trust or Worry! You can Worry. Or you can Trust God! You Can't do both.~ God Bless~

Soooooo I guess a 4-6 week tour will be announced in a week?!

She could actually make that money in a few days (if she has the right team in place) if she actually shows up --on time-- for all the dates.

@4:35 at least they didn't mention anything about her kneecaps.

She is going to make deal with some record company/promoter who is going to front her some money for a whole lot of work and then she is going try and renig on that deal eventually because it was a deal made out of desperation. Or somebody,hip hop/ rapper will cut her a check. Jayz, Nas, Russell, Steve.

@tracey . God is also a mercifull God and doesn't always punish us for our short comings . This woman needs his mercy , she's half crazy and has a thousand children that love and need her. I pray for his mercy for her it will be very traumatic for all those kids go lose their mom . Was she a hoe ? Yes. But let he who is without sin cast the first stone . We have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God . Her being a husband stealing hoe isn't viewed any worse than than what people consider a little sin . With God sin is sin .

Sad because NO one will come to her rescue. They did't come for Westly. This women had children and is a mom but NO One cares about that. Lauren has distance herself from the music world for awhile so it is sad to know that she is more then likely going to jail for 2 yrs. The Marley's are probably NOT going to come to her rescue they will just offer to take care of her kids.

Homes, Royalties

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sandra Moser said Hill has almost $3 million in equity in homes and a “constant stream of royalties.” She said Hill has an album contract that would pay her $1 million after delivering five songs and $3 million upon completion of the rest.

Hill lives in South Orange, New Jersey, he said.

That sound like something only white republicans can get away with, anybody else start speaking, thinking, researching, living that is going to all the jails, one week locked up here, one week locked up there, etc

Anonymous said...

@7:40. So if what you say is true, then Lauren can fix her own problems fairly quickly using her assets as collateral or getting her ass in the studio with a team of producers and start spitting off the dome..and give The label/fans what they want...
Damn if jail ain't motivating her, then I don't know what the fuck will..cuz I ain't going to jail and leaving my babies for some shit that could be rectified.
Lauren is here but she ain't here, feel me!

Lauryn got that under her mattress. I feel no sympathy for her, nor do I believe in her crackpot conspiracy theories. How hard is it to pay your taxes?

God is Rich In Mercy. However, He is also a Holy God and cannot Tolerate sin. God Eyes are too pure to gaze upon Evil and wickedness!! WE reap what we sow, sooner or later. God Is GOD! God Shows Mercy To Whom He Pleases!
**
◄ Romans 9:18 ► King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
**
(Message) Is that grounds for complaining that God is unfair? Not so fast, please. “I’m in charge of mercy. I’m in charge of compassion.” Compassion doesn’t originate in our bleeding hearts or moral sweat, but in God’s mercy. Our Heavenly Father Is The Judge! God hates sin because it is the very antithesis of His nature. God hates sin because He is holy; holiness is the most exalted of all His attributes (Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 6:8). His holiness totally saturates His being. God hates sin because it (enslaves us and will eventually destroy us).
*****
Romans 3:23 King James Version (KJV) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; God hates sin for the simple reason that sin separates us from Him: “But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear” (Isaiah 59:2; see also Isaiah 13:11; Jeremiah 5:25). Another reason God hates sin is that it blinds us to the truth.
**
God hates sin because it lessens our love for Him. The Bible says, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in Him. For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world” (1 John 2:15-16). James warns us of the danger of embracing the world: “You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God” (James 4:4). No one can serve two masters (Luke 16:13), and we must choose between sin and righteousness.
**
As believers, we should hate sin as does God. We are “sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness” (1 Thessalonians 5:5). We must (recognize that God has set us apartt); we are “a holy nation, a people belonging to God” (1 Peter 2:9). We cannot become holy on our own, but God gives us His (Holy Spirit to sanctify us (2 Thessalonians 2:13). We have His promise that He will help us in our struggle against sin (1 Corinthians 1:8).
**
We SHOULD hate sin because it separates us from God. We hate it because it lessens our love and dulls our conscience, because it binds us and blinds us. We hate it because it grieves the Spirit of God (Ephesians 4:30). We Will See If It's God's will to show lauryn mercy! What can wash away Our sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus; What can make Us whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus!~God Bless~

@9:48 you forgot that she's nuts.@7:40 I read that Lauren is about to be put out of her South Orange home

Anonymous said...

@9:57 That has nothing to do with her financial obligation. She is in violation of city ordinance for running a business out of the house. She rehearses and houses visiting musicians. The city sued her and the landlord in November. The land land sued her March 5. They are trying to evict her. She posted a tumblr message related to the situation today.

9:55 PM...TYPOS "Sons/Daughters of the light and day". God has set us apart not apartt. God Is Rich in Mercy! Repentance In the Bible, the word repent means “to change one’s mind.” The Bible also tells us that true repentance will result in a (change of actions) (Luke 3:8-14; Acts 3:19). Acts 26:20 declares, “I preached that they should repent and turn to God and prove their repentance by their deeds.” The full biblical definition of repentance is a change of mind that results in a change of action.
**
◄ Ephesians 2:4 ► King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
**
◄ Ephesians 1:7 ► King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Tracey there's no doubt that you are well versed in scripture and doctrine . However the word says lets all be careful lest we fall . The way you speak doesn't cover Gods love and mercy for humanity , he isn't just a judge . God says not to judge so you are sinning which is the same as Lauren's sin . There is none that is righteous no not one . God came to seek and to save the hoes and to show his mercy to them. He died for us to obtain mercy that's why the vail was ripped from top to bottom . You sound very cold and like the religious leaders that were always at odds with Jesus because of who he hung around and his breaking of the laws . We are in the dispensation of Grace rt now and I hope and pray that Lauren finds grace despite her past she has laid dearly and she has many children that need her I pray that the intercessors all over the world cry out for mercy for her because that's what she needs not jail time . Tracey you sound like a very hurt person in need if healing . No one will want to come to the Christ that you preach of daily . He came to seek and to save the lost not the self righteous . It was a former hoe that the Angels appeared to it was a hoe that helped at time if war when the children if Israel went to scout out the land . Jesus came from a line with hoes . Search the scripture and lighten up you aren't winning anyone with the scriptures you choose . Christ is at the right hand making intercession for us . Because if his love . Peace !

*************
No, You're Wrong! I can Judge Lauryn if I want to because, I have (never) sleep with a married man! I do not do drugs, smoke dope, never have never will. I do not Drink Alcohol, and I pay my taxes on my Rental Properties And Spousal Support. The bible clearly states not to judge (Hypocritically)! Read Your Bible! "What does the Bible mean that we are not to judge others? Christians are often accused of "judging" whenever they speak out against a sinful activity. However, that is not the meaning of the Scripture verses that state, "Do not judge." There is a (righteous) kind of judgment we are supposed to exercise—with careful discernment (John 7:24). When Jesus told us not to judge (Matthew 7:1), He was telling us not to judge hypocritically. Matthew 7:2-5 declares, "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." What Jesus was condemning here was hypocritical, self-righteous judgments of others.
**
In Matthew 7:2-5, Jesus warns against judging someone else for his sin when you yourself are sinning even worse. That is the kind of judging Jesus commanded us not to do. If a believer sees another believer sinning, it is his Christian duty to lovingly and respectfully confront the person with his sin (Matthew 18:15-17). This is not judging, but rather pointing out the truth in hope—and with the ultimate goal—of bringing repentance in the other person (James 5:20) and restoration to the fellowship. We are to speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15). We are to proclaim what God's Word says about sin. 2 Timothy 4:2 instructs us, "Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction." We are to "judge" sin, but always with the goal of presenting the solution for sin and its consequences—the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6).Goodnight~ God Bless~

Tracey aka Ann, give it a rest. This is not CHURCH.COM OR DELUDED-CHRISTAIN-BLACK-GIRL.ORG.

For the most part I just scroll past your comments cuz you just don't get it. If you truly want to save people THEN THIS IS NOT THE FORUM. You need to find a better forum for your fervent religious views. PREACHING AND CONDEMNING PEOPLE ON A GOSSIP SITE MAKES YOU LOOK AND SOUND LIKE A RELIGIOUS NUT.

I'm sure in real life you're a decent person but you're TURNING MORE PEOPLE OFF TO GOD THAN SAVING THEM IN THIS MANNER SO THERE IS NO WAY THIS IS OF GOD. THIS IS MORE FOR YOUR SATISFACTION. SOMETIMES WE GET SO RELIGIOUS WE COMMIT SIN THINKING WE'RE WORKING FOR GOD. WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS NOT OF GOD. IT'S VANITY AND YOU WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE SOULS YOU TURN AWAY FROM GOD.

ALSO GOD IS A GOD OF LOVE, FORGIVENESS AND MERCY. HE'S NOT ALL FIRE AND BRIMSTONE.

THIS IS WHY I DON'T GO TO TYPICAL BLACK CHURCHES WITH ALL THAT HOLINESS, NAME IT CLAIM IT, PROSPERITY CULT DOCTIRNES.

If you want to preach this much then perhaps you should form your OWN CHURCH and stay off the gossip blogs. YOU'RE BEING A HYPOCRITE AND THAT IS A SIN SISTAH!

This anonymous poster denying our tax laws is full of shit. It's a frivolous argument is will most assuredly end you up in jail. Snipes's accountant was talking the same bullshit. The IRS is one of the better companies to owe money too. Way easier than VISA or Mastercard. Just agree to pay that shit and they go away. You wanna fight and bullshit well then you are fucked. Especially if they know you can actually pay what you owe. White folks go to jail behind this shit too.

Leviticus 19:16 You shall not go around as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand up against the life of your neighbor: I am the LORD.

Did you forget to read that verse?? Why are you on a gossip
site to begin with if the bible speaks against gossip and slander? You can't pick and choose which verses to follow as it suits your sin.

R in NYC/7:08 I thank you that's what I was trying to say but you said it better (I'm 12:11am) 8:09 thank you too! Tracey says and does everything Christ fought against . And this isn't the place for all that sending people straight to hell doctrine . I really can't understand why someone so holy would have so much interest in gossip . Her comments about Lauren are so heartless . And God doesn't see n e sin worse than another . Sin is sin so in Gods eyes she's the same as a hoe who sleeps with other people's husbands . Her self righteousness is revolting and sickening and dead wrong

@ 7:17 you obviously dont know what ur talking about because people have one in court with the same argument before the federal reserve act of1913 people didnot psy income tax the only reason any one pays them is because the federal reserve prints our money and charges interest for every dollar printed.This is where ur money goes. It has nothing to do with social programs ie welfare or food stamps. This is why our Forefathers said never let some one else print ur money because they will control ur country. As I said the constitution says ur labor or wages shall not be taxed. Read it sometimes.Even Irs agents have not been able to show the law. Educate urself instead of going along with what ever.

Maybe some of her celebrity friends will come through for her. If I were a celebrity, I would give money towards her debt.

Lauryn this is the same media that has been used to torment entertainers in the past who got out of "line" and now it is showing you it powers to destroy your reputation through slanders, insults, and yes, to make you appear irresponsible, mental derranged and all of the other adjective to make their point. But then I am not telling you something that you don't already know. Get Out Lauryn. This is the mystery of iniquity. This is by far your best work without the hype. It was your heart and the people wanted fantasy. Lauryn you just put yourself in jail signing a record contract with sony. It is like the chicken turning to the fox for help. It sound like the ex-factor, you get out and they hurt you to make you stay.
