About the Book

A father once taught his son that the two things he should avoid debating are faith and politics. He was adamant that his son avoids political arguments, citing that no one ever wins them because people are passionately stubborn about the powers that represent them. Concerning matters of faith, his father offered the same counsel, claiming people are equally as passionate about the “higher power(s)” they represent. In Straight Talk, against his father’s advice, the author dives into both arguments. Within is a conversation for theocracy over democracy and God’s Will over man’s way. In Straight Talk For Crooked Church, Pastor Armand arms the reader with an awareness of the Divine Design for Church. This read will undoubtedly tear down obstacles that hinder churches from being and functioning as God’s intended Bride. This book is not a vaccination against the challenges of Church leadership or Church scandal. It serves, however, as a kind of blueprint churches need to stand upright and be strong. While critics of the Church are leery of so-called “Jesus freaks,” Straight Talk seeks to correct any misinterpretations about the Church by painting an accurate picture of the Body of Christ, along with its functions, as they were originally intended by its Architect, the Lord Jesus Christ.
