I’m not happy to post this at all. But our brother GaryV informed me of something today, that we saw coming way off.
Jamal-Harrison Bryant has filed for a “limited” divorce from his wife and she, Gizzelle Bryant has filed for an absolute divorce from him. Both filed on the same day. There is a lot in the MD court system related to Jamal-Harrison Bryant, that I and others usually don’t talk about. We try to help people see a pulpit pimp’s bad doctrine and try not to speak about other matters unless they hit the news media. But this is on file with the courts and sure to hit the news in time. Really, many of us have held back on some (many) issues with Jamal-Harrison Bryant. Only once have I mentioned his issues regarding accusations of babies outside of his marriage and I did that at the very end of a lengthy post, I pseudo-buried it. Some of us find it best to try and focus on doctrinal issues, because if someone can come to sound doctrine they’ll know how to best deal with any variety of matters in the church. This blog is not a supermarket tabloid and makes no effort to post things just to shock your senses with sensationalism. But this guy is SO BAD and it’s hitting divorce proceedings, so I’ll run advance of the major media on this one.
Below are links to the divorce filings, the “copies” are in Microsoft XPS format. If you can’t see them on the MD court web site, use the copies. You can get Microsoft XPS tools here for free from Microsoft. I won’t be providing copies in any other format.
Basically they each filed for a different kind of divorce.

Now either way you slice this, a man in the middle of these kinds of issues with his wife is not fitting for church leadership. A man in church leadership is to rule his house well and be an example of a good head of household. Jamal-Harrison Bryant has been compromised in so many ways and it’s time for him to step down. (Way past time for him to have stepped down or been put down permanently.) See what scripture, the final authority says regarding church leaders.
|1 Timothy 3:1-7 (New American Standard Bible)
There have been so many scandals and so much mess. And he assumed church leadership it seems being very much a novice, regardless of who his father is. His home is proven to be a mess now. Jamal-Harrison Bryant should remove himself from church leadership voluntarily, or be excommunicated by the AME church organization that he is a part of. As 1 Corinthians 5 instructs, those who continue in evil while claiming the Lord’s name should be removed. Scripture commands that Jamal-Harrison Bryant be rebuked.
|1 Timothy 5:19-20 (New American Standard Bible)
A Christian man does not put his wife away, not even in the “limited” sense 1 Corinthians 7. Given the issues with accusations of things occurring out of the bonds of their marriage. I with great reluctance must say his wife has just cause to leave him if she desires and feels efforts to reconcile failed, Matthew 19:9. It would still be best for them to reconcile, but it appears things are heading in the opposite direction.
Jamal-Harrison Bryant should step down, because his household is not showing to be well managed and no such man should be claiming care for the church. (No such man should be in a position of leadership.)
There are many other reasons why Jamal-Harrison Bryant should leave church leadership. He’s a no good viper pulpit pimp. You can read about that in the related posts below.
