This awareness sets the scene for her discussion about the pleasures of sex and how she longs for sexual intimacy even though she is single. Since she is preaching at a Christian singles conference, however, good, pleasurable sex has to have its consequences. Perhaps this is what is most ironic about these faith-based ministries.
As Bynum expounds on the trials of walking in the path of self-denial, she states: some people think that because I am Prophetess Juanita Bynum, the Lord has taken away my physical desires. Let me inform those people that they are wrong! In fact, even as she tells the audience not to marry for sheets because they should not marry just to have sex, she admits how desirable it is to be in a physical relationship with someone. The physical pleasure found in sexual relationships is a tantalizing opponent.
Instead of castigation and public shame, Bynum preaches that one must seek a covenant with God beyond any other. This is a goal to be pursued at all costs; God must set them free!
At the close of the sermon, Bynum has the audience make a covenant with the Holy Spirit that there will be No More Sheets. As a result of their perceived solidar- ity with Bynum, black women are able to share in her solution as they take this message to others.
They can go from being ashamed and ignored singles to being empowered and committed singles. Her advice was packaged for an audience that she seems to know inti- mately. These messages transmit well through televangelistic mediums because the words and images are literal texts that possess a dominant reading encoded by the preacher. As cultural theorists note, the television or computer screen is 24 Ibid.
This has led to an explosion in faith-based singles ministries, which are a lucrative, multi-million dollar industry, and their messages are not restricted by their denominations or by doctrine, as these ministries multiply based on their use of Scripture and a charismatic televangelist. While Bynum relies heavily on Pentecostal worship in her message, evidenced through her speak- ing in tongues, running in the Spirit, and her use of Satan as trope for going astray, those who entered the market after Bynum have expanded it and made it accessible to more than single black evangelical women.
A key example of a leading black female voice in the faith-based singles movement is Michelle McKinney Hammond, author, relationship expert, and life coach.
She provides evidence that the singles ministry has expanded beyond its stronghold in evangelical and Pentecostal communities because she was reared Episcopalian and currently attends the nondenominational, multiracial Park Community Church in Chicago. As a woman of West Indian and Gha- naian descent, she does not share the same cultural heritage as Bynum, and her singles ministry is purposely interfaith and multiethnic as opposed to focusing primarily on black single Christian women.
Unlike Bynum, McKinney Hammond does not focus exclusively on sexual- ity; instead she expands the market encouraging black women to focus on career advancement, personal well-being, and, of course, a closer connection to God. She teaches that completion is not found in relationships with men, it is only found with God.
However, her messages usually reiterate that women should be subservient, because they are biologically built to receive from men and to be pursued by men after they have realized their ultimate relationship with God. Within this documentary that is centered on singleness as a crisis for black women, there is a celebration of those who live a celibate life for Christ. She exuded a peace about the decision to remain single because she believes that her celibacy is serving a spiritual purpose.
Additionally, these ministries do not advocate a celebration of sexuality.
Instead, they focus on telling women what they can and cannot do. One of the major theological and ethical implications of women choosing to live solely for the Holy Spirit is that they experience a division of their spirituality and sexuality.
This tangible result is evidenced in women who participate in ministries and churches whose conservative ideol- ogy negates their ability to be treated as full citizens in these communities. Another theological underpinning of having women focus completely on their spiritual selves and their union with Christ is that they form an unhealthy expectation of their relationship with Christ.
Marvin M. Her model of manhood is God, and if a man does not live up to the attributes of God she does not deem them worthy of her body. Of course, no man will meet these expectations, but neither is it healthy for her to make Jesus her man. Another woman in the documentary named Valerie reported that when she decided after seven years of celibacy to be intimate with a man, God stepped in and spoke to the man telling him not to touch her.Abhishek Jha.

These means of public shaming serve to instill in black women that following bodily pleasures is not worth the risk. In general, as a black female body, she is a descendant of women denigrated for their ebony form.
This uneasiness with black female sexuality is also what makes these types of faith-based ministries so successful. Morning Glory Peace by Juanita Bynum 4.
