"Watch This" Pt. 2 ~ What Has the Church Become?

All condolence goes out to the remaining family of the person formerly known as Bishop Eddie Long.
(Fox 5 News)  




Question 1: Will Bishop Long step down until these charges and allegations are addressed, put down and he is cleared of criminal charges? Should he do so?

This is partially why:

Here's The Bishop???

Bishop, Was This Picture Sent To Your Wife's Cell Phone?
These young men say that the bishop sent that picture among many to their cell phone, however they could have stolen it along with other items they BROKE INTO THE CHURCH and took.  

Maurice Robinson/ Anthony Flagg
Gold-diggers or Down Low (oops)?









Here's one of the young persons posing (Anthony Flagg) claiming that the Bishop molested and took advantage of him:












Now Here's Anthony Flagg and Maurice Robinson Reppin', talking about making a woman "wet" at school:




Question 2:

Does ANY of what you have seen heard regarding this resemble ANYTHING that models or looks like Christ?

Of one thing I am at least certain...SOMBODY is NOT saved! 

Yes, we pray and continue to pray. All the top tier Christian "entertainers", singers, and mega-church buddies need not try to tell us common folk that we should simply be quiet during this time. You should be ashamed, and may be equally as guilty, because many of you had access to this mess and should have spoken up long ago! No need to "tweet"  and "Facebook" now  as if you're "in the Spirit"! You should have been in the spirit when you were at his church last time and helped him instead of collecting that money.

Now, kids and families have literally been destroyed by the LUST, EXCESS and UNGODLY ASSOCIATIONS of these people and all many of you want to do is align with your ""friends" who gave you a big check and a stage, and now you have so much spiritual advice...GET OUTTA HERE! Yes we are in a storm and God has allowed this for a certain reason...

TRUELY there is a LESSON that WE, the church, MUST learn...that LESSON is that GOD is HOLY and the BIBLE IS RIGHT...Somebody is wrong! 

Luke 12:1-5 ~ "1- In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2- For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3 -Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. 4- And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5- But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him."

Blessed!

  1. Blessings Pastor!

    You are so right!
    I'm reminded of Gal 6:7-8

    7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

    This is carnality as it's finest, and when you smell smoke, you know that there's some "meat" on the grill...or about to be! Sad indeed!

    I'm just continuing to pray for all parties involved and that God's truth shall prevail!

  3. It seems that the most belicose anti-homosexual voices turn out to be the worst offenders.

    Ted Haggard, George Rekers, now Long, with more petty members of the Priestcraft in between.

  4. It appears that these guys had something in their hearts no matter what their social position or belief regarding homosexuality.

    Now, some have said, "we must think of the victim"...I agree we must and I know mind control is damaging, but this seems to be a whole bunch of grown folk or folk that knew better that were out of control and caught up in their garbage.

    You all know I'm a victims advocacy person especially in clergy sexual misconduct cases such as this is shaping up to be, however there was an indirect aggression and concealment from these victims which causes me to classify them somewhat differently. Victims normally don't conspire to do criminal activity if they are devastated beforehand. I am aware of some women who cut seats and vandalize cars or damage clothes but in those cases there is usually a slightly different psychological position or intent. Here these guys straight break into the church. This act automatically not only involves the members, but also involves their supposed employer...Who besides Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence in "Nothin' To Loose" will vandalize their employer if they are simply jilted by a lover, even if that lover is the boss??? and then sue and place it in the lawsuit???

    What kind of stupidity is that???

    "You molested me, I caught you molesting somebody else, I got mad so I robbed you and now I'm suing you for everything you got, and I've got some text messages and cell phone pics to back it up"...That's IDIOTIC!!!

    I don't know, I may be totally wrong, but I've spoken to people in this type of situation for a number of years and this one doesn't seem to add up.

    The thing that is damaging is that things like this have been rumored regarding Long for a number of years...I HOPE the rumor is not true and will be dispelled, but he should dress more appropriately and adjust both his associations and direction of ministry.

    God won't share HIS glory, no matter who we are.

  5. ""You molested me, I caught you molesting somebody else, I got mad so I robbed you and now I'm suing you for everything you got, and I've got some text messages and cell phone pics to back it up""

    This sums up what I've been feeling about this whole fiasco, along with the fact that if, again I say if, this is true then why wait 3-4 years?

  6. Supertindent,

    you really know how to put things.

    Just like you said, if he's not guilty of these charges (well, we did just find out in the news that the lady with the acid on her face had faked the whole thing about somebody attacking her)so anything is possible, he may not be guilty--but look at all the other things that's problematic about this situation.

    The word says "Do not let your good be evil spoken of."
    Why would a bishop associate with a young person who has such language? Why would a bishop find it ever appropriate to wear the things he wears in the pulpit or to take such pictures? If he is such a great bishop, then why weren't these young men lives changed spiritually--where are the spiritual fruit, that given this youtube clip and recent robberies, they appear not to bear?

    There is much lacking here...furthermore, I've always been turned off by him years ago--because you would watch him on TV butchering the scripture. He would take stuff out and stretch to make it mean something it doesn't...It annoyed me to no end that my former pastor in Illinois was following him for years (which I totally disagreed with but didn't want to say anything, because he felt Long was his spiritual father and he was going to grow his church like Long did), I moved to Texas years later and the Lord showed me just a few months ago that my former pastor and his church have dropped into heresy and into seducing spirits (which has been confirmed by a recent visit)...and all I could think about how my former pastor was a good person but he was under the wrong covering

    ...so, the good in this situation that seems pretty dark is that at least there can be no more casualties--no more people looking up to these carnal men, just because they got thousands for membership.

    We've got to start looking at character and spiritual things--I mean the church really has dropped the ball...you would think we were unbelievers in the way we judge who is spiritual or worthy of leadership...it's ridiculous sometimes; but this incident is really going to cause the saints to do some spiritual re-evaluation

  7. Rogers,

    You said"We've got to start looking at character and spiritual things--I mean the church really has dropped the ball...you would think we were unbelievers in the way we judge who is spiritual or worthy of leadership"

    Now THAT is insightful my brutha! That's the lesson and the message.

    The CHURCH has accepted another standard which is NOT ordained and centered of GOd. None of these charges are about anything having to do with righteousness...In fact Paul in Galations makes it plain, there is NO LAW against any fruit of the Spirit.

    The church accepts the financially wealthy as a sign of spirituality and God centeredness...THEY say "God got to trust somebody with the riches of the kingdom" that is fallacious garbage...these men are no more "trusted" by God than any flesh...flesh cannot be trusted...Only GOd and what HE does through the flesh.

    I sat there and watched Ted Haggard get whooped last night on Anderson Cooper 360 by a homosexual minister...why? Because he POWERLESS and rejected of God. Did he repent? Maybe but these guys need to know it may cost the rest of your life's work to engage in this generations sin and to play with God as they do...

    It's time to turn and it's time for a change...this church has rejected God and God has rejected them.

  8. Bishop Long: "We will arise through this situation, and go forward, and we are moving forward,"..."I have never dealt with anything like this before. I have been under attack before, but everything else has been different levels and different challenges,"..."Know that I am also praying for the families and the young men who are accusing. I always operate in the spirit of love, and we are going to move through this,"

    In the coming days I will be careful to notice the apologetic for the Bishop's actions here...I will observe the difference between abject denial and explanations for certain actions.

    So far the spokesman has NOT denied that these pictures were sent to these young men, or that the trips mentioned did not occur with all the parties involved. He has only tried to contextualize and justify the sending of the pictures and deny events that supposedly occurred in private.

    I believe we will find these contextualizations in the bishop's response Sunday. I personally will be looking to hear it.

  9. Did anyone at the church or otherwise stop to ask the question "what if" these young men are correct? I mean with all the support shown for the man, who is supporting the healing of the people...all people, victims included???

    No, we're going to fight! OK...lets see what GOd says regarding this...

  10. To avoid siding any part of this conversation I will simply pour facts.

    1. Your post seems OBVIOUSLY biased, siding Bishop Eddie Long for whatever reason. if you're going to analyze their "acts" you should do so objectively and simply present the Word refuting or endorsing your statements.

    2. Mathw 7:1. JESUS NEVER condemned anyone (John 8: 11). Let it be clear that Christ does NOT condone SIN however I don't recall Jesus passing judgements on people.
    "Let the 1st amongst you without sin cast the first stone"

    3. If Bishop Eddie Long is innocent, God will be his Vindicator. If he is guilty however, God also will be the Vindicator and you will be wrong for siding wrong.

    As a Pastor I assume you should be the Light of the Word not a judge, you have no position for that whatsoever.

    A light of objection, let's see how the Spirit leads you to answer.

  11. Mr. Dapper,

    You said:"As a Pastor I assume you should be the Light of the Word not a judge, you have no position for that whatsoever."

    Now how did you come to that conclusion? Were you judging or were you telling what you feel is a truth?

    Please explain to the audience how when you speak on issues (such as having spoken on this) your statements are not defined as judgement or being judgemental?

    Thank you.

  12. In the $15 to $25 million settlement there was another accuser. A 5th accuser that arose during settlement talks and he is aa gay as is possible to be. There is no doubt about him.

    Can we believe that this man was not on the DL? This has become an utter impossibility.
