Reports are that Eddie Long’s Wife Is Leaving Him

It appears that the obvious may be starting to take place.  Vanessa Long, wife of Bishop Eddie Long is apparently planning to leave her husband.  At least there are reports that she’s moving out of the house and taking her child with her.   Various sources are stating the following:

Well-placed spies for The Mo’Kelly Report and long-time members of New Birth are alleging that Vanessa Long, the First Lady of New Birth has moved out of the house, in fact taking one of the children with her due to the scandal.

Even if his wife leaves him, Eddie Long will still have plenty of friends.  Fellow pastor Creflo Dollar recently stated that he believes Eddie Long already has a ticket into heaven.  Also, there is the mysterious woman who walked onto the stage and handed Bishop Long a stack of money that would put a drug dealer to shame.

Ever since Long was accused of sexual coercion by four young men in his care, the black church has been forced to ask itself tough questions.  Some argue that a sin is a sin, whether it is telling a fib or sleeping with  underage parishioners of the same sex.  There are others who believe that Long should speak up and tell the truth about what happened.  Thus far, there is nothing but silence.

    Bishop Eddie Long is definitely going to hell…Not sure what Gospel Creflo Dollar is referring to. 

    • Guest

      Who is to say, but God? I do not condone his behavior, but where are you going? It seems to me that you only have control over your OWN destination. Many people in the Bible did horrible things…even David after he became king was a murderer. What about Paul, and even Moses?

        @7996d768518d910bad1e0e2610b65400:disqus  AMEN AMEN AMEN they did their dirty in the bible and God still showed mercy unto them and blessed them all David even conspired to get another man’s wife in fact he did. Preach on

      Thats the beautiful thing about God He said He will have mercy on whom He will and before you put the Bishop in hell please make sure thats not where you are headed.

    What is the deal here? Dr Boyce, your idea of Black info is too biased. Yes, we as Blacks are exploited, underpaid, under-educated, you name it. But is is apparent that in your eyes we are “just victims”.   Yes, it is a mess with Eddie Long, but I would like to know if you are a Christian (born-again…practicing, Jesus as Lord…confide in Jesus, Christian) ? I do not think so! The way things are written only makes us look that much worse! Could you balance it off with something good or encouraging for the youth or those who are trying, are educated and still trying to impact the Black community in a positive way. When all is said and done, we still have to live in the USA despite its flaws. I am a Black, educated , dark-skinned, 65 year old, Veteran….so there is HOPE!  Yes, maybe I NEED  to start my own website if I want something positive. The sad part is that people ‘FEED’  more off negativity!

      I agree with you, we need to be more positive. We do have to live in the United States and it is a wonderful country.  We have a wonderful president and first family!  We have so many things to be thankful for and positive about.  Let us try not to forget it.

    There are plenty of women waiting or already sharing their beds with muscle shirt Eddie…One thing black women go to church to do, is fantasize about the preacher as their man, working them overtime in their bedrooms, while these women keep yelling, sweet jesus, lord help me…Muscle shirt Eddie is a pimp, he already had one of his ho’s come up to the alter and drop a bundle from all the ho’ing and hustling she was doing for her man, bad toupe as in terrible, wearing muscle shirt Eddie, and not this Jesus Christ character they are told is their bridegroom in the hereafter…This wife of muscle shirt Eddie will be taken care of like these four boys and once again muscle shirt Eddie, will open some more franchise churches to payoff this divorce settlement…Look around the churches and see if they are not made up of 90% single women and children that fill these pews, no self respecting man in his right mind, will let another man pimp his azz, or have him doing trix so another man can live better than him…

        • Nubianwisdom

          Hotep! I totally agree with what you said. We are dead spiritually and think because we can quote a scipture that was passed down from our opressors, that we know the Creator. These same people on here, defending him talking about not judging and forgiveness are all damn hippocrites. If this happened to them or someone they loved and it happened by what they would call a thug on the street, they wouldn’t be talking about forgiveness or judgements. Everyone judges. That’s the only way to decipher and make decisions. That’s why I don’t deal with religious people. They are deadly. Gain spirituality.

    • Leta

      THERE IS A REASON WHY THEY ARE MADE UP OF 90 PERCENT WOMEN.  BECAUSE OUR BLESSED BROTHERS HAVE BEEN (MIA) MISSING IN ACTION NOT JUST IN THE CHURCH BUT IN THE HOME, THE SCHOOLS, AND MOST IMPROTANTLY IN THEIR CHILDRENS LIVES.  IF YOU ARE A DEVOTED FATHER TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS CONCERNING YOUR CHILDREN THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO YOU HOWEVER DONT GET IT TWISTED WE BLACK WOMEN ARE NOT THAT SHALLOW TO RUN TO A CHURCH AND FANTASIZE ABOUT A PASTOR!  YOU WANT TO REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY START REACHING OUT TO OUR YOUND BLACK BROTHERS SO THEY DONT HAVE TO BECOME PREY NOT JUST TO THE PASTORS BUT TO THE PREDATORS OUTSIDE THE CHURCH AS WELL!

  • Leta

    The handwriting is on the wall. It is time to awaken because our redemption draws nigh!  No one knows who is making it in to heaven but the Father.  He will have mercy and compassion on whom He will.  My prayers are for everyone involved.  Especially Mrs. Long and her children.  Whether Bishop Long is guilty or not he is still Gods’ anointed!  I was sick to the stomach after hearing Pastor Creflo address the people that left the church in the manner that he did.  When Gods’ sheep are scattered, God does not take that lightly.  For Pastor Creflo to tell them they are not wanted in his house was just wrong.  There is only ONE CHURCH! it has nothing to do with color.  For those of you that think God is a joke just keep living!  It matters not whether you are in the church house, white, house, down to your house, God is pulling the covers.  You can choose life or death and choose this day whom you will serve which is not the preacher, teacher, pastor, evangelists, or apostles but we are to serve God.  Continue to allow the world to watch us tear one another down instead of lifting each other up.  How can we bring glory to Gods name in all this?  II was at new birth for two years and was blessed by the preached word.  Despite this fall the church has helped many many families.  Please reverence God by loving our neighbors as ourselves.  A righteous man falls 7 times but God upholds him with His right hand.  No matter where the chips fall I can assure God has the Bishop and the 4 young men also.

        Lets say he is guilty.  Should there be some resposibillity placed on the parents who were allowing their teenage sons to travel around the world and get all these expensive gifts?  Are were they partakers of the gifts also which blinded them to the fact that they were being druigged with over the counter ambien and taken afvantage of?  for real though!

      The children of ISRAEL waited 400 years to be released from bondage. We were set free and established our own communities in the west and were literally railroaded out of the land we cultivated. When we fought for this country(shall we say saved this country), in both world wars, we were denied the G.I. Bill funds. We could have built our own with our own. This land has given to us and taken from us. But remember, not all of God’s children made it to the promise land. God never has and never will accept the old way of thinking in His new land!

      We as single parents have been carrying the burden of raising our children year after year because the fathers have become donors only.  I can’t speak for all women so I will speak for myself.  I go to an awesome church and have much love and respect for my pastor and his wife being that he is transparent and doing an awesome work in the life of the next generation.  At the same time I am a woman of God and a praying mother also and have a personal autentic relationship with the Lord. So I know how to boldy go to His throne of grace and ask for help in the time of trouble.  When it comes to money in the church yes there is much manipulation going on in the body of Christ when it comes to giving but if you study the Word of God for yourself there is no need to be duped.

  • Dr. Johnson

    Yes…God’s mercy endures forever. However, there are promises, positions and outcomes that he withholds in part due to our transgressions though they have been removed as far as the east is from the west. Now, you are not telling me that if this man had sexual relations with 4 men or women who were placed within his charge as an undersheperd that God’s word supports his remaining in place as the undershepherd who represents the chief shepherd Jesus Christ. This man should at the very least temporarily step aside from these duties if not permanently walk away. I will love him and any other brother and sister in the Lord for all of my days but to submit to them as a pastor after these indictments is another matter.

    • Leta

      I hear you brotha and understand why it would hard to sit under him.  Could you sit under a man that had his mistresses husband killed who served him faithfully in the armed forces so he could sleep with his wife?  Im assuming your answer will be no.  Well this was David who God said was a man after His own heart after he did the unthinkable.Thats why God said He will have mercy and compassion on whom he will.

      • jcinme14

        Hi Leta: Who said B-long is similar to David? He is more like the false teacher and false prophet that will come in the last days.  2Peter 2:1 says,  “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, [and] bring on themselves swift destruction.” B-long reminds me more of the Saul who was chasing David, than David himself. Still, I would like to see B-long confess, repent, and step aside to let someone else take over his leadership. Anything less is risking “swift destruction.”
        Many scriptures came to my mind regarding B-long, among them was 1Timothy 3, which describes the qualifications of being a Bishop and Deacon. Homosexuality doesn’t fit into the criteria.
        Finally, I think that each and every one of us should be careful that we don’t become one that will not forgive.  Luke 6:37 says, “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
        We should be able to forgive anyone, just as our Father forgives us. I am anxious for B-long to ask forgiveness because I am ready to forgive him immediately. I pray that he confesses, repents and steps down, but I also pray that he becomes an authentic member in the body of Christ. Blessings to you and yours.

        • Leta

          What is definition of a false prophet?  A prophet speaks the oracles of God.  And a false prophet would be the opposite.  God said we are to forgive 7 times 70. Most importantly  God is the ultimate One who forgives sin.  We all say what we would do if it was me.  Personally I have been in a situation where the evidence appeared to be truth with an all white jurors.  The officer that was suppossed to testify on my behalf switched sides before coming to trial.  Even my attorney was trying to get me to plea bargain because the evidence looked over whelming. But all I had was the truth and the Word of God that I quoted in the bathroom every time I had a break.  The end result I was found not guilty and my neighbors found guilty.  Im talking about God being a lawyer in the courtroom.  Had I been accused of these type of charges and was totally innocent I would have fought until my last breath but Im not Bishop Long.  What is done in the dark will surely come to light and I believe as time unfolds the truth will come out at God’s appointed time only.

          • Merwordup

            The truth is already out but you people who try to over over-spiritualize everything can’t seem to use discernment that God gave us.The scriptures say Eddie is guilty. Matt 18:15-18 explains when 2 or more witnesses testified against a brother he needs to repent. If not they the private meeting needs to go in public. I am really sick of people not using church discipline when it is cleary lad out in scripture and religious people like you who can’t understand the concept of it.

          • Leta

            Brotha go back and read that scripture again. It states let every word be establish in the mouth of two or three witnesses.  With each of those young men as well as Bishop Long where are the witnesses that can confrm what went on behind closed doors, with each young man?  Lets keep it real!

          • kar

            I agree with you let every word be established in the mouth of two or three witnesses yes but, when when you already have to three individuals conforming,agreeing and stating the same thing do you really need additional people to verify their accounts.  My statement may in fact be wrong but the truth will eventually  come to past.

      • ADA

        Yes. However, you forget that David owned up to his sin and repented.  “He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes [them] will have mercy.” Prov. 28:13 
        David was a man after God’s own heart because he had a true heart of repentance when confronted with his sin.  I have seen no repentence in this instance.

      • http://profiles.google.com/greeneink Renee Greene

        Bishop Long and King David are not anything close to one another in the spirit realm. Never were and never will be.

      • Millnerbryant

        David also had a son out of those sin that died…the point is that you have to reap the harvest you sowed even if GOd has compassion on whon he will…David is a great illustration of God’s Mercy on those that deligently seeks him….That type of Sin can’t be swept under a rug 1) because he’s held accountable for the many souls at this church and he body of Christ as a whole. 2) You can’t stand be for you people or peers and not give an account for why you are being accused and you then settle out of court..C’mon Son!!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carla-Davis/728331269 Carla Davis

        @Leta.  I hear you too girl, but David, at the very least, repented.  David was Godly sorrowful but Long is wrong.  The so-called Bishop has yet to do, and that’s a big difference.  Admission versus denial.  Furthermore, I’m not going to give anyone a dime of my money (oh, yeah, but it was everyone else’s tithes/offerings, forgot about that) to mediate a lie.

    • Htownsphynest

      I whole heartedly agree to what you are saying. I live here in Atlanta from what I am hearing he only has a 1/3 of his congregation left. Now I know that we aren’t supposed to judge others but his rebuttal to his undiscretion and the settlement are enough for his congregation to force him out. Now everyone is redeemable in God’s eyes but Eddie Long hasn’t confessed to his wrong doing nor asked for forgiveness. This is why I don’t believe that he shouldn’t be in the pilpit. 

      • Leta

        How do you know if Bisop Long has not confessed and repented before God who is the most important one to confess to. The bible says owe no man anything but to love him.  You are right we all are redeemable.  Gods gifts and callings are without repentance.  He is accountable to God first and if it is Gods’ will for him to step down then it will happen.  For the young men that got paid lets see if they are in counseling for being taken advantage of by the pastor.

        • Merwordup

          Obviously he didn’t. If he did he would have did that publicly since his transgressions are of public knowledge. This is not the time to make yourself feel self-righteous that you aren’t judging someone when a pastor no less is in condemnation.

          • Leta

            Okay brotha I will agree with my advesary quickly.  It has nothing to do with being self righteous.  My truth is what I live and experience daily just like your truth is your experiences.  Im not hatin God bless you and have a great day.

        • Dplatinum04

          @Leta. Even if BLong confessed to God, he still has an obligation as a shepherd of God’s people; a leader of God’s church. Yes, most of the time when we sin, it affects other people in our life – sometimes directly and others indirectly. However, a lot of us also do not have a big following or lead a massive congregation of people who are looking to us as a spiritual leader. Most of us do not get up every Sunday or Wednesday and go to different groups of people all over the country speaking to word of God to thousands, perhaps millions of people. Even the men that have fallen in politics have had the “guts or humility” to come forth in their promiscuity and confess. Even David confessed and repented. But, how can someone confidently continue to lead a congregation of people (church) who had not even come forward to allow their followers to understand the basis of their decision or action taken in the settlement of money of the accusers. I could only imagine if Solomon, known as the wisest man, was the judge, BLong probably would’ve been put to death. It may have been easy to believe innocence if there was one accuser. But when there are 3-4 individuals saying the same thing – com’on now….you must think that something is terribly wrong – not to mention the scandalous pictures that were in the public (in which BLong did not have is wedding ring on at the time the pic was taken). 
          Yes, God forgives; He has mercy and will deliver us. But as well, he will humble the proud. He says that vengeance is His. These young men may have some $$$ in their pockets, but they will always have the memory in their minds and hearts.

      Dr. Johnson, It sounds to me like you have forgotten the word forgivemess! If you won’t forgive your brother, then God will not forgive you. So, are you trying to imply here from your tone and words of speech that you have been without sin? Do you know that the Bible says that the person who is puffed up at someone about their sin is in the greater sin? Put your hand in a fist and stop pointing your finger and READ YOUR BIBLE AND BE A DOER OF THE WORD! It will help YOU get into Heaven.

      • Ebony Blacksmith

        It’s kinda hard to forgive someone who has neither confessed nor asked for forgiveness.  Stating the facts does not constitute “judging”.  It is what it is.

    destruction and its congergation will continue to summer to suffer the shame the leader has brought upon it. 2thimothy chapter 3 verse 1-7 is a good source of reading material.it gives a good description of the state of mankind. and the bibl was written hundreds of
    years ago but god in his mighty wisdom saw that this would mankind today.
    sorry for his family .

      you are so right . religion is all about the money and how many people are in the chruch and who give the most amount

      Real is always real, never changes, only BS changes; the preachers can do the money game, because they do not believe in what they are preaching to the flock anyway, they are stuff players.

    SUBJECT:  Please don’t be so hard on Bishop Eddie Long without being hard on ourselves….
    TO:  All who love truth on all levels not just with fallen religius leaders!  Will you also become concerned about Georgia Workers Rights?  http://kvici.blogspot.
    Pastor Eddie Long life and outreach will never have the outreach as America’s Largest retail Giant Wal-Mart Stores Inc.,  Well, if Bishop Eddie Long mistreated or misguided human beings what about we who contribute our dollars to other religious leaders without asking the cutting edge questions. 
    But we allow retailers and other employers to use American Workers without a single word.  Have you ever questioned how many workers are wrongfully terminated in an “At Will to work State. wherein workers can be terminated for good cause, bad cause or for no cause at all. 
    Therefore, let us not just focus on this fallen Pastor but let us focus on mistreatment al all levels of human existances.  Please let us go beyond our Black Religious leaders alone.  We must help each others and work to impove upon what is in the best interest of our children for coming generations.
    We as Georgians must stop returning and voting for Georgia Legislators that like Bishop Long too often let us all down.  And its time for a change!
    Did Bishop Eddie Long Stand up for Georgia Workers Rights? If not, don’t blame him.  Blame yourself and work to make things better!

      excuse me this is not about Walmart, this is about taking advantage of a minor, sexually that is.  How can you compare this to Eddie Long standing up for Legislators, why not let you children hang out with him, and see what happens since you believe in him.

    • Yepme2

      Your concern for Georgia Workers Rights, is valid.  If I may, I would appreciate an opportunity to enlighten you.  Voting is not going to do it, has not happened in our life time.  Politicians are a commodity, they are bought, they are for sale.  You do not vote for politicians, you buy them.  The reality is before your eyes, if you peer through the lens of reality.  I do not understand why so many choose to deny this fact.

    I want to see the BLACK CHURCH take up the Dr. King left it : march in the streets.  There should be a church in the streets 24 hours a day marching to address and focus on the concerns of the Black Community.  We lost our way when we got focused on man’s 30 pieces of silver.  I want to see Eddie Long’s Church do a major , no holes barred, march and prayer vigil in Atlanta for a cure to AIDS and other illnesses that plague our people.

I’ll answer my own question, wear out the leather in some damn good shoes, gave you corns on you toes, and waste your damn time…Finance has always been the means to solve our problems…Black people’s economic might in the US is the fourth largest worldwide, larger than Canada’s total GDP…Imagine if we would as a people come together and put that behind something more concrete like building our own banks, Africatown, or whatever name we want to call it, we would be a threat…Go into any state in the union and you will find a Chinatown, little Italy, little Mexico, etc, but we prefer to go to Chili’s, Applebee’s, Red Lobster’s etc and sit next to whitey rather than do for self as the Hon Marcus Garvey has said over ninety five years ago…All the damn money that you’ll gave to these churches, letting these preachers live in multi-million dollar mansions, send their children to private schools and the best colleges, while your broke azzes have to contend with bad  schools, over crowded classrooms, and your garbage getting picked up once instead of twice weekly…Stop supporting these damn churches and support yourselves, dont you people hates being slaves or trix for these pork chops, biscuit eating pimps?

        Shakka Im going to pray for you!!!!!  You make very valid points burt dont lump all churches into being bad, that just is not the case.  I beg to differ as far as what the marches accomplished back in the 60s.  It wasn’t just black people that put their lives on the line but some white folks were tortuted and killed also.  If we were to form a black nation why would we want to be a threat to others.  Is that the purpose for becoming one?  When you limit yourself to being surrounded by one race you limit your growth.  If you truly love God and believe that he made humanity in his image we all have something to add to the table regardless of color.  The white man is really not our enemy but our mindset and how we have come to believe that the white man keeps us from succeeding.  Dont get me wrong there are those who make it hard for us however when you come to recognize your value and self worth no man can keep you down but self!

    A good wife doesn’t leave a good husband. In short, if Mrs. Long files for divorce from Mr. Long over this mess then he must be guilty of having adulterous homosexual relations with the young males who accused him. 

    Regardless of whether or not he had sexual/homosexual relations with anyone, Mr. Eddie Long abused his position and influence. He should step down, and not one dollar of the congregations financial resources should be spent to pay-off his SETTLEMENT to the families of the young men. If individuals want to donate privately…that is their personal choice, and should be done outside of the church.

    Everyone is talking about Bishop Eddie Long, but what about the young men?  What about other young men in the church?  Should Bishop Long be registered as a sex offender to protect other young men.  Should the legal system get involved?  Has good friend, Creflo Dollar asked any of these questions?  I would also suggest psychologist counseling for all involved, the young men, the bishop, his wife, his children and all the many church members who need it who are wondering what to believe and not to believe.  This is a very sad situation.  It is important to do the best that can be done to give everyone the help they need.

      To those of you who are commenting on here about this situation. What does the Word of God say in reference to how we should address  this matter?  Remember the carnal man cant understand the things of the spirit because they are spiritually discerned.Bishop Long and the young men and God know what took place and please know God will right every wrong at His appointed time.

      • Merwordup

        Here we go again with no scripture to back up what you are saying. I am glad that God gave us instructions but clearly some people didn’t pick up their bibles and read it. Here it goes since you don’t seem to know.

        1 Corinthians 5: 1-2
        It is actually reported that there is(A) sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans,(B) for a man has his father’s wife. 2And(C) you are arrogant! Ought you(D) not rather to mourn? Let him who has done this be removed from among you. 

        Plain and too the point. Nothing saying that we have to ” wait and God will right every wrong at HIs appointed time”. If we used that same flawed, inept knowledge did nobody will go to jail. I know I sound harsh but please research church discipline. 

        • Leta

          Brotha thank you for breaking out the Word and you are not harsh at all.the scripture you quoted was very good.  I still say that what is done in the dark will come to light at Gods appointed time.  The bottom line is not ner one of us have the authority to send anyone to heaven or hell. Again if the Bishop is guilty he will pay a price and if the young men have lied they will pay a price.  In the end only those involved know the truth.  Why cant we pray for all involved.

            “Whatever is done in the dark will come to the light” is allegory, the whole bible(book) is written in allegory by whitey to keep you forever under their clutches…Done in the dark and coming to the light, is to tell us darkies that it does not matter what we do, whitey will always find out, so don’t even try to get over on whitey…This is the same concept used on blacks to keep us on the plantation and afraid to run away…Well slave you have been freed for over one hundred forty eight years, it’s time to put down the rake and bible and walk off the plantation…

  • Jake

    Well, here we go again, with all the problems in the black community you would think black preachers would put the money back into the community.  The preacher always say you can’t take it with you so give it to me.  Black folks will always be at the bottom, because too many of us beleive in the Eddie Longs instead of God.  And I know we should have Hope, but Hope is a feeling, not a plan.  Black folks are still depending on the Eddie Longs for hope and salvation.

  • Sassysista

    It is not just Bishop Long.  Pastors of these Mega Churches see themselves as gods and wealthy elitists.  I belong to a church in Nashville,TN.  It is a Mega church.  The pastor(JW Walker of Mt Zion) preachers the word, does his theatrics, stirs up the congregation’s emotions with moving music and song.  Then, they ask you for a special gift to pay off an indebted church building that you have no say in how it is run, who is hired to work there, nothing.  The message has always been:  give us your money and frankly, if the donation is not generous enough, you are a non entity.  He lives in the wealthy community of brentwood in a mansion in a gated community.  I remember shaking his hand briefly and was trying to tell him I enjoyed his message, he looked right past me to the next congregant as if to say, move on .  i will always remember his coldness.  He told us once, make sure if he is counseling us, we need to talk about the issue in 15 minutes, because there is little time to dawdle.  I cannot believe I even went back.  so many single black women flock there looking for validation, or pie in the sky reinforcement.  but at the end of the day, he drives his fleet of luxury vehicles back to his gated home and the members of mt zion, bless our misguided hearts, go back to our situations  to fend for ourselves.  OUr church does not have a track record for financially assisting its members in any substantial way.  in fact, before they help you, your tithing record is pulled.  IF you are not a faithful tither, you are referred to big brothers or some other organization.  So sad.

      You are at the threshold of cleansing your mind of the quagmire of BS, dripping from the lips of cold blooded hustlers, who have no regards for the minds they are abusing.  The fact that you recognize certain realities of your experience with your church is very encouraging. 

      The point you made, although you recognize the flaws, you keep going back for more is significant. It is a syndrome, requiring a strong effort to disconnect.  You are caught up in a syndrome of mind abuse from the preacher, the same as a husband or boyfriend abusing their companion or a pimp abusing his lady.  No matter how brutal the spouse or the pimp, the abused returns for more. 

      The fact, you have the courage to speak out to the public relative to your experience and how you feel about it, is encouraging and I believe, you deserve better than you are experiencing. 

      The next step to your freedom of mind is to question internally all religious concepts, remember, they are only concepts.  I assure you, if you question the concepts, you will experience a moment of fear to a degree you may never have previously experienced.  The key is, take small steps in questioning the concepts, do a little each day or however you space it out. You will find each time, the fear lessens and eventually, you burst through the fear zone into a realm of peace, unmeasured in confidence and a feeling only you can appreciate. 

      I know of what I speak, I went through the experience, the fear was overwhelming the first time, I had to stop thinking about it, but later, I had the courage and determination to follow up and each time, the fear was overwhelmed with reality and I felt stronger.  The day that I emerged from the valley of fear, I was estatic with joy and a feeling of freedom, I have enjoyed since.  It feels good not to be bound to the bondage of religious stuff players. I have the freedom of mind to explore universal realities in finding my spiritual guidance.

      My religion is reality, my faith is in mathematics and universal principles, they do not BS you, they are infinitely real.  Only the mind is capable of producing BS and expressed through the written and spoken word. 

      May the strength of reality be your eternal companion.

        Hey Yepme2: You sounded exactly like Lucifer when you replied to Sassysista. You’re in far more danger than her! Jesus Christ is the only way! Your universal sweet talk is nothing but deception. You sound like a major league backslider. I don’t have the answers to your dilemma except fervent prayer and also that God can fix anything. I once met a man who was a minister for 12 years. This man stopped believing one day. I’ll pray for him and I will pray for you. Don’t doubt Jesus Christ. Trust Him. He will let you know what time it is. He will come into your heart and life. Humble yourself to the Creator! You are clay in the Potter’s hands. Your head is swollen from your own deceitfulness and the cares of this world. Seek the Lord diligently and you will find Him. Blessings to you and yours.

          Do not cast your pearls before swine!  Some of those commenting are speaking from the natural mindset but when you are dealing with the spritual things of God they must be spiritually discerned.  Often times Gods way of doing things makes no sense to the natural mind.  Example: Love your enemies is not a natural thing to do, pray for those who despitefully use you, is not a natural thing to do, turn the other cheek, not there yet is not a natural thing to do and the list could go on.

          • jcinme14

            Hi Leta: You are probably correct regarding ‘pearls before swine’ , but Yepme2 sounded so confused. God draws His people to His Son, but we can intercede and pray for the unsaved to be drawn to Christ. Peace & blessings to you and yours.

            Why the hell don’t you people take your medicaid cards and go get your meds? You’ll need to be tranquilized or put into straight jackets, have your bibles taken away from you and made to read books without religious themes…

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Shakka-Zulu/1379420279 Shakka Zulu

            What a crock of shit you people are spilling, don’t you have something better to do with yourselves rather than tag team and spill your garbage? You people need your damn meds, and maybe some Jack Daniels to go along with your prozac to hell mello your azzes out…

        • Yepme2

          Sassysista and I, stated our true experienece and observations.  I ask in all sincerity, do not pray for me, praying has not done you any good, you are still delusional and pathetic.  You do not have the courage to expereience the challenge I went through, so there is no way you will ever know, your mind has been damaged beyond repair, relative to your fears. 

          In regards to your praying; have you ever read or heard what Jomo Kenyatta stated?  A quote from him:
          “When the missionaries came to Africa.
          They had the bible and we had the land. 
          They taught us to pray with our eyes closed.
          When we opened them.
          We had the bible in our hands.
          And they had the land.”

          How can you carry the message of the slave master so willingly to pass on to our people, crippling their minds, if you had the courage to challenge with your mind the concepts of the religion you embrace, you will find out for yourself what to believe.  No one can save you but you, the evidence is showing, you are secure in an insecure position. 

          You should be ashamed of yourself, you are no different than the corner drug dealer, peddling a stimulus that does damage to the mind.  To be perfectly frank, “You are a junkie,” addicted to BS

          • Dewindom

            Yo Yep: It’s easy to see that the Bible has been twisted, misinterpreted and misused for a variety of reasons by a variety of people. Don’t sweat the small stuff. You are blessed that you live in a day and time that allows you to seek Jesus Christ without all the historical baggage of burning witches and enslaving men, etc. Just seek Him. Put away your pride and worldly knowledge. Just seek Him. He is real, and your Creator. Seek Him diligently. You will find Him. God Bless you, Yep.

            My creator is my mama and daddy who had sex and created me in love, some man in the sky is not my creator or savior, fool…Have you seen this Jesus character with all the seeking that you have been doing? How real is this jesus dude that your broke azz has to pay tithes and offering to support a man to eat and live better than you? Why has jesus not come out the clouds and rapture your azz and get you off this blog? You make no damn sense…The amen you’ll say in your prayers is the only thing true in your book, since it refers to Amen Ra, the Kemetian god (Egypt)  the christian religion was plagiarized from, fool…

          No you do.  You worship a man as a god.  By the way please explain to me why the church will not preach the truth that Mary and Joseph were not married and that makes Jesus Christ a illegitimate and  born out of wedlock.

          But yet you worship him as a god and you believe the lie the bible tells you that he is the son of G’d?

          Something is wrong here.

        Since you would like to believe in mathmatics as your reality, Lets say your house is on fire and the only way you can get out of the fire is if someone removes the iron bars that have you locked in.  Call on 2 plus 2 equals four and see how that works for you and if you still have breath in your body if your matnmatics doesn’t work try calling on God and you only have to say His name once and see what happens.  He truly is a very present help in the time 24/7 of trouble!

        • Yepme2

          There you go again, showing your ignorance relative to math and the bible.  The only book in the universe in all languages that has no contradictions is the book of math.  Can you state that about the bible with a straight face.

          Again you are assuming; I have never lived in a house with bars, I have had the experience in a time when many, did not have a lock on their doors.  I notice you are posting quite often in response to others thoughts, I also notice, you never respond with rebutal that refutes what is stated; you only reiterate the same old tired and stupid answers, expressing your need of your beliefs in the slave masters god, hoping to addict as many as you can, as the problems keep on mounting in our community.

          By the way, if I am caught in a place where there is a fire, the first thing I would do is call on you, so you can start praying for me, the second thing I would do is drop to my knees and start praying for me, the third thing I would do, is ask for the fire to reach you, so we can go together and pray forever, would you like that?  If you add that up the answer is three and three strikes, you are out.

          • Leta

            You have a very brilliant mind I would pray for you and myself to and if the fire happened to reach me I will still be fine because God is a consuming fire!  Have peace and may the forces of math the perfect book be with you!

            This Idiot Leta has been doing the same thing to me, trying to get me on her religion team..I keep telling these idiots their god could not save his ass, what makes them think he can save theirs? Remember the big god left this Jesus person on the cross, and then had to pull his ass out the ground 1.5 to 2 days later if we go with the day ending at sunset and he was pulled out the ground on Sunday…These people don’t know math, because they keep repeating that lie about that three days in the ground, to blend with their concept of a trinity, and the numbers are not adding up…Lets keep slapping them in the face with truth..I keep telling them truth does not have to be validated by ignorance…

          • Queenofmeanest

            Shakka Zulu, this B.S. about Jesus being G’d’s son and he died for our sins is also taught in the following religions?

            Hinduism
            Buddhism
            Zoroastrianism

            etc. etc. etc?

            So Leta in her infinite naivete does not have a clue as to who or what she is worshiping?

        • Queenofmeanest

          Not only what you said Leta was childish but very stupid indeed.

      • Cmncents

        I was a member of E-Longs congregation several years ago, for a very short period, before he built his current whorehouse, (“New Birth”). I say very short period because it did not take me long to figure out the hustle. Anyone with any amount of functioning brain cells can and should easily see through the E-Long’s BS. His settlement with those young men clearly indicates that he is guilty as accused and that he does not want the details exposed and if you don,t beleive that, you truly are in the dark and can’t be helped.

         Yepme2, your comments are a mirror image of how I think of these God forsaken hustlers. Black people need to grow up mentally and realize that you do not have to go through these pimps to capture the ear of God and that you do not have to pay “tithe” your way to the promised land. You do not have to be a biblical PHD to understand where God is coming from. DO THE RIGHT THING IN ALL MATTERS!

        May God bless these young men and God Bless Black America!

  • Sassysista

    It is not just Bishop Long.  Pastors of these Mega Churches see themselves as gods and wealthy elitists.  I belong to a church in Nashville,TN.  It is a Mega church.  The pastor(JW Walker of Mt Zion) preachers the word, does his theatrics, stirs up the congregation’s emotions with moving music and song.  Then, they ask you for a special gift to pay off an indebted church building that you have no say in how it is run, who is hired to work there, nothing.  The message has always been:  give us your money and frankly, if the donation is not generous enough, you are a non entity.  He lives in the wealthy community of brentwood in a mansion in a gated community.  I remember shaking his hand briefly and was trying to tell him I enjoyed his message, he looked right past me to the next congregant as if to say, move on .  i will always remember his coldness.  He told us once, make sure if he is counseling us, we need to talk about the issue in 15 minutes, because there is little time to dawdle.  I cannot believe I even went back.  so many single black women flock there looking for validation, or pie in the sky reinforcement.  but at the end of the day, he drives his fleet of luxury vehicles back to his gated home and the members of mt zion, bless our misguided hearts, go back to our situations  to fend for ourselves.  OUr church does not have a track record for financially assisting its members in any substantial way.  in fact, before they help you, your tithing record is pulled.  IF you are not a faithful tither, you are referred to big brothers or some other organization.  So sad.

  • Leta

    Wrong! News flash!  She is committed to her husband and family so where ever yall are getting your information is flat out wrong.  I already know you must of got it from the Enquirer right.  Perpetrate off of another lie.  What continues to be so sad is that before finding out the truth you continue to put mess out there to keep the negativity going in our black world and truly and literally OUR BLACK WORLD NEEDS HELP BEING THAT WE ARE OUR OWN WORST ENEMIES!  THE WHITE MAN WAS AND CONTINUES TO BE AN EXCUSE FOR MANY OF OUR DOWNFALLS BUT UNTIL WE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR CHOICES WE WILL CONTINUE TO SELF DESTRUCT.  WE PERISH DUE TO THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!  HOW CAN WE ALL LEARN FROM THIS TRAGIC INCIDENT WITH THE CHURCH AND BEGIN TO HEAL OUR LAND?  THERE IS ONE THING THAT IS CERTAIN YOU WILL REAP WHAT YOU SOW WHETHER YOU ARE A SINNER OR A SAINT.  WE MAY NEVER KNOW THE DETAILS OF WHAT HAPPENED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS BUT KNOW THAT GOD DOES AND BECAUSE HE IS JUST AND MERCIFUL ALL PARTIES INVOLVED WILL GET THEIR JUST DUES VIA LIES OR TRUTH!

    • Melinda Kai

      This situation does not apply to the white man syndrome.  Until blacks as a nation learn to stop blaming others and take responsiblity for their actions, then we can unite and heal our land.  Eddie Long is is own enemy.  (Enemy-N-Me)  The enemy is within him.  Again Leta, this SAGA did not happen overnight.  This SAGA was intentionally cohersed, plotted and planned for years.  Eddie had many opportunities to bail out. ” Destruction does not come without a warning first”.  Pride and arogance is the fall of man.  Ask Satan he will tell you.  Your statement, “you will reap what you sow”, is true and exaxct.  That’s exactly why the seeds this corrupt preacher has planted has produced rotten fruit.  I agree with you concerning you statement, “all parties involved with get their just dues via lies or truth”.
      Remember this, we become co-dependent to the warped minds of the most dominate forces in our relationships.  Just like an alcoholic husband or wife who does not admit he is an alcoholic and continues his dysfunctional activites, inturns causes the whole household to become dysfunctional.  To say, Ms Long is commited to the nonsense is to say, she has learned to adjust to the dysfunction of the most dominate force…This man is sick.  Rather gossip of rumor, the entire household needs to be detoxed in order everyone to heal, including the church. 
      Eddie best beat is to humble himself, shake off the pride and surrender it all to GOD!

    If you settled out of court you are guilty! Eddie Long should be removed from his position
    as a pastor. What is wrong with folk? Growing up in a Baptist Church the ELDERS would have removed him from his post!!!! Creflo Dollar is NOT GOD and has no right to say that Eddie Long has a place in heaven. God is the judge of Mankind and on Judgment Day GOD will decide who goes to Hell and who goes to Paradise.  People need to open their eyes and stop acting like they are blind to what is going on. If you are  a married man with kids and sleeping with boys, then you are committing adultery and you are  a homosexual. NOW WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT THAT??? Were the people of LOT not destroyed for committing homosexual acts? Everybody should be held accountable for their actions. So Eddie Long settled out of man’s court. Money talks on earth. Trust me he has to answer to the Creator of the heavens and the earth.  I have nothing against gay people that is between them and GOD. Eddie Long needs to practice what he is preaching. I am certain that Lucifer and his helpers are cracking about this one. Let’s keep it real shall we?

    The ignorance and obsession with worshipping the devil
    in the black community is appalling.  Forgiveness of the
    exploitive, unconscionable, greedy, filthy and deceiving
    is in full force, but hatred of those who sacrifice and give
    genuine love versus exploitation of a foolish people is the
    norm.  The truth is a lie and a lie the truth. 

    Folks really need to take a look at who they are really
    worshipping — and it is not God.  It’s the devil. 

    Is this part of the masochism that blacks have cultivated
    an endless lust for as a result of 400+ years of slavery,
    or were the masses already evil and that is what has
    brought the masses of blacks globally down as the
    wretched of the Earth?

    Must be, or folks are just plain ole STUPID! 

    It is amazing to me that fools are still packing this
    trickster and all other major tricksters churches
    pretending to be worshipping God when in reality
    you’re worshipping the devil.  Whereas thos who
    are really trying to lead folks to GOD can barely
    keep the lights, the phone and a roof over their
    heads as they are held in contempt, cause satan
    is god, and God is violated, rebuked and dismissed.

    In other words, anything goes, that’s the new christianity.
    Satan is the most popular guy/girl in town.

    It blasphemous!

    Save all that god stuff..He’s gay and she should leave him..he apparently doesn’t like women he likes men..zstop comparing him to these biblical figures and new testemant stories that where written and published by two homosexuals (Shakespeare and King James) ..Black folk can be wrong too even clergyman..Our problem is we start to worship the man and not god, thats organized religion is farce..

    It is time to say, so long, it is time for me to disconnect, it is futile trying to relate to most of the posters on this site, including Dr. Boyce and his members of, “Just rhetoric”

    I participated in posting, expressing how I see things as we all do; I proposed sound reasoning of organizing and collaborating on ideas and strategy for progress.  The response was minute relative to progressive change.  Mathematically, I received two responses interested in communicating on developing a viable plan. 

    I have learned, most of the posters are addicted to the bible and have no intentions of straying from their perception of a concept, that should be challenged by any strong mind. I state a strong mind, that is what it takes to challenge hundreds of years of programming that holds the mind hostage to a life of restrictions suggested by the slave master.  If that reality is not recognized, then the purose of the bible is effective. 

    One will not rise above their thinking and to capitulate ownership of one’s mind to become a follower of mind abusers, is weakness.  As I see many posters displays their weakness as a badge of honor.  There is no honor in participating in genocidal efforts of your own people. Most posters are not sincerely interested in making changes in our community, they really want things to stay the same, so they have a topic to display their anger and frustration about things they are not willing to put forth an effort to change. 

    For me to keep posting on this site is a waste of my time and reflects a bit of stupidity on my part.  I ask one thing of the young minds.  Understand, your parents, friends and community will try to impose their thinking and beliefs on you, which they should do as a matter of their responsibility.  The justification for protecting your mind and making it stronger is to challenge anything, you hear or read.  You do not have to challenge them externally, question them internally.  No one knows what you are thinking until you respond externally. 

    Think about it, although their intentions may be good, their knowledge may be impaired.  They dispense only what they know and believe.  It is not a detriment to challenge all information regardless of whom or where it comes from, in fact it is an asset to development of your mind; the mind is the essence of life, your salvation,your tool of destiny; protect and develop your mind, it is yours, not your parents, friends relatives or community.  Your mind belongs to you, why capitulate your mind to someone else, they have a mind of their own.  Do the math, if you surrender control of your mind under the influence of someone else, they have two minds, you have none.  Embrace reality, it is insurance and assurance against BS; reality equalizes mind energy, beneficial to survival and progress.  Challenge what I have stated, no statements that affect your life should go unchallenged, ask why of everything.  Why, is a tool to chip away at BS and assist you in crossing the threshold of reality.

  • Shelbygteel

    The word of God states that all sins except the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit can be forgiven-Mathew 12:31.  Nevertheless as leaders within the “Body-of-Christ” during times of such difficulties, we are responsible for making the “difficult” decision of removing ourselves from active leading positions and for seeking restoration and healing for ourselves and the Body-of-Christ both within our Personal (Individual) Worship Center and for the Corporate Body-of-Christ .  Such a “time-out” is not necessarily an admission of guilt, but an admission of our faith, understanding, and love for Christ and his Body.  To make such a decision would give strong indications that a person has both the love and maturity for Christ and His Body.  A sabbatical (time-out) is a necessary/much needed  response to the needs of a congregation and the Body-of-Christ at large.  This demonic force and attack is not about Bishop Long, his accusers, his family, but it is about the destruction of the WORD of God in the earth realm.  This spirit has come to make the WORD OF GOD powerless.  It has come to cast doubt in the minds of the people and globally, may I add.  This is a devouring/destructive spirit, cancerous, epidemic and it travels underground like a mole.  This spirit has come to shift the Body-Of-Christ from POWER Mode to POWERLESS Mode.  PRAY saints of God for Bishop Long, his accusers, both his natural and church families and the Body-of-Christ.

    I am a child of the most high God like everybody else, I do not have a special platform, position or agenda that I am on here to promote.  It seems that there are a few people have had a word to say who are aquainted with the WORD od GOD.  Since I read so many of the posts I went to my rock, my refrence, my lamp of illumination the HOLY BIBLE. I ask that anyone who has an open mind to hear from the LORD go get your BIBLE and turn to the book of JUDE 1:3 – 19.  I have been taught that before studying GOD’s WORD sometimes you should pray that the Holy Spirit that lives inside of every believer will help you truly hear what the LORD has to say.  In all your getting, get understanding.

    Thank goodness Bernice King finally had the common sense to get out of this church.  It’s sad to read comments from those who say they are Christians and condoning Eddie Long’s actions.  WWJD—- What Would Jesus Do—————– Not this not pay any man but stand up for right he stood for right all the way to the CROSS!

    I feel sorry for these people who are apparently Brain Washed and using Scripture to Defend this Man. I feel sorry for his wife and family and pray for them.

    Many Mega Pastors Own these churches because they took out the initial DEEDS on these churches and never had them transferred to the Churche’s names.  Does this Apply to New Birth?  There’s nothing Christian about Owning The House Of God it belongs to the people.

    So many people looking for Prosperity because that’s what he and Creflo Dollar and other Teach and Jesus had not one good thing to say about Money, or Greed.  When Jesus says it’s harder for a Camel to get through the eye of a Needle than a Rich Man to get into Heaven, Believe Him.  So many don’t because they are chasing GREED in these churches. 

    All we can do is continue to Pray for these folk who sit under this kind of False Prophets, Paul said he Preached them in and the False Prophets came in after he left, then Paul would come back to the church and trun them around to God again.  Today is no different except we don’t have a Paul to come in and turn these folk back to Christ.

    who should be watching out for the intrests of the people?  It seems that people are losing sight of right vs wrong by mixing in the concept of forgiveness.  I can forgive you but I refuse to allow you to continue to abuse my pocket, my mind and my faith walk is how I see it.

    It seems that Long is headed to “greener pastures” in Denver I believe. I suppose he is looking for more unsuspecting young men and stupid, careless parents. Please don”t become one of these. Protect your children whatever you do! He has done irreparable damage to these four young men already and I am sure there are others suffering in secret out there. Please know that this is not your fault and ask God to heal you and make you whole and He will if you trust Him….

    Another millionair pimp who exploits black people.  If there is a god, which I strongly doubt, that god would not welcome this scumbag.  It’s amazing how people feel the need to follow anyone but themselves.

    As soon you people realize that there is no god and that you are responsible for your lives and destines, these types of criminals will cease to exist.

    Nobody knows you when you’re down and out.  I’m sure this affair has been a real ordeal for her in ways only she can speak to.  I guess one can only toss around these blank check forgivenesses for so long.  Hopefully she’s reached a point where she’s able to separate the money from the word.  After all that 20 million plus settlement should have opened her eyes which had to have been closed or at least looking the other way for a long time.

    I could care less about the so called “Bishop” Long.  He needs to get straight with GOD.  Everyone seems to be so willing to “forgive” him but NO one is talking about the damage it must have caused for these young men, “OUR children!!!   I will always stand by them and support them.  Long is at the very least a sexually deviant man  and liar.   I listened to these young men and I believed them – then I listened to the bishop and I had NO doubt abt his guilt.   As Christians, our obligation is to Protect our sons & daughters.  Those of you who continue to stand beside this man’s lies ought to be ashamed!!!!    GOD bless the bishop’s wife, she must be devastated .                 .  .

    She should let Eddie listen to that 45 her dayy gave her. Introduce him the same 45 that Marvin Gaye’s father let him listen too.

    She should wait until Eddie is in bed and serve him some Al Green style hot grits.
