Last Sunday a woman walked up to embattled preacher Bishop Eddie Long during his sermon and handed him a stack of a thousand one dollar bills. Long seemed surprised as he hugged "baby girl" and said: "I see EVERYBODY moving like that!"

But according to Rhymeswithsnitch's Daily Long Report, the Bishop's own congregation seem to think the woman's generous gesture was a hoax.

Her approach seemed timed to coincide with him saying, "What I NEED..."

They say the unlikely act of generosity was staged to nudge other members into opening their wallets and donating $1,000 or more for a proposed expansion of the church to other cities.

New Birth Missionary Baptist Church has seen a staggering decline in attendance since the news of his multimillion dollar settlement with former church members who claim they were coerced into providing Long with sexual favors.

In a screenshot taken from the video, the church pews near the back appear empty -- as do the church's upper tiers. Last Sunday, attendance at the church was at less than ½ capacity.

At this rate, New Birth will be forced to shut its doors in 6 months if attendance doesn't pick back up. Long needs a huge infusion of cash to replace the millions that he paid out to his accusers.

    If we can just rewind and address our concerns with Eddie Longtroke's front lace taupee we may be able to better understand the man. Anyone capable of putting that Wal-Mart rug on their head is capable of anything #justsaying!

    OH and these congregation members? Where do I begin? :pray:

    What would have been truly wonderful is if he would have in return gave that money to the congregation... "Make it Rain" style! LOL.. but seriously, even Stevie Wonder could see that was STAGED!!

    I peeped ol' girl's body language and noticed the way that she kept holding her head down (as if in shame). Not only was her head down, but her shoulders were slumped as well.

    Now tell me.. WHAT person do you know who is so BOLD to stroll up to a preacher WHILE he's preaching and donates money or a gift of any kind without standing proud? I don't mean proud as in "boastful", but proud as in "I'm not ashamed to plant this 'seed' of Faith"..

    Also, I don't know how many people are familiar with spiritual people who are led by the spirit of God.. but most are shouting and rejoicing at the anticipation of the Lord's blessing or giving praise for what the Lord has already done in their lives. ..Again, this lady just STROLLED right to her seat without much of a hand wave!

    Something else that stood out to me was how OUT OF ORDER it was when she strolled up there to give him the money. And most times when church folks plant "seeds" of blessings, the money is placed on the alter/podium or the offering plate (which is close by) and NOT DIRECTLY IN THE PREACHER'S HANDS!!

    I'm sorry, but I don't see GOD in any of what just took place. SMH

    When I was young, a popular pastor at my church was having an affair with a married women right across the street from the church. When everyone found out, the older folks voted him out and a lot of people left. Since then I never put a thing pass pastors. Anyway on twitter someone twit pic a picture of Eddie picking up some boys in his Maybach dated June 10, it isn't a close of pic but she was positive in was him.

    I just don't understand why he didn't have sex with young naive girls like any normal guy with power,money, and influence would have done :shrug:

    I remember when I visited his church a few years back, it was hell bad bishes in that mofo. And you tellin me you'd rather have some boys, than them broads??? He deserves everything bad that happens to him and his church! You aint Ordinary Eddie Long.... You aint Ordinary bruh. :no:

    Everything you do in the dark shall come to the light!!

    Now, am I saying having sex with young girls (18+ of course) is right? Not at all! But is it normal?..... YES.
    If I was a pastor of a mega church (25,000 members+) I would be using my power to bust down all them broads. 90% of Black Pastors do it anyway :coffee:

    Let's be real... If Eddie Long was accused of having sex with some young females, his church would not be empty as we speak!

    Does anyone know for certain what the Settlement was though? I've heard reports of $25 million. Earlier I heard on Micheal Baisden that it was $50. Both numbers sound ridicuous to me. New Birth is a big church, but they aint got gwop like that :coffee:

  • gracenmercy

    i was just telling my mother this is part of the reason why i do not attend churches anymore and we got into a heated debate because my grandmother raised me as well as my mother in a really strict christian upbringing, i have a uncle who is a bishop and we were raised to treat him like the next best thing to God and I always had a problem with that, i always saw grown men in the church with all these womanly ways and I don't care about a persons sexual orientation what i do have a opinion about is portraying urself to be someone ur not. i'll stick to my personal walk with my God and give my 10% to a charity that is actually making a difference in this world n not someone buying children for sex, cuz if they think he not doin it still they stupid as hell, weak minded ppl need someone to follow, God is not enough because although they claim He is all they need, they cannot see or touch Him and so they treat these "pastors" godly like because they are not comfortable in their personal walks with Christ

  • ohpretty1

    @ lblondon - I see this man in his Maybach often with his former (some) drug dealer friends often so I doubt your friend is lying. Reality is, he's another 'hood star.'

    Ok, I just read on another news source that the stated settlement was only $8 million.

    I don't think anyone knows the actual settlement.

  • yvonne79

  • Alana

    That was the most staged thing I have seen in a long time. She gave him the money and then walked the wrong way, then went back up to hug him. Why didn't she just wait and give that money during offering? Why not go and turn it into a money order or check? Anybody in that congregation who stayed after finding out he was feeling up the young male flock should be out of there after seeing this. He should be so ashamed of himself.

    This pimp and his flock should all be pimp slapped. C'mon now!! If this doesn't look like a set up I don't know what does. And "baby girl" trotted back to her seat like she just dropped ten stacks on him. Damn dummies!!! And the music!!! WTF is up with the music? As soon as she puts them damn dollar bills in his hand the music is cued. That's probably his own money. Money he used to make it rain over at Magic City where her shady ass works. Oh. I'm sorry! He likes little boys so I guess he wouldn't be at MC unless they had boys night. And somebody should put an extra bitch slap for him wearing a damn lacefront that starts in the middle of his head! #sodisgustedwiththiscoon

    What in the world could he preach and say to me... Yes we ALL have falling short of the glory of God, but when you are professing to be a man in position (A man of God/Preacher) You need to Practice what you Preach and Lead by example... I believe that he should be forgiven as we all should, but it's time for him to step down out of that pulpit and be ministered to now and leave ministering alone... IJS!!! :coffee:

    Good morning my SR Family!!! :hi:

  • Nika405

    My son's grandmother attends a church where you get to hug the pastor if you give a love offering of $500+ during offering. Anything less than that you just put it in the collection plate with all the other nobodies.

    I left a small church because of ratchness with the Pastor and his children so it's just not mega churches doing the fool.

  • RubenT

    That lady in the Orange shirt looking like, "WTF". "Jesus paid it all, but I aint paying $hit".

  • Supa_sexy

    Nobody should be surprised because he is trying to save face and if he can get a few to show that they are down then others will follow because they are blind as hell and following someone who needs a true leader themselves!
    I’m just shocked that he is still preaching the word after this scandal that you and I both know is true. Because if you’re not guilty, you don’t pay anything, you ride that car until the wheels fall off. And if you are not guilty you don’t dance around telling the truth, you claim your innocent, you don’t try to sweep it under the rug. All I gotta say is God don’t like ugly and false preachers/spiritualist and he will have to be judged by the man above and God will dig in that butt and not the way he would like it. :hahaha:

  • Lady_L

    I mean where do all these church folks think he got the money to pay those men off.. don't they realize it was their tithings and offerings that is paying these men off?? are his members that blind??
