Bishop Eddie Long

Bishop Eddie Long has lost his battle with cancer, a New Birth Baptist Church spokesperson confirmed in a statement on Sunday. He was 63.

The church released a statement on Sunday, saying Mr. Long waged a "gallant private fight with an aggressive form of cancer.".

The controversial preacher was the subject of many rampant rumors in his final months. He reportedly suffered from an aggressive form of duodenal adenocarcinoma (cancer of the small intestine), according to a church insider.

Duodenal adenocarcinoma is rare and deadly because it is often caught too late and spreads rapidly. The prognosis for this form of cancer is poor.

Since the tumor is located at the beginning of the small intestine, it sometimes blocks food from entering the intestine from the stomach.

Long is survived by his wife, Vanessa Long, his four children and three grandchildren.

Vanessa Long released a statement on Sunday, saying "I am confidant through my belief in God that my husband is now resting in a better place. Although, his transition leaves a void for those of us who loved him dearly, we can celebrate and be happy for him, knowing he’s at peace."

    I hate how the devil came in and wreaked havoc in this man's life. He really did teach the word and preached some great sermons. I hate how his legacy has been tarnished. May he find the peace in death he didn't have in life.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    How'd he die?

  • Realtalk

    And he stopped eating at Popeye's.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    People try not be disrespectful. Some of you think evil.

  • Realtalk

    I hope the victims of his sexual assaults can find peace and healing somehow.

  • Rahab

    Prayers for his long suffering wife. She honored God and her vows. The family and Church shouldn't suffer from the sin of man. We all fall short.

  • Michelle

    He was in hospice according to a close source I know, he probably could've lived longer if he didn't consume so many fruits and vegetables. Cancer thrives off and metabolizes/feeds on carbs and sugars. The low carb diet could've starved the cancer off a while. Steve jobs did the same dumb shyt. Fed his cancer its favorite foods (smoothie and veganism) poor Eddie long. Wish he knew cancers primary and only feeding source. Cancer can't survive or feed on ketones/protein. Oh well...

  • Peter Piper ATL

    RIP, Child Molester and Hypocrite. The only tragedy here is he didn't end up in jail before he was hauled off to hell.

    And, not that I know what he had or didn't have, people who are afflicted with AIDS or HIV have a greater chance of developing esophageal or gastric cancer.

  • Gina

    Because his medical condition isn't anyone else's business ..the only exception to this is his wife and or kids...Do you want the world to know about all of your medical history?

  • Just saying

    The flesh had a desire. He fell weak to it. He fell hard and a long way from the Anointing. He did however have it but once it's gone it's gone. Yet Gods grace is absolute! And I believe that he repented and is now in the preaence of the Lord. I also believe he wouls probably still be alive had he not succumbed to his flesh. May his family and congregation fins Shalom and a new leader whose heart is after Gods. I honestly don't know what he could have done after this fall however...

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I don't know what bible y'all reading but Eddie gonna pay for the nonsense he did while alive. He isn't in heaven either. No one goes to heaven when they die goodness again the bible doesn't say that. Dead people are asleep until it's time for them to be awoken again. Eddie wasn't a man of the most high. If he were he wouldn't have made his riches by corrupting the scriptures and molesting young men. Try reading the whole bible not just the parts that the pastor reads and makes up the meaning for. God isn't always forgiving nor is he a respector of persons.

  • violet_skyz

    Sounds like your convinced his cancer came from something else. If it did, why hide? Sandra, what's your opinion on this???????

  • ItsMeIvory

    KARMA...at its finest..not practicing what you preach and spewing trickery to the public as a so called prophet. No RIP here may he burn in Dante's Inferno. P.S. not believing the cancer bs either #AIDS hadn't his church done enough covering up for this chester?

  • digital_femme

    Unfortunately since he was a public figure who depended on money from the public, some members of the public get a little curious about these things. Human nature.

  • Annaunki

    My props to his wife.A black woman will stay with you even if you have 10 kids on her.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I don't understand why when the bible doesn't say that at all. They believe a lot of religious based nonsense. Which boggles my mind because the bible doesn't back up anything they partake in not even tithes.

  • Phuck_trump

    This makes me feel a little better, at least I get to rest before I'm judged. That whole part is a bit scary, because once you're sent to hell, that's it. Ain't no leaving, moving, nothing?. I always say I'll be just fine if god let me roam the earth as an invisible being foe the rest of eternity lmao. I don't wanna be judged, I already know what's gonna happen?. Doesn't it also mention something about 55,000 people being in the good book? I'm pretty sure I'm not part of that minuscule number.

  • Annaunki

    I know.

  • bella28498 .

    ding dong the wicked di ck is dead!

  • Phuck_trump

    That, to me, has to be the dumbest part of people's beliefs. God can't spend money. What if he wants us to give it to random strangers and homeless people, instead of the long-time worshipped and idolized pastors? What if putting too much faith and trust in pastors is a form of idolatry? So mannie mannie questions?

    I lost my dad as a young adult too. I can only imagine how hurt his kids must feel. I sincerely hope love and healing for them.

  • shun king

    You go to hell and pay for your sins once you have paid you get to go to heaven

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I questioned it. Thats how I figured the bible isn't full of shit. The people that read from it are. Why? Most of the garbage they spread isn't even in there. Honestly according to the bible Christians are sinners and pagans not holy people. They follow religion and traditions of men which the same book they claim to read from forbids. I know this is a touchy subject but I'm not going to lie just make others feel comfortable.

  • shun king

    Jesus died for their sins he took the pain so every christen goes to heaven that how they explained it to me

  • Bob Dilla

    His wife is the epitome of a long suffering wife. She Stayed with him through it all, despite him publicly humiliating her. Wow

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You don't have to have sex with him. Just take care of him in sickness and in health. You do have an obligation to obey the vows you made.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Church isn't a building though it's a group of people or a gathering. Tithes are food not money. Yes money was given to the church ( people) but the Israelites worshiped and sacrificed in temples. The church ( people) preached on the streets to the lost sheep. They didn't didn't stay indoors and hide from the public. Modern day church's are for profit and are nothing like the real church in scripture.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    We fall down, we get back up. No one is perfect, especially men. That's why god gave women discernment, strength and wisdom to be submissive and take care of these men when they fall.

  • Justlooknout

    I agree with you. I aint nevver saying rest in peace. I walked outta church this morning. No time fot that...

    Doubt AIDS got him... Between medical advancement and all his money, he would have been on his "Magic Johnson" tip and we wouldn't known a thing... However you felt about this man, AIDS and HIV are NOT judgments. If they were, no mother would have ever passed it to her unborn child, wives wouldn't get it from their cheating and downlow spouses, no one would have caught it from tainted blood transfusions, etc...Prayers for his family. For his wife's sake I hope it was Cancer.

    The post definitely doesn't say anything about AIDS. Everybody knew something was wrong with him and wet all assumed is was AIDS and not no healthy Eating like he tried to say to us. To hear that it was cancer makes a lot of clears up everything. It's the reason for the hair loss, and muscle and weight loss. A lot of peoplestuff physical appearance change when they're going through treatment, because it's some pretty strong meds.

  • Op2

    Having an opinion is not judging. Quoting the scriptures is not judging. It is what it is. Judging is just another PC words trying to manipulate or silence people from expressing their thoughts. That is the same sick PC that backfired on liberals. -because folks learned to deceive and manipulate or tell the pollers one thing to avoid an argument, while secretly voting with their true voice and thoughts.

    The hypocrisy: I don't see the same people 'against judging' lining up at the courthouses and justice department boycotting the judges, jurors and lawyers claiming you have no right to judge...only God can judge.

    -in fact, those same people turn to judges to have their fellow opponent judged in lawsuits or a filing. The truth is everybody judges. However, not everyone lives a deceitful; hellish life that creates secret messes that harms others. Not everyone ignores the real victim (young boys groomed to one day be molested or raped), but mourn the predator. What a backwards way of thinking! Let us all pray that his victims someday find healing and peace. There is no difference btw him and the Sandust-kies of the world. ijs

  • Tlowe89

    Maybe his wife just stuck around to help him through his sickness. It's hard to be alone when you have cancer. Your going to need somebody's help, because Chemotherapy and Radiation with whipeople you physically out. It's mentally and emotionally better to have family help than some random hired stranger.

  • PrettyBrown28

    You better say that! ?????? This is the main reason why I'm taking my time...because I have to honor the vows. I refuse to waste that honor on a bum.

  • Op2

    ...umm do you not recall the scripture where children end up paying for sins (bad behavior) of their parent(s). (generational curse). The child is a part of the mother...sharing blood and DNA which ties into scriptures. -too bad you are not a health science major or nurse, you would know that HIV eventually turns to AIDs a form of Blood-Cancer affecting different areas of the body, if not pneumonia complications.

    Is not AIDs a form of blood-cancer? "Lookup AIDs related Cancers." There is a list of them. -most HIV/AIDs patients can now save face by writing cause of death pneumonia or cancer. Because in the end, the immune system is so deficient in white blood cells that it can no longer fight off viruses and other diseases in the bottom which allows cancers, colds/pneumonia and other bacteria to run amuck and thrive.

  • PrettyBrown28

    Yep. I don't understand why people can't grasp that.

  • PrettyBrown28

    That scripture does not apply here.

  • Op2

    You will never see that word in the US as a cause of death anymore. People can now hide behind the word pneumonia or some type of cancer knowing that AIDs which is a Blood-Cancer affect different areas of the body. -it helps the patient and family to simply focus on cancer caused by the real culprit. However, some doctors and nurses along the way KNOW THE REAL TRUTH. ijs

  • That’s Interesting

    RIP. Like it or not, God is the only and final judge of men.

  • Op2

    You need to stop! -submissive does not mean to allow yourself to be abused, disrespected and a man's doormat nor does it mean partaking in covering up dirt, especially when it comes to defiling the church with sin and deceiving and brainwashing the people (sheep). It means to be an equal partner who is respected in a relationship but allowing and trusting the man who has himself together to lead as head of household with decision-making in doing what is best overall for the family and his wife.

    That ties into Jesus saying Husbands love your wife as I do the Church (as Jesus loved the church). Children obey your father (parents), but a few lines down it is followed by Father respect or do not provoke and anger your child expecting them to not react or disobey. -if all things are in line with the teachings of the Scriptures, then there is no reason for a woman to not support and allow her husband to lead.

    No uneducated; financially irresponsible man lead me nor can a cheater because he would be out the door. No need for a woman to be disrespect and play doormat only to subject herself to a no longer sacred, but defiled bed and marriage that put her at risk of catching an STD/HIV, etc.

    -The Holy God is a Conservative one with rules and guidelines for us to follow. So easy Sandra to just throw out a phrase "submissive" without proper context of the word.

  • Op2

    Whatever happened to go you and sin no more (or at least not repeat those types of sins) when asking for forgiveness. Falling down and getting back up again only to become more sneaky and deceitful on the DL is not asking really meaning that you are sorry and wanting forgiveness.

    -Do not be deceived, for God is not mocked. Then Galatians 5 where he talks about the list of people sinning who will not inherit his Kingdom of Heaven. People are only fooling themselves because at death, that is not their Day of Judgment. That day for all (dead or alive spirits) is yet to come, according to the Scriptures. ijs

  • Op2

    The same reason that one of world's largest religion hid and continue to hide their secrets of leaders engaging in rape/molestation of children while hiding behind dresses, I mean robes. The devil and minions (spirits) attend churches too because the gate-keepers no longer have standards and allow just about anybody in for the sake of raising $$$. So much for a church being a sacred house of a Holy God. It is anything but!

    -the Bible tells us who is the 'author' of all lies, deceit, manipulation and causes chaos (wars and in-fighting). That tells us a lot about the church goers claiming one thing, but their behavior and action says another or contradict them and reveal who or what they really are. THAT is what's really going on.

    Minions covering up devilish behavior; manipulating and covering up truths (secrets).

    Lots of truth in that right there... But I know for a fact that lots of church folks and pastors here in Atlanta did denounce him. And a good 80% of his members walked away from his church.
    Still, it was sad to see so many people sticking up for him and calling his accusers liars. Shame on all of them.

  • Ni Ni

    Welp...i believe we all have to pay for whatever we do in this life in the afterlife regardless of repentance. Some texts reads that there are levels of punishment/rewards according to the life you lived on earth. Some reads (as poster mentioned earlier) that you can work yourself out after time (not earthly time) but do we want to chance it?

    The Bible clearly states that a man should not commit adultery against his wife. It is the only time a concession is made for a couple to divorce. It doesn't state anything about being "submissive" when your husband is breaking his vows to you.

  • Hmmm~?

    It could very well have been cancer, but we all know he was running up in those boys without protection. If he did have HIV, he likely wasn't having it treated due to word of it possibly getting out. Watch them never release an official cause of death. That's why you shouldn't do sneaky, nasty underhanded shyt. My condolences to his wife for having to deal with his bufoonery for so long.

    these very rare form of cancers are usually suffered by men with full blown AIDS and even HIV. Intestinal cancers can definitely cause rapid weight loss. Well see how it turns out but if it's AIDS well never find out and his wife will make sure of that

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Someone wasn't paying attention in bible class.

    Ephesians 5:22: "Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord."

    1 Peter 3:1: "Wives, in the same way, submit yourselves to your husbands, so that even if they refuse to believe the word, they will be won over without words by the behavior of their wives"

    "Submission is the duty of wives. But it is submission, not to a severe lord or stern tyrant, but to her own husband, who is engaged to affectionate duty."

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I've been paying attention. Thank you.

    Matthew 5:31

    "It was said, 'WHOEVER SENDS HIS WIFE AWAY, LET HIM GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE'

    Matthew 5:32 KJV

    But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

    Hebrews 13:4

    Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge.

  • Hmmm~?

    Except he was messing with nearly a dozen different people. If he had cancer, he would've just came out and said it. He didn't want to lie about it because he knew his time was approaching. Regardless of what it was, I have no sympathy for false prophets.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Submission should never be confused with weakness. The strongest women I know are submissive to their husbands. Men are going to cheat regardless of what the bible says.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    The first 2 sentences I agree with. The last one...NOPE

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I didn't state anything about submission being synonymous with weakness.

    And your response re: men cheating regardless of what the Bible says is also irrelevant. If they cheat, they will be dealt with by God and their wives can remove themselves from that marriage through divorce. That's the moral of the story.

  • Aly

    I don't know if I should feel sorry for them or be disgusted. They'll be in for a shock when they come to find out it'll be YEARS before they see a dime IF they see a dime at all. It can take up to a whole year from time of exposure to test positive. Then it takes an average of 2-5 years to get approved for SSI or SSDI if you get approved at all. You have to be damn near death's door to get approved on the basis of HIV. If the virus is so well maintained its "undetectable" and you are otherwise healthy, you will not get it.

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    So I didn't really follow the story when it came out. Just went and read. I'm trying to figure out why people keep calling him a molester if he never admitted to the allegations and there was never any proof. Is there something I'm missing? Is it because the church settled with the young men?

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I think he died of AIDS because when my cousin had cancer it took a whole year before he died off. Eddie long died quick. I simple think it is more than just cancer. I believe he had AIDS.

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    We all have sinned and fallen short of His glory. I'm sure there will be more things to surface now that he's transitioned. I'm just praying for whomever is affected by this death comfort, forgiveness, and that his family finds tremendous strength in the midst of the storm.

  • Op2

    Edited and removed upon research vs recalling what is now just an over-reached sermon from back in the day.

    -however, it is true that children will often inherit the gene for an illness or disease from one or both of the parents. Hence, some babies infected with a STD of the mother while passing through the birth canal instead being delivered via C-Section.

  • Phuck_trump

    Yes, living the way god wants you to is hard??. You got some willpower though, a decade? ?? just the though of death brings me to tears lol. We gotta endure the tests of man while at the same time making sure not to piss God off, which seems pretty hard? I also don't like the fact that there's no running from that. Once god sends you to hell, you're done?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Ephesians 5:22: "There will be times when a woman needs to submit, and her husband does not deserve it from a human perspective. But by divine right, God set the man as leader and a woman can trust that God is good. She can also know that nothing escapes God’s notice, and a wicked man will be held accountable for his actions."

    This means a wife must submit whether her husband cheats or not.

  • CaliGONECRAZY

    See you missing the whole meaning of the scripture. In God's eyes they will not inherit the sins of their parents. They are forgiven. And the example you are using does not pertain to scripture. The child can not be blamed for his mother giving them an std. Are you crazy? That Child is free of sin just entering the world. Your logic makes no sense.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Yes, there's a lot you're missing. You can find them in archives. I'm sure there will be a refresher course and more things will fall now that he has passed. One of the young men decided against the settlement and told his story. There were quite a few boys and families who had things to say. It didn't just start with the ones who settled.

    His wife was all but out the door. I believe the church had a gathering of minds and convinced her to stay to show her support of him so that the church wouldn't fold.

    Hopefully there was some coming to Jesus moments for all affected.

  • Op2

    Sandra you can't be serious. -A large number of women in other countries are forced and arranged marriage or be hung; shunned, mutilated, burned with acid or worse stoned and killed.

    A research documentary was done which reveal that they are not taking pride or having no choice with fear of being shunned and stoned to death. Others are burned alive or have acid thrown at them. -let alone allow their men to take in multiple wife to avoid being called a cheater. Besides a number of women in those other cultures are not followers of the religious book with scriptures that we adhere to. Their book calls for removing their heads and limbs; hanging and stoning to death.

    On the other hand, you have women in the more civilized world who are not doormats and treated 1st class and with decency and respect on every level of a marriage. -those are 'good men' that 'good God-fearing women' do not mind trusting to take the lead or make family decisions because they know they are in good hands.

    However, not all, but a number of young men have grown to become mentally defective and highly dysfunctional, especially those from fatherless/broken homes with no examples for real manhood coming from strong men in their family or environment. -those types do not deserve such privilege.

    What's missing: Those men haven't learned how to build integrity, trust and respect, so that it will be given in return. Only a foolish woman would allow some addict and distrustful man to rule over her. smh

  • Op2

    Yep, shame on them. -this only speaks volume about them (who they are and what they really stand for behind that suit & tie or church-lady hat). Devilish folks stick up and cover for each other. ijs

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    That's how you interpret it. If and when you marry a MAN, then I hope you submit to him, even when he cheats on you, beats you to a pulp, infects you with STDs, doesn't provide for you, etc.

    Hey Vanna!

    Not this story, but in general, I think it does matter for those who have been affected by abuse.

    I haven't read the comments you're speaking on, but I don't think because one has died that absolves all they have done to others only because people who never went through what victims have gone through say, "Don't speak ill of the dead". That's almost negating everything they feel or have suffered so that the abusers family aren't hurting. All the children who say they have been abused by clergy aren't forgetting because their alleged abuser has a family.

    I understand what you're saying. I just think there is a flip side.

    I just wanted to address HIV eventually turning into AIDS. Not all cases progress to AIDS. There are carriers and people who have been exposed, yet have never contracted the virus or are undetectable. In addition, there are those who are positive and have been for many years, even decades, and are still positive because their load has never fallen and they have not had any secondary illnesses.

    That's ridiculous. That is not in the Bible -- that is more bullsh!t Eddie Long said. But sexually molesting vulnerable young men and destroying their lives is most assuredly a sin. On this we can agree.

    This is true. Long was versatile, but mostly a "legs-in-the-air" bottom getting banged raw by street trade. He got HIV which, left untreated, became AIDS.

  • shun king

    Man i can tell you some stories you wouldn't belive the older sister say she tell guys and they still refuse to wear a condom

  • Evillene

    He could NOT get treated for AIDS. Somebody somewhere would have said something. AIDS meds are govt regulated, you can't get prescription without a paper trail. His treatment for AIDS and use of AIDS meds could have been discoverable in litigation. How do you explain contracting HIV when you claim you haven't engaged in adultery (or homosexual contact)?

  • Aly

    I wouldn't put it pass him to have had AIDS, nor the church lying about it... My point was Cancer can look just like AIDS in the end. And although I was no fan of his, if he was infected, I do not believe it was judgment of his sin. Maybe a result of his sin, but not a VERDICT. People write AIDS off as a plague sent to destroy the unholy. But baby, but for HIS grace there goes us all...people with AIDS aren't all iv druggies, gay/downlow, or promiscuous. They are simply sick.

    He preyed upon young boys and used God's money in an attempt to keep them silent.

    He invited a scam artist into the Lord's house and the guy absconded with over $1 million dollars of his members' money yet he didn't have the humility or the decency to step down from the pulpit and fully repent.

    But you're probably one of his cult I mean church members.

    In the words of Dick Gregory........you can get by with that with the church but you can't get by with that with the Universe that made the Sun, the stars and the moon.

    Don't know where people get that sin is sin and no one sin is worse than the other. God calls homosexuality an abomination. I think bestiality too, and the word says a liar shall not tarry in his sight and that there is no forgiveness for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Even in our laws which came from the 10 commandments and the code of Hammurrabi, not all crimes carry the same sentence. IF you are a Christian IJS!

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    That was a stupid and ignorant response since you want to throw insults and address me directly when I said nothing to you. I go to church and I believe in God. I pray for everyone... even you sir. Regardless of whatever he did or did not do, he still had family and people who went to
    God church and or people who may have been affected directly or indirectly in life. THATS WHO I PRAY FOR! To say I'm in a cult is foolish. And it says a lot about you and your judgemental ass. For the record I live in MARYLAND AND IM FROM JERSEY. NOT ATLANTA. Now as kick rocks and chew glass.

    You sound real dumb. Certain cancers are more aggressive than others. Factors that may affect life expectancy of cancer patients are stage of cancer at time of diagnosis, age and general health at time of diagnosis, responsiveness to treatment, etc.

    Your cousin lived a year, some folks live several years and some people die within hours, days or months after diagnosis. There is no one size fits all with cancer patients.

  • whitty hutton

    An official cause of death was released...duodenal adenocarcinoma. And if he had AIDS, wouldn't that have gotten out as easily as him receiving treatment for AIDS? Do yall think before you post this shit?

    The real issue at hand is the homosexuality and pedophilia in the black community/church that no one wants to address. There are plenty of "pastors" out there molesting our children that the church folks turn a blind eye to.

    Eddie gone wrong was sexing those men when they were boys. Part of the hush money was to get the boys to say he only groomed them as teens and waited till they were 18 for sex. That was a lie. If one had acknowledged that he had sex with one before the age of consent he would have gone to jail and the church to hell early. Cause they're a going....

    If he was only interested in sex with grown men he would have shown no interest in them as boys. All gay men aren't into sex with boys. However gay pedophiles are into sex with boys and groom them for sex as boys while they're boys. He was taking them on trips from their early years. He even adopted a boy and there was some suspicion about his purpose that resulted in a divorce from his first wife. We haven't yet seen a man of age 25-60 come forward and claim to be a former lover because Eddie Long Gone was only interested in boys.

    Go to youtube. there's a video of pastors carrying Eddie Gone Get it in a chariot after crowing him a king using Catholic and Jewish rituals. This was their way of brainwashing the congregation into believing he is anointed of God to keep getting their money, after the scandal.

    That depends on the age and version of the bible. Your interpretation of the bible based on modern understandings can be harmful. "Homosexual" includes men and women, but that is not an accurate translation of what the word in the bible's original text meant, nor what it was intended to portray. Homosexual is/was the closest English translation. The original word prohibited same-sex conduct between men, hence the specific and adamant references to males in the bible. There were powerful men who used young boys as "sex toys" and engaged in other sexual acts out of lust and devotion to false idols, which puts the beginning of Romans into perspective. People try their best to dance around it, but if the story of David and Jonathon doesn't scream homosexual, I don't know what does. Either way, I encourage you to 1.become familiar with the original language of the text so that you can read for yourself and not rely on man's translation, 2. Make your case using a word that shows up in every version of the bible in re homosexuality, 3. Recognize that Christ brought a new covenant - read what he says about commandments, and 4.Talk more about how God calls us to love and through Him all things are possible. We tell gay people to come to God and He will change them, but we beat them down and make them terrified of God before they ever get a chance to walk through the doors. Even if all sins aren't equal, it's on God to deal with the variances, not man.

    When pedophiles groom children it's because they're having sex with children. Grown men don't need to be groomed they live as they choose. If a man isn't interested in children he'd find their child essence and bodies unattractive and there would be no grooming because there'd be no interest in them. Pedo's don't groom children to have sex later. The arousal of interest - the attention given to them while they are children is because there's a sexual desire for their physical beings as it is in its childhood status.

    I was an officer of the court for years working with super intensive supervisor sex offenders. That was my caseload. Grown people who look at children and say when you grow up I'm gonna have sex with you are desiring the CHILD at that moment, the waiting is to be PC correct. Most act on their desires.

    1. Which Hebrew word(s) describes this abominable act?

    2. Majority of the translations out in circulation consists of numerous errors. Including adding and taking away words, names and titles. Some translations remove verses and chapters.

    3. The Messiah NEVER brought a new covenant. This is the biggest misunderstanding in the Christianity religion. The Book of Hebrews covers this. It's a renewed covenant.

    We as Christians are commanded to judge what is right and wrong according to the word of God. There is a difference between judging from our "own" thoughts and judging my what is written. Most "Christians" don't understand that because they won't read the word for themselves and crooked pastors are NEVER going to teach you that "lest they be judged".

    If you do not "judge" – "right" from "wrong" – you are traveling a blazing "one-way" course to "perversion" and "degradation" that will eventually land you in a "lake of fire"! -Revelation 21:8

    You have no explanation for why the church has become a building and why tithes have become money do you? Even the so called slaves new the true meaning of the church. What you're saying isn't true. All your doing is repeating what you've been taught by your pastor THAT'S A CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE, NOT A BIBLICAL ONE! If you read the bible for yourself you'd see what your talking about is B.S The old law was never done away with. Christ came to for fill the law not do away with it. He was the last blood sacrifice that's it! The old testament was NEVER DONE AWAY WITH, EVER! Christ was sent un to the lost sheep of Israel not everybody. They're are two sets of Gentiles in the bible outsider's and Israelites that have gone a stray. The same thing with the Greeks, you got the gentile Greeks and the Greeks that are Jews often mistaken for Ethiopians aka black people. Read the bible for youself and stop repeating the nonsense you were taught. FYI the levites and the rest of the 12 tribes are still around. If you read the old testament including what was taken out you'd know that. We are still bound by the laws that are written in the old testament. This is something you and the other non bible reading new testament prosperity God loves everybody folks need to understand .

    John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
    John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments
    Can't get anymore self explanatory than this. All of the laws aka commandments are in the old testament. The most high isn't complicated , mankind is.

    Agreed.

    They are all predators. Black people must take it very seriously that predators are targeting children. Poor black people must be even more careful because predators target children whom are economically and socially disadvantaged.

    The predators cover their targeting as opportunity to escape poverty, bad homes, struggle, the ghetto reality. R. Kelly uses music and Eddie Long used church.

    The worst thing is that there are many parents who turn a blind eye and sell their children's innocence and soul for a payout from these predators.

    The parents of boys and the church knew full well what Eddie Long's intentions were when he had boys in his office and they still let his door be closed and locked.

    There are parents of girl children still today that would sign their underage daughters up to work with R. Kelly and would leave their child alone in a studio with him.

    Zondervan's Compact Bible Dictionary: Ham - The youngest son of Noah, born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; not the Negroes, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and Canaanites.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    The "new covenant " was established so the Israelites and their descendents could get back into the kingdom. They broke the first one , so the most high established another one to not only cover them but their descendents as well. The first one was established with moses in Egypt. With this new covenant you have to become the word and follow the laws. Have them written in your heart . Christ isn't the most high nor can he save you from gods wrath. We can't possibly follow all 613 or so laws since some involve the use of temples and sacrificing. But we can adhere to a lot of them like the dietary laws for example. There are also holy days in scripture were suppose to observe too, but holidays have replaced them unfortunately.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    My grandmother pulled that card with me too. You're right . YAH'S law does take precedence over the laws of the land.

    Good discussion. Me and mine were a package deal. You want him at a camp...you want me at the camp. Children's church my big head peeping every 10 to 15 min. Taught my son from early don't let nobody bring you no where to show you nothing. The world is complicit in the abuse of children.

    Eddie Long:
    Molested Kids
    Steal money from the less fortunate
    Made his congregation pay for homes/hotels for his rendezvous
    Stand at the pulpit and belittle the LGBT community, while enjoying some nut as well. abusive relationships at that..
    Lied every Sunday to his congregation
    Used the congregation tithes to pay off- the kids he molested.
    ATM in his Church
    Made members of his church apply for a loan if they needed help. All loans was paid back with interest (I heard) and in a timely manner or garnishments.
    Lied to his church about God healing him.
    Damage control "Raw Vegan Diet"
    Taylor made suits, luxury cars, jets, watch.. lifestyle.... while his congregation is at home wondering, if the tithes they pledge will pay this past due light bill or put food on the table.....

    and I can go on and on............ I am NUMB to this here. My God is a jealous God....

    Not just for boys. I was a victim of sexual abuse from the age of 7 till 18 from Deacon of the church, uncle and sexual immoral predator all in one. And only a few months ago did I speak out. They never confess by the way. And the wives side with the husbands. They just as guilty..

    I know. As with any response, it is wise to not be all over the place trying to make a point. Since the article is talking about E-long, and not the church, I focused on writing that which supports that. -throwing in deacons, ushers and everyone else (kitchen-sinking with pots & pans) only causes the reader to lose focus to the point being made and makes the response less effective. ;)

    On the other hand, I am sorry that you had to experience such evil. If I were you, I would file a police report to investigate with hope of the truth coming out via a juror and sue for possible damages (since he was a part of the church). -only one way for true peace and forgiveness is to confront the perpetrator(s) and hold them accountable.

    I think the most dignified thing his wife can do is have a private family funeral and cremate him. A big public funeral is disrespectful to the youth he r@ped and the congregation he financially abused.

    Omg that is so vile. What a vile man then to play pastor. Sick.

    You have free will like you said in your passive aggressive comment in the other post. You don't want to learn anything , if you did you'd seek knowledge for youself. You can believe whatever you want, but don't lie about what's written. Move around my font I don't have time for crosses like yourself.

    You can file a sexual harassment suit/claim against those managers even if you aren't the intended target. If you're offended and affected you too are a victim and have protected rights. Talk to HR if you can't trust them contact a lawyer.

    That church. Then there's the church on Youtube where the Pastor consecrates the men into ministry by humping there behinds. The men lay on the floor, a sheet is placed on top of them and the pastor lays on top and humps them. On one man he appeared to have a "release". Not one person got up and left when this occurred. I couldn't believe it.

    Knowthyself73 - this is where studying the Word and reproofing it for yourself comes in because if you are weak in the Word you may not be able to grasp what I'm about to share with you. In a figurative way the answer is yes but it is not karma from the child's sins but the sins of the parent.

    Exodus 20:5 “You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me.”

    What God is saying is that if a father misleads his family, the family will pay for it. Each will have to pay for their own sins but the father could have prevented many of the sins that his children and grandchildren would fall into had he led his family in obedience to the Law of God.

    In simpler terms it is like a mother that drinks for the 9 months of her pregnancy and then has a baby with defects. The baby is suffering for the sins of the mother not due to any sins he/she has committed themselves.

    So sometimes our sins will cause others who are innocent to suffer.

    And you my friend are weak in the Word.

    Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

  • monique

    I still can't believe people were still attending his church services. The church condemns the homosexual lifestyle but the congregation continued to attend, pay tithes, support a man that was sexually active with boys, lived a secret homosexual lifestyle, lied, comitted adultery and God knows what else. And he died of cancer, really, they are still lying. Good lord!

  • Evillene

    I'm with you. AIDS is not a judgment. It is an illness just like cancer. I have compassion for decent people who suffer. But I am not perfect, so I am still working on learning to have compassion for wicked people. For Long, AIDS wasn't judgment for him taking it up the @ss, it was his karma for being a lying, fraudulent, depraved SOB.

  • facingrealit1

    I don't care how long it may take to have a day in court but if I were innocent I'd NEVER pay 25million to silence my accuser. pssst - Michael was complicit in the crimes ledged against him as he was too damn old to be sleeping with other peoples children - whether he touched them or not the mere act made him complicit to the charge.

    By the way, I know someone with full-blown AIDS. Every month, he calls 911 claiming to be unable to walk, due to excruciating pain in feet. He does that so he can continue to receive an extra check to pay for a caregiver... a check he spends on coke and alcohol.

  • belizeanborn

    I am sure he is where he should be and he has to answer to the true God for all the wrong he has done, especially while he was pastor to those young men. God was not sleeping, look how fast he left this earth. He needed to atone for all the wrong he did.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I gave you enough info to where you can go do your own research. No you'd rather go back and fourth with me. Whatever. I'm not responding to you anymore I got better things to do.
    Hosea 4:6
    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

    Acts 7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.

    A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.

  • Jussjess25

    Quoting scriptures from the bible doesn't mean you can apply it to others, and condemn them. Thats Gods place not yours.

  • Knowthyself73

    facingrealit1, you are right about one thing: studying the word is important, but I think it's something you may want to take your own advice on.

    First of all, Exodus 20:5 is very specific about whose children he is referring to. He is specifically talking about the children of those who hate Him. It's not talking about just any ole sinner. Now surely you don't believe that every child with cancer has parents who hate God? That would be totally un-Biblical not to mention completely ridiculous. (How then would you explain the children of Christians who get cancer?)

    Secondly, there are numerous places in the Bible where God clearly states that each person is to be judged for THEIR OWN sin. Not the sin of their parents:

    Deuteronomy 24:16 - "Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers.”

    Ezekiel 18:20 - "The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself."

    Jeremiah 31:30 - "But everyone shall die for his own iniquity."

    And your example about the drinking pregnant woman is a very poor one. The baby's suffering is a direct result of the mother's actions, not because of a punishment from God.

  • Knowthyself73

    Several men in his family have also died of cancer at around the same age, including his brother who died of cancer several years ago. It runs in his family. I think people just want it to be AIDS because they think it would be a just punishment, and because it makes for a more salacious story.

  • B.Loveitt

    With full blown AIDS cancer may be what takes you out due to the immune system being shot, Cancer is actually a virus. So they are not lying about him having cancer...you just wanted to hear brought on by being HIV positive and eventually diagnosed with full blown AIDS. I live in Atlanta it was easy for him to settle out of court because they were at the age of consent all while living in the house he paid for and cars in his/church name. MY GOD ONE EVN HAD HIS NAME/initials tattooed on him, instead of that being in favor of the accuser it actually become in favor of Eddie Long. All this not being judgemental is something the church still teaches. This is a internal struggle for them...THEY TOO WERE TAUGHT THAT GAY IS WRONG, YOU MUST REPENT, ASK FOR FORGIVENESS. Which we can all see many aren't trying to live by that.

    They still supported him because they believed in the Bibles teachings. BEL and New Birth did many things for people who didn't belong to the church too. He paided off homes, paided for a 18mths of rent so single mothers/families wouldn't be homeless, got them jobs and paid for training and/or school/college, what the churches use to do and suppose too do! He even opened up a private school etc. At one point other districts were mad at him because they felt he was giving to schools who didn't need, mainly South West Dekalb. Wesley Chapel and Lithonia, GA is not poor by a long shot. Unlike "Please give me a dollar Creflo" whatever they bought, own you got tax information so you could do or claim whatever on your taxes. Creflo wanted you to turn in your W2's to see just how much you make, can you pay your tithes? So yes they forgave him or never believed it to begin with. Because the Bible told them so...even BEL had many sermons about this very thing. I'm just telling you what Atlanta knew and watched unfold before us.

    Cheers...

    Why would you say that? You don't think God forgives, and if that is the case I guess all of us will be going to hell. No one sin is greater than the other one. And just to keep it real, no one has transitioned anywhere until the second coming, so right now he is just a body in the ground.
