Frank Ski Bishop Eddie Long

Radio mogul Frank Ski is speaking out in defense of Bishop Eddie Long who died Sunday at age 63.

In an interview with AJC.com's Buzz blog, Ski said when he returned to V-103 last year, one of the first people to call him was longtime friend Bishop Eddie Long.

The 2 old friends met for breakfast at the Four Seasons Hotel. "He never told me he was sick," Ski remembers. "He just asked about me."

Ski, whose real name is Frank Rodriguez, didn't entertain rampant rumors about Mr. Long's illness in the months leading up to his death.

"He affected and motivated so many people," said Ski, 52. "His ability to be a great orator really helped people."

Mr. Long, who served as senior pastor at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church just outside Atlanta, was accused of molesting young boys in his church in 2010. He reached an out-of-court settlement with 4 of his accusers in 2010.

But the damage was already done. Half of New Birth's parishioners left the church amid the sex scandal. Former associate Pastor Bernice King, the youngest daughter of Martin Luther King Jr, cut ties with Mr. Long and the church after the scandal broke.

But Ski wasn't among those who abandoned Mr. Long.

While not defending the allegations of sexual misconduct with boys, Ski stood by his friend.

"Sometimes it's the closest people to you who turn on you," Ski said without naming names. "As a member of the church and accepting Bishop Eddie Long to be a spiritual leader, I have to spiritually remain in faith, which is the essential core of Christianity: Faith," he said in a Sept. 22, 2010 radio broadcast.

"As a friend as an extended family member, I am loyal. I believe in being a friend to someone not only when they’re up but also in times of trouble. I am a loyal friend."

On Sunday, Ski stressed again that he never defended Mr. Long's behavior.

"Obviously there were people hurt on both sides," he said. "My prayers have always gone out to the people who said they were victims. I wasn't defending him. I don't know what happened. I wasn't there. I know he helped a lot of people. When you're a friend of somebody you don't abandon them."

    I know the man was surrounded by scandal, however he did do some good things. GOD is the FINAL judge of us ALL.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Why is he defending him unless he was okay with the molestation and in on it too!

  • Buttercup

    He was such a great friend, but he didn't tell you he was sick. Bye Frank!

  • millz

    loyalty is rare these days... good for you frank ski

  • i troll it like i see it

    In my opinion the good doesn't even matter. it doesn't make up for the damage he has done to these young people who have to carry around the burden of being sexually abused for the rest of their lives. This is lifelong trauma we are taking about.

  • A-way29

    what good did he accomplish in his role as the "pastor" at new birth?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Sandra, did you really have to use that 'how you doing?' pic of the late rev right after he left his Hair Club for Men appointment?

    Frank Ski need to have several hot grease seats.Eddie Long altered the lives of many boys who will thirst unnaturally for other men,because of what devious closeted gay man did to them.

    speaking out in defense
    ______________________

    Why? If the man did nothing wrong, what is there to defend? I guess "silence is an answer" too, right?

  • A-way29

    It's definitely great to have friends/family that stick by you during tough times.

    With that said, what good did Eddie Long produced during his time as the "pastor" at new birth? Anyone?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Oh please.

    If he had stepped down after that scandal maybe he would still be alive today.

    Hell l know this clown of a former pastor who stayed in the pulpit even after his daughter accused him of molesting her.

    Folks don't have any respect for God.

    NONE!!!!!!!!!!

  • datATLboi

    That's most of our problems. We follow the MAN and not the MASTER (GOD) smh.....he was just a man but he brought many to the Lord. don't let a scandal tarnish everything this great black man has done that's good

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    ????

  • i troll it like i see it

    I don't believe they are going to "thirst unnaturally" but I do believe they will always be wondering why he did this to them and will probably be traumatized and distrustful of others, as they should be.

  • A-way29

    Do you people truly believe that he was called to preach the word and that he positively led people down the narrow path?

    I met a few "mega preachers" a few years ago and one can definitely sense that something is off about them.

  • A-way29

    He misled many away from the Most High. Not towards. Do not be deceived.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Thank u! He is gone now we all have to pray for everyone

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Yep

  • Renee26

    I'd abandon a friend who was accused of those things quick...where there's fire there's smoke and I refuse to waste loyalty on people who are unworthy. Messing with kids is a no no

  • Renee26

    Psychological damage due to sexual abuse (as well as others) goes deep...especially for males who were sexually abused by males. They go through life with a terrible secret and have people judge them based on their reactions to the abuse (gay bashing). They often struggle with relationship and mental issues as a result. The damage is VERY real

  • A-way29

    Not bitter. The Messiah told us how we'd recognize a false teacher. "You will know them by their fruits" he produced corrupted fruits sis. He was a blind leader.

  • KarmaBackAround

    he helped a lot of people BUT he hurt a lot of young men who were looking for help and guidance, not sex! So you cant say oh yea he helped people without putting forth that fact that he stole what could've been the innocence of those victims. .but anyway Pastor, carry on..

  • A-way29

    What does it mean to be saved?

    When?
    That's very sick.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    "His ability to be a great orator really helped people..." Say WHAT LOL?? It was his "oration" that got him in trouble to begin with. Let's recall that Ms. Eddie Mae Long, rest in peace, took particular delight in anilingus with boys, not "young men" as the press liked to call them. And for those girls who need that dictionary, let me save you some time, anilingus is the eating of ass.

    Eddie Mae was a hot ass mess and a child molester. And to cue you all on some intel, Long's cult oops I meant church had long been attended by influential people who went to the mat protecting Long, and doing everything they could to prevent a criminal inquiry.

    Some of New Birth's former and current congregants? Dekalb's sheriff, former D.A., Solicitor, two deputy attorneys general, 3 GBI agents, an FBI agent, a federal prosecutor, and half a dozen state and one federal judge. Also, a current member of Congress is a regular attendee there.

    That said, Long is a dirt bag. And so is Frank Ski's boring ass for having the temerity to take up for a pedophile.

  • Carrington

    What did I miss about his abuse of "boys"? People keep saying that Long was having sex with boys, and that's just not what I read. I read that these "boys" were 20+ year old MEN and not a single one of them said that they had been with him since they were underage. (I could be wrong, as I have been before)...
    Now, with that said, if you're a 24 year old man and another man is paying your rent and leased you a Range Rover SUV and you had to have sex with him when he wanted it, you weren't a sexually abused victim who, unwillingly, had sex with the man who paid for it all - you were his BOYFRIEND. In heterosexual: He was your sugar daddy.
    Quit trying to paint these dudes as abused boys. If you find out Jay Z had a gaggle of 22 year old b*tches that he was paying rent and car notes for in exchange for scattered a$$ - they would've be girls and he wouldn't be an "abuser" until he broke up with them and they called Gloria Allred.
    Call a thing a thing. The man may have been on the DL. He may have been a hypocrite. He may have even been disgusting to you... but he didn't abuse boys - he had sex with MEN in exchange for gifts.

  • Buttercup

    I'm pretty sure he abused them during their teenaged years. Let me see if I can confirm or deny.

    Advice 101

    "How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

    Which think to cause ?? eth-my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for BA'AL."

    Jeremiah 23:26-27

    Here, The Most High is speaking to His prophet. He mentions in verse 26 how our forefathers, at that time, forgot his name and replaced it for BA'AL

    This is the name of a demonic deity that the Canaanites worshiped. This word is a Hebrew word. The meaning of BA'Al is "L-O-R-D". Yes, you've read it correct. Ba'al means Lord.

    I'm not saying everyone who uses "lord" is referring to this deity. I'm shedding light on it's real meaning. Now you know. It will be wise to research it.

    Please understand that man has tampered with the scriptures by adding and taking away from what was written. This is why it's import to study the original language and not to take the KJV and other translations at face value.

    The Mosy High will guide you to this truth - only if you're sincere in finding it.

    With that said, please stop using the word "Lord"

    Proper word will be Adonai

    Wake Up

    The young boys are going to bring out a book title, "Foursaken". Sometimes I feel the parents of these boys didn't care. The fathers of course were garbage. This why a parent should be active in the kids life. When you are a parent you should never be lazy. The mothers are no better because they have not yet come forth. Lazy a** parents keep you out of tune with your kids.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Yes, you're wrong sweetie. I'm close to someone whose close to one of the four young men and I had heard about this a couple years before the public did because this particular accuser had actually been telling people about the abuse way before he went public.

    The sex started when these guys were 15 years old and up. Honey, in no place in America is a 15 year old boy a man. Eddie Long targeted and sought these boys out and he manipulated and enticed them into laying up with his greasy fat ass. That's not acceptable.

  • That’s Interesting

  • A-way29

    Adonai = means Master
    Ba'al = means Lord

    It's important to use a Lexicon/Concordance when reading scripture. Are you familiar with Strongs?

    "God" is a pagan word too. That's the name of a Babylonian deity. That's the deity of fortune. This what's on the back of our money. It's spelt GAD and pronounced GAWD. This pagan name replaced the true name of The Most High in the scriptures - "GOD"

    The Most High, Yahuah (His Name) addressed Israel worshiping this false deity in the scriptures. Please see below.

    11“But you are those who forsake ????, who forget My set-apart mountain, who prepare a table for Gad, and who fill a drink offering for Meni. Isaiah 65:11

    Meni is a deity of Fate and Fortune.

    everything is in the book.

    Imma say one last thing. Let's talk about these parents. How the hell do you let your child go off to foreign lands with some fat preacher with a Jheri curl? Eddie Mae Long was spending money on these boys baby. Clothes, cash, cars...these kids were living like they were on a never ending appearance on The Price Is Right.

    Now if a grown ass man is giving my child all this crap, I'm gonna find out why. And I'm not going for this fatherly figure mess because that's that pedophile bullshyt. Unless the parents were benefiting as well,. i.e., pimping their kids on the low, then how the hell does anybody explain why a parent or auntie or grandma or SOMEBODY didn't say, Whoa, something is the hell wrong with this situation?

  • Justlooknout

    He managed to die huh sis.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    That prepare a table for that troop.—Hebrew, “for the Gad,” probably the planet Jupiter, worshipped as the “greater fortune,” the giver of good luck. The LXX. renders “for the demon” or “Genius.” The name of Baal-Gad (Joshua 11:17; Joshua 12:17) indicates the early prevalence of the worship in Syria. Phœnician inscriptions have been found with the names Gad-Ashtoreth and Gad-Moloch. The “table” points to the lectisternium (or “feast”), which was a prominent feature in Assyrian and other forms of polytheism.

    Unto that number.- Here, again, we have in the proper name of a Syrian deity, probably of the planet Venus as the “lesser fortune.” Some scholars have found a name Manu in Babylonian inscriptions; and Manât, one of the three deities invoked by the Arabs in the time of Mahomet, is probably connected with Mëni the it (Cheyne). See Sayce, as in Note on Isaiah 65:4.

    Black pastors are having sex with boys. Its' need to be discussed and stop sweeping dust under the carpet. If your pastor is gay accept and move on, my son will not be groomed for that type of anointing.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    It does seem like abuse of boys happens way more often when they're being raised by a single mother. We see it happen so many times where the mother is happy & grateful to have some man come along as a mentor/father figure in her son's life, and she doesnt detect the grooming and abuse that's taking place right under her nose.
    I dont know if I'd always blame the mothers though. A lot of the time they have their hands so full trying to put food on the table that they might just not pick up on certain warning signs.

    I guess Eddie must have thrown some cash toward their mothers and they allowed Eddie to do what he wanted with their sons.

    The Catholic Church tried to cover, hide and defend their pedophiles to. In fact, they were sued big time because of it.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    He started sleeping with them when they were 16. Of course as they get older, he dumped them for younger boys in the youth choir. His supporters said he didn't nothing wrong because 16 is the age of consent. Most likely they were being groomed since preteen 12-13. He deemed them ripe to start sexing after the age of consent. Of course he was lavishing them with gifts. Read ALL of the boys report smh

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No it's worse. They actually sent those molesting priests to other churches which meant more children were exposed to those sickos all in the name of preserving the reputation of the Church oh and the cash flow.

    Yes, you are correct, but it was the "church" Rome. I'm talking about roundst the corner. Just because the choir director is talented, you excuse that and let your son hang out with him.

    Because tithing is an Old Testament concept. The tithe was a requirement of the Law in which the Israelites were to give 10 percent of the crops they grew and the livestock they raised to the tabernacle/temple (Leviticus 27:30; Numbers 18:26; Deuteronomy 14:24; 2 Chronicles 31:5).

    If we go by the old system of tithing and based it on when crops grew and livestock reproduced, it would be more of a quarterly thing and not weekly or monthly.

    respect. Thats the confusion of the christian doctrine.

    A few things, its not a new testament. It's a renewal. Also, we're still under the original (old) testament according to Galatians.

    It's known as the Law of Moses because Yah gave it to Moses and Moses relayed it to the people. It wasnt Moses law.

    Galatians explains when the renew covenant will take place. It will happen in the wilderness again - just like it happened when they left Egypt.

He also did a lot of damage by using his platform of power to prey on young boys in the church, who's lives he has changed for the worse.

    Crops and livestock WAS currency back then. That's why you were able to pay someone three mules and a goat for your daughter and not $2500 dollars. If you tithe ten percent of your crops, are you only required to do it once? Because if you aren't, would you run out of crops at some point?

    I hear where you're coming from. The Messiah didn't pay tax's with animals he paid with silver coins. See below

    Lucas (Luke) 20:9-22

    9And the chief priests and the scribes sought to lay hands on Him in the same hour, but they feared the people, for they knew that He had spoken this parable against them.
    20And keeping a close watch on Him, they sent spies who pretended to be righteous, to catch Him in a word, in order to deliver Him to the rule and to the authority of the governor.
    21So they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You are not partial to any, but teach the way of Elohim truly,
    22“Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”
    23But perceiving their craftiness, He said to them, “Why do you try Me?
    24“Show Me a silver piece. Whose likeness and inscription does it have?” And they answering, said, “Caesar’s.”
    25And He said to them, “Then give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to Elohim what is Elohim’s.”

    MatthiYahu 17:24-27

    24And when they came into Kephar Nah?um, those who received the tax came to K?pha and said, “Does your Teacher not pay the tax?”
    25He said, “Yea.” And when he came into the house, ????? spoke to him first, saying, “What do you think, Shim?on? From whom do the sovereigns of the earth take toll or tax, from their own sons or from the strangers?”
    26K?pha then said to Him, “From the strangers.” ????? said to him, “Then the sons are exempt.
    27“But, lest we cause them to stumble, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you shall find a piece of money. Take that and give it to them for Me and you.”

    Read the verses I provided. It breaks down how it should be done. It's all in the book. There's also an account where a group of people had too much of their tithes to bring to the storehouse in Jerusalem. It was too much for them to carry. So, they sold everything and when they reached Jerusalem, they purchased their tenth and provided their tithes. I'll def get back to you with chapter and verses.

  • Carrington

    Show me where that came out at ANY point after these MEN came out. I'm not supporting molesters and I followed this story. They spoke out before they got paid - I'm waiting on a receipt where any one of these men said he started molesting me when I was 15... I'll be here when you get back.

    I would assume it is everything therein because The Father created it all and abides in everything- the water, the trees, the animals, man. He loves all of this that he hath created. So much he sacrificed his son, perfect in every way to die in order to overcome sin so the world is not bounded by the sins of the flesh. Because without The son, the wages of sin is death. That is certain. Yet Yashaya has defeated Satan and through HIM our souls are free to eternal life if we love HIS LAW (not man's) and live for HIM (not ourselves).

    I understand what you mean. Do you use a concordance?

    let's look at a few things.

    1. the world, the universe
    2. the circle of the earth, the earth
    3. the inhabitants of the earth, men, the human family

    Isaiah 45:17
    17But Israel shall be saved in Yahuah with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded WORLD without end.

    In the above verse, Israel is being referred to as the world without end. This is important to note because the covenant is with Israel.

    Let's see what the Messiah said himself.

    MatthiYahu 15:24
    24And He answering, said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Yisra’?l.”

    The Messiah died for Israel. Of course read the entire verses, paragraphs, and chapters to gain the better understanding. When you line up the scriptures, you'll understand that Yah sent His son for Israel aka His World.

    NOT saying everyone else cant be saved as some unlearned folks teach. Saying that the promise and covenant is with Israel. And, if one wants to be saved they have to take on the covenant and follow the Torah as the Messiah did.

    the Torah was written in Hebrew. The "bible" and other versions are transliterated from the original language (Hebrew). With transliterations and translations, words and meanings are lost.

    bro/sis. The Torah is from the Most High, given to Moses from Yah himself. What they use is the Talmud which is filled with mysticism and their traditions. This was the beef the Messiah had with the Pharisees. The Torah is good, the Talmud is the doctrine of devils.

    I understand the connection between the Cushite and Hebrews. I understand the claim that the arc is in Ethiopia. I don't believe its in Ethiopia. The Cushites are from Ham, not Shem. Shem has the promise and not Ham. Don't forget the Qumran writtings..which im sure youre aware of.

    Yes, they stole it and the Messiah made it known in Revelations 2:9 & 3:9

    9“I know your works, and pressure, and poverty – yet you are rich – and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yehud?im and are not, but are a congregation of Satan.

    9“See, I am giving up those of the congregation of Satan, who say they are Yehud?im and are not, but lie. See, I am making them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.

    Omg. I'm from Chicago and I have always wanted to know something. Is V103 a national station? Is it 102.7 across the country or just in Chicago?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Honest question

    Does friendship and loyalty maintains only when it someone else's child or does it die when it's YOUR OWN child?

    For those who say that's what friends do, do you remain steadfast and loyal when it's your child? Where is the loyalty for your child? What if it's a loyal friend's child?

    And if your friends are true, do they not correct you and hold you accountable (even amongst yourselves)?

    These are just questions that came up in discussions on this end.

  • TheWildChild

    Didn't Eddie no-longer Long weirdly adopt a very young male child immediately after his first wife's divorce? not during their marriage, he did it following divorce. I see he has a son, of his namesake, who's a wannabe rapper all on the the Gram attention whoring. ? Now this FrankSki looks and always looked like a member of the choir. ????

    I doubt it. As far as I know, it's one of the few local R&B/Hip Hop radio stations left here (Atlanta).

  • kekeb

    Honestly, I agree with you. He should have addressed the allegations head on by denying them verbatim instead of saying he wasn't the monster the media was making him out to be. Either way, he's deceased now, so wherever he is, he's not worried about it

  • Strong.Yardwoman

    Black pastors are having sex with young girls too. About two or 3 years ago I had to stop attending a church in Clarkson because it was so obvious the pastor was not just lusting after the young girls, but was actively trying to engage them. He did it repeatedly in front of the congregation, which included their parents. No one said or did anything. I couldn't stand it anymore; and, since I was just a visiting member for a few months, I never went back. That pastor was old and disgusting. It was obvious he had been doing it a long time. Everyone just said "that's just how pastor is". I was shocked!

    The final straw for me was during sermon his sermons he encouraged his parishoniets to"run away the old people;but, keep encouraging the young people to aytend

  • kekeb

    ?? Church is just a building. Authentic relationships changes the behavior and characteristics of individuals. Just because you attend a church service doesn't make you a REAL Christian no more than going to school makes you smart. . .

    When ur friend is an international child molestor that's exactly what u do abandon them. Get as far away from them as u can. Wtf is wrong with u?

  • bella28498 .

    MF's on here either on drugs, rode the short bus, or are child predators themselves. Either way u will not be able to reason with them. This is why u have to be very careful who watch ur kids because not only do u have Eddie long but u have the idiots who think like the ppl on this post. You'd be surprise at how many especially women who allow their very young sons to be babysat by gay men or just abt any man period talking abt u shouldn't judge

  • MsVida

    That's what I don't get. It has been broadcast from here forever too...v103 has been a staple for generations in Chicago. Did you guys get Herb Kent on the weekends too? Or is the station nationally syndicated with local shows on the weekend?

  • bella28498 .

    I'm laughing because I can't believe the mindset of these weirdos... u mean to tell me an international child molestor using god name, which make it extra worse deserves a pass. Social media has truly exposed how sick, crazy, and unstable most ppl are I never knew this until social media.

    religion is used for control.... you go against your human nature because you are scared of a "pit of fire" ...you abide by man made rules because the pastor-a man..just a man (who's doing what he told you not to do ) said so

    This is so true, I had to do (and am still doing) a spiritual cleanse now.

    Although your true spirit can shine through, if you are not careful the spirit of others can taint your own.

    I found another one just now.
    Lev 27:30-34

    30‘And all the tithe of the land – of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree – belongs to ????. It is set-apart to ????.
    31‘If a man indeed redeems any of his tithes, he adds one-fifth to it.
    32‘And the entire tithe of the herd and of the flock, all that passes under the rod, the TENTH one is set-apart to ????.
    33‘He does not inquire whether it is good or spoilt, nor does he exchange it. And if he exchanges it at all, then both it and the one exchanged for it are set-apart, it is not redeemed.’ ”
    34These are the commands which ???? commanded Mosheh for the children of Yisra’?l on Mount Sinai.

  • A-way29

    Hey brotha, I found it. This is in reference of money and tithes (food)
    Deuteronomy 14-24-26

    24“But when the way is too long for you, so that you are not able to bring the tithe, or when the place where ???? your Elohim chooses to put His Name is too far from you, when ???? your Elohim is blessing you,
    25then you shall give it in silver, and shall take the silver in your hand and go to the place which ???? your Elohim chooses.
    26“And you shall use the silver for whatever your being desires: for cattle or sheep, for wine or strong drink, for whatever your being desires. And you shall eat there before ???? your Elohim, and you shall rejoice, you and your household.

  • A-way29

    Also, tithes are not done weekly. thats another deception of the christian religion.

    Shot Out to all the people who defend pedophiles & demand video taped evidence. If it wasn't for people like you, the world would NOT be such a paradise.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Let's talk about these parents.

    Children failed on all sides & now have pedophile supporters demanding "proof".

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    On Sunday, Ski stressed again that he never defended Mr. Long’s behavior.

    “Obviously there were people hurt on both sides,” he said. “My prayers have always gone out to the people who said they were victims. I wasn’t defending him. I don’t know what happened. I wasn’t there. I know he helped a lot of people. When you’re a friend of somebody you don’t abandon them.”

    Very True Words.
    I wonder if he EVER had ANY suspicion?

    I don't know the man and even if I did I still wouldn't have the right to judge him ...with that said there are good and bad people ... people love good people AND they love bad people (I have seen THE most evil humans have supporters) and for different reasons ...the person I hate YOU could love and (guess what) we both could be right

  • PFie!

    Damn good read. Thanks.

  • Genia W-m

    A loyal friend who turns a blind eye to molestation and sexual grooming while being pastor?! My goodness. He should've been a friend of Jeffrey Dahmer's!! I'm sure Long did some goods things in his life but he alone ruined his reputation. Sorry but I'm not holding on to friendships where deviance is involved. I would break ties with a relative who did this. Someone posted today that there had been rumors for years in ATL about Long. A friend who used to live there said he heard it when he was in high school and it was common knowledge so when the guys came out he wasn't surprised one bit!!!
    Long's victims have a right to tell their stories and how dare anyone ask them to shut up.

  • Jussjess25

    Yes your right.. sexual abuse is not a joke at all Im not excusing it. Im
    Just sayin we dont know if it were true or not? Im mean he was never convicted of those crimes right?

  • Jussjess25

    But where was he accused of international child molesting? Not being funny I dont know the extent of the circumstances

  • bella28498 .

    Ummmmm that was the whole purpose of leaving the country on occasions to sleep with children and not get caught.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Never convicted... ok

    But no one settles out of court because they are innocent

  • imasaneperson

    I HATE religion and I mean HATE with a capital H. For one thing it's become too materialistic and greedy in this modern age satellite TV televangelist age. I once witnessed a televangelist minister tell people that "faithfulness" in the bible means giving money to church and unfaithfulness means not giving money to church. Well even the bible disagrees with that: Proverbs 11:3 "The integrity of the upright guides them,
    but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity." In case you don'[t know, integrity means HONESTY and moral honorable behavior. Duplicity means lying, deceitfulness and double-dealing type behavior. So it's clear from that verse that duplicity/dishonesty/double-dealing are "unfaithful" by biblical terms.

    For another thing the Bible or is that "BUYBULL" is WRONG and has many offensive texts within it's pages. The Buybull starts off from the very beginning of the book getting it WRONG. It says in Genesis that the Earth was the first thing created on the first day. That assertion is WRONG. The universe is about 14
    B I L L I O N years old, and the Earth is only 4.5 billion years old. That means the universe itself came into existence about 9.5 BILLION years before Earth. The bible says earth was created before the Sun. There again the bible is WRONG. The Sun is Older than Earth. Also it says the Earth was created BEFORE all the stars in the universe. WRONG there are stars in our very own Milky Way galaxy that are at least 13.2 BILLION years old. Making them almost 9 BILLION years OLDER than earth, not younger. If the Bible were true then the very oldest stars in the universe would be just 4 days YOUNGER than earth. Yet we find that MOST of the stars in the universe are BILLIONS of years OLDER than earth. The bible is wrong/mistaken/not true.

    Don't even get me started about the Noah's ark myth in the bible. The story itself is preposterous if you think about it realistically, with any intelligence at all. Also IT JUST DIDN'T HAPPEN. Through science we can easily see that there is nothing in the geological record to indicate a worldwide flood EVER took place, not to mention one within the time frame of recorded history. There has also been NO mass extinction event within that time either. So this "infallible word of god" is already proven wrong.

  • Jussjess25

    Oh I wasnt aware of that

  • trisha hunter

    #Agreed!!!

  • trisha hunter

    When God says you shouldn't judge, he is talking about judging in condemnation. But there is a "Righteous Judgement," This the Judgement we use with the word of God." This Judgement should bring "Conviction and Repentance." It should be done with love and compassion. Now on Eddie Longs part I don't think there was any "Accountability." No confession, no correction if it was true. The Church just it under that rug and kept him in Power and Position. Like nothing happened. But here's the thing, "we are watchers over our own Souls." So Eddie Long's is held Accountable for his own soul b4 God, not the Church. "So who fooled who?" I pray whatever it easy or wasn't that he made peace with God if there was peace to be made. #NobodyGreaterThanJesus.
