In Proverbs 24:17-18 The Bible Warns Us About Rejoicing Over Somebody's Fall Or Demise!


Reader, it grieves my heart when I see and read such hateful online comments about a Man or Woman of God.  I hated to read the news that Bishop Eddie Long possible has stage 4 cancer. I knew something else besides  him changing his diet, was terribly wrong with him.  I also wish  people would have more compassion for folks, who are going through. In my opinion, anybody who holds up the Christian banner and can gloat at the same time at the demised of another man really need to have their heart checked. My question is what kind of person are you when you can kick a down man or woman when they are fighting for their life?

  1. Miss Ann, have you seen his LATEST photo? He looks about 80-years-old in it. Regardless of what went down with this guy, we as the Body of Christ should keep him and his family in prayer.

  3. Miss Ann, well said. We should def have sympathy. But like I have said before, Bishop Long should have been honest about this "thorn in the flesh". People are gloating (and wrongfully so) because even when he should have repented of his short comings he ended up insinuating that there were "haters" out there. God is definitely not mocked.

    1. It's quite possible that those allegations against him were false, being that they were never proven to be true.

    2. @Anonymous...I 100% agree. The whole story about his "scandal" seemed to be fabricated. You have a minister who stood up and marched against the gross sin of homosexuality. He then supposedly molested 4 young men, who in turn settled for cash out of court. The ministers wife contemplated divorce, but decided to stand by her man. We never heard nothing from his children all the meanwhile. Thus minister was restored back into the pulpit, and was elevated in his position to the church highest office. He wrote a book appeared on a talk show and now in his dying days many are stirring controversy. This sounds like a GREAT Tyler Perry movie, produced by none other than Oprah. I never believed the testimony of those "victim" anyways. I'm not suse if they were some who were out to destroy Eddie.

    3. This might not be the right time but it is the right place to say what I think should be said. John 7:24 "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgement." Jesus said there would be "haters" not because they want to bring YOU and YOUR MINISTRY down but because of HIS NAME (Matthew 10). Paul the apostle said, "But among you, as is proper among saints, there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality or impurity... Nor should there be obscenity..." (Ephesians 5).

      Let us look at the circumstances surrounding the Bishop's shortcomings. Young men came out one by one to talk about situations that would make saints cringe. He then gives them money/settles out of court. Case is closed. Moses was attacked by Miriam, God judged between them, Miriam was punished, case concluded (Numbers 12). If this was about bringing the name of the LORD in disrepute, I believe Bishop would have let it play out in the court house. He has nothing to hide, God should definitely be on his side. He's a man of God. Him and his ministry would have been upheld and restored. Not so?

      Then Bishop has pictures of himself in spandex on social media. I'm sure he liked how he looked back then (6 pack and all). For a Bishop, going by the biblical definition of one in 1 Timothy 3, this is obscene (ref to Ephesians 5).

      Calling out on all believers here: "See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:15-16.

    4. Yup Anonymous...we have got to remember this guy is a false prophet. He has taught for to many years "another gospel", a Prosperity Gospel of which Paul says is anathema. He teaches we are "gods" and can create by speaking our reality into into existence. Weather we as humans contemplate the right and wrong of passing judgment against this man, the Lord calls him as he is.

    5. Wanted to stay silent on this but can’t anymore. Yes, we must pray for him and his family. Those who go hehehe behind his back and openly, should be ashamed. Now. The Word will stand firm until the end of Book of Revelation. One will reap what they sow. That’s for me and everyone since Adam. No man is above God’s laws. No matter what their title is and acquired wealth in this life. To those who say this was fabricated to bring E. Long down, I respectfully with absolute love say you’re mistaken. Living here in the ATL area, knowing what I know as a keyboardist in churches and what ministers are doing behind closed doors from all 4 corners of the U.S. sickens me. It sickens me to know about boys who are afraid to go up against a church that protects their “man of God.” Scriptures such as “touch not my anointed” are used to shut molested children down in the church along with dumb parents accepting under the table money. Yes, I said it. The demonic spirit of the Catholic church has crept into the black church & so many others. I was gullible enough to think that the E Long incident would bring us all closer to God, humble ourselves, repent and straighten us out along with the accused and the accusers. Yeah right. As I type this, not just E Long, but other ministers have GPS systems attached to the cars given to boys to know their whereabouts and the excuse that’s given is, “we love you and if you have any problems we can find you with no issue.” It’s hard for me to wrap around my head of what I’ve been told about what these ministers do sexually on Saturday nights. Masonic deacons fill churches and take an oath not to God but to the preacher to keep him protected. This is a cult. Years ago I played right behind Long at my former church he visited, it was unreal how he was worshipped. Not respected, but worshipped. That goes for Carlton Pearson & TD Jakes who also visited. These guys are good at what they do. As E Long has done in the past, cursed in the pulpit, tag with hiphop artist T.I., Usher, be on Ludacris’ album doing a mock sermon. They mesmerize the people and a spirit of delusion comes in and when someone steps forth with an accusation, they are 100% not believed. I pray people wake up. $15 millon was given to LeGrande, Paris, Jamal Robinson and Anthony Flagg. The E Long accusers. I wanted to believe Long when he said he’ll let God fight his battles in this trial, but not using green paper in the process. Sorry if some of you think I’m 100% off on what I’m saying, but play time is over. There will be another scandal coming, but I pray it won’t because if we all humble ourselves and fall on our knees, get out of cults the Lord will bless us. But unfortunately it’s the last hour on earth. I know some of you think I’m coming down on Long but believe it or not, I pray for Long’s healing and I hope for his repentance if he hasn’t done so, whether it be openly or between him & God which is most important.

  4. PRAY!PRAY!PRAY! For the Bishop! So many have pulled on him for encouragement now it's his time for a return from those he's invested in and the entire body of Christ. Forget his past and pray for a miricle.

  5. Miss Ann, it is not a good thing to kick someone who is down. There are people who tried to reach out to Bishop Long when they saw the sudden change in his weight but then he said he is fine and now a certified vegan. If he was man enough, he should have told the truth of what's going on. This should've shut down the rumors (& sniggering). IJS

    1. I don't think he or anyone else are obligated to reveal any personal health information unless they want to. Rumors and such will always exist. It's usually the ones reaching out who'll do the back stabbing and gossiping. He's entitled to handle his illness his way and not feed into the sensational desires of the nosy public who really don't have his best interest at heart.

  6. Well, his life has been on display since whenever, and he hasn't been ashamed of his "blessings" in public... So maybe people didn't think his kind can have it any other way. Perhaps a cautionary tale to those proponents of prosperity, hard times do actually come. Stand fast in the LORD - Philippians 4

    1. Well, people persecuted him during his prosperity and are continuing to persecute him in his illness. He doesn't seem to be hiding, he's just not giving the public all of the gritty details. Folks can really give less than two cares about his wellness, they only want to know what's wrong with him so that they can judge him further and claim that his illness is Gods wrath being taken out on him. Smh.

  7. Be sure to know your sins will find you out.

  8. I do commend the obvious members of New Birth on this blog. You guys continue to pray for your leader. If the rest of the Body of Christ refuses to pray don't you guys follow suit. I'm praying for the family having a love one in this condition is not easy. I'm going to take my "judge" robe off bc I 2 have lost someone recently to cancer.
