Who is Bishop Eddie Long?
when a "pastor" sexually assaults one of his members, it is not between him and God. He is put in a position of trust and when he breaks that trust, he is not a man of God. If any pastor were to assault one of my family, God would surely need to intervene.

AMEN, Shira, 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.
What is sad is people will listen to these FALSE TEACHERS, and SERVANTS OF SATAN, but they will never ever open their Bibles and study, to learn and know GOD'S TRUTH.
I know this to be a fact because I have members of my own family who follow and defend these FALSE TEACHERS, but you cannot get them to open a Bible and study.

I like Patrick's statement, "it time for Christians to stop persecuting Preachers."
not by Holy Word of God ...Rom 16:17 demands that True Christians mark those who cause strife
Eddie Long is a lying WOLF
Christ said MANY would come in His name - not a few
funny how those in POWER are believed over the victims ...yet that is WHAT POWER does ...it BLINDS those who idolize Eddie - they cannot SEE his sins because they are drunk on Eddies power too busy worshiping Eddie they forgot about GOD and cannot SEE Eddies lies
---Rhonda on 7/3/11|
rickey, in the case of eddie long. no one persecued him. actually, he is persecuting his members. he is the most fake so called preacher I ever saw...haven't actually seen him either. A false prophet.
---shira3877 on 7/3/11|
I like Patrick's statement, "it time for Christians to stop persecuting Preachers."
On the real, let's look at our own lives. I don't think that he did it. Even if he did it's between him and God.
We people say, "I'm going to pray for him"....how do they pray? Pray for condemnation, forgiveness, restoration? What?
I say this, if a person just going to criticize the matter just let it go.
---Rickey on 6/30/11|
btw Eddie Long did repent he SETTLED out of court
no person who is accused of any crime would settle out of court if they were TRULY innocent
the man could repent until the end of this age it would not matter he is a false minister
---Rhonda on 6/30/11|
Eddie Long needs to openly repent to the congregation. If he does not, God will kill him.
LOL I needed a good laugh today ...God will NOT kill anyone to make any point ...The Father in Heaven has allotted man time here in this gods world 2Corin 4:4 to prove that we CANNOT live without his HOLY and JUST laws
when Christ returns to establish Gods Kingdom on Earth and rule from Jerusalem with His Saints counterfeit christianity will become extinct because Satan the author of it will be bound during the millennium
---Rhonda on 6/25/11|
Eddie Long needs to openly repent to the congregation. If he does not, God will kill him. He has misled many christians, and he needs to repent wholeheartedly. Putting his pride before hurting souls is just wrong. Before he asks God for repentance, he needs to go to his brothers/sisters first and ask for repentance.

..... I wonder would Bishop Long walk away from all his wealth.
That would certainly be impressive and be a powerful statement of who or what he loved most all his riches or Jesus?
---FRANK on 11/17/10|
We need to remember that just because someone preaches, even reads from the Bible he is not always right! We are taught to compare the person with Jesus. Does the person in question act like Jesus? He should! If he is a pastor/Bishop/priest, whatever you want to call them they were given Jesus as a example.
Would we have caught Jesus riding in a Bentley or its equivalent of the day?
I don't think so!
Jesus shunned the riches of this world for the riches of heaven!
It's shameful how people will believe anything because its Riches they really want and they feel good when they think God is authorizing their riches or hunt for it!
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge".
---FRANK on 11/17/10|
Prior to September, I had never heard of Mr. Long, nor had I read any of his books, listen to any of his sermons or attended any of his conferrences. After learning about the allegations, I was very uncomfortable and very troubled by Mr. Long. I am personally against becoming wealthy preaching the word of God. We are to store up heavenly riches opposed to earthly and prosperity Is spiritual and not tangible. My prayers rest with the victims, Mr. Long and finally all his followers. I must digress...
---Crystal on 10/28/10|
It seems to me That Bishop Eddie Long and his Church are a true cult. This cannot be called a church, all the congregation do is worship the Pastor, not the Lord. People defending him say nothing of GOD -just how great Long is. There are more pics of Long in the Church than Jesus.A So called church where no one defends the teaching of God in this situation of Long's right now - there is something wrong, and NO a Church is not a CORPORATION - he can get a job at a corporation - don't use the house of GOD as a COMPANY, that isn't the intent. This church and Long needs to realize that they should be worshipping GOD and not Long or $$, dollar put GOD first and prosperity will follow, you don't preach prosperity over the Word of GOD -
---Hazel on 10/4/10|
Long's ministry is based on his own pride. Anyone can speak the word, even the devil knew the word and quoted it and twisted it to Jesus in the wilderness.
If Jesus didn't know the truth of the word, satan may have tripped him up,but Jesus KNEW the Word and was the Word, amen?
If you study the word, and put TRUTH inside of you, then you will know them by their fruit and Eddie long's fruit is dried up and eaten up by demons of lust.

No, I know through reading the sermons on you tube he teach non-Bible base docterine that is spoke of in the bible. I can't believe anybody that listen, still stay. With what I heard this man is capable of anything. His Ministry need to be audited. He took the church money and brought his house under the chruch name and then turned it over to himself. His non-profit status should be stripped. Where is the IRS they need to check out all his dealings and they know what he is capable of.
---Brenda_Anderson on 9/30/10|
Sad to me that the membership of this church will allow this person to stand in the pulpit and hold his self out of the commandments of the God most of us worship.
Its not Mr. Long that will be judged. He has proven his self in N.C. and now in Lithonia. The congregation, those who donate heavily each month that should now look in the mirror.
This church was ask to submit financial documents to Congress and the ECFA for accountability. They refused. Do we , and I say we those outside the congregation wonder why. Mr. Long painted it as a racist issue. I hope that Congress and the IRS come down him.
A prayer for each member who allows this man to represent gods word should not sleep well until this seed is removed.

Like pastor Haggard and others, Long's ministry will forever be changed and lost supporters.

He is no diff than any of the others that may be on tv-radio. He may relate some things from the O-Testament to the N-Testament which is good.
If he is a trin-minister, his teachings are False which pertains to Man-made salvations that came from here, 2nd Cor.11 v's 14-15, once saved always saved, no works salvation, the sinners prayer etc & with his hand out for your money. They dont care for our soul.
---Lawrence on 2/9/10|
Brittany, if many of the things Eddie L. Long preaches is taken out of context, how is he preaching the Gospel?
Do you know what the TRUE GOSPEL IS?
---Rob on 2/8/10|
Bishop Long is my pastor and I love him. Many things that he says are taken out of context. He preaches the gospel according to how it is written. If you read the word for yourself you would know this. New Birth is a great place and we do alot of things for the community. Bishop is so inspiring!

Eddie Long is a charismatic Mega-church Baptist minister from the Atlanta suburbs.
He may be a little full of himself but I've seen nothing that would send off alarms.
I tend to prefer less theatrics but I found his sermons pretty basic baptist evangelicalism.
Since the question has been raised I will add him to my prayer list and not worry another minute about it.

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
We are called to be watchman on the wall. The Lord promises to gather ALL of His sheep even in the midst of false teaching. I am a witness that the Lord will draw His sheep and lead them to Himself. True believers I encourage you (us) to seek the Lord and point others to Christ!
---Jerry on 11/23/09|
With my own eyes and with my own ears, I heard Eddie L. Long tell people he is the Word of God. This goes against what is written 1in John 1:1. In the same sermon Eddie L. Long told people people that he himself, is the Lord of his church. This goes against what is written in Philipians 2:6-11.
---Rob on 2/10/09|
In 2003 in his sermon entitled I have seen the star, use using Matthew 2:1-12 as his text.
I saw with my own eyes, and heard with my own ears, T.D. Jakes make the following statement. " I am not concerned with preaching about Christ because I am more concerned with preaching about the star. The people of God are to be walking in darkness so they can follow the star.This goes against what is written in John 8:12 and John 3:19-21.
Mike K. if these men are spirit filled ministers of the gospel, the questions I have is they are filled with what spirit, 1 John 4:1, and what gospel are they ministering, Galatians 1:6-10?
---Rob on 2/10/09|
Patrick, have you ever read what is written in John 3:19-21? If so, I would like to hear your thoughts.
---Rob on 2/10/09|
Bishop Eddie Long is a Spirit filled Minister of the Gospel, I don't think he is heretical unless if you come up with specifics that can be proven to be against the holy Scriptures.
And Bishop TD Jakes wouldn't be inviting him as a speaker in his MegaFest meetings or crusades. Right?
Unless if you think that he is also another heretical teacher of the Word.
I need to hear your response on this issue.
---Rev.Mike_K on 2/9/09|
I have listened a few times to Eddie L. Long.
The things that came out of his mouth were not only heresy, but they were blasphemy against CHRIST HIMSELF.
For a person to say that Eddie L. Long is one of the greatest preachers this church age has to offer, that his teaching are phenominal, and his revelation of the Word of God comes strait from heaven, either they have a lack of knowledge about the Bible, or what is written in 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2, and 2 Timothy 4:1-4 is true.
---Rob on 2/9/09|
Bishop Eddie Long is one of the greatest preachers this church age has to offer. His teachings are phenominal and his revelation of the Word comes straight from heaven. If anyone has a problem with the things that come out of his mouth, take Bishops advice and study the Word for yourself. Also, on a personal note "it time for Christians to stop persecuting Preachers." We need to stop looking at the cars they drive and the suits they wear and focus on the words that come out of their mouth. It amazing how foolish we are when it comes to gambling and the lottery, but we're experts on whose a false prosperity preacher!
---Patrick on 2/8/09|
A few years ago while watching Eddie L. Long on television, I heard him tell people "IF ANYONE GOES AGAINST MY WORDS, THEY ARE GOING AGAINST THE WORD OF GOD, BECAUSE I AM THE WORD OF GOD. IF ANYONE GOES AGAINST ME, THEY ARE GOING AGAINST THE LORD, BECAUSE I AM THE LORD OF THIS CHURCH."
Unless things have changed, and I was not told about these changes, the BIBLE, not Eddie L. Long, is the WORD OF GOD, and CHRIST, not Eddie L. Long, is the LORD.
---Rob on 5/24/08|
Bishop Eddie Log is first and foremost a man. A man who has answered the call of God on his life. He is a man who loves his family and his church family. He is a man that has bought houses and cars for single parents, paid tuition for kids to go to school and teaches the word of God to the point it seems as if he has been following me. He is my spirtual father and I love him.

Residing as an expatriate for the past few years in the middle-east-(Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Kuwait) during my duty and services as a dedicated, faithful Christian and American Citizen only to hear and read about someone, anyone to include Bishop Longs misuse and seemingly abuse of my donations is NOT acceptable!!!! Call it what you want too, however some of the money that was misappropriated on a Bentley, private jet, etc belonged to me and I didnt intend for it to be abused in such a manner!
---Nancy on 2/28/08|
amen stephen preach it!
---Andrea on 8/23/07|
The bottom line is, turn the TV off, find a local Pastor that teaches the word and study. We spend more time watching Christian TV than visiting the orphans, caring for the sick and poor as the Bible instructs. Turn the TV off and go do what Jesus commanded. One of which was not waste time arguing over Eddie Long. If he's right God will defend. If not then God will expose. Now go tell somebody about Jesus and not Eddie Long.

Bishop Eddie Long is an anointed Man of God who does preach biblical teachings.
---Cheri_Angelique on 7/21/07|
I've read many of the blogs on this page... the thought occured to me that God used a donkey to speak... he can also use Bishop Long. The sad part is that once he falls all of those who were followers of his ministry will be in trouble. He seems to preach a message of prosparity... but God is so much more than that! So much more.
---sgreen on 3/13/07|
He teaches some false doctrine- I've heard him. He said that the rapture os the church was unbiblical, and if it really did happen it would be to get rid of those hindering God from returning to the earth. He also said that the church has to set up Gods kingdom on this earth before Christ could return.Once we get everything in order then we can tell Jesus he can come now. HEEELLLLOOOO!!!!
---craige on 12/29/06|
Bishop Eddie Long is probably the only preacher that I will turn off Sunday night football to watch. There are some that seem kind of put off by some of his theology. I don't always agree with everything he says but I interpret scripture w/ scripture and if it is biblically accurate then I'll receive it. This what we should all do. I saw on one of his recent broadcast that he was admonishing the congregation to study the Word for themselves and not just take his word for it. You have to respect that.
---Patrick on 12/26/06|
bishop dont preach on sound doctrines because God did take a vagina out of man to make a woman and God word is not fresh sperm
---robert_wynn on 10/26/06|
I've read all the response's to this blog and the funny thing is we are defending a man named eddie long so passionately, But no one defends the Word of God, it's not about the bishop.Read these verse's: In 1 peter 1:24-25 and in 2 timothy 2:14-19 these verses should sum it all up for us all it did for me. God bless you all.
---Johnas on 9/5/06|
Why write blogs about someone you don't like? Bishop Long teaches straight from the Bible. He references Scripture to support what he says. If you don't agree, stop visiting, watching, listening, & shutup. Spend your time doing what you enjoy instead of attacking a man & his family. If you are a true Christian, stop throwing stones &let God deal with it all. Focus on getting your life right. Remember what mama said when we were kids, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."
---Nikki on 8/11/06|
Hating can be unfounded. It is simply that some people want what you drive, crave the respect you command. Eddie Long is a man who has availed himself to be used of God. We need to show more appreciation for men like these. I honour and respect these men and urge others to do likewise. The bible states to "touch not my annointed and do my phrophets no harm", don't let you vilication be an indictment against you in heaven's court. Don't criticize what you don't understand.
---Malcolm on 8/9/06|
Bishop this Bishop that....stop. I've heard this mans message and it is more than some lame get rich quick through christ crap. He is changing peoples lives and their mindset. If you don't like him fine......I'll go to war with the man any day. Also his teachings are based on scriptue you just have to read.
---King_James on 8/9/06|
I understand that some people like him, but no God honoring man could stand before Robert G. Mugabe and listen to the man talk about "the role of a leader" without demanding this person who has destroyed the lives of so many repent.
---Realist on 8/5/06|
I understand the people saying that our attention should be on God and not the man preaching, none the less, there is a gift that was given to this man, as gifts were given onto others. As christians our response should be to show love. All this hating is not from God. If you disagree with Eddie Long examine whether it's personal opinion or biblical foundation, and if you find that he is a false prophet, pray for him. THAT is the way to handle things as a christian. Through love, not hate.
---Patrick on 8/1/06|
since i started going to new birth 5 years ago, my life has changed. God has shown me so much, changed me so much. Bishop says it in the pulpit and it happens in my life. it has happened so much that i no longer believe in coincedence, only providence. once God shows you Himself nothing anyone can say will deter you. no longer believe, you know that you know that you know. and i KNOW that He is GOOD and Bishop is 1 of His mouthpieces. Hate on Haters while we just keep falling more in love with Yeshua!

I agree with you rick, Millions have been decieved. Matthew 15;14 They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.Revelation 13;13; 19;20. Miracle-working false prophet.
---winna3836 on 5/23/06|
To the person of the original blog, I wonder what your message is about? How many people have you pulled out of darkness? Whoes life is better because they came in contact with your lifestyle and immediately decided to make a decision to serve Christ? Are the people you are connected with blessed? Or has their situation gone down? Or even poorer since they have known you? Are you uplifting people? Or are you encouraging them to settle and accept less for the sake of the "Gospel"? I just wonder.
---cococriss on 5/16/06|
Eddie Long and all the other prosperity liars are about money. These ministries play on the carnal weaknesses of other spiritually blind humans that desire prosperity. They teach one to trust in giving money for blessings while using the word of God as their tool. Carnal minded people can't see that these preachers are rich only because other carnal people send them allot of money hoping to hit the spiritual lottery. Trust in Jesus not these preachers of darkness.
---Rick on 5/14/06|
Bishop Eddie L. Long is one of the finest men of God today, his teachings are based on Biblical truth, and he leads by example. I love my Bishop and spiritual father in the faith; he's a out standing Pastor and world changer and leader.

---Hayward on 4/9/06|
I have to admit I have not listened to Eddie Long in a while. However, the last few times that I did listen he was preaching doctrine contrary to scripture. He preaches a prosperity doctrine that is not based on scripture but on poor biblical hermeneutics. He is one of many who do this i.e Creflo Dollar
---Leslie_Sexton on 2/23/06|
You know im so sick and tired of people who can't read the bible for themselves. Yes the preacher can tell you anything but it's up to you read and understand god's word yourself. That is why you put your faith in god not the preacher after all he is just a man. If eddie long is a false prophet god will deal with him.
---andryce on 2/19/06|
Bishop Long is only reinforcing God's Word. God's Word is what it is. You are either for God or against God, not Eddie Long. Bishop Long is only the messenger, albeit God's annointed messenger.

Bishop teaches from the text and if you can see it in black and white in the Bible..And ask the Lord for understanding, not Eddie Long than how can i jude this man to be a false teacher if i can see it and study and ask the lord to reveal it too me and show me the truth..
---Albert_Taylor on 2/16/06|
