Bishop Eddie Long crowned king?????

February 2, 2012

So New Birth Missionary Baptist church went through a ceremony for Eddie Long crowning him king. King? King??? Do you mean king as in Solomon or king as in T.I. Is it because of his wisdom or his wealth? They even went as far as to say he’s a new man and reborn. Is this an admission of guilt for the sexual misconduct allegations? However you feel about him or his church, you must admit that he has a cult following in some of his members. I don’t know if he will go down as a prophet or like I said before, one who knows how to profit. There really are some dysfunctions in the black infrastructure. All I want to know is how do you feel about him being crowned king?

    I’ve heard him preach something interesting. He said that if Jesus was King of Kings, then this meant that there were some other kings in our midst. And, if He (Jesus) was Lord of Lords, then that meant there were some lords in our midst. Perhaps his congregation’s way of showing their loyalty to him was to crown him king while the rest of the community may be feeling otherwise…not sure, but this may be plausible…

      They are Kings and Lord on earth especially in Foreign Countries. In the days of the Bible there were Kings.. that is why they say that Jesus is King of Kings..( he is above Kings)

    There is only one King – JESUS CHRIST!!!! I feel like you that there is some kind of “cult” following when it comes to this man. He is first of all human and he has will make mistakes. There is a whole lot in the mortar than the pestle when it comes to him and all that is happening.

    WOW,

    I don’t understand how ANYONE who has basic Bible knowledge condone or agree with this type of behavoir. The king of any church should always be GOD! A priest, pastor, bishop etc. is a servant of the Lord. How can you be a servant and a King at the same time?

    Very interesting, You can build upon the successes. You can also learn much from past mistakes, transforming that knowledge and experience into greater effectiveness. As you grow stronger and more purposeful with every experience, the best is yet to come.

    Satan Is A King In His Own Right As He Is A God As Well. There Is Nothing Special About All Of These Earthly Human God’s, Sadly They All Feels The Need Is To Shed A Light On Themselves And Turn Around And Justify There Action’s. Most Humans Are Too Dumb Like The First Man Adam Too Stay In There Place And Stand Down, Get Down, Bow Down, And Stay Down.

      Before commenting on any subject, please return to school and learn how to express yourself. I love everyone, but you have a serious problem with your spelling and proper use of words. Bless you🙏

    Ok, so because he is crowned King by a rabbi and surrounded by what claim to be a scroll from the holocaust of 312 years make it official, he is a King? This is crazy. I as a black woman, call a good black man King, but I, even in that nature would not label him King. Please, stop the nonsense.
    Its hard not to judge when you observe craziness as such. So I will not judge. Who knows what hypnosis Long is using to lure his congregation to follow in his shadow and worship him even when facts may say he is not deserving. Or least be cautious. Cult? I have heard some died hard Long followers really go off at the hint of anyone saying anything negative about this man. Would they lay their life down for him? Mmmm, that is one of the signs of a cult member. I believe some people that I heard will put themselves in harms way for this man, ( and I use this word “man” loosely).
    Lets not let this be a sign that we are loosing the battle of our black people breaking down our infrastructure. Lets stay in faith and pray for those who may be lost and hope they find their way. Sooner than later.

      Ellis.The Above also was very welled said. Doren Da you expressed your thoughts very well. For myself I am not to judge anyone. However, this crowned King by a rabbi surrounded by what cliam to be a scroll from the holocaust. Held in a Baptist church was really over the top for me. I will keep on praying and strive not to loose my own inner faith.

    This is utter foolishness!! It’s a real shame when a church congregation is more enthused about man making a mockery of the church than the mention of King JESUS!!! Jesus is the only One that should be celebrated in ANY supposedly sanctified gathering!!! SMH!!!!

    What in the world is going on, how can this be happening in the body of Christ Jesus. I think
    he should be ashamed of himself. There is only one Lord and his name is Jesus Christ the son of the Living God.

    Stop the press. I do not care what Bishop Eddie Long does from this day forward no one should report it I am sick and tired of him. I cannot believe that a man that truly loves first G-d then his wife and children would carry on in the public this way. Bishop Long needs to lay down on his face in pray. He should lay there until he feels the hand of G-d him pull up

    He obviously has no shame or any real knowledge of the Torah or he would not have allowed that fake rabbi to wrap him in the Torah. I cannot believe his congregation tolerates this behavior from him

    Let’s stop writing about him and please no more pictures of him in that ridiculous wig or whatever he is wearing on his head. We should all be in pray that his congregation comes to their sense and throws him out of that church. He is shameless and his vanity knows no bounds.

    Eddie Long is fueled by the ignorance of the people. People will do only what you allow them to do. Every last person in this church has a dysfunctional desire to have this man and church stature to be in place only because THEY want to believe it. Why do they want to believe it? Because they feel they can only acquire God through man. They are holding onto to the hope that New Birth will continue to be-the biggest and baddest church in Atlanta. Because a white Jewish man comes in and declares something it makes it true. It seems the slave mentality continues. People you better do your research. You believe in something because somebody else told you to have faith in it. Most “Christians” haven’t even researched the King James version they believe in so whole heartedly. They fail to realize the many translations done alone in the 16th century-they fail to even read upon the life of King James. this information is online. We need to do better.

      I agree totally. I am praying for hbis congregation to open their minds so that tbhey can hear the voice of God and stop listening to Bishop Long. I feel compelled to correct one statement you made. The man thbat perpetrated that fcraud was not a Rabbi he is just another man missleading the New Birth congregation.

    Here is a comment made in the “Rebirth Members Connect Group”. The members are truly showing signs of mind control or having signs of people in a cult or they are just smoking some mind blowing chronic. I didn’t want to get attack verbally, so of course I did not comment to this member”s statement but I did wanted to share. Here it is:

    From a group “New Birth Connect” member:

    “I am glad that Bishop apologized because it was politically correct, BUT he should not have had to because He is indeed a KING!!! We all are and that does not supercede that we Walk in Truth and KNOW WHO the KING OF KINGS IS! JESUS!!!! Its an Insult that People would imply otherwise!!!!! Bishop Long may be the only MAN in the Entire World that was wrapped in a Torah ~Scroll ~ THIS is truly a honor and priviledge and believe me God knew about it BEFORE it happened!!! Woooohooo!!! New Birth is CHOSEN!!!!”

      Sorry about typo, meant, “New Birth Members” not “Rebirth”. Was thinking of another church by that name. LOL

      This is another example of Bishop Long Missleading his flock. His and your ignorance of the Torah is reason rnough for him to step down as pastor of New Birth.

      • February 8, 2012 2:23 am

        @ Iris, there were people that commented on the nonsense of his statement and you should had read how this person who originally made the above statement attack others talking against the ceremony of Long being crowned. He actually was taking on 8 people. Ridiculous!

        @Dorean my comment was not meant for you. My comment was meant for any who thinks that God is not the one and only king.
