Now we believe in God's forgiveness, we believe that Eddie Long will be forgiven and needs to be prayed for, but we definitely have an issue with this. Contrary to what Creflo Dollar stated, this is not just a "crash"...hell he is acting like this is a fender bender on the highway that should be swept under the rug! As stated by one of my friends, Creflo conveniently forgot to leave out the "co-pay" argument of insurance. In order to have "insurance" you must take some responsibility and pay for it.
It just amazes us how the same people defending this man being a manipulator, pedophile, and adulterer would be the same ones ready to crucify him if he were a regular guy accused of the same things on the 6 o'clock news. Often times religion can be a large tool to manipulate people when put in the hands of those with bad intentions. See video of one of Eddie Long's accusers speaking out below:
That's right people, not everyone who preaches was "called" to preach. Some of these pastors are modern day pimps, thieves, and hoes. Some are really good actors and see financial opportunity and personal gain in preaching. Those people get "called" to preach because of the money and fame and often with fame people think they are invincible. We are greatly disturbed that some people have a cult like mentality where they will blindly follow a pastor no matter what his indiscretions are because they are being manipulated by religion, power, and grandeur. See below video of Pastor and Wife popped in drug and weapon bust:
I mean what innocent person would cough up $25 million dollars and apologize privately for things they were accused of that they did not do?! You'd have to take me to trial and we would have to battle this thing out...I'm not going out like that because I'm innocent! Let's not even get into why you have $25 million dollars to give away in the first place!
At the end of the day everyone, even pastors are equally responsible for their actions...and at the end of the day pastors have to answer to God for how they led his sheep.
What do you think about the whole fiasco? Would you go back to Eddie Long's church after all of this? Is Creflo Dollar right in defending Eddie? In your eyes is Creflo Dollar a preacher who was "called" to preach?
