If I woke you up and told you that controversial Bishop of New Birth church, Eddie Long was crowned king I bet you would ask if I have had a fever. Well, not only was he crowned king but he also got dressed in some despicable out fit and was paraded in front of adulating worshipers. The “humble man” of God was only too pleased to oblige as Ralph Messer (who claims to be a Rabbi bringing Torah truth to Christians) with a couple of supposed Jews masqueraded with garb and old bits of scrolls declared how worthy and anointed Bishop and “king” Long is to read sacred scriptures inscribed there in. I kid you not. Though I have a head ache now.
Mix Word of Faith into your theology with a good dose of belief in an open canon and sure enough you are bound to get a “fresh revelation”. Paul was right:
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons. 1 Timothy 4:1
I still can’t resist laughing at the ring of his new found title “king bishop” Eddie Long. But is that title really biblical?
Wow, a woman touching the Torah!!! On behalf of all Jews (I don’t represent them, but still can say it right?), that’s sacrilege. Rabbi Akiba would be turning in his grave!!!
Now, seriously, I am a christian, and I find this offensive to the extreme. Who is that guy proclaiming Long as a king? “the humble man?”, the good actor man I would say.
Total depravity, no regard for the Word of God, and a defiance to Scripture.
