This one is total blasphemy, Eddie Long wraps himself in a Torah, and is declared "king" by his church. Here one can see the abuses of false Christian Zionism married to the prosperity gospel seeking to elevate their hireling to "royalty" status presenting him as a would be Israeli "king" with the Hebrew language included.
Now remember Eddie Long, is the one who was exposed as being involved in sex scandals. There was settlements made:
Long was accused of sexual misconduct in September 2010 by four young men, all former members of New Birth. They filed a lawsuit against the pastor claiming that he had lavished them with gifts, trips and money while coercing them into sexual contact.
Long denied the charges of sexual misconduct and vowed to fight them, all the while maintaining that he tried to serve as a father figure to the young men and offer them support, financial assistance and guidance.
In the midst of the case, just as a settlement was being discussed, Kemp, who was never a member of the church and lived in Florida and North Carolina, appeared in Atlanta, joined the suit "unofficially," and received $94,000 without ever officially becoming an "accuser," Fox 5 reports.
In May of 2011, an out-of-court settlement was reached between Long and his accusers in which each was to receive undisclosed sums of money as long as the case was not discussed. Sources estimate the cost of the settlement to have been around $15 million.
There also was a scandal regarding investments.
Eddie Long, the legally embattled bishop of Atlanta-based New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, has been sued by 10 members of his 25,000-strong congregation for allegedly coercing them into investing in a million-dollar Ponzi scheme, it emerged Wednesday.
The case involving Long is one of the highest-profile accusations to date of so-called religious affinity fraud, in which potential investors are targeted through a faith-based organization, according to The Wall Street Journal.
It is amazing is guys like this can still fill the pews and get away with theatrics like the above.
Jhn 10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
Hmmm the first picture reminds me of this:
They carried the Popes around on an elevated chair too.....
