Is Heaven Designed for Bishop Eddie Long?

Americans all over the United States have turned their televisions to BET’s (Black Entertainment Television) cable station and seen Bishop Eddie Long of Atlanta’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, preaching or doing a commercial, at one point in time. Leading a mega church with over 25,000 members the prominent Bishop Long is hard to miss. In 2004, one month after voters approved an amendment in the state of Georgia’s constitution that banned gay marriage; Bishop Long led his congregation in a march of over 25,000 people against gay rights. Long is one of the most vocal activists against gay rights, and gay marriage in the Black Church.
For attempting to set such a strong example of heterosexual role modeling for Black Christians in Church today Bishop Long failed. In September of 2010 multiple allegations of four young men in their twenties, accused Long of sexual misconduct. The young men had evidence of how Long abused his spiritual guidance for youth. The evidence Bishop Long faced was in the cell phone messages, texts, and portraits, he exchanged with the four young men. Maurice Robinson, Jamal Parris, Anthony Flagg, Spencer LeGrande, and one anonymous young man, accused Long of seducing them as teenagers, and using church funds to do it. Long gave the four teenagers cash, cars, trips across the world, and gifts in exchange for sexual favors. It all began when Bishop Long befriended the teenagers between the ages 14-16 years old.
When Bishop Long spoke to his congregation of New Birth, for the first time after these allegations, Bishop Long vowed to fight the charges, and his day in court would come. While outside the church Long’s spokesperson refused any comment, and his legal team began instantly negotiating with plaintiffs.
In May of 2011 Bishop Long settled out on this same case he claimed he would fight. It was reported that Long settled the payout with an amount between 15-25 million dollars. Importantly the settlement was with a gag order.
This case is one of many that happen regularly in Black Churches across the U.S.A. Even though this case could have opened a much needed dialogue in the Black Church and Community on such topics as AIDS, homosexuality, and molestation, it could not because of the gag order. Yes the victims were compensated, but the Black Church was not. By silencing problems of importance, the stigmas in the Black Church have gotten worst. In late September, in Atlanta when Long was accused, 20 ministers gathered to pray especially for Bishop Long, and not one of them prayed for the four young men. These men were turned away by the Black Church, when they should have been loved. Bishop Long was even crowned like a king by Jewish leaders, while one of the young men attempted to committed suicide.
Religious leaders are treated as “gods” in more cases than one. But even “gods” make mistakes. But how they are even crowned gods when they prey, molest, and rape, young children. Where is the justice for our children? By leaving Bishop Long in the pulpit it says religious leaders can do whatever they want even if it’s wrong, and get away unscathed. However, humans are all equal. Religion is a choice for adults; however, it is forced on our children to believe. Yet, no one protects our children when they are violated, by the “gods”, preachers, priests, prophets, evangelists, bishops, apostles, and popes, we tell them to trust. Due to forgiveness, if violators, rapists, and murderers, or Bishop Long repents they can go to heaven. Where is the validation for the victims. So religion teaches as long as you apologize, you can do anything and still be rewarded. Victims are forced in a hell with the pain of seeing their rapist, molester,or murderer, rejoicing in heaven. It’s time for equality in our world today. The truth of religions lies needs to be recognized, in the Black Church, and Community, in order for them to move forward. It will come as evidence continues to wake humans from their willful ignorance, into learning truth.

Man Created Religon

A mortal man brought into life through supernatural power, and resurrecting from the grave ascending into the air, has acquired a status giving him legendary fame. The New Testament gives an account of Jesus Christ’s birth, life, and death. However, the history of Jesus Christ in the New Testament is written by people other than him. Due to this, the story of Jesus Christ born of an immaculate conception can not be credited, proven, or detected. When people are required to believe in something, evidence is necessary to prove its authenticity and truth. The evidence of Jesus Christ is supposedly shown through the words of 8-9 peoples’ testimonies of witness. The whole world is expected to believe in Jesus Christ based on history’s hear say, of these 8-9 people. The history of Jesus Christ, and the bible, changed over generations through the words and translations of people. The bible was translated so people of different generations could realistically understand when published in their time period.
Moreover, the bible causes mass confusion amongst Christians worldwide, following one god through his son, Jesus Christ written in the 42 different versions of the bible. How does one pick which bible is the right one when there are so many? According to Wikipedia there are at least 38,000 types of Christianity practiced worldwide today. So how can there be one true word of god or son of god, with so many variations throughout history. Yet still none of these variations have logical realistic evidence for proof that god, Jesus and the bible are real.
Let’s break this down and see how far we get………

The name Jesus originated from a Hellenistic Greek name created by early churches giving glory to Zeus and Iaso goddess formed form the names Gzeus, Gesus, and Easeus. These Greek names originated from the names Iesus, in Latin paganism, and Iesous, in Greek paganism. All these names came from the name Yashua, in Hebrew. In Hebrew scripture however, the name Yashua originates from the word YodHeyVavShinAyin. You see the letter J was not added in the English language up until about 500 years ago. King James and the Jewish Masoretic Priests helped reform our present grammar. The name Jesus was not translated into English language until 1630. In 1611 Jesus and King James names were printed as Iesous, and King Iames in the Bible.
In 332 B.C.E. Greeks led by Alexander the Great invaded ancient Kemet, Egypt. The Greeks had no alphabet, or writing language during this time. They were warlike barbarians fascinated by the intellectual Egyptians, and wanted to be in their secret spiritual system. The problem was the Egyptian Mechite Coptic Priests; teachings could not accept Greeks into the system, because human forms could not be worshipped as gods in Kemet. People of Kemet paid Homage to ancestors and stayed in tune with the universe through the principles of Maat.
After the death of Alexander the Great, his general Ptolemy V Epiphanes Eucharistos, took over control of Kemet. The Greek invaders were finally able to convince the Melchite Coptics that lived in Memphis Egypt to accept a god in human form, under Ptolemy’s leadership. The Melchite Coptics took part of the Medu Netcher writing system and adapted it to the Greek language. This is now known as Hieratic Demotic, which is proven when Rosette Stone, was used to decipher a small portion of the Medu Netcher. The Mechite Copotics accepted Ptolemy into their spiritual system and worshiped him as a god in 320 B.C.E. Ptolemy’s other Greek name was Soter meaning savior, because of his military status.
A fusion of Osiris, who was worshiped as a god with the sacred Api’s god of Memphis, added to Ptolemy created the Mechite Coptics new god. This fusion gave Ptolemy the names Osirapis or Serapis, meaning savior and leader of souls to the light as a new name for Ptolemy. Ptolemy was also called one who raises the dead, and protector of the afterlife. Serapis was later forced upon all people of Kemet to worship. Serapis was placed next to Isis replacing Osiris link to her. People who did not accept the god Serapis worshiped secretly in their home.
The Romans conquered Kemet and by 543 A.C.E. the first Roman church was built-in Kemet called the Coptic Monophysite Church. The Roman emperor Justinian appointed Baradai a priest to evangelize the Arabs and creating Islam.
In conclusion we have just reviewed the creation of religion, with proof through logical evidence. Jesus Christ and the god of the bible were created by humans and not inspired by god. Humans have been using religion to gain wealth power and control throughout history. Distrust, envy, and fear, have controlled 90% of the world for 1,200 plus years. This is the myth of all time, changing its story to keep its imaginary gods, and sons alive. Zeus, Dionysus, Osiris, Horus, Jesus, and god, are all fathers and sons that were made real through a belief forced upon people for generations. There is no evidence or proof the any god or his immortal son exists in history. Religion continues today to attack poverty-stricken uneducated people as followers. These people are easily forced, into believing, mainly because they fear to know the truth, distrusting knowledge unless it’s in the bible, and are envious to be the best immortal. The human mind can make real fake, or imaginations real. Religion will continue to control the world until knowledge of the truth destroys its power of imagination. One day Jesus Christ his father god and the bible will be myths, just like the gods of ancient Egypt and Greece.
