CNN VS the Black World

Last Sunday morning the black church world stopped for a moment when Bishop Eddie L. Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta addressed his congregation. The 25,000 member church (once the largest of any kind in America) was briefed concerning a lawsuit that alleges their pastor had sexual relations with 4 young men. His statement to his church was simple but clear. He said that he never claimed to be perfect but he was not the man the media portrayed him to be. With that in mind, he declared that he wanted his day in court. Further, he vowed to fight the civil lawsuit.

    I don’t know why black Christians do not say very loudly that abortion is genocide by the liberal elite. Black children are killed at a much higher percentage by the liberal’s promotion of abortion than other aborted babies.

    Some black cinos (Christians in name only) think of abortion as a political ‘hot button’ issue rather than murder. Since race seems to take the place of Grace when it comes to politics, abortion is just a inconvienient topic. The argument is put in terms of the woman’s rights. The fetus ‘magically’ has no rights until it is out of the womb.
    Suffice to say, many ‘churches’ have watered down the word to appease the people rather than God. We’ve suddenly forgot that the earth is not our final resting place and that we all will have to give an account.

    There is a great article in ‘TheVineNews’ by Rev. Redmond on preachers that have ‘fallen from grace’, here’s the link

    I don’t know if the charges against Bishop Long are true or not but in the end the truth will be known. I do agree however, that the media uses any opportunity it can find to attack the Christian Church in an attempt to discredit the Gospel of Christ.
    What they don’t realize is that Jesus message does not stand or fall on the conduct of a mere man, no matter how prominent he is. Humanity is sinful and that sin affects all of us, even Christians. So the principles taught in the Bible are still relevant no matter how many “prominent” clergy fall (or are pushed) from grace.
    These allegations are made by the media to be an indictment on all Christians and they will milk this situation for all it is worth. Thank God, Jesus offers a way of forgiveness, grace and mercy.
