    This is a sound and just message!!!

  • Shandhalouis

    AMEN! Happy someone said something!

  • David L.

    I am so glad that someone, Bishop Morton, could stand on scripture and teach the people, “The Way” finally. Everyon’s opion does not matter it’s what “The Word” says.  Amen

  • Anonymous

    Amen!  Bishop Long still will suffer the consequences either way.  God is a pro-choice God.  Whatever we choose, we have to live with it.

  • Edu19_mackdavis

    Key words in Luke 17:3,4 are “If your brother sins against you”, rebuke him and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, I repent, you shall forgive him….Jesus is speaking here of one believer sinning against another believer. If the one who committed the wrong repented, the believer wronged was obligated to forgive him and not bear a grudge. The number of times he was to forgive his brother was unlimited….If I am not mistaken, and God please forgive me if I am wrong, but Bishop Long has not sinned against Bishop Morton, if a sin has been committed. When are we going to realize that there is an attack on the church as a whole? Instead of passing judgement and condemning Bishop Long, we should be praying for the young men, the members of Newbirth and of course Bishop Long. . Who is standing up for the church as a whole. We are to love and pray one for another. If one of our brethren has fallen, should we leave him down there and say “ Man you should know better, or should we reach out our hand to help him up. This situation didn’t catch God by surprise, so why are we acting as if this couldn’t have happened. We are living in perilous times. The kingdom of God is at hand, we need to be coming together in unification to show Satan that the Church still stands as One Body. Ecclesiastes 4:10 For if they fall, the one will lift him up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him.

  • Elderrc10

    I am sorry to say but Bishop Morton quoted the scripture wrong and then he taught it wrong!! Now you go read it for youself Luke 17:1-4 but really look at V.1 Bishop is offend so woe unto him….

  • Elderrc10

    very nice!

  • lam

    This is WRONG! This does not show any LOVE nor COMPASSION. What is so amazing to me is we are so quick to judge people who have fallen, or just people at all. I know I was until I found myself doing things and saying things I said I would never do. If God were to uncover our sins and display them to the world how would we feel? We may not be involved in homosexuality or lesbian-ism but there is somewhere in your lives that we have, will, or have already have fallen short. I thank God that he is not HUMAN!!!! I am not making excuses for sin, sin has been dealt with at the cross and I thank God that Jesus didnt die in vein because of what was accomplshed at the cross. Bishop Long can be restored & forgiven if he has wronged anyone. Please be careful those who are condemning Long because what will happen is your mouth will set a trap for you-then you will find yourself doing things you said you will never do.

    The body of Christ (Pastors) need to take their mouths out of peoples business and start helping people inside of their own church. Stop being concerned about building more churches and START BUILDING PEOPLE! This is ridiculous, God is not coming back for a broke church (impoverished & feeble). How many members lights are getting cut off, cars being reposessed, and there is a countless number of members who have lost their houses. But you are known as a prosperity teacher–then teach us (your members) to maintain our goods!!!! and STOP collecting money for outside activities and start collecting money to aid and assist everyone of your members every Sunday who is in need of help at this time. If you can ask for money for other stuff, then why cant you ask members to give 1.00 on every Sunday to help assist those who are members of the church who have been affected by this recession. My church has a total of 15k members and if everyone gave 1.00 every Sunday to help those people who need help with their light bills, gas, water, house notes, car notes, etc….then we would be displaying the love of God  and that would be a church that Jesus’s death would not be in vein for. Stop being overely concerned that people or not tithers, that they are shacking etc…….let the spirit of the lord condemn them and not you!!!!!! Stop asking me to go thru financial counseling with the church if I come ask the church for help—you didnt ask me to go thru financial counceling when you accepted my money. This FOOLISHNESS have got to stop in the body of Christ. I can go on and on but I choose to speak peace, love, and prosperity. I dont know the details and dont care to know the details. I am just tending my own EDEN, because I have enuff of my own business to take care of without stepping into somone else’s garden trying to tell them how to operate their business.

    God Bless

  • Thetruth

    What bothers me is that we are so quick to condemn the Catholic Church for homosexual activity, but when it is one of our own, in the black church; we try to sweep it under the rug. Let’s hold everyone to the same standard. If we criticize the Catholics for wrong doings, then we need to have that same criticism across the board. In addition I do believe that he should have made some type of apology. Long first stated that there will be no negotiations or settlements, now there is a settlement. doesn’t his church at least deserve a response?

  • True Love is “Agape”

    @Iam  In what way is Bishop Morton not showing biblically based “Agape”?  Biblical “Agape” love is rooted in truth for the word of God.  Where was the “Agape” for the black church as a whole so as not to leave confusion, which is what Long did, which is not of God.  Bishop Morton has scriptural authority to call Long to the carpet of repentance according to Paul’s admonitions in 1 Corinthians and 1&2 Timothy.  Whether Long wants to disown Morton now or not, Morton is Long’s spiritual father and not TD Jakes.  Long is trinitarian and Jakes is oneness pentecostal.  They don’t even believe in the same doctrine.  That is a red flag there in itself.  But talking about love, “Agape” goes both ways.  Where was the “Agape” from Long in not leaving people in confusion over a non-disclosure clause.  Where was Long’s demonstration of FAITH in standing against the “attacks from the enemy”.  How does that teach his congregation how to stand firm in their faith against the attacks from satan, if the allegations were false.  Folks, please study the bible and the qualifications to of a bishop and Aposlte Paul’s admonitions to the church and Timothy.  Those scriptures explain what apostacy is going in the church today.

  • BlackBerryDubby

    Paul Morton, you will not forgive him if he did repeat.  It would just be another message that you can preach in your church.  This proves it.  Go to him in private, send him a call, keep sending him message not set up in church with this garbage.  You don’t hear whit folks talking about their folks mess ups like we do.  You are not I repeat not perfect. Have you repented for your on affairs?  L

  • Anystarpublishing

    I agree with “thetruth’s” comment below and I also commend Bishop Morton on saying what all of the other Pastors (who are worried about their name) are afraid to say and sweeping this issue under the rug. Why settle on an issue this serious and of this nature and offer your church no explanation but jump right back into the pulpit as if nothing happened? Especially when there is documented evidence that a large portion of church funds went to provide lavish gifts and trips to funds his extravaganzas. This is not just an issue of an affair with an adult. This is an issue of coercion and manipulation with young boys while using his power, position and church funds. I have personally witnessed his and other “mega church’s” run by his fellow associates ask that the congregation to give “love” offerings in amounts as much as $1, 000 and more per service. Supposedly so that God can “bless them in a mighty way.” The members have a right to know the details if he is misusing church funds in the name of God for his own selfish gain. And as far the standing by a friend comment below….Morton is doing just that but he is also letting it be known that his interest is in protecting the innocent children who are affected by this sin of perversion and condoning it. How many more innocent kids have to be hurt before he is stopped? If an innocent person is accused of an act of this nature there is no court on earth that should be able to shut them up from publicly defending himself no matter how long he took(since his excuse to settle was so that he could return to preaching)…Guess he’ s trying to get back to being paid. People wake up and know God and the word for yourself so you don’t keep relying upon false preachers to “teach” you the word. And stop paying for prayers. Let God show you who to give to and what amount to give and maybe you won’t be funding trips for false preachers to go on vacations to places that you yourself have never gone.

  • Macnificent2u

    Much respect to the comments of Roland and Anystarpublishing for hitting it right on the mark. This was never an attack on the church, New Birth, this was the wrongful act of one man who happen to be the leader of the church. Let’s not get side tracked… It is only by becoming Godlike that we can know God – and to become Godlike is to identify ourselves with the devine element which in fact constitutes our essential nature, but of which, in our mainly voluntary ignorance, we choose to remain unaware…

  • RaydaPolitician

    Don’t bring white folks into this.  What is right is right.  He spent a lot of money on personal nonsense and some of that money belong to the Church you have to tell them something.  Worship God not a Man and it seems like a lot people who follow him got the message messed up!!!  

  • mspattymelt

    It may not be a direct hit on the church itself…but as long as you have “zombies” inside and supporting the acts of their leader then there will always be this type of leader….I do commend Morton for saying what he said (not a van of him either) but Eddie has not REASON to repent——HE AINT SORRY FOR BUT ONE THING–HE GOT CAUGHT…….and as long as his zombies continue to foot the bills for his mess then that is all he need them for them to continue to do..apologize /repent—FOR WHAT?

  • Bobbie

    If He call himself rebuking one he should rebuke all because you mean to tell me it took this long for you to attack this man just because he would not respond to you. And what about  discernment if God can give you revelation on a sermon why he didnt show you this from the beginning. I wish you all will stop playing with God

    This is so deep. It is so deep. To deep . I suggest that no one comments on the matter ever and I do mean no one.

  • Peacemaker

    Some folks just want to sit back and watch, and talk, apparently you re one of them. However, thank God there are those of us who are not afraid to speak against wrong; wherever they find it. If Martin Luther King had thought like you we’d still be sitting in the back of the bus….
