Creflo Dollar who recently supported Bishop Eddie long and publicly spoke out for all of his former members to return to New Birth and Bishop Paul Morton who recently spoke against Bishop Eddie Long have a lot in common and they both do not even realize it. Dollar and Morton have opposite viewpoints of Bishop Eddie Long’s past sex allegations; however, they both have revealed they lack peace as supposedly men of God and it is so sad. Neither of them is thinking about how God feels about them using the pulpit to speak out about their personal thoughts on Bishop Eddie Long’s business. It was not appropriate for Creflo Dollar and Bishop Morton to have outbursts in the House of God, not their house. They are pastors over God’s House and they both will be held accountable if they do not publicly apologize to the body of Christ for their misconduct. You may wonder why we do not support either case if one is for or against Bishop Eddie Long. Simply because they were both wrong in the eyes of God for using the pulpit to express their personal opinions.

He’s issued an open letter regarding the matter is right on and we hope pastors and their opinions of the Long case will use some discernment before embarrassing themselves.
Lerone Martin’s Open Letter to Creflo Dollar
Creflo Dollar who allegedly owns a $2.5 million apartment in the Time Warner Building, wants to build an arena-sized mega church in Bronx, New York. He desires to purchase the long-dormant Kingsbridge Armory in The Bronx. According to the New York Post, he offers to turn it into an arena and multipurpose facility and he would the development happen with his own money. The offer came after a yearlong study of the armory by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., who assisted to plan the last proposal put together by the Bloomberg administration to change it into a retail and entertainment center.
AT2W readers, did you listen to Not Your Typical Negro’s video revealing Creflo Dollar defending Bishop Eddie Long? It was cruel and very disrespectful not only to the former members of New Birth, but also to God. Creflo Dollar did not once consider the hurt feelings of those who may have been personally and emotionally abused by Bishop Eddie Long and his staff. The majority of those who left New Birth Missionary Baptist Church were long-suffering, because there were plenty of times Bishop Eddie Long would throw out harsh words in the pulpit against those who were not idolizing him or agreeing with anything that was not in line with the Word of God, the same sort of arrogance you heard on the taped video, NYTN provided for us to hear. What Dollar fails to recognize is this fact, ministers are responsible for what they say in the pulpit and how they act, they do not have the right to place the blame on the former members of New Birth for not wanting to be under the ministry of someone who was accused of (child) molestation. His harsh cruelty could easily discourage former members of New Birth from feeling a part of the body of Christ, this has went on for years and it is time to stop preachers like Dollar from lashing out on those who have endured enough pain.
