Bishop Eddie Long ACCUSED Of Targeting Church Members With Ponzi Scheme

Bishop Eddie Long is facing more legal woes as he's been named in a high profile civil lawsuit claiming he encouraged some of his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church members to invest in a Ponzi scheme. Get the deets inside....

 

Bishop Eddie Long, the pastor of New Birth, who recently made headlines after it was revealed that a tell-all book is being written by the several young men who have accused him of sexual misconduct, is know being accused of financial misdoings.  Shocker.

In a new civil lawsuit filed in the state of Georgia, 10 members of New Birth claim they were "coerced" into investing with Ephren Taylor Jr., the former chief executive of City Capital Corp. in Chicago. The members say they were "...promised 20 percent annual returns on safe investments," but instead, their money was diverted to a failing company."

Joseph Borg, the Alabama securities commissioner and a past president of the North American Securities Administrators Association, told the Wall Street Journal.

"I've seen more money stolen in the name of God than any other way. Seven out of 10 of our cases involve affinity fraud, and in the South, probably 40 to 50 percent have a religious angle."

Folks using Jesus as their hustle. It's real out here...

Proverbs 28:6 Better to be

Proverbs 28:6 Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and rich. Pro 28:7 Young people who obey the law are wise; those with wild friends bring shame to their parents. [fn] Pro 28:8 Income from charging high interest rates will end up in the pocket of someone who is kind to the poor. Pro 28:9 God detests the prayers of a person who ignores the law. Pro 28:10 Those who lead good people along an evil path will fall into their own trap, but the honest will inherit good things. Pro 28:11 Rich people may think they are wise, but a poor person with discernment can see right through them. Pro 28:12 When the godly succeed, everyone is glad. When the wicked take charge, people go into hiding. Pro 28:13 People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy. Pro 28:14 Blessed are those who fear to do wrong, [fn] but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble.

So sad. Eddie Long is a man

So sad. Eddie Long is a man and they make mistakes. That's why you always follow man as he follows God...and when that strays you still follow God's word. The investing from the members too, that sounds shady. And it never works, the members always have the most to lose. It just bothers me to hear that when a leader is exposed for his wrong doings...alot of folks start attacking religion and church talking bout...see that's why I don't go to church....mmmhmmmm see that's why i dont pay offering or tithes....puhlease. God is still the same...people just do what they do. Don't be ignorant.

"Folks using Jesus as their hustle. It's real out here..." Ya know!! But church has been the biggest hustle since organized religion. People are easily fooled, guillible, vulnerable, and just want to believe so they are brainwashed. It doesn't take much to brainwash people because they don't take the time out to seek truth for themselves. Snakes like Eddie Long know it and take advantage of them. But really, celebrity worshipping is right behind preacher worshipping. I never understood how people can give their money away to someone just because they can make them feel good (ie. laughing, singing, doing the holy ghost dance, etc..), and then praise them like they are a god. It's like feeding a beast that eventually gets out of control.

This is the kind of people in

This is the kind of people in America that you bloggers need to criticize and judge, these false prophets that use the church to steal people's money and boy's virginity i the name of God. These are the people you idolized and refer to as being good role models and pillars of the Society. Focus your hate at this wolf in sheep clothing and leave the Beyonce and Rihanna alone they are not pretending to be of God , they are entertainers plain and simple.

Luke 12:2-3 (The Message) You

Luke 12:2-3 (The Message) You can't keep your true self hidden forever; before long you'll be exposed. You can't hide behind a religious mask forever; sooner or later the mask will slip and your true face will be known. You can't whisper one thing in private and preach the opposite in public; the day's coming when those whispers will be repeated all over town.
