It's hard not to chuckle a little from Bishop T.D. Jakes statement as to why he hasn't spoken out on the allegation being made against Bishop Eddie Long, because his thoughts are my sentiments exactly.
“You can’t make great decisions with poor information. Until you can separate facts from conjecture, there is nothing to say,” said Jakes.
This past Sunday, Bishop Long preached about overcoming painful situations, and addressed his congregation about the allegations being made against him. And while rumors circulated in the days prior to Sunday's service that he would step down from his position, he said that he wasn't going anywhere. His plans are to stay and fight this.
There's no doubt that this is going to be a long battle for all the parties involved, and Fox 5 Atlanta are aggressively seeking answers outside from the court system. They recently caught up with one of Long's accusers, Jamal Parris, to hear his side of the story:
“When all this is over, one thing is for sure; somebody, if not everybody in it, is going to need the blood of Jesus Christ,” Jakes continued to preach during his own Sunday service held this past weekend.
“So we’re just standing in the corner with a blood bucket. And whoever needs some, can get some. I don’t know about you, but before sprinkling some on anybody else, I want to put a little bit of this on myself,” he added.
In the meantime, Jakes said “Christians should just pray” and know that once everything is said and done, “God will give the victory.”
