Bishop Eddie Long Announces Suicidal Thoughts During The Gay Sex Scandal!

Taking your own life is a serious issue, especially for a Bishop to admit during one of his recent church services. Bishop Eddie Long told New Birth Missionary Baptist Church with tears in his eyes, “condemned from the four corners of the Earth, I had a moment…I had a moment…I wanted to kill myself and was ready.”

Long was served with four lawsuits in 2010 for sexual relations with young men. One year later the lawsuits were dismissed on the account of "with prejudice." How did Long stay strong and not end his own life? 

"There is no greater power than the power of love," said Long to his congregation. In the video with a long beard, red shirt, and black striped suit he said, “It’s not a Scripture, what kept me is that every time I showed up here, you were here.”

“We have no right or justification to kill one another on social media, especially when you don’t know,” he said. “And if we’re going to be saints, if we’re really going to move into the things God has, let’s love one another."

What are your thoughts on how Bishop Eddie Lon dealt with his struggles?
