I have received emails and questions about this case and I stand believing Bishop is innocent....not proven guilty. I have been reviewing this process and how the light has been placed on Bishop for shining so brightly. The focus began with his Bentley and the worldly possessions. The questions arose .....was he reporting his taxes accurately? When it was confirmed he reported accordingly the media got silent. If they are concerned about where the donations Bishop received went now......... what will they do when they see all of God's glory?
I can only think about the tragedies that occurred when we were too slow to come to our leaders defense. I think about how that quote resonates in my heart about Malcolm X. "That it was too much power for one black man." How has each leader been brought down? When we become divided and stop protecting the leaders God has sent us we lose. The church has been and will be under attack and we must prepare and learn from this.
I think about how when conspiracy theories surface that we need to truly evaluate them and know where the media coverage is coming from. Have we really dissected why these charges have surfaced? Have we really evaluated that just maybe the church has had too much influence in the political arena and the worlds view on homosexuality is being threatened. That just maybe the man of God stood on the word and that he is truly simply under attack. That just maybe people are tired of being forced to believe homosexuality is the norm. Maybe what is truly on trial here is not Bishop at all.
I stand believing the Body of Christ must see to it that Bishop is innocent for he has not been proven guilty. We must protect his children for they are the purest of the involved parties but is anyone thinking of them? I can hear his children crying out from the earth, praying that God must turn this around for their father. So it is important to keep it in the court room, giving each party their day to present their evidence and give Justice a fair opportunity!
