UNBIBLICAL STATEMENTS FROM EDDIE LONG
"God says the only way people can see me is through my people. They have been looking for God and He can't be seen. Didn't Jesus say, 'that you are gods?' You are gods with a little 'g'. Don't you understand that you are mighty? Don't you know that you are a king? If Elohim (gods) could only get you to act like El (God)." / "I don't have to have somebody tell me that Sunday I preached. I looked in the mirror and said to myself, 'You preached!' Then I gave myself an offering." / "You have been saved too long to be broke!" (Eddie Long, TBN, Praise-A-Thon, March 29, 2004)
