New Birth is having an Anniversary celebration but…you have to bring your own food!!!

August 17, 2012 by The ReadyWriter


I’m not lying Ceo family…New Birth Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga is celebrating their pastor (Eddie Long’s) 25th Pastoral Anniversary and they’re asking their members to “BYOF” – Bring Your Own Food!!!! I’ve underlined it in red on the flyer above for all to see the reference with their very own eyes.

The flyer advertising the event at New Birth Baptist lists ticket prices at $25 for adults and $10 for children. Yes and in addition to “bringing your own food”, they are also charging their members to enter the celebration as well.

This is a far cry from the lavish events New Birth have held in the past especially since the basis of Eddie Long’s teachings are on prosperity gospel.

New Birth was rocked by scandal last year after Bishop Eddie Long was forced to settle sexual misconduct lawsuits brought against him by five young men [click here and/or search Eddie Long in the search engine if you missed that].

When it’s not of God, it is yet BUT for a season!

      that’s because the main thing behind it is greed (gluttony)…they are easily brainwashed because money is the root of all evil….and these big time preachers constantly promise their idiotic followers prosperity and they believe it.

      @AppleBottom,
      It’s being held at the church so one has to assume that the mortgage has already been paid. It’s not like you’re renting an event hall and have to pay them. So WTF is the $25/$10 going for?

    He owes money out his ass (from all the lawsuits) so he have to do what he has to do to make up where he’s short and if that means charging his followers a fee to enter a fuckin room in the church then damnit that’s what he gotta do. and i’m sure the IRS is on his ass after everything came out. Plus he gotta keep FAKE WIFEY happy. This nigga stretched out with the drama.

    I have never in my life been invited to a BYOF event. Think about it. Your church might have to pitch in where everyone makes a dish for others to share but “BYOF” implies that you make your own food for just your family or yourself.
