      Lessons for Church Leaders

      Here is a story about Bishop Eddie Long, facing accusations of sexual coercion, who is considered "anointed" by his congregants. Scholars say his rise has followed a familiar pattern, with worshipers fiercely devoted to a powerful leader.

      Over a period of time Bishop Eddie Long has consolidated powers to himself and made the church board members mere `yes' men. As the church leader Bishop Eddie Long grew in popularity he lost accountability. And he used his celebrity status for manipulating funds of the church. More details of the report can be read on: http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/09/28/long.new.birth/index.html?hpt=C1
      The issue is under investigation and we may know the exact status in coming days.

      The rise and fall of Bishop Eddie Long is applicable to all Church leaders who should be careful about not getting trapped into power and politics. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
