This week, Pastor Creflo Dollar (pictured) went out of his way to stand up for an â€œanonymousâ€ friend and â€œbrother in the Lordâ€ whose members are leaving his church in droves because he made a mistake.Â Â He argued that those who judge the pastor harshly are being self-righteous and judgmental and that they should stand behind this pastor during his time of difficulty.
Many believe that Pastor Dollar was speaking about Bishop Eddie Long.
â€œI donâ€™t know what it is with the church. When you have a wreck you expect for God to forgive you and everyone else. Donâ€™t let the preacher have a wreck now,â€ Dollar said. â€œThen you become self-righteous and you become judgmental and youâ€™re gonna leave the preacher for his wreck when you done had more wrecks. That preacherâ€™s still anointed to do what he was called to do. He just had a wreck. The blood will take care of his issue just like it will take care of yours.â€
Pastor Dollar then went out of his way to make it clear that members from his friendâ€™s church are not welcome to join the church headed by him, the World Changers Church International:
â€œIf youâ€™re from that church … and you trying to join here, I donâ€™t want you to join here,â€ Dollar said. â€œYou need to go and join where you supposed to be. I donâ€™t want you here. That is my friend, that is my brother in the Lord.â€
