Bishop Eddie Long & New Birth held Watch Night Service on New Year’s Eve and boy did he have a few words to get off this chest.  During the service the Bishop graced the pulpit and sent out a message that had some folks scratching their heads.

During his sermon he preached on the message that “God cares more about your future than he does your past.”  Now, mind you this is coming from a man who has “allegedly” slept with men (some underaged) while “married“.  See the footage below.

So I’m just gonna assume he trying to tell folks to stop worrying about his “sexual allegations” with men & just move on & forget it huh….hmmmm oh okay…Eddie!

I’m not the biggest church boy in the world but I do know a few things about the word of God.  So my question is does God indeed care more about your future than your past?  Or does God care about both just as equal? Also, does God ever forget what you have done in the past?

I would like to hear some of your opinions on what some of you think about this. Also, keep in mind none of us are “saints” (including myself).   Please share your thoughts in the comment section below & be respectful of one another.

Note: This is a no judgment zone!

    The answer to all your questions are yes, yes and yes in that order.
    After seeing the ad for Bishop Eddie Long’s watchnight service, I know about as much about his ministry as I did before, which is nothing. I can say that his statement that God is more about our future than our past is accurate. This is backed up by Psalm 103:11-12~For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. However, there is a catch. Now look closely at verse 11. Do you see where God has placed a condition on this promise? He does that to all the really good ones and FYI, they’ll all really good ones. Pastors and lay persons alike want to go around talking about how they’re leaning on the promises but they want to completely overlook their part of the deal. See with this particular promise, the deal is. if I fear the Lord, He will then, and only then, remove my transgressions from me. Thus making Him all about where He is taking us today and into the future and not holding up our past to us as a reminder of what we have done wrong. Yet, if we do not fear God, this promise is null and void.

      Thanks for your comment. So are you also saying that God does “forget” what you did in the past. Now, I know he “forgives” but does he “forget”?

        As a simple mom I can only relate that the Bible states that when one truly repents to the Lord and asks for forgiveness, that our sins are then “cast into the sea of forgetfulness”. Mentioned here in Micah 7:19: “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea and here in Hebrews 8:12 it states, For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” It looks like God makes up His mind to forget. I hope this answers your question.
