Bishop Eddie Long sat down with Steve Harvey to discuss his notorius sex abuse scandal that erupted just five years ago.
In 2010, Bishop Long was accused of coercing several of his church’s under ages boys into sexual relationships. Throughout the controversial process, Long continued to deny the allegations and eventually settled out of court.
His decision to settle out of court was received poorly by many, but the Bishop explains it was the only way for him to move on.
“In life you got to figure, am I going to win the battle? Or am I going to win the war?” he described, defending his choice.
Even though Eddie seemingly got legalities out of the way, the war was not over. He had to do the difficult work of trying to rebuild his reputation and his church.
At one point, the Bishop told his congregation that he contemplated suicide.
“The shouts of your haters seem to be louder and more multiplied than the people who are with you,” he told Steve Harvey, “To try to see an end, and if you saw a light, it was another train coming.”
