If she allowed him to do it, so be it. Just because she is 87 years old, she knows right from wrong. Old people nor children are stupid although most people think they are. I believe she knew what she was doing, just because things didn't go the way she wished, now they are going to jail.

tai woods, you sound real stupid. even if she knew what was going on this is not the only person he's done this to and not the only case against him. he has several cases against him besides these.(this i know for a fact, nobody told me or i didn' get this off the internet). i knew along time ago when someone i knew went to the church. he was a crook then and he is a crook now. check the records before you comment. the sad part about it is he conned other people into his life of crime. he needs to spend eternity in mens central jail in the gay module and let them screw him like he's done other people.

by the way i know your name is tai wade and not woods, but you sound like someone who is living in the deep woods and has lost touch with the real world.

Bessie Moore is the victim in all of this. It is a terrible shame every day she is even associated with this scandal!! The defendants'atty. plead Moore's case strongly to the court. It was a sad excuse for a preliminary hearing though (for the Deputy DA, who has no case based on these charges). While Ms. Moore remains in custody, Trevino, who is out on bail, and Dowd were clearly the authors of confusion.WHAT DID DOWD and TREVINO do with the money from the loans??? Food for thought...

Bishop Long, with all due respect, I used to feel the same way that you do. However, Bishop Dowd has done a lot of wrongful things to a LOT of people. Maybe you are not aware of all of the stuff that he has done, but some of us are. Maybe if you knew some of the facts you wouldn't feel the way that you do. Maybe you should get to know some of the facts before you speak on this one!

and i still say that i will stand by him. i know the facts better than some people thinks. and i know more than i am willing to say. and i know although no saint he still helped alot of people he gave to alot of people. and why i will never judge him or kill him off is because like david with saul, i identified that God once used him

it is my belief that the truth will be revealed and Dowd will be vedicated.as i said before. i know he is no saint and i know he has his ways. i know more about him than im comfortable with. but i also know that he has helped alot of people. so to kill him off, no id rather take the david attitude toward saul. i identified that God once used him

What ever Mr. Man! I know you too! And that's all I have to say about that. And what I want to know is, who ordained all of yall weird Bishops in your circle? And how do you become a Bishop with 10 to 20 members of these so called churches? Now I was trying to be nice, but you really need to just cut it out Mr. Man! With this kind of behavior, how in the world will any of the sinners ever get saved?!

IT IS A SHAME HOW THE PASTORS, BISHOPS, APOSTLE ARE USING GOD NAME TO GET PEOPLE MONEY.ESPECIALLY THE LITTLE OLD LADIES. GOD IS GOING TO GET EVERY ONE OF THEM. MOST OF THESE PEOPLE MADE THEMSELVES PASTORS,BISHOP, ELDERS, APOSTLE. THE BIBLE SAY THAT WE WILL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUIT. TAKE THE CASE OF DEREK A RIMSON LIBERTY CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST...PLACED THERE IN 2005 BY BISHOP CHARLES E BLAKE, WEST ANGELES CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST. DEREK RAN ALL OF THE OLD SAINTS AWAY AND STOLE 1.6 MILLIONS DOLLARS FROM THE CHURCH PROPERTY,STOLE ALL FO THE CHURCH EQUIPMENT/FURNITURE ECT....

BISHOP BLAKE PROMISE TO MEET WITH US AND SAVE OUR CHURCH..THE FIRST AND LAST MEETING WAS MARCH 3, 2008..TO DATE WE HAVE NOT HEARD FROM BLAKE. NOW HE IS SELLING THE CHURCH WE ARE TOLD TO PASTOR CRAIG LOWE FROM ST. JOHN POWERHOUSE CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST. LIBERTY PROPERTY WAS DEBT FREE. WHY HAVEN'T THE POLICE LOCKED UP DEREK A RIMSON? WHY DON'T BISHOP CHARLES BLAKE DO HIS JOB RIGHT BY THE PEOPLE WHO PAID FOR THAT PROPERTY? WHERE IS GOD IN ALL OF THIS SADNESS? AND WE WONDER WHY THE SINNERS DON'T WANT TO COME TO OUR CHURCH? JUST LOOK AT THE LEADERS THEY ARE LIARS AND THTHIEVES,FORNICATOR?????LET US MAKE SOME NOISE ABOUT THIS ONE...ALL THEY WANT IS MONEY AND MORE MONEY WHY DON'T THEY TAKE SOME OF THE MILLIONS AND CLEAN UP SKID ROW? THE BIBLE SAID THAT WE AARE TO HELP THE POOR THEY LOOK OVER THE POOR. THEY COULD NOT CARE LESS ABOUT A SOUL....SO BEFORE THAT OTHER BISHOP START DEFENDING LEROY DOWD???WHAT ARE YOU DOING...YOU DONOT HELP PEOPLE BY STEALING FROM THEM. JUST REMEMBER WE ALL HAVE TO STAND BEFORE CHRIST ONE DAY SAVED OR UNSAVED..AND I JUST KNOW THAT A LOT OF UNSAVED PEOPLE WILL PROBABLY GET TO HEAVEN BEFORE THE BISHOPS, APOSTLE, PREACHERS, WITH THEIR LYING SELF. THIS IS INSANE...BUT THE BIBLE SAID THAT THIS WOULD HAPPEN SO THAT IS WHY IT IS TIME FOR EVERYBODY TO READ YOUR BIBLE FOR YOURSELF. IF YUOU DONOT SEE GOD IN THE PREACHING, TEACHING, MUSIC, GET OUT OF THERE..STUDY FOR YOURSELF, TAKE YOUR MONEY AND GO AND HELP SOME NEEDY PERSON..EVERYWHERE IN THE BIBLE YOU FINDS JESUS AND THE DECIPLES HELPING SOMEONE IN NEED..THEY DID NOT POCKET THE MONEY FOR THEMSELVES THEY WERE ALL ABOUT OTHERS..WHEN YOU GIVE TO THE POOR YOU LEND TO GOD AND WHEN YOU LEND TO GOD BELIDVE ME U WILL GET YOURS..WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS..STUDY, STUDY AND THEN STUDY SOME MORE..PRAY,

If you know that Dowd has known the victom for 20+ years, then you must know him personally! Which means, you probably know about some of the other people that he has scammed! So save this drama OK. Cut it out! It's time for his secrets to be unvailed! You must think the readers are stupid. Ray Charles can see that you are a friend of Dowd's! Question is, "Are you an accomplice?"
<quoted text>
Its funny how everyone is so quick to judge!! My question to all you self confident people is this, "When it is your judgement day what will GOD say to you"? Just a question for thought. Neither here nor there do I have an opinion about Bishop Dowd but I will say it is a sad day for another man to judge another!!!!

you know me and you really knowing me is two diffrent things im not the elder bishop e.b long and i do believe last time i checked i had a little more than 20 or 30 members. and as far as who ordained me. 12 men, Bishops consecrated me. men of virtue and stature. i can not be reponsible for the doings of the entire spritual movement for yes it does have many flaws in it which is why i am no longer apart of that circle of preachers. i just believe in know that at some point God used him thats why i wont touch him. and as far as being a Bishop you need look in bible and tell me how many member timothy had when they made him a bishop and further more i was man enough not to hide behind a screen name. BE A MAN or woman and tell us who you are.
