We at musicnewsweekly.com deeply apologize to the family, friends, congregation and Pastor Hezekiah Walker, for allowing ourselves to be pawns of a totally false story that was confirmed by mediatakeout.com . As the founder, I am deeply hurt of the lack of integrity and respect I have allowed to come through Music News Weekly against Pastor Walker. I was given the opportunity to discuss this matter directly with Pastor Walker and offer my sincere apologies for allowing such a terrible thing to take place. In doing so, it was clear to see the strength of god in the middle of total evil.

Pastor Walker, in total wholeness, accepted my apologies. For those that donít understand how powerful that is, let me offer a deeper look at what this man has suffered because of this story. Pastor Walker is man who built a reputation of solid integrity and respect, worked very hard for all that he has, and inspires many through song and word. A man who speaks to uplift and does so with his own actions. But, one story, which was derived most likely from one sick individual, almost caused destruction to all that he has built. A great many people are familiar with Pastor Walker in all that he truthfully represents. Thanks to a young lady within his church named Nicollette, I was able to dig deeper to find what everyone else already new. Pastor Walker is a HETEROSEXUAL MALE who was the chosen victim of total stupidity on behalf of many.
As for myself, through the shame that goes with the territory, express the fact that I am very apologetic to all. I find it very troubling that this fictional story caught my attention and that of other media outlets, but the Pastor Walker program dedicated to influencing gang members from Bloods & Crips to turn in their guns went unheard. I now see this as a blessing and opportunity to actually tell the story of a man and some of the great things about him. We will do a profile story on Pastor Hezekiah Walker and let the world read about his real life.

This is a good lesson at the painful expense of someone's life, family and career that we as saints should not run with the news of anyone whether we know them or not, to run with such news and what we need to do is PRAY. Pray for the world, church, governments, etc. It will wind up that we have prayed for the entire world. So let us all start this day to pray for the world. Jesus is coming back very, very, very soon. And don't take for granted that gossiping is not that 1 sin that could lead us into HELL.

After reading the original source of the story, I can see why Music News Weekly went with it, as it sounds like it was checked out, including a quote from a member of his congregation, along with basing the source of the story in the Walkers' divorce proceedings. The bottom line here is that the story is still developing, and the only info we have now is basically anecdotal and unconfirmed, both regarding the original story and its alleged refutation, which came from a spokesperson for Pastor Walker. Mrs. Walker has not been interviewed to either confirm or deny the story.

I was much relieved and thanked God for the TRUTH, it only shows that true men and women of God, doing His work are under serious attacks by the enemies of God! "No weapon formed against me will prosper"

It's kind of difficult to trust the validity of the response from the "founder" of music news weekly, especially when his grammer/spelling is not up to par. If the author of that particular posted comment is truly the "founder" of music news weekly, why not just say you're going to publish a retraction in your next issue. I think it is reprehensible for a so-called professional publication entity to be that irresponsible to print a totally false claim, if it is indeed false. Furthermore, Hezekiah Walker should be the individual to respond to such accusations.

I'm aware that the homosexual community in churches are very tight-knit, protective of each other, and so-very down-low. I think that it's time for pastors/preachers struggling with issues of who they are to "come out of hiding" and be for real, so they can be delivered and set free by the power of God. Sin is sin, and it is not cute to God in any form. If you lust after someone, commit fornication, or adultery you have sinned against God and must REPENT or be LOST! If a man acts or talks effeminate than he should pray to become more like the man God ordained him to be from the beginning of time, and practice manly qualities and characteristics. If a manly man lusts for other men, he should repent and ask God to transform his heart. God will do it!

I received this email today from a friend that had forwarded it on like so many others. Instead of doing the same, my first thought was "I don't believe this garbage".
I decided to google "Hezekiah Walker" and try to find proof that this is a false rumor, so I can pass it on to the person that forwarded it to me. It is so sad how we as a people are so quick to participate in such trash instead of getting to the facts!

This is just another attack from Satan. When one stands up for Jesus and come through Christ bring people in the body then Satan will stop at nothing to bring a person down. As an active musician in the music ministry, I myself have experianced many of Satan's attacks but we must all remember what Jesus said: No Weapon Formed against us shall proper. Let us not look to the left or right, but rather let's stay focused on Jesus.

To the body of Christ,
How dare we accuse this brother of something that we know nothing about. We spread rumors about another brother in the Lord, rumors that we know nothing about(Accuser of the bretheren) that would be Satan's job. The bible says that they shall know us by our love. Love also covers, according to the bible. I ask you this question, my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, are you praying for our brother or are you acting as the pharisees that tried to kill Jesus and His reputation when they had no proof of wrong doing?

I totally agree. Satan is a liar and will attack the body of Christ any way he can. This kind of news travels fast on the internet. Let's see how fast the truth will travel. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Walker family for having to endure this kind of unwarranted attack. I only wish the person responsible for printing such an article would have taken a little time to verify the story. This was a true case of rushing to judgement. Have we not learned yet? Apologies are good but do not make up for the damage caused by acting your way through a situation rather than thinking your way through. Pastor Walker is truly a man of God. He showed this by his willingness to forgive.

Praise the Lord Saints,

I'm very proud to be called your Pastor. Please be assured that I would never do anything to bring shame to you or the body of Christ. The enemy seeks to steal, kill and destroy. Character assassination is one of the oldest weapons. People weak in mind believe the worst about everyone.

The Preacher is the tallest timber in the forest of humanity. The devil strategically plans destruction during the season of notoriety for he knows that if he waits and makes the tallest timber in the forest fall, the falling tree will destroy so many other smaller trees that stand close to it and look up to the tallest timber. We will give no place to the devil. As we continue to walk in Victory.

The Satanic E-Mail and rumor is a sure sign that this is our Year of Increase. If the enemy is going to get me, he must come better than a transvestite and a blonde wig. As for all of the haters, I m not taking a step down, but a step up. We will continue to preach against sin and promote Deliverance! I refuse to let this distract me so don't you become distracted. Always remember; never chase a lie, because the truth will prevail.

"And because God is the greatest power, we shall not be defeated."

P.S. I'm sure this email will not generate like the satanic e-mail, because people would rather hear a lie than the truth."

See you at the Tabernacle.

Love You,

Pastor Walker

There you go all....the devil knows the time is near so he will do anything to bring the people of God down. God bless you. Vanessa

If the link is no longer there, that tells us sometning about the source. Satan is a lier and the Father of lies. He does his dirt and then hides. I pray that Pastor Walker will be even stronger in his ministry from this. God does not waste time or trials and there is something for the church to learn from this so that we are not found repeating the sin of false accusations that could literally destroy a weaker saint.
