Juanita Bynum’s husband says the devil made him attack his wife

This congregation has to be one of the dumbest group of people on the planet.  I have no respect for any man who puts his hands on a woman period!!!!  I dont care if your a Bishop, Minister or the Pope. 

After choking, pushing his wife to the ground and stomping on her, Bishop Thomas Weeks  was in his church this past Sunday to face his congregation.  He explained to his flock that the devil caused him to attack his wife.  What is even more appualing is that the church welcomed him with open arms; clapping for him in show of support.  I tell you some of us are so heavenly bound that we are no earthly good.  I got that from my grandmother.  Everytime someone does something wrong in the church; its always the devil who made them do it.  

So lets assume the devil did make Weeks beat his wife down and threaten to kill her;  you still  need to be punished for that.  His ignorant congregation may have welcomed him back with open arms but I hope the law of the land punishes his butt.

 Some of his supporters have stated that the “Christian” thing to do is to forgive him; that everyone makes mistakes.  Some supporters are even saying that the public should not be so quick to judge and that ministers or human just like everyone else.  Like I stated before, so heavenly bound; no earthly good.

I am all for forgivness, but what this congregation needs to do is make this fool seek help from a professional, because you can’t tell me this is the first time he beat his wife.  He should not even had been allowed to enter the pulpit. 

To add insult to injury, this fool asked the congregation for donations to pay for his legal fees; and guess what?  They gave him money… dumb dumb dumb.  I know some of you may not like this post but I don’t care.  I have no respect for a man who beats a woman!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I agree with you 100%, everything such be
    forgiven but some things you need to accept
    consequences for.

  2. For a bishop to beat/abuse his wife he is and was never washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. Added to that his congregation becomes obligated to pay for his wrong doing and if it was anyone of them he would not have even visited them put by to pay their legal fees. God would have had to do it himself. We as humans need to wake up and stop the abuse and stop blaming on the devil,blame it on yourself.

  3. “Vengence is mine said the Lord and what is right I will pay”.
    Bishop Weeks will not go unpunished–believe that!

    He and all the other guilty bishops, pastors, and preachers need to submit to bibical authority. Bishop Weeks need to seek forgiveness from his wife first, go to God, get counseled and then be restored to the church.

    Regarding his bail; His has enough money to pay his own bail. This is what I call modern day prostitution; and guess what? In this case, the church is the buyer and Bishop Weeks is the prostitute.

    Again, he needs to sat down, but he want because he is all about the money; and he taught his church the same; and the congregation can not rise above there leader. Unless someone is willing to rebel, like Jesus Chris. Church, let’s stand up and be counted. If not we will not be counted in the end.

    God have mercy and correct your body; so we will began to look like you. AMEN!!!

  4. Yeah, I can’t believe this fool. He needs to suffer the consequences of his actions, so while his congregation may be able to forgive him that doesn’t mean a) that they should bank roll his defense b) that he can just go on like nothing ever happened.

    I think he needs to go to jail. This was a vicious attack, and he seems completely unrepentant.

  5. One more reason why I truly dislike all religions ever invented by man. Native the black church has been promoting ignorance for a very long time.

    They promote ignorance partially so that church officials can get away with unethical behavior. If Bishop Weeks congregation where serious about spirituality they strip weeks of his position and then make him earn it back after years of communnity service and good behavior.

  6. Wow, so many have so much to say. He who is w/out sin cast the first stone. Everyone maybe absolutely correct but, this does’nt negate God being God. Pray for Juanita Bynum the pesron,for Global Destiny’s church family who’s leaders are wounded. Especially pray for Thomas Weeks III, and believe that God can and will get the GLORY out of this. All of us are Outraged @ this, but when the dust settles and it will HE STILL HAS A SOUL!!!!!!!

    yours 2 serve

  7. People are constantly saying pray for Mr. Weeks. Let’s not judge Mr. Weeks. Let’s hope he gets help. What about his wife whom he stomped down in the parking lot! Where is the outpouring of concern and finances for her! Women in our society are not valued equally. If a globally recognized pastor beat down a weaker man in a hotel parking lot there would be outrage in the streets for justice for the beaten man, but since it is only his wife we don’t care as much. That’s women and men whom think that way! I find that more women publicly come to Mr. Weeks (who truly is weak his name is very fitting) defense than men. Why is that?

  8. KSKIP:

    AMEN AMEN AMEN. I am so tired of people blaming the devil on thei actions. The issue here is not the devil; but domestic violence. I don’t care what she said to him; it did not justify him stomping his wife into the ground!

  9. We have 2 live n 4giveness n order 2 have a successful life. If God b God an he is let him pass judgement. This is not a church issue but infact a world issue. Let’s not 4 get if we r not submitted 2 God we will submit 2 gods. There is a spirit that controls the atmospher and those that live w/in whether u believe it or not. So although u don’t want 2 hear it we must 4give. But we Do NOt have 2 agree neither except abuse @ any level from those who represent God. That’s why Juanita can 4give him, because u must practice what u preach. Now she’s living what she has preached sooo profoundly. She will soar by DIMENSIONS. The need of the many out way the need of the ONE.(Juanita Bynum) y2s

  10. I have known of Bishop weeks for quite some time and befor e I make any comment it’s very importrant to consider one’s self. Have you ever wronged anyone physically or verbally? Have you ever needed restoration and forgiveness? Has you marriage been perfect? As far as God is concerned all unrighteousness is Sin. No big Sin no little Sin we all need his help.
    With that said Bishop Weeks and his lovely wife are going through quite a bit. Please pray for them both that God would have his perfect will done in thier live’s.

  11. Some of the comments are really blowing my mind. It is so funny how we hide behind religion instead of talking about what the real issue is; DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. Cut the BS. We can sit around here all day long and talk about who isn’t perfect and quoting bible scriptures unil we are blue and purple in the face.; that is not the issue!

    Too often woman and sometimes men are used as punching bags and sometimes murdered because of their spuses inability to control their emotions and it has to stop.

    If you want to forgive Weeks, I have no problem with that, but he should not be in the pulpit until he gets mental help from a trained certified professional. How can he lead a group of people when he can’t control his own emotions or actions; and then blame it on the devil????? Complete BS and I am not buying it.

  12. Native Son:

    I’m not buying it either. Yes, forgiveness is important in the Christian faith, but what also is important is accountability for your actions. Especially if you are in a place of leadership within the church. Your title does not exclude you from disciplinary actions brought against you (legal or within the church).

    Who wants to belong to a church that refuses to discipline itself? The Catholic Church is still taking a hit for turning a blind eye or going easy on a small group of fathers who abused children. They lost many people from the church because of it. It doesn’t make Christians look appealing to non-believers when double standards exist, and it sets a bad example within the church.

    If your kid went out and severely beat up a defenseless kid would you punish them? Hopefully, yes and quickly. That doesn’t mean you don’t or can’t ever forgive them for doing it.

    If your child was a leader or popular in school, does that make a difference in whether or not you punish him/her? I hope not. If anything, they definitely should know better and should be held to higher standards than the average kid. Would you exept ‘The devil made me do it’ as a reason for their behavior?

    You can forgive a person for their actions and at the same time expect and demand that they take responsibility for any wrongs they have caused and pay the consequences. Whatever they are or however harsh they may be.

  13. With all due respect some of you sound like the pharisees standing before Jesus and the women who committed adultery. And oddly enough EVERYONE will have their place during the judgment some of you shouting throw the stones will be the same ones with blood on your hands at the judgement. Do you really know what brotherhood or Faithfulness is? Christ was battered the same way with people behind him shouting the same thing you people are for this man. And you scream these things to your self glorification an not because of righteousness. There is even greater symbolism in this matter then some of you can visualize without wisdom. Very few of you have real insight as to the underlying issue of this matter. And because of that the only difference between you and them, is God has not exposed YOUR dirt yet. But the word of God is the only REALNESS in this EARTH regardless as to how many of you say “leave scriptures out of this”. So all the marriage counselors out there, who are without sin who refuse to judge themselves with the same harshness as another, maybe you should pray for the healing of these people so that God can reveal his power in this matter.

  14. Cole: Please, save the bible studies for Bishop Weeks. It is 2007 and I am tired of people hiding behind bible scriptures and blaming the devil for everything.

    We are talking about domestic violence, it is real and in the black community we do not address it the way we should. You do not beat your wife, I don’t care who you are. what will ti take for us as a community and a group of people to understand that this is a learned behavior and if we don’t break the cycle, young boys and girls will grow up thinking that it is ok to beat your spouse.

    So if you want pray, pray that Weeks gets professional help, because you can believe this is not the first time he put his hands on a woman or vice versa.

    Here is what churches should be doing; my old church home Galiee Baptist Church in Suitland, MD; addressesing and confronting Domestic Violence as a social problem; not some devil made me do it BS….. Read this article:

    Condemning Violence From the Pulpit
    Project Aims to Give Voice to Domestic Issue Rarely Mentioned in Churches

  15. IT IS NOT ABOUT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR RELIGION, IT’S ABOUT PREACHER PIMPS AND THEIR MEGA CHURCHES “BISHOP” WEEKS SHOULD HAVE LOOKED INTO JUANITA BYNUM BACKGROUND IN HEMPSTEAD, NY BEFORE COMBINING REASORCES. HE WOULD HAVE HAD AN EYE OPENER! HE GOT WHAT HIS HANDS CALLED FOR AND NOW SHE IS GOING TO GET “PAID.” HER OWN MINISTRY AND A COUPLE OF BOY TOYS. THE FOOLS IN HIS “CHURCH” WILL BE THE ONES FOOTING THE BILL. HOW CAN ANYONE LAY UP IN CHURCH, KNOWING THEY ARE GOING HOME TO BEAT THEIR WIFE? WHEN MY WIFE BUGS ME ABOUT NOT GOING TO HER MEGA CHURCH, I JUST START TO RECITE THE LIST OF SCANDAL AND SHE LEAVES ME ALONE!
