Second Atlanta Bishop Involved In Sex Scandal

Another local Bishop may be facing allegations of commiting sex crimes against children.

The allegations surfaced two weeks ago, after an anonymous tip led the Dekalb County District Attorney’s office to Bishop Johnathan Alvarado. Alvarado is the head pastor of Total Grace Christian Center. Pastor Shaun King, worked closely with Bishop Alvarado at Total Grace. King has said he believes the allegations are true.  He says his heart goes out to the families affected by the Bishop’s actions.

Bishop Johnathan Alvarado was once the Minister of Music at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia. He founded Total Grace Christian Center in 1992.

    Well it looks like the apple does not fall far from the tree…This so called man of God was trained under Bishop Long and now he has his sex scandal to deal with…When are these grown men going to stick with grown women or the wives they took their vows with?This is sick behavior and it’s no wonder that men of god, has lost all credibility…I know I have never took them to be saints walking on earth, and I hope people are more careful with whom they entrust their children and themselves to…These people are men first, fight the same temptations that is out there waiting to trap the rest of us…What they should be doing, and i’m sure they were trained in their theology schools, is to not allow the doors to temptation to be open…If you’re counceling people of the opposite sex, have another female present to protect you and the councelee…

    What is going on in Atlanta with preachers and young boys? I know it’s not all of them but the last thing you would want to be in Atlanta is a preacher! Yesterday is gone, so you can no longer do something and sweep it under the carpet. Social media has given the Body of Christ much needed power to shine a bright light into some very dark areas. By the way you guys are very late with this story, maybe you should read http://www.PimpPreacher.com more often.

    To all who are commenting on the Men and Women of God be very sure you have your facts straight God is their judge. If this is true why waist time scandalizing the names of God’s leaders, why not pray for the hurting children the parents that intrusted their children in the care of their Pastor. And to other Pastors and Pastors wifes its time to pray not point fingers for Juddgement has now entered into the House of God . Its Prayer tim!!!!!
