I’ve said a lot about this couple in the past. Even earlier today!. So here’s the deal, given the nature of this incident I’m not going to say much here. I’m just going to let those who have not read the prior posts read them in the “related posts” section below. Many of us have been warning people for a long time that their “teach me how to love you” stuff was not of God and now we see the rotten fruit. In the mist of separation and Weeks is beating on Bynum. Yea, I always knew he was a punk! But as I said earlier today, he’s really exceeded my expectations of how terrible he really his. And although there is much I don’t like about Juanita Bynum, she didn’t deserve to be beaten like that. Thomas Weeks should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The same recommendation I give for all punks and thugs that assault people.
I would be remiss if I were not honest in saying they are both false teachers, practitioners of the false prosperity doctrine and marketing lust to saints, but maybe the failure of what some of us call the Bynum-Weeks Corp. will help those who were duped by them in the past to move to sound doctrine.
2 Timothy 3:1-9 (New King James Version)
Who knew “manifest to all” in their regard would be like this!
update 8/23/2007 3:26PM: For now I’ll just put updates in this thread continually about this as they come. Covina found us a copy of the police report. Basically it says the cop met Bynum at the hospital, where she told him that Weeks “pushed her down, kicked and stomped her”. A bellman named John pulled him off her. She didn’t want to wait for the cops to take pictures, but her sister named Tina Culpepper took pictures of the injuries and said she’d e-mail copies to police. The bellman named John left the scene before police could speak with him. Considering how police usually don’t move fast if the incident is over and the person is already at the hospital, by the time they tried to speak with “John”, he probably either asked to go home because he’d had a wild day, or his shift might have been up by the time they got to his job to question him.
update 8/23/2007 3:58PM: Warrants issued for evangelist Bynum’s husband
Atlanta Police say arrest warrants have been issued for the husband of popular Pentecostal evangelist Juanita Bynum, who was allegedly beaten by him at a hotel earlier this week.
Thomas W. Weeks III is charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of terrorist threats against Bynum, according to police spokesman Ronald Campbell. The spokesman said Weeks, a minister, had not been arrested.
Campbell said she was “bruised up and battered,” and had “purple bruising around her neck and upper torso.”
Police found out about the fray from a staff member at Piedmont Hospital, where Bynum was taken for a checkup.
Bynum apparently left the hospital before police could take photos of her cuts and bruises. Her sister, Tina Culpepper, took some snapshots and later handed them over to police.
Campbell said he was uncertain whether this was a first-time incident of domestic violence between the couple.
Uh, all you who claim this is a manufactured story, note that Bynum didn’t try and call the police, the hospital did. Her reluctance to call and her wanting to get away before police could further investigate the bruises is consistent the with response of a battered spouse, just my very unprofessional opinion. Yea they’ve done a lot to market themselves, something I’ve always noted and continue to rebuke them for (that among other aspects of their false doctrine), but this does not have any of the markings of a manufactured event. In time, the bellman will be questioned. Bynum needs a friend, not a groupie, who can help her find sound doctrine. Lord willing, her ears will be open to receive it.
update 8/23/2007 8:17PM: See the video Juanita Bynum Files Charges. Thomas Weeks a Fugitive! Does anyone need any more proof that the prosperity doctrine is false and it’s time to work towards eternal instead of earthly gain? The Lord Jesus died and rose again, for those who trust in Him to have access to eternal riches, not temporal earthly things, Luke 12:29-34.
update 8/24/2007 12:36AM: The AJC has updated their article to note that:
Weeks also threatened Bynum’s life during the attack, police said. “Anytime you tell a person, ‘I’m going to kill you,’ that moves it up to a felony,” Campbell said.
He is expected to turn himself into police today (Friday).
One of Weeks’ attorneys says:
“He very much regrets what happened and said he’s sorry for what it’s worth,” Tesser said Thursday night.
Weeks loves his wife, Tesser said, and “he hopes he doesn’t wind up getting a divorce.”
The wife beaters always seem to feel sorry and claim love AFTER they stomp the woman and tell her they are going to kill them. Interesting how that seems to be their pattern of abuse.
My opinion, since neither of them seems to have a desire to seek out and reconcile with their first spouses and this is the 2nd marriage for them both. Maybe they should try and each stay alone till they might be able to do the best thing in reconciling with their first spouses, Mark 10:6-12.
update 8/24/2007 9:09AM: Weeks has turned himself in this morning. See the video of him along with stories about other Atlanta crime suspects and the local Atlanta weather here. The usual Atlanta AM news thug line-up, this time featuring a pulpit pimp!
update 8/24/2007 10:29AM: Why should Weeks and Bynum and NEVER married and why regardless of what their first spouses are doing should they remain single if they can’t reconcile with their first spouses? See 1 Corinthians 7:10-11. Remarriage is adultery, Mark 10:11-12. I’m not saying God does not forgive sin, adultery included, but if you care to live as the Lord commands, YOU’VE GOT TO BITE YOUR LIP AND FOLLOW SCRIPTURE. Certainly no man in remarriage should be in a role of church leadership. They are NOT blameless, Weeks is NOT the husband of one wife. And Bynum is not supposed to have rule over men in a church assembly. Only certain men are able to be church leaders, many can’t. See: 1 Timothy 3. And for anybody that thinks things changed for the “last days”. Guess what, when those words were written, the apostles also said they themselves were in the “last days”.
At least some of the people in his assembly are now walking away. Let’s pray they find sound doctrine.
update 8/27/2007 12:09AM: While some are starting to figure things out and walk away, this latest article shows that some never learn. It’s called idolatry. Some love that pimp more than God and don’t even know it. The man has a divorce, then an adulterous marriage, then is charged with beating wife #2 in the street (parking lot) and STILL some refuse to leave the pimp. I guess they’d compare the death threats to Moses and David having killed someone, however after Christ was resurrected, we see no such cases in scripture after the Holy Spirit falls on someone. None of the apostles or those with them ever did such foolishness.
If Weeks is caught with a bottle or drugs, he might be part of the elite group of pimps who successfully defy every standard given for a church leader and STILL have sheeple following them. See: 1 Timothy 3. I say Weeks has broken every standard except “wine” at this point.
