Whatever you might think of Markus Bishop's spiritual abilities, his earthly abilities have always seemed clear.
The guy can collect money.
Bishop was once the pastor of Faith Christian Family Church. His church purchased a 10,000 square-foot, five-bedroom, six-bath home in an exclusive neighborhood - nowhere near the church. The home was so opulent that it came under scrutiny from the local property appraiser who said it should not count as a tax-exempt parsonage. Years of court battles followed but Bishop won every time and the case was eventually dropped.

However, Faith Christian fell on hard times and closed its doors. Bishop has since opened a new church, The Life Center, but the activities inside the center have led local officials like Sheriff Frank McKeithen to proclaim that Bishop is not running a church but "trying to get around the laws, and they're using the church to get there."

Markus Quin Bishop, 54, was arrested Tuesday and charged with delivering a controlled substance to a minor and felony battery. The charges stem from a Sept. 11 incident when Bishop and the minor were alone at his Fox Run Boulevard home, according to police. Bishop also was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Attorneys for Bishop said that because he is a longstanding member of the community, he should have a bond of $17,500. But during his first appearance Wednesday prosecutors argued Bishop's prior conviction for domestic battery demanded a larger bond, which was set at $35,000.

On Sept. 11, Bishop allegedly provided the minor with marijuana in an attempt to intoxicate her before professing his love and kissing her against her will, according to his arrest affidavit. The two were at Bishop's home alone when he offered marijuana to the minor before suggesting they go swimming, investigators with the Bay County Sheriff's Office reported.
"The victim/child said she was extremely 'high' but agreed," their report stated.
According to police reports, the minor became uncomfortable with Bishop's advances in the hot tub and exited, so he suggested they get in the pool. After moving from the hot tub to the pool, Bishop took a flotation device from the minor and placed his hands on her lower back, guiding her around the pool, investigators reported.
