Bishop Jakes Fervently Attacked The Preachers of LA [video]

Do You Agree or Disagree?

Do You Agree or Disagree?Bishop Jakes attacked the reality show, “The Preachers of L.A.” as he called for the offering and tithes in his church. He called the show junk.

Oxygen may have snagged the attention of 1.1 million viewers for the premiere of the controversial reality show, “The Preachers Of L.A.,” but Bishop Jakes isn’t one of the admirers. Bishop T. D. Jakes, of “The Potter’s House” in Dallas, Texas, is one of the most influential men in America. Even though according to Jakes the show has fouled out, the records prove that many others thought it was a homerun.

The show circles the lives of six Christian ministers; three bishops and three pastors. The show did take some harsh hits on social media from disapproving viewers but it also established a definite following.

These extravagant pastors seem to relish in the power of their cars, houses, jewelry and status causing the Mega church Pastor to speak out. He is best friends with one of the Bishops, Noel Jones, but that didn’t stop him from speaking his mind.

On the morning of Sunday, October 13, Jakes while at his church, fervently attacked the show and their characters as he was addressing the time of giving. He said to his audience that he knows some of them have been watching that junk on television, referencing “The Preachers of L.A.,” and begin to differentiate himself and his ministry from that of the show.

He went on to tell them that he wanted to stop right then and let them know that not one dime of what he was asking them to give was for the intention of buying his suit. He said his car is paid for and he got his house on his own. The Bishop said he is not blinging and is not a shake and bake pastor. He told them he had money when he got to Dallas and plans to have money when he leaves.

He said he has sold enough books and produced enough movies and doesn’t need their money to pay for his suit or anything else. He said the devil is a lie because he had stuff when he got there. He told them they did not buy what he has and he began to rebuke that spirit in Jesus’ name.

He said the members who have been with him can check his track record. Whenever he said he was going to do something, he did it. When he took an offering to buy something, they did it. When it was time to purchase the land they have, they bought it and when they said they were building a school, they built it. He went a step further and said when we wanted to pay for this church; we did it and burned the mortgage.

The mega pastor said you don’t do business like that being a slimy, shake and bake pastor. His church went crazy and burst into loud cheering.

Jakes then told himself to shut up but couldn’t before declaring to the people, “Let the work that I have done speak for me.” He said this ministry is good ground. Kenyans drink water because of this place. The Nairobi hospital functions because of the work we do.

He continued his rant with, “We are going to build the Kingdom of God like we’ve always built the Kingdom of God. I’m not from L.A. I’m from Dallas. He said his members know he operates in integrity whatever they have said they were going to do they have done it. His work will speak for him. You are sowing on good ground in this ministry.

I don’t need you to buy my car, I got this. I’m a grown man dog. We’re sowing into the Kingdom of God. We’ve got things to do that matter and I don’t have time for that other stuff. We have a kingdom to build. I’ve got this.”

The church celebrated as he made it clear that “The Potter’s House” is a mega ministry focused on mega care not Mega stuff.

The Bishop condemned the preachers of L.A. for building empires for themselves but instructed his church that not their mission they are going to continue building the Kingdom of God like they have always done.

These preachers from Los Angeles are not shy one bit about their love for the finer things in life. They said it’s their desire for people to see what God has blessed them with. They are living luxurious lives like that of many mainstream rappers and other celebrities.

Do you agree or disagree with the Bishop? Check out the video below and then catch “The Preachers of L.A.” reality show on Oxygen Wednesday night at 10 o’clock to cast your vote.

    Why can’t the leader is a church be wealthy? Its OK for a CEO, rapper, politician, pro athlete to be wealthy. Nice cars and houses are not carnal. I have it why can’t my pastor have it. He has a huge responsibility. Tithes are used to pay church employees salaries, utilities, missions, TV, build churches and water wells in 3rd world countries etc. We get blessed ourselves when we pay our tithes. It’s in the bible. I’m not losing when I pay my tithes I’m gaining. TD is wealthy now. He doesn’t need the church to pay him. I’m sure when he started he received a salary from the church just like the LA guys..

    I agree with Bishop Jakes. If the Preaches of LA wanted to uplift the kingdom of God. Why did the put the focus on their wordly goods?

    So true he is not from LA, but Dallas, during the same as the Preachers feature on Oxygen. He had to say something to the people to keep their money coming in. If waht he say’s is true that he is a “GROWN MAN DOG”
    why not say no offering that SUNDAY. The people eyes are open but yet blind, sick in body and spirit and definitely being pimp. As an ordain preacher i would like to say if his ‘FOLLOWERS” want to continue to give their hard earn money away so let it be.
