Bishop T.D. Jakes recently took to the pulpit to speak out against the new Oxygen docu-series Preachers of L.A.
Jakes, the pastor of The Potter’s House megachurch in Dallas, Texas, wanted to make sure his congregation knew that he is not using their financial contributions on personal gain after the first episode of the controversial show aired.
Jakes called the show junk on Sunday and went on to rebuke the spirit that caused people to think that financial contributions should go into preachers’ pockets.
“Now, I know you been watching that junk on TV. I want to tell you right now, not one dime of what you’re sowing right now will buy my suit. I want you to know my car is paid for,” Jakes told his congregation according to EWW Magazine. “I want you to know I got my house on my own. I want you to know I’m not bling-blinging. I am not shake and bake. I had money when I came to Dallas and I plan to have some when I leave.”
Jakes added,”You did not buy what I got. I had it when I came here. You know I had it when I came here. The devil is a lie. I have sold enough books and produced enough movies. I don’t need your offering to pay for this little slimy suit. So I rebuke that spirit in the name of Jesus Christ.”
The Potter’s House pastor also told his congregation that his message of prosperity is about giving back and not taking.
“The people who have been here a while can go through my track record and prove when I said something, I did it. When we went after something, we bought it,” Jakes said. “When we wanted the land, we paid for it. When we wanted the school, we built it. When we went after this church we burned the mortgage on this church. You don’t do that kind of business being shake and bake and slimy and—shut up.”
Jakes continued, “So let the work I’ve done speak for me. You are sowing into good ground. And the 300 families that are employed in this ministry eat from this ministry, work in this ministry, and help us to produce the excellence that we do. The natives all over Kenya drink water because of this ministry. And the hospital in Nairobi survives because of this ministry.”
Although Jakes didn’t mention Preachers of L.A he made sure he told his congregation, “I’m not from L.A. I’m from Dallas!”
