Bishop T.D. Jakes took to the pulpit at his megachurch in Dallas, Texas during Sunday service to rebuke the new Oxygen docu-series ‘Preachers of L.A.’ in the name of the Beamer, the Benz and the Bentley dealership.
The senior pastor of The Potter’s House distanced himself from the controversial show by assuring his flock that they are “sowing into good ground” with their tithes and offerings.
“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 EEW online 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.”
“You did not buy what I got. I had it when I came here. You know I had it when I came here,” he continued. “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.”
‘Preachers of LA’ chronicles the lives of six high-profile spiritual figures and the daily “struggles and triumphs” they encounter. If you watched the debut episode you already know that Bishop Clarence McClendon, who lives in a $7 million mansion, is the Bible-thumping version of Tela:
I’m so tired of ballin’ because it’s too many devils on my dick. God knows my heart and status at the bank.
