The Black Church has historically been a source of hope and strength for the African American community.
Sad to here, it was positive. If MORE SO-CALLED CHRISTIANS had watched the show instead of dissing the man like so MANY do, then the ratings would have been up & his show could have stayed on the air.Very disappointing.
...or maybe, just maybe there were more "so-called Christians" that watched the show and simply didn't like it.Just a thought.
@Mike Walker, sounds like you were one of them "so-called" Christians. Real Christians like him.
Anonymous:I am not trying to pick a fight, but your last statement is seriously flawed. I can only guess you don't know any better (sorry if this sounds condescending). By stating "REAL CHRISTIANS LIKE HIM (meaning TD Jake)" you're practicing a foolish theology. It implies that anyone regardless of acts, admission of sin or believing Jesus died on the cross for us is void simply because they don't like TD JAKES?!?! The only person that should have the "Like" requirement is Jesus Christ. Even the 12 apostles weren't BFF's BUT THEY LOVED JESUS. So please don't base someones Christian walk on the "LIKE" or "DIS-LIKE" of TD Jakes. Christianity isn't Facebook. You can dislike some people and still be a Christian.
You can't rebuke me when your PROFILE PICTURE is a man with his BUTT in the air. Ridiculous!
I think I am chatting with a 10 year old. So because my butt is showing during a BACKFLIP I am not allowed to criticize your "ALL CHRISTIANS LOVE JAKE" theology?!?!I haven't seen the scripture that reads "thy shall not show thy hind parts while doing aerial tasks, lest you forfeit your right to rebuke". 1 hesitations 3:16I am just asking why and how liking Jakes is a Christian requirement.
@ Cop,LOL at 1 hesitations 3:16 LOL, ROFLOL!!!The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...
Might be on to something there
It's about scandal and money. Jakes was not outrageous!
Who cares. No "real" or "so-called" Christians should watch this man posing as a "so-called" Bishop, using Jesus as a product to make merchandise of itchy eared folks anyways. GET OUTTA HERE!!!
People like you don't support the Black community! In Harriet Tubman's day, you would've been one of the slaves runnin back to tell Massa the slaves were trying to escape! Donald Trump ain't got to do Black people in, the traitors and sell-outs are destroying the Black community!!
Agree Anonymous, Bishop Jakes have been nothing but positive for the community.
Look... enough your black crap nonsense. No need to soak in your vain imagination to inject if I were in Harriet Tubman's day, because I'm NOT! You can ride your freedom train all you want. Your train, my friend, will eventually crash and BURN, AND if you continue your foolishness, with you IN IT!.You and all sinful black freedom fighters will never know TRUE freedom, unless you are made free by the Son. Never will any of you know freedom according to the "Gospel of Harriet Turman". AND to your co-signer Ms Marsha, Jakes may do for the community, and even that's debatable, but this false teacher who refrain from telling black people the truth their real needs is just a motivational speaker who speak swelling words of vanity, to allure many through the flesh. ONLY WHAT YOU DO FOR CHRIST will last!GET OUTTA HERE!!!
@GET OUTTA DODGE, So....what DID YOU DO for Black History Month? I remember a while back I asked if your granddaughter only played with blue-eyed baby dolls.......and YOU DUCKED AND DODGED THE QUESTION! Then YOU had the nerve to whine that I was attacking you. Man to Man, I asked you a question. And you responded like a boy caught with his hand in the cookie jar!It's sad that Bishop Jake's gets so much flack...not from WHITE people...But he gets flack from you new-fashioned Blacks. ---House Negroes need not apply.--I think that will be my nickname here.
YOU back AGAIN. I'll tell you what I do for BLACK HISTORY MONTH...I listen to some good ole gospel by OLE GIRL SHIRLEY, and watch videos of Ole Girl, hucking and bucking, and skipping and flipping in her low cut SUNDAY SHINY DRESS about chitterlings, and greens and grits, and hog maws, and pig feet and hot water cornbread, and fat back, and kool-aid, and ham shanks. and lima beans..to the TUNE of "Hold My Mule", OKAY. Then I pray for sinners like you, the LORD lead you to a black church nearest YOU, the preacher preach MY MESSAGE to tell YOU that I..."Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him."And that I do not "Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.". These verses are in Proverbs 26:4,5. Look it up OKAY!GET OUTTA HERE...you SPIRITUAL COON!!!
No folly about a simple question. The folly is you refuse to answer and therefore you must be Guilty of selling out. And your other folly is KEEPING STEREOTYPES ALIVES! The stereotypes that Black folks fought hard to stop...And here you are making jokes about those stereotypes.It looks like you and your grandbaby had a fine ol' "WHITE" Christmas. Keep eating that white bread son..But as for me and my household, we can handle the dark wheat bread and the cornbread. It's more NUTRITIOUS anyway! Lay off the Bishop and it'll go easy for you.--No time for House Negroes--
You cant be serious about black stereotype. I mean...when you admit that about Ole Girl Shirley, and yourself SPIRITUAL COON), the black face jucking and jiving cutting up talking about watermelon and Nana pudding and Cole slaw and chicken feet and snoot and gizzard and Tata pie and singing don't drive my mama away. Then go to a black church nearest you to hear the preacher preach my message to you saying...But foolishness and unlearned questions avoid". 2 Tim 2:23.GET OUTTA HERE!!!
Don't RESENT...Just REPENT...Mr. Spiritual Coon...GET OUTTA HERE!!!
And about the "so-called" Bishop Jakes, he is a liar about the things of God. HE teaches false doctrine and preaches a false God that the THREE are manifestations, rather than persons. Jakes steals money from many OF the black folks in his congregation, these biblically illiterate folks, moved by his snake charm. HE is aligned with new aged ideology, thus his close ties to OPRAH the witch. HE is not saved, and no speaker of God pushing the gay agenda as he swishes around in his effeminate way, to get weak men to touch they "feminine" side. God made them MALE and FEMALE. This liar suggested in his men conference the Apostle JOHN MAY have been strange when he laid his head on Christ bosom. This weakling of a man even suggested David and Jonathan may have been homosexual. JAKES IS false on every way. And anyone who supports to defend Jakes denies the GOD OF THE BIBLE and lives only to satisfy the flesh and the things of this world.GETC OUTTA HERE!!!
These Networks could careless about TD Jakes positivity, how many souls he reaches, or his charisma. If you don't have the ratings for the advertisers YOU WILL GET CANCELLED.So relax followers of Jakes. He still has his churchHis movie companyAnd his most prized "PRODUCT" which he refered to as JESUS.
It's simple - Jakes is a fake. The world can see that.....thus the low ratings. It's the church folks who are fooled by him.
Miss Ann,TD Jakes will be fine. Whether we support him or not. The repeats will still earn him some $$$.Besides he is one of the many preachers in his time that has taken advantage of unsuspecting and non-discerning followers, while using the name of our LORD Jesus in vain (he one time stated that Jesus is [his] product – or something to the effect. YouTube has a clip).“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” (2 Peter 2:1-3)Jakes and all his contemporaries can NOT stand steadfastly and state the same words that Paul wrote to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 12:16-18 – “But be it so, I did not burden you… Did I make a gain of you by any of them whom I sent unto you?... Did Titus make a gain of you? walked we not in the same spirit? walked we not in the same steps?”).So there is nothing to see here. Let us get our bibles and get our “read” on.The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want…
I like and respect Jakes but that show was awful. It was difficult to watch, boring, lackluster. You name it...it was missing it. He seemed stifled, caged, under duress, out of his element... sorta had that whole Get out look going on. He needs to take it back to the potters house.
Ms. Ann, I don't know too much about T.D. Other than what I've seen on his cameos on other talk shows. I decided to give his show a chance and I caught maybe 3. He's very boring and so are his guest. It's been done to death through Oprah and other talk shows.
