Bishop TD Jakes, “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. 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. 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.”
Deitrick Haddon, “I have the absolute utmost respect for Bishop TD Jakes and what he represents. I considered him one of our generals in this generation. I was a bit taken back and shocked when I saw his view on the show, being that he’s a forefather in unorthodox, unconventional methods of spreading the Gospel, whether it be through MegaFest or partnering with comedians or Oprah … to reach the un-churched. I was suprised when I saw the conclusions that he came to. I was hoping that someone would sit him down and let him see the show. I respect Bishop Jakes and love his ministry. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Your opinions do not change facts.”
