TD Jakes: A Discourse on Race, Culture, and the Death of Civility

TD Jakes: A Discourse on Race, Culture, and the Death of Civility

Bishop TD Jakes, Interviews, Sermons, Thoughts
In recent weeks, the clash of race and culture made its way back into the headlines in the most ungracious of ways, signaling the death of civility in its wake. Whether it was the N-word blaring over the airwaves courtesy of Dr. Laura Schlesinger, the heated debate over a mosque too near “Ground Zero” for the comfort of some, or the revelation in the Pew Research Center’s report that 18 percent of Americans still believe the president to be Muslim – despite his outward declaration of Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior …. To my way of thinking, attacking public policy is fair game, but judging one’s redemption or “brand of Christianity” puts us all in very dicey waters.

Question Of The Day: Is It OK To Burn The Koran/Quran

Should we then burn the Bible every time someone who says they are C...

Terry Jones and Dove World Outreach Center to Continue With Rally

Christian News
[ad] Sources say that Terry Jones made the following qoute regarding the cancellation of his "burn the Koran Day": "We have firmly made up our mind, but at the same time, we are definitely praying about it," said Jones, who heads the Dove World Outreach Church in Gainesville, Fla., told CNN Tuesday. Jones said his group is "weighing the situation." Ok is it me or does it sound like Hog Wash to use the words "firmly, but, Praying and weighing" in the same sentence. If I am a firm yes or no, it typically means I am not weighing any other options. That is why you use the word FIRM. However God can change your mind, let's hope He uses this man's hands for His will to be done. Jones said his rally is aimed at the "radical" Muslims, not moderate Muslims. "Our message is a message of warni...
