Celebrity Preacher, Bishop T. D. Jakes, Internal and External Philosophy in the Black Church: What happened to preaching against sin?


After watching Bishop T. D. Jakes yesterday we learned a lot about having a changed mind.  During his sermon, he mentioned that old church were more about the external and that was teaching the church to look and dress holy.  Respectively, we have videos to prove that is untrue, simply because back in those days many preachers preached more about sin than today.   In our opinion, Bishop Jakes is a very good motivational speaker, getting people to come out of negative habits.  However, after hearing the testimonies of two women who died and went to hell, they both heard Jesus Christ tell them, He desired for today's church to go back to the old church.   Therefore, if it was more about the external, why does Jesus Christ prefer the old time church, more than today's church?

When we listened to the testimonies of Ministers Bernada Fernandez and Angelica Zambrano, they both mentioned Jesus does not like how the church is behaving in so many words and both of those video clips can be found on our videos page.  Therefore, the (black)church years ago was more about righteousness and living holy, which included both the internal and the external.


If you are 35 years or older, you can recall when preachers in the black church and even the white ministers used to preached against sin.   That's another subject Jesus Christ mentioned to Mary K Baxter.  He was angry that preachers were not preaching what He told them to, according His Word.  That testimony can also be heard on our videos page.   It is very scary to hear Bishop Jakes or any other preacher claim that preachers in the old time church used to focus more on the external, because if you will listen to the first Pentecostal preacher on our videos page, Apostle Johnnie Washington, you will find that to be false.   Apostle Washington and various other preachers preached against sin, holy living and also looking holy.   Yes, we are all for changing the mindset, but our souls must be cleansed from iniquity and we must reveal the light of Jesus Christ, after He has cleansed us from all unrighteousness.  We feel it all must be preached, for we are living in an age when little children are changing their sexual identity, something we did not see back in previous years.   We as children knew what we were and we did not question it neither did we request our parents to change our sexual identity.   We are living in a very dangerous age, too dangerous to not to be obedient to Jesus Christ request that we go back to the old way of having church and holy living. 


Of course, we cannot deny we feel motivated every time we listened to Bishop T. D. Jakes, but we cannot deny that he an alleged acquaintance of the president who condones gay marriage, which is against God's Word.   We wonder will we ever hear Bishop Jakes preach on these following scriptures?   Will we hear him admit his stance in the pulpit at The Potter's House or at any other church he preaches at?   Lastly, have souls been set free from homosexuality through the ministry of Bishop T.D. Jakes?  Years ago, the preachers of the black church were not afraid to publicly preach against homosexuality among other sins and they quoted these following scriptures, along with looking and dressing holy.

Note:  In all fairness during his sermon, Bishop Jakes did allegedly say, 'if you're not selling, keep it down.'   

Biblical Scriptures against Homosexuality 

  •  1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." 
  • Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." 
  • Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." 
  • Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."
