Uh oh! Is this a case of Preacher beef’?

Despite all of the controversy surrounding the show’s release, “Preachers of LA” debuted on Oxygen last week and had one of the biggest series premieres for the network to date.

One naysayer that is not so happy about the show is Bishop T.D. Jakes. As the senior pastor of The Potter’s House megachurch in Dallas, Jakes went before his congregation on Sunday and called the show “junk.”

“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 Sunday, according to EEW 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,” he added.

“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,” he added.

The pastor made sure to separate himself from the six high-profile pastors by stating, “I’m not from L.A. I’m from Dallas!”

“Preachers of LA” has been under scrutiny from viewers who feel the show doesn’t paint predominately black churches in the best light.

A prominent Los Angeles pastor  has joined Jakes in criticizing the show.

“I’m totally against it,” Pastor William J. Smith of Saint Tabernacle Church in L.A. told theGrio. “When you put the church in the category of all these other shows – though I don’t watch them, I don’t have time for that foolishness – it demeans the church. It brings it down and it takes away the value of why it’s here. That’s why the church is in the condition that it’s in. Because the church has, in a sense, aligned itself with themes of the world.”

Through all the adversity, “Preaches of LA” was still able to average 1.1 million viewers with its debut, according to Variety and Nielsen. That means, whether you like it or not, a lot folks are loving that “junk.”

  1. AfterJakes carnal ungodly movie, Jumping the Broom where the very first scene was a girl in the bed after fornicating then praying for a husband and after he featured at his 2013 Mega-Fest New Age pagan promoter, her all road lead to God teacher and Oprah is now promoting Deepok Chopra and not the Bible., Jakes should shut his hypocritical big mouth up! He too has gone Hollywood and lost tons of credibility among discerning folks.

  2. Grant Dalton, patron du dfi no-zlandais, laisserait les Italiens se dbattre sur le plan juridique, gaspillant moins dnergie. Et si le jury reconna?t le bien-fond de la rclamation conjointe, Dalton pourrait gagner sur les deux tableaux, puisquil empocherait aussi un point par le simple fait de stre prsent hier soir sur le plan deau et davoir termin le parcours. Dans le cas contraire, Bertelli senfoncerait encore un plus dans une interminable guerre juridique.

    Did anyone else notice that on Nov. 13th episode the son of one of the pastors was put in charge of the music at the 2pm worship service. He sang and played a song that I was singing along with. He then told his father that he wrote it!!!!!!! I hear it on the radio. Maybe he wrote the arrangement but not the song. Really made me mad. Anyone else????

    No bling bling? I seen that rolex with diamonds around it….I thought it was made by tv johnny. Ofcourse none of “today” offerings gonna pay for those suits, cars and houses. its soo much money stacked that he doesnt even have to touch offerings from 2 yrears ago. I’m not saying not to look nice, i’m just saying that when yu move the poeple who “give ” the most to the front rows, it seems like a concert and the the highest ticket prices get the best seats.The way you teach the word is great…one of the best but beyond that……..

    How can TD Faker complain about the show and say I don’t need your money but yet you see the give online scrolling across the screen and got the nerve to say donation of $50.00 if you text as if you have 49.50 you can forget about it. You see men giving people envelopes to put money inside. You are right TD Faker who paid for that ugly purple plaid suit you have on. When he was saying that he should have told the TV people to take the giving part off the screen. He has more security around him than President Obama.

  6. Has anyone seen the movie trailer for this new documentary entitled “Contradiction”, it asks the question is there a correlation between “High Praise and Low Productivity in the Black Community.”

  7. Jakes has a talk show no matter how popular u seam to be. Or clam to be It still hard for a rich man to get to heaven. My pastor feed thousand and thousand of people in my area give them clothes and places to stay. If you ask me Jakes hustle is getting exposed. And he had to say something these preachers are full of it

  8. Well I have a question, if TD jakes is talking about it, how did he get a talk show? and when have you ever known a bishop to have a talk show??? I grew up in detroit my minister fed the poor, and helped young people get off of drugs, and she help alcoholics, she does not have a Talk show or a Reality SHow. So why Is TD jakes talking.. ???? what is his talk show about.

  9. THe show is truly a bunch foolishness, and most of them are about what they have, their cars their homes, which has nothing to do with GOd!, GOD said I will build my house upon a ROCK, not on Reality TV,,, for Minister’s and pastors, and these men who call themselves Bishops, when did they become Bishops, and they are not helping there communities, they are not out there on those, streets passing out food, they are not out there helping Our poor people, or our poor young folks,

    they are not helping anyone get an education, they haven’t open up any Out- reached programs,
    so what is the point in the show, but I do not feed into that foolishness, and I really would like it if they would remove the show, period. its really not helping anyone.

    I see the that “God pimp” Jakes is in his feelings because his “hustle” is being exposed. “Dream selling” is a racket called religion. And he hates that the curtian has been pulled. But cheer up Bishop “God pimp” no one has EVER gone broke betting on the stupidity of Americans. Just asks the GOP.

  11. YES!!! REAL Preachers steppin up and setting the record straight. T.D. Jakes has to be one of the most respected preachers in the country, so what he says about this should hold a LOT of weight. He (unlike the preachers in the show) is respected and NOT viewed as the bling bling pimped out preacher. The show will hurt the ones who are doing it the right way. There are some. More should step up and rebuke. If enough people step up, who knows maybe it can affect the show at some point where it can be pulled fromt he air. Reduce this crazy people watching it.
