Last week, Bishop T.D. Jakes spoke out against Oxygen’s new reality series “Preachers of LA.” Along with calling the show “junk,” he denounced the minsters of the faith-based program — Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Noel Jones, Pastor Wayne Chaney, Bishop Ron Gibson, Pastor Jay Haizlip and Bishop Clarence McClendon —  for showing off their flashy and worldly lifestyles.

“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,” he told the morning service at his Potters House church.

“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 responded to Jakes’ criticism during an interview with Atlanta’s PRAISE 102.5 radio. The standout cast member said he was “shocked” to hear about the bishop’s disapproval.

“I have the absolute utmost respect for Bishop TD Jakes and what he represents. I considered him one of our generals in this generation,” he said. “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 sharing the Gospel, whether it be through MegaFest or partnering with comedians or Oprah.”

Haddon, who is currently in the middle of a sexting scandal, chose not to address his nude photos floating around the Internet.

    Pimps in the Pulpits, They have always and probably will always be . The business of Church has always prospered because of our attachments and tendency to believe a smooth talking orator without knowing GOD and asking GOD for wisdom.

    Misrepresenting the Kingdom of God and what he/our Heavenly Father-Jesus Christ son of the Living God. These guys look and acting like pimps and so are many others like them. God will deal with them and their mess.

    I actually don’t think this show is going to last long. However, I think TD Jakes is upset because why didn’t he think of the ideal first.

  4. TD Jakes; I think he “protests too much”. To insist so passionately about something not being true that people suspect the opposite of what you are saying…….. ~ from William Shakespeare

  5. Instead of worrying about what TD Jakes is thinking about you, you should be worrying about what the Father is thinking about you. And I would think that it ain’t much. All of you so called Preachers are shameful, sinful and all of you need to bring your nasty butts out of that pulpit and get in the pews because none of you are fit to be shepherds and instead are just sorry sheep in need of help from real men and women of God.

        your so right Karen, these guys give the bible and god a bad name. as the bible said in the last days such ones would slip in and lead many astray, and Jesus that many would say they did works in his name and he said I will tell them to get away from me you workers of lawlessness, which is what they are
