According to the Christian Post, Bishop Jakes recently shared his thoughts regarding the show to his congregation, and his feelings were crystal clear.
Bishop Jakes referred to the show as “junk”, and he told his congregants that the money sown into his ministry didn’t pay for his wardrobe or any other luxuries.
“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 remarked, “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.”
For those that were not clear as to what Bishop Jakes was referencing, he stated, “I’m not from L.A. I’m from Dallas!”
His comments left Deitrick Haddon speechless. In an exclusive interview with Praise 102.5/102.9, Haddon, one of the stars of the show, stated, “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.”
