Bishop T.D. Jakes was recently interviewed by HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont-Hill, expressing his beliefs on the black church’s stance on homosexuality and interaction with the LGBT community.

“I think that it’s going to be diverse from church to church. Every church has a different opinion on the issue and every gay person is different,” Jakes said. When asked specifcially about where he stands on homosexuality, the pastor said his thinking has “evolved and is evolving.”

He also expressed that the government should protect everyone’s right to choose their faith as well as their opinions including those about faith and lifestyles.

Jakes faced criticism after the interview, with one critic calling his responses “intentionally ambiguous” and another calling his stance “murky.”

    Mr. Jakes, as leader of his ministry and the Potter’s church, talks eloquently about the Word of God, but seems to be socially neutral and non committal on the unrighteousness of homosexuality.

    He seems to be walking instead the walk of “social correctness”…so as to respect the FREEDOM of rights of those, President Obama, that claim that the homosexual lifestyle is right, a right, in their own eyes.

    Mr. Jakes respects this FREEDOM because it is his first love.

    He worships the same FREEDOM that the homosexuals do, but in his case it is to be free to do his religion.

    This FREEDOM that both worship dictates that it is RIGHT, a right, to be free to worship ANY ‘god’ as per one’s self-justification.

    How can Mr. Jake speak against the sin of homosexuality when he himself embraces the sin of freedom to worship any god ( religious liberty).

    Once, some people accused the Lord Jesus Christ of being a demon when he cast out a demon. But the Lord Jesus Christ said that satan cannot cast out satan for his house would fall.

    Mr. Jakes worships the same freedom as do the homosexuals.

    Mr. Jakes worships the way of satan, which confesses that it is right to embrace the “taken freedom” to justify “good and evil” in one’s own eyes, for one’s own wisdom and desires.

    Mr. Jake is as a virgin whose oil vessel is empty and who is using the name of Christ as a ‘lamp’ that will soon burn out…for the Lord Jesus Christ will say ” I do not know you, workers of lawlessness”.

    The Lord Jesus Christ said to worship ONLY the One Lord your Creator and Him Alone to SERVE in obedience and love, love for HIM first and foremost and love for, to do GOOD according to the One Truth, to the fellow man.

    Very soon, the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the One Creator, will return, as a thief in man’s eyes, to rule the earth in obedience and power as the ONE KING according to the Will of ‘I AM’ and NOT according to man’s first love for “his freedom”, for his desire to serve and magnify oneself (XES).

    …and man will weep and clench his teeth in intense anger when his freedom will be no more.

    The Lord Jesus Christ said to walk in his steps and to suffer the same.

    The Lord Jesus Christ said to repent and to serve Only Him, the One True Way.

    TD Jakes…FREEDOM, the Overarching System (the ‘god of fortresses’?) that Protects Unique Nuances.

    Mr. Jakes recently stated …

    …”…Once you begin to understand that democracy, that a republic actually, is designed to be an overarching system to protect our unique nuances, then we no longer look to public policy to reflect biblical ethics.”

    ….”The church should have the right to have its own convictions and values; if you don’t like those convictions and values and you totally disagree with it, don’t try to change my house, move into your own … and find somebody who gets what you get about faith.”

    It is clear that Mr. Jakes believes in, defends, and glorifies the righteousness of FREEDOM of Self-Rights….which in this discussion revolves around freedom of sexual lifestyle and religious freedom.

    He has very clearly justified in his eyes the “goodness” of the democratic (self-ruling) system, outlining that it acts as the “overarching system”, ie the authority above all other authorities, that protects the nuances , the differences in the variety and preferences of personal beliefs, whether they be sexual or religious.

    In other words, this “ overarching” acts as the ‘god of (above) all fortresses’.

    It is written in Daniel, that the last king of the north will glorify and advance his “god of fortresses”.

    What is the one belief, amongst all nations, peoples, religions, lifestyles, that is common to all?

    What one belief is embraced, desired, and glorified by the small and the great, by the rich and the poor, by the free (employers) and by the bondmen ( employees)?

    What is the one belief that is marked as a sign of allegiance on everyone’s forehead and hand?

    Is it not the love for FREEDOM…for freedom of self-rights, freedom of self-religion, freedom of self-happiness, freedom of sexual lifestyle?

    Mr. Jakes has clearly shown that he places this FREEDOM as the overarching way of life above all other beliefs, thus subsequently placing the Son of the One Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ, below this “FREEDOM” and consequentially categorizing HIM to be of EQUAL validity to ‘other gods’.

    This FREEDOM dictates that it is RIGHT, a right, to be free to worship ANY ‘god’ as per one’s self-justified desires, establishing this to be “good” in one’s own eyes.

    BUT the One Creator said that man is not to worship any other gods. In other words HE said that man is NOT FREE to worship other gods, warning man that if he were to do so the judgement and penalty for this taken-freedom, for this disobedience, would be death.

    The Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the One Creator, said the we are to worship ONLY the One Lord your Creator God and HIM Alone to serve in obedience and love, love for HIM first and foremost and love for, to do GOOD according to the One True Way, to the fellow man.

    Very soon, the Lord Jesus Christ will return, as a thief in man’s eyes, to rule the earth in obedience and power as the ONE KING according to the Will of ‘I AM’ and NOT according to man’s first love for “his overarching freedom “, for his desire to serve and magnify oneself (XES).

    …and man will weep and clench his teeth in intense anger when his freedom will be no more

    …and the Lord Jesus Christ will say, to those that hypocritically and theologically claim “biblical ethics” in His Name, that “ I do not know you, workers of lawlessness”.

    The Lord Jesus Christ said to repent and to serve Only Him, for He is the One True Way of Life.

    We read the old testement and the new testement and now we have the other testement saying its okay for men and women to sleep together, racism killing black men, ministers living larger than life and 40% of the people in American are living in povery and your talking about public shaming. If all the above are not ashame why should anyone else. Your selling this like a sales man. How can a man that is not ordained lay hands on you and you fall out. In all the books I read is it or is it not commendation for same sex. Was Sodom and gamora made up?
