T. D. Jakes, author of one of the most intriguingly titled religious books every written (the Lady, Her Lover, and Her Lord), has decided to give the Trinity another look see and has back away from his formerly modalistic stance on the oneness of God. That said, Jakes considers both view fully Christian. Hmmmm. What does that mean? This "pastor" once heralded by TIME magazine as perhaps the next Billy Graham, may be working the angles to stay in the good graces of Trinity confessing folks who carry and sell his books.... or, he may actually have undergone a conversion of sorts. Who knows?
If you have a penchant for the odd and an affection for The Potter's House and this dynamic individual, this may interest you. I will supply the link
to help you satisfy your thirst for knowledge in this but must confess that I have little affection for the "bishop" except some wicked curiosity. I do wish I had written a religious book with that title. But no cryin over spilt milk....
Jakes, Obama, Vanderbuilt University . . . and not ONE post, reflection, or meandering on Candlemas?! OUCH!
Is this guy considered the leader of the black Baptist church that other preachers are trying to emulate, or is he yet another loudmouth, fire breathing televangelist with limited appeal. In any case, we have seen empty Evangelical rhetoric before.
Please, much as I lament coming from Baptist stock.... Jakes is a oneness Pentecostal in background. I believe he spent some time in the Baptist church, but that's not where he landed.
Jakes likely remains a modalist. After his recent appearance on the Elephant Room, he stated that he 'preferred' the word manifestation to the word person when speaking of the Godhead.
Jakes is also a Word of Faith type, the "name it and claim it" type.
When I see a man in the pulpit explaining that he is humble, even pitiful, yet he wears expensive suits (another argument for vestments), and is known for fleecing the sheep outside his circle....
Outside his circle, he is known for fleecing sheep, I should have said.
The Theology of Glory in action: My glory!!
It is no surprise that Time magazine wrote an article praising this man for his heterodoxy. When is the last time you have ever seen a "mainstream" media magazine write a favorable article about an orthodox Christian?
