If you are have listened to Bishop T. D. Jakes sermons, you may recall how he has allegedly stated he is a minister who believe in Oneness, and not Trinity. However, we ran across this article at the KY Post, which claims Bishop T. D. Jakes admits he believes in the Trinity. As Christians, we are obligated to choose the right way or the wrong way and according to God's Word, it says, 'no man can serve to masters (Matthew 6:24).' Therefore, if we believe what is right, it is God's way and then, the other way other than the Trinity is of the Devil. We cannot believe Bishop T. D. Jakes suddenly believes in the Trinity, after so long of spreading his notion of Oneness, because that makes it seem like he is just trying to keep supporters on both sides in the Pentecostal church, whether they be Apostolic, COGIC, Full Gospel Baptist, AME or even Independent Holiness Churches.
We know God wants us as Christians to be straight forward, not seem like we are agree with right and wrong. Celebrity Bishop T. D. Jakes seems to be speaking confusing the masses and it is not fair to God nor the body of Christ. We are not dumb Christians, we know what Oneness means and we know what the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost means, the Trinity. Our minds are not to be twisted by anyone, even if they have much power, fame and fortune like celebrity preacher, Bishop T. D. Jakes. We do not want to follow a minister who claims to believe in one thing one moment, then another, the next, that is not being consistent in God's Kingdom, it is too confusing. Therefore, we would like to understand Bishop T. D. Jakes, but cannot comprehend him claiming to be believe in different theologies. God gave us this scripture, 'a false balance in abomination.' Therefore, if we are not balanced in our thinking, we are sinning and offend God. It is a false balance for any man or woman of God to say they believe in Oneness and the Trinity or just switch whenever it is convenient. When we went to carm.org, we found this definition reveals Oneness theology denies the Trinity. Therefore, Bishop T. D. Jakes must choose one way, which is correct, not both. It is impossible for him or any other minister to embrace both sides just to make their financial supporters happy. God expects us to not use alleged trickery in His Kingdom, just "so call" bridge the gap." That term "bridging the gap" has already gotten the church in trouble in the gospel music industry circle, one would be foolish to think they could bring the gap when it comes to the two separate beliefs of Oneness and the Trinity, because the Trinity is the only way, there is no such a thing as anything else in God's Kingdom.
Superstar T.D. Jakes makes a confession
- By TERRY MATTINGLY, Scripps Howard News Service
For more than a decade, Pentecostal Bishop T.D. Jakes has lived in the shadow of a Time magazine cover that asked, "Is this man the next Billy Graham?"
That was a loaded question, because of tensions behind the scenes between the multimedia Dallas superstar and many mainstream Christian leaders.
Now, this legendary preacher -- often listed as one of America's most powerful evangelicals -- has taken a big step toward convincing critics that he is, in fact, an evangelical. Jakes has, after years of rumors about private assurances, publicly affirmed that he believes in the Christian doctrine of the Trinity.
The Rev. Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church in Seattle asked the question directly, during the recent Elephant Room conference at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fla. This annual event brings together Christian leaders from a variety of backgrounds to discuss tough subjects. The interview transcript...Read article, here.
