SAY IT ISN’T SO! My day has just been ruined seeing these pictures that was just emailed to me with BISHOP T.D. Jakes wearing a diamond stud earring in his left ear at his daughters wedding the other day. Friends of mine saw it live on Entertainment Tonight and was floored. You know, I hate to entertain rumors but this is no rumor at all! Bishop T.D. Jakes wears an earring!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY? WHAT? EXPLAIN MAN OF GOD! Explain. http://tdjenterprises.com/blog/?p=48
As a new resident of Dallas, TX I was really considering fellowshipping with the Potters House (I overlooked women clergy, women in pants, no prayer veils and the make up and jewelry) because the church does Baptise in Jesus Name and teach the Oneness Doctrine HOWEVER I am NOT DOWN with my MAN OF GOD wearing an earring (in or out the pulpit). I want an explanation. What do I tell my brothers in prison?? MY WITNESS will be destroyed if they came out of Prison and saw my pastor with an earring. Can we say 100% worldly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (why Lord WHY????) And to think, I just did a wonderful article a few months back on Bishop T.D. Jakes and the Potters House. Now I regret it. MEN and EARRINGS are NOT APOSTOLIC!
Would someone from the Potters House like to explain WHY Bishop Jakes wears an earring? Would you Bishop Jakes like to explain why you wear an earring? If its good for after church hours, should it not be good for the pulpit? How about when you are in the Baptismal Pool. Is it not good then too? How do you distinguish when you SHOULD and SHOULD NOT wear the earring? Help me to understand……please…I beg you!
1 John 2:15-17 (King James Version)
16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
UPDATE June 26 2008
Apparently the earrings have been photo-shopd out of the picture on Bishop Jakes Blog however there are plenty of comments that were left on his asking “wassup” with the diamond earring. NOW, if you google the post, it DOES NOT EXIST anymore…. it is obvious that Bishop Jakes is speaking to us all in silence letting us know that he see’s the “major rift” him wearing the earring has caused. Google http://tdjenterprises.com/blog/?p=48 for yourself. NO MORE PICS, NO MORE BLOG. Oh well. Thats that! This is as of 6/26/2008 at 6:51pm.
