Bishop T D Jakes speaks on justice and equality and the silence of the modern church as it pertains to issues based on race and equality.
The only problems as I see it is, that the MEGA church, has certainly been silent. New Bethel (the church I founded and pastor, which is a comparatively small church) has preached a spiritual, and salient message for years regarding these very important issues, including the issue of Black on Black crime, and how to address it and overcome it in our communities...through all of this, I have heard very little to nothing from the modern commercialized TV church. I guess when folk like Jamaal Bryant start speaking up, that is a signal that it is apripos to say something about the issues....
A friend of mine, who pastors a predominately White congregation, told me that if he preached a message of social justice and equality that his tithe income would suffer and his business revenues would decrease...That there were just certain topics that were not good for revenues. To me that is the most sad testament of the condition of the modern church. We value our revenues, more than we value truth, justice and liberation.
MUST SEE: This is one of the most profound interviews we've ever conducted with Bishop T.D. Jakes. Jakes talks about love, life and what he calls "the elephant in the room."Posted by CBN News on Tuesday, May 12, 2015
