Bishop Jakes brought the word at One Church L.A. on Sunday, the church where his daughter, Sarah Jakes is the first lady, and her husband Toure’ Roberts is the Pastor. After church, Bishop Jakes posted a photo of himself with jeans on, and a follower challenged the Bishop’s dress.
After the service, America’s Bishop posted the following message:
Want to thank One Church for a great service! Loved the atmosphere there. The presence of the Lord and the kindness of the people explain why Hollywood is buzzing about this young church and its rapid growth! Thanks@toureroberts and @sarahjakesrobert
Then a follower chimed in underneath the photo, and asked the Bishop isn’t he suppose to be setting an example, and that he was too old to be wearing ripped jeans. The Bishop responded by asking the follower to show him a scripture to back up his claim…. Well, we all know that there is no such scripture.
This started a debate underneath the post about if it’s okay for a pastor to wear jeans, but the Bishop, being a man of many words… Has posted an eye-opening statement under the post:
I wish we had this much passion for the murders in Chicago, or those who are suffering in our cities. When I make post about helping the needy I don’t hear from many of you at all. You all seem to know what Jesus would wear, but have no interest in what He would do! @art_vsz While you debate my jeans, tell em where you stand on women wearing make up, or female pastors. This kind of legalism is why so many frown on people of faith! In a word, get out of my closet and help the people in your cities! The homeless don’t care what any of us wear. Those suffering w cancer and disease don’t either. But you’ve spent your time arguing about something that is irrelevant! Most of the antagonist don’t even follow me anyway!
