ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM: T.D. JAKES AND PAULA WHITE

Apprising Ministries continues our coverage of the dung droppings in the Elephant Room 2.

It didn’t get off to a very good start yesterday as two of my colleagues were immediately threatened with arrest as you’ll see for yourself in Chris Rosebrough And Erin Benziger Not Allowed Into Elephant Room 2.

Now it should be noted that heretical Word Faith mogul T.D. Jakes reportedly affirmed he believed in the Trinity. Tevin Wax, who was live blogging bromance ER2 noted the following exchange between New Calvinist Mark Driscoll and the WF prosperity preacher:

Driscoll: We all would agree that in the nature of God there is mystery. But within that, for you, Bishop Jakes, the issue is one God manifesting Himself successively in three ways? Or one God existing eternally in three persons? What is your understanding now? Which one?

Jakes: I believe the latter one is where I stand today. One God – Three Persons. I am not crazy about the word persons though. You describe “manifestations” as modalist, but I describe it as Pauline. For God was manifest in the flesh. Paul is not a modalist, but he doesn’t think it’s robbery to say manifest in the flesh. Maybe it’s semantics, but Paul says this. (Online source)

Resisting the urge to wrestle with the serpent, suffice to say Paul used manifest in the singular; he didn’t write manifestations, plural. From where I stand Jakes wants that language so that he doesn’t offend the modalists who make up a large part of his financial base.

That’s why I wrote this the other day T.D. Jakes Is Heretical Concerning Modalism Whether He Believes It Or Not. Leaving that, another Elephant in the Room is Jakes’ relationship with whacked WF flake Pastrix Paula White and other outrageously man-centered fellow WF heretics on the Trinity Blasphemy Broadcasting Network.

Below is a clip that I made from TBN’s Praise the Lord program 9/1/11, which T.D. Jakes hosted with his wife. They were promoting their Woman Thou Art Loosed 2011 apostasia-palooza. Well surprise, surprise, it was hosted by the Lakewood Church of WF preacher Joel Osteen, which is why I put together Megachurch Pastors Joel Osteen And T.D. Jakes Unite And Why You Should Care.

You watch, if there’s an ER3 don’t be surprised to see ol’ smilin’ Joel invited. On this TBN program Jakes had the three WF pastrixes making up the WTAL lineup. Pastrix Cindy Trimm, Pastrix Sheryl Brady, and Pastrix Paula White.

Now watch for yourself as Jakes introduces Pastrix Paula White. a rebel against the Word of God, as “this tremendous woman of God” whom he calls “pastor extraordinaire”:

The other thing I’m excited about tonight and really, really, really, glad to have is this tremendous woman of God. Who I feel silly trying to introduce her because everybody in the world knows her.

If you don’t know this woman, you don’t have a TV. You don’t have a cell phone, you don’t have a computer, you haven’t been anywhere. She is a pastor extraordinaire, she is a life coach, she is an author in her own rights.

She is a woman of integrity that God is using in a very, very, unique way; not only in Church Without Walls there in Tampa, Florida, but throughout America, and around the world.

Would you welcome, Dr. Paula White. (applause) We are glad to have you. We love you. We appreciate you.

You’ll hear from her very own mouth as Pastrix White tells T.D.Jakes is her “spiritual father” and mentor:

It’s my honor… Well, first I want to say what an honor it is to be with the two of you. In life I believe that, um, Henry Drummond said that we are all mosaics of the men in our life—the people in our lives—and that we become a part of those we interact with.

A large part of who I am—the development, the cultivation—the staying on a track, the maturing [in my life] is, is, due to the people that I have the privilege to sit with [here]—that I have been able to call my spiritual father and mother for almost 23 years.

I adore, admire, love, and [respect you]…

This is rotten fruit of T.D. Jakes…hold on, before it’s done. it’s going to get quite odoriferous in the ER2…
