Apprising Ministries reminds you that when James MacDonald and Mark Driscoll opened the door for Word Faith mogul T.D. Jakes into mainstream evangelicalism via their Elephant Room 2 a whole lot more evil than they even realize is also going to come slithering into the heart of the visible church along with him.
Jakes isn’t a godly man to be admired, he is a rebel against the Word of God who regularly teaches and consorts with a whole host of fellow WF heretics, e.g. Elephant Room 2′s T.D. Jakes Praising Paul And Jan Crouch On TBN 7-10-12. Note, this is well after supposed repentance by Jakes from WF as implied by MacDonald.
Then there’s WF Pastrix Paula White: As Paul Is To Timothy, So T.D. Jakes Is To Me. Those who know the Bible, and their number continues to diminish, know that as a spiritual father Paul discipled this young pastor Timothy. Bottom line: What Paula White teaches, so does her mentor T.D. Jakes.
By the way, she made that statement at the big anniversary shindig celebrating T.D. Jakes’ “ministry” back in June. And who should also grace the red carpet at this event honoring heresy? James MacDonald:

The evidence shows that Jakes is still as deep into Word Faith prosperity preaching as it gets; e.g. in Elephant Room 2′s T.D. Jakes, Pastrix Paula White & His Upcoming Women Thou Art Loosed Conference this past October. WTAL once again featured a trio of heretics, White and WF pastrixes Cindy Trimm and Sheryl Brady.
Now we turn to the latest example of the type of teaching White received at the feet of her mentor T.D. Jakes. As I previously explained, e.g. in Southern Baptist David Jeremiah Praises “Vision God” Gave To TBN’s Paul Crouch, a classic piece of warped WF mythology is “the law of sowing and reaping,” i.e. giving money to their ministry.
You often hear them tell their flocks to “sow a seed” into their ministry in order that God is then obligated to return them more than they gave, as a “blessing.” For example, here’s White below preaching this for her spiritual father T.D. Jakes right at his Potter’s House:
Pastrix Paula White’s latest ministry email, which I received today, takes this one step lower by using what I see as emotional manipulation as she says:
We are committed to putting before Him an offering this season. A “Gratitude Seed” by faith! This is an extremely important and powerful seed for you…especially at this time in your life. This seed will do two things for you.
1. This seed will get God’s attention. Remember, God sits high and looks low. He is looking for faith on the earth. This seed will require strong faith.
2. This seed will be seen as a “Gratitude” offering. Gratitude always produces favor and favor will cause you to receive in a moment, more than some do in a lifetime! (source)
Well, I have news for pastrix White; the Christian already has God’s attention and there’s absolutely nothing we can do to get more of His attention. The Good Shepherd is always carefully watching over His precious sheep. These WF prosperity preachers like T.D. Jakes and his dutiful disciple Paula White simply show no shame.
After-all, White’s mentor T.D. Jakes himself already told us that for such as these Jesus is the product:
