Beware Of Wolf In The Pulpit: Bishop T.D. Jakes

Galatians 1:6-9, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

Pastor Jenkins has been caught between grace and works, no doubt from hobnobbing with the Devil's neo-evangelical crowd who are destroying America's churches. It makes me sick seeing Dr. Jenkins promote and honor false prophet T.D. Jakes, who preaches another gospel. In the preceding heretical article by Pastor T.D. Jakes tells the reader to pray this prayer to get to Heaven:
Lord Jesus,
I ask you to come into my life, to be my Lord and Savior. I believe You died for
my sins and rose victorious over death. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. I
turn from my sin today, only to follow Jesus Christ all the days of my life. Lord, I
give you all of my pain, all of my hurts, all of my fears, and all of my infirmities.
Today, I receive total and complete healing in my life. Because of the shed Blood
of Jesus Christ, from this day forward, I am a new creation in Christ Jesus.
Thank you Lord!

That is blatant HERESY!!! Good night, T.D. Jakes didn't leave anything out! Why not include cleaning the kitchen sink while you're at it? I challenge you to show me anywhere in the inspired King James Bible where to get to Heaven, you must:
  1. Pray a prayer
  2. Ask Jesus to come into your life
  3. Ask Jesus to be your Lord
  4. Ask Jesus to forgive your sins
  5. Turn from your sins
  6. Follow Christ all the days of your life
  7. Tell Jesus that you are a new creation
Dear friend, you may do all those things and never be saved at all. You don't need to “ask” Jesus to forgive your sins, because He has already paid for everyone's sins with his blood (Romans 5:6-9). You don't need to invite Christ into your life. You don't need to ask Him to be the “Lord” of your life. You don't have to turn from your sins to be saved, which would be WORKS (Jonah 3:10).

The Gospel of John is God's Gospel tract according to John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” In the Gospel of John we find the word “BELIEVE” mentioned 88 times, but there is no mention of turning, repenting, following, surrendering, confessing, persevering or inviting to get to Heaven. What saith the Scripture? John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”

Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) gave a helpful illustration in one of his sermons about buttoning a dress shirt. Dr. Hutson said that repentance is like buttoning a shirt, if you get the first button wrong, then all the other buttons will be wrong too! You simply cannot trust the theology of a man who is wrong on repentance and God's plan of salvation. What saddens me is that T.D. Jakes has a strong influence upon millions of people worldwide. Pastor Jakes has given Bible studies for some large groups. Tragically, he is preaching an accursed counterfeit plan of salvation.

I do not approve of the ministries of Bishop T.D. Jakes or his buddy Pastor John K. Jenkins Sr.! I cannot bid those ungodly men Godspeed (2nd John 1:11). How can I when they are perverting the Gospel of free grace? Those deceived men need to read Michael P. Bowen's helpful book defending the Gospel: “I NEVER KNEW YOU.” What we believe matters. What preachers teach people matters! RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! I am being faithful to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3b).

Nothing is said in Paul's Gospel (which Galatians 1:12 says Paul received directly from Jesus Himself, and not from any man) about inviting Christ into your life, or following Him as your Lord, or turning away from sinful bad habits, or asking Him to do anything. We are taught in the Scriptures to simply BELIEVE THE GOOOD NEWS!!!

When the Apostle Peter preached the Gospel on the Day of Pentecost, the Bible says that 3,000 souls simply believed and were immediately and forever saved. Acts 2:41, “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.” Those 3,000 people gladly received the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen and were saved, and then they got water baptized afterwards as a public profession of their faith. Peter didn't tell them to do any of the unbiblical things that T.D. jakes requires, nor did Peter tell them to "be willing to turn away the way you've been living your life." Oh, how preachers need to get back to the Gospel.

One of my favorite Scriptures passages is found in Galatians 3:1-2, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?” I love that... THE HEARING OF FAITH! Dear reader, that is how you get saved. You hear the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ being preached, and you simply put your faith in that GOOD NEWS!!!

The Gospel means: “GOOD NEWS”!!! It is the GOOD NEWS that Jesus is the Christ, the only begotten Son of God, who died on a cross to pay our debt of sin, and that Jesus was buried, and then He physically resurrected from the dead three days later. If you know that you are a guilty sinner in God's sight (Romans 3:19-23; 1st John 1:8-10), and your only hope for Heaven is the GOOD NEWS of Christ crucified, buried and risen (1st Corinthians 15:1-4), then you are saved dear friend. We are saved by THE HEARING OF FAITH. That is, by placing your faith in the Gospel which you have heard. What Pastor John K. Jenkins and Bishop T.D. Jakes are preaching is of the Devil. Satan is a beautiful liar! The Devil's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again.

I love what Michael P. Bowen write in his helpful book: “I NEVER KNEW YOU”...
The gospel message is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. When we believe that Jesus died for us and came back to life three days later, He knows it — He knows all of your thoughts — and He knows the very instant that you believe His gospel message. The instant you believe His message, Jesus saves you. Time and time again we see in the bible that when people heard this message, they “believed.” When they believed, they were saved that very same instant. They did not pray prayers of salvation asking Jesus into their hearts. They did not commit their lives to the Lordship of Christ. They did not determine to follow Him all the days of their lives in obedience to His Lordship or to the practice of discipleship. They simply believed on Christ alone as their savior. 
It doesn’t matter how successful a ministry is, or how beautiful and satisfying their particular plan of salvation may be. If what they say about salvation does not match with what Christ said about salvation, their plan is counterfeit and falls under the label of an “accursed message.” Galatians 1:8-9 says, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” 
If you were to have asked Paul how to be saved, he would have told you the same thing he told the Philippian jailer in Acts 16:31: “...Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved...” And if you were to ask Jesus Christ how to be saved, He would tell you the same thing that He told Nicodemus in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus said “believe.”

Amen and amen! The preceding particular quote is regarding the counterfeit plan of salvation of Pastor Rick Warren, which Michael Bowen rightly exposes with the Bible as being false. 
The great need of the hour in America is DOCTRINALLY SOUND preaching preachers, done in a spirit of love! I am so sick of dead churches. Bishop T.D. Jakes has much zeal, which makes him an influential preacher, but unfortunately his zeal is NOT according to Bible knowledge...
Romans 10:2-4, “For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”
Sadly, T.D. Jakes is WRONG on God's simple plan of salvation. Jakes has embellished and added so many additional requirements to the Gospel, that no one could ever receive the new birth that way. What did Jesus say? John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” Why do these deadly neo-evangelicals pastors (like Jenkins and Jakes) keep telling us to do a bunch of things that the Bible doesn't teach? The reason is THE LOVE OF MONEY (1st Timothy 6:10-12). These sinister ministers of unrighteousness (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15) are afraid to preach a free grace Gospel, that differs from what 95% of mainstream evangelical infidel churches are preaching today, lest they be rejected and put outside the gate with Jesus.

Dr. Curtis Hutson (1934-1995) gets Bible repentance for salvation 100% correct...

Pastor Curtis Hutson: I Hate The Repent Of Sins HERESY!

(Pastor Curtis Hutson, 1975)

Please remember Jesus' warning in Matthew 7:13-14 that only a “few” people are going to Heaven, but “many” are on the highway to Hell, fire and brimstone. In verse15 Jesus tells us why, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Jesus blamed false prophets for leading many people into the Lake of Fire forever!!! With hundreds of millions of people worldwide now trusting in faith in Christ PLUS turning away from sins, sacraments, forsaking past sinful ways, following Christ as “Lord,” inviting Jesus into your life, running the race, counting the cost and paying the price, carrying your cross, persevering in holiness unto the end, living a lifestyle of repentance and a bunch of other theological garbage that rotten preachers keep telling us—it is not difficult to clearly understand why only a “few people are going to Heaven. The $64,000 question dear reader is: Have you been deceived?

You must decide who is right. You must choose to either follow Pastor John K. Jenkins Sr., who says in addition to faith you must, "be willing to turn away from the way you've been living your life," to get to Heaven; Or, you will choose to believe what the Bible teaches, which is that salvation is by faith alone in Jesus Christ. Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

You must decide who is right. You must choose to either follow Bishop T.D. Jakes, who says in addition to faith you must:
  1. Pray a prayer
  2. Ask Jesus to come into your life
  3. Ask Jesus to be your Lord
  4. Ask Jesus to forgive your sins
  5. Turn from your sins
  6. Follow Christ all the days of your life
  7. Tell Jesus that you are a new creation
Or, will you choose to believe the inspired King James Bible, which says in 1st Thessalonians 4:14, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. I don't see anything about giving up the old sinful life, do you? I don't see anything about making Jesus the Lord of your life, do you? I don't see anything about following Christ all the days of your life, do you? Nope!

Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.

Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work.

If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from?

The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU. 


Somebody's got to care and tell the truth! T.D. Jakes is helping the world go to Hell to burn forever with his counterfeit plan of salvation. Where's the free grace Gospel? Truth is only hate to those who hate THE TRUTH! God pity the preacher that the world don't hate! Amen! Respectfully, I am very disappointed in Bishop T.D. Jakes. Dear reader, eternity is a very long time to be wrong on the Gospel. Please don't be a fool, SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES. John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”
