It pains me to say this, but it was truly disappointing seeing Bishop T.D. Jakes on MSNBC helping to further the left’s lie that the election of Trump is horrible for America. Jakes said, “We are dealing with shock, grief over election outcome.”
Clearly, Jakes was complicit in helping MSNBC undermine Trump’s presidency by branding him an evil racist and sexist. MSNBC, which has no moral bottom, wanted to send minorities the message that they should be fearful of Trump and the angry white voters who elected him. These people are scum, folks.
Several black Christian leaders have joined the left in furthering the socialist-progressive agenda, allowing their mission to trump truth, facts, and even Jesus. For crying out loud, when you research the term “abuser of women,” Hillary’s picture is there. Her Democratic Party has a long history of racism against blacks: the KKK, Jim Crow laws, the bigotry of lowered expectations, Planned Parenthood founded for the purpose of black genocide, and so on.
And yet, MSNBC, Oprah, and other powerful blacks choose to ignore Hillary’s multiple crimes against women, blacks, and America. Instead, these evil leftists have launched an all-out assault on Trump to convince minorities that white Americans just elected Hitler.
I remember my 88-year-old preacher Dad saying to us as kids, “While you did not join the devil in committing sin, you held the devil’s coat.” Jakes’s language regarding the election of Trump is not as harsh as MSNBC’s and Oprah’s, but he is definitely holding their coats.
Publicly criticizing a man of God is awkward territory for me, folks. 1 Chronicles 16:22 says, “Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” I believe that Jakes is a man of God. Over the years, Bishop Jakes’s ministry has blessed me on numerous occasions.
Dishearteningly, Jakes’s behavior represents the baffling and disturbing disconnect I have seen in many black Christians between their politics and their faith. It appears that many black Christians have chosen the false gods of their racial bigotry and their loyalty to the Democratic Party over their commitment to Christ. I am not being provocative. I am simply stating the truth.
A black pastor’s wife – a relative of mine – claims to be devout. And yet her Christianity takes a back seat to Obama (his picture plastered all over her home) and her loyalty to the Democratic Party. How does she ignore Obama and the Democrats’ aggressive War on Christianity and anti-biblical platform?
Facts proving how Obama’s presidency and Democrat policies have harmed blacks only spark outrage in her, seemingly to the point of wanting to kill the messenger. Her zombie loyalty is impenetrable. She voted for Hillary, ignoring the fact that Hillary would have led the charge to further ban God from the public square, murder more black babies, and push through the anti-Christian LGBT agenda.
One could say, “This black pastor’s wife is simply a product of decades of the left demonizing Republicans.” Fine. But why is her mind so closed to hearing the truth? I am not one to run around talking about spiritual possession. However, I wonder. Is there a spirit of stupidity? Just kidding.
My black pastor’s wife relative is a brain-dead racist fool. However, high-profile black Christians such as Jakes and Tyler Perry, who should know better, are Hillary supporters/Democrat operatives. They have even adjusted their views to line up with the Democrats’ anti-biblical take on various issues. Tyler Perry joined the left in calling Georgians bigots for not wanting men to use women’s restrooms.
I heard an old Jakes sermon in which he preached against what he called “the spirit of lesbianism.” Now Jakes is furthering the Democrat narrative that gays are among the victimized groups threatened by Trump’s presidency.
As I said, it appears that some black Christians have decided that the Democratic Party’s platform trumps Jesus’s platform.
Not all black Christian leaders worship on bended knee the false gods of racial bigotry and loyalty to the Democratic Party. Though they are attacked as traitors and Uncle Toms, thank God that there are black pastors who stand on the word of God. They encourage blacks to vote for candidates who line up most with biblical principles – Pastor Mark Burns, Pastor Darrell Scott, Pastor Jesse Lee Peterson, and Bishop E.W. Jackson, to name a few.
I don’t know, folks. It is all so sad. All I know to do is to pray for Jakes, my black pastor’s wife relative, and other black Christians to abandon their blasphemous loyalty to skin color and the Democrats and return to their first love, Jesus Christ.
