Why I Love T. D. Jakes

I love TV preachers. I guess it’s because I got saved listening to one of them that I like them so much. I love to just turn on the Christian TV channel and see what’s on.

“How can you say that?” you ask.
“Aren’t you concerned about their theology?” you cry in indignation.
You see, this is a pastime I call “gleaning.” Walk through, find what’s there, eat the wheat kernels and spit out the chaff.

There’s lot less chaff than you’d think.

There’s a place called that hosts shows (TV and radio) from Focus on the Family, Chuck Swindoll, Jack Hayford, Beth Moore, and lot of others. Those four I’ve mentioned are virtually chaff-free.

I saw Joel Osteen for the first time the other day. You know what he said?
Think about God. Give God preference in your life.
Not much chaff, there, despite what I’d heard about him.

One of my favorites is T. D. Jakes. I tell you, if you listen to that man, you’ll come away believing that God can do ANYTHING. It’s amazing how much power he thinks God has. He’s almost got me convinced.
