TD Jakes Made Paula White A Star So She Bought Him A Bentley
Posted by Job on August 3, 2007
“Her career got a megaboost when she met Bishop T.D. Jakes, pastor of the Dallas megachurch, the Potter’s House. Jakes, who is black, helped catapult White to superstardom – particularly among black women – when he invited her to speak at his Woman Thou Art Loosed Conference in 2000. She launched her television ministry a year later. Today, White is one of the most popular preachers on Black Entertainment Television and appears on several other networks including Spike TV and Trinity Broadcasting … The ministries took in $39.9 million in 2006, according to an audit of Without Walls and Paula White Ministries released in June by an independent Clearwater accounting firm. About $28.6 million helped promote the church’s programs, conferences and outreach efforts, the audit said. Other expenses covered management and fundraising. White’s salary was not detailed, but her publicist says she has multiple streams of income outside the ministry. And for his 50th birthday in June, White sent Jakes a black convertible Bentley. It was intended to be a quiet gift, White said, but an overzealous member of Jakes’ ministry shouted out the news at the retail show. “Some people thought ‘Why would you do that?’ ” White later explained, saying that Jakes is her spiritual father. “I thought, ‘Well, why wouldn’t I?’ That’s not even an option.””
As far as the “Well, why wouldn’t I?” question, Paula White has clearly forgotten Proverb 22:6, which says “He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.” We are supposed to GIVE FOOD, CLOTHING, SHELTER, MEDICINE, LEGAL AND POLITICAL ADVOCACY, AND THE GOSPEL to the poor, not Bentleys to the rich. Then again, White’s sex and glamor driven “ministry” is so unscriptural that Proverb 22:6 is just one of many things that she ignores.
