Since Team DefCon as of late has been accurately zeroing in on the spectacularly blasphemous spiritual caricature commonly known as T.D. Jakes I thought I’d take a moment to backlink to a few of my own pieces on this walking, talking, idol factory for the prayerful edification of DefCon’s readership.
From my piece entitled “Deceivers”:
T. D. Jakesgrew up in a Oneness Pentecostal denomination which denies the essential Christian doctrine of the Trinity [The Oneness Pentecostal denomination was declared a heresy by the Assemblies of God when it took organizational form in 1917]. When asked by Christian leaders to clarify if he believes in the Trinity [As defined in the Athanasian Creed] he will not clear up this matter. He refuses to give a clear answer as to what he means by “manifestations” when referring to the Trinity.
From my piece entitled “T.D. Jakes is a Sabellian/Modalist Heretic“:
It seems that some of my recent postsexposing the truth about T.D. Jakes have struck a nerve with one Dr. Pamela Y. O’Guinn. By her own report, and in violation of scripture, Dr. O’Guinn is a self-proclaimed “pastor/minister”and is clearly someone who blindly follows – and gladly prostrates herself before – the deceitful wolf in sheep’s clothing T.D. Jakes. In the midst of her confession of blind adoration and perverse man-worship of “The Bishop” the deranged doctor even goes so far in her fevered high-noon fantasies as to compare Jakes with Christ Himself, replete with crucifixion imagery no less! I must say that I’ve rarely seen such a shameless display of spiritual harlotry in all of my days.
From my piece entitled “Exposing Error: Oneness Pentecostalism“:
The above sounds like a strong statement and a serious charge that’s been leveled against the Oneness Pentecostal cult, yet it is the unvarnished truth. As some of my limited readership may recall I posted a brief series on the antics of Oneness Pentecostal heretic T.D. Jakes during October ’07,however that series didn’t provide as much detail on the manifold errors of the Oneness Pentecostal cult as it focused on the arch-deceiver Jakes himself.
In this brief post I’ll provide a brief list of Oneness Pentecostalism’s manifold doctrinal errors, and for more detailed information the reader can click the link at the beginning of this post and review CARM’s excellent resources on the cult.
The Oneness cultists, like T.D. Jakes, are no different from their spiritual “kissing cousins” in the LDS and JW camps; no one is “going to heaven” except for those who adhere to their particular cult’s brand of man-centered works righteousness soteriology, and when they are exposed to the blinding light of God’s truth as contained uniquely within the Holy Bible they will inevitably flee back toward the darkness or else show their true colors and ferociously attack like caged animals. But God Almighty in His sovereign providence has provided His true servants with more than enough spiritual weaponry to tear down every demonic stronghold that would exalt itself against the glorious knowledge of Jesus Christ:
Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. – Titus 1:9
But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: – Titus 2:1
If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. – 1 Tim 4:6
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. – Romans 10:2-3
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. – Romans 6:17
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready alwaysto give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: – 1 Peter 3:15
Maranatha Lord Jesus!
