Deitrick Haddon, minister, Gospel singer and one of the Executive Producers of the Oxygen docu-series “Preachers of L.A.” says he was shocked that his show received criticism from Bishop T.D. Jakes recently.
Jakes, the senior pastor of The Potter’s House megachurch in Dallas, Texas, wanted to make sure his congregation knew that he is not using their financial contributions on personal gain after the first episode of the controversial show aired.
“Now, I know you been watching that junk on TV. I want to tell you right now, not one dime of what you’re sowing right now will buy my suit. I want you to know my car is paid for,” Jakes told his congregation Sunday, according to EEW magazine reports. “I want you to know I got my house on my own. I want you to know I’m not bling-blinging. I am not shake and bake. I had money when I came to Dallas and I plan to have some when I leave.”
Haddon reacted to Jakes’ criticism on the radio station PRAISE 102.5, where he admitted his shock.
“I have the absolute utmost respect for Bishop TD Jakes and what he represents. I considered him one of our generals in this generation,” Haddon said. “I was a bit taken back and shocked when I saw his view on the show, being that he’s a forefather in unorthodox, unconventional methods of sharing the Gospel, whether it be through MegaFest or partnering with comedians or Oprah.”
Haddon’s statements came after Jakes rebuked the spirit that caused people to think that financial contributions should go into preachers’ pockets.
