Bishop T.D. Jakes and DeVon Franklin

While promoting their upcoming film “Miracles From Heaven,” Bishop T.D. Jakes and DeVon Franklin, who serve as producers for the film slated for March 16, spoke about navigating through some of the crises seen in the movie.

Many people leave church because they get hurt. In “Miracles from Heaven,” actress Jennifer Garner, who plays Christy Beam, has a season where she leaves her place of worship because of criticisms she encounter after her daughter becomes ill.

“I think people have to realize that they don’t go to church for other people. Until they realize that, they will always get disappointed and leave because other people are just as flawed as you are,” Bishop Jakes told The Christian Post when asked how he, as a man of the cloth, would handle that situation.

“You go to church to have an encounter with God in the midst of other people, so as long as we understand that clearly, we’ll get around it, but people don’t understand it and they get wounded at a moment of vulnerability,” he continued.
