Wearing Ripped Jeans Is A Sin? Bishop T.D Jakes Comes Under Fire For Wearing Ripped Jeans To Church Yesterday(LOOK)

Popular preacher Bishop T.D Jakes is the latest victim of social media critics as he has come under fire for wearing the ripped jeans pictured above to church yesterday.

The renown motivation speaker and author however did not let himself be bullied by some instagrammers who commented on his photo after he posted it on the photo sharing social networking site. See the comments and his response below:

I’m siding with the Bishop on this one, and I see nothing wrong with his jeans or how he was dressed. Feel free to disagree and air your views. Do leave your comments.

    I agree with TD jakes on this too Moji. It’s not about what you put on. It’s about what’s inside you. God sees only the heart Not ripped Jeans!

    Lol. Ordinary Ripped Jeans at the knee pple dey complain. If d man come wear proper tear tear distress jeans nko heavens will fall by? It’s just amazing how pple feel they have an opinion which they assume is the truth about a person’s life because the person is a a celeb on social media. By all means it’s your opinion, ure entitled to it. What ure not entitled to is to spew that opinion parading it as truth on the page of the subject matter. Celebs need to be clapping back more like seriously. This social media bullying of celebrities is getting out of hand.

    It’s a pity, we use the same religion that’s meant to show us the way to freedom, is used as a tool to tame us, cage us, as well as causing destruction.

    This is another miscommunication/ misinterpretation of the word of God.

    And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free…

    I’ve got indifferent about this ‘man of God’. He couldn’t come out and say outright that homosexuality is a sin. Rather, he was indirectly upholding it.
    He can wear whatever he likes.

    Guys, men of God should be respected, anytime they are being mentioned, don’t put them under the sword with ur comments. He may be putting that on to encourage people who have gone astray to come to church. If he is in refined suits, how can he reach out to gangsters and rugged dressers? Sometimes to win a soul, you have to show that you don’t condemn what that soul is doing…..

      You are naïve sorry to say. Do you have to go and sleep with a prostitute in an hotel to win other prostitutes . Hosea 4:6

        Before using your judgmental pencil, did you read my comment? “The word “May” is merely an assumption, which means I can be right or wrong. Who are you to call someone naïve? Look kiddo, its a new year, don’t wanna start the year with beefs, be warned!!!

    Rev. Jakes has always been on the hip, relatable side. Plus it was probably a somewhat unplanned drop in to this church.

    I think it would have been a blessing if you had discussed this politely and privately with the Man of God. Be careful when talking about the weakness of Men of God.

    For those who have a problem with Bishop Jakes’s ripped jeans, they’d better not attend White congregations here in Orange County, CA. They’d faint if they saw the pastors wearing shorts, Hawaiian shirts and flip flops like I’ve seen! Your salvation is not determined by attire. Enough with the holy fashion plates! Just worship God the way YOU want to!

    TOO BUSY LOOKING AT THE GENES AND MISSING the WORD of GOD. Stop judging others AND LOOKING IN THE MIRROR. The MAN is a MAN of GOD.Be careful.

    Funny how religious people worry so much about what the Pastor is wearing and pay less attention to what he’s saying. I just wish “they” would focus more on doing what he preaches. And by the way, if you have the time to focus on what people are wearing, how about working on all that butt being shown by men wearing their pants on their thighs. Oh, and if you could, see what you could do about the young girls showing all they got, being pregnant at 15, 3 babies by the time their 18. Yep, that’s a real problem!

    As a Pastor and one who certainly respects the TDJakes Ministry, I’m surprised at how some of you would talk down about this great man of God not knowing the danger you put youself in. Now, we see gospel singers and artist on the tv and in church service all the with jeans with holes in them and the women with short tight dresses on that are not far from what one would see in the club and everybody is ok with the examples they set with their dress code. We fail to realise the Bible says come as you are not come as people expect or always agree with. Bishop Jake’s does not measure his spitritual lifestyle by the clothes he wear but rather by Spirit of God and the soul of man.
    Fact: just be a use he is a man of God by the way of Bishop and is in the eye of the public doesn’t mean he can’t dress in the latest fashions, it doesn’t mean he has to walk around in a clergy collar and or a. Bishops robe all the time. Would you have a problem seeing him out jogging with a warm up suite on? No I didn’t think so, so you shouldn’t have a problem with the jeans he’s wearing. HES STILL GODS MANDATE AND ANOINTES VESSEL so we best be real careful of what we say about this mighty man of God.

    Did anyone read his statement where he said (he) sees why young people are talking about this ministry and its growing? We zoom through content but do not comprehend the context. Do we sleep with prostitutes to WI them? Surely not. We don’t so to win simmers but we “meet them where they are” as Paul says. We miss the message because we are consumed by the mess.

    Leviticus 10:6 says we shouldn’t tear our clothes …I stand to be corrected as I don’t know if God was referring to the two sons of Aaron alone or all believers.
