On the 25th of this month, the “Elephant Room 2” conference has welcomed T.D. Jakes with the expectation that He would announce that he is not a heretic, but actually believes in the doctrine of the Trinity and is not a Modalist heretic. However, if this were affirmed by T.D. Jakes at the “Elephant Room2” conference, it wouldn’t put him in the clear in terms of orthodxy since he has been openly affirming the heresy of Universalism by denying that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to escape the Judgment of God, which is a different gospel. He also teaches the false gospel of prosperity, which teaches that Jesus Christ’ incarnation and atonement was to make his followers rich and healthy here on earth before Christ’ return to earth. Jakes also affirms the false gospel of easy believism, which teaches that a verbal confession of faith in Christ is all that is required for eternal life; thus neglecting the need to repent of one’s sins and to follow the teachings of Christ.
According to Scripture, these false gospels that Jakes teaches disqualifies him for both ministry in Christ’ church and eternal life.
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Therefore, to affirm Jakes as both a follower of Jesus Christ and a pastor can only result in Christ’ rejection of the work being done at the “Elephant Room” as well as the loss of God’s reward to the ministers who both invited Jakes and affirmed him as orthodox.
7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
According to Scripture, the spirit of antichrist speaks falsely about Jesus Christ. It can be noted that it refuses correction on this matter as well. The spirit of antichrist insists upon speaking falsely about Christ and will not submit to the authority of Christ’ church when it tries to correct the spirit of antichrist’ error.
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
T.D. Jakes indeed speaks falsely about Christ through his false gospels. But did he repent of his heretical teaching of Modalism? To find out, click on the provided link entitled “Jakes in the Elephant Room 2“.
