BishopT.D. Jakes is certainly a man of Christ, but he has little patience for those who criticize his clothing choices. When Jakes posted an Instagram photo recently of his church attire when going to visit his son-in-law and daughter’s church, One Church L.A., some folks had a problem with the ripped jeans Jakes wore.
Some commenters found the jeans age-inappropriate, others felt they didn’t show enough respect for the church.
One poster was a little more open to the outfit, but wondered what message Jakes’ look sent.
I mean the bible doesn’t give us direct counsel on exactly what we should wear to our bible meetings but think about this… We dress way better for job interviews and this kind of look would be considered unprofessional, so wouldn’t we always want to display our best for God? Just a thought. Not judging. Everybody has the right to make their decisions on dress.
Still others though Jakes looked just fine:
“You can’t expect the bishop to wear robes & suits everyday!!! Cmon grow up! Bishop Jakes looks great… His fit is very age appropriate & classy. Do it for the vine sir!!!
“God doesn’t care what you wear He is more concerned about our soul and heart. He loves you no matter what. If Bishop Jakes wants to wear jeans let him if God doesn’t like that’s between Him and God and doesn’t concern anyone else. As long as his heart is right with the Lord what is the point in arguing.”
