The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

TD Jakes' New Book on Forgiveness Denies Original Sin?

T.D. Jakes recently released a new book on forgiveness that has at least one critic accusing the renowned preacher of denying the doctrine of original sin.

Chris Rosebrough, an apologist, rejected Jakes' statement to CP that forgiveness is innate and unforgiveness is learned from one's environment. There isn't a "single passage (in Scripture) that says human beings are by nature forgiving," he argued.

Rosebrough explored the premise of Jakes' new book Let It Go: Forgive So You Can Be Forgiven on his radio program, "Fighting for the Faith."

Jakes is the pastor of the 30,000-member The Potter's House in Dallas, Texas, and his book claims that people learn how to be unforgiving by behavior modeled to them, so this means they can also unlearn it and become forgiving.

Listing some of the sources of unforgiveness, the Dallas pastor said that it often stems from people feeling their future has been damaged or taken from them, or if betrayal has not been sufficiently atoned.

Megachurch Pastors Joel Osteen, TD Jakes Partner on MegaFest Dallas

Thousands of attendees from some 40 countries are expected in Dallas for Bishop T.D. Jakes’ MegaFest Aug. 29-31.

The three-day festival is returning to the United States for the first time since 2006 and will be held at the Dallas Convention Center, American Airlines Center and other venues throughout the city. MegaFest marries four of Jakes’ most popular conferences: ManPower, Woman Thou Art Loosed, Mega-Youth and Mega Kidz, with plenty of faith, entertainment and business features for the entire family.

Pastor Joel Osteen and his wife, Victoria, will headline the event along with Jakes. Other nationally known guests include Bishop I.V. Hilliard, Jasmin Sculark, Marvin Sapp, Pastor Sheryl Brady, E. Dewey Smith and Pastor Chris Durso.

MegaFest seeks to guide attendees in finding God’s true purpose for their lives. Jakes encourages men, women and youth looking for answers and encouragement to join him at the festival for a chance to recommit their faith and heal from life’s struggles.

“It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are in life, everyone is looking for answers, and MegaFest is the place to find them,” says Jakes, who started MegaFest in 2004. “Whether you come on your own or with family and friends, one thing is for sure: People attending MegaFest will find joy, fun, great music, encouraging community and powerful messages of inspiration, hope and purpose.”

MegaFest’s four signature events include:
•ManPower: A high-energy experience of powerful biblical teaching, worship and personal reflection, ManPower is an event for men of all backgrounds to hear from major sports figures, entertainers and world leaders about building a purpose-filled life.
•Woman Thou Art Loosed: Focused on women seeking answers and spiritual guidance, this event features appearances by nationally recognized entertainers and is comprised of talk sessions, powerful preaching, biblical teaching and worship to encourage and inspire.
•Mega-Youth: Featuring popular youth-focused entertainers and speakers, Mega-Youth provides a forum for young people to find answers and encouragement and a chance to enjoy an energized experience of faith, purpose and community.
•Mega Kidz: Mega Kidz is an adventure crafted just for children to give them a memorable MegaFest experience in a secure environment.

Tickets for the three-day men’s and women’s conferences are $50 per person, while three-day admission to the youth and children’s conferences are $20 per person; discount family and group packages are available. Participants can register online.

MegaFest has welcomed more than 700,000 attendees since its inception in 2004. Past speakers and performers have included Aretha Franklin, Steve Harvey, Dave Ramsey and Cirque du Soleil. This is the first time MegaFest is hosted in Dallas.

T.D. Jakes Comes Out for ‘Gay Marriage’ and ‘LGBT Churches,’ Says Position is ‘Evolving’

Megachurch leader and author T.D. Jakes says that homosexuals should attend congregations that affirm their lifestyle and that politics do not need to reflect biblical ethics, adding that his position on homosexuality is both “evolved and evolving.”

During an interview with the Huffington Post on Monday, Jakes was asked by a viewer if he believes that homosexuals and the black church can co-exist.

“Absolutely… I think it is going to be diverse from church to church. Every church has a different opinion on the issue and every gay person is different,” he replied. “And I think that to speak that the church—the black church, the white church or any kind of church you wanna call it—are all the same, is totally not true.”

Jakes said that he thinks homosexuals should find congregations that affirm their lifestyle.

“LGBT’s of different types and sorts have to find a place of worship that reflects what your views are and what you believe like anyone else,” he outlined.

“The church should have the right to have its own convictions and values; if you don’t like those convictions and values [and] you totally disagree with it, don’t try to change my house, move into your own … and find somebody who gets what you get about faith,” Jakes added.

He said that the issue of homosexuality is “complex.”

“Paul spends a lot of time wrestling back and forth, trying to understand should a woman wear a head covering, should you cut your hair,” Jakes stated. “I mean, they grappled back then and we’re grappling now because we’re humans and we are flawed and we’re not God.”

“Once you understand you’re not God, you leave yourself an ‘out’ clause to grow,” he said.

When asked if his position on homosexuality has “evolved,” Jakes agreed that it has.

“Evolved and evolving,” he replied. “I think that where I am is to better understand we, the church, bought into the myth that this is a Christian nation.”

Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states must legalize same-sex “marriage,” igniting a battle between the Church and State over the issue. In his comments on Monday, Jakes advocated for the separation of Church and State, which would allow for “all types of people” to have whatever rights they desire despite biblical prohibitions. He said that politics don’t need to be based on Christianity.

  • nce you get past [thinking America is a Christian nation] … Once you begin to understand that democracy—that a republic actually—is designed to be an overarching system to protect our unique nuances, then we no longer look for public policy to reflect biblical ethics,” Jakes explained.

“If we can divide—or what you would call separation of Church and State—then we can dwell together more effectively because atheists, agnostics, Jews, all types of people, Muslims, pay into the government. The government then cannot reflect one particular view over another just because we’re the dominant group of religious people in [this] country because those numbers are changing every day,” he asserted. “We need a neutralized government that protects our right to disagree with one another and agree with one another.”

Jakes had visited the Huffington Post to discuss his new book on “destiny.” The interview focused on motivational subject matter in following one’s dreams and passions as opposed to the eternal destiny of the soul.

Concerns Raised After T.D. Jakes' Wife Posts Photos of Yoga Session at The Potter's House Church

Concerns were recently raised online after Serita Jakes, the wife of controversial megachurch minister T.D. Jakes, posted photographs of women engaging in a yoga session at The Potter’s House during a forum designed to teach women about leading healthy lives.

“Today, we aspired to inspire #health mentally, emotionally, and physically. Our ladies even got a taste of #yoga from @Mrs_BrittHall,” Jakes posted to Instagram and Facebook on Aug. 4. “Health goes beyond what you eat. It’s in the way you think, speak, and live. Thank you to all of the lovely sister girls that came to play with us! I love you. #AspireToInspire #W2W #EmotionalWellnessMatters”

The photographs showed the crowd of women at the “Woman to Woman: Aspire to Inspire” event following various yoga poses as led by Hall. Hall outlined on social media that she led the women in chair yoga, walking them through aspects such as flexibility and balance, mindfulness and conscious breathing.

“I led the #W2W #AspireToInspire ladies through a chair yoga session where we focused on: physical wellness with strength, flexibility, mobility, and balance; mental wellness by reciting positive affirmations and being mindful of our thoughts regarding ourselves (mindfulness); emotional wellness by focusing on conscious breathing, and letting go!” she wrote.

Hall identifies as an engineering yogi, and is an instructor at Gaia Flow Yoga in Dallas. She and her husband also run Hall Strategies, LLC. Hall had written an article for Jakes’ eMotions Magazine last year, explaining why she believes yoga is beneficial for Christians.

“I believe that yoga is a form of body prayer, which allows us to express gratitude and thankfulness to God through physical movements and meditation (prayer),” she wrote. “My genre of yoga allows students to practice surrendering their bodies to Jesus Christ, knowing that because of Him, we are able to move, breathe, flow and live.”

Hall argued that while some point to yoga’s Hindu roots, she believes no single religion can lay claim to yoga—that it is a neutral practice and is what one makes it to be.

“The simple truth is that ‘yoga’ does not belong to one religion any more than prayer can belong to a single religion. Therefore, yoga is neutral and takes on the quality of the student,” she asserted. “Each student should set their own intention and establish a purpose for their personal practice.”

However, some have expressed strong objections in seeing that a yoga session was held at The Potter’s House.

“I’ll be going to a new church now. Yoga is rooted in Hindu worship. Yoga is a practice found in all sects of Hinduism. There are different types of yoga, but all are touted as a means to achieve unity with the divine and thus to earn salvation. Kundalini [is] the yogic life force that is held to lie coiled (snake) at the base of the spine until it is aroused and sent to the head to trigger enlightenment,” one commenter wrote.

“This is very dangerous practice to introduce in the church. It may seem innocent, but it really isn’t. Who will stop people from going into deeper forms of yoga?” another asked. “When one opens up their spirit, the enemy has the legal right to bring all kinds of corruption to one’s soul. I have cast out many demons that have entered in this fashion. This is not right.”

“‘Is yoga really that bad? C’mon, it’s just stretching,’ said the serpent. Yes, it is opening yourself up to a worldview that is completely opposite of Biblical truth. And, I speak from direct experience,” a third opined.

“Is Heaven so bankrupt that you have to borrow from the devil?” another inquired. “Please research before you lead these beautiful ladies to worship that’s not of God.”

In a booklet entitled “Yoga: Exercise or Religion—Does it Matter?”, author Ray Yungen outlines that while many view yoga as harmless exercise, there is no denying that the practice is rooted in Eastern New Age religion.

“The word ‘yoga’ actually means to be yoked to or united in body, mind, and spirit with Brahman (the Hindu concept of God). It doesn’t get more spiritually obvious than that,” he outlined. “… Even the traditional Hindu greeting, Namasté, that is said at the end of yoga classes, is spiritual. When translated, it means, ‘The god in me bows down to (or salutes) the god in you.’”

“If you go to the fitness section of any bookstore and look in the yoga subsection, you will find references to the spiritual aspects of Yoga such as the chakra system, kundalini, etc. in almost every book on yoga. It is quite rare to find a book on yoga that does not incorporate spiritual concepts found in classic Hinduism,” Yungen explained. “To devout Hindus, yoga cannot be separated into physical and spiritual parts. Both are relevant to the practice, with the end desire being a profound religious experience.”

He said that some Christians have wrongly concluded that yoga can be adopted by believers as long as it is stripped of its pagan aspects.

“We live in an age where the acceptance of trendy practices, such as yoga, is hammered into us from every side, with the end result being an ecumenical generic inter-spirituality that fits everybody,” Yungen lamented.

“Believers in Christ have fallen prey to some dangerous ideas. One is that we feel free to draw from pagan sources. Or, as is popularly stated, we can chew the meat and spit out the bones. But this doesn’t make any sense from a biblical standpoint,” he said. “As a Christian, we can’t segregate into portions what part we think will do us harm and what part will profit us. If the foundational spirituality is contrary to God’s word, then it will be folly to interact with it.”
