Many know Bishop T.D. Jakes as the internationally acclaimed preacher, author, teacher, and pastor of the megachurch The Potter’s House.   While Jakes’ has many adoring followers, not everyone is a supporter.  David Lee is one of those people.  Lee attended the Potter’s House and worked with Jakes for 20 years participating in many non-profit organizations and traveling the world evangelizing.

However, all of that changed when Lee published a book that pleas with readers to quit supporting the prosperity gospel doctrine preached by Jakes.  Lee says he wrote the book “out of obedience to a mandate from God on my life.”  In it, he makes the assertion that tithing is no longer scriptural or ethical.  He discusses how tithing in the Bible was about Israel’s economy, and that under Mosaic law, tithing was about helping the needy, not about giving money.  He also points out that God wants His followers to be living sacrifices, not to give Him large sums of money.

Lee states in the book, “we are not in need of a revival in our churches; we are in desperate need of a funeral.  The call goes out to bury many of the practices which have a purely business focus in our churches today.”  It has been revealed that Jakes charged ministers and elders of his church more than $1,000 to attend a two day conference he conducted.  He also is known to charge amounts ranging from $55,000 to $100,000 to preach at inviting churches.  While some may be okay with this, one has to wonder if it is the Christian thing to do to charge such large sums simply to share the message of Jesus.

The following video is a book trailer for Lee’s book, Sunday Morning Stickup: What Your Pastor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Tithes.  Watch it to find out what happened the day Lee and his family were escorted out of Bishop Jakes’ church in response to the book being published and for a preview of his revealing tell all book about the prosperity gospel Jakes’ preaches and why the doctrine helps Jakes essentially rob church members.
