TD Jakes: ‘All I Got To Do Is Repent’ If Gay Sex Rumors Are True

Christmas has not been a jolly season for TD Jakes this year, as pervasive allegations that he had homosexual sex with a minor at Diddy’s house went extremely viral on TikTok and other social media with millions of people seeing them.

The allegation is that a minor, whose family attended The Potter’s House until he left in 2015, was forced to perform a sex act on Jakes. The video alleged that the teenage boy’s family was paid off to keep what happened quiet, but he now intends to seek his own justice as an adult. Interestingly enough, there is an established connection between TD Jakes and Diddy that involves partying.

Unsurprisingly TD Jakes is denying the salacious claims made against him. More surprisingly was his response which seems to brush off the seriousness of the claims. As quoted by Christian Post in a now private Youtube video:

“Would y’all please do me a favor and stop worrying about me and give God some praise and honor and glory? I can feel you. … I am fine. I’m good. I’m good. I’m the man for the job. I’m good,” Jakes declared in a public livestream of his Christmas Eve service on YouTube which has since been made private.

“I can feel you. I can feel you. Relax … We’re not gonna let the devil take over our service.  No, no, no, no, no. We’re gonna give God some praise and some honor and some glory, for this is the day that the Lord has made, we shall rejoice and be glad in it,” he insisted. “I’m not going to let the rain stop me. I’m not going to let the weather stop me. And I’m sure not going to let the liars stop me.

“The worst that could happen, if everything was true, all I got to do is repent sincerely, from my heart. There’s enough power in the blood to cover all kinds of sin. I don’t care what it is, the blood would fix it. But I ain’t got to repent about this,” Jakes declared.

“All I got to do is step over top of it and keep on going on. I’m not in trouble. I’m talking about the power of the blood. Amen. Thank you, Jesus. I have used it, and I will use it again. But I ain’t gotta use it for that. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus. Whenever I need it, it’s available to me. And it’s available to you. And you can have it when you need it. But you don’t have to plead the blood if you didn’t do the crime.”

Yet if TD Jakes is guilty of homosexual pederasty he should not be a pastor and instead incarcerated.

  1. Sadly, this perversion of the grace of God into a license for immorality (Jude, 2 Peter 2) is what many professing Christians believe. Sin all you want, and all you’ve got to do is repent. That’s not what the Bible says. The Bible says that if you continue in sin then you were never truly born again.

    If he never did or said anything else wrong in his life, that one sentence is enough to expose him as a false teacher, who is leading many astray.

    1. No, this is not what many professing Christians believe if they are truly Christians. Christianity is not a license to sin. Jakes has been peddling a good deal of false doctrine for years. The celebrity status of these MegaChurch pastors seems to breed this attitude within them that because they pastor a huge church and enjoy celebrity status that they can behave in whatever behavior they want, but that is not what most ground-level Christians believe.

      1. “Professing” refers to those who claim to be a Christian, whether they truly are or not. And the Bible clearly says that if they continue in sin, they certainly are not, no matter how often they claim to repent – 1 John 3:8-10, etc.

        Just TD Jakes and his followers qualify as “many”, and they’re just a drop in the bucket. I’ve been around a long time. I know for a fact that there are many.

        I can remember as child in Christian school (Baptist), one of the girls in my class, a preacher’s daughter no less, use to pass around a poem that ended something along these lines …

        Sex is sin
        Sin is forgiven
        So sex is in

        That’s Jude 4 in a nutshell. Now, some fifty years later, look a the shape this country is in. It didn’t happen overnight. And it started long before anybody ever heard of TD Jakes.

        Hope that clears up the misunderstanding …

  2. Nauseating. When I hosted my podcast, Bible News Radio, I was BEGGED by Jakes publicity team to come and be in a Zoom meeting with him. I decided to go to see how many people showed up and there were like 6 of us. No one in the media wanted to cover the story. I got the video of the meeting and never mentioned it on my show. This guy is a heretic anyway, so none of this is a surprise to me.

  3. Christians who repent are indeed forgiven, but must still suffer the temporal consequences for their actions.
