Bishop TD Jakes’ ‘Careful Comments’ on State to State Marriage Equality is Questioned
Well, we watched the video we posted below and we have to agree with the Bishop. He says people probably won’t agree with him but we shouldn’t get so excited about this. Now, this doesn’t mean we agree but the world does exactly what we should expect: WHATEVER THEY WANT DESPITE WHAT CHRISTIANS FEEL! It’s the truth and what we as believers of Jesus Christ have to do is continue to witness, Pray and not allow the world’s views to manipulate and twist our views. When we heard the news, we were a bit shocked and don’t believe the ruling will stick but we know who we are and who Christ is. Period!!
