… thus claims the wife of ‘Bishop’ T.D. Jakes (the prominent preacher who only two years ago ostensibly repudiated the anti-Trinitarian views he had held hitherto then, but still promotes the ‘prosperity gospel’, and still is dubious):
Serita Jakes, first lady of The Potter’s House megachurch in Dallas, where her husband, T.D. Jakes, is the lead pastor, draws from her personal and ministerial experiences to understand the struggles teenage girls of the current generation often face in her new book, The Princess Within For Teens.
Growing up as the daughter of a coal miner, Jakes experienced self-esteem issues that led her astray even though her peers encouraged her to embrace her potential.
As the leader of an all-girls program, Jakes has also witnessed the consequences that can happen when teenage girls are not empowered and encouraged to live life knowing they were made for God-given royalty, despite their circumstances.
Jakes taps into subjects such as the influence of social media on self-esteem and communication, while also shares stories of how she overcame complex issues while a teenager living in West Virginia.
‘First Lady’? That’s rich… I never knew T.D. Jakes was the President of the United States…
I’m not going to bother going further into this article; I’ll just note that their daughter Sarah was knocked up at thirteen, and divorced from her husband of four years two years ago. (Ostensibly for Biblical reasons; even if so, she should have chosen better; well-known professional athletes like her ex-husband are often known for infidelity, sports groupies; IMO her poor choice of a mate is of a piece with her earlier poor decisions…)
So, this ‘First Lady’ thinks she’s in a position to counsel others’ teenage daughters, despite how her own daughter got knocked up at thirteen? And that self-esteem is what they’re lacking? The social media, narcissist, multiple-selfie-snapping generation? And thinking themselves ‘daughters of the King’, ‘princesses’, is what they need? To further their narcissism?
