“We have really become prostitutes to politics,” famed preacher T.D. Jakes asserted at the recent International Pastors and Leadership Conference, reports CBN.
Now, Jakes says, it is time to come together, and for Churches to work across political lines. An even clearer split in political affiliation has been seen amongst Churches since Donald Trump came onto the scene.
“The problem that the church finds is that we find ourselves having to hook our wagon to one political side or the other, when the truth of the matter is we don’t totally agree with either side about everything,” Jakes explained. “We end up with debris or contamination—when we attach our identity to either [party] and act like this is God’s choice for the body of Christ,” he said.
