The senior pastor of Potter’s House Church in Dallas, Bishop T.D. Jakes has condemned the new Oxygen docu-series “Preachers of L.A.”

Jakes recently took to the pulpit to speak out against the docu-series making sure his congregation knew that he is not using their financial contributions on personal gain after the first episode of the controversial show aired.

“Now, I know you been watching that junk on TV. I want to tell you right now, not one dime of what you’re sowing right now will buy my suit. I want you to know my car is paid for,” Jakes told his congregation on Sunday.

To make sure there was no doubt about who he was talking about, the Bishop went on to tell his congregation, “I’m not from L.A. I’m from Dallas!”

Bishop Noel Jones, the senior pastor of the City of Refuge Church in Gardena, Calif. who is good friends with Jakes and part of the featured pastor in the docu-series had previously revealed what the Potter’s House pastor had to say about his participation in the series.

“My best friend (Bishop T.D. Jakes) said when he heard I was doing this – because I didn’t call him – but when he heard I was doing this, he said that he swallowed his tongue,” Jones told recently. “So when he said he swallowed his tongue when he heard I was doing it – and rightfully so – because from his perspective, we’re two different people.”

Jones described the differences between he and his best friend. He also admitted to receiving mixed reactions from other friends of his.

“I’m more open and more gregarious than he is, and less protected. And so, and he’s very protective,” Jones revealed to “..I called a couple of my friends and I got different opinions – some said ‘Yes’, some said ‘No.'”
