“The Sunday Morning Stick Up: What Your Pastor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Tithes.”.By: Freelance Reporter Joan Ross,
and in Scandal Media.
Admittedly, I have not even read two words of the book but I can already tell that it’s filled with incriminating information about gospel pimps like Jakes and their money fleecing schemes.
The author of the book, Elder Davidlee Richardson, has been apart of the Potter’s House church for a number of years and has been apart of many non profit organizations–traveling the globe evangelizing. . Bishop Jakes is known to other ministers around the world as the “KING PIMP”, pimping members in the body of Christ out of their hard earned money Sunday after Sunday. Jakes has procured millions over the years with a plethora of money making gimmicks. He continues to pimp weak minded believers out money as often as possible.
During a normal service at the Potters House, it takes Jakes only 10 or 12 minutes to collect an offering from thousands of brainwashed followers, primarily, because he always has a story to share about a member receiving a miracle–normally before the money is procured.
But one has to wonder what esoteric information in that book, would make Pimp-daddy Jakes kick a long time Elder out of his church during a Sunday morning service. Sense this incident, neither Jakes nor Elder Richardson has had any contact.
Scandal Media has also learned that Jakes is charging ministers/elders of his church $1,100 to attend a conference for two days so he can “pour into their lives.” Also, many of the ministers and elders don’t have the money to attend, and are taking out Payday Loans, and getting into debt just to be in the number and attend his events. Many of his ministers have fell on hard times in the past, and asked the church for help and the answer has been “No.”
According to another friend who is a former staff member of The Potter’s House, Jakes charges any where from $55,000 to $100,000 to come preach at your church. Plus a luxury hotel room, meals, and your church must be a certain size before he even agrees to fool with you. Half of the money is due up front, and then you must agree to give Jakes 50% of the offering raised that night.
Elder Richardson says Jakes has never been about the business of winning souls for Christ, but about making his pockets fatter. Anybody that’s in Jakes inner circle should never try to educate folks about tithe because you will be excoriated and jettisoned from his inner circle. People in these churches forget the love of God is free, and needs to start thinking for themselves.
