I’ve had a lot of people ask this question and so I thought I would give what I believe is the strongest evidence for this claim. It involves an audio file of Jakes preaching, taken from Alpha and Omega Ministries. I have copied and pasted the section from my thesis on T. D. Jakes.
The best example of Jakes’ true belief concerning Jesus and the Father centers around John 14:11. In this verse, Jesus said, “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me . . . .” In a blatant misrepresentation of Scripture, Jakes collaborates with a female reader quoting this verse:(Simon Escobedo and Eddie Dalcour, “Oneness Pentecostalism: The Teaching of T. D. Jakes Exposed,” Summer 2002, http://www.straitgate.com/aom/ (25 July 2002).Jakes: I am going to rack your head, I’m going to scramble your heads . . . .Attempting to express amazement at Jesus’ confession that He was the Father, Jakes and his reader cry out with surprise, as though this was new revelation previously undiscovered. However, considering there is no Modal translation of the Bible, Jakes must have prompted the female reader to omit the preposition “in” while reading Jesus’ words, “I am in the Father.” His willingness to take away from the Word of God in order to make his interpretation work is a tactic that draws the condemnation of Scripture itself (Deut 4:2; 12:32; Prov 30:6; Jer 26:2; and Rev 22:18-19).
Reader: “Believest thou not that I am the Father?”
Jakes: Don’t you understand that “I am . . . .” – Oh!
Jakes: “I am . . . believest thou not that I am the Father.”
