A wife should be given $1000 from her husband to get her hair and nails done because God made it that way. Who would even dare assert something like that? What venue would allow such a speaker?
T.D. Jakes held MegaFest 2017 and had John Gray as a speaker. Gray is an associate pastor at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church. Osteen is author of Your Best Life Now, so it’s not a stretch to believe the associate pastor under Osteen could tell all of Christendom that God wants a husband to give his wife $1000 to get her hair and nails done.
T.D. Jakes posted this video of John Gray speaking at MegaFest 2017.
What kind of world are these people living in where you just toss $1000 at your wife to get her hair and nails done? This points to the excess of their lifestyle, often at the fleecing of their own flock and followers. All done in the name of Jesus of course.
Paul wrote to the Corinthians about how he was hungry, thirsty, poorly clothed, and homeless.
11 To the present hour we hunger and thirst, we are poorly dressed and buffeted and homeless,12 and we labor, working with our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; 13 when slandered, we entreat. We have become, and are still, like the scum of the world, the refuse of all things. (1 Corinthians 4:11-13 ESV)
What advice would he have given to the Corinthian church?
“Hey my dearest Corinthians. I’m naked, hungry and homeless, but husbands be sure to have a few bucket loads full of denarii so your wives can get their nails and hair done. God made it that way.
Messages like these promoted by T.D. Jakes and John Gray grossly misrepresent Christianity. Instead of crucifying the flesh, they feed it mammon on steroids.
