Bishop T.D. Jakes, with real interest, I watched your interview with Marc Hill, and the one thing that was clear was that you did not answer with clarity.
There's a lot we can learn from last week's viral internet accusation that Carl Lentz, pastor of Hillsong NYC, allowed an openly homosexual couple to participate in and help lead a chuch choir.
Without a doubt, we have hurt our witness to the world with our hypocrisy, thereby undercutting our moral and spiritual authority. Why should people listen to us if we preach one thing and do another? How can we expose sin in the society when we're practicing sin in the church? On what basis can we speak out against gay "marriage" when we've allowed our own marriages to go to pot?

"Black lives matter!" That chant needs to be amplified and expanded: "Black lives matter, beginning in the womb!"
I'm sure there are pastors, evangelists, and Christian leaders who have gotten rich off the gospel, but they are few and far between, and the idea that many of us are in the ministry for the sake of money is simply a myth.
I was filling out a form at the doctor's office the other day when I was reminded of a stark truth: Biological, genetic males will never be females, no matter how much surgery they have and no matter how many hormones they take.
If we are really going to see a gospel-based moral and cultural revolution, then we must be a spiritual army, and if we are really going to be a spiritual army, then we must be a people who are submitted to authority.
The video evidence is too clear to deny, as a powerful Planned Parenthood leader discusses the sale of baby parts – livers, limbs, tissue, and hearts – while casually eating her dinner, even describing how partial birth abortion is used to preserve those body parts which are in particular demand.
Ironically, while disparaging The Christian Post as "not exactly a site for intellectuals," Perron published his piece on the Huffington Post website, which, to my knowledge, has never been mistaken for the Harvard Law Review.

At the invitation of The Christian Post, I am answering the 40 questions put forward by "gay Christian" advocate Matthew Vines, after which I will put two simple questions to Matthew (and his allies).
