Last night I was flipping through the TV channels, while doing laundry, and came upon Dr. Phil. Now, I don't think Dr. Phil is bad - I actually believe he has some worthwhile things to say most of the time. But, it isn't a show I normally watch.
Anyways - TD Jakes was on the show last night. So, since he was on there to help "counsel" the people on the show - I was very interested in hearing what he would say to people. I figured that this man who pastors a church of 30,000 members would be "representin'" for the faith!
I was sorely disappointed!
He helped counsel a husband and wife on the brink of divorce. The wife thinks the husband should be making more money to provide her the kind of lifestyle she desires. Both TD Jakes and Dr. Phil told the husband that he needed to really pay attention to what the wife was asking him for.
He helped counsel a man who was angry at the world. And he helped counsel a couple whose son had shot himself accidentally with a gun from their home.
None of the advice given to these people was bad really, but here is what disappointed me. I never once heard him ask these people if they had a church or christian counselor to go to. Nor did he mention the bible -what God would say about the situation. Or even mention that God was the way to healing for these people......
I suppose, maybe, he wasn't allowed to say anything because it was the Dr. Phil show?
And to give him the benefit of a doubt, he could have talked to each one of them about God AFTER the show......
I just was sorely disappointed. I thought for sure that TD Jakes would be turning these people to the LORD. Not just aiding in giving them the clinical psychology answers to their problems.
Anyone else see it? Here is a link if you want to check it out.
Hope you all have a great Tuesday.
