BishopT.D. Jakes is certainly a man of Christ, but he has little patience for those who criticize his clothing choices. When Jakes posted an Instagram photo recently of his church attire when going to visit his son-in-law and daughter’s church, One Church L.A., some folks had a problem with the ripped jeans Jakes wore

Some commenters found the jeans age-inappropriate, others felt they didn’t show enough respect for the church.

One poster was a little more open to the outfit, but wondered what message Jakes’ look sent.

I mean the bible doesn’t give us direct counsel on exactly what we should wear to our bible meetings but think about this… We dress way better for job interviews and this kind of look would be considered unprofessional, so wouldn’t we always want to display our best for God? Just a thought. Not judging. Everybody has the right to make their decisions on dress.
