1.1 million viewers tuned in for Oxygen’s new docu-series “Preachers of L.A.” making it the biggest Wednesday night season premiere on Oxygen to date and the network’s second highest rated series ever.

But one person who wasn’t tuning in was T.D. Jakes.

The mega church pastor took a moment to denounce the show during his Sunday sermon at The Potter’s House.

“Now, I know you been watching that junk on TV. I want to tell you right now, not one dime of what you’re sowing right now will buy my suit. I want you to know my car is paid for. I want you to know I got my house on my own. I want you to know I’m not bling-blinging. I am not shake and bake. I had money when I came to Dallas and I plan to have some when I leave.

You did not buy what I got. I had it when I came here. You know I had it when I came here. The devil is a lie! I have sold enough books and produced enough movies. I don’t need your offering to pay for this little slimy suit. So I rebuke that spirit in the name of Jesus Christ.”

If there was any question about exactly who or what Jakes was referencing he told his congregation,

I’m not from L.A. I’m from Dallas!”
