Marvin Sapp came to Bishop Jakes defense when social media took offense to his comment to wives at his annual Pastors and Leadership Conference, instructing them to not only be their husband wife, but be his Delilah.
Some users interpreted this to mean that Jakes was suggesting Delilah was good for Sampson. Bishop Marvin Sapp, however, came to Jakes’ defense, posting on Facebook:
I’ve been reading many of your post and I’m convinced that in y’all attempts to be spiritual [ya’ll] denigrated Delilah. Read the statement “Don’t just be his wife be his Delilah” 1.) it was directed to wives 2.) the instruction wasn’t to take on her character but to look at the reasons he kept coming back and apply those positive principles to your relationship with your mate/husband. (A) she was what he desired. (B) because she was what he desired he kept running back to her (C) he trusted her so much he shared his deepest secret with her. As a man, I promise you this is what every man wants. You can be whatever biblical figure you please, however, you better make sure you do those 3 things for you future mate…..
