In an appearance on ‘The Arsenio Hall Show,’ the controversial ‘Preachers of L.A.’ addressed criticism of the show and their “haters.”
“Anytime you’re moving into space that is uncharted you’re gonna have haters. Jesus had haters,” said Bishop Clarence McClendon. “I teach our people that the kingdom of God is a kingdom of relational influence. And anybody you refuse to relate to, you’ve also refused to influence.”
“When you start influencing people you’re going to get their opinions. And so, opinions come, opinions go, but I believe that we’re moving into an area where others are going to follow.”
As previously reported by NewsOne, the show follows Bishop Noel Jones, Deitrick Haddon, Bishop McClendon, Pastor Wayne Chaney, Bishop Ron Gibson and Pastor Jay Haizlip as they navigate roads of riches, redemption and ridiculousness.
