The Lakewood Church Pastor preached on Sunday and explained why they delayed in opening his doors to evacuees. The pastor blamed internal flooding for the delay, and said a security company might have been responsible for turning people away. He also claims his megachurch was always open to the public, despite videos and eyewitnesses saying otherwise.
