Creflo Dollar, a prosperity “gospel” preacher, recently asked his supporters to give him $60 million to buy a new private jet for “ministry.”
For some reason, this ask was a bit too big. Apparently it’s OK to weasel people out of smaller sums of money, but not $60 million.
Good to know people have limits.
Since the hubbub began, Mr. Dollar has removed all trace of his big ask from his website, but due to the miracles of the Internets, some of the text from the site remains. Here’s a snippet:
“”Heavenly Father, as the righteousness of God by faith we come boldly, confidently, and fearlessly to Your throne of great grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help us obtain this Gulfstream G650.
“This G650 will serve as a ministry tool for Pastor Creflo Dollar to carry the Good News—too good to be true—revelation of Your love and grace around the world.””
If that doesn’t make your skin crawl and your antichrist meter ring, I don’t know what would. I’ll quote some Apostle Paul to leave you with a better taste in your mouth:
“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.“
