Televangelist Creflo Dollar a superstar of the prosperity gospel recently blasted “the enemy” for criticizing his dream of buying his pastors and staff at World Changers Church International a $65 million private Gulfstream G650 jet. Carol Kurville undressed this “reverend”on the Huffington Post.I wonder where Creflo studied scripture. Maybe the University of Centre Island or some other diploma mill.
This biblical illiterate is hardly alone when it comes to disfiguring Christianity but his gall is beyond belief.
“Let me tell you something about believing God,” he’s shown saying in a YouTubevideo of a sermon given at the World Dome, his 8,500-seat sanctuary in College Park, Georgia. “I can dream as long as I want to. I can believe God as long as I want to. If I want to believe God for a $65 million plane, you cannot stop me. You cannot stop me from dreaming.”
No,Mr Dollar but you got all the wrong dreams if you are referencing Jesus of Nazareth.The “prosperity gospel” has long preyed on the poor, the weak and the vulnerable who desperately want to escape their harsh conditions.They are told that believing in Jesus will make you richer.It does make the Dollar man rich.He really does need a private jet to spread his confusion among the vulnerable.
Poor willy Loman had ‘wrong dreams” in Arthur Miller’s great play Death of a Salesman but he only hurt himself and his family but this guy is over the top
Dollar’s initial request reportedly entailed asking 200,000 followers to donate $300 each to fund the effort, according to Christian Post. The fundraising page has since been taken down.
Dollar claims it was the devil that stirred the campaign against him. He believes Satan was trying to discredit him in order to stop the gospel from spreading.
You’d think anybody who is still blaming Satan has long ago surrendered any scriptural credibility. But no,the beat goes on.
“The enemy has got to discredit the voices of faith and grace and truth because he don’t want you to know that you can walk on the water if you can look at Jesus. I’ve got to discredit that man before he starts showing people Jesus,” Dollar said during the sermon.
Only in America? No but mainly in America among the poor and fundamentalist. Remember the 50 million books sold on the end times. The Late Great Planet Earth is the all time “religious” best seller.
Now here comes Creflo and the Jets.
