Creflo Dollar Has Lost His Mind, Wants Congregation To Buy Him a Jet

x99C_WAm

Creflo has dollars, and he has balls. The megachurch pastor is now asking his congregation to donate money so he can purchase a G6 jet! The money-grubbing pastor set up a donation page on his site — and is requesting everyone to donate money for his G650 Project.

No, I will not link that shit here.

But anyways, he states:

cd1

Help Us Continue to Spread the Gospel of Grace Around the World!

The ministry’s current airplane, was built-in 1984, purchased by the ministry in 1999 and has since logged four million miles. Recently on an overseas trip to a global conference, one of the engines failed. By the grace of God, the expert pilot, who’s flown with Creflo for almost 20 years, landed the plane safely without injury or harm to any passengers.

Due to this recent incident coupled with the 31 years the airplane has been in service, we believe it is time to replace this aircraft so that our Pastors and staff can continue to safely and swiftly share the Good News of the Gospel worldwide. We need your help to continue reaching a lost and dying world for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, we are asking members, partners, and supporters of this ministry to assist us in acquiring a Gulfstream G650 airplane so that Pastors Creflo and Taffi and World Changers Church International can continue to blanket the globe with the Gospel of grace.

Your love gift of any amount will be greatly appreciated.

The audacity of this man and having a church in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Atlanta, to request his congregation to buy him a new plane. Is he too good to fly USAir? Mother-f-ing Jet Blue? This is what’s wrong with these pastors, they go along in life fleecing their congregation for their own good.

But you know the sad thing is, some people will donate. Here’s a suggestion, he better take that old plane and trade it in. I’m sure he can get a little  money for it towards a new one.

    I live in Atlanta, Georgia. World Changers Ministries is in College Park. There is NOTHING going on in College Park, besides this mega church. Creflo Dollar AKA “Crept yo Dolla” around here, is a prosperity preacher. All this man does is preach about money, and prospering. Wanna know what kind of people attend his church?

    People who have money, and like to showcase.
    Poor people who pretend not to be too poor, so they can rub elbows with members who have money.
    People who are too poor to fake not being poor, and believe they will become rich by giving away their money to this so called church. Just a bunch of fake, lost people.

    If you fall on hard times, and ask for assistance, they will look to see how much money you have donated to the church. If you have not donated, they will not help you. It’s all about the money.I got this tid bit from a former member.

    Best believe, he will get that jet. He brainwashes every Sunday morning for it.

      “People who are too poor to fake not being poor, and believe they will
      become rich by giving away their money to this so called church.”

      Prosperity gospel is a dangerous drug and some of these big time preachers are nothing but pushermen.

      They placate these people with notions of financial miracles, but teach nothing about financial responsibility and education. Probably because they know if people are financially literate, paying an offering before depositing into a savings account makes no sense.

        Dirtychai you are so right. Only in some of our communities where they preach to pay tithes but what about your food money the minute a congregation member falls on hard time they will ask for their blood type before some churches offer assistance.

          Ajavee, tithing is one of the biggest lies the church has ever told. People do not understand what it’s all about, so they continue to be fooled into giving their money even if they can’t pay their rent or put food on their tables. What’s more, they make people feel guilty into paying tithes. That is not God’s way.

        that and they always forget to tell them that donating 10% of your GROSS income is way more than donating 10% of what you have left after you make sure your bills are paid. if you living below the poverty line, you can’t afford for a quarter of your pretax dollars to be going to a man that is well off enough to jet set so hard that he blew a whole engine & needs a whole new plane to replace it.

      the biggest lie ever fed to the poor is hope. these motivational speakers/pastors go around the country making millions of dollars “teaching” folks the secrets to life meanwhile none of them see that they are doomed to stay poor so long as they keep giving their money to folks that can’t guarantee anything they selling on the pulpit. ask one member what they’ve learned besides believing they’ll be prosperous in the future & few will have much to say. that’s the dirty little secret of religion. the promise of a better life is like a dangling carrot that has no expiration date & no end goal in sight.

    As much as I would like to vilify Creflo and his ilk, I cannot. There is just no shortage of stupid people and if they choose to give their money to Creflo hoping it brings them salvation then what can any of us say to change that?
    The truth is if they were not giving their money to Creflo they would be giving it someone else for something none of us here critiquing would be able to rationalize. We all know that if Creflo was gone tomorrow there would be a multiple of hustlers ready to take his place overnight. There is a lot of us out here in search of direction hoping for someone to define for us a purpose. Creflo and his kind no matter what many of us may think of him are meeting a need. We may disagree with the quality of his product but apparently whatever he is peddling is of great value to some.

      Rastaman, there are many brainwashed, ignorant people in the world. Jim Jones promised his congregation a lot as well. David Koresh did too, but we both see the end of all those people who followed who they thought was going to change their lives. There are many wolves in sheep’s clothing, and to me, if Creflo wants to reach people, he can do it via the airwaves.

      If those people want to fund his jet, that’s their volition, but I feel bad for those who follow man.

    I don’t attend Creflo Dollar’s church. I have never listen to his sermons. I have my own religious belief and I’m happy with it. However, I’m trying to understand the big uproar. Why is it OK for rappers, movie stars, and athletes to live a luxurious life, but preachers cannot? It seems to me that he’s being honest with his congregation. He is not telling them he’s going to use the money to feed the poor. He’s going to use the money to travel and preach to people who want’s to listen to him.

    Why is it immoral for his congregation to give him money to buy a jet; but its not immoral for people to make rappers, CEO’s, movie stars, and other people rich?

      Objection, to me, there’s nothing wrong with pastors being prosperous; however, greed is not Biblical. I don’t know anything about Atlanta, but according to the author of this story, the church is in one of the poorest neighborhoods in ATL, so what is he doing for them? My point is that pastors cannot use people for their own selfish reasons. I’m sorry, but if he wants to reach people for the gospel, he has the money to do it on air. He’s being greedy, and many of these people are using their hard-earned money to support his opulence. That is not the example that Jesus gives. In fact, He was poor, but he did what he could to reach the masses, even on foot.

      That’s my take on it.

      P.S. As far as rappers and the rest of them, their purpose is not the gospel, but their own selfish desires. That, to me, is not the purpose of a pastor.

        I live in Atlanta also. I don’t know if Creflo Dollar has done anything for the poor in College Park. Does the author know for certain Creflo Dollar doesn’t do anything for the poor? The people are not poor in College Park because of Creflo Dollar. Also, I don’t think any God would support capitalism, do you? Do you think Jesus supports capitalism? It seems to me the author is blaming Creflo Dollar for a problem he didn’t create. The problem is capitalism, not Creflo Dollar.

        P.S. As far as rappers and the rest of them, their purpose is not the gospel, but their own selfish desires. That, to me, is not the purpose of a pastor.

        This is where I’m confused. I thought God’s rules about greed applied to all mankind. Pastors aren’t the only people who shouldn’t be greedy. We only apply the rules to pastors, we allow other people a pass.

          Objection, I understand many of the points you’ve made. Let me just say that greed is evil. The Bible says, “The LOVE of money is the root of all evil,” and a person cannot worship money (mammon) and God. So, to me, anyone who makes money their god is what that applies to whether it be rappers, preachers, or anyone else.

          Also let me add, the Bible states that pastors and teachers are held to a higher level because they are supposed to be examples. No, capitalism didn’t start with Creflo, but he’s feeding the beast. He has no right asking people for a dang jet when he’s raking in millions and pocketing it. I’m sure his house isn’t modest, and I’m sure the cars he drives aren’t hoopties. Again, I’m not saying that being rich is bad, but it’s how people use their money.

          I don’t know if Creflo is helping the poor, only God know that, and ultimately, He is who Creflo will be accountable to.

      Because the money that rappers, athletes, and movie stars bring in is from people buying products and paying to see them perform. The money pastors make comes directly from people giving them money – and the pastors encourage their adherents to give them money so that they will become prosperous. Why should his adherents care that he wants a fancy expensive jet to spread the Gospel internationally? If I’m tithing to a church the pastor’s obligation is to me, on Sundays; if he wants to travel the world and speak – and rake in money doing so – he need to buy the jet on his own funds.

    This situation revolves around many issues. Creflo Dollar is not the only one who believes in the prosperity gospel. Murdoch, Osteen, and other follow the prosperity gospel faithfully. I disagree with that gospel for many reasons. How much wealth one has is not necessarily a sign of how much spirituality, morality, or ethics that one has. Many moral and spiritual traditions have shown the evilness of greed. There is nothing wrong with having money legitimately. The problem is when some pastor claim that being poor is a product of a curse from God or being rich is someone a sign of God’s favor. Those retrograde teachings are wrong, because a rich spiritual man and a poor spiritual man are equal in human value. All people are created equal irrespective of their wealth, their gender, their class, or their background.

    Jesus wasn’t a rich man. According to the NT, Yeshua had thrown the money changers out of the Temple. We should fight poverty, but we don’t fight poverty by some sending money to cause Creflo Dollar to own a jet. If Dollar wants to get a jet, then he can be a man and use his own resources to buy himself a jet (or buy a regular plane). Yet, this issue is bigger than Creflo Dollar. The greed from Wall Street and from the capitalistic system is one reason why the great recession of the 21st century existed in the first place. Many megachurches act more like religious casino instead of standing up for social justice.

    Back in the day, religious Christians stood up against the Roman Empire. They faced lions and crucifixion because they wanted to express their religious faith, they wanted to oppose the brutality of the gladiator games, and they wanted to be free to worship God as they see it. Today, there has been an infiltration of many churches by corporate elitists who want materialism, greed, imperialism, and other forms of spiritual deception to be the order of the day instead of human enlightenment, soul transformation, and human justice. Spirituality deals with the enrichment of the mind, the body, the soul, and the spirit. True people will use positive action to not only help the poor, but to fight the injustices found in society. Revolutionary change is needed to rectify problems in the world.

    1st thing i wanna address: even if this was the world’s worst sin, why the language? if you had the opportunity to state your feelings directly to creflo, is that how you would make your point? if a member of your church came to you after he made his request on sunday, is this how you would persuade their decision? with a bunch of bleeped out text? why does this upset you this much?

    2nd thing i’ll address: one engine goes out, buy a new engine, not a new plane. the logic of this fundraiser fails the sniff test. i’m sure the goal is to make a “humble” request with the hopes of being “blessed abundantly”, but there should be some objective thinkers among his congregation that can see the hidden agenda. like the author though, i don’t think they’ll sway the donation receipts nor spending.

    last thing i’ll address: i agree with the poster that said there’s nothing wrong with pastors being able to live well. but i also think this world is too full of people who profit off the lowest of us. creflo is not planning on donating any air miles to his donors, just like entertainers don’t break any of their fans off with perks for being loyal. that’s why it’s up to us to be unapologetic about spending our money wisely & that includes how we spend our donation money. helping creflo get a plane is not & never will be on my agenda b/c he’s more than capable of flying first class at much lower costs (plus i’m not part of his church or religion). my charity is dedicated to those in need, not those in want.

    This is part of the great apostasy. These prosperity preachers are even worse in Africa. They are literal leeches there. Why not try to preach this feel good, prosperity “gospel” to Christians being jailed, bombed and ostracized for what they believe in? Oh right….

    Jesus picked the twelve disciples and commissioned them to go and tell the greatest story ever told, how Jesus Christ died a cruel death on Calvary for the sins of the world. What might appear remarkable to some is that there was no ‘big budget’ plan, no private jets, no T.V. stations to promote the events, no traditional or digital media, no T.V. Specials. In the natural world we would say about all of this, that it’s a recipe for disaster. It couldn’t possibly work.

    But these men, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, wrote the four gospels. John wrote Revelation and Paul wrote two thirds of the New Testament. All of this is still being read today by Christians in the Christian church worldwide. So what do these men have that we don’t have in the Christian world now? The answer is quite simply…. the anointing and dedication to the Love of Jesus Christ ….. and it works, obviously.

    The problem in the church today is that the belief is that they must have large auditoriums, packed to bursting, with attendees praying for revival for the world. The point that is clearly being missed at these convivial gatherings of church Pastors, Assistant Pastors and Christian leaders is… God Has already sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on Calvary…. and He’s NOT going to do anything else.

    It has not yet dawned on the church that they need first a revival of the heart and not of the head for His harvest to be brought in. We pray about the harvest. We talk about the harvest. We sing and dance about the harvest… but though the fields are ripe there is still no harvest.

    So what do we do? Certainly, we do not need bigger and bigger supersonic jets. We don’t need big budget plans. We just need the anointing of God and the dedication that these disciples manifested because they DID bring in the harvest – with nothing.

    It is time to stop singing and go out and preach the true Gospel and that is Christ and Him Crucified, in your own church and your own town. Bring to your church, for a change, the people who do NOT know Jesus and this could include your brothers and sisters in your own home.

    Stop getting fat on Pastor’s teachings which in many cases are not based on the Word of God but on the precepts of mens teachings about the acquisition of material gain.

    We must stop talking endlessly about these prosperity gospels. We are not against them but they are saturating the airwaves, on radio, T.V., the Internet, all media – continuously begging for donations – apparently for revival. How come the disciples never had any personal wealth? They brought in one of the greatest harvests ever and one that still reverberates ‘till this very day.

    Creflo is a disgrace and so are the other so called preachers that are getting rich behind the pulpit. Jesus was the greatest minister to walk the earth and he literally walked from city to city spreading the word of God. The arrogance of these people is totally unbelievable Jesus wasn’t rich but folks like Creflo think they should live better than Christ. It’s sad that so many folks fall for this type of bullshite. Hopefully those that have been bamboozled by this clown will finally see the light.
