650 Dollar Gulf Stream Airplane
Over time we have witnessed pastors becoming more and more greedy. They are skillful at manipulating their congregation and find ever scripture in the bible to convince them to sow monetary seeds. That is not a bad thing if the people themselves were benefiting from the fruits of these seeds. The problem is they sow the seeds and the pastors reap the fruit and they make themselves richer while their congregation remain poor.
Creflo Dollar’s request that 200,000 thousand people each sow a $300 seed for him to acquire a Gulf-stream G650 airplane show the level of greed that exist in the church. People like Creflo Dollar have a sense of entitlement and they are so caught up with their own selfish wants that they become blinded to the needs of others. They proclaim to teach the word of God but they need to stop and ask themselves is this something that Jesus would have done?
How about raising the money to build houses for the poor, provide college funds for those who have the potential but not the funds to go to college. How about helping to feed the millions around the world who are starving. How about providing clean water to countries whose people still do not having running water. How about helping others instead of wanting to live this life of luxury that makes you feel that travelling in a commercial plane is not for you and you need your own private Jet. I am all for Creflo Dollar owning his sixty-five million dollar jet but he needs to buy it with his own money.
Matthew 24:Verse 24 give us a warning on what to expect it says:
For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
Again in Luke 18:25 Jesus said;
“Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
I believe many pastors start out with good intentions but along the way become so overcome with greed that they lose their way and they become captives of money. They thirst for it and that thirst is never satisfied.
