Creflo Dollar launches appeal to buy $65 million private plane for evangelism
American televangelist and leader of World Changers Church International Creflo Dollar is calling for supporters to help him buy a $65 million plane for his evangelistic world travel.
His ministry has launched an appeal called Project G650, the name of the high-specification plane he is hoping to buy. The appeal website suggests that 200,000 people could commit to giving $300 or more to fund the project.
After reading another news headline here at SA about Google using balloons for their service, I thought maybe it would be more economical for Dollar to do the same. And I remember another news item was about another TV preacher who was killed in a plane crash in the Bahamas. I think these prosperity preachers are a typical American occurrence. Yes, there is a Sun Myung Moon from South Korea, but I think he learned it from American sources. Self-help books make up a very large segment of a bookstore in America, and our newspapers are also filled with 'news you can use' on health, finance, etc. Even Christian bookstores have sections dedicated to self-help. Learning the fine points of Arianism vs Calvinism does not hold a candle to a book on 10 steps to financial freedom or 40 days to a better marriage.
actually they say he was embarrassed to stop the advertisement? I have hard time believing that. [URL=www.theparadigmng.com/?p=29746]]]Public Outrage Forced Flamboyant Pastor Creflo Dollar To Cancel Fundraiser For $65m Private Luxury Jet[/URL]
If Creflo Dollar took just a dollar of his own money and then ask God to double it every day for 30 days in his prosperity ministry, then after the 30 days, he would have enough money to buy more than 10 of the planes he wants to have. But, I guess he won't fall for his own con game. Only a fool would give to this charlatan. And, yes there was a time in my Christian walk that I gave to folks just like him. I remember one time before Jim Bakker was arrested that I sent him 300 dollars and that was during a time when 300 dollars was a lot of money in my life. I have confessed that so the Lord has forgiven me and cleansed me from all unrighteousness.
Oh, I hope my math was correct. If not, let me know.
Aaaww poor Creflo. C'mon you rich folks out there help Creflo to preach the word of ... eh word of???
What is it Creflo preaches?? Oh yea prosperity.
"Prosperity theology teaches that Christians are entitled to well-being and, because physical and spiritual realities are seen as one inseparable reality, this is interpreted as physical health and economic prosperity. Teachers of the doctrine focus on personal empowerment, promoting a positive view of the spirit and body. They maintain that Christians have been given power over creation because they are made in the image of God and teach that positive confession allows Christians to exercise dominion over their souls and material objects around them. Leaders of the movement view the atonement as providing for the alleviation of sickness, poverty, and spiritual corruption; poverty and illness are cast as curses which can be broken by faith and righteous actions" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prosperity_theology
Well, they aren't giving away planes for free, and his plane isn't safe to fly around anymore. The only question is whether or not you feel that his ministry is private plane worthy. I'm not really for Mr. Dollar, so I wouldn't be one to donate money for it.
I saw Jesse Duplantis upgrading his plane using this reasoning "..if the Holy Ghost breaks out in another country I need to be able to get there before He stops moving. " Snake in the grass. He is a puppet of another snake called Kennrth Copeland who is currently in negotiations with the pope to bring the Pentecostal movement under the umbrella of Rome. It is rumored to happen on the 500th anniversary of Luther nailing the challenge to the door.
