Creflo Dollar, the televangelist con man who has become staggeringly rich by fleecing his credulous flock, says there’s no such thing as the prosperity gospel and that he isn’t really filthy rich because all of the money he has really belongs to God.
After coming under fire for asking 200,000 people to donate $300 or more each to raise $65 million to help his ministry purchase a luxury jet last month, popular televangelist Creflo Dollar, who is widely reported to be worth an estimated $27 million, has declared that “there is no such thing as the prosperity gospel” and the money in his pocket belongs to God.
“When we talk about prosperity, and people say it’s the prosperity gospel, there is no such thing as the prosperity gospel, it’s the gospel of grace. The money in my pocket is not mine, it’s God’s,” said Dollar, in a promotional clip for an episode of “Your World With Creflo” where he speaks with pastor Gregory Dickow of Life Changers International Church.“It came from Him. He is the source behind everything we have that is good. He loves to be trusted; He loves to be the one that you lean on. He loves to be the one that you rely on and He wants to be the one that you lean on and rely on first,” continued Dollar in the clip.
Well that’s damn convenient for you, isn’t it? And yet, according to your own fucked up theology, if you’d give that money away, God would give it back to you a hundred fold and you’d have even more of God’s money to buy mansions and private jets with. The fact that you don’t shows that you know you’re full of shit.
