Poor Creflo Dollar. All he wanted was what every small town preacher wants, a Gulfstream G650 private jet. I mean, you can’t expect him to merely fly commercial first class, can you? And now he says that he didn’t get it because that damn devil interfered with him chasing his dreams.
“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. You can’t stop me from dreaming. I’m gon’ dream until Jesus comes,” Dollar preached.
Yeah, see, the thing is, you can dream all you want. But don’t expect people to pay for your dreams out of the kindness of their hearts and Social Security checks. When Jesus turned water into wine, he didn’t charge the masses for that wine. Jesus also didn’t expect them to buy him a cart pulled by seven donkeys in return. I’m quite sure that would have been the equivalent to a G650 back then.
Dollar also told his congregation that they should never let the devil block them from their dreams. If you want that big house, dream about it. If you want that new luxury car, dream about it.
“Dream about what the devil says you can’t have,” Dollar stated.
And then ask your credulous followers to pay for it. You know, like Jesus did. A few thoughts come to mind:
Matthew 6:24: “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
Luke 18:25: “For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”
Luke 12:33: “Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.”
1 Timothy 6:10: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.”
Hebrews 13:5: “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Luke 6:24: “But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.”
