Jesus rode a donkey, why does Creflo Dollar need a $65M jet?

Creflo-Dollar

Jesus Christ, arguably the most renowned biblical figure, traveled by foot, boat and donkey. Granted in the ancient world, those were the most common modes of travel. But despite the fact that he didn’t travel in a craft that moved faster than the the speed of light, his name launched a religion and 2,000 years later his name is recognized throughout the world and his followers are legion. Including, presumably, Dr. Creflo Dollar.

So why does Dollar, leader of World Changers Church International, a multifarious global ministry, need a 65-million-dollar Gulfstream G650?

Reportedly, his current jet is old and has had a number of mechanical issues, including engine failure during a flight to Australia, although the flight did conclude without further incident and the pilot was able to land safely. After that scare, the plane had another problem and skidded off a runway. Wait. He let his family fly in that deathtrap after it lost an engine? Who does that? Not Jesus. Not a man who purports to be concerned about the age of a plane that has had multiple problems. Better to buy an airline ticket than take that kind of risk.

Dollar is well-known for his prosperity gospel. The appeal to his followers to give so the good reverend can receive bears that out. The copy for the Project G650 Campaign reads “… 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.”

Jesus blanketed the globe with his message wearing a pair of sandals.

Jesus was well-known for sharing the Gospel. And his mission statement doesn’t seem to quite gibe with Dollar’s philosophy, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)

There’s no disputing the tremendous amount of good that World Changers is doing locally and globally. The only question is does that good justify a luxury jet funded by the people? How much more could Dollar accomplish by plunging that money into programs the church is already supporting?

One came that people would have life to the full; the other seems bent on squeezing the lifeblood out of people.

Good for Dollar if he wants and can afford the finer things in life, including a G650. But he shouldn’t ask his followers to pay for it. That’s just not what Jesus would do.

    the bible says it will be earier for a camel to pas through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to make it to the kingdom … so excuse me i dont want to be rich , and on top of that using riches to insult the work of god , and the teaching of the bible ,a rich man uses money to be rich ., not to help no one .. wold in sheep linin .. i mean dollar has a bad reputation you know his friends are bishop eddie long and bebe winan, donnie mcclurkin all out of atlanta a very gay man paradise daffy duck is nothing but a cover up beard for him . and he is a shepard of no good . he should really be careful lieing about his mission . your right god wore sandels and saved millions , and he nets a million dollar jet ?
    he knows he is pissing mainstream off and some ignorant church members of his will look up to the sky and realize its a cloud there .. some people need to be lead by fools .. not me .. and not you

THAT WORD ALONG IS GODS SIGN TO YOU OF WHO YOU DEALING WITH .. HIS CURES IS HIS NAME ..

      The blessing of the LORD, it maketh you rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22
      A Christian suppose to be rich and prosperous. You are so ignorant of God’s word. You are truly the antichrist. Stay broke and ignorant

    Jesus rode a donkey? is that the best you got? So is that what modern man is suppose to ride when they’re preaching the gospel say across the pond? Asia? Africa? This sounds so ridiculous. And its the reason why Christians are broke esp black Christians who can point out 50-11 million scriptures on being poor, yet none seem to care that the same bible was used to legitimize slavery WITH scripture. And I’m a Christian WITH SOME PERSPECTIVE on how the bible was used particularly with black slaves as this country was colonized with the sweet puritan ethic of hard work and sacrifice for HEAVENLY riches.

    Money is merely currency. Its an exchange based on perceived value. For instance, the US dollar was once backed by gold, today its barely worth the paper its printed on. It only has the value we GIVE to it. Wealth to me is the great equalizer. Its a tool to do greater good, of which I believe Dollar is doing and seeks to do more of efficiently with a plane.

    • Laura Lee on March 26, 2015 at 6:39 am

      Creflo Dollar is not preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. He’s preaching the false gospel of Word of Faith that says Jesus was a man who became God by dying and was born-again in hell… became God in hell… so that men could become God like this false Jesus. So, what are you talking about saying he’s using a plane to share the gospel?? He’s not.

      • Tiffany on March 30, 2015 at 7:53 pm

        oh yes, i forgot you know him. Or perhaps you’ve decided biblically perhaps that a gospel can’t be preached overseas via a jet???

  3. Tiffany on March 16, 2015 at 7:42 pm

    seriously, some of us need to stop regurgitating the same old tired shyt we got from our momma’s, momma’s, mommma’s, momma’s….many of which were slaves. Seek understanding. READ, THINK and CREATE with an open mind. NEWS FLASH….WE FREE NOW!!!!!…we can stop thinking like slaves.

  4. REALSOUL4 on March 16, 2015 at 7:45 pm

    His actions show that he’s not a man of “GOD”…he’s a man of “GREED”.

    • cj on March 18, 2015 at 2:34 pm

      So what is a man of God realsoul4. Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell me what is a man of God.

      Have you ever met him to judge him??? Are you a man of God yourself?

      The word of God says
      In the name of Jesus, I declare that I am the righteousness of God. I
      have been released from the bondage of sin and I am free to exercise my rights as a born-again believer. I have a right to prosper in every area of life.
      The Word of God is my guarantee that I can speak as God speaks and call into existence everything that I need to succeed. I take authority over
      sickness, disease, poverty and insufficiency, and I rule as a king in
      life!

      For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Ephesians 2:8

      • REALSOUL4 on March 18, 2015 at 10:37 pm

        A man of “GOD” is not “Deceptive”. Prosper doesn’t mean cheating or being deceptive in gaining anything…prosper is not always “Money”!

    • cj on March 18, 2015 at 2:37 pm

      Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper(materially) and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:2
      It’s God’s will for us to prosper so you are ignorant to the word of God. So if you want to stay poor Stay poor but I am rich and prosperous and me and Dr. Creflo Dollar could care less what you think. Stay broke busted and disgusted.

      • REALSOUL4 on March 18, 2015 at 10:45 pm

        I’m not your “Beloved”…I have prosper in love, joy, peace, good health, wisdom, I don’t need material things to be prosperous…remember that! You’re spiritually blinded…how can you speak for someone else? Creflo don’t know you, hiding behind a blank photo…go find you a face before you try and speak for others. You’re a “FAKE”!

  5. REALSOUL4 on March 16, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    Jesus rode a donkey because he was humble, he wasn’t looking for riches, he was looking to save “SOULS”. You can’t serves two “GOD”….”MONEY’ is a “GOD” to many, either you are serving The “Almighty GOD” or you are serving to gain “MONEY” who is their “GOD” and they will do anything to get it. Deception is alive!

    • Tiffany on March 16, 2015 at 8:16 pm

      not quite…. A donkey did symbolize means. And like I wrote above Jesus rode one because it was a neutral symbol. Kings rode tricked out war horses which meant domination, power and …WARE. A donkey represented that Jesus came in peace.

      • REALSOUL4 on March 16, 2015 at 9:04 pm

        Yes, I know that there were figures in the bible that were wealthy not in currency though…they were rich in live stocks, wheat, grain and other things to survive. There are many different riches, it’s not always money, I’m rich in wisdom. It’s the love of money, that cause man to do evil and they will kill, lie or what ever it take to get it.

        • Tiffany on March 16, 2015 at 9:11 pm

          “..they were rich in live stocks, wheat, grain and other things to survive”….err…that was a form of exchange as in CURRENCY. Fish, produce and livestock was the dollar of the day. A form or medium of exchange doesn’t have to have a US dead president on it to be currency. ANY exchange is currency. In fact, we see the death of the physical dollar right now and other forms of currency taking a stronghold in America like bartering, trading goods for services, services for services…thats all a form of currency.

          • REALSOUL4 on March 17, 2015 at 8:59 am

            Well, why do they call it “CURRENCY”? That was the beginning of all evil….man made. It’s service, not currency…get it right now. That’s your opinion and I have my opinion, you believe what you want to believe and let me believe what I want to believe…have a good day!



          • Tiffany on March 17, 2015 at 9:30 am

            Look it up. Currency does NOT just mean 21st century money. Currency derives from the word CURRENT as in electricity as in ENERGY. Biblical figures weren’t walking around with dollar bills back in the day. And soon we won’t be either. I know someone who is storing precious metals (gold/silver) because he thinks the dollar will collapse soon. Guess what…THATs currency..the same that existed in biblical times. You have a great day too…and please read more.



          • REALSOUL4 on March 17, 2015 at 9:37 am

            Thanks….I read everyday before my day begin, the word of “GOD” is my “LIFE”.



          • Tiffany on March 17, 2015 at 10:00 am

            that’s great.



          • REALSOUL4 on March 17, 2015 at 11:04 am

            I know…I see you read also and that’s great. My trust and faith is in “GOD” and not man. Man is deceptive but “GOD” is the same everyday, he don’t change, he’s the same today, yesterday and tomorrow. It was a pleasure sharing the word of “GOD” with you…stay prayed “UP”.



          • PDN on March 17, 2015 at 12:20 pm

            you and tiffany needs to stop the bickering. That kind of bickering is a derivative from your ancestors being enslaved and being forced to fight each other. Creflo Dollar is nothing more than a money grabber who is living large in Atlanta and majority of his members live from hand to mouth and when they need some financial assistance they wont be able to get it from him.



          • REALSOUL4 on March 17, 2015 at 12:52 pm

            We’re not bickering….we’re having a intelligent discussion. Get you some business.



          • honeybutter on March 17, 2015 at 4:27 pm

            thank you thats it simplified , he is living rich , he was not born with weathy when he started preaching he probably started from a basement or small store front like td jakes did, these men are elaborate businesss men turning church into a business as though its a KFC .. franchising selling cds tapes and flying jets like they are jayz …. its sad . that , every man and woman on this earth want to be rich .. why do you think the lottery was buitlt it capitolizes off of our insatioable thirst to be wealthy



          • honeybutter on March 17, 2015 at 4:24 pm

            do you really know god? if you did you would not be lieing about the fact you do know him , i pray you do cause a snake will have his head severed sooner or later and his tongue slashed for lieing



          • REALSOUL4 on March 17, 2015 at 4:37 pm

            Learn how to spell and don’t worry about me knowing “GOD”! Can you do that? It’s “LYING” and not “LIEING”….RE RE! Handle your spelling and then get back with me….LOL



          • REALSOUL4 on March 17, 2015 at 4:42 pm

            Who are you to judge me? Your another human being that’s angry because you got “CHECKED”…now run alone! “DONKEYBUTTER”!



          • honeybutter on March 17, 2015 at 4:23 pm

            the word of god is your life? , yet you sit up on line cursing and yell at people about a comment against your lies? you are delusional at the most , i wonder how you slip throught the loop .? of emotional stable meds ? or do you actually have a cabinet full of medication . and just do this on line ranting for theraputic reason or else you would world a knife at someone . lol .. your a nut now using god to explain that your normal weirdo



          • REALSOUL4 on March 17, 2015 at 4:32 pm

            ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…do you hear “CRICKETS”?? First, I’m a human being and never stated, I’m “PERFECT”! You loose again…go back underneath your “ROCK”…..Donkeybutter! Lmao!



    • PDN on March 17, 2015 at 12:15 pm

      The love of money is the root of all evil.

  6. honeybutter on March 17, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    WHY DO YOU THINK MAN CREATED THE LOTTERY ??? be cause they found a way to capitolize off of our thirst for instatiable wealth in this world ., rich folks lived before christ , queen of egypt, king solomon, midas and all of them were rich thats nothing new . did they use the poor to get there i dont know ,but i know this .. CHRISITIANTY GOT OVER 200 different religiions from worshiping sheep to pigs , to snakes to non denomination , catholic , etc if you notice they all created a protocal to be a member . religion is like a club you dont pay club fees your out., catholic church use man calling him a pop yet people worship him like he jesus walking the earth . and the catholic church has men who molest boys , creflo dollar , bishop eddie long , and a few other are questionable ., if you remember black folks learned about religion from a slave owner who used it to mind wash us from the truth ., we use to see god as white , and we were told white were the chosen people of christ as though jesus, was racist …. today we are no longer slaves yet BLACK FOLKS STILL HAVE A SLAVE MENTALITY .. ONE NEIGHBORHOOD IN ATLANTA HAS 40 black churches . no one find that odd ? if your not gay and ashame your in church with a down low gay brother ?
    people sit up in church praising and rocking , and holly ghost hopping and most are just scared of death , they dont know … at a young age , our brain washed parents start taking us to church with no real knowlege of god or jesus or teachings .and by the type the brain washing minsters get you your SEASONED READY , TO ACCEPT WHAT EVER THEY SAY CAUSE GRAND MA WAS A CHRISTIAN SHE WENT TO THAT CHURCH AND WHAT? he died of heart failure the minister couldnt save her or pay for heart surgery after she spent 20 years in the church ? an hundreds of dollars ? in that plate />?

    so my moral is if you believe in the following of these $400 dollar flashing bible thumipng pimps then your are delusional and will die a lost soul lead by satans sons. . … td jakes and alll of them , joel olsteen and i like him, but i question his packing of a church that big not much overhead and he is the one rich and living in the mega house flying in his own plane etc .. all of them got planes ? joyce myers too .she is a good motivational speaker but does she really know gods will ?
    if i go to hell for bashing them so be it .. .i believe in jesus of nazareth how do i know him my spirit is my teacher .. you have to have fatih in this world

    BUT THIERE IS A SUCH THING AS BLIND FAITH TOO .. YOU CAN BE A VICTIM IF YOUR SITTING UP IN A MEGA CHURCH DROPIING MONEY IN THAT PLATE … SHOULD GOD FOR GIVE YOU ? THATS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR MAKER FOR SURE … IM GOOD

  7. honeybutter on March 17, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    i saw a woman speaking in tongue on face book she was excited about the fact she saved a woman who was at walmart suffering a seizure she said she went over and prayed for the woman and the woman come back around a few seconds latter she was explaining what happen in her car, she was around 24, she said she saw a miracle god saved this woman in front of her eyes cause she prayed ..ummmm this is what i mean example doctors save people all day on the operating room..and they didnt pray they just did what had to be done to save them . im sure the family was praying but do you know how many familys sit in the waitng room and pray their eyes out and the person still die ,then the christians say oh well it was her time god called her or him . ..>>>?/?? my point is your born you die . . .your born you die …. from there you met god not jesus but the creation who created this world . yes i pray and i hope god is listening but im not gonna ask god to do what may not be in his will and then take credit cause i prayed ….. god people are just stupid and desperat for truth about faith ……..
    relax yall the truth is in your mirror god giveth life and he take it away . just as fast .. when your laying on that bed an its your last day ONLY THEN WILL YOU GET IT . ONLY THEN …………… SO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLIEST THIS IS A PASSING THROUGH A PATH . TO GO WHERE WE COME FROM

    Wow why are you all attacking this man: but its OK that Warren Buffett and Bill Gates Tyler Perry and Jay Z they can all have a private jet but Dr. Creflo Dollar.

    • REALSOUL4 on March 21, 2015 at 1:36 pm

      Those other wealthy people you mention are not using the word of “GOD” to profit…that’s why?
