Creflo Dollar to get $70 million Gulfstream jet

In March, pastor and televangelist Creflo Dollar of Atlanta-based World Changers Church International made national news because of a crowd funding request. The request was for money to purchase Dollar a new jet with a price tag that was close to $70 million. Dollar’s request garnered widespread criticism from a range of critics who felt it smacked of an attempt to “pimp” the people of faith. World Changers Church International subsequently closed the crowd funding campaign and very little was heard from the organization about the requested jet.
Now World Changers has announced that it will move forward with the purchase of a new jet for Dollar. The organization released a statement which said in part, “We plan to acquire a Gulfstream G650 because it is the best, and it is a reflection of the level of excellence at which this organization chooses to operate. We, the World Changers family, so value the lives, the safety and the well-being of our pastors and leaders that we wish to provide to them the best air travel experience possible….”

Even though Dollar wants the jet, getting it soon is going to be an issue.  According to a sales director from Gulfstream, they have a backlog of orders for the jet through the beginning of 2018. Since 2013 when the jet was first available, only about 50 jets have been delivered annually.

    If you’re dumb enough to equate Christianity with this man, then have at it. This man, nor his organization in any way represents Christianity or the Judeo-Christian God.

      Based on what? Why is someone dumb to follow him. Just because you don’t approve of his teaching, others do.

      We live in America and we follow what ever religion we choose.

      You just made a — DUMB COMMENT!

        That’s your opinion. My comment stands without calling your comment dumb. He/she who gets mad and resorts to terms like ‘dumb’ betrays their intelligence. Enjoy your life young’n.

          If you believe that, great…but my belief is you don’t knock someone else’s religion. Unless you want to hear how they feel about you/your religion.

            Sorry to have to inform you, Nigg.Newton, but my freedom of speech trumps your sensitivities about your favorite fairy tale. Religion will ALWAYS be the target of ridicule, because all religion is ridiculous! You believe what you want, but don’t expect, and especially don’t DEMAND that I refrain from making fun of fools who believe nonsense.

      I disagree. This charlatan is a PERFECT example of religiosity in all its phony glory. He is an excellent con-man of the sort that can make the most of the illusions and delusions of religion. His “flock” WANTS to be fleeced, so let him fleece them! God works in mysterious ways!

    …and black people wonder why most are in a state of financial ruin. Ex. Black women being worth $5 (I wonder who the biggest church tithers are?)

    I am a devoted believer in Christ. Does his ministry know how many people that kind of money would help. Education grants, housing, feeding the hungry, reading and math programs for disadvantaged children. All I know is this is a conversation that Mr Dollar will have with his Creator. I don’t understand how his ministry could feel good about this.

    trust me he was on that list way before they announced they made up that story so to throw off the millions of people who payed for it . lol cleaver right ? they want you to think they musterded up the money to get it , they did loan against the church and tithe money to get it .. and got plenty more left over i bet , these churches are rachett by the day … some of the church fires down south were set by the pasters and church board and owner to get the money they get from insuranc and rebuild a church with . trust me they know how to do it …
