The false prosperity gospel takes a new turn as 53-yr-old televangelist Creflo Dollar of World Changers Ministries wants 200,000 people to bless him with a brand new G6. Dollar is running an online crowdfunding campaign hoping that you will be
stupid generous enough to donate toward $65 million he needs for the super luxury jet that will help him spread the “gospel.”
If each person donates $300 or more, Dollar expects to reach his goal. In his online announcement, he refers to the millions who have yet to hear about Jesus that he wants to reach by using his new G6 to replace an old jet his ministry bought in 1999. According to the FAA, Dollar’s current jet was also used to get him to his various vacation spots, such as Las Vegas, Miami, and Hawaii.
So hurry before it’s too late and God will grant you a super-special blessing–SMH.

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you … And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you… 2 Peter 2
Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample [example] unto you to follow us. 2 Thessalonians 3
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have… Hebrews 13
