Why Creflo Dollar Needs His Dollars

By John Bloom | 11/08/2007


Every time we write about Creflo Dollar we have to point out that this is not one of those fake news articles we've sometimes managed to foist onto the public, and that the name Creflo Dollar was not used by Charles Dickens to describe a wheezing barrister in a pub, nor was it invented by a heavy-handed satirist attempting to lampoon a greedy Ukrainian.

No, Creflo Dollar is a real person, one of the six televangelists who got letters from the Senate Finance Committee on Monday, asking them to send in detailed accounting statements proving that they're not converting church money to their personal use.
Creflo Dollar Posters
More specifically, Creflo Dollar is the pastor of World Changers Church International of College Park, Georgia. Presumably he chose that name himself, completely free of fear that it would be soon be better known as Money Changers Church International by the 30,000 members who weekly enrich its coffers and make it possible for Creflo to maintain the two jets—one Gulfstream 3 and one Lear—that he uses to shuttle back and forth between Madison Square Garden (where he does a Saturday night service for an audience of 6,000) and Atlanta (where he does a Sunday morning service), not to mention occasional visits to his offices in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia and Nigeria.

Creflo's wife Taffi Dollar—and here we remind you once again that we are not lapsing into fiction at any point during the creation of this article—Taffi Dollar is responsible for the household budget at the $3 million Dollar mansion in Atlanta, and the more modest $2.44 million Dollar condo overlooking Central Park in Manhattan.

Asked about the Dollar dollars by CBS News yesterday, Dollar said it was untrue that he had two Rolls-Royces (we'd actually heard it was two Rolls-Royces and one Humvee, but who's keeping track?)—that he only had one Rolls and it was given to him by his congregation as a surprise. He also said he did not give $500,000 of church funds to fellow "prosperity gospel" evangelist Kenneth Copeland on the occasion of Copeland's 40th wedding anniversary—although he did not say how much he did give—so we want to be very careful when we say that the annual budget for Dollar's operation, his overhead dollars, is about $80 million. (Note to Creflo: Get back to us if we're a little off on that number.)

The interesting aspect of this story, however, is that so many of these prosperity-gospel guys do funnel money back to Copeland in so many ways that it almost looks like a pyramid scheme. Actually that's too harsh—what it really resembles is the marketing structure of Mary Kay Cosmetics, set up so that every time a salesperson recruits another salesperson, he or she gets a cut of the commission. And the reason that all roads lead to Copeland—see our summary of Copeland's organization in the investigative cartooning feature "Lifestyles of the Rich and Religious"—is that he's the granddaddy of what goes by many names—like "positive confession"—but is most commonly called "Word Faith."

If you look for the theological origins of "Word Faith," you end up in Tulsa, of course, and specifically at RHEMA Bible College in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, which was founded by Kenneth E. "Papa" Hagin (1917-2003), the man who pretty much created the American-style health-and-wealth preaching so familiar from late-night television. Copeland was a student there, as well as at Oral Roberts University, which veers close to RHEMA in its theology but is not always on the same page. (Truth be told, every prosperity preacher is his own theology school, since part of the basis for the teaching is direct special revelation from God, which makes all these guys the heirs of the original gnostics.) But if RHEMA had a creed, it would go something like this:

  1. God's covenant with Abraham means that God has to deliver on his part of the deal, so anything you ask for in the name of Jesus, God is required to give you. (Should we quote some Janis Joplin lyrics here?)
  2. Man is equal to God in every respect. Or, in the words of Copeland, "You don't have a God in you! You are one!" (Tom Cruise would like this one.)
  3. Jesus was not the son of God, he was a man empowered by God to be just like God, and everyone who knows this can do the same thing. (We're not sure we have this one exactly right, but it's basically "Be Jesus, go ahead, He won't mind, you're soulmates.")
  4. Jesus went down into hell where he took on Satan's nature, until he was born again, and re-emerged to start the church. (Presumably they preach this one on Halloween.)
  5. Anything you speak and believe, with understanding, will come true just as you want it. (Yes, this seems like it's the same as number one, but that one is about what God has to do, and this one is about what you have to do. It's the "positive confession" part, the idea that your thought processes can command God to act.)
  6. God promises in Isaiah 53 to heal every physical illness of anyone who has faith. (As our mentor Ole Anthony once said, "Then why aren't there thousands of 200-year-old billionaires in Tulsa?")
  7. Any Christian who believes in poverty is outside God's will. (Well, take that, you cloistered loser in the hairshirt.)

There are more, but these are the biggies. I would imagine that at this point you're starting to see why taking away Creflo Dollar's dollars could amount to more than just a little lifestyle adjustment. It pretty much goes to the heart of the whole Kahuna.

I pray that you discover that worldly treasure is nothing compared to the richness of truly knowing Christ.

And a question for you to ponder - how would the Christians of the 1st few centuries react to Dollar's message? I am reminded of Lawrence - when Caeser demanded he turn over the treasury of the Church, he showed up with orphans, widows, lepers, etc. and said "These are the treasures of the Church."

The Bible says to test the spirits. To do so would require one to make a judgement on whether something is truth or not. Be careful not to lose your spiritual sensitivity to support an unbiblical theology of greed. Your caution of words accounts more to superstition than real faith....real faith tests everything by what Scripture says.

I find that most people like yourself listen more to what Crefo Dollar says that searching out the Word of God for yourself. For example: Philippians 2 makes it clear that Jesus emptied himself of all of his heavenly privilege to die the death of a bond servant. Scripture makes it clear that "birds have nests and foxes have holes, but the Son of Man had no where to lay his head". I challenge you by the Authority of Scripture to TURN OFF the television for once and read the entire Bible through in one year.

I bet you will be a different person next year.

"God does not want His Children to be broke."

I would agree, as His desire is that we be BROKEN! I pray that these ministers would learn that to be great (prosperous) in God's Kingdom, we must learn to be servant to all. (See also - greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends; and do not withhold good to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do it.)

What is "broke" when we are a "King's Kid"? - to use a term I heard frequently growing up with these W of F influences. After being a confessing sinner and a professing Christian for 11 years, I pursued the ministry in a full gospel church and Bible College. What I have unlearned from there, in the past 7 years (after 12 years of ministry), has come from re-acquainting myself with the Word and not the homilies of these "giants of the faith" who are often the most blatant in their violations of basic hermeneutics, namely, allowing scripture to interpret scripture and holding true to the context of the passage.

These ministers of the "faith" and "prosperity" gospel do a great injustice to (the cause of Christ) and the Savior who had no place to lay his head, had help from a fish to pay His taxes, and whipped the moneychangers in the temple. That last passage leads me to believe that these men and women more closely resemble either the "den of thieves" or the high priests of Christ's day. In either case, I pray for an awakening for them and that we all find a closer relationship with the Word, and that thereby we know the truth, and it(He) will set us free - especially those who have sold themselves to wealth and prosperity. Lastly, to all of us who are called by His name, may we all give out of our abundance (whatever that may be - "a widow's mite", a child's penny, etc.), for God loves a cheerful giver!

May God bless you all with the knowledge of His truth, and only enough prosperity to which you will steward it for the Kingdom of Heaven.

Wow!! that is a bold statement.
I imagine that this $300M amount is a number quoted to you by one of your "pastors".
There is obviously no reference in scripture to His monetary worth, unless you want to quote MasterCard and say "Priceless". But I am curious to know how you derived that dollar amount. Is it because of all the fine wine he produced and has the ability to produce? Is it what people would be willing to pay to view or be part of other miracles (assuming of course that Jesus did it for money, which we know is not the case).
Seriously, please read your Bible. Ask God to open your eyes, your ears, and your hearts so that you may understand what He has given us in Word and in Life. In other words, know and study the TRUTH. Don't regurgitate what someone else has summarized to you.

Oh my goodness!!!!!!! I can't believe my eyes.....please somebody tell me it ain't so! This had got to be a lost sheep from Fred Price's church...........I think it was him that said that "Jesus was worth $300 million when on the earth."

Or was Fred Price the one that said, "drink your own urine to cure alcoholism." ????

Hey dude....GOT SCRIPTURE FOR THAT $300 MILLION????

What a crock of overloaded crap!!

It never fails, you start mentioning the Bentley's, Porsches, mansions, private jets, vacation homes, seaside mansions, designer clothing, etc. you'll always have one person who whines about being broke. There is nothing wrong with making a fair and decent living, but this rock-star-lifestyle is not right!! Plus they don't have to show anyone the books, which means they are accountable to no one!

WAKE UP MAN....YOU'RE SO LOST!!

If you can't tell a crook when you see one, then you are quite naive. A true man of God could care less about the riches of this world, and strives to do God's work here to the best of his ability and means, however meager they may be. Does this describe the Grassley six? And you can have tons of money. Just be sure to share it and don't lavish it all on yourself. Right now, the entire US budget wouldn't do all that needs to be done on this earth.

"Man is equal to God in every respect." After sitting in many many hours of church services under Creflo Dollar, Kenneth Hagin, and Oral Roberts, I can guarantee that not one of them would agree with this ridiculous statement. Their theology might be off on a few issues but you have to provide some kind of evidence when making claims that they believe some of this stuff.

While that may be true I'd like to see them explain away the martyrdom/suffering/poverty of MILLIONS of Christians across the globe.white people more than every

Are they not true Christians or does God love those of European descent more than everyone else?

Does Creflo or his church own the two private jets, or are they leased on a trip by trip basis? Is he contributing to global warming by using a private jet instead of flying commerical? What are the addresses of his two homes?

Siarlys Jenkins | 10:09 pm on 11/11/2007

Jesus was worth $300 million? If Jesus had so much money, how come the apostle who kept the money bag found it worthwhile to sell Jesus out for 30 pieces of silver? Why didn't he just take the money and run?

Ashlie | 02:10 pm on 11/12/2007

Not too unsimilar to paying 8 or 9 bucks to see a lame film at the theater and supporting the lifestyles of the lame and famous. I guess we all get fooled sometimes.

fourpointer | 03:53 pm on 11/12/2007

If Jesus was worth $300 million, then why did He not have a place to lay His head (Matthew 8:20)? Why did He have to borrow a donkey (Matthew 21:1-3)? Why did He have to flag down the guy with the water pitcher and ask to use his upper room (Mark 14:13-15)?

Maybe He saved His harshest words for His mutual fund manager.

dj | 06:12 pm on 11/12/2007

Do you not reap what you sow? I am not saying that I "sow much" to be "rich" or to aquire more possesions(because I am a "greedy american" right?)I give out of true desire to help others. I am saying it takes MONEY to feed the starving kids, homeless, GIVE out compelling literature, make good music AND give it away for the furthering of God's grace, we cannot do this broke...with that being said I think it OK to BE rich if you are a good steward of that wealth, not be overly lavish but I believe there is nothing wrong with wealth, especially if you WORK for it! For the preachers, does not most of what they push is their sermons at their churches and selling messages and books? don't you think those some of the topics preached(not all is prosperity stuff) is good and may help people out there that is why they keep buying stuff? once again question their motive not intent of heart here...so what if they make money on that stuff, the question is how much money is going OUT of their ministries & life to helping others?

Charles | 11:45 am on 11/14/2007

As I read the NT (whole books, not isolated verses) I find the logic we must not "throw stones at others before examining our own lives first", missing. Paul challenged, critcized, anathemaed false teachers and apostles who corrupted the gospel. Paul called himself the "chief of sinners" yet he agressively confronted heresy (oops...I used the h word). I guess proclaiming the message "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved from the wrath of God to come" from church pulpits is passe. The new revelation from "god" to his new prophets is "God will give you a new car, new house and $23,000 (Joyce Meyer) marble crapper." I guess Mr. Dollar, Hinn, Copeland and Ms. Meyer have received new revelation to "lay up treasures for yourself on earth".

Joe-Allen Doty | 01:11 pm on 11/14/2007

Kenneth Copeland NEVER attended Kenneth E. Hagin, Sr.'s Rhema Bible Training Institute which is in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. He did, however while he was a student at Oral Roberts University, go to Hagin's still in Tulsa HQ at the time and ask for free sermon tapes and books from Hagin Sr, which he got.

--
Kenneth Copeland was married and a transfer student. Since he was a licensed pilot, he got a job of being one of the pilots for Oral Roberts and he was his driver, too. If Copeland had not been afraid to talk to Roberts and told him that he was living in poverty in a run-down place with his family and he needed financial help, Roberts might have helped him out. Copeland NEVER mentioned in any of the things which I have read or heard him say about going to Roberts for financial help. Besides, since Jesus said the laborer deserves his wages, Oral Roberts should have paid him better. In a way, it looked more like Oral Roberts was only paying him low wages and did not even know the lifestyle of his student employee.
--
It is interesting that Copeland is an ORU drop-out and a member of the ORU Board of Regents. And, George Pearsons, his son-in-law who married the daughter of Copeland's first marriage, is also an ORU drop-out and is the Chairman of the ORU Board of Regents. But, I used to know George personally when I was a grad theology student at ORU in the mid-1970s. George was at ORU to work on a 2nd BA which was in the Bible, the first was in art at a secular college, and that his how he met Copeland's oldest daughter. Copeland talked George into dropping out of ORU, telling him that he would teach him all he needed to know about the Bible.

George is the pastor of Eagle Mountain International Church which is actually the Kenneth Copeland Ministries on-site church and it was started so the KCM employees would attend church where they work. Oh, Copeland's son, John, is the CEO of KCM and he is the manager of the horse breeding ranch that is also on the KCM property on the edge of Eagle Mountain Lake south of Newark, Texas.

I don't give the Door the final word on anything, and I don't think they would want me to, but clearly the ways these pastors use the Bible is in a spirit of manipulation rather than deepening understanding of scripture
If the Door's representation of the actions and views of Copeland, Dollar, and co's are wrong, then that is a legit complaint if you ask me. But why do I want to know Kenneth Copeland's biography; the positives or the negatives? As far as it sheds light on Copeland's theology maybe, but I think that has been illuminated pretty clearly already.
Luke 9:53-56. The people there did not welcome him (Jesus), because he was heading for Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?" But Jesus turned and rebuked them, and they went to another village.

It is our unwillingness to call out this apostasy and criminally sinful handling of the word of God that allows it to continue happening!!! It needs to be exposed NOW!!! They are robbing people and lying to them; twisting the word of God to vulnerable, under educated people who cannot think for themselves people who may be earnestly trying to seek the Lord. Do you really think Jesus would buy a $23,000 toilet with your money while you struggled to pay your rent? Do you think Jesus would fly around in private jets, drive Bentleys on your grocery money? Do any of these followers find themselves with this same level of prosperity? Do a little math here, 10% of a salary in my pocket is 10% more than what I had before...10% from 10 people is another entire salary in my pocket...10% from 10,000 people is 1,000 salaries of my followers salaries in my pocket. Now I tell you to go pray, buy books, and wait for God to bless you...I didn't pray or wait, I just robbed people.

Think about it. I dare you to say 20 prayers for the next month, what about your job do you think is going to bring you 1,000 annual salaries? Are you getting my point yet?

Cynthia | 06:41 pm on 11/22/2007

Do not judge others for the standard you set for others will be the standard God will set for you. You reap what sow ~ so be careful to spend your money well and if your standard is not to expect good things from God don't worry you won't get anything. I don't these people well enough to know their finances. But be sure you don't know anything about just judging something you know nothing about. I do know that some of these evangelists give alot of time and money to other countries. What do you do probably nothing so why would God bless you. It would be a waste. If they are not being good stewards then thats God's business not yours as you have no horse in the race. But one warning I hold dear is that God says DO NOT TOUCH MY ANNOINTED ~ That is not a judgement call I dare to make. Just like everything else nothing forces me to give money or watch TV. So change your TV station and go spend you money on another drink.

In defence of Creflo, Kenneth Copeland and others, what about this? Jesus said 'give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. With the measure you use, it shall be measured back to you.'

I admit that in the past I have had doubts about the integrity of Joyce Meyer and Creflo Dollar. However I have come to realise that people like this who are criticised for their good homes and cars, often have made many sacrifices and given so much of themselves to God. We have no idea how much they have given up in obedience to God in the past, and they may very well simply be reaping the rewards of that now.

''And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and inherit eternal life'' (Matthew 19:29)

The bulk of that money comes from people with starving children at home so in that respect I guess Creflo's not that bad. God created dumb people so that guys like Cref could get rich. You better stop whining and get used to it 'cos its never going away.

BTW does anyone have Paula White's number? That chick is hot!!!

How come no one has ever heard of any rich MISSIONARIES? They lead very humble lives, risk life and limb and family to do the REAL work of God. What do these pimps tell their missionaries??? Or do they fleece them too?
