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.

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.

Yes, indeed money in christianity can be discussed a lot and no one knows what is the truth, what we know is that the God is more likely to love those who lacks money and suffers as He says that He will give everything to these people after their pphysical death...

Hello children of God,

Where to start; first let me say I mean no harm or disrespect to the people who have posted here. I hope you all find your way to God. OK that being said. Here are some basic questions I think we should all think about before posting. Do you believe in God? Do you believe is God is Your/Our Father? If he is a father what kind of father do you think he is? Do you think he is a dead-beat dad or like Most parents he is a Father who wants the best for his children? I know that in my heart he is my father who loves me and wants to shower me with the best of life.He does not want me to live in poverty because being poor leads to overwhelming stress. Overwhelming stress leads depression. Depression can (and most likely will) lead to pain in the person, in the family, and eventually early death.

Now some people on this site say that Dr. Dollar is only preaching on money that is not true he is teaching on prosperity. Let us be clear If you have a Million dollars in the bank but a sick body you are just a sick man with a million dollars in the bank, If you have a million dollars in the bank and a crazy abusive husband you are just a abused wife with a million dollars in the bank. You are not prospers in situations like this. Prosperity true prosperity is health in every aspect of your life. You have to be healthy in body, mind, spirit, and finances. I think every one on here agrees that God wants us to be Happy genuinely Happy. How can you be happy if your worried about your lights being cut off? How can you be happy if your worried about feeding your children? How can you be happy if you worried about losing your Job/ house etc?

I don't know many people that can be happy in a situation like that. So know back to the original question is God a parent that is a dead beat dad or is he a dad that wants to step in and not only save you but deliver you? People just think about it for a min; put your self in God's shoes. He is a parent that wants us his children to ......... that part you all have to figure out for your self? What does a loving parent want for there child?

Have a wonderful life each and all,

I have a friend who is so into christian celebrity preachers like
Creflo,Joyce Meyers,T.D Jakes that it is almost as they have become
her religion and her god that is it very scary.

A lot of you, obviously, need to read the bible for yourselves and develop your own relationships with the Lord. I hate to tell you that it will cost you personal prayer and supplication for wisdom. It is indeed sad that so many are listening to others telling them to do or believe and trust God for things that they claim God told them. They kind of pass the buck at your financial expense, don't they? "God told ME to win a million souls, but I need YOUR help (money)." You've heard that before, haven't you? Sure you have. Step out on your own and invest a little time in finding your own relationship with God. Stop funding these greedy corporate 'wolves in sheep's clothing.' God is graciously and patiently waiting for you to seek HIS kingdom, with all it offers, so he can reveal His plans for you and your function as a member (or organ) of the body of Christ. Be about YOUR Father's business, not some 'televangelist's.'

I just think it is disguise of racism just in a new package this kind of message and fear tactics only work on the weak minded and spiritually weak too. All of this pseudo-religion is just more schism.

Not to point out a (slight) error here, but actually "Pa" Hagin stole almost all his theology (using the term very loosely) from EW Kenon.

I hope You know God's mouth piece shall not be ridiculed. I hope for your sake, you look well into your accusations. i would rather play with a bee hive than play with Gods annointed. let not my words cause you play. i am merely letting you know, funny is funny and God is God. and God is not funny. ignorance is not funny. i feel bad for you, and the place you are at. so do pray for you now and just testify to your ignorance. not that these words mean anything to you, but i feel good giving my witness and testimony.

Wow I find it amazing that people find the time to critizize someone that take the time to study the word. If they ivested the time the would see truth. God isn't a dead beat dad. Jesus wasn't broke or homeless. But, I have notice that those who do belive that this isn't true. Just start off with a preconcede notion. Study the word for yourself an you will find that God has a order for everthing his does and said. Tell how many people in the bible that followed God was homeless, poor, inslave too...

I started checking my Bible for myself on some of the things Dollar has said and found that he twisted the Scriptures on tithing. Gentiles were not included or called Gods chosen people neither were None Jews given the Oracles and the Laws of Moses. Jews were forbidden to marry them and in Jesus day they did not even walk through Samaria or eat from any cups or bowls of Gentiles. Gentiles were called dogs because of their savage behavior and many pagan Gods. They were only grafted in after the Cross and they were crafted into a New Covenant of Grace by Faith. For Creflo to use Melchizedek who only gave a one time voluntarily tithe is not the correct example of faithful tithing. If you are not a Jew then you were outside of the Old Covenant in the first place. Every Jew is laughing at how they twist the tithe law and make it for Gentiles who were outsiders until Jesus fulfilled the law in our place. Jesus is the New and Better Covenant. He said He came for the lost sheep of Israel until His death and Resurrection then and only then did He give His disciples the great commission to go into all of the world. So this tithing business is twisting and manipulating Scriptures. They cannot find any command of Jesus after the Cross for Gentiles to tithe. Colossians 2:14-15 said he abolished the law ordinances against us, took it out of the way and nailed it to the Cross. Hebrews calls Christ a better Covenant more than 12 times.

Anonymous | 01:32 am on 10/04/2009

By the way I am not against tithing, just lying to mandate it as a law that was given to Gentiles when it was an Old Covenant law given to Jews only! There were more than 600 Mosaic Laws, why does Creflo and the Tithe Teachers only hold on to one? In Galatians Paul said to break one law of Moses means you are just as guilty as if you had broken them all. For instance in this day and age, how many crimes do you have to commit to be a law breaker? Just one. This is simple logic. Since no one could fulfill all of those hundreds of laws Jesus had to come and do it for us. We have no right standing with God apart from the finished work of Christ.
The Text you are Gods in Psalms and the Gospel of John that Jesus quoted when you go back to it's first mention applied to Judges who God gave power to rule and reign over His people for a specific purpose and time period. Mormons believe they are gods this is cult like thinking. No one is equal to God, He alone is self-existent, un-caused all powerful and present everywhere. Another thing I have heard Dollar say is to have the God kind of faith or faith like God. I pray Dollar reads this but this is the a stupid and ignorant thing to teach. God does not need to have faith. He created the universe from nothing. This did not take Faith but Power! God is the Author and Finisher of Faith. He needs nothing not even Faith! Get a clue Creflo clone like people!

Funny.
We live in a world where its okay for SOME to have, but not others.
Its okay for your fortune 500, movies stars, sports players, news casters, anyone else in the world - to "prosper" and have their prayers answered. But don't let it be someone claiming God, as their source (of all their needs).

Half the people who commented above, probably did so from their laptops or home computers, probably have iphones and digital cameras, microwaves and flat screens. They probably would accept a rolls royce or any luxury car if it was giving to them too. But don't let it be anyone else claiming God. (By the way, I'm curious why you didn't post the countless cars that he and the others like him gave away, the countless foreclosures saved, homes built or the remodeling abroad done - like in a settlement in Brazil - that's all out there too, but I'm sure that would be deemed at "suppose too" or not really being charitable, but for a good face, funny what is it called when stars do the same?)

I wonder, would you attend your Joel Olsteens, Creflo Dollar's, Mike Murdocks' and Joyce Meyers' and all the others around the world, and abroad like Ed Young, Hinn, Chin and Chang - if they were homeless on the street corner, and lived in a box, and ate from a can. And had no microphone but held service on street, every week, would you go?
Could they not be a prophet then too, but you wouldn't be there no because "you" would not see any "prophet" or "profit" in that.
I also read, FACT - not fiction with Dr. Dollar started out it was just to 8 people, 8 people... to now....

Why is that, whenever folks talk about the likes of these people, in the negative sense, its always about his car, his house, or his plane.

So?
It's "his" car, "his" house, and "his" plane.
If you didn't fund it, what do you care? I didn't fund it.
Is he the only one who has a plane? What are the others doing with there's, its okay then, for them to jet off to islands, but for him to fly and preach, its a problem, because false prophets shouldnt do that, they should be flying to the Caribbean right?

Why don't you go after the Paris Hilton's of the world, who can spend $3k, on a dog chain,.... oh wait, she's not claiming God, she's just in the world, so that's okay. But still yet she's successful, or should I say her reaping her "daddy's success."
He work hard at building up his hotel business, he sowed some seeds, that reap in a harvest within the hotel industry.
Same sowing, movie stars do in audition after audition, or play players do in practice and practice, singers in rehearsal after rehearsal - all prosperous in their own right, all reaping a harvest (and perfect) in God's sight. Let him judge, not you.
If Creflo Dollar is a hustler, than he's a successful one, because that's hell of a hustle to "sell God" to people day in an day out, I'm sure he'd rather be shopping with Paris Hilton.

Get your own plane, stay out of other people cockpit.
That's right there in your word too, find that in Proverbs.
The wisest man in the Bible was Solomon, he was rich beyond rich, then there was David, Saul, Abraham and Lot.... all were had riches. All remained humble.
I wonder if they were in this time, would they now have iphones (to reach the masses) too?
Hmmmm..... funny.

Anonymous | 07:39 pm on 10/24/2009

Wow so they preach Christians are equal or same as god. Creflo has yet to go to the Hospital in his local town and heal all of the sick, walk on water or walk thru walks. This teaching is false and dangerous. It is more similar to what the serpent told Eve she could become! When he and the other false teachings like Fred Price, Hagin Jr Duplantis, and Kenneth Copeland (although I like Copelands grandson and will watch him, comes on my TV I promptly turn it off with a quickness! This twisting of Scripture is pride and flesh (carnal)! Read your Bibles or be deceived is my best advice folks!

Anonymous | 09:20 pm on 10/24/2009

Yep, until they walk through walls and clear the hospital of all the sick in their cities they cannot boast to being even a fraction of the same as God Almighty!

This is the problem Paul clearly states that if any man preaches any other Gospel than Jesus did or Paul did let that man be accursed. Prosperity is not the gospel of Jesus Christ. Filthy Lucre and covetousness are contrary to the word of God. Maybe many of you don't know but Creflo Dollar pulled out a gun on a person in his congregation during one of his teachings and pointed it at him because the congregant said that he does not pay tithes. Creflo then pulled out a knife and pointed it at him after his demonic demonstration with a gun. I am a Police Officer and if Creflo Dollar would had pulled out a gun on me during a service I would be within my rights to eliminate the threat in front of me. The word of God states in Genesis that if a prophet says something and it does not come to pass be not afraid of him. Study your word and don't close your eyes to the obvious when it comes to Leadership. Creflo also stated that he would like to shoot everyone who isnt a tither and drag their bodies into the street. youtube Art of manipulation Pt. 18 watch it and then you decide if what he said was of god for yourself. God Bless! Believe not every Spirit but try the spirit to see whether they are of God! That's why people need the indwelling of the HolyGhost. It will teach you what's right and what's wrong.

So very happy to see he is prosperous and his wife. That is nice to know how well managed his ministry is. God is so good! God blesses his people. I am grateful for such a loving and giving God.

One of the things, I am most happy for, is the ministry of Creflo Dollar. Not to be cruel, but this man's obedience to God, by fulfilling his destiny, has blessed me and my family tremendously.
I am encouraged by God's words in ways I can never describe. I am listening to his worship ministry as I type this, and just want to fall at my knees and worship God!..so beautiful!

Nothing this world has to offer can compare..nothing is like God's touch..Nothing...
you argue about stuff...material things, they are here one day, and gone tomorrow..The good news of Christ, proclaimed by Dollar, Meyers and the rest...we be here forever!!!!!

Who cares about STUFF....if you only knew what you were missing! :)
Gotta go...God's awesome LOVE is calling...

You folks are hilarious and jealous. Creflo Dollar, Kenneth Copeland, Jesse Duplantis, Kenneth Haggin, Joyce Meyer,
Fred Price...they are all awesome children of God. Thanks for giving God glory by letting the world know all that Jesus has given to Pastor Dollar, a faithful minister of the Word of God and his beautiful wife and children. Keep taking notes God's going to do even more for him. Watch my words! Don't forget to mention the people who have been healed, families restored, etc.... thru "Money Changers" as you call it. It's called building God's kingdom! God loves you guys too. -Be Blessed.

ok let's say hypotheticaly that the ministers that are being bashed are doing wrong (God forbid) it would not matter one way or an other because the Word of God clearly speaks about tithing, and offerings to be brought to the storehouse which is your local church. You do your part, and God will surely see to it that His word comes to pass for those who believe and act on His Word.I would hate to be anyone who is using The Lord as a way to obtain wealth, by ill gotten means, or by deception.So if you are born again listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit and He will lead and guide you in your giving. So don't get upset with these ministers being prospering. Just do what you need to do, and watch God work on your behalf also.

Have you ever heard about how one person can say a statement at one end of a line of people and they try to say the same thing on down the line, only to find out how off the statement was by the time it got to the last person?

This is all a satanic ramble. The Lord's name is defiled here. How are any of you that much better than Creflo-nut? How are any of you different from the soldiers and mockers at Calvary?

Change. Start preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ and live your accordingly. Especially,live your life according to the scripture of The Book of Mark 10:17-31. I Thank You

C'mon Wittenberg, keep writing good posts like this one. Luther would highly approve and would lead us in corporate laughter, "holy laughter," and then proceed to lambast and lampoon this breed of Balaamites and Edomites.

Pray for your own souls. Keep your eyes on Jesus and in His Word. The word is a lamp unto your feel and a light unto your path. Not any of these "ministers, pastors or who so ever."

Pray for the savalation of everyone in darkness and Pray for those who process Christianity. Pray for all Leaders. That is our assignment. Not personalities. If they are in the wrong God Said' touch not my annointed and do my prophets no harm, The Lord also tells us that any one who would harm one who is "child like faith" YOU MAY AS WELL HAVE A ROPE around your neck with a stone on it, drowning...

So don't argue with each other. Pray and you do the works of the evangelist. While you are measuring yourselves among yourselves ....people are dying......<><><>

The thing is I don't understand the way Dr. Dollar runs his church. I guess him being a therapist and knowing the word is what helps him be able to talk people into giving at World Changers, and he talks his members out of wanting to shake his hand. I thought all megachurches were ran like this, but I found out differently when I went to other megachurches that there is a way for them to be sociable and shake some peoples hands, but I didn't even go down to shake their hands. It isn't something I get into, but I would like to think if I wanted to shake my pastors hand then I could. I don't think Dr. Dollar acts like a people person; he acts like a speaker that travels; because that is what do they come out and speak and you don't expect for them to shake your hand or anything.

1. I used to go to World Changers,and Dr. Dollar pushes tithing and giving, so I used to tithe to the church before paying my bills. One time I came short my rent, so I asked World Changers for help, but they refused to help me, so I had to shack up when as a christian, a christian isn't supposed to be shacking, but I had no one else to help me.

2. My husband and I needed marriage counseling at World Changers, so we ended up going to several assistant ministers, but they were unable to help us. One even got mad at me for coming in for counseling. I heard the pastor say something about a problem he had before that matched the problem my husband had. I asked for counseling with our minister Dr. Dollar and mentioned I heard him mention this problem that my husband has and I told them what it was, but Dr. Dollar refused to counsel us.

3. I thought all churches operated this way if they were big, but when I talked to friends that went to other megachurches, they said their churches didn't operate like this where the assistant ministers are the only ones to counsel the members and they said that they have shaken their pastors hand. Not that I have to meet skake a pastors hand and counsel with him, but I would like to feel that if the assistant ministers couldn't help me than I can meet with the pastor of the church, and I feel like a pastor that doesn't shake peoples hands is not a people person, and a pastor should be a people person.

4. You can't ask any questions at World Changers bible studies.

5. World Changers had a sucidal call at the end of 2009 and a lot of people went up to the alter, and the camera was all up in their face. I think when there are alter calls that the identity of the people should be discreet and the camera shouldn't be all up in the persons face where you can identify the people. I have seen Dr. Dollar call out alter calls for things and when the people came up to the alter, I identified some of them as people I knew and was shocked that they had these problems; because there are mockers out here who will pick at people after seeing their faces on the internet from one of World Changers sermons, I think it is embarrasing, and the camera shouldn't be on the people at the alter that are waiting to get hands laid on them.

6. With the investigation from Senator Grassley, Dr. Dollar told us as members not to go against him and call Senator Grassly because cursed is everyone that curses him and blessed is everyone that blesses him; Dr. Dollar has a way of talking you into things I think because he used to be a therapist and he knows the word. I am writing for answers since Dr. Dollar wouldn't talk with my husband and I.

6. You guessed it, I don't go to this church anymore.

JESUS LOVES U PPL

Matthew | 12:41 pm on 3/30/2010

Hail and well met.

The thing I find disturbing is that any of these so called "Christians" care what is being said. The bible says "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn..." So the only person that should be sitting on this message board is Mr. Dollar and his wife. Other then that all you are doing is showing your inability to "turn the other cheek". Lastly I will remind everyone, including myself, that the first amendment applies to EVERYONE. So although I am disturbed by the content of these comments I am not saying they shouldn't be spoken. God Bless America.

You got it pretty accurate. so cool that the wealth of those who do not believe is stored up for those willing to do things Gods way. I love the name it claim it part of this covenant with God!

Creepy Dollar, Jesse Duplicitous, Immoral Roberts, Benny Hinister,
Joelsteen, what a colorful cast of creeps. Why doesn't Benny Hinn take his traveling medicine show's to the St. Judes Medical Center pediatric burn unit? When will people wake up and see the emperor has no clothes?

You guys are going to miss the rapture, because Jesus said in the last days men shall be lovers of themselves, bosters, haters, highminded, we too close to the return of Christ to be disputing about God's messengers, it takes money to run a house or church!! The reason you so broke, is because you don't know scripture neither value it! Jesus said give and it shall be given unto you! And whatsoever you sow is what you will reap!! So expect to fail if you desire others to fail, expect to win when you encourage others to win!! Satan is suducing millions of people to ignore in this bad economy to turn their back on God when comes to finances!!! Follow no preacher or man without studying and praying the Bible yourself but most people are to tired and uninterested to do that, but willing to complain and blame it and get LEFT BEHIND!!!!

The Bible said give and you shall recieve you suppose to give what the Bible say. give frist fruit, tiding and a free will offening so if you choice to give more then that, that's on them, you, whoever choice to give more. Cerflo Dollar is just teaching what the Lord said. There are lots other teaching the same thing give, buy my book it's about GOD.Read your Bible and you shall know what it say and mean.

James Thompson | 02:47 pm on 6/16/2010

I have no problem with Creflo Dollar. He teaches what he believes. Isn't the fact that he has 30,000 people in his church in Georgia and 6,000 in New York proof that his message is encouraging to somebody? If you don't agree, follow someone you believe in. However, leave him alone if what he is doing is bring no harm to you. 32% of the Bible is about money. Actually, that means one out of every three sermons should be about money. Truthfully, where is he missing it?

Anonymous | 09:06 am on 6/23/2010

how if we do believe in God, even is people are wrong, can we call each other idiot, call other people silly? I wonder what the world out there must think of the body of Christ?

Great hey?

Like Paul said, if they preach Christ, Him crucified and risen? leave them alone? if these people are doing wrong, is God not powerful enough to be the judge? to do to them as He pleases, if He is unhappy with them, leave it to Him. . If its not from Him, it won't last. . . you really are giving yourself more stress bothering about little discussions, breaking each other down, while there are souls to be saved.

At least Creflo is preaching the word, and getting it out there. .

Dollars are need of ever one then why not Creflo Dollar need his dollars.If those mone belongs to him than he has all the rights to get his dollars.

I personally helped wire the so called "Church that Faith Built" there in College Park when I worked with Grice & Associates, and I can personally say that I saw with my own eyes that when the decons take up the collection at the beginning of the service, they pass around blue buckets, where the money is taken in back behind the pulpit and given to people inside a "cage" with money counters, who are then guarded by "armed guards" while the money is counted. I also know for a fact that inorder to become a member, you have to submit a W-9 to the church so it can be "verified" that you are giving 10% of your "gross pay" each week. Christ stated with his own mouth that any man who preaches on money, or sells things from the church, he is "NOT" a man of God. As a matter of fact, the Bible shows where Christ turned over tables and threw everyone out of the church who was selling things there. He said that they were not going to turn his Fathers house into a den of thieves. Then theres Creflo. Not only making millions from the donations to the church, but he sells books and tapes "in the church" the way Christ said to "NOT DO." Christ was right by saying you shall know a tree by its fruit. Creflo is either stinking with rotten fruit or he is not a man of God, regardless of how you want to look at it. There will still be those who take up for him, and thats okay. On Judgement Day, we will be able to finally be seperated from stupid people. Like the Bible says, a fool doesn't know he is a fool. Thats Gods way of nicely saying that if stupid people knew they were stupid, they wouldn't be stupid.

Taffi Dollar?!?! Sounds like she should be dancing around a poll.

Its a shame that you think the way you think But thers room at the Cross for you. But you also confirm that the word of God is true. The bible says that the natural man (the unbeliever)cannot recieve the things of God and neither can he know them because he is spiritualiy decerned.Meaning that if you have not the Spirit of God (The Holy Spirit) living on the Inside of you, you cannot understand the things of God. The bible also says that he who has not the Spirit of God is none of His. It is the HolySpirit who guides and Leads you into all TRUTH. God already knows man and the Heart of man that His heart is evil; Just look at the movies they make, the the things that we do to each other but we say and act like nothing is wrong. Out of site out of mind. We all need the cross for all men have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. We all need Jesus, He died for the whole world even you. Jesus looked past our faults and saw our needs and inspite of your ignorance meaning unimformed; Jesus still loves you! Why is it so hard to believe that God wants you to prosper. Do you have children? When you give your life to Christ The Lord puts His Spirit in you and you become His child. You being a father, having children, wouldnt you want the best for your children. You being evil know how to give good gifts to your children why would is it so hard to believe that God wants to bless His Children. What makes you better than God who is the creator of all things. In stead of being critical of what you dont understand ( human nature) why dont you get to know the true and living God. Are you afraid that you just might be wrong and find out that Jesus is alive and the Word is true, that he is the true and living God and that he truly loves you and that he truly has the power to forgive an change you inspite of you! He is able because He Changed my life and has given me purpose! The bible says when you search for me with all your heart you will find me. until then say nothing, your mouth can get you in trouble! Touch not my anoited and do my prophets know Harm. The same way a father or mother will defend there child when someone talks about them or comes agsinst them how much more GOD! HE'S ALIVE AND HE IS NOT WEAK BUT ALL POWERFUL, all knowing and ominepresent! HEARS ALL AND SEES ALL! When you come against Gods people you Come against God Himself! Becareful brother dont talk what you dont know! The things of God are Holy not religeous! Its about a relationship not Traditon. I knock at the door of your heart if any man would poen his heart and let me in I will come into him and I will sup him and Him with me. The beginning of a new relationship. Why dont you let Jesus in and get to know Him for yourself He is a Good God and He Loves you.

I certainly wouldn't want to guess what Jesus Christ would drive but for some reason I would guess something that would not present himself as lofty. Let's face it folks be in a Bentley or a Volkswagon, a car gets you from point A to B. What else do you need it for unless to say hey look at me.

Stop giving these preachers a hard way. Don't you know the word of God. - Seek first the kingdom of God and its rightneous and all things shall be added on to you. When these preachers started they did not have anything but kept on preaching about the kingdom of God. Now they are highly blessed and have everything. Thank God for their blessing. The blessing of the Lord maketh rich and added no sorrow. The same God has the power to make them rich and make poor. If you have so much to say why don't you know go become a preacher and see how God will bless you.
