Bee-otched For: being a reverse Robin Hood
t was Jesus
who told the rich young man that it's easier
for a camel to go through the eye of a needle
than for a rich man to go to Heaven.
So I guess
the wife of a mega pastor from down south was
poor, even though her husband makes millions
from the pulpit.
John Gray is
a pastor at the Relentless megachurch in South
Carolina and is an associate pastor at
Lakewood Church in Houston, the home of
another crooked grifter, Joel Osteen. Last
week, he raised eyebrows when it was announced
that he bought his wife Aventer a Lamborghini
Urus, an SUV whose base price happens to be
$200,000 for their eighth wedding anniversary.
According to Gray, "it wasn't a pastor
that bought the car, it was a husband that
bought the car."
controversy unfolded, Gray took to Facebook
Live and told his flock that he got the
$200,000 from his TV show, which airs on the
Oprah Winfrey Network, books and various
investments. He claims that not one cent of
church money was spent on the Lambo.
You know, I'm
no fan of megachurches. All they do is preach
a gospel that's all about wealth and
prosperity: two things Jesus preached against.
Right now, there's many churches that are
struggling, including one that was the father
of a family friend of mine's. This church is
in a ghetto of Philadelphia and it's beyond
hurting. Attendance is low and the people who
attend don't give much because they don't have
money. Apparently, the city is trying to shut
the church down because their building is an
eyesore. Inside, it's not even safe. The walls
are crumbling, there's broken-down pews and
the building has no heat. Now, they need at
least $50,000 to keep the church going and
they simply don't have the money.
When I hear
about preachers and their mansions, their jet
planes and expensive cars, to me, it simply
causes people to abandon religion altogether.
As a matter of fact, millennials are
abandoning Christianity left and right. Sadly,
the gospel of helping others and other things
Jesus wanted is now getting lost in the
message of helping some grifter buy his wife a
better idea for $200,000: FEED THE HUNGRY.
