By the logic behind his "prosperity gospel", they should be asking god. They give Creflo money, god gives them money. He and his followers are money hungry. They only donate because they think god will give them money. He only preaches because he knows they'll donate.

That's why they say you can't cheat an honest man.

Just from a financial standpoint:

If he gets the 60mm collected, join NetJets and rent a fractional share of a jet. 60mm earning just 5% is 3mm a year in interest and would cover hundreds of hours of flight time without ever spending the principle! No long term ownership hassles, no maintenance bills, no pilot/crew salaries......all taken care of by NetJets!

I hate flying commercial. Hey, I have about 3,000 followers on Twitter. If they each contribute $20,000 I can buy a jet, too!

Schools for underprivileged kids are great, but that guy is a bigoted crackpot. A total nutcase who pushes conspiracy theories to support his own intolerant beliefs. To quote him:

“The Rockefeller World Population Council and Planned Parenthood International, the same Planned Parenthood that is giving black women abortions all across America is also the same Planned Parenthood, who has also contributed to the brainstorming and think tanking that went into using homosexuality as a population control strategy in the black community…”

We don't need imbeciles like that in charge of teaching our children. They need education, not indoctrination.

If you are a native Atlantan people either greatly hate or love World Changers, but after 29 years of ministry in little ole College Park, it is still standing without no sex or IRS auditing non-profit financial scandal. I will believe the report of the IRS over anyone's post on this thread. World Changers. Btw World Changers is broadcasted Globally, I even saw the broadcast when I was in Nepal, and 200,000 people giving $300.00 will be no problem. Non-profit have federal rules, and you are really dumb if you think the IRS don't watch Mega ministry like a hawk.


It is interesting some want to ignore all the other people I named who are doing the same things. Some of those people like Joel Osteen, Paula White, Pat Robertson and for that matter Atlanta's own Stanley clan. They all do the same thing, GET MONEY FROM PEOPLE WHO FREELY GIVE BECAUSE IN SOMEWAY IT ENHANCES THEIR LIVES. You may not understand them but they may not understand why some people spend billions to watch the Falcons, Braves, and Hawks or spends billions going out to eat and drink at expensive resturaunts when they have food at home. History shows that World Changers are enhancing lives, if it is not your thing and you rather spend your money at a baseball game or drinking beer at a bar, then move on..

We have plenty of threads about the stadium. This one is about Creflo. I think if you don't want to read it you're the one that should move on.

I don't agree with everything he says but I agree with his overall vision. And he's far from an imbecile.
