True. And for those people who want to give their money after having a full understanding of who this man is, then I will have nothing to say about how they spend their money. My problem is with those who are/were previously unaware of Dollar's practices before giving money to his organization. That's why I applaud stories like this going viral. Well, that, and also the momentum that these stories provide for efforts to reform the tax exempt status given to certain organizations.

I love Christ and am a Christian. And I promise you that this man and his preachings are a front for materialism.

I read this article about the jet he wants a few days ago.

I'm hoping that his desire for continued material wealth and that jet will not come to fruition. Shame on him!!!

I'm with you. Unfortunately for all things decent, I believe that he will get what he's asking for. Heck, he already has a private jet paid for by the church/parishioners . . . he's merely trying to replace it as its getting too old for him.

What else would YOU have outlawed to suit YOU?

Statements like yours are dangerous.

This doesn't surprise me and is one of the reasons I don't enjoy going to church. Creflo Handout has been doing this for years, but it seems he's getting more bold. Pastors do this everywhere. I refuse to line the pockets of some douche that preys on ignorant folks looking for a miracle.

AMEN and AMEN!! God will , can and does provide for all of our needs ( wants to ) but not so sure a 60Mil Jet will bring him much glory.
Like the folk in other countries are going to really be impressed.Not sure they care how you got there just as long as you are willing to help them. Can you imagine what 60Mil would do in one of the countries, WOW!!!!
Heck what it would do to improve an area for the better, WOW!!! I think that's what God would do

So Pastor Dollar, who is seeking major dollars (sorry, I couldn't help it), can't fly coach to spread the gospel? Even first clas flights wouldn't cost anywhere close to $60 million for all of this guy's travels. Note, that figure doesn't even get into fuel costs! And people wonder why I'm so fed up with many of these pastors aka pimps of the pulpit. Seriously, I'm disgusted. Somewhat surprisingly, though, Dollar is being very open about matters, which I don't normally see mega church pastors do in such instances.
Shouldn't the good pastor simply ask the lord to provide?

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!
