Pastor and popular preacher, Creflo Dollar, recently made controversial statements about, you guessed it, money. Considering his history, and his name for that matter, this should no longer serve as a surprise but many are outraged.
The preacher’s account was updated on Wednesday evening with a post that read, “Jesus bled and died for us so that we can lay claim to the promise of financial prosperity.”
While Dollar has been accused many times before of promoting the prosperity gospel, this was the first time that he was the most obvious and blatant with his statements and beliefs. Soon, he found himself being mocked for the statement, which is clearly at odds with what many people believe is the Christian message.
Earlier this year Dollar outraged America after his private jet ran off the runway of Biggins Hill Airport in Kent. He then used this incident to request $65 million from his followers, creating something like a ‘Go Fund Me’ page.
Later the pastor was publicly criticized for his use of the pulpit to generate funds for his aircraft, to which he replied that the criticism was that of the Devil who was allegedly trying to “discredit him.”

10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
10 They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us.
