The bible tells us "ask and it shall be given"
but what if the request is "greedy"?
Well that's what social media is thinking after minister, popular televangelist and founder of World Changers Church International,
Creflo Dollar, is now hoping to get 200,000 people to donate $300 each!
What are the donations expected to go toward? Ministry of course. The Creflo Dollar ministry ( how ironic with a last name like 'dollar')
expects to use the donations to buy a brand new luxurious $65 million Gulfstream G650 airplane for his ministry,
which last year had billionaires reportedly waiting in line to get one.
An appeal on his website to fund the purchase of the multimillion dollar airplane noted that the appeal was triggered by a
recent engine failure on his current carrier that could have resulted in a tragedy had it not been for his skillful pilot.
For DETAILS you can see the donation video message here:
Most recent Update as of yesterday (3/14/15): Creflo Dollar Ministries has pulled a Web page soliciting money for
a new $65,000,000 Gulfstream G650 jet following a big social media backlash, reports Atlanta's WXIA-TV.
But while the fundraising page for "Project G650" has disappeared, supporters can still contribute through the ministry's donation page,
the report notes. However, the news outlet notes, it can still be accessed through a cached version of the page from this week
showing a five-minute video that talks about the ministry's works, and discusses the need to replace at 30-year-old Gulfstream
jet that is no longer operable after an accident in London when it slid off the runway during an aborted takeoff.
The recording says the use of an airplane is necessary to help the ministry fly to all parts of the world, the report notes.
