If only we all could have dreams as big as his, and the nerve to ask people to pay for them.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get hundreds, or even thousands, of people you don’t even know to donate to your worthy cause? Even if that cause was a $65 million private jet, all in the name of God, because it’s a dream of yours? In the mind of Creflo Dollar, you can’t stop him from dreaming.
Dollar (Dollar Bill) blasted critics of his recent jet fundraising endeavors during a recent church sermon. Dollar took issue with those who felt it was wrong for him to reach deep into the pockets of his congregation and ask them to donate to his $65 million dream jet, because a pastor can’t travel coach, apparently. His critics were compared to the devil, and he doesn’t appreciate them trying to discredit him and his dreams of flying high in a G650.[embedplusvideo height=”350″ width=”625″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1Eja10k” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/HcT7cKr3hCw?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=HcT7cKr3hCw&width=625&height=350&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep4096″ /]
“I can dream as long as I want to. I can believe God as long as I want to. If I want to believe God for a $65 million plane, you cannot stop me. You cannot stop me from dreaming. You can’t stop me from dreaming. I’m gon’ dream until Jesus comes,” Dollar preached.
Yeah, see, the thing is, you can dream all you want. But don’t expect people to pay for your dreams out of the kindness of their hearts and Social Security checks. When Jesus turned water into wine, he didn’t charge the masses for that wine. Jesus also didn’t expect them to buy him a cart pulled by seven donkeys in return. I’m quite sure that would have been the equivalent to a G650 back then.
