It’s crap like this that gives believers a bad name.
Oh, yes, we know all the all the arguments that will be given in defense of it.
It’s ‘for the ministry’, you’ll say.
The wealth of the wicked is laid up for the righteous, you’ll say.
Sorry. Not buying it. We’re talking about a freaking Gulfstream V.
There are two kinds of people who should never be made rich by their work. Public servants, and pastors.
Suppose we even bought the idea that it made some sort of business sense to own a plane so you wouldn’t worry about scheduling. (We’re not convinced.) There are plenty of private planes that would do the job. Why does it have to be the Gulfstream V?
Controversial televangelist Kenneth Copeland was all smiles on the tarmac near his Fort Worth, Texas mega church as he took delivery of his new $3million Gulfstream V private jet.
‘This is a big deal, this is a big plane’ he says in a video posted on his ministry’s website, before grinning into the lens and asking viewers, ‘do you see this? do you see this? I hope so, you bought it. You and Jesus.’
Oh really? The private plane you had before wasn’t good enough? You needed an upgrade?
You’ve built your own freaking airport Kenneth. Maybe you haven’t heard about a guy named Jim Bakker, and the crap he had to go through to straighten out his priorities. (In his instance, time in Prison helped sort that out.)
Perhaps you avoid the arid wasteland of Christian Television successfully enough that you don’t know who Kenneth Copeland is?
For that, congratulations. And I’m sorry. Because now you know.
He’s one of the crop of TV types who have been loosely classed ‘prosperity’ preachers or ‘name it and claim it’ preachers.
A big emphasis on their platform is the audience sends money, which puts them in a position where God has to give to them over and above what they gave the preacher.
In case you’re a non-Christian, and this talk is freaking you out? It should.
Giving as a means to get a divine financial kickback was never — EVER — part of the Christian worldview.
Listen to that cackle of glee!
It’s a big deal. And a big plane.
Are you seeing this? You oughtta be. You bought it!
No, really. He said that.
Where have we heard that line before…? Oh. That’s right:
Here’s a memory verse for you to chew on Kenneth…
As it is written, “God’s name is being blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.” — Romans 2:24
The entitlement attitude, there is nothing at all virtuous about it.
One thing that increasingly unites men and women? We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
