United States televangelists want 54 million $ for private jets

Televangelists: God Says We Need Another Private Jet!

16 January 2016

There’s an insane phenomenon called “prosperity gospel” where preachers tell their audiences to send them tons of money so they can live lives of luxury/private jets. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down.

“If you’ve ever wondered why some Christian preachers must hopscotch the globe in fancy private jets, it’s in part so that they don’t have to get on commercial planes with the “demon” common folk.

Preachers from the so-called “prosperity gospel” movement, Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis, tried to explain their controversial need for their followers to give up their hard-earned dollars so they can fly in luxury in an interview posted Wednesday.

Copeland then pointed out he could “scratch my flying itch” by riding around in his single-engine, open-cockpit plane.

That was two years ago.

And today …

A video from the USA used to say about itself:

Jesse Duplantis Exposed ($54 Million Private Jet)

30 May 2018

False prophet Jesse Duplantis along with the majority of televangelists are false prophets (Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, TD Jakes, Benny Hinn, Paula White, TBN etc) fleecing the flock. Duplantis asked his congregation to fund a $54 million dollar jet in the name of “God”.

Yes, it costs millions and even more millions to sing the praises of capitalism and preaching for killing LGBTQ people and for subjecting women [sarcasm off].

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Duplantis from Louisiana is a well-known person in the United States with followers around the world. To reach them, he already has three private planes, but he does not find that enough. The preacher says that the Lord even whispered to him the type of plane. “He said I need a Falcon 7X and I said ‘okay!'” …

Duplantis is not the first well-known preacher who says he talks to God about private jets. In 2015, TV preacher Creflo Dollar asked for 60 million dollars for a new airplane and earlier this year preacher Kenneth Copeland bought a Gulf Stream V from donations by his followers.

This 4 May 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

You’ve seen them on TV, popular televangelists who preach the gospel to millions around the world. You may be surprised that these men of God are living a lifestyle few could imagine. Jesse Duplantis and Kenneth Copeland drive fancy cars and live in lavish mansions. They also fly in private jets. It’s impossible to know exactly how much money these ministries take in each year because they are not required to make financial disclosures of donations they receive and all of it is tax-exempt.

A Florida church will no longer serve as a polling location after its pastor put up a sign on Election Day that suggested Christians shouldn’t vote for Democrats.

A South Carolina megachurch pastor is passionately defending his decision to buy his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus luxury SUV.

This 1 September 2019 video is called “Stop GIVING Money to Pastors” – 9 year old girl goes VIRAL.

PASTORS ACCUSED OF PUSHING YOUTH TO GIVE BLOOD FOR DONATION MONEY A controversial church praised by politicians for its work to tackle knife crime has been accused of “sickening” allegations that some of its pastors pressured young people from the congregation to sell their own blood for money to donate to the church.

From the BBC, 8 December 2019:

German [Pentecostalist] evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, who drew huge crowds in Africa over decades of preaching, has died aged 79. …

In 1999, 16 people died in a stampede during a rally organised by Bonnke in Benin City, Nigeria.

In 2014, the Associated Press reported that he was living in a $3m (£2.3m) apartment near Palm Beach, Florida.

  1. It reminds me of Janis Joplin:
    Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
    My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
    Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,
    So Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?…
