I really need to get religion. I used to be a DJ on a country music radio station. I’m not horrible looking. I think I could do this!
Creflo A. Dollar, senior pastor of World Changers Church International, preaches that God will reward the faithful with material riches. It is a gospel that has won the flamboyant preacher a 25,000-strong congregation — and a Rolls-Royce, a multimillion-dollar mansion and a private Gulfstream III jet.
He’s not the only one, as I’m sure you well know. Others on the list:
Benny Hinn: $12.5 million mansion on the California coast.
David and Joyce Meyer: Dresden vases purchased for JMM’s Fenton headquarters that cost more than $19,000.
Kenneth Copeland ministries: $20 million jet, trips made to a ski resort and exotic game hunting ranch.
Randy & Paula White: The committee sent her a letter Nov. 5 requesting financial records about her jet travel, a Rolls Royce she gave as a gift and a luxury home she bought near Boerne in August, among other items.
Wonderful news this investigation. But, of course, it’s not even scraping the bottom of the barrel.
