last time i criticized a pastor for having an expensive car,
i got in trouble.
you know i don’t care so ima ask pastor john gray…
Why does your wife need a 200k lambo?
…and why do you need an 8k rolex?
a foxholer sent me the story via “raw story”...
Relentless Church Pastor John Gray said he would not be shamed for buying his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus for their eighth wedding anniversary, reported the Christian Post.
Gray received mass criticism for posting a video of him gifting his wife the car on social media. The original video has since been deleted, but a few clips were saved. His wife Aventer Gray also gifted him with a Rolex watch that has a price tag of about $8,000.
The couple said that they will not apologize for the blessings they have from God. “I will never apologize for how hard we work and how we want to bless each other,” Aventer Gray said on social media.
a clever fox found the video:
this is the wife’s ig status about the whole situation:
if this is the case,
they shoulda kept the video up.
that reeks of insecurity.
i just have an issue with pastors being extremely new money,
especially when they tend to be the biggest scammers.
pastor john gray told us if we need it,
to take money from the baskets:
On Sunday, Nov. 25, things went a little different at Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C. In what the Christian Post describes as “an emotional service,” Pastor John Gray decried what he described as “pulpit pimps” who only ask their congregations to “give, give, give.”
“For too long people have stood in a pulpit and told you to give, give, give. Very rarely have I seen churches stop and say, ‘Leave the baskets out, let the people get what they need.’ We’ve got too many pulpit pimps who want to get fat off people but don’t want to meet the needs of the poor people. And Jesus said that’s who you supposed to be taking care of. We got widows, we got orphans, we’ve got single moms in here. We might not be able to do everything but we can do something. I wish we could do more but it’s the best we can do right now,” Gray said near the end of his sermon, which he called “Leftovers.”
He asked his congregation to hold off on putting money in the collection baskets until they felt the words he was saying in his sermon.
He told those gathered: “The role of the church, elder, is not only to receive from the people of God but to meet the needs of the people of God. I ask you to hold your offering until something in your spirit connected with the Word. Did you all hear me when I said that? But the role of the church is also to meet the needs of the people in the house.”
He then surprised the congregation and said, “Are there any single mothers in here? You had an orange light in your gas tank when you pulled up, where are you? Come to the altar. Hurry. Single mothers. Are there any single fathers and you had less than a quarter tank of gas, where are you? Come to the altar, come to the altar.”
As the congregation cheered him on, he continued, “Here’s what I want you to do. There’s some money in these baskets. You get what you need for you and the kids to eat and get some gas.”
He then called single fathers up, then widows and veterans, and explained that although his church is young and not financially secure, he was doing what the Lord told him to do.
i guess this makes him “the people’s choice” tho,
lowkey: my issue with rabid church folks is godly perfectionism.
they don’t allow themselves to be real.
everything is “God is gonna be mad”.
if this was the case,
they wouldn’t be eating shrimp,
and getting a tatt.
