God told the pastor to buy his wife a lambo

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.

of course,
a clever fox found the video:

this is the wife’s ig status about the whole situation:

uh huh.
if this is the case,
they shoulda kept the video up.
why delete?
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,
right?

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,
pulling out,
and getting a tatt.

  1. Christianity and religion in general is just one big scam anyway. It’s just a tool used to control people, and apparently it works because people are apparently willing to do and give anything and everything to please their imaginary magical sky daddy

  2. Christianity and religion in general is one big scam anyway. It’s a tool used to control people, and apparently it works because so many people are willing to do and give anything and everything in order to please their imaginary magical sky daddy. You have these Pastors and the Pope who live in mega mansions and palaces while brainwashed religious worshipers continue to support them while living in poverty. People really need to grow up and let go of these fucking fantasies and fairy tales

  3. Religious folks are annoying, especially Black ones. They continue to chant phrases from a book created by a man then altered by slave masters again and given to slaves to learn from. This tradition is still going on..trying to preach from a book they can’t even follow themselves but magically they are under God’s protection because they have faith and go to church on Sunday. I’m still trying to figure out how they believe their Jesus is superior or different from Buddah, Allah and the rest…cause listening to them, they swear they are following the right thing and other countries are following the devil. They have no proof of this since the Bible says Gays should be stoned and your wife should do as the husband says …sigh.

    I was listening to this Middle Eastern girl argue with this Christian guy about whatever it was and she blurts out, “Allah said that they would deny him.”

    So I’m thinking in my head…Jesus said that too..but y’all are talking about two different dudes, who happen to and say and do the same things. So who is right here? Jesus or Allah? And are they coming back at the same time and how many Mary’s are there..?

    Also their belief in the Second coming of Christ doesn’t make sense..He was born already through the Virgin Mary, which is scientifically impossible, died and was ressurected again. That was his second coming but we just got let them wait until he comes again and see what happens..eventually.

    I’m more disturbed by the fact that these pastors get a good chunk of money and are usually not taxed for anything and make some good money retelling fales lies while the mindless followers are just getting by with oversized UFO hats and dollar store party fans nodding and singing like some from Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them.

    These pastors work hard alright, working hard for the enemy to keep the lies alive for each new generation?

  4. He comes off as a social climber he literally is in everyone’s reality show, outta no where he knows so many celebrities and is friends with all of them. I don’t get the hype. He took over redemption world outreach when that pastor fled to Cali due to his wife’s sex addiction, (that’s another story). But most people in Greenville say he’s always in Atlanta not really caring about anything but going on Sunday. 200,000 for a car is extreme for a pastor idcidc. He should’ve got her a cad.escalade.

    1. ^okay i thought it was just me with this story.
      why do pastor’s do this?
      they become the same alleged typical new money “whatchamahcallits”.
      it’s really ridiculous.
      don’t even get me started with the sex addiction.

  5. Some black folks are so gullible, just think of how many people he could feed with the money he spent on that car. She looks too big to fit in it!!! I can’t with these “living large preachers”. I read the word for myself so that I won’t be misinformed, something’s wrong when you have members catching the bus to get to church, but you roll up in a lamborghini.

  6. I was watching last week’s episode of that Michelle Williams’ reality show and side eyed John Gray when he said he couldn’t wait for Michelle and Chad to get married and have some “light skinned kids”.As if it’s a guarantee that their kids are going to be light skinned or that that’s a goal or something.Just say I hope you have healthy kids.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
