It’s been about a month since word spread about Creflo Dollar’s fundraising campaign to purchase a new $65 million Gulfstream G650 private jet, a campaign that failed almost immediately after the public scratched their head at anybody truly needing a $65 million jet to spread the gospel.
But listening to Dollar as he takes the stage this past weekend, you would be led to believe that there was another driving force behind his failure to obtain a brand new jet for his ministry: Satan and his minions of doubt.
Blind, misinformed internet commenters and critics started a wave of disinformation, leading to failure for the fundraiser. That’s why Creflo Dollar ministries is still vying for a new jet and also why he took the stage in defiance of those trying to kill his dreams. From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“If I want to believe God for a $65 million plane, you cannot stop me,” Dollar told his followers. “You cannot stop me from dreaming. I’m gonna dream until Jesus comes.”
Dollar’s comments at his World Changers Church International were made about a month after his campaign to buy the jet made headlines.
On a web page devoted to Project G650 — as in the top-of-the-line Gulfstream 650 — Dollar urged donations so that he and his team could safely spread the word of Jesus around the world.
The donation website was later taken down. But while it was up, the website devoted to the fundraiser said Dollar’s current plane, built in 1984 and purchased in 1999, has logged 4 million miles. One of the engines failed on a recent trip, but the experienced pilot was able to land safely and no one was injured, Dollar’s ministry said.
The part that really stands out in the video above is how Dollar decides to up the ante and say he’s willing to launch his ministry into space with a billion dollar spaceship, spreading the word to any life we may find on Mars. I’m not sure that’s ever going to happen, but I’m going to take his advice and dream like I’ve never dreamed before. It’s currently playing out exactly like a South Park episode and I’d like it to continue that way:
