Inside Creflo Dollar's Million Dollar Mansion(s)


I'm still somewhat torn over the issue of millionaire ministers.This man works for his money so he should be compensated but should he be compensated so much?Shouldn't he be more finacially on the level of those in his congregation?

Via New York Times:

"Mr. Dollar's salary is set by a compensation board at the Georgia church, but he declined to reveal it. He also declined to say how much of his salary and fees he donates back to the church, except to say that he is one of the church's biggest givers.

He and his wife live in a million-dollar mansion in Atlanta that is owned by the church. He has said that his two Rolls-Royces were gifts from congregants. But shortly after he started the New York church, he and his wife, Taffi, purchased a $2.5 million apartment in the new Time Warner Center on their own."

10 people paying 10 percent of their earnings equals one persons pay.
what happens when you have 10,000 people giving you 10 percent of their earnings? You become annointed...

Seriously... I don't have a problem with a pastor being rich unless:

1. There is one elderly person, poor person, person in need in the church who's needs are not provided for.

1. If there is one member who don't have food... who has to catch the bus with his/her kids because they don't have a car....

etc. etc. I think it's a travesty and a sin for a pastor to capatalize off of the financial giving of his members and not "give back"...

IMO they are NOT following the example of Jesus... he sat on the mount all day preached to the people... in the hot son... without a mansion or a Bentley... and still he saw to it that they were fed.

If being a pastor provides you with the means to live great... I say go ahead be all you can be... but what of your people?

A lot of these pastors, bishops, etc... are phony and they may be rich now... but they are going to hell with gasoline draws on. :devil:

^^^I am quite sure there are people in his membership that do not have cars. I am quite sure there are people in his membership that may miss a meal or two because of finances.

People need to realize that these megachurches are more like corporations and less like places of worship. So if they want to give him thier money let them. It's the American way!

Aren't Christian pastors supposed to emulate Christ? He was a carpenter for which he generated income but his preaching was free of charge as far as I can tell from reading the Bible.......
If I am incorrect someone please correct me, it seems Creflo Dollar is more like the Sanhedrin who Christ kicked out of "his Fathers house".




Truth, Compassion, Forbearance
http://www.falundafa.org

“...if every one of us examines his own character for causes, if when we don’t do well we look inside ourselves for the cause, and we try to do better next time, and if we think about other people first any time we do something, then the world will change for the better, morals will go back up, people’s civility will improve, and crime will go down. Maybe we won’t even need policemen. There will be no need for things like neighborhood watch, and everyone will watch over himself, and they’ll look inside their own minds to fix things. Wouldn’t you say that’d be great?”
- Mr. Li Hongzhi (in Zhuan Falun)

Exactly what I was going to say,That so many of these high dollars pulpit pimps seems to have missed the part of the Bible that lets you know Jesus was a poor carpenter.
