Two televangelists try to justify their need for private jets.  I couldn't listen all the way through this video.  Let me know if he came up with a valid reason.
Duplantis, saying he needs about $54 million to help him efficiently spread the gospel to as many people as possible, has asked the Lord — and hundreds of thousands of hopefully deep-pocketed followers across the world — for just such a plane...

But this is not the first time Duplantis has been enmeshed in the preacher private plane debate. The Falcon 7X would be his ministry’s fourth jet — all paid for with cash drummed up from followers...

“We believe in God for a brand new Falcon 7X so we can go anywhere in the world, one stop,” he told people on “This Week With Jesse,” a regular video broadcast on his website... “Now people say … can’t you go with this one?” he said, pointing to a picture of the plane he uses. “Yes, but I can’t go it one stop. And if I can do it one stop, I can fly it for a lot cheaper, because I have my own fuel farm. And that’s what’s been a blessing of the Lord...

He preaches the prosperity gospel, which says God shows favor by rewarding the faithful with earthly riches. Giving money to pastors and their ministries, leaders say, is a sort of investment...

“The world is in such a shape, we can’t get there without this,” Copeland said of private aircraft. “We’ve got to have this. The mess that the airlines are in today I would have to stop, I’m being very conservative, at least 75 to 80, more like 90 percent of what we’re doing because you can’t get there from here.”

“That’s why we’re on that airplane,” he said. “We can talk to God.”

  1. I read something like this and it makes me mad. Then I watch a farting preacher video and I'm happy again.

  2. I'm a god fearing Christian and I couldn't finish it either. Just makes me sick to my stomach... particularly the lines talking about the indignancy of having to pray for people and getting into a long tube full of demons (referring to flying on normal planes)

    The primary message of the New Testament is all about love. Where is the love here?

    I would be interested to hear from some folk who actually donated money for this, to see their reasoning behind it

  3. Only in America. Sorry but this kind of thing makes Americans seem very gullible.

  4. KMT, I agree with you, but there's gullible people all over the world; the prosperity gospel is preached in a lot of countries, mostly the English speaking.

  5. Tube full of demons? Yeesh.

    1. Hey! Give credit where credit is due- that there's as good an analogy as an analogy can get (actually, maybe even a better metaphor)!!!

  6. Give him a break. You need privacy to molest choir boys.

  7. As a Christian, I have the happy hope that such charlatans will receive their due reward in the great judgment.
