Creflo Dollar isn’t giving up his dream of having his own $65 million private jet and you can’t make him.
Instead of accepting the idea that asking his congregation for donations so that he could purchase a G650 jet was tacky, he called out his detractors during a recent sermon. TheRoot.com reports that he took time to fire back at those who criticized him for trying to take up a collection for the jet.
Dollar drew tons of side-eye for the campaign, but he made it clear that he was holding onto his belief that he’ll eventually get the jet.
“I can dream as long as I want to. I can believe God as long as I want to,” Dollar told his congregation last Sunday. “If I want to believe God for a $65 million plane, you cannot stop me. You cannot stop me from dreaming. You can’t stop me from dreaming. I’m gon’ dream until Jesus comes.”
Without directly calling his critics evil, he implied that they were being used the Enemy to keep the Gospel from being spread and kill hope. However, Dollar urged people to hold tight to their dreams. In his case, it would be a private jet that he can’t afford on his own. “Don’t dream about what you can have. Dream about what the devil says you can’t have,” he said. “You cannot stop, and you cannot curse what God has blessed.”
BTW, if you thought a $65 million jet was an outrageous request, Dollar promised to dream bigger. He told his flock that if they ever find life on another planet, he’ll take up a collection for a $1 billion rocket.
