"I really believe that if the Lord Jesus Christ was physically on the Earth today, he wouldn't be riding a donkey," Duplantis says in the video. "He'd be in an airplane flying all over the world."

If we read the word we can see how Jesus picked up a bullwhip and drove the money changers out of the temple as they were monetizing the gospel for personal gain. Men like him who've been prospering from perverting the gospel will suffer greatly in hell.

I find this so sad. A lot of the people that donate to help pay for that plane can't afford to do so.

Even sadder is that God warns his people that they perish for lack of knowledge and to prove all things and hold fast to that which is good yet shysters like him are able to pull this off repeatedly.

They can't fly commercial, because 'it's full of demons,' and they'd be overwhelmed with prayer requests?

The capricious idiocy of evangelicals never ceases to amaze me, particularly the tithing lemmings that lap it up.

That is a convenient, completely unsupported belief that he has going. It must be nice to make up your own rules. I love the Gospel, I don't love seeing it perverted by false prophets.

How about they just start following their own bible? Mark 10:25 seems pretty unequivocal, or at least it should be for people who wear their love of the book on their sleeves.

No idea what a "real" christian is, but I don't think the celebrity and money worshipers care what traditional, more ethical followers think. Hence why it is still going on and why church attendance continues to plummet.

Good news doesn't come cheap. (Gospel means good news in case anyone didn't get it.)

Unfortunately some people cannot discern for themselves, which Jesus refers to as the sheep, and they require a good shepherd to guide them.

With God all things are possible is the conclusion to the "eye of the needle" thing. The problem is that someone actually preaches Jesus flying into Jerusalem on a jet. They missed the whole point, which is humility, something utterly lacking in these "christians". Claiming to be something and then becoming the antithesis doesn't substantiate their claim.

I just noticed your new avatar - and couldn't approve more.

Still giddy about the news myself.

OMG! His Cessna Citation X isn't enough for him?
https://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Wolves/greedy.htm (most of the way down, lists jets owned by several televangelists.

Of course, I guess he thinks that his parsonage should grant him a better plane...

Yeh, but you're not Jesus, Jesse.

Well...they’re not wrong I guess.
The full quote is even worse...

"argued that commercial planes were full of "a bunch of demons" that will bog down their busy schedules with prayer requests"

Can't be giving that shit out for free and can't be having video floating around of you refusing or worse lying about it. What would Jesus do?
