My girl Dash Harris posted a picture on her Facebook account and I had to blog about it. Because it’s so ridiculous.
SECURITY!!! There are just so many things wrong here.
The pastor is turning 70 so the only way they deemed appropriate to celebrate his life is by giving him $70,000??? Not even $700. Or $7,000. But SEVENTY STACKS! GOOD GAWD! That is A LOT of money. Because, you know, a vacation is just not enough. They gotta show this man of God (O_O) that he is loved by giving him a gift that is more than most people’s annual salary.
And then, the HUGE “cash only please.” So yall don’t want paper trail of these donations, or as they call it “gifts of love.” To make sure they’re really clear, this won’t be tax deductible. iSweaterGAWD these people are bold as ever.
But the other part that slays me is the fact that they want people to pay $25 a month. Yall are putting folk on an installment plan? You are NOT QVC or Home Shopping Network. You are a church! I’m unable.
The devil is a LAH and Jesus ain’t pleased that they’re invoking His name for some personal fundraiser like this. He ain’t. They’re quoting the book of Matthew because they know some gullible Christians will fall for that nonsense. That ain’t e’em Godly and I rebuke them in the name of Meshack, Shadrack and that Billy Goat.
Who even came up with the idea, and who are the fools who cosigned it? And the Pastor supports this, I’m sure. Ain’t no way this happened without his go ahead. Where is the IRS? They better collect what they’re owed by Passa and his Disciples of Dishonesty. Shoo…
I woulda gotten that piece of paper and realized that this church home might not be for me afterall. I’d pick up my good Bible and start searching for a replacement the next Sunday. Because these bammas here… NAWL! I bet this is the type of church that posts the names of those who haven’t tithed in the past month. Just greedy. They all need to have a seat in the pews and re-assess their lives.
Saints and Aints, if this happened at your church, what would you do?
P.S. Also, I’m in the wrong field. This church business hustle is NICE. And terrible.
