…….Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
Hypocrite – Someone feigning high principles. Somebody who gives a false appearance of having admirable principles, beliefs, or feelings.
Creflo Dollar is a hypocrite. He preaches one thing but practices another.
Recently we exposed on my ‘Quick Hits’ Page the hypocrisy of Creflo Dollar. Apparently, Dollar is having some money problems. He claims his television show is in debt to the tune of $2.2 million. If you’ve ever listened to Dollar for more than 30 seconds you’ll know that he is a big proponent of “seed faith giving” He claims when you have a need you must sow a seed of money (preferably to him) before God will move to meet that need.
Dollar is constantly telling people who are having financial problems that all they have to do is sow a seed and believe. Now it turns out there is more to it than that. It also helps to have a large television audience to turn to in time of need. Dollar makes this clear on his website when he says. “We are currently facing a $2.2 million debt that needs your attention.”
According to Dollar, this debt needs YOUR attention. I’d say it needs his attention since he’s the one who ran up the debt. I wonder why all his “seed sowing” isn’t working for him? Let’s examine some other interesting facts about Dr. Dollar.
Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Mar. 9, 2000
He drives a black Rolls-Royce, flies to speaking engagements across the nation and Europe in a $5 million private jet and lives in a $1 million home behind iron gates in an upscale Atlanta neighborhood……
Dollar lives in a $1 million home owned by the church in the Guilford Forest subdivision in southwest Atlanta. World Changers purchased another $1 million home on 27 acres in Fayette County in December. The church has amassed a fortune in real estate, mostly in College Park……
As World Changers grew, so did Dollar’s emphasis on prosperity. Dollar has no degree in theology. Much of his prosperity message, according to church and his family members, is based on the teachings of friend and spiritual mentor Kenneth Copeland……
While Creflo Dollar does have an undergraduate degree from West Georgia College (B.S. in Educational Therapy 1984) the title of Dr. comes via an HONORARY DEGREE from O.R.U.
As I have written before, it is fundamentally dishonest to use the term Dr. when the degree has not been earned academically. Dollar, like many of these heretics love the praise of men. They know that they can impress many gullible people with their fake credentials.
Contrast the dishonesty of “Dr.” Creflo Dollar to the apostle Paul who was highly educated in the scriptures, a Pharisee of the Pharisee’s but he said:
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
Here’s an interesting quote from Dollars website;
”To this day, the ministry continues to extol the virtues of debt-freedom, trusting God to initiate and complete new projects without the added burden of debt.”
What is this? – “trusting God to initiate and complete new projects without the added burden of debt” but now he says he has a $2.2 million dollar debt that needs your attention! Someone is lying.
…and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone:…
How about this quote;
….Jesus didn’t come as God, He came as a man, and He did not come perfect.
(Creflo Dollar Ministries: World Changers, 12/8/2002)
But the bible says
John 1:1& 14
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.
Well, you need to hear about money, because you ain’t gonna have no love and joy and peace until you get some money! (TBN, July 20, 1999)
But the bible says joy and peace come not from material things.
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Dollars wife Taffi has been known to introduce him as “one who talks face to face with God, like Moses”
But the scripture says
And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,
Dollar teaches that we are Gods
“Your not a sinner saved by grace you sons and daughters of the most high God. You are god’s!”
(Creflo Dollar Changing your world, April 17, 2002, LeSea Broadcasting)
This is the same lie with which the serpent tempted Eve.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Again Dollar contradicts the bible when he says
“A son of God, they are those through an understanding of their divine nature, they can operate like God on the earth.” (Creflo Dollar, “Growth Means Change,” September 29, 2002)
But the scripture say we become sons of God not by understanding our “divine nature” but by obedience.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it
Here’s what Ministry Watch has to say about Creflo Dollar Ministries
Creflo Dollar Ministries demonstrates no financial transparency regarding itself, which prevents any assessment of financial efficiency. It is organized as a church and it has no legal obligation to submit financial information to anyone. The organization has been contacted by letter, fax and telephone. They have acknowledged the requests, but they have decided not to send anything.
Creflo Dollar is a liar. He he has lied about his education, he has lied about the operation of his ministry. He lies about the nature of God and the nature of man. He is a lover of money. He has no fear of God. If he does not repent he is destined for everlasting torment in the pit of hell.
If you have been deceived by this man you need to repent as well. Turn today from this deceptive liar and return to the living God. Ask God to show you the truth. Ask God to be your teacher. Ask God to remove the covetousness from your heart. Repent today and believe the gospel which is the power of God unto salvation!
But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
