Jesus Wouldn’t Be Riding a Donkey’ says Jesse Duplantis

False teacher and prosperity preacher Jesse Duplantis is now asking his disciples for money to buy a jet that costs $54 million “so we can go anywhere in the world in one stop.” He seeks the donations in a video posted last week on his organisations website.

Duplantis insists that God says he needs a Dassault Falcon 7X, which is a three-engine private jet that can carry 12 to 16 passengers and can travel up to 700 miles per hour. According to SherpaReport, the Falcon 7X costs about $54 million dollars new. This would be the fourth plane owned by Jesse Duplantis  Ministries should it be secured through the donation drive.

“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.”

Duplantis is not the first to solicit donations for a private jet. In 2015, prosperity preacher Creflo Dollar obtained his coveted $70 million dollar jet after his religious organization’s board agreed to buy him one after soliciting donations from his worldwide audience.

Greedy scheming conmen

The greed of scheming televangelists and the so-called modern day prophets is just another symptom of a predatory line of thinking among these charlatans who are driven to further atrociousness by attaching the name of God to their actions. There is a level of horrific hypocrisy espoused by those who claim to live for God and then go on to repeatedly take advantage of the people around them we have seen this cruelty in Africa as well where prophetic mafias are brazenly bragging and flaunting wealth they milked from impoverished congregations.

These pseudo preachers and fake prophets follow the model of “prosperity gospel” in which they believe that wealth is a sign of God’s favour, and that by simply believing and praying for money—in addition to donating copious amounts of money to their ministries and fancy named projects like Uebert’s (Miqdash project)—is what will take you there. This is actually a rare belief among fundamentalists, with only a small percent of evangelical Protestant leaders saying that they believe in the concepts of prosperity theology. The small percentage who do, however, have amassed a large amount of wealth, power, and huge audiences to beg for donations.

The poor are most affected

Not surprisingly, most of the victims of this harmful prosperity doctrine are those in the poor and working class—it’s like a monstrous pyramid scam of religions. They see prosperity theology as a supernatural lottery, which isn’t shocking, considering that 61 percent of people who play the lottery are from the poorest one-fifths of the population. But these televangelists and the charlatans who masquerade as modern-day prophets claim that your faith, your very soul, is tied into giving “positive confessions.” And the fact that you are poor isn’t just bad luck: it’s not having enough faith, not praying enough, and, of course, not giving a big enough donation to their ministry.

Shame on these false teachers who have commodified and commercialised the gospel of Jesus Christ.
