Fake Pastor ‘of men’ John Gray of Relentless Church in Greenville ( a Mega Church) bought his wife a Lamborghini worth $200,000. Gray is also an associate pastor of Lakewood Church, under leadership of Fake pastor Joel Osteen.
This, obviously, is worldliness and contra-Christian doctrine (the doctrine of Christ) as well as betrayal of donators and followers.
This fake minister defends his self with the below comments.
1) John Gray says he is not a priest who took a vow of poverty.
Nowhere in the bible is it written to take vows of poverty, nor has God appointed any Christian priest through Jesus. Priest of men and monks of men may do so, for this does not transgress Jesus’ doctrine or any commandments.
Christianity teaches us not to live worldly lives, especially those who claim to be ministers of God! Jesus teaches us to find the kingdom of Heaven first and to put him first. This fake minister puts his wive before Christ the bride! While Jesus teaches us:
MAT 6: 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
MAT 6: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
MAT 6: 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
John Gray is serving Money (Mammon) which is the devil! And so he hates ‘God’, clearly: he does not believe in God but he is using the Gospel and the folly of his followers as a vehicle to wealth.
People, please get out of those Mega Churches and give your donations to charities who really help people.
2) John Gray says:
a) that his books, speaking engagements and TV show afford him and his family a life of luxury, that’s called living the American Dream.
b) And being a Christian does not mean you can’t have expensive things.
a) To a true minister of Jesus, the American dream is to preach and live the Gospel: not the worldly version of wealth. This is Pseudo-Christian doctrine.
b) John Gray of Relentless Church in Greenville is not a Christian, and neither is his church a Christian church. Even he knows that being a Christian means having been born again of incorruptible seed, containing the holy ghost and not having any desire for access luxury.
3) John Gray says: In Proverbs it says, “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”
a) this quote is no defense at all for John Gray. Elsewhere in the proverbs, it reads: son, when you find riches, do not put your heart upon them!
b) and, indeed, the false pseudo-Christian teachings of John Gray and other mega churches are ‘mere talk’ without substance acceptable to God: what leads to spiritual poverty for his followers. So he brings his followers poverty, whilst he bathes in riches.
c) but the proverbs are the Old Testament and in The New Testament we receive the doctrine of Jesus.
Where riches and gathering gold were acceptable in the Old Testament, in the New Testament these things are condemned. Following Jesus means no access luxury.
d) funny, could the followers of this fraudster really fail to understand that following the crap he preaches to them will relegate them to the fires of hell?
4) John Gray says: What I do is I pastor God’s people. Who I am is a husband and a father, and I’ll do anything to honor them and I won’t ask permission from anybody to do it.
God people are pastored by Jesus. He left them his doctrine. Any true preacher of the Gospel is not a leader like the Pseudo-Christians invented it, to lord their person over others, but a servant of God, now being servant to a congregation of disciples of Christ. The only persons John Gray is pastoring are deluded followers of men.
