LOUISIANA TELEVANGELIST NEEDED ANOTHER PRIVATE JET
It’s hard to do God’s work. Sometimes you just can’t get around easy enough to deliver the Word to your flock. Or maybe travel is just too stressful to have anything left in the tank to do your mission. But what do you think is the case here? Louisiana televangelist Jesse Duplantis says he needs his $54 million jet so he can get to those hard to reach places without stopping to refuel. Now that’s a man on a mission, especially as he already has a fleet of his own jets to hand. Or is that to God’s Left Hand? Who exhorts hard working people to send money for yet another private jet? Jesse Duplantis, that’s who.
HIS FLOCK, OR SUCKERS, COUGHED UP $54 MILLION FOR LONGER RANGE LUXURY
Shame is evidently only in the eye of the beholder. Jesse created the perfect picture for his rubes, aka believers. His televised approach featured him standing in front of framed pictures of his angelic private jet. He said:
“You know I’ve owned three different jets in my life and used them and used them and just burning them up for the Lord. Now, some people believe that preachers shouldn’t have jets. I really believe that preachers ought to go on every available voice, every available outlet, to get this gospel preached to the world… Let me just say this: we’re believing God for a brand new Falcon 7X so we can go anywhere in the world in one stop. Now people say ‘My Lord, can’t you go with this one?’ [points at one of his other jets] Yes, but I can’t go at one stop. He [God] told me: ‘Jesse, you want to come up to where I’m at?’ He said: ‘Before you ask, I’ll answer: Isaiah 65:24.’ He said: ‘I want you to believe me for a Falcon 7X.’”
GOD TOLD HIM MAKE, MODEL AND NAME OF HOLY PRIVATE JET
Get it? God told him to buy the exact model and make, the Falcon 7X. God does work in mysterious ways! Jesse also made sure his flock knew why it was important that they be fleeced, because the “End Times is comin’ fast.” Now, I knew someone forever ago who came from a televangelist family. They told me the family actually got some angst after a major televangelist spree. You know, when the different ministers sat around a table and divvied up the spiritual spoils, like yachts. And I thought we left all that behind in the old days of the 1970’s! But the Old Testament still ain’t that old, it seems. Anyone want to buy a bridge? It comes with the best snake oil ever known outside of Eden. But this Louisiana grifter will face more judgement than this article.
