Financial Woes Force Church To Sell Private Jet

Dollar flying away

News article found here.

“BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) ? Dwindling donations to the Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park have prompted its high-profile pastor, Mac Hammond, to put his private business jet on the market.”

Once the pastor pays off the outstanding bills, i’m sure he’ll take the extra and buy a rolls royce. Of course, it would be used for ministry. Duh!

I wonder how many churches own private jets in America? That would be good to research, but i do not have the time for that. I don’t even know where to begin to find out that info. I know a lot of TBN preachers have jets.

    Your post makes no sense.
    Your post reads, “BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) ? Dwindling donations to the Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park have prompted its high-profile pastor, Mac Hammond, to put his private business jet on the market.”
    Now, if I’m reading this correctly, it’s HIS private business jet. HIS, thus HE owns it. What is wrong with HIM selling HIS private jet to pay church bills? To me that’s a sacrifice. If the jet belongs to the CHURCH that is perhaps a different story. But if it is as you posted, “HIS” private jet he should be commended.

    just my opinion.

  2. If the jet was actually obtained because of the wages from a private business that would not be counted as a ‘ministry’, then so be it, i applaud him. But if the jet was purchased at the expense of ministering God’s word, then all i can say is that selling the private jet should be par for the course.

    The destruction of the poor is their poverty (Proverbs 10:14). Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom to the poor (Isaiah 61). What is good news to a poor man who doesn’t know where is next meal is coming from? when we say Jesus loves you that poor chap will wonder if Jesus loves me let Him fill my tummy first and then i will know that He really loves me. The kingdom of God is not a kingdom of lack, but abundant provision (John 10:10). Jesus who was Rich in Glory, became poor compared to His Riches in Glory

    The gospel of the kingdom should be preached non stop in season and out of season. We are not called to be critics of others. we are called to preach the gospel to others. When Jesus preached the gospel there was a manifestation which proved that the Kingdom of God never tolerated sickness, poverty and death. we are redeemed from all of these. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. what are the redeemed of the lord supposed to say? i am broke, disgusted, depressed, sick, hurting.

    The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the holy ghost.

    we are God’s ambassadors!!!!  we are royalty!!!
