  1. It’s amazing how so many people CONTINUE Year after year to line the pockets of a lot of these pastors who gladly take y’alls hard earned money and live lavish celebrity lifestyles and promise y’all the same lifestyle the more you give….then y’all complain when they floss without ya…STOP buying into these fake (ya gotta be in it to win it) dreams! SIMPLE SOLUTION…Stop PAYING THEM!!

  2. What part don't people get..WIDOWS AND ORPHANS…FIRST.. .!
    -who are widows and orphans in hebrew.?
    thats BEFORE GIVING TO THE PRIEST. . (I'm not talking catholic either) The scriptures are Hebrew context..
    We don't have a TEMPLE. .
    ..(The church lied to you all supporting them..are they their for you..when you need food…rent money..medical bill?..That is what they SHOULD BE DOING with ur tithe..giving back..Blessing others like AVRAHAM! ..Not to keep for themselves..
    Maybe people will wake up..
    The "PROSPERITY" is for the person preaching it..NOT THE MASSES!
    ..Well get the wealth now..those are not likely to be getting it in the FOREVER KINGDOM!
    – Jesus/Yeshua Wasn't kidding when he talked on Rich man getting into The Kingdom!..

  3. He has no humilityty. He defines himself as clergy " part time ". At the least its nouvou rich, tacky, bad taste, and arrogant. His defensive response is arrogant and proud. Blessed are the meek. This validates so many steriotypes about AAs and the Black " church. "

  4. dont they know you have to go to school for that his job is being a pastor its how he makes a living he can't be rich because he's a pastor?

  5. He was cheating. Sad that he’d buy a car to try to buy her loyalty. I really like John Gray, but he knows that Christians are supposed to forsake ALL appearances of evil.

  6. Every town and Church with large audience has this type of buying Pastors live like kings Church is a money business operation today SAD but very true respond Saints Amen

  7. Hey TODAY, new story… he admits to cheating. Maybe this is the reason for the lavish gift https://youtu.be/yXYL5nYmZGE

  8. "I won't ask anybody permission to do it"… Doesn't sound like Jesus to me… No wonder many people don't believe in the Church anymore.

  9. This is truly saddening, doesn’t matter if money came from book deals or anywhere else, there are still so many homeless and hungry people out there that need help. Jesus walked on this Earth with no money in His pockets, and so did His true disciples, all they had was Gods Word to teach, and that was enough.
    I believe that it’s not too late for this pastor, we all have fallen with temptation, but we need to pray for him and his wife as we do for ourselves.
    What would Jesus have done? This is the mentality that we need to strive for. What would Jesus do? How would Jesus do it? Jesus is LOVE!
    GOD BLESS YOU ALL!❤️🙏❤️

  10. It does not matter that he got it from his book deals. Here is the point you are bragging, you are putting it on social media. Buy your wife whatever you want but do not put it on social media. Be HUMBLE. JEREMIAH 9:3 MATTHEW 6: 1-34. Do not brag about the gifts you got your wife. Their are people struggling and you are flaunting it. Enjoy your party and when you get home you silently take her to the garage and say this is for you. I do not want to publicize it because it would not be appropriate. You know this to be wrong because the BIBLE tells us so. ITS INSENSITIVE. GET IT!!!

  11. All of these people on Facebook saying how blessed they are. Try blessing someone else. If you are blessed it will show, you do not have to proclaim it to other people here on earth. Thank Jesus daily for your blessings and ask him to bless you and everyone else. Flaunting blessing is not of God and absolutely ignorant of the scripture. Your life should be spent blessing others to the best of your ability. I am sure a 50,000 suv would have been more than sufficient and poor hurting people could use the 150,000 in the way of soup kitchens and spreading the gospel. Yes, the Lord is the true judge and I don’t want to be found lavishing myself on temporary material things because it’s useless.

  12. I see nothing wrong with a preacher having nice things. As long as he is doing right by God and the people of the congregation I believe he is fine. He could have given the gift privately though. I can see how it is misinterpreted as show boating. But as far as buying her a Lamborghini for there anniversary I see nothing wrong. Why do we as people of God have to be poor or struggle. God wants his people to be prosperous and live life abundantly. Everybody can judge a situation when they are on the outside looking in. If you don’t have all the facts or details about the situation why say anything..!

  13. Matthew 7:3-5: "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye"…

    My question now is for those people criticising Pastor John Gray who are driving $20K+ cars or living large in homes which cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, etc when there are so many poor people which can be helped with that money? I understand the point some of you are making but look at yourself first and if you are free of sin then criticize. God know pastor Gray's real heart, his real intent, his real motives and the pastor will be judge accordingly but that is between God and Pastor Gray.

  14. Your money started through the gospel. I don't care how many books you written, you will stand before God. With your greed!

  15. He and Olsteen along with a few others are fast teacher's. We we're warned of them several times. Beware of the false prophets and beware of the false teachers. These people that do these mega churches are telling their people.what they want to hear. If it feels good do it. Do whatever makes you happy don't worry about the consequences. they'll sit there every week and tell you one lie after another to make you feel good and to give them more money. They take the words of the Bible and twist them around into what the world wants to hear. I'm sorry to tell people this but these are the prophets and the teachers of what Satan wants you to hear not of what God wants you to hear. Men who are truly called by God to preach the good news is not going to beg money from people every week and make them feel like they can't pay their bills because they have to send this money to the church. That's not how true believers do it. Hey he learned from one of the best have you ever noticed how olsteen blinks he can't look anybody straight in the eye. From a child I was told that if a person is talking to you even if he's talking to you on camera if he can't look you straight in the eye and hold your attention he's lying and he knows it. I have learned that 99% of the time that's true

  16. This joker. HIs first Sunday as pastor he admitted to stepping out on his wife. I'm guessing the car was a make up gift.

  17. Before I was a christian I would be excited like she was for that gift but now that I'm a christian I would be sad for such a gift as this. This is on of those things that seems good at the moment but as time goes on and you have to maintain that gift you will notice that you have only pierced yourself through with many sorrows.

  18. There are pastors in Latin America that love the Lord with all their heart ❤️ and don’t have a bicycle. Some walk for miles on an empty stomach. Been there and have seen it with my own eyes. $300.000. On a 🚘? Judgement is coming saints.

  19. Stupid followers can now see where their hard earned money is going to…lol. America is simply dumbing down by the minute.

  20. I like nice things as most women do, however I'm NOT extravagant like that . A 2019 Honda Accord FULLY LOADED would have been a Blessing for me !!

  21. Shouldn’t be happening unless it’s his personal money. Money given to mega churches should only go to the gospel, not pastors pockets. If it’s his own personal money then I don’t mind.

  22. 200? Try starting at 250.. Looks loaded with special opts. But Hey gotta make up some kind of way after you been F'n up. If he was a true player he would of got Aventer an Aventador✌

  23. How many of us that are responding to Pastor Gray feel the same way when Pastor Joel Olsteen and his wife are showing off their lavish lifestyle? How many of us are feeling some type of way when some of those so called Evangelical Pastors are raising all kinds of money for ministry sake but they live in such lavish lifestyle? Those that are giving into the church as they believe in tithes and offering and can't have nice things down here, think about how you're giving…. is it good soil?

  24. All this so call pastor are all going to burn for ever & ever hope they live there best life now just like Joel Olsteen say it

  25. His problem is he thinks he has to buy her love. He can buy it do what every he wants. Stop the ebvy and jealousy. Who cares.

  26. Tht one is like the one in south africa busheri how in de world u pay R7000 equivalent to $ 600 to see a pastor fr delivarence thts business f****k thm to evn take to de poor using de gospel

  27. People give money to these Churches/Pastors because the Pastors portray themselves as chosen by "God" to simply teach..Oh by the way " That"ll be $29.99 for today's sermon on DVD". Pastors are simply pimps who figured out a more society accepted hustle to prey on the weak who are desperate for direction.

  28. There tarfetinf John Gray bexause he waa willing ro take a meering with Trump. I really wonder if that has anything to do with this Just fascinating. Im not sure if i agree with the extravagant purchase, but i don't know if I agree with the level of criticism. Especially since the funds isn't directly from the Church resources, but rather book sales.

  29. The public and church folks are accustom to seeing preachers/pastors poor. It’s a shock to them that a pastor can afford such luxury item. Nothing wrong with it. I guess for some it would have been appropriate if he bought her a Toyota Rav4

  30. Ridiculous, there are so many homeless, and pastors are driving Lamborghini. Stop giving money to these 'pastors' or buy their books.

  31. If he bought that Lamborghini for his wife without using Church funds of any kind then I see no problem with it. And who knows, maybe some of that money could have been a gift from President Trump.

  32. The lord answered his wife’s prayers. How about you broke dummies spending $500 in tickets to see this nonsense.

  33. There's this minister he is so known for Mercedes fancy cars being given to him and his wife he never keeps them he puts it all back in the ministry it just makes people give him more cars he says no I'm not going to keep it and puts all in the ministry him and his wife really walk the talk and highly respected for this and anointed by God for it. It shows a purity in heart and why what they do it for. I went to a Big church the minister wouldn't accept a raise he said it was just enough to take care of his family his wife worked and he drove a cheap kia we really liked him a lot we knew him and his wife really cared for us the church more than themselves. I know other ministries that give it all too.

  34. They are not regular folks, he has 22k members in his church, a show on the OWN network and books. So what y’all haters want him to drive a Kia or a Honda. Why should he if I had it I would buy it. STOP PEOPLE!

  35. God will vindicate the truth..!!
    Go Pastor John Gray. This is all the favours and blessings because you are faithful to God.
    No one knew you when you had nothing…and then all of a sudden they have a lot to say..! Oh please.

  36. Just because you got it, don't need you gotta flaunt it, unless you have a good reason. Pastor Gray's expensive gift to his wife was damage control for the long term mistress he impregnated. And now his wife has a brand new $2 million dollar, 7500 square foot mansion to curse him out in. I mean pray for him in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhtbIAe1XNQ

  37. I don’t have the issue with him buying his wife a car, but this same Pastor cheated on his wife right before he brought he car with another girl who he booked a room with at the same hotel he and his wife was staying with. This seems to me to be the typical move that people do when they get caught cheating. The voicemails exposed him and he denies it. That is why he recorded himself giving her the vehicle to send a “message” that he is staying with his wife. This stuff is sad and to each its own, but I would rather get a 200,000 home and turn it into a homeless shelter or retreat center for young teenagers before accept a gift from my husband who is trying to cover up his infidelity .

  38. As long as Americans are too lazy to read their own doctrine (Bible) they will get fleeced by these charlatans. You can spot these devils easily as they let women lead them and the love of money is the validation of their faith.

  39. I gave my wife a nice evening out for less than $70 including tip, that was good and we had a nice conversation, what else do you want? Lamborghini? Meaningless. Besides that, I realize you are giving other peoples money for your own frivolous things, not right.

  40. People need to read the entire bible. Not just one or two places over and over again then you’ll realise a lot of what you’re told is lies that’s why they don’t take you to those other parts.

  41. " I won't ask permission from anybody to do it" It is like saying I don't care what God has to say about it, I know better.

  42. He rights book, people buy them, thats a business. Whats wrong with him making money of the books he rights??
    If he wants to buy his wife a car people its none of your business what he does with the money he earns.
    People Stop trying to tear down another Pastor. He earns his pay check and spending it however he pleases. Good For Him!

  43. The point is that people should practice what they preach. It’s so easy to preach but to easy to practice. As a Pastor, I think humility and compassion should be his first stance. A Lambourghini is not humble. Yes, he can buy her things but when other people sacrifice so much for that church, it seems greedy to have the leader behave like this. Also, a Lamborghini should not be the only way to make your wife happy.

  44. Hi. The true biblical Sabbath day is Saturday not sun day. The day of worship will become the test for the mark of the beast. Read the great controversy.

  45. Personally I don't think he's that good. You foolish people can keep giving this devil your money if you want to. You go to work everyday to some menial job, and can barely keep your lights on, and go to church and give your money to him, so that he can buy lavish gifts for a wife that he cheated on with your money. Keep your money, stay at home invite some friends over to read the bible.

  46. This feeds the DARK SIDE such as an theist or evolutionist feed for their fodder. Make wife happy? Drive by you flock to see if they need something. Speak of flock they should all fly away. Not judging but a bet on his salvation have bad odds on his side.

  47. Jesus rode in on a donkey when he was spreading and teaching God's word. That car was for him cheating on the wife. When did preaching God's word become a multi million dollar business?
