A private jet is a necessity for televangelists, according to Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis, the latter of which brought up Creftlo Dollar, another wealthy ‘pastor’ who found owning a jet so necessary that he asked his congregation earlier this year to donate $65,000,000 so that he could purchase one.
They’re just doing the Lord’s work but without all that icky Jesus stuff.
Duplanti spoke of the book of Amos but Copeland steered the conversation back to the importance of owning a private jet, saying God does not talk to you on a commercial flight.
“You couldn’t have done that on an airliner. Stand up and say “What’d you say, Lord? Okay? No? Yeah? And the guy sitting over there, saying, “What the hell does he think he’s doing?” You can’t do that! No, no…”
“That’s why we’re on that airplane. You can talk to God,” Copeland said.

Copeland then spoke of Oral Roberts and the audacity of airlines wanting him to ‘pay for’ their services.
Copeland said you can’t do that today and ‘get on a long tube filled with demons,” with Duplanti agreeing with him.
It “protects the anointing,” Copeland said. “We’re in the soul business here,” he added, to which Duplanti responded, “Right.”
In 2015, John Oliver discussed Copeland and Creftlo Dollar’s so-called need for private jets and their lavish lifestyle.
The Copelands live in a sprawling 18,000 square foot $6.3 million mansion outside Ft. Worth, Texas.
Copeland also owns a $20 million Cessna Citation jet, the fastest private jet money can buy, according to Inside Edition.
The church and his followers afforded him this luxurious lifestyle. And basically, so do taxpayers.
But that’s not all. A fleet of planes is also registered to the church and then there’s The Kenneth Copeland Airport located right next to his mansion.
Matthews 6:24 reads, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
To our readers: What is your New Year’s resolution? Does it include purchasing a private jet? For me, I’m vowing to get my cataracts fixed and central air and heat would be nice in my home, although, I do not consider it to be a ‘necessity.’
