Did y’all see John Gray explaining to the social media world why he bought his wife a 200k Lamborghini for their anniversary? Well I did and honestly, I don’t see what the problem is. He’s not just a pastor, he has multiple streams of income. My question has always been, “just because someone gets saved they can’t live a life with nice things?” Why is that when Christians become well off it becomes their job to cure world hunger or all the other financial needs of the world? Don’t get me wrong this is exactly what we ALL be striving for, helping the world but why does everyone act like Christians shouldn’t spend their money on anything else? I do not feel like he was trying to flaunt but to give an amazing gift just like Gucci Mane got his wife a Rolls Royce, what wasn’t it a problem then y’all? I mean, you mean to tell me we have a God that says that he wants to live an abundant life and if our income allows we can’t buy luxury items? I don’t really understand this, if Christians are to live by example to makes others want to be Christians then why cant that run in to the physical way they live as well?
Do you know how many people on the street with rags get passed up and ignored every day? If those same people walked up and tried to witness Christ to you would you still walk away? I’m sure they’d get ignored by the majority because they don’t look like something you aspire to be? I believe that God blesses us to bless others including our family and loved ones. He blesses us to inspire others as well. You can be saved and wear Gucci, Red Bottoms, and drive a Lamborghini. Pastor John defends the fact that he has saved his money and worked his tail off to get his wife what he felt she deserved. He said that when his wife saw the car initially she said that it would be a dream to her and I don’t know about you but I would love a spouse that liked to make my dreams come true. I kind of agree with his wife. She says that (paraphrase) we don’t have problem with a basketball player having a nice car and we pay our money to go see them play a game and not give anything back to us but because a pastor does it after pouring encouragement and prayers into you it’s a problem.
The bible encourages Christians to be good stewards of everything they have this includes MONEY. Did anyone stop to think that may Pastor Gray just manages his money from his other income so well that this was a purchase that he could afford? I feel bad for him, I honestly feel that he was coming from an honest place with his purchase. He has clearly invested him self in enough financially lucrative thins so that he is financially stable obviously (Not just the church!). I’m praying that the backlash from the public doesn’t bother him too much. I wish that we could understand that not every pastor is trying to get over. It bothers me that this generation is so scarred with trust issues that they cannot trust that God see the good they do when they give regardless of what other may do when they give it. He simply asks you to give, after it’s out of your hands it is upon the person that receives it to be integral from there going forth. You have done your part and your good deeds do not go unseen. I stand by Pastor Gray and his wife, we all work to live a life that is comfortable to us, and if a Lamborghini is in the budget saved or unsaved I say go for it! Maybe you won’t like me as much after this article but, I’ll leave you with words from Pastor Gray’s wife.
