Here is the video from the part in Furtick's sermon in which he comments on his house. Look at his demeanor. Does this guy look comfortable? And people give money to support this nonsense?
Special thanks to our good friend Tom Rich, FBC Jax Watchdog, who stood up to a rich pastor, took it on the chin, and won! So, how long do you think this video will be up before Furtick calls in the attorneys? The timer is set…
PT Barnum had it right.
There's a sucker born every minute.
Without promotion something terrible happens… Nothing!
Here is waht two commenters said about Tom Rich's post. The first is tongue in cheek and informative.
Steven Furtick has been suffering since 2005. That was the year he came to Charlotte to plant a church amongst all the unchurched folk.
Of course, he and Holly needed to have a house. They were 25 years old. No cozy bungalow would do. No, they bought a brand new 2,100 square foot house for $190,000.
Four years and two children later, it was time to look for another home. Another new home. This one had 3,100 square feet and cost $362,000.
It's been a rough, rough road for the Furticks through these years of church planting. This time, they're going all out with 16,000 square feet costing some $1.4 M per the building permit. That's on top of the 19 acres worth $1.6M.
Y'all need to have some Christian compassion for the Furticks!!!!
Second comment: This poor person has been sucked in. Shame on Furtick. (Note the capital "H" in He.)
I am a member of Elevation and I thank God for His favor on Pastor Steven. Like Pastor always says…FAVOR AIN'T FAIR!!!
Don't hate on him, rejoice for the blessing of God on His Life!
Like Pastor said 3 weeks ago, when "He" is blessed, that blessing flows to us all!
We join with Tom in being thankful that investigative reporters are doing what the church refuses to do. In fact, rumor has it that some SBC leaders are desperately trying to justify Furtick's lifestyle. You do know that he is SBC?
PS: Do you really think books paid for this?
