  1. Don’t Know who needed to hear this, but you’re up next !! Be patient 🤞Hope our channel helps !!

  2. People are so ignorant they really think pastors or christians cant wear nice things a shoe is a shoe my guy

  3. They can spend their money however they want but don’t go on stage trying to preach the words of god, talking about modesty and humility while wearing $5,000 Yeezy’s, while the very same people that are attending and donating to the church are struggling. Its like a slap in the face. Its tacky and disrespectful to the people supporting the church.

    • good word “trying” because this guy isn’t saved. He’s not a real Christian, he believes and preaches a false gospel. Oh, he used his salary to buy it so it’s ok? Where do they think the pastor’s salary comes from? It comes directly from the offering. So the pastor should be responsible and accountable to the congregation what he uses his salary for.

    • +Mike Harrison Honestly everybody is a false prophet in my book because nobody on this earth truly knows what God is. Lmao
