  • Church gives away 5 cars

    If the pastor had ever wanted to channel his inner Oprah, this was his chance.
    “You ready to give a car away?” Stephen Chandler boomed into his microphone, bouncing in his boots at the altar Sunday.
    And then the pastor did it again. And later that day, he would do it again. And again. Five free cars in all, handed out to the lucky winners at Destiny Church in Columbia, Md., on Sunday.
    “We were just going for something you would not expect a church to do,” Chandler said. “This is something you would not expect a church to do.”
    It was part marketing ploy — but also theology, Chandler said. Randomly giving away cars to people who show up to worship demonstrates God’s unbelievable, no-strings-attached goodness, Chandler preached.
    And it sure helps get people in the door on a Sunday morning.
    The free-car promotion was Destiny Church’s out-of-the-box idea for drumming up attendance at its first official Sunday in its new location, a building in a Columbia strip mall that the seven-year-old nondenominational church recently moved into after several years of meeting in a high school auditorium.

    COLUMBIA, Md. — Please God, give me salvation — and a car.
    That prayer may have been uttered by more than a few people at a Maryland church on Sunday. That’s because Destiny Church in Columbia handed out five used cars to demonstrate God’s goodness and to attract new members.
    The Washington Post reported that the church gave away the cars to increase attendance at its new location. It was the first Sunday at a building in a strip mall for the 7-year-old nondenominational church.
    Pastor Stephen Chandler said the predominantly African-American church normally draws up to 1,100 people. This week, the church gave away 2,250 tickets in advance of three services.
    The church added a fourth service, which meant it had to buy another car to give away. The fifth car was given to a family in need.

      Joyce Meyer and many others rake in millions every WEEK. She lives on a compound in a multimillion dollar house with million dollar houses for all her children. The church pays all her bills and she and her family all get salaries on top of that. They fly around in private jets and do not want to fly on public planes with the rest of us people. Many are so deceived that they still think they are serving The Lord Jesus.

      They preach such error that they claim anyone with faith should never get ill, but they still die of cancer and have children that die of cancer and other illnesses.

        Not just the money, but the lies they preach. We all struggle to get by and make ends meet. These people are bleeding other people and promising lies. Hope is free and yet they charge for it.

          It is very sad that many pay millions to be told lies, but the truth is valued very little.

          Ecc 10
          6 Fools are put in many high positions,
          while the rich occupy the low ones.
          7 I have seen slaves on horseback,
          while princes go on foot like slaves.
