Words from the pulpit of eight metro Atlanta churches

Page 6 of 6

"And I'm like, boy, if the news media heard that. I can hear that right now: 'Priest takes widow woman's last amount of money. Details at 6 o'clock tomorrow.' And especially a guy with the last name of Dollar.

"So I started meditating in the Scriptures, and I said, 'Lord, I receive it.' And three weeks later, that lady came by. She was just a-jumping and a-leaping and crying. I said, 'What's going on?' She said, 'My house is paid off.'

"And I said, 'Congratulations.' She said, 'No, you don't understand. And I'm driving a debt-free Mercedes.' I said, 'Aw, shoot.' You gotta understand, I was so glad. I said, 'Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, thank you, thank you, whew, thank you, Jesus.'

"And it got me to wondering. I know there's a reason Satan wants to attack ministries. I know there's a reason he wants to take the ones that mess up and blow them up on the news to get everybody, [to show] that every minister is just like the one who just blew up on the news.

"I know there's a reason he had a sense of humor. He had a sense of humor when he allowed me to be born in a family with the last name of Dollar, then called me to preach, and then said, 'Preach on financing.' That is a sense of humor. That is a sense of humor."
