David Cerullo, if you don’t know, is the Chairman and CEO of Inspiration Networks. USA TODAY has an article about the CEO stating that David is building a $4 million home in a gated, lakefront community in western South Carolina at the same time that the ministry has cut jobs and reset thermostats to save money in its new headquarters.
I personally don’t see anything wrong with that. If I ask for donation and I get it, let’s say, $20 million with no conditions attached to it, you think I would put it in the bank and let it rot. Are you kidding me?
I get free money – well I pray a lot, don’t I? and I pray for the people who give me free money.
I work hard. I pray to God, at least that’s what I tell my congregation. And I bless the money so it all becomes kosher.
If I don’t spend it by buying $1,000 suits and if my closet is not full of them and if I don’t buy 500 pairs of shoes, what good is the free money?
It’s my money. People give me free money. If I build a $4 million home with it, what’s wrong with that? I pray to God, don’t I? And the best part is they give me the money of their free will. I didn’t force anybody to give me the money. It’s a free country. And why shouldn’t they? I pray for them.
You know how hard it is to pray. It’s extremely hard. It’s so hard I sweat and I sweat a lot. It’s still better than working in a sewer. Yesterday, I saw a man coming out of the sewer. He was all dirty but he was not sweating. When I pray to God, I sweat a lot. So whose job is harder – mine or his? Of course, mine.
He works hard to put a measly $10 worth of food on the table for his family. I pray hard to put a $4 million home on the ground for my family. So whose job is harder? My job is harder, of course. I pray to God. I sweat a lot.
Moral of the story
My congregation gives me the money. So let them. One thing is for sure I am not gonna let it rot in the bank. That’s for me to spend and I am spending it by building a $4 million home with it.
O! Ye people of the world. Stop this nonsense. Wake up and smell the roses. Come to your senses. A lot of people have lost jobs. A lot of people are on welfare. A lot of people are on fixed income. Please be sensible and just say NO.
