OK, lets approach it from a different angle. We are in a Court of Law. You are the Prosecutor. The Judge says to you "How do you know the house title is in Parsley's name - produce the Deed and show me. Maybe it's in the name of his church." Then the Judge says "How do you know the house is a million dollar house? Do you have in your hand a bona-fide appraisal to show me? How much does he owe against the house? Do you have a document that shows his mortgage balance? So, then, if you don't have those documents, you don't have any evidence do you? Case dismissed.
By the way, there is no law, nor ever was that says a "man of God" cannot have a million dollar house. That is simply your opinion, and the editorial pages are full of opinionated people. That don't make them right. I know the Bible backwards and forwards, and there is nowhere it says that. In fact, King Solomon was the wisest and richest mAgan that ever lived, and it says God made him that way. That's the only opinion that counts.
Agreed, 100%. Also, someone earlier compared Rod to Jesus as far as Jesus not being rich. Jesus debased himself on purpose so we don't have to. That's the entire message of the gospel. I'm not saying that because Jesus was poor we automatically are rich. But he became poor so we don't HAVE to if we don't want to. He died so we can live. He was wounded so we could be healed, and so on. But a lot of people don't get that. Essentially, he took on all the barriers so we wouldn't have any, if we should so choose the break through those barriers. Being imperfect humans, we each have a finite capacity to be and do different things. But with God, we can attain more. and what separates those who do more from those who do not is largely knowledge of what to do to get there. Rod knows and understands a lot about wealth. I find it very interesting that no one mentions the fact that he could have done something completely separate from his ministry to amass more wealth. Like investments, real estate. Everyone assumes he stole it from old ladies. It's just ignorance. and no, I don't go to church there.

It is amazing to me how one could speak of another individual without having the proper information. Every one who has posted something on this that would reflect Pastor Parsley in a negative light has (1) never visited the church regularly to see where all of the money goes and (2) is plain ignorant of how the Church in general operates and ministers to the world. The church cannot function without money....PERIOD!!!!!!!!!! If any of you knew anything you would know that the church has to make their expense reports public..showing where all of the funds taken in are going. Why don't you look that up?? What about the thousands of slaves that were freed as a result of World Harvest Church's faithful members? What about the millions of food that was sent to third world countries or the millions of dollars worth of medical supplies sent out as a result of people giving money? Before you open your mouth and pass judgement make sure you are completely knowledgeable of the subject you are making reference to. Rod Parsley a con artist...I doubt it. Check yourself and your source of information. If you don't agree with him and his work..that is your choice...don't support the Church. It is as simple as that. However don't become indignant and flat out disrespectful to those who CHOOSE support the work that Church is doing. It speaks volumes of your character. You couldn't possibly be a Christian speaking to others in that manner. For someone who is a sure is taking a long time for him to be found out! A 30 year scam is one GOOD scam!!! The Bible says that we should judge not, lest we be judge. Don't bring judgement upon yourself for speaking out of turn. God Bless All.

What the **** is wrong with you? DOnt you see how he spends "donations" on himself and lives like a king! Have you seen his "home"? His "clothes, cars and bodyguards? Any respectable "man of god" is not going to be living like a "KING". Think about lady, quit supporting a con-artist...just open your eyes!
My dear, you've set your gaze upon the quintessential frontier type. Note the lean silhouette... eyes closed by the sun, though sharp as a hawk. He's got the look of both predator and prey.

It turned a net profit of $14.3 million last year. I'd say it's doing good.
