John Gray, pastor of Relentless Church in Greenville, SC admitted earlier this month to his congregation that he had cheated on his wife. Two weeks before that, he caught fire for a video that surfaced of him gifting his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini, boasting that it wasn’t the church that paid for it.
Gray, a former associate of the prosperity pimp, Joel Osteen made national news when he told his congregation to, instead of putting money in the offering basket, to take what they needed. “We’ve got too many pulpit pimps who want to get fat off people but don’t want to meet the needs of the poor people,” gray lamented.
But what we didn’t know at the time was that John Gray was living the high life in a 1.8 million dollar home–paid for by the church. The Greenville Times reported and Reformation Charlotte has independently verified that the purchase price of this home in October of 2018. They also reported that Relentless Church leaders said the Relentless-owned home was needed to attract a leader of Gray’s “caliber.”
John Gray, who claims that there are too many pulpit pimps getting fat off their congregations obviously doesn’t have a mirror in his mega-home. Gray himself trained under the master pimp of all time of the largest prosperity gospel church in America, Joel Osteen. His worldly, materialistic approach to church is far from a biblical gospel–it is another gospel all together. So the chain of events gathered from the news reports starts about two years ago where he cheats on his wife, he starts a prosperity gospel church in SC, his wife finds out he’s been cheating and they nearly divorce but she decides to stick it out, he buys his wife a 200,000 dollar Lamborghini and boasts that he paid for it himself, not using church funds, all while living in a 1.8 million dollar home paid for by the church.
Who needs a faithful husband when you got goods like that?
