Evangelical pastor to his followers: Jesus hasn’t come back because you haven’t given me enough money

During a recent Victorython on the Victory channel, evangelical pastor Jesse Duplantis said that the reason Jesus hasn’t come back yet is because people aren’t donating to their churches generously enough.

“I honestly believe this — the reason why Jesus hasn’t come is because people are not giving the way God told them to give,” he said.

“I realized that I will not move people emotionally to give,” he said later in the segment. “I’m gonna have people move according to the word of God. What is God saying to you? … If people would call this number and put this victory all over the world, every available voice, every available outlet, God the Father would say, ‘Jesus, go get ’em.’ Because, you see, he wants to see us as much as we want to see him. … And so what is hindering all these things is because people are not doing in the financial realm — because we’re living in an economic world — what God’s called them to do.”

“So I don’t have a problem with giving, I don’t have a problem with receiving. It doesn’t make any difference,” he continued. “I just made up my mind, I want Jesus to come.”
