A few weeks ago, the pastor made the news for letting church members come up and take money from the offering plate. He was lifted up as charitable and humble. It appears he’s also been helping himself to the offering plate…
[WBTV] GREENVILLE, SC (RNN) – A South Carolina pastor facing a social media backlash for gifting his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini SUV is now defending the purchase.
Gray is the same pastor who drew praise for letting veterans, single parents and widows take from the collection plate earlier this year.
He said “not a nickel, not a penny” from the church was spent on the luxury sports vehicle, according to The Greenville News.
John Gray also noted his multiple streams of income.
“I put a faith deposit down in February and God helped me to make my wife’s dream come true. Why not? She’s made mine come true!” Gray also wrote on his Instagram account.
His wife also came to his defense.
“My hubby is a hard-worker, he worked his whole life and he saved to bless his wife!!!” Aventer Gray said via Instagram. She also gifted her husband with a Rolex watch, estimated at about $8,000, according to the Christian Monitor.
“You light my fire, let this Lamborghini light your fire,” Gray said last week as his wife screamed in excitement, adoring the black Lamborghini Urus with red accents.
