First he fascinated us with the epic battle between Jesus and the evil one in the depths of Hell.
Then he wooed us with the fable of Jesus Christ and the luxurious robe and sandals that was comparable to today’s Armani Suit.
Then he left us scratching our heads with the notion that we are all little gods.
Then he bedazzled us with the prediction that Jesus Christ will be coming back in 2005, which of course didn’t occur.
Now he baffles his listeners even further with his theology which takes away the divinity of Jesus Christ prior to His baptism.
Now at what point does his followers say to themselves, “Hey, maybe this guy is not the real deal”.
At what point does his followers start to search the scriptures for themselves and say, “Hey, maybe this guy is not the real deal”.
At what point does his followers look at that hip white suit of his and say, “Hey, maybe this guy is not the real deal”.
At what point does his followers recognize that their bling bling is not going to come anywhere near of matching his bling bling and then say to themselves, “Hey, maybe this guy is not the real deal”.
I, personally have great concern for his flock, because within his flock are what I would trust to believe are some of the elect who are caught up in a season of pacifying the flesh, for it is the flesh that drives one to desire more and to not be content with what the Lord has provided.
As crafty and manipulative of the scriptures Mr. Dollar may be, his ministry is not on display for us to solely expose it or condemn it, but to pray for the elect that have become deceived into believing that Creflo Dollar is the Real Deal or a true witness. For:
A false witness will perish, and whoever listens to him will be destroyed forever.

We are to Jesus' words not to Judge has nothing whatever to do with pointing out false teachings and teachers. To state "If GOD is in it then no one and nothing can stop it" is an absurb argument ... do you say the same thing about the teachings of Joseph Smith?
I am appreciative of Connie's comment and it is truly one worthy of considering. However, the important thing to look at is, by what standard are we basing to call one God's anointed. Issues regarding eternal salvation are very important to me and my household, I would pray that everyone within a listening ear would place the same level of importance in regards to their eternal security and not allow just anyone to minister and teach them. For many false prophets and teachers have gone out into the world, many have come from our own ranks, this for the purpose of drawing many to themselves. Now keep in mind, what does it truly take to make one a false teacher? For starters, it would take one to falsely teach. And to deny or not recognize that Mr. Dollar has done so, would show a lack of sound understanding of the Word.
Perhaps you should watch Creflo on a regular basis. I think you might change your mind. We all must remember the scripture 'TOUCH NOT MINE ANOINTED'.....
I have watched more than one critize a man of God and that person is no longer anywere around. think about this....
In reference to Lydia's statement, we are called to judge and to test every spirit. We do this based on the word of God. When even the unsaved are able to discern that some of Mr. Dollar's declarations are not biblically based, then why do we fail in regards to this? If any preacher announces that he knows when Christ will return, then he is clearly in violation of Christ's words in Matthew 24, that no man knows the day or hour. Therefore, if I were to witness this from a preacher firsthand, at that point, I and anyone who holds reverence for the Lord will and should walk out of the door.
