Crystal Cathedral Bankruptcy

October 5, 2011

OK, put on your surprise faces: The ‘Miracle Faith Offering’ Drive Fell Short.

And not just by a little bit: it fell spectacularly short.

The Orange County Register discovered in court papers filed last week that the congregation has only collected $4,737 in their Miracle Faith Offering drive, a far cry from the $50 million owed in debts.

This happened, somehow some way, in spite of the power of prayer:

Moderators of the official “Hour of Power” Facebook page have asked supporters to sign up for “24/7 Prayers” – an effort to seek “God’s miracle that will save Crystal Cathedral,” CP reported Sept. 23.

“Crystal Cathedral is now being prayed for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” the message on the Californiamegachurch’s Facebook page declared. “Thank you to all our friends around the world who are praying for God’s miracle that will save Crystal Cathedral.”

I suppose there is a lesson in all of this. I like to believe it means God hates the Crystal Cathedral, but you can draw your own conclusions!

    $4k out of $50 million? Why, that’s even worse than an epic failure. That’s almost… Biblical.

    God has spoken. Sometimes the answer is “no”.

      Come now, a ‘yes’ to 0.0000947% of the request isn’t technically a ‘no’.

    Oh ye of little faith! Obviously that $4000 is “seed money” from God. Now they just have to find the most anointed ministry on earth so they can “sow” into it and be rewarded with a magnificent (several) hundred fold harvest!

    I nominate Scotteriology as that ministry, it’s has a flawless reputation for the prophetic so the anointing must be strong here!
