Crystal Cathedral Bankruptcy
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!
