As schools, universities, churches shut down across the nation amid the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, Pastor Creflo Dollar has made clear that the potentially deadly virus is not going to dampen his hustle.
While church attendance is expected to dip due to the quarantines, Dollar has set up a Cash App account to collect tithes from his congregation as they practice “social distancing” by staying home to stall the spread of the CORVID-19, yourblackworld.com reports.
The pastor’s loyal flock are encouraged to wire money to $DollaDollaBillYall, and he has allegedelly warned folks not to use the virus as an excuse for not paying tithes.
“I understand the concerns over coronavirus but those concerns should not interfere with the tithing so I can afford to pay my bills on my mansion, fleet of luxury cars & private jet. If I’m struggling, nobody’s getting into Heaven. So pay your tithes so I can properly shine while spreading the gospel,” he said.
Meanwhile, the pastor announced Monday (March 18) that he will be hosting virtual church service in an effort to adhere to “social distancing,” writing on Twitter: “With the limitations of no more than 10 people in large gatherings, we’ll be moving to VIRTUAL SERVICES only.”
As reported by CBS News, social distancing is now being enforced throughout the nation, with government officials calling for the shut down of schools, sporting events, Broadway shows, theme parks and all non-essential businesses.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced that U.S. and Canada have agreed to close their border to most travel to curb the spread of the virus.
“We will be, by mutual consent, temporarily closing our Northern Border with Canada to non-essential traffic. Trade will not be affected. Details to follow!” Trump tweeted.
