Televangelist Jesse Duplantis is making waves with his latest request to the faithful who belong to his Jesse Duplantis Ministries.  He has told his congregation that God wants him to buy a $54M jet.The popular preacher is getting a lot of unwanted media attention from his appeal on YouTube.  Multiple news outlets, social media, have ridiculed the pastor for being so self-centered.

CNN and others have reported that Duplantis already owns three other jets.  The minister says he needs a new one because of high fuel costs. We shared his sales pitch to you recently during the Kevin Miller Morning Show.  The Treasure Valley overwhelmingly believes that Duplantis lifestyle is contrary to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

I would hope that Duplantis would change his mind about acquiring material goods and dedicated his life to helping the poor.  That's making a real difference in this world.  He can worry about the friendly skies in the next.
