Creflo Dollar’s campaign for a $65 million private jet ended shortly after it began.
And now, the embattled megapastor is firing back at his critics.
In a video clip uploaded Tuesday to YouTube, Dollar blasts “Internet commentators” and detractors who “don’t know” him.
Dollar’s remarks appear to have taken place on Sunday at World Changers Church International in College Park, Georgia.
He compares his critics to the “enemy” trying to discredit and prevent him from “showing [his followers] Jesus.”

Additional excerpts from Dollar’s remarks are below:
I can dream as long as I want to. I can believe God as long as I want to. If I want to believe God for a $65 million plane, you cannot stop me. You cannot stop me from dreaming. You can’t stop me from dreaming. I’m gon’ dream until Jesus comes […]
If you think a $65 million plane was too much, if they discover that there’s life on Mars, they gon’ need to hear the Gospel and I’m gon have to believe God for a $1 billion space shuttle because we got to preach the Gospel on Mars. I dare you to tell me I can’t dream. I dare you to tell me I can’t believe God […]
Dollar continues to encourage those in attendance to “dream about what the devil says you can’t have,” including the “best house” and “best car.”
The clip lasts a little more than five minutes.
Towards the end of the video, Dollar says he never “one time” asked his followers at his church for $65 million. He said the campaign was geared more towards his donors around the world that need him to travel to spread the “Gospel.”
