An American pastor has been criticized for giving his wife a new Lamborghini for their eighth wedding anniversary.

Pastor John Gray, the former Lakewood’s associate pastor, best-selling author, and resident reality TV star, and now senior pastor of Redemption Church in Greenville, has caused a stir with his new gift.

His wife took to Instagram to thank him stating:

“MY HUBBY IS A HARD-WORKER, HE WORKED HIS WHOLE LIFE AND HE SAVED TO BLESS HIS WIFE!!! REALJOHNGRAY
AUTHOR X 2
SILENT ENDORSEMENTS (YOU KNOW BECAUSE EVERYONE DOESN’T HAVE TO BRAG ABOUT WHO THEY ARE SIGNED TO)
6 TV SHOWS
MOVIE PRODUCER
SONG WRITER
TOURS

“Gives away cars, full houses of furniture, coats off his back… Checks before pastoring and tithes that in its entirety between 2 churches AND those he feels lead to at any given moment… BEEN WORKING FOR YEARS…GET OUTTA HERE.”

The social media comments were many and varied, with one stating, “There are souls that need to saved (sic) & the kingdom is losing people due to so much drama and actions of the leaders. If we conform to the things of this world then why should the world conform to Christ? Like you said, all of the “church” folks jumped on the negative “amen” bandwagon of confusion and messiness. God is not the author of confusion! I respect a man and woman of God but honestly when I see this type of behavior, it turns me off. Thank goodness I have a strong faith in Daddy God and I don’t worship nor put my faith in MAN! As leaders in Christ, you must set the example of Godliness. None of us are better than God and they talked about him 🤷🏽‍♀️ You will never please everybody all of the time. As long as you know in your heart that you’re ethical and walking with Christ wholeheartedly then who cares what others say! Continue growing the kingdom so that God can say, Well done!”

Another said, “Man I dream of the day I can do for my wife what @realjohngray did for you. Just dope on so many levels! Happy for you all and Happy Anniversary.”

Last year, the pastor resigned from Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church to take up a new post in South Carolina. The pastor was on staff at Lakewood for five years.
