“See that’s how I know you still poor, broke, busted, and disgusted because of how you’ve been honoring me,” he said during a fiery sermon on August 7.

Funderburke rebuked the parishioners for splurging on themselves rather than “honoring” him with material things.

“I’m not worth your McDonald’s money? I’m not worth your Red Lobster money? I ain’t worth your St. John’s knit? Y’all can’t afford it no-how. I ain’t worth your Louis Vuitton? I ain’t worth your Prada? I’m not worth your Gucci?”

He continued, “You can buy a Movado watch in Sam’s! And y’all know I asked for one last year. Here it is the whole way in August, I still ain’t got it… Let me kick down the door and talk to my cheap sons and daughters!”

Surprisingly, many in the crowd agreed with him.

Funderburke later apologized after the clip went viral on social media. He said the “video clip does not reflect my heart or my sentiment toward God’s people.”

Kansas City Pastor GOES OFF on congregation calling them "poor, broke busted and disgusted" because they didn't give him enough money to buy a new watch he's been wanting. It's pastors like these that give the church a bad name smh an also why a lot of our generation left the church. What y'all think? ?
