Pastor Tony Spell has been hiding behind the word of god for too long, and it looks like his devilish plan has reared its ugly head once again, this time, it's clear that he hasn't been completely truthful about where that money's going...

But he doesn't seem to care and many have theories as to what the money's really been spent on.

Once again, pastor Tony Spell has hoodwinked America, but this time he's making a profit.

What the money's being spent on has left the internet seething, but it doesn't look like he's stopping anytime soon...

The importance of self-isolation has been stressed globally...

And it has been proven that locking down public areas and avoiding social situations has helped reduce the chances of spreading the already out of control virus.

But despite the rapid rise in deaths and consistent warnings from health officials...

Many people continue to ignore the social distancing rules and go about their days as they please.

It's been made pretty clear that mass gatherings are not allowed to happen until further notice...

And this includes religious gatherings, such as going to church on a Sunday.

But it seems that some people are needing God urgently during these difficult times.

Scenes at the River Church in Tampa, Florida recently showed hundreds of people congregating to hear Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne deliver his Sunday Service.

The Pastor has vowed to never close his church...

Despite every doctor and scientist in the country saying social distancing is the only thing that will prevent the disease from spreading even more.

He clearly has very strong views on the matter.

The Pastor boasted his place was white-glove clean, saying, "We brought in 13 machines that basically kill every virus in the place, and uh, if somebody walks through the door it’s like, it kills everything on them. If they sneeze, it shoots it down at like 100 mph. It'll neutralize it in split seconds. We have the most sterile building in, I don’t know, all of America."

He is reluctant to abide by the rules.

"We are not stopping anything. I've got news for you, this church will never close. The only time the church will close is when the Rapture is taking place," he then said.

And it seems that Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has set a trend...

Thousands of people across the country have continued to attend church services.

Our country appears to be in 2 minds about the closures of places of worship...

Several governors have designated houses of worship as providing essential services, exempting them from shutdown orders, whilst in other states, places of worship are choosing to defy orders to shut their doors.

It's clear that some preachers aren't aware of the severity of this situation.

Jack Roberts, a seventy-six-year-old preacher at Maryville Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, said he would rather face a fine than close his doors. "I’m not interested in trying to defy the government," he said, "I don’t want to battle with anybody. What I’d like to do is just preach the gospel, and that’s become more difficult as time’s gone on. And it’s truthfully what I plan on doing."

Of course...

People online aren't happy about these congregations. And one pastor is determined to get the internet all riled up.

Pastor Tony Spell doesn't exactly have the best track record...

The Louisiana pastor, from the Life Tabernacle Church, is notoriously anti-LGBTQ and is a member of the homophobic group, Louisiana Family Forum, according to the LGBTQ community of Louisiana.

And he has really been outdoing himself during the pandemic by encouraging mass gatherings at his church.

Spell has recently faced charges for continuing to hold these gatherings, but this hasn't stopped him, as he was simply doing "what the Lord told him to do."

His comments surrounding the pandemic certainly didn't impress...

But regardless of his ignorant mindset, he still continues to boast a huge following...

And after he had told local media he was expecting around 2,000 heads, it looks like he certainly got what he wanted.

It is sickening to see hundreds of people crammed together in such a tight space...

And the internet completely agrees with us.

Amongst his loyal followers, people have been slamming the Pastor for his actions.

"You're an actor. Quite the performance. I've met you face to face. You hold no intellectual grasp of the gospel. You are an imposter of the utmost degree," one Facebook user wrote about the photo.

Spell needs to realize the severity of his actions very soon...

Or else more and more people will lose their lives to this deadly virus.

And If that wasn't enough, the Pastor is coming for your stimulus check...

via: Youtube

The controversial leader whipped up another flawless idea last month, which he calls the #PastorSpellStimulusChallenge.

At first, people praised the Spell for his actions, although some were a little skeptical.

He doesn't specify whether you should donate all your stimulus, but he is still encouraging people to donate as much as they can... and there's a devilish reason behind his plan.

You'd think a pastor would understand that people are in desperate need of their stimulus to stay afloat.

Then again, he doesn't seem to be the type of person too concerned with the wellbeing of his congregation.

As it turns out, the pastor was a wolf in sheep's clothing all along...

via: Twitter

Using the name of god to pocket the money from his, and many other churches...

But for now, it doesn't look like there's any limit to what Tony Spell can get away with...

via: Twitter

Since his "stimulus challenge" began on April 19, 205 people have given a percent of their stimulus checks to his church.

That includes outsiders that don't even belong to his church! He's clearly a pretty good con artist.

via: Twitter

Surprisingly, Spell would not reveal how much cash he's hauled in from the public.

Although if our calculations are correct, it's a whopping sum of money...

It's not impossible to believe that his wife was using this money to bail him out of jail! If each donor gave 10% of their $1,200 stimulus, that's juicy $24,600 straight into Spell's bank.

Although it could be a lot more as Spell was encouraging doting donors to give their full checks to "the church."

via: Twitter

Despite his recent run-in with the law, he continues to act like he's above it.

And he's not changing his mind any time soon...

This weekend he plans on leading another service, where he expects a bigger turnout than the 800 people last week, and his pockets will be better off for it. Keep scrolling to find out what happened to one pastor who refused to close his church...
