    My prayers are with you Pastor Dollar. You are the best judge of what goes on in your home with your family and don’t let the world tell you any different. Also, see 1Peter, vs. 12-13. God Bless.

    Punishment is done with love. If his daughter felt she had to go to the extreme of calling the police, there’s an obvious problem that goes deeper than loving punishment. I see Creflo as a bully, a man that loves to be the “KING” to dominate and have control and will intimidate, to lord his power over you. That is NOT love……

  5. Im not saying he should have disciplined her like he did men shouldnt hit their daughters. he should have let mom smack her upside the head. I wish my kids would talk to my like they didnt have no sense. Who knows what happened she was probably being loud and disrespectful trying to be grown. Oh well…she learned that day well hell they both learned
