Why Morris Cerullo Burned His Brand-New Building Contract On-Stage
Morris Cerullo's latest move has his ministry's vice presidents talking in a new video posted last Friday. During the final day of Morris Cerullo World Evangelism (MCWE)'s 49th Annual World Conference in San Antonio, Texas, Cerullo reportedly burned the contract of the newly-built Legacy Center on-stage.
Greg Mauro, vice president of ministries at MCWE, says Cerullo burned it "for the glory of God," to symbolize the ministry's freedom from debt.
"Brother Cerullo brought on the platform in the closing service the contract for the construction costs of this entire Legacy project," Mauro says in the video. "... God told Brother Cerullo, 'Build this Legacy Center debt-free.' I believe this is God's year for us to step into a debt-free miracle. So he brought that contract, [and] because of the giving of the partners in the conference and so many who have given, we were able to ... do something I've never seen in 32 years. [Cerullo] took the contract, and we were able to light that thing on fire for the glory of God—burn it—because it was paid in full."
Greg Hodson, vice president of television at MCWE, called the act "remarkable" and "quite brilliant and incendiary."
