(NY DAILY NEWS ) – This preacher’s wife has no reason to be late to church.
Megachurch Pastor John Gray bought his wife Aventer a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus for their eight year anniversary, which he felt a need to explain on a 23 minute clip on Facebook after catching a lot of flak.
Ironically, Gray, who said he started preaching in 1994, started the video with a transportation metaphor.
“I want to thank the people who have been walking with me,” the Greenville, S.C. based holy man said before explaining the lavish present.
“The reason my wife and i wanted to have an eight-year wedding celebration is because I needed a new beginning — eight is the number of new beginnings,” he said.
He also clarified that being a pastor is just his job and he’s a husband first.
“Don’t confuse what I do with who I am,” he said.
Gray, wearing a black hoodie with is church logo emblazoned on it, alternates between speaking with the hood on and with it off as his moods change during the video.
