I am now getting home from the 90 minute service and I can tell you, FRAUD was all over this service.
TUESDAY NIGHT SERVICE-FEBRUARY 17, 2009 7:00 PM FENTON, MO
I arrive around 6:45p.m. to get a good seat. As service starts, I notice this church is packed. It's really sad though. Pastor David is leading this "packed" church to HELL, but I will get to that later. Worship starts and I must admit their worship is very good. There was 4 women and ONE man. Hmm? For a church that preaches on taking care of your temple, these worship leaders don't. Three of the women were out of shape and looked as if some of them either have a beer belly or is pregnant. I look around and I don't see Pastor David? Hmm? Are we having a guest speaker tonight? WRONG! Out walks Pastor David Crank THIRTY minutes later. The worship is pretty much over. I tell ya, these TV preachers think they are GOD. I'm sure he was in the back "praying" right? WRONG! He wanted to make a grand entrance. I am a christian myself, so don't think I am personally against Christians. I'm against people like Pastor David Crank who uses the economy to scare the church members into giving money so he can write $60,000 checks to the Bank as CRANK mentioned numerous times during the service. More on that later.
So, Pastor Crank...Wait, he is not a real Pastor so I will drop the "Pastor" title. So CRANK takes over and begins his message in a Ambercrombie and Fitch shirt, wrinkled blue jeans and cowboy boats. Way to represent our God. I doubt your "boy" Joel Osteen would dress like that. More on his new found relationship with Joel Osteen and Billy Graham. FYI, just because you wear jeans, doesn't mean you are reaching the lost. Joel Osteen wears a tailored suit every Sunday and he has a church of 50,000. Crank, God will NEVER use you like that. GUARANTEE IT!
Crank starts to preach and correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Crank was claiming to be a Pastor NOT a politician or civil rights leader? All he spoke on tonight was the economy, give him and his wife money and "we shall over come." Let me tell ya, Crank needs to stick to his day job of preaching rather than trying to be a FAKE Martin Luther King and politician. Now that I think about it, his preaching is much so I guess he is trying something new. LoL
Crank and his 11 feet tall wife are RACISTS. Crank trashed Barack Obama throughout his ENTIRE message. "Barack is doing this wrong, that wrong, he's as worse as Bush, he's nothing. He is STUPID to sign this bill." All this coming from a "Pastor" and I use that word losely. This is why Pastors shouldn't involve politics with Religion. Crank, your "boy" Joel Osteen doesn't talk politics. When you go to New York and do that ENORMOUS video you talked about tonight, you might want to take notes from him. Throughout the entire night, he told jokes. Pastor or Comedian? He was a comedian tonight. FYI, Joel Osteen tells ONE joke, and then feeds the congregation. The crowd tonight STARVED!
So while he is preaching, I'm wondering why they haven't collected an offering? He starts teaching on MONEY and the ECONOMY..typical TV preachers, and I'm thinking this is his offering teaching. Little did I know, he was preaching his message.
THE MESSAGE: Throughout the message, It was all about MONEY and why they should CONTINUE to give to feed the GREEDY pockets of DAVID AND NICOLE. Continuing with the racist theme, throughout the night he insults the Finance Manager of Japan saying he was "DRUNK" and on "CRACK." He started speaking like a Japanese person, making fun of their language. Remember everyone, this is a "Pastor." Your "Role Model." God's hand picked right? Right? WRONG! Crank went on and continued to bad mouth our president, city leaders and government. CRANK: If you have a problem with the USA, LEAVE! Instead of listing all their faults, be a real man of God and PRAY for them. We all should pray for our city leaders EVERYDAY! I would love to spot light your life. How about you tell everybody about why BOTH you and Nicole are DIVORCED? Thats not God's best. Thats clearly outlined in the New Testament. How can the "leaders" of the flock teach on marriage and counseling when they can't even stay married? Crank, might want to learn from Joel Osteen again. Both him and Victoria have been married for 20 plus years. Neither are DIVORCED!
Keeping with the money theme, Crank starts listing off what EVERYTHING cost. What? Thats right. He told how this cost $13,000-CASH. That cost $20,000-Cash....On and on. This church wants to be feed some meat; NOT how well you and Nicole are scaming people with your false, prosperity gospel. Then he mentions the MILLIONS of dollars it cost for them to be on a trashy network like ABC with their cheap camera equipment. If you ever watch their program, their image is NOT good. You can tell their equipment isn't much. Crank, once again take a look at Joel Osteen. First off, they are on a REAL network, TBN-Trinity Broadcasting Network. When you get there Crank, then you can brag. Secondly, EVERYONE knows that Joel and Lakewood Church have the FINEST camera equipment, so you might want to learn from that "great" friend of yours on how to look legit. I find it funny that him and Joel became oh so great friends, AFTER the church donated $10,000 to him.
He brags on how he doens't ask for money on his broadcasts...Oh, that means your legit right? He then mentions ALL the ministries they support. What does the bible say about doing good works? "Don't let your right hand no what your lefthand his thinking." Crank, you better enjoyed that, because you won't blessed. You gave with the WRONG motives.
Then Crank turns into Benny Hinn and has a prophecy for EVERYONE! Including me! Crank is a fake. Please don't fall prey to him. He rambles on about TV is bad, yet he is a party guy? Thanks for telling us that you and Nicole still party. Hmm, I think I am forgetting what a Christian is?
So he walks down into the crowd like he's Jesus. I thought he was going to pull a Benny Hinn and start laying hands on people. He finally wraps up his message on MONEY and the ECONOMY...Basically, this message was a pub to get more money. Then he busts out, "Make your checks payable to Faith Church St. Louis." Wow! Saves it for lasts but he gets straight to the point.
Conclusion: Overall, packed crowd. Two big jumbo trons and bright lights. I noticed that this gulliable crowd was easily amused by EVERYTHING Crank said. Crank definitly has them brainwashed. Cult anyone? He bragged about how him and Joel Osteen are BEST FRIENDS. He bragged about the Billy Graham tour, etc. There is NOTHING humble about this man. I will be attending ALL THREE services Sunday and post my observations on here. Thats right Crank, your not the only one that can do three services!!! The bible talks about in the last days, false teachers will come. David Crank is one of them. His wife Nicole is to. As a fellow christian, it is my duty to WARN people about FRAUDS. For everyone who was at the event tonight, tell me if you didn't think it was odd that he talked NOTHING but about money?
Crank is part of the Word of Faith movement. You lift of you hands..BOOM, your saved. NOT TRUE. He preaches a prosperity message on how to make money. To quote hime tonight, "Lord, let our church have the most millionaires." What? Real preaches like BAYLESS CONLEY would say, "Lord, let our church have the most souls saved." That is a real PASTOR, MAN OF GOD AND ALL THE ABOVE. Crank twists around the scriptures of the Lord ADDING to the church. It doesn't say the Lord added another building so you can pad your pockets. This new church they have won't last because they bought it with the wrong motives. Souls won't be saved, lives won't be changed. This ISN'T the church for "you" as they say.
FINAL POINT: For those currently going to this church or for those looking into this church, I hope you find this warning. Stay away from David and Nicole Crank. They are greedy, materialistic frauds that want your money. During tonight, I wasn't greeted by any greeters or ushers. The so called "pastors" didn't greet me. I guess since I'm not tithing to them they can care less about me. For anyone that doens't believe me, go see this man in person at their TWO locations. Personally try and greet him and he MIGHT look you in the eye ONCE. I guess he is so important. To conclude, stay away from this church. Your soul is to important. Don't let David and Nicole lead you to hell with the gospel on how to get rich. Crank teaches if you speak it, you'll become a millionaire. Throughout the entire night, money was mentioned. For those needing a church, Church on the Rock in St. Peters, Grace Church in Maryland Heights or St. Louis Family Church in Chesterfield are all good bible based church. Trust me, you will get feed spiritually.
For the Lord says, "Get up and LEAVE, FAITH CHURCH ST. LOUIS.COM." Heed the warning from the Lord!
P.S. By the way Crank, if you are such a humble man, that means you are open to criticism right? You see, people see things about yourself Crank, that you don't see about yourself. Humble men might not agree with their criticics, but they learn from them. Cranks faults...
-Doesn't greet congregation
-Thinks he is God, but in reality is NOTHING..Remember, God doesn't need you. You need him...Keeping that in mind should keep your head the right size.
-Crank is arrogant, a know-it all, prideful, NOT shocked this man has been divorced and married a divorced women.
-Crank is stingy. The man won't let anyone else preach. Here me loudly Crank: Other than you and your giant wife, you have other people God can use that can deliver the word of god, rather they are young or old...God uses everybody. Put your ego away and award those that are faithful to deliver the word of God.
-He hates black people. Any African Americans, personally walk up to Crank and see what he does. Be careful, he might pull out his cap, as he and his wife are leaders of the the Clan rally. (KKK)
-Preaches false prosperity money gospel
-If you can't benefit Crank in anyway, he will drop you Basically, Crank will be held liable for all the souls he is leading to HELL. Sadly to say, I think It is to late for Crank to save himself.
