Their sins? Reportedly, did not buy him an expensive watch.
Kansas City Reverend Carlton Funderburke was caught on video with congregation members commenting that he would not buy a Movado watch.

"Am I unworthy of your Louis Vuitton? Am I unworthy of your Prada? Am I unworthy of your Gucci?
Founder Burke founded the church with his wife, Reverend Silvarena Funderburke.
In a video posted to Facebook, Funderburke says in the video that he asked for the watch last year.
"Kick down the door and let me talk to my cheap sons and daughters," he says.
Funderburke later released an apology video.
"There is no context to obliterate the words I used. I apologize to everyone I've hurt, offended, or hurt with my words.
"For those who know and love me, thank you for your support," he said. I regret that my first impression is one of anger, hatred and resentment."
