Kenneth Copeland is a Degenerate Pulpit Pimp!!!

copeland devil

Sorry for such a blunt assessment, but I have been stoked (yet again) to righteous anger and indignation, thanks to more ungodly bastardization of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ.

My goal is to provide more of the meat of the Word of God so that the counterfeits are glaringly apparent (Hebrews 5:12-14), but I have to call a degenerate pimp out when he (or she) tries to pass off evil as good.

Such is the case with the unrepentant vile wolf Kenneth Copeland:

Investing in the gospel of getting rich

FORT WORTH – Onstage before thousands of believers weighed down by debt and economic insecurity, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and their all-star lineup of “prosperity gospel” preachers delighted the crowd with anecdotes about the luxurious lives they had attained by following the Word of God.

Private airplanes and boats. A motorcycle sent by an anonymous supporter. Vacations in Hawaii and cruises in Alaska. Designer handbags. A ring of emeralds and diamonds.

“God knows where the money is, and he knows how to get the money to you,” preached Mrs. Copeland, dressed in a crisp pants ensemble like those worn by C.E.O.’s.

Even in an economic downturn, preachers in the “prosperity gospel” movement are drawing sizable, adoring audiences. Their message — that if you have sufficient faith in God and the Bible and donate generously, God will multiply your offerings a hundredfold — is reassuring to many in hard times.

The preachers barely acknowledged the recession, though they did say it was no excuse to curtail giving. “Fear will make you stingy,” Mr. Copeland said.

As I sit here fighting my “false teacher/pulpit pimp/degenerate wolf” gag-reflex that vipers like Copeland trigger, I am continually saddened and angered that people still follow these morally bankrupt charlatans. As I’ve stated in many previous articles, the “Prosperity Gospel” has been rendered false LONG AGO – if you still “live in lack” after “sowing” even $1 to these fools, then you have proven them to be LIARS! Come on people, they tell you that God is going to bless you if you pay them, yet you still chase behind them throwing money – and you get poorer as THEY GET RICHER!

Stories like this make me want to move to the mountains and just wait for the Apocalypse:

Sitting in Section 316, eight rows up, making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on a Bible at lunch time, was a family who could explain the enduring loyalty the prosperity preachers inspire.

Stephen Biellier, a long-distance trucker from Mount Vernon, Mo., said he and his wife, Millie, came to the convention praying that this would be “the overcoming year.” They are $102,000 in debt, and the bank has cut off their credit line, Mrs. Biellier said.

They say the Copelands rescued them from financial failure 23 years ago, when they bought their first truck at 22 percent interest and had to rebuild the engine twice in a year.

Around that time, Mrs. Biellier first saw Mr. Copeland on television and began sending him 50 cents a week.

Others who bought trucks from the same dealer in Joplin that year went under, the Bielliers said, but they did not.

“We would have failed if Copeland hadn’t been praying for us every day,”Mrs. Biellier said.

What the…..? There has to be a hidden camera somewhere trying to capture my incredulous reaction to this crap, because these folks can’t be serious…can they?

Let me make sure I understand this correctly: You almost failed financially 23 years ago until Kenny Boy “rescued” you through “prayer” (to whom, I wonder…). So you start sending Kenny Boy 50 cents each week (which is roughly $600 today), and now you’re in the hole to the tune of $102,000…AND YOU’RE BACK AGAIN?

Was there no evaluation of spending – or even debt counseling IN 23 YEARS? If Kenny Boy really prayed for your prosperity, wouldn’t you “still” be prosperous now? Either Kenny is a false teaching liar, or God is a liar – and we KNOW GOD DOES NOT LIE (Numbers 23:19).

So these folks sit in the nosebleed section of an arena – making peanut butter sandwiches for Christ’s sake – waiting for another “miracle”.

But wait – there’s more to this story…and this almost made me throw my laptop across the room:

The Bielliers were at the convention a few years ago when a supporter made a pitch for people to join an “Elite CX Team” to raise money to buy the ministry a Citation X airplane. (Mr. Copeland is an airplane aficionado who got his start in ministry as a pilot for Oral Roberts.) At that moment, Mrs. Biellier said she heard the voice of the Holy Spirit telling her, “You were born to support this man.”

She gave $2,000 for the plane, and recently sent $1,800 for the team’s latest project: buying high-definition television equipment to upgrade the ministry’s international broadcasts.

Mrs. Biellier said some friends and relatives would say the preacher just wanted their money. She explained that the Copelands did not need the money for themselves; it is for their ministry. And besides, even “trashy people like Hugh Hefner” have private airplanes.

“I remember Copeland had to once fly halfway around the world to talk to one person,” she said. “Because we’re partners with Kenneth Copeland, for every soul that gets saved, we get credit for that in heaven.”

That’s it – I can’t type anymore. I am officially DONE!

Read the rest of the story if you dare. Don’t bother praying for Copeland and other degenerates who spit in God’s face by placing millstones of debt around their necks (See Jeremiah 7, Jeremiah 11, and Jeremiah 14 for full context).

Pray for the decieved, that (God willing) they would repent of their desires of the flesh and the lust for “material prosperity”. And pray that the next would-be wolf will be convicted while there is still time for he or she to repent.

The “Root” Of The Word Of Faith Heresy

Last week, I posted a few articles on Justin Peters and his ministry in exposing the wicked origins of the WOF heresy that is choking the church today. You can’t rail against Creflo Dollar, Ken and Gloria Copeland, and other vipers of the day without digging a little deeper at the root of their heretical allegiance to the false gospel of health and wealth.

Our brother Escapeetoo over at Pimp Escape has posted an excellent article entitled “The Word of Faith Movement – Who’s Your Great-Granddaddy?”:

While a member in Club Hustle & Flow I heard over and over the importance of “Sonship.” Over and over we’d hear the story of the “family tree”; from Jakes, to Eddie Long to Andre Landers, the pseudo Levitical order was set like cement into the minds of the giving units at “Club Hustle & Flow.”

But one long lost family member was left out in this family tree. One member that is considered the father of the Word of Faith Prosperity Gospel Theology running wild in the church today. That missing branch on the family tree is that of Korv Essek William Kenyon [aka] E. W. Kenyon (1867–1948).

Click on the title above to read the entire article. Like me, that brother fled New Birth South (or “Club Hustle & Flow” as he calls it), and did some research on E.W. Kenyon. He too has seen the root of Kenyon’s wicked metaphysical philosophy up close and personally.

Yet more evidence that the “name it and claim it” heresy is in fact a tenet of metaphysical philosophy, and not the Word of God – no matter how bad these wolves and vipers twist scripture to make it appear biblically sound.

 

A Sorely Needed Call For Discernment

***hat tip to reader Caron for introducing me to Justin Peters’ ministry***

Justin Peters is a Mississippi-based minister who presents a seminar entitled “A Call For Discernment”. In the seminar, Justin succinctly debunks the “trifecta” of the Word of Faith (WOF) heresy:

  1. You can “speak those things that be not” and they will magically appear
  2. We are all “little gods” and can do what God does
  3. The heartbreaking reality of how people are taken in by phony faith healers

Below are 4 videos (about 34 minutes total) of Justin addressing students at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary – his alma mater – a few years ago. Sitting at a lectern (as the result of his cerebral palsy), Justin quietly and calmy takes great detail to warn the students about the dangers of those who preach “a different gospel”.

“A Call For Discernment” – Part 1 [8:07]

“A Call For Discernment” – Part 2 [9:58]

“A Call For Discernment” – Part 3 [9:14]

“A Call For Discernment” – Part 4 [5:16]

Pray that the Lord would continue to use Justin and others like Him to shine the light of truth on the dark apostasy and heresy that grips Christ’s church today…

 

Biblical Teaching Vs. Motivational Speaking

Many of the saints are deceived by charismatic and theatrical preaching because it tickles the ear and satisfies our desire to be entertained.

I’m of the firm belief that many folks enjoy watching their pastor hoop, sing a bible verse, prance back and forth across the stage, and lay hands on people on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings.

“My pastor sure can preach” or “Bishop Jones is a bible teacher!”, they’ll say to their friends and coworkers while encouraging them to visit their church.

In reality, if your pastor relies on theatrics, philosophical illustrations, or the “Holy Spirit” to “fall” during service so that he “can’t even preach because the glory is so heavy” – then he neither teaches OR preaches…he entertains.

Many people are even deceived by the “easy going” and “welcoming demeanor” or Rick Warren and Joel Osteen. These guys barely ruffle a feather when they preach, but they sure do reel you in by “motivating” you to live your “best life now” or be driven by your “purpose”.

The tragedy is that the sheep have been entertained & “motivated” for so long (many for most of their lives), that they would consider expository preaching to be “too boring”.

Here’s an accurate description of expository preaching from Wikipedia:

Expository preaching differs from topical preaching in that the former concentrates on a specific text and discusses topics covered therein, whereas the latter concentrates on a specific topic and references texts covering the topic.

In other words, many pastors eisegete the Word of God instead of properly exegeting it.

The video below does a great job of explaining the basis of sound bible teaching, and how far the pimps have strayed (and stayed) away from it by only quoting a scripture to use it as a basis to preach their personal philosophy:

Some of the voices you hear in the audio portion of the video are (surprise) Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, and Fred Price.

Yet another reason to study the Word of God for yourself and avoid wolves, pimps, and hustlers who attempt to misuse His Holy Word to fleece you.

***hat tip to Real Christianity for the video***
