Kenneth Copeland Named In Top 100 Most Reputable People in the World

Kenneth Copeland is arguably one of the most sinister and perverse spiritual frauds on the face of the planet — throughout all of history. A man who has claimed anything from direct revelation from God to “lay hands” on an airplane to heal it to his high-profile meeting with the pope of Rome to affirm Catholicism and ecumenical unity, Copeland has defrauded millions out of millions of dollars (best estimates of around $760 million).

Somehow, in spite of his salacious appetite for money, Copeland has managed to land a place in the top 100 most reputable people in the world. Listed in the 48th spot — though, the order is alphabetical — the 2019 Reputation Poll names Kenneth Copeland while even acknowledging that he “has been identified as preaching a prosperity and abundance message, commonly referred to as the prosperity gospel, which has been criticized by ministers from various denominations.”

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

So how does a spiritual fraud land such a prominent position on such a poll? Seduction. He has a message of “hope” for a lost and dying world, and he’s found a way to play into the appetites of a carnally-minded individual. Through his prosperity gospel, also known as Word of Faith, he makes endless promises of financial success — most of which never come to fruition but leave the victim in a worse condition than before.

This works in much the same way as government-sponsored welfare — it creates a downward spiral of dependence on the message-giver, in this case, Kenneth Copeland, who promises that if you continue to “sow your seeds” of faith, you will eventually be blessed.

And who’s going to argue with someone who is a living, breathing, walking, talking example of financial success? Kenneth Copeland has sold his soul to Satan — and that’s how he’s managed to win the temporal success of this world.
