“Hello Satan, how are you … Mr. Zero.”
Kenneth Copeland has been the center of controversy since we first reported on him bragging about his multi-million dollar private jet with Jesse Duplantis in 2015. Since then, Copeland has made multiple attempts at repairing his public image by defending himself against accusations of fleecing people for personal gain. Of course, this is exactly what Kenneth Copeland and every other prosperity gospel preacher do.
But greed and selfish gain (1 Timothy 6:3-5) aren’t the only problems with the prosperity gospel movement — it is wrought with false doctrine and dangerous practices.
In the video below, you can see that after Copeland spends an inordinate amount of his “sermon” time bragging about the private jet he bought from Tyler Perry (then asking for help from his congregation to finish paying for all the upgrades), you can see him literally praying to Satan in the same prayer that he “prays” to God.
Justin Peters also noted this on Twitter:
Contending with Satan is not a practice Christians are to partake in. According to Scripture, it is God alone who has the power to rebuke Satan, as even Michael the Archangel would not do so, according to Jude 9-10.
