As a Judeo-Christian/Messianic Jew, these people are deeply offensive to me. Non-believers and agnostics watch these kinds of antics and it makes them want no part of the Bible. How can "minsters" and "evangelicals" increase the flock by engaging in this sort of mocking, ridiculous behavior that, to me, borders on the demonic?
Watch Kenneth Copeland, revered by millions, as he rebukes President-Elect Biden's win with laughter:
Let's not forget the success he had destroying COVID-19 forever by blowing the Wind of God back in April of this year:
As a prosperity preacher Kenneth Copeland has a net worth of around $300 million, and for somebody who talks about Jesus Christ as much as he does, I can't help but wonder how much thought he gives to Matthew 19:16-24.
Then we have Trump's personal spiritual adviser (who is on the White House payroll), another prosperity preacher named Paula White, praying for victory the day after the election. Please DO NOT miss the part when she starts "speaking in tongues" around the 50-second point. Strangely, during this prayer she calls for angels from Africa and South America to come HERE -- from the same places her boss (Trump, not the Lord) called "shit-hole countries" and warned us of migrants from these places coming in caravans to rape and murder Americans. Classic irony.
These people don't represent anything to do with my religion. I worship the God of Abraham. I don't need to own a jet or a mansion to prove to anyone that God is Good. I can only keep trying to live up to the teachings of Jesus and Moses and the Prophets and the Apostles. No matter how much I fail at this, no matter how bad things get, I still know and will always know that God is Good. I wish my life could better reflect that, but I'd rather be the peasant that I am for the rest of my time on this planet than to have millions of dollars and act foolish in videos that cause potential Believers to doubt everything that is Holy.
