The Harmful Teachings of Kenneth and Gloria Copleand: What’s Wrong with the Prosperity Gospel?

Posted by soldierservant on September 18, 2007

After reading up on these sites about
Copeland,which my family are deep into,has really made me think.I know
there is an awful lot of sites exposing him and thought where there is a
lot of smoke there must be a fire.It also made me think of what exactly
is being taught and comparing it with scripture.most of these teachings
are unbiblical.It is not merely because of promoting wealth which there
are scriptures to prove that,but is how they go about it.They guaranteee
wealth by some systematic formula and the bible teaches no such thing.I
understand now why Paul said such teachings were divisive and the source
of much strife because it relies on our perfection and not God’s.It is
pure judgmental hypocrisy that condemns someone because of their
financial status.From other sites I found out that Copeland is teaching
that Jesus was raped by homosexual roman soldiers,which would have
prevented his sacrifice from being pure.He has denied that AIDS came
about as consequence of immorality.This confirms a thought that has come
to my mind that the likes of Copeland do not speak out against
homosexuality.Maybe in fact the reason he is wealthy is from homosexual
contributers.That explains his stance on AIDS.This message is good and
might want to put it up on the blog,or least parts of it.I also heard
just recenly that congress shot down this mexican truck deal that Bush
forced on us.Maybe there is hope for the congress after all. Bush is not
going to get away with his crap.But it shows you the foolishness of
those who still support him after he tries to screw us left and
right.They still expect good from evil.

Now this site

 is good .It doesn’t totally bash the Copelands but raises
honest questions about their teachings.A lot of these teachings are
totally unscriptural. Jesus didn’t go around condemning the poor for not
having faith. He didn’t promise them they would get rich if if they
chanted some prosperity mantra. Everywhere I look in the scriptures, like
in the epistles it was the teachings of godliness as a mean of financial
that was the source of strife and contention. I understand those
scriptures now though I had not before. All these false teachings of
prosperity is putting faith in the arm of the flesh or in our own
goodness, which the bible says are nothing but filthy rags, instead of
putting faith in God and his righteousness.These teachings cause strife
because they condemn anyone that is poor as not having enough
faith,putting more trust in words than in God’s goodness and favor.THERE
IS ABSOLUTELY NO BIBLICAL PROOF FOR SUCH LIES!A lot of these teachings
are rooted in newage like that Robert Schuller,who I know firsthand is a
newage wackjob.All this is not to say I believe in all negative but I
take God’s word for what it says without adding to or twisting it.The
bible itself gives clear warning of those who add to it. I personally am
believing and praying for God’s blessing but don’t make it into a
cultish ritual. Never was there an example in the bible of one who got
rich from positive confession. These teachings are rooted in christian
science,which is a known cult. It is also a total lie from hell that
those who are rich are more spiritual.Even the bible says that the
wicked prosper and to not be jealous of their wealth.All these teachings
do is inspire condemnation and superficality and judgmentalism.You can’t
get any more judgmental by condemning one’s spiritual condition by their
financial condition.These are liars on the pulpit they say that if you
are not rich then you aren’t spiritual.If anything the opposite is
true.Those who are rich have sold out to the god of this world.How else
would you explain the wealth of homosexuals?It is pure blasphemy to say
that homosexuals are more spiritual than we are!These are proud
blasphemers.They are self righteous,so full of themselves.I heard Jesse
Duplantis recently and he was superficial and judgmental.He is good on
some things but is legalistic and hypocritical.A lot of these preachers
are con men.A lot are now being exposed for tax fraud and stealing from
their own church.I don’t put my trust in charlatons,only God and his
word.It is only by God’s word that we are able to judge what is right
from what is wrong.If someone doesn’t line up with the teaching of God’s
word then they are a liar and deceiver and are not of God.These
preachers never explain why homosexuals are rich.They probably never
speak out against homosexuality,which makes you have to wonder about
them.That may be how they get their wealth.The gospel of Christ is
supposed to be relevant with our culture and dealing with all these sin
issues.Just them ignoring these issues prove how false they are.I know
the blessings of God are not conditional.unlike these false teachings
teach
that you have to have a perfect confession in order for it to work.God
will bless who He will bless no matter what.Even in the midst of a bad
economy.Jesus fed the multitudes without a confession.He only gave
thanks to God.TRUE VICTORY DOESN’T DEPEND ON POSITIVE CONFESSION BUT
ONLY IN GRATITUDE AND PRAISES TO GOD.PAUL AND SILAS WEREN’T RELEASED
FROM PRISON BY POSITIVE CONFESSION BUT BY PRAISING GOD.ISRAEL WON THEIR
PAST WARS BY PRAISING GOD,NOT POSITIVE CONFESSION.I hope my message and
this link help open your eyes to the one and only biblical truth.This is
why you need to read the bible for yourself without someone else’s spin
on it. Read it all,even the scriptures you don’t like.
