Jesus Needs Money: After warning his followers that even if they lose their job because of the coronavirus pandemic they must keep giving him money because Jesus needs money, sleazy televangelist Kenneth Copeland thanks his donors for buying him a new jet airplane.

… You like my pretty suit? You should! You bought it!
Well, which is more important? The one that wore the suit or the one that paid for it? Are you listening to me? I know you are. Praise God.
Those of you — those of you CX Team members [a reference to his “elite” donors] that got involved with the new interior of the Gulfstream V, they’re doing the extended test flight on it today! It will be in Fort Worth tomorrow. Or maybe the next day. And you know what they said? Now this man works on Gulfstreams all the time. He puts interiors in Gulfstreams all the time. And he told Duane [Flanagain], our chief pilot, he said, “Duane,” he said… “I think this is probably the finest G5 in the world.”
The things that you — who? — you — no? Partners did on this airplane. Finest in the world. Hallelujah.

Fear of this coronavirus is faith in its ability to hurt you or kill you. The fear of ‘What are we gonna do? I’m getting laid off at work!’
Hey! Your job’s not your source. If it is, you’re in trouble. Jesus is your source! Whatever you do right now, don’t you stop tithing! Don’t you stop sowing offerings.
‘Well, they won’t let us go to church!’
Well, email it in, then! Text together. Something. But you get your tithe in that church if you have to go take it down there and drop it off… stick it under the door or something. You get that tithe in that church, you get that offering in that church, and then you go home and do what you’re supposed to do.
Also last month, the televangelist made headlines after claiming that he could cure viewers of the coronavirus if they touched his oily hand through their television set during his televised ministry.
In that video Copeland declared:
… Put your hand on that television set. Hallelujah. Thank you, Lord Jesus. He received your healing. Now say it: “I take it. I have it. It’s mine. I thank you and praise you for it…”
According to the Word of God, I am healed. And I consider not my own body. I consider not symptoms in my own body, but only that which God has promised. Only that what the Word has said. And by His stripes, I was healed. And by His stripes, I am healed now. I am not the sick trying to get healed. I am the healed, and the Devil is trying to give me the flu!… Or whatever else kind of thing he’s trying.

The stupid, it burns. But it can also be quite profitable.
