Televangelist Kenneth Copeland Cancelled, To Be Replaced By Instagram ‘Influencer’ August 19, 2020

Thoughts and Prayers: Christian television network TBN has announced that they have cancelled televangelist Kenneth Copeland’s long running program “Believer’s Voice of Victory.”

Christian Post reports:

Trinity Broadcasting Network said it will no longer air shows from controversial televangelist Kenneth Copeland starting in October as part of a series of upcoming programming changes at the international Christian television network.

Kenneth Copeland Ministries and TBN have had a business relationship for some 40 years, with the network airing Copeland’s “Believer’s Voice of Victory.”

Copeland will be replaced by megachurch pastor and Instagram “influencer” Steven Furtick. Religion News Service reports:

Trinity Broadcasting Network said it will no longer air the daily Texas-based Kenneth Copeland Ministries program known as “Believer’s Voice of Victory.” Instead, the network will replace it with programming by Steven Furtick, a megachurch pastor who is widely known for his appearances on PreachersNSneakers, an Instagram account that features influencer pastors and their expensive shoes.

Christian Post explains that Copeland, a proponent of the prosperity gospel, “has a reported net worth of around $300 million and is the owner of two private jets and two twin-engine planes.”

Recently Copeland claimed 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.

And Last March Copeland ordered his followers to keep giving to his ministry, even if they lost their jobs:

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.

Bottom line: Televangelist Kenneth Copeland has been cancelled by the Christian network TBN and will be replaced by megachurch pastor and Instagram “influencer” Steven Furtick.
