Kenneth Copeland Covid-19
During the pandemic of COVID-19, Copeland repeatedly got attention for his comments and actions in response to the outbreak. On March 11, 2020, Copeland claimed to heal viewers of his TV show of the disease, asking them to touch the television set as he prayed for them.
As many lost their jobs in the economic crisis that the outbreak caused, Copeland told followers to continue paying tithes even if they lost their jobs.
In a broadcast, Copeland called it a weak strain of the flu, and that fear of it was sin and putting faith in the devil. Copeland said that he did not agree with pastors that canceled their services due to the coronavirus, saying “I want you in my church. If we have to pass out thermometers. If we find one with a fever, let’s get him healed right there. What if you do get it? Big deal!”
Kenneth Copeland has repeatedly said during the pandemic that it has ended or will soon end. He said at one point that God told him that it would soon be over as Christians’ prayers have overwhelmed it, and that the pandemic was brought to America by “displays of hate” towards president Donald Trump by critics, which had interfered with “divine protection”. On March 29th, 2020, in a televised sermon, Copeland claimed COVID-19 “…is finished. It is over.” On March 30th, 2020 the count of known cases in the USA increased by approximately 20,300.
On April 5th, the televangelist summoned the “wind of God” to destroy the novel coronavirus. Before blowing at the camera, he said: “I blow the wind of God on you. You are destroyed forever, and you’ll never be back. Thank you, God. Let it happen. Cause it to happen.”
Leading a chant surrounded by members of his church and preaching to an empty room, he called out: “Wind, almighty, strong, south wind, Heat: Burn this thing, in the name of Jesus. I say, you bow your knees. You fall on your face.”
1. Copeland declares the wind of God to blow to destroy COVID-19. 2. He then says it doesn’t have to be a fast wind. 3. Then the Lord tells him “It’s even better if there’s no wind at all. 🤔 🤷♂️ pic.twitter.com/tFWc7Mv8lD
