We attempted to interview pastor superstars Jesse Duplantis and Kenneth Copeland about their “prosperity gospel.” Here’s what happened.
Televangelist Kenneth Copeland enjoys a life of luxury. He has his own airport next to his mansion in Newark, Texas, where he keeps his private jets.
This video starts at a fairly high level of uncomfortability, and as it proceeds, flies right off the charts like an exploding thermometer from those old cartoons. Kenneth Copeland receives a surprise visit from Lisa Guerrero of Inside Edition, asking him questions about his lavish lifestyle and previous comments he has made about his followers being ‘demons’. Copeland by turns stutters before lapsing into silence, lashes out in a frenzied rage, and concludes with some very hard to watch hand kissing combined with some rather creepy comments that were intended to be compliments. You’re watching Kenneth ‘Crazy Eyes‘ Copeland at his finest, showing us the demon that he truly is.
“Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.” 1 Timothy 6:5 (KJV)
So what’s the takeaway from all this? Well, for one, it absolutely confirms everything we have ever said about him being a Laodicean fraud, a crook and a swindler. Guerrero is amazing in that she when she asks him about his life of luxury he not only doesn’t deny it, he brags about it. Secondly, watch his facial expressions. He breaks out into a huge inappropriate grin whenever she asks him the hardest questions, like the way someone who was a mental patient in a sanitorium might reply. Think ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ and you’ll get what I mean.
If you are one of his followers, sit under his preaching, and are able to support his ministry without any warning bells from the Holy Spirit going off in your head, then guess what? It’s a high likelihood that you’ve never been saved according to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV). You should think about that.
Preacher Kenneth Copeland Defends His Lavish Lifestyle in Full Interview
FROM INSIDE EDITION: When Inside Edition’s Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero caught up with him in Branson, Missouri, he spoke to her at length about his lifestyle and why he says the jets are important to his ministry.
“If I flew commercial, I’d have to stop 65% of what I’m doing,” he said. Guerrero asked him about a previous comment he made saying he doesn’t fly commercial because he doesn’t “want to get into a tube with a bunch of demons.”
“Do you really believe that human beings are demons?” she asked.
“No, I do not and don’t you ever say I did,” Copeland responded as he pointed his finger at her. source

Inside Edition Reviews The Ministry Of Kenneth Copeland
You’ve seen them on TV, popular televangelists who preach the gospel to millions around the world. You may be surprised that these men of God are living a lifestyle few could imagine. Jesse Duplantis and Kenneth Copeland drive fancy cars and live in lavish mansions. They also fly in private jets. It’s impossible to know exactly how much money these ministries take in each year because they are not required to make financial disclosures of donations they receive and all of it is tax exempt.
