On Monday, Christian scamvangelist Kenneth Copeland began a week-long “Southwest Believer’s Convention” in Fort Worth, Texas that is expecting a total of 2,500 guests in the indoor convention center. (Your guess as to how many will be around by the end of it…)
Setting aside how Copeland has been declaring the end of COVID for months now, oblivious to (or purposely ignorant of) how he’s completely wrong, there was a moment when he told the crowd how much money his ministry had raked in via donations on the first day alone….
In short, the budget for his event was $1,132,000. But on Day One, offerings amounted to $1,345,129. He’s already hundreds of thousands of dollars in the black and there are many more days to go.
(Attendance at this event is free but there are constant calls for donations.)
Moral of the story: Whatever you’re doing right now, you’re in the wrong line of work.
If you didn’t care about putting people’s lives in jeopardy, and had no personal ethics, and had no qualms about telling people that handing you their money would eventually lead to God rewarding them (but never following up to make sure that was the case), you might be able to give Copeland a run for the title of richest televangelist in the country.
