  1. I look forward to reading your book.

  2. Are you saying that all gold dust phenomenon were fake? Or you are just saying that some of them were fake?

    • I believe all of them were faked. Why else would the two most prominent gold dust ministers both die of cancer less than a year of each other? God killed two men in the old testament for faking a miracle, and that is what the gold dust is, fake miracles.

  3. I’ve just finished writing a book, The Contradiction of God – Why Everything You Thought You Knew About God Is Wrong, that may be of some interest to you. It is an examination of the the well-known words of God through the prophet Isaiah, “My thoughts are not your thoughts”.

    Instead of defining His thoughts as what they “are”, like the rest of us do, apparently God finds it more illuminating to simply define them as what they “are not”. And what are His thoughts “not”? Astonishingly, Isaiah declares in no uncertain terms, that they are simply “not your thoughts”. And not by just a little, here and there, now and again, but apparently, “My thoughts are not your thoughts”, every time and everywhere, without exception, by an immeasurable difference, “as high as the heavens are above the earth” according to His very own unimpeachable Self-Expert testimony. And that utterly contradictory thought, if you really think about it, simply changes every other thought about His thoughts.

    In fact, if that is not your ground-zero hermeneutic, you are guaranteed, without exception, to wind up precisely as far from His thoughts “as the heavens are above the earth”.

    A free PDF copy of the book (326 pages) can be downloaded at TheContradictionofGod.org

    Love in Christ,


  4. Why do so many people try and tear down someone whom God has blessed?
    You say you have a BA? Means nothing. If you were to really look into Ken Copeland’s life, you could see he NEVER GET’S ANY of the money that you say he does from the people who give to KCM…he makes his money from the books he writes, Which are probably now over 25, and he is blessed by his giving. The bible is true, every time…not when and where YOU say it is.

    I’VE BEEN A PARTNER WITH KCM FOR OVER 35 YEARS AND SHARED HIS ANOINTING. God said to go into all the world and preach the gospel
    He is doing it. And it ain’t cheap. The devil sold the “church” the lie that poverty is the way to go. The bible say’s Jesus became poor, so that we might become rich. When we criticize without offering a solution -what good is that??
    The problem with judgmental people is they accomplish nothing other than noise pollution. people say faith doesn’t work, when the real problem is that FAITH TRIED THEM AND THEY QUIT.
    You think God is poor??? Why does His family have top be poor???
    You say “His thoughts are higher than our thoughts”, True. You probably thing we could never get up to a higher place next to Him?
    WHAT IF GOD BECOMES OUR TEACHER??? Don’t be so carnal.
    Kenneth Copeland preaches The Word of God, NOT RELIGIOUS THINKING.
    Forgive me for being so critical, but i know Kenneth Copeland…
    He loves God and has spent a lot of time with Him and it shows!

    • I am sorry to tell you this, but you are wrong. His HUGE house is paid for by the MINISTRY, that means YOU bought it. His airport, his planes, ALL PAID for by the ministry. THE LIE is that Christians should be wealthy, the Bible does NOT say we should be poor, but it also DOES say we should NOT BE RICH. Jesus called money, “UNrighteous.”
