Once again, trying to paint Copeland as a victim does not fly. The reporter was doing her job. Her questions were all professional and topical. He thanks God for faithful preachers like the reporter's grandfathers? What did you expect him to say? Let's get something straight here. I do not feel any jealousy towards Kenneth Copeland. I feel nothing but abject pity for he will answer for the blood of all 122 million people he has led astray. I am not jealous of successful ministries. I am angry at false ministries perverting the Gospel of Jesus Christ for their own shameful gain.

"I've even come to expect this kind of criticism from the secular media, but it's disheartening when it comes from other Christians. It's also discouraging to see how few believers came to his defense after the interview came out. I believe Christians should speak up and defend Brother Copeland, because if they don't, the secular world will continue to misconstrue and even demonize his words. So I encourage you to share this article and my podcast on your social media. Tell people that you don't think Inside Edition should have treated Copeland that way. Speak up in defense of the many other Christian leaders the secular media berates and accuses. Be the one who is willing to say that biased ambush journalism is wrong." -- Stephen Strang

You mean the way you are ambushing this poor Inside Edition reporter? Maligning her motives, intent, and questioning without even inviting her to respond or defend herself? That sure sounds a lot more like an ambush than her interview of Copeland. It is reassuring that some Christians saw this for what it was and called out the wolf in public. I do not need to misconstrue or demonize the words of Kenneth Copeland -- I just have to read them. I applaud Inside Edition for confronting what the church refuses to -- wolves in the pulpit making obscene amounts of money from selling a false gospel. I do not blame Stephen Strang because he is just as much a wolf as Kenneth Copeland. It is those that insist on defending the indefensible that worry me more. The key verse is from the qualifications to be a pastor and it says he must not be a lover of money. So let us summarize:

* Claims to be a billionaire

* Owns not one, not two, but three luxury private jets

* Used those private jets to travel 143 times to his ski resort in Colorado, since 2000

* Lives in a 6-million-dollar mansion

* Writes the mansion off as a parsonage to avoid taxes

Yet God's word says he must not be a lover of money.
