Controversial televangelist Kenneth Copeland has come under fire for attempting to heal people of coronavirus through the television screen.
Copeland was broadcasting a program on his “Victory” channel titled “Standing Against Coronavirus,” when he issued a lengthy prayer for any of his viewers who might be suffering with the illness.
“Put your hand on that television set,” the preacher said as he reached out to the screen, his hands coated with oil. “Hallelujah. Thank you, Lord Jesus. He received your healing. Now say it: ‘I take it. I have it. It’s mine. I thank you and praise you for it …’”
He went on: “According to the Word of God, I am healed. And I consider not my own body. I consider not symptoms in my own body, but only that which God has promised.”

The long-time “health and wealth” preacher has courted controversy for peddling a theology that suggests God will heal all those who can muster up enough faith to believe for it. During his prayer, he doubled-down on this belief system, declaring: “I am not the sick trying to get healed. I am the healed, and the Devil is trying to give me the flu!”
It’s not the first time Kenneth has spoken oddly about devils, demons and outlandish spiritual warfare. Known for his decadent lifestyle, the preacher once said that he refuses to fly commercial because the planes are like “long tubes with a bunch of demons.”
