Due to some heated remarks by multi-millionaire televangelist Kenneth Copeland, a video of the conservative pastor and televangelist became viral online.
Copeland has long claimed that in order to fulfill their divinely mandated task of sharing the Gospel with the entire world, preachers of his caliber require their own jets. The preacher allegedly stated in this video that he preferred not to take a commercial flight because he did not “want to get into a tube with a bunch of demons.”
Copeland responded strongly when asked about the reported “demon” remark and whether he thinks people are demons: “No I do not and don’t you ever say I did.”
