Theology for Morons: Jesse Duplantis’ Blasphemous Absurdities



Theology for Morons:
Jesse Duplantis’ Blasphemous Absurdities



Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis

From left to right: Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis

People forward me information from time to time about the Copelands and their antics. Sometimes their information is useful, and sometimes it is not. Nevertheless, I generally appreciate the thought whenever someone takes the time to fill me in on what the Copelands are up to. (Believe it or not, I really do not monitor them very closely because I am very busy with other things; so my “whistle blowers” often come in very handy.)

Imagine my curiosity when I read the subject of the email that originated from Kenneth Copeland’s (alleged) “Ministry” (KCM) when I noticed that it said, “Clear up any distorted perceptions you may have of God’s Word!” I thought to myself, “Oh, this should be interesting.” So I took a look at the email, and saw the graphic that you see posted here on this page. I then read the announcement:

Join Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis this week and next on the Believer’s Voice of Victory broadcast and rediscover the fearless roots of your faith. See God’s Word as it really is: true, pure, raw, powerful! Don’t miss a day!

Let me see if I understand this correctly… Kenneth Copeland has asked Jesse Duplantis (of all people) to help him explain to people how they can have their “distorted perceptions” regarding “God’s Word” corrected? Not only that, but the same email also advertises a new book by Mr. Duplantis entitled, Distortion: The Vanity of Genetically Altered Christianity. (By “genetic” I presume that Mr. Duplantis is referring to the Book of Genesis, because he has been “teaching” some pretty stupid things from that text lately, as we shall soon see.)

So let me get this straight: One of the most absurd heretics that currently walks the face of the earth (Jesse Duplantis) has “teamed up” with Kenneth Copeland in order to help people get their “distorted perceptions” cleared up? “Oh,” I thought to myself, “this is too amazing to not post a quick article about tonight!” As busy as I am, I have to take a little time in order to explain to you why only a complete fool (or a complete moron) would listen to Mr. Duplantis and his alleged “teaching” at all. It is quite dangerous to allow THAT man to tinker with your “perceptions” about the Bible in any way.


Jesse Said What?

One of the dumbest things that I have ever heard come out of the mouth of another human being that was professing to be “teaching” from the Bible at the time, was when I heard Jesse Duplantis describe—seriously, and not jokingly—the God of the Bible as “not knowing” what “He had created.” Yes, that is right! In the next video, you can watch an excerpt of a “teaching” (if one can call such an instance of stupidity by that term) that not only did God NOT know what He had made, but that God even needed Adam to explain it to Him!

(Note: If the above YouTube video does not play for any reason, then CLICK HERE in order to see an alternate copy play within this same article window.]

Now upon what absurd reasoning does Jesse Duplantis make this ludicrous announcement? Simply because he has known “creative people” before, “who did not know what THEY created.” In short, he compares the omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient God of the Bible with fallible humans, and then thinks that is “proof” of his ridiculous idea that God did not know what He made.

Oh, and then there is that bizarre concept of “brought them” wherein Mr. Duplantis assumes that the animals were not yet alive but “carried” over to Adam so that he could make them alive for God. How stupid is that? You know, if I “brought” my family over to your house for a visit, you can be rest assured that they are alive already. They can even walk from the car to your door in their own power. And that I certainly have NO intention of you “breathing” into their nostrils for me! (Either Mr. Duplantis is an idiot, or he thinks that we are.)

I am quite sure that most readers will instantly see the utter absurdity of such statements made by the heretic, Jesse Duplantis, within the video above.

However, I am also quite aware that those who listen to the “Word of Faith” (WoF) teachers these days tend to be… well, how shall I say this? They tend to be “less than studious” with regard to analyzing and testing the poisoned doctrines that they constantly “feed upon” (to put it nicely). So let me spell it out for those who do not see anything wrong with Jesse Duplantis’ claim that God did not “know” what He had created.


Defining “Omniscient”

The God of the Bible is described as being “omniscient.” Let me define that word for you first, and then we will see a few Scripture passages where this is stated. The English word “omniscient” means simply, “having complete or unlimited knowledge, awareness, or understanding; perceiving all things.” ( It is derived from two Latin words: omnis which means, “all, every, whole” (Cassell’s Latin Dictionary) and scientia, which means, “knowledge, understanding, expert knowledge” (Oxford Latin Desk Dictionary). This second word is the Latin root word for the English term “science.” Thus, God has all, every, and the whole, of expert knowledge and understanding.

In short, the God of the Bible KNOWS EVERYTHING!

Here are a few passages from the Bible which states this fact rather plainly:

I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him.

(Ecclesiastes 3:14, NKJV)


O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue,

But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.

Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” even the night shall be light about me; Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.

(Psalm 139:1-18, NKJV)


Known to God from eternity are all His works.


(Acts 15:18, NKJV)

Moreover, one does not really have to look it up in the Bible in order to discover that God is omniscient. This particular attribute is quite self-evident from creation itself. Please note first what Romans says about this very fact:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

(Romans 1:18-23, NKJV)

Now please notice what the Institute for Creation Research ( observed about the logical implications that are involved whenever we are  looking upon creation and reflecting upon its Creator (emphasis mine):

Applying the principles of cause and effect, it is clear that scientific logic indicates that the Cause for the universe in which we live must trace back to an infinite First Cause of all things. Random motion or primeval particles cannot produce intelligent thought, nor can inert molecules generate spiritual worship.

  • The First Cause of limitless space must be infinite.
  • The First Cause of endless time must be eternal.
  • The First Cause of boundless energy must be omnipotent.
  • The First Cause of universal interrelationships must be omnipresent.
  • The First Cause of infinite complexity must be omniscient.
  • The First Cause of spiritual values must be spiritual.
  • The First Cause of human responsibility must be volitional.
  • The First Cause of human integrity must be truthful.
  • The First Cause of human love must be loving.
  • The First Cause of life must be living.

We would conclude from the law of cause-and-effect that the First Cause of all things must be an infinite, eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, spiritual, volitional, truthful, loving, living Being!


So whether one wants to understand God solely from the Scriptures, or whether one wants to comprehend His characteristics by observing His Creation (or both!), there is only one valid conclusion that a person can reach about the God of the Bible: That He is omniscient, or in other words, ALL KNOWING. (Or if your are an Atheist or agnostic, you would still need to conclude that, “If the God of the Bible actually exists, then He would have to be omniscient,” even if you did not believe in Him.)

What about Jesse Duplantis? Well, both the Scriptures AND logic escape him completely. He does not seem to comprehend in the least bit how utterly self-contradictory his absurd teaching really is.



Within the video clip above, we have Mr. Duplantis saying essentially that “God did not know what He created.” However, God is omniscient by definition! Thus, in one statement Mr. Duplantis has stated that the “omniscient God of the Bible” did not know something…and it is impossible for the same subject (God) to be both “all knowing” and “not knowing” at the very same time.

The most basic laws of logic—understood completely since at least the time of the Greek logician, Aristotle (384 BC to 322 BC)—are the “Four Laws of Thought” (which are tautologies in both the formal logic sense, as well as the informal sense of “self-evident truths”). These are as follows (in no specific order):

  • The Law of the Excluded Middles
  • The Law of Identities
  • The Law of Double Negation
  • The Law of Non-Contradiction

I will allow you to look up the first three on your own time in order to save me some writing. (That is, if you wish to understand what they are.)

Nevertheless, I will draw your attention to the last one, “The Law of Non-Contradiction.” That simply means that something cannot “be” something while at the same time “not be” that very same thing. Expressed symbolically, this would be that “A ≠ ˜A” (read, ‘A’ cannot equal ‘not A’). Why is this? Because if “A” equaled “not A” then it would be a contradiction. It cannot possibly exist. You cannot say that the very same car “is locked in the garage” and “not locked in the garage” at the same time, for it will have to be either one or the other (or neither) but it cannot be both.

So either the God of the Bible is NOT omniscient (as it seems that Jesse Duplantis thinks) or the God of the Bible is omniscient (as both logic and the Bible both attest must be so). BOTH cannot possibly be correct, however, because that would be a contradiction. The most fundamental laws of logic require that we avoid such contradictions within our thinking if we are to arrive at knowledge of the truth. However, within his “deep” and “revelatory” teaching, Jesse Duplantis has self-contradicted himself, and thus, he has self-refuted his own teaching.

In short, Jesse is not only a theological moron… he is also blatantly irrational.


Blasphemy to Boot!

Also, we can note that by claiming that the God of the Bible is NOT omniscient, Jesse Duplantis has blasphemed the God of the Bible. defines blasphemy simply as, “to speak impiously or irreverently of (God or sacred things).” That would surely apply here. How can Jesse Duplantis malign the character of God as he did without it being blasphemous under such a definition?

However, the Bible itself is even tougher with this subject than your average dictionary typically is. First, please note what God thinks about those who blaspheme Him and His Holy Name:

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

(Exodus 20:7, NKJV)

Now the son of an Israelite woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel; and this Israelite woman’s son and a man of Israel fought each other in the camp. And the Israelite woman’s son blasphemed the name of the Lord and cursed; and so they brought him to Moses. (His mother’s name was Shelomith the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.) Then they put him in custody, that the mind of the Lord might be shown to them.

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Take outside the camp him who has cursed; then let all who heard him lay their hands on his head, and let all the congregation stone him.

“Then you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Whoever curses his God shall bear his sin. And whoever blasphemes the name of the Lord shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall certainly stone him, the stranger as well as him who is born in the land. When he blasphemes the name of the Lord, he shall be put to death.

(Leviticus 24:10-16, NKJV)

Now, since Jesse claims to make statements in regard to the “Hebrew” within his moronic “teaching” above, let’s look at the Hebrew word translated as “blasphemed” in verse eleven of Leviticus chapter twenty-four. It is the word “נָקַב” (transliterated into Latin characters as “naqab,” and listed in Hebrew lexicons by Strong’s #5344). It means literally, “to hollow out, to excavate” (Gesenius’ Lexicon). By implication, it means to curse or blaspheme. Thus, please notice that whenever a person “hollows out” (empties, bores a hole in, etc.) their description of the character of God, He considers it “blasphemy” against Him and says that He will hold that person accountable for it. Indeed, the Lord surely will:

But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

(Revelation 21:8, NKJV)

Thus, please note that Mr. Duplantis said that the God of the Bible is NOT “all knowing” (or more accurately, he IMPLIED that about the God of the Bible…for who really knows what “god” Jesse really thinks that he is talking about). When the Bible and creation itself attest that God is omniscient, then to say otherwise is to blaspheme Him and to bring both His character and Name into reproach.

Consequently, if Jesse Duplantis really believes that tripe that he “teaches” to gullible people, then Jesse’s “god” cannot possibly be the God of the Bible at all. However, by implying that it is the same Divine Person (i.e., by reading from Genesis chapter two in the video), Jesse is a blasphemer as well as an outright heretic.


And There’s More!

I know that I am risking of sounding like an old Ginsu steak knife commercial, “But wait, there’s more!” However, not only did Jesse Duplantis blaspheme the Lord God of the Bible with his self-contradictory stupidity, but he also went on to say that Adam was the one who breathed life into the animals that God created as he named them.

Thus, while Jesse has “hollowed out” God’s character by stating that the God of the Bible was ignorant of what He created, Jesse Duplantis then took that another step and DEIFIED ADAM in place of the Lord God! Not only that, Mr. Duplantis says that YOU can be this god-like kind of person too, by being a “speaking spirit” like Adam allegedly was! What a deal!

(By the way, this is a MASONIC doctrine that begins to be engrained into the minds of the gullible initiates within the Scottish rite within the seventh degree of “Royal Arch Mason” as they begin to apply the “I AM” of God and Jesus Christ to themselves. However, that phrase “I AM” only applies to Jesus Christ because He IS GOD Who was manifest in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16). It can NEVER apply to ANY OTHER man, because to only Jesus Christ can Deity rightly be applied. I will address the Masonic issue again briefly below, and provide a link to another page where you can read and download more information on this subject. For now, however, it should suffice to say that Mr. Duplantis’ doctrine indicates that he is probably a Freemason.)

And upon what basis does Jesse Duplantis base THIS outrageous absurdity? Because he claims that the literal Hebrew statement translated as, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being” in Genesis 2:7 means that Adam became “a speaking spirit.” Of course, he does NOT cite any specific reference for this “amazing fact” that he claims. (Please note that whenever people come up with wild theories about what the “original Hebrew” means, but yet they do not cite where they obtained that information, then they are probably pulling that doctrine from heretical sources.)

Gesenius’ Lexicon points out that the two Hebrew words translated as “living” and “soul” (Strong’s #s 2416 and 5315, respectively) mean “living” and “soul or spirit.” There is nothing about “speaking” within either of those words, except perhaps the implication that when a person is “living” they typically say something once in a while. (In short, we all “speak” because we are alive, but the Hebrew words involved do NOT say any such thing explicitly at all.)

So where in the world did Jesse Duplantis get such a crazy “translation” about the “original Hebrew”? (By the way, the Copelands, Creflo Dollar, and most of these WoF “wolves” teach this same exact thing about Genesis 2:7. Thus, it is quite important that we identify its root, is it not?)

Well, according to The Alef-beit: Jewish Thought Revealed Through the Hebrew Letters by Yitsḥaḳ Ginzburg, Avraham Arieh Trugman, Moshe Yaakov Wisnefsky, this phrase comes from “Kabbalah” (or Cabala) teaching and NOT from ANY literal translation from the original Hebrew text. (Click on that book title in order to see that fact for yourself.)

And what is Kabbalah teaching? Well, let me allow an expert in world religions (who was a former yoga guru, but is now a born again Christian who preaches the Gospel) to explain that it is first:

What is the origin of evil?

According to the Bible, evil streams from three main sources: (1) The ‘Original Sin’ passed down from Adam to all his offspring, which results in a sin nature resident in our human flesh (Psalm 51:5, Romans 5:12, Ephesians 2:3); (2) Sinful choices that we, as human beings, make (John 5:14, James 1:13–14); (3) Demonic powers that are constantly tempting the inhabitants of this planet, seducing them to commit evil. Most biblical theologians believe evil spirits (demons, devils) were originally righteous angels until they joined Lucifer (Satan) in his rebellion against God in the beginning. (See Isaiah 14:12–19, Ezekiel 28:12–19, 1 Thessalonians 3:5, Revelation 12:1–9.) Events that result from their influence cannot be attributed to God, since they do not work in submission to his will. The Bible clearly states that God is so holy that he “cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone.” (James 1:13 NIV) Logic dictates that if God does not “tempt” human beings, he certainly did not “tempt” the angels to turn against him in the beginning. Neither did God purposefully create demonic powers with an evil nature. The true Creator would never influence demonic beings to do anything evil. Instead, their evil nature is a result of their original free-will choice to oppose the Creator and his laws….

Kabbala, the esoteric offshoot of Judaism, proposes something altogether different. In the Zohar (the “Book of Splendor”—one of the two main sources of Kabbalistic doctrine), it is “implied that the evil in the universe originated from the leftovers of worlds that were destroyed.”…


Moreover, Kabbalah is also rooted in Freemasonry, and is an essential part of that common false religion. (Yes, Freemasonry is a false religion.) You can learn about the evils of Freemasonry and its connections to Kabbalah within my article, Are the Copelands FREEMASONS?: Separating Fact from Fallacy, and by downloading the resources on that page. In particular, please pay special attention to “Proofs of a Conspiracy” by John Robison, which you can download on that same page too (and which is a scanned copy of U.S. President John Adam’s own personal copy). However, other than sending you to that page, I will not elaborate further on Freemasonry’s connection to Kabbalah (aka “Cabala”) beyond this brief note within this article.

Thus, Jesse Duplantis has taught an unbiblical and irrational doctrine, that is found within a false religion called “Kabbalah” (which I refer to as “Jewish witchcraft,” because most people involved in the occult study and practice it to some degree). Moreover, he has portrayed this utter heresy as if it were genuine Christian doctrine supported by the “original Hebrew,” when in fact it is not. In short, Jesse Duplantis is simply teaching “doctrines of demons” to gullible people:

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron…

(1 Timothy 4:1-3, NKJV)

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.

(2 Timothy 3:1-9, NKJV)


Even a Giraffe Can Refute Jesse Duplantis

alternate text

I could not close this article out without also addressing Jesse Duplantis’ weird comments about giraffes being put together from “left over parts” from the creation of other animals. Since Jesse thinks so little of that creature, perhaps my readers would do well to find out how wonderfully amazing that graceful creature really is.

The giraffe is amazingly designed. The unique design of its lungs, heart, capillaries, and birth process all play vital roles in the giraffe’s survival. The heart has to pump enough blood into the giraffe’s brain while the capillaries have to prevent the high blood pressure from affecting the animal when it bends over to get a drink. The lungs, which are eight times the size of a human’s, provide enough oxygen to the brain. The giraffe gives birth while standing up. Such a fall would mean certain death to the newborn except for the fact that the mother lowers its young to the ground slowly through use of the after-birth.


Oh, but that brief description above does not tell even half the story about this amazing creature. So to enjoy an excellent presentation on this subject (just a little more than 3 minutes long), click here to watch this amazing video. Therein, the giraffe itself—an example one of God’s highly sophisticated designs—will rebuke Jesse Duplantis for his absurd comments about this graceful creature.



So there you go! Kenneth Copeland has once again proven himself to be a heretic by inviting another heretic onto his “Believer’s Voice of Victory” program (BVOV) in order to help YOU (i.e., those of you who are gullible enough to swallow this poisoned doctrine) to clear up your “distorted perceptions” about the Bible! And how does Jesse Duplantis plan to help you do this? Using Kabbalah? Using self-contradiction? Using non-biblical absurdities, while calling them “original Hebrew” revelations?

Who knows? It will probably be a combination of all of these, with perhaps a few other “tricks” of theirs thrown in too. However, I will not bother “tuning in” to find out what heresies they will attempt to convince their audience to accept. Nor do I plan to pay money to buy Mr. Duplantis’ ludicrous and heretical book.

I would highly recommend that you do neither, also.

In short, Kenneth Copeland and his buddy, Jesse Duplantis, have once again proven the Scriptures to be correct:

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!…

But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

(2 Timothy 3:1-5, 13, NKJV, emphasis mine)

So as the tag line states at the top of every page now, we are STILL calling on Kenneth Copeland and his family, his alleged “ministry”—PLUS his many other self-serving “wolf” friends—to simply repent… and get SAVED. Nothing would delight Donna and me more, because Hell is the wrong place for them to figure out that they are NOT saved:

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are MANY who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are FEW who find it.

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. MANY will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”

(Matthew 7:13-23, NKJV, emphasis mine)

I have no question in my mind that Kenneth Copeland and most of his family and friends (including Jesse Duplantis) are currently unsaved. This is simply because they are the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” described above. They are “inwardly ravening wolves” despite their “Christian cloak” with which they cover themselves, and thus, their inner nature is that of an unsaved person. The very fact of their greed, such as that which I described in Is Kenneth Copeland SAVED?, proves that very point conclusively. Thus, they will surely be counted among those who are rather shocked to discover that they were never born again.

However, the most terrifying point of the passage above is that the “many” of verse thirteen is the very same “many” of verse twenty-two. Thus:

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it….Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”

And who teaches these people in verse twenty-two the “broad way” that led them to destruction? The very same “wolves” that were discussed in between those passages. Thus, Jesus’ other saying will prove to be TERRIFYING—and very true—regarding those who continue to follow heretic wolves like the Copelands and Jesse Duplantis:

And He spoke a parable to them: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch? A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher….

“For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

(Luke 6:38-40, 43-45, NKJV, emphasis mine)

Jesse Duplantis and the Copelands teach and spread heresy, and unless they repent and turn their lives over to the REAL Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible, they will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire and Brimstone (see Revelation chapter twenty). Moreover, those of you who keep listening to them and “following” these blind guides can expect the same, unless you repent also.


It is time to get real, folks. If you cannot stop drinking up the poisoned doctrines of these moronic heretics after having seen it so plainly within this article, then I truly fear for your souls.

Let me please suggest to everyone that you read my article Are You a Mature Christian? (Take the Tests and Find Out!) on in order to see how spiritually “mature” you really are. (I also suggest that you download the FREE audio resource that is discussed toward the end of that same article.)

Kenneth Copeland and his family have said for years that the are “called” by God to “teach the meat” of “God’s Word” to people. So have you been feeding on that alleged “meat” that they serve? Do you think you are a “mature” person because of that? Then read the article above and see how you really measure up on the “spiritual maturity” scale as it is found within God’s Word.

My closing prayer for all my readers (including those following the wolves) is this: May you know the REAL Christ and His REAL Gospel, and turn away from the wolves who wish to exploit you (2 Peter chapter two) while they lead you like blind “guides” toward eternal damnation. Amen.

Always in Jesus,

-Rich Vermillion

Rich & Donna Recommend:

The book, "The Midas Touch," by the late Kenneth E. Hagin is an excellent resource for sincere Christians everywhere. Within this book, the author confronts AND refutes the hyper-prosperity teaching of Kenneth Copeland, Joseph Prince, Creflo Dollar, Jesse Duplantis, Leroy Thompson, Joel Osteen, and many others. Hagin's approach to the topic is non-technical and balanced. Thus, this book will help Charismatics and Word of Faith adherents to "detox" their doctrine in this area. It can also provide a foundational teaching on the subject of biblical prosperity in a manner suitable for all Christians.

The Kindle (eBook) edition of "The Midas Touch" can be purchased from anywhere in the world. Amazon's free Kindle app is available for Windows and Mac computers and laptops, plus most portable devices like Android and iPhone smartphones and the various tablet devices.
