OVER ONE MILLION PAGE VIEWS…
and STILL COUNTING!
Our website has surpassed a major new milestone! We have now exceeded ONE MILLION (1,000,000+) page views! So the biblical redemptive project contained here on KennethCopelandBlog.com has indeed prospered tremendously over the years! (Yes, that pun was intended…the irony is amazing that the premier website exposing the “Godfather of Prosperity” is doing so well!)
We originally began this project in late 2008 with only three posts. Our intention was to simply provide a “shot across the bow” to the Copelands that we did NOT intend to let their fraud regarding Angel Flight 44 go unaddressed. We truly thought that if they knew we INTENDED to expose the issue, then they would repent and either start that ministry for which they received millions of dollars to build, or at least apologize publicly and clear the air. Of course, they didn’t do either. Our expectations did not account for the fact that they were genuine wolves in sheep’s clothing. So we then expanded this website tremendously in 2010 by enumerating all of the evidence that we had on that subject. Our efforts even caught the attention of Christian media! Nevertheless, the Copelands just went into “damage control” mode, and still refused to do what was right with respect to gathering so much money and never using it for the purposes promised.
However, in the process of all of this, we began to meet ex-employees of Kenneth Copeland “Ministries” (KCM) who told us their own first-hand accounts of the wolfish behavior that they had witnessed there over many years. Their stories throughout 2010 and into 2011 (and even today), convinced us back then that the Copelands were professional con artists and never intended to get right (although we still hold out hope that they one day will).
So we began expanding this website to cover their many family problems and divorces, with the primary (but unstated) purpose of revealing how utterly human the dysfunctional Copeland family is to those who worship the very ground upon which they walk (and some of them do, believe me). We accompanied that post with an explanation of the “Family Test” too, in order to demonstrate our stated purpose of highlighting some of the reasons why they are not biblically qualified for ministry. We later discussed the probable relationship with Freemasonry with the new information that started to come in to us, although that project is still unfinished. In addition, our website proved by the Bible, documented evidence, and sound logic that Kenneth Copeland is not truly saved, given his OBVIOUS covetous nature. We also began to cover the frauds of many of their “wolf friends,” as well as discussed other topics related to the Copeland “wolf pack” (the list of which you can see on our Table of Contents page). And etcetera.
Today, we now have 65 published posts and pages (including this one). Although we have not added much new content the last few years due to our time constraints with other projects, we are nonetheless thrilled that our current content has reached so many people! WOW! Over one million page views! That is a LOT of reading! 😯
So it was important to take a moment to let our still growing company of advocates would appreciate this convenient update about the success of this ongoing redemptive project.
A Quick Word to the Logically Impaired
Before speaking about the future of this project, I thought it would be a good idea to take a moment to address the “Copelandites” (as we call them) who seem to be unable to distinguish the difference between a STATIC post on this website and our ACTIVE attention. Let me please explain…
We have been falsely accused by people claiming that we are “obsessed” with the Copelands because they came to this website and found all of this content on here. They seemed to think that what we wrote IN TIMES PAST was a reflection of our active involvement NOW. In other words, as they read what we wrote, they seemed to be reacting to it as if we just wrote it — despite the fact that the content they were reading may have been 7 years old or more! In their minds, the constant “conversation” being made by our website from articles we wrote in the past, was somehow considered to be indicative where our attention was at that moment. Thus, they considered us “obsessed” because 64 (now 65) articles and pages were “speaking” to them now. Meanwhile, we were off somewhere else and occupied with other things that had our attention.
This is how irrational some Copeland followers can be. Some of them simply cannot fathom why an article we wrote, perhaps in 2010, was not actually us writing to them right NOW with our full attention on this subject. (Of course, that speaks volumes about WHY they follow the Copelands and their friends in the first place.)
So let me help out those folks with a dictionary definition and some mathematics. (If you have a math-phobia, please do NOT panic. I will only be using simple math here.) 😉
Here is an example of the most common types of definitions for the word “obsession”:
The domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc. (Source)
Most people reading this can quickly see that the STATIC (i.e., fixed, unchanging, stationary, passive) content on this website could ONLY confuse an irrational person. Because this website has so much content to browse, ONLY an unthinking person would falsely assume that what is “speaking” to them is Rich or Donna doing so RIGHT THEN, rather than having written that article at some time in the past. Nevertheless, some people have tripped up on this subject and I want to help them.
So let me now bring in the math by showing how few articles we have written over the last three years (2013-2015). Let’s assume that it takes Donna and me eight (8) hours of research and writing for every post, and then break that down in terms of how much of our time we have invested on this website lately. There are 24 hours in a day, and when multiplying that times 365 days in a year, that gives us a total Annual Time of 8,760 hours in a year. If we limit that time to only Annual Waking Hours (i.e., 16 hours a day times 365 days), there are 5,840 hours in a year. So taking our time invested, and dividing it by Annual Time and Annual Waking Hours, produces the following percentages of time that we spent working on this website (rounded to 3 decimal places):
|Year||# of Posts||Total Time||% of Annual Time||% of Annual Waking Hours|
This table above demonstrates a few interesting things. First, if you add up ALL of the time we invested over the last three years, it would STILL not reach more than one-half of one percent for any SINGLE year (i.e., less that 1% at 0.548%). That is not an average, but the TOTAL time spent annually on a percentage basis, during the hours of the day we are awake, added up into one sum as if it were in one year only. Of course, if you count for just Annual Time, our time investment into this website is even less.
Now, can ANY rational person consider such minuscule efforts the last three years to be “proof” that we are somehow “obsessed” with the Copelands and their wolfish friends? No, rational people cannot…but then again, who ever accused the Copelands’ followers of being fully rational?
And, no, I am NOT saying that ALL of the Copelands’ followers are THIS bad. Nevertheless, the fact that ANY are is a major problem. Why? Because the severe irrationality of some of their followers is a testimony (in and of itself) about how these wolves love to prey on gullible people. It is also indicative of how the Copelands’ (and their friends) tend to discourage logical thinking and intellectual inquiry. If any of their audience began to THINK for themselves (i.e., instead of just swallowing doctrine like cult members), then they would quickly stop following them (and giving them money, which, of course, would be a horrific event for these religious con artists). So the Copelands discourage independent thinking and research, and the result can sometimes be people so irrational that they cannot discern the difference between a static website and a live conversation online.
So with this little math exercise done (I hope nobody went into a panic attack when they saw the numbers), let me move from our little “aid” for those confused by the difference between STATIC content and ACTIVE involvement, and close out this announcement post.
Repentance is STILL the Goal:
Our plans for the future are simple: We will leave our STATIC content on here until such time that the Copelands repent. As we have time, and feel led of the Lord to do so, we may even add to the articles on here in order to more fully inform the public as we finish up some of the incomplete sections. If something new pops up, then we will likely address that too, if we have the time.
Regardless of how much time we invest in this redemptive project moving forward, our vision and focus for this website remains the same. We pray that the Copeland family and their wolfish friends (and followers) will get rational, repent and get saved VERY soon because God’s Word warns very clearly:
For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
(Ephesians 5:5, NKJV, emphasis mine)
For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Now
“If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?”
(1 Peter 4:17-18, NKJV)
The Bible says repeatedly that the Lord is “longsuffering.” It does NOT say that He is “forever-suffering.” According to God’s Word, there will come an end to the sin…and then eventually a FINAL judgment beyond that:
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 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 21:6-8, NKJV, emphasis mine)
Donna and I — and ALL our God-fearing advocates — are hoping that the Copelands and their “wolf pack” of unsaved friends (and all of their deceived followers!), will repent and receive the TRUE heavenly blessing from the first part of that verse above.
Thus, we will continue to confront the Copelands and their wolfish friends on this website with our CURRENT content, as well as any NEW material that we may add in the future. 🙂
Lastly, let me express on behalf of Donna and me our appreciation to all of our MANY supporters out there who have encouraged us in this project! It has been such a blessing to us to hear from people who truly appreciate this redemptive project. God bless you all in return! 😀
Always in Jesus,
-Rich & Donna Vermillion
