Kenneth Copeland Accused of Humanitarian Aid Fraud

January 20, 2010

While millions of viewers around the world are watching the ongoing international humanitarian efforts for Haiti’s earthquake-stricken population, televangelist Kenneth Copeland is being accused of failing to provide his own promised aviation assistance during this crisis.

Rev. Rich Vermillion was formerly associated with Copeland as the writer of the book, Angel Flight 44: The True Story of Two Dedicated Pilots, a 60-Year-Old Airplane, and the Amazing Hurricane Katrina Mission That Birthed a New Aviation Ministry. The book details the 2005 relief efforts made by Kenneth Copeland Ministries (KCM) in the aftermaths of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and Copeland’s promises to form a new ongoing aviation humanitarian-relief ministry also called Angel Flight 44 (AF44). However, Rev. Vermillion now says that the aviation ministry was never formed as Copeland pledged: “It is as if Kenneth Copeland had NEVER said such a ministry had ALREADY been formed, nor had repeatedly promised that such an aviation support ministry would be further developed and ready for disasters–such as that which just occurred in Haiti a few days ago.”

Kenneth Copeland Ministries is one of six televangelist ministries being investigated by the Senate Finance Committee for possible tax law fraud, and has not cooperated with the investigation. KCM is not certified by any independent financial group, such as the Evangelical Counsel for Financial Accountability; Wall Watchers’ has given them a financial transparency grade of “F.”

The failed promises of Word of Faith and Prosperity teachers never seem to run out and it leaves me wondering, do these guys do this stuff on purpose? Failed promises, heretical teaching, and no accountability is what defines these movements, its teachers, and its adherents. It’s rotten to the core and that’s the unfortunate truth. Unfortunate because they call themselves christians. I have said this before on this blog and I wil say it again, deception cannot be deception unless it has elements of truth; Kenneth Copeland uses scripture to deceive the masses for unjust gain as the other teachers of these movements do as well. God help them and those that follow their teaching. Here is the link to the article:
