A Kenneth Copeland Study Bible???

In all the excitement over the release of the ESV Study Bible, we might be tempted to overlook some of the other "Reference" Bibles which are available.

Yes, there really is a Kenneth Copeland "Reference Edition Bible." And of course, it is KJV--the language of Jesus and the apostles ( Click here: Kenneth Copeland Reference Bible: Books) (H.T. PLW).

My guess is that the Kenneth Copeland references highlight the following word-faith essentials:

  • That we are all little "gods"
  • That we can create personal wealth by simply claiming it--an important doctrine considering the possibility of a recession
  • That Jesus saved us, not on the cross, but in hell by taking back his authority from the devil
  • That God wants Kenneth Copeland to have several brand new executive Jet aircraft to fly out of his own personal airstrip in Texas-someone has to take the word-faith message to exclusive resorts and five-star hotels, places often overlooked by poorer word-faith evangelists
  • That God will prosper all those who "sow a seed" by sending their hard-earned money to Brother Copeland

You can even bid on the less-sanctified NKJV version on eBay. Click here: KENNETH COPELAND STUDY BIBLE/NKJV-Softcover/New - eBay (item 170269790942 end time Dec-05-08 18:15:36 PST)

I'm not going to buy one, I just named it and claimed it, I'll be checking my mailbox later today to see if it came.

The economy here in the Fort Worth area is booming! We have Copeland and Benny Hinn and a few other name brand word of faith folks in the area. They may be our #1 industry! LOL

If the Bible doesn't arrive, it means you have unconfessed sin in your life, or that you don't have enough faith.

Also, it could just be that someone else claimed your Bible before you did . . .

Mannnn, first, I missed heaven's rehearsal. Then I bought one of those unannointed ESV study Bibles, when I could have had the KCKJV study version! I'll try harder and put both hands on the TV next time.

Just when I didn't think it could get anymore sanctified than the Joyce Meyer study bible!! Praise the Lord.

Boy at $67 dollars a pop, this thing really must have notes to lead me to riches!

Just got back from the mailbox and I was not disappointed! The latest issue of Modern Reformation was waiting for me there.

The Word of Faith doctrine is a doctrine that DESTROYS faith in God and HIs Word. Was in it for 10 years. Taken me years to recover my faith and trust in a good God.

The study Bible might be a little boring, but A Kenneth Copeland Rolls Royce would really increase my faith.

For $67 I would like to have a better cover design. Mr. Copeland must have had an off day when he claimed his graphic artist.

See what happens when you "sow seed" into White Horse Media! You get a magazine! And a great magazine, I might add!

Isn't it an oxymoron to use the words Copeland, study and Bible all in the same sentence?

I live in the Wichita, Kansas. I hope Kenneth Copeland does order more jets. 1,000 layoff notices have gone out to airplane workers here.

Years ahead of you, Dr. Riddlebarger, since I've owned one since 1999. I was heavily into the Word of Faith movement back then and bought a very nice-looking Blue one.

Your assessment of its notes is right on - endorses all the usual Word of Faith heresies and lies, i.e. get rich, get healthy, you are a god, etc.

Glad to hear you got ouf of that horrendous movement, Mary Beth.

Silly Chris Sherman! Naming and claiming doesn't work without sending your seed money to a money-grubbing tycoon! Everybody knows that...sheesh.

When did name-it-and-claim-it dissolve into hint-it-and-print-it?
November 13, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChris Larimer
Yes, but I thought if I just laid my hands on the picture up there and prayed it would come.
