Onstage before thousands of believers weighed down by debt and economic insecurity, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and their all-star lineup of “prosperity gospel” preachers delighted the crowd with anecdotes about the luxurious lives they had attained by following the Word of God.
I have been watching these TV preachers for a long time, since I was a young boy. For what, the past decade or so there theme has been "prosperity theology" unfortunately in a material sense. Their obvious audience are those who are not prosperous and send them what they can ill afford. They travel a circuit of venues as big show biz productions because it is indeed a business.
