American Televangelist, Kenneth Copeland has ignited a new wave of controversy and backlash after urging Christians not to stop paying their tithes even if they lose their jobs because of Coronavirus.
The multimillionaire televangelist appearing on his Victory Live TV show told viewers that their source of income is not their job, but Jesus.
Fear of this coronavirus is faith in its ability to hurt you or kill you. The fear of “What are we gonna do? I’m getting laid off at work!”
Hey! Your job’s not your source. If it is, you’re in trouble. Jesus is your source! Whatever you do right now, don’t you stop tithing! Don’t you stop sowing offerings.
Well, they won’t let us go to church! Well, email it in, then! Text together. Something. But you get your tithe in that church if you have to go take it down there and drop it off… stick it under the door or something.
You get that tithe in that church, you get that offering in that church, and then you go home and do what you’re supposed to do.

Earlier this month, the televangelist claimed that he could cure viewers of the coronavirus if they touched his oily hand through their television set during his televised ministry.
This had also led to series of criticisms from social media users.
