In a recent broadcast on his Victory Live TV show, televangelist Kenneth Copeland warned his followers to keep donating to the church, even if they lose their jobs as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
In a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch, Copeland lamented the “fear” and uncertainty the outbreak is instilling in his followers.
“Hey, your job is not your source,’ Copeland said. “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,” he said, adding that even if churches close down, people should “email it in there, text give or something.”
“You get your tithe in that church if you have to go take it down there and stick in under the door or something,” he continued. “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.”
