Pulpit & Pen was trying to document all the crazy things said by charismatic prophets about coronavirus so we could come back later and mock them for it (like Elijah mocked the prophets of Ba’al). But it turns out that charismatics say a lot of stupid things, and we weren’t able to keep up.
For the record, Bethel’s affiliated pastor, Shawn Bolz, declared a prophecy that God had ended the virus. Perhaps Bethel didn’t get the memo. Rodney Howard Browne promised to bind coronavirus from the United States (again, it’s growing), Jim Bakker claimed his venereal disease ointment also heals coronavirus, and Rick Wiles claimed Christians are immune altogether. Pat Robertson claimed his gut-health booklet will make you immune. A charismatic prophet from New Zealand claimed that all Christians were immune. Another prophet declared that Republican states were immune. Kenneth Copeland said that touching his oily hand through the television would heal coronavirus.
But it gets worse and worse every…single…day.
Now, TBN aficionado, Perry Stone, says that coronavirus is a scheme of Satan designed to wipe out the elderly in order to make socialism more tenable.
We kid you not.
What was Satan’s purpose in starting Coronavirus in Red China? They seemed to have been carrying along fine with their commie ways before the virus.
We’re starting to believe that Rodney Howard-Browne’s spiritual wine is actually making these people drunk after all.
