Kenneth Copeland is a multi-millionaire — a self-proclaimed billionaire, in fact — with a personal private jet and a mansion fit for a king. Copeland has gained his wealth by fleecing unsuspecting people in the name of Jesus in exchange for a false gospel — the prosperity gospel.
Copeland’s great-grandson reportedly died in a swimming pool accident earlier this week. We hope and pray that God will use this tragic incident to bring Copeland to repentance and true faith.

STAR-TELEGRAM (Fort Worth, TX) — The great-grandson of televangelist Kenneth Copeland died Tuesday at a Fort Worth children’s hospital after being pulled out of a swimming pool at a Tarrant County home, according to officials and his father.
Clark David Mayer, 2, was pronounced dead at 11:05 a.m. Tuesday at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office website on Wednesday.
His cause of death was drowning and it was ruled an accident, according to the medical examiner’s office.
“We’re going through a lot right now,” said Caleb Mayer, Clark’s father, in a brief interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Wednesday. “Please keep us in your prayers.”
