Kenneth Copeland is probably the most prominent Word of Faith "preacher" in the world today. He learned his Word of Faith doctrine directly from the "father" of the Word of Faith movement: Kenneth Hagin. Although he speaks with tremendous conviction and authority, what he says is 100% false. But Copeland's followers just don't care.
“For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.”
— 2 Thessalonians 2: 11-12
Word of Faith followers are truly delusional, so Copeland will remain filthy rich and extremely powerful no matter how wrong he might be. And he couldn't possibly be more wrong than he was here...
Here's Kenneth Copeland teaching some really bad theology and then failing completely at commanding Hurricane Irma (after he failed to stop Hurricane Harvey):
Here's a video from Kenneth Copeland Ministries own YouTube channel, featuring Copeland's daughter, Teri Copeland Pearsons, who explains exactly how to control the weather (which she utterly fails to do, just like her Dad):
Word of Faith doctrine is based on delusional ideas that come more from the "Mind Science" cults that developed in the 1800s than they do from the Bible. These false teachers quote the Bible, but they twist God's Word whenever they do.
Here's Kenneth Copeland's wife, Gloria, claiming that her husband controls the weather whenever he wants to:

Here's a (failed) prophecy from Kenneth Copeland that he made in 2016:

If Word of Faith "Weather Warriors" were a drinking fountain:
This blatantly false Word of Faith teaching is getting more and more common in the so-called "Bible-believing" church around the world, yet practically none of today's prominent megachurch pastors are saying a thing to refute it. In fact, it appears that this ridiculous Word of Faith teaching is becoming the new normal. At least Dr. Michael Brown had the sense to refute these "Weather Warriors," (after he was forced to comment about it), but it remains to be seen if he or any other big name Charismatic "experts" will take a public stand to correct false doctrine.
