Kenneth Copeland, wealthiest US pastor, lives on $7M tax-free estate

Considered the wealthiest pastor in America — with an alleged estimated net worth of $760 million — televangelist Kenneth Copeland is in hot water after an extensive investigation by the Houston Chronicle revealed how he has been living in a tax-free mega-mansion worth $7 million and paid for by Texas taxpayers for years.
The 85-year-old pastor’s house spans 18,000 square feet and is made up of six bedrooms and six bathrooms, located on an exclusive lake community outside Fort Worth.

The luxury pad, Copeland’s primary residence, is situated on one acre and surrounded by a 24-acre lakefront tract, which is valued “extraordinarily low” at $125,000, according to the Chronicle. Because of its low value, Copeland’s Eagle Mountain International Church — which Copeland founded in 1967 and which technically owns the home — pays less than $3,000 a year in property taxes, records show. The value was agreed upon by the Tarrant Appraisal District in Fort Worth as part of a dispute resolution agreement with the church.

But real estate experts said that the waterfront property in an open market would actually sell for millions.

Because Copeland claimed the mansion as a “clergy residence,” the home qualified for a 100% tax break. Without the break, Copeland would otherwise have an annual property tax exceeding $150,000.

The founder of the self-titled Christian organization Kenneth Copeland Ministries, the thrice-married pastor previously stated that when people drive by his house, “they will know there is a God,” according to a speech he gave at his 2015 Southwest Believers’ Convention in Fort Worth.

At the event, Copeland explained that his journey to living in the mansion all started when God told him years earlier to build a dream home that his wife, Gloria, had described to him. “Minister this house to her,” he recalled being told. “It is part of your prosperity.”
Her vision included a three-story estate with long white columns in front. “You may think that house is too big,” the prosperity preacher stated at the 2015 convention. “You may think it’s too grand. I don’t care what you think. I heard from heaven. Glory to God, hallelujah!'”

Sound like US Christians need to take a lesson from my county's history and go Hussite on such pastors.

Holy smokes, no. Forgiveness is not freely offered. The Lord's Prayer specifically requests that it be contingent on forgiving others.

It was an eminently practical prayer, and firmly rooted in the culture of the era and region. give us our daily bread, forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, protect us from evil. In some languages the translation hasn't been butchered for the sake of er... protecting creditors?

At least the needle hole thing wasn't changed. Jesus the historical figure comes out in the gospels, the extant supposed testimony, clearly as a leader of a reaction against hellenic and roman customs in the region. Not to overthrow but to enact the laws of the prophets and all that...
