Gloria Copeland, co-founder of the Fort Worth, Texas-based Kenneth Copeland Ministries, has come under fire for urging her followers to avoid the lab-made flu shots because Jesus already gave them one that protects them from sickness. "He redeemed us from the curse of flu", Copeland said in the video posted January 31 on the ministry's Facebook page. But could it be that he gave us the flu shot because he knew there was a flu season?
Almost 2,900 people have died in Texas from either influenza or pneumonia since the season started on October 1, according to a February 2 report from the state Health and Human Services Department.
'He redeemed us from the curse of flu and receive it and we take it and we are healed by his stripes.
"We've already had our shot: He bore our sicknesses and carried our diseases".
Many others also condemned Copeland's advice on social media while others asked questions about how to activate the holy protection from the flu.
"If you say, 'Well, I don't have any symptoms of the flu, ' well, great, that's the way it's supposed to be", she says in the video. "Inoculate yourself with the word of God".
Shortly after she tells viewers to, "inoculate yourself with the word of God".
Gloria Copeland, her husband and their daughter have expressed skepticism or antagonism toward vaccines and medicine in the past.
"We know what's wrong with you. I'll never have the flu".
During the speech, she claims "we don't have a flu season" and said don't be threatened when somebody claims "everybody's getting the flu". "Now, which do you want to do?"
Commentators showed mixed reactions, but several said she was inaccurately representing Christian teachings. "Do you want to do that, or do you want to sit in here on a Saturday morning, hear the word of God, and let faith come into your heart and be healed?"
"Flu, I bind you off of the people in the name of Jesus", she says.
At least 126,117 cases of the flu have been confirmed this flu season, with experts predicting that by the end of the season the number of cases may match the 710,000 hospitalizations from the flu.
The video received more than 8,000 reactions and almost 4,000 shares on Facebook as of Wednesday morning.
