Kanon the 4 yr old Preacher

I have nothing to say…

He’s only a pre-schooler, but Kanon Tipton has become a YouTube sensation with his pentecostal preaching.

Millions have viewed video clips of Tipton as a 21-month-old and now as a 4-year-old preaching from the pulpit of his father’s church in Grenada, Miss., in a manner much like many evangelists – everything from shouting and waving his arms to jumping and wiping his forehead with a handkerchief.

Kanon, along with another “pint-sized preacher,” is the subject of (a) Wednesday night special on the National Geographic Channel.  (CPost)

  1. Pj, disappointingly this states it cannot be watched in my Country (UK)?

    By your description though and without watching it, I can only imagine it to be somewhat ‘sickeningly cute’……am I right 😦

    • Wish i could figure out a way for you to watch it Syl…. 😦

      Cute? no i wouldn’t call it cute. LOL

      If i recall correctly i posted about this same child-preacher when he was like 2 yrs old, and said it reminded me of my youngest son and his friend from Church (both were about 9) getting caught trying to baptize his 5 yr old sister and her friend, in the backyard pool. They too were pretending to “preach” and mimic the actions of our pastor. Both boys got a good talking-to. We explained to them it was wrong to mimic anything to do with God because ALL things of God are holy.

      I feel the same way about this clip… it’s just mimicking.

  2. From where I sit I see it as a mockery, by a juvenile to be sure, but more importantly, a mockery being allowed by his parents.

    I cannot discern the difference between how Satan went about quoting Scriptures to Jesus as recorded in the Gospels and this young boy’s phraseology of revival, the Holy Spirit and victory in that locality in that State, as a the part of this Country.

    All are true, of themselves. Satan surely exists. Satan surely spoke to Christ from Scripture. Revival is a very real necessary part of one’s transformation and regeneration by the One True Holy Spirit. It is done where we are. And victory is a Gift of God, very real and tangible, especially when you consider what Peter wrote to his particular crowd, of which we benefit when we, too, are touched by Satan by permission, touched by the Calling of God as the Holy Spirit does His sanctifying work with us and when we finally are restored, confirmed, strengthened and establish in the Eternal Glory in Christ by God’s manifestation of Grace, Mercy and Peace to us because He holds His dominion over all things to bring it about in our life:

    1Pe 5:6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,
    1Pe 5:7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
    1Pe 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
    1Pe 5:9 Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.
    1Pe 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
    1Pe 5:11 To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

    And of it all, there isn’t any True humility at work, just a bunch of showmanship by the little boy mimicking what he has seen and heard from others for the enjoyment of those present. As Sylvia coined it, it i just sickening cute stuff.

  3. Seriously, can anyone say Marjoe Gortner? If this kid is mimicing the pastor I’m glad I don’t go to that church!!

  4. The Uploader won’t allow this video in my country , Australia, either, I, kinda think I;m not missing much (have seen it elsewhere) Shame on the parents and their total lack of guidance, wisdom and discernment. Reminds me of the child pageant here recently (mother and daughte camer from the USA) when people protested about the exploitation of children. dressed up like beauty queens. ” When I was a child I spoke like a child, thought like a child and reasoned like a child”. 1st Corinthians 13:11 He is just a baby who should be protected, nurtured and trained by his parents. Shame on the churches that promote him on their platforms

  5. The family are members of the anti-Trinitarian organization known as the United Pentecostal Church. His father Damon, is the District Youth Secretary of the Mississippi District for the UPCI. Beware this group attacks the Trinity, and the Eternal Sonship of Christ. I have met many who say “If your are baptized in the Trinity, you are not part of the bride of Christ. The Trinity is pagan according to the UPCI. A pretty well known UPC is Irvin Baxter who airs on Christian radio. His tape True Christianity vs False Christianity is full of attacks on the Holy Trinity. His tract is also full of anti-Trinitarian remarks.

  6. He is being set up for a fall….and in his innocence…he sees the adulation and approbation according to his performance as WHO God is as a rewarder. It is obvious that he cannot read..[ the pictures in his baby bible will do….]…yet his daddy would pant..and mop and in his indecision would spout out party slogans….”THE LORRRD IS AMONG US….!!”…so he does like daddy.

    His parents, and the audience are equally guilty …spiritually murdering a young one…or at best…stumbling one. What will he do when the party is over?…and his baby throne is taken away…and life comes at him with a vengence?…[ as it does to us all…]

    This also exposes the bankruptcy of modern Pentecostalism…and the focus on Experience, entertainment and dogma that Satan has baptized that movement in. Is there a Candlestick in that Church to be removed? I don’t see one.

  7. Marjoe all over again.

  8. It seems like we all are preaching to the Choir here…..everybody on the same page…with the same sentiments. It won’t matter though if millions rose up to decry this manipulative, carnal act against this child…and God.

    We will be seen as Satan; ignorant heathens; deceived enemies. This is the fruit of dogma…and isolationism….a “party” spirit; a separated spirit from the Body and doctrinal orthodoxy.
