Did Kenneth Copeland steal Brigham's fire?

In 1989, Kenneth Copeland, televangelist and Pentecostal preacher, made some statements that seem to have stolen some of the fire from Brigham Young. Especially since they are statements that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today is hesitant to own up to.

Hear his statement in an MP3

Here is the first part of the quote:

"God's reason for creating Adam was his desire to reproduce himself. I mean a reproduction of himself, and in the garden of Eden he did that. He was not a little like God, he was not almost like God, he was not subordinate to God even."

Another interesting quote from Copeland, cited from his Wikipedia article:

"This is all a copy, it's a copy of home. It's a copy of the mother planet, where God lives he made a little one just like his and put us on it. And Adam is as much like God as you could get, just the same as Jesus when he came into the earth he said that if you have seen me you have seen the Father. He wasn't a lot like God, he is God manifested in the flesh. And I want you to know something, Adam was God manifested in the flesh, he was God's very image, very likeness everything he did, everything he said, every move he made was the very image of allmighty God"

Well, hmm... I guess one man's trash is another man's treasure.
