Lying for Jesus: Pat Robertson
Remember: if you take the step of faith, plant the seed (i.e., give money to God’s great man of faith and power), then God will heal you! God doesn’t want you to be poor or sick. He wants you to live in His glorious abundance and health now! All you have to do is take one small step of faith (i.e., give money to God’s great man of faith and power) and you can access all of God’s amazing gifts. Now! Every time!
Unless he doesn’t heal you: then it’s your fault.
One of the most sad and telling claims of so-called ‘faith healers’ from Benny Hinn to Todd Bentley is that the reason people are not healed at their healing conferences or through their television ministries is not because the faith healer wasn’t able to cure the ailment or sickness but because of the lack of faith of the person (and often the inadequate size of their financial gifts) who sought the healing. If only the person had genuine faith, so it goes, then the healing would’ve worked, so don’t blame the healer!
Today on the 700 Club, we saw an example of that when a viewer called in wondering why it is that when he prayed with Pat Robertson during his show for a healing of his knee pain the pain came back the next day. Robertson responded that people can “give up” his healings because “you don’t believe that it’s real” and never claimed the healing, “this is mine.” He also maintained that the return of the pain “may be Satanic and the things come back on you, they come back and you need to rebuke it and command it to leave you, permanently.”
“It’s like the healing was nothing more than a wonderful dream.”
Yes, something like that…
