Pat Robertson Has to Explain to Viewer Why He Has Surgery When He’s Supposed to Have Faith


pat-robertson-prophetI love it when Christians challenge each other.

On The 700 Club yesterday, Pat Robertson was asked by a viewer why he visits doctors if his faith is supposed to pull him through.

And then the rationalizing began.

… I think that godly people are used by God to come forth with the healing techniques that alleviate sickness and suffering and so forth… the Lord might say, “You prayed, and go to see that doctor and he’ll take the mole off your chin” or something.

I don’t know what else to say. If you have enough faith… maybe I don’t have enough, but I have faith for other people. But for myself, I think I did the right thing.

In short, God’s not really going to help you. God’s just going to point you in the direction of people who can help you. But God’s still the one who deserves all the credit. It makes sense, dammit! NEXT QUESTION!

If only there was a way to ask follow ups… What if the doctor’s an atheist? If the godly doctor’s taking care of you, do you still pray in the operating room? How does Ben Carson work?

  1. Ein gar nicht neues Problem, die Religioten quatschen nur gequirlte Scheiße solange es nicht sie selber betrifft. Kommt es aber zu dem „worse case“ dnan ist plötzlich alles ganz anders gemeint, man hat ihn nicht richtig verstanden oder endlos laber, laber laber, laber, laber

    Der Texanische Priester Kenneth Copeland predigt viele Jahre gegen die Maser Impfung als Gottesfrevel. Als seine ungeimpften Kinder daran erkranken, gehört Impfen jetzt zu Gottes großem Plan.
    Hallelujah, der Lattenjupp hat gesiegt – oder etwa doch nicht ?
