Robertson: Chronic Illnesses Probably 'Psychosomatic' and the Result of Negative Thinking

In response to a question from a 700 Club viewer who wonders if his unnamed chronic illness is part of “‘the plan’ God has for my life,” Pat Robertson explained that the viewer was really to blame because of his negativity

Based solely on the short question, Robertson told the viewer that “many of the problems that you have come about from your attitude, your own reaction to things, your own abilities, your own work.”

“Chronic illness can often come about from psychosomatic problems, I don’t want to make a broad statement,” Robertson continued, “It just sounds like that you’ve got a negative attitude.”

Robertson finished with a Word-Faith teaching about how the viewer can simply speak happiness and health, rather than negativity, into existence: “You literally can speak into the world around you and the results begin to change and if you speak negatively you will have negative, so don’t say it’s ‘God’s plan’ I think that’s a misnomer.”
