Today on “The 700 Club,” a 76-year-old viewer asked host Pat Robertson if he should yield to his family’s pleas to see a doctor even though he already asked God “to be my physician.”
Robertson defended the viewer’s refusal to take a trip to the doctor’s office: “There’s some people who think that doctors are god and they really aren’t. You’ve asked God to be your physician so stick with it and say ‘Lord, I’m asking you for it.’”
The televangelist and faith-healer qualified that while people should still take medicine, a doctor’s visit isn’t necessary.
“You’ve made a commitment to the Lord, stick with it, don’t let your family influence you, do what you feel like doing,” he said. “Live your life, God bless you.”
