During today’s “Bring It On” segment on “The 700 Club,” a viewer with multiple sclerosis (MS) told host Pat Robertson that she feels “abandoned by God” because she frequently watches his show in hopes of being healed during his faith healing segments but so far has seen no results, leading her to ask “is healing not for everyone?”
Robertson replied that healing is in fact for everyone and that he has personally witnessed and been involved in miraculous healings of MS.
“I know this sounds strange but I do believe there is a spiritual component in MS, it’s like a demonic—it’s one of those things that you literally have to cast out,” he said. “I have seen people with MS get up out of a wheelchair and push the wheelchair out of the room where we were. I’ve seen it. I’ve been involved in it.”
While he did tell the viewer to “check with an endocrinologist to see if there’s something, some chemical or something that could be done that would build up that immune system that you’ve got or if it’s something that you’re eating that’s causing a problem,” Robertson assured her that “you need in the name of Jesus to rebuke that thing and to say to your body, ‘You will be whole!’”
