PAT ROBERTSON

"God spoke through a word of prophecy in May 1968, and said, ‘I have chosen you to usher in the coming of My Son.’"
(Sermon on Satellite Network Seminar, Word of Faith Outreach Center, Dallas, TX, Dec. 9-12, 1984, as cited in "The Freedom Writer," 1986)

Commenting on the (The Evangelicals and Catholics Together Document or ECT) debate, Pat Robertson said that the dispute over "minor points of doctrinal differences" shouldn't obscure the document's goals. Robertson's political action organization, Christian Coalition, defends his endorsement of ECT because its objective is to fulfill the Church's "responsibility for the right ordering of civil society."
(Tom Barbaho, The United Religions Organizaton citing "Catholics and Protestants: Can We Walk Together?," Joe Maxwell, Charisma Magazine, July, 1995, p. 22. and a letter from William H. Miles, Manager, Membership Services, Christian Coalition, March 6, 1996)

(Gerry) Straub relates a nonmiracle he witnessed while still a believer in the ministry he worked for. He describes Robertson, at the close of a "700 Club" videotaping, shaking hands with members of the studio audience: "He stopped when he reached a man sitting in a wheelchair ... Pat ... laid hands on him as everyone prayed for healing ... at Pat's urging the man stood up. The people cheered as the man took a couple of very shaky, small steps. While everyone applauded God, I feared the man might fall. The next day we showed the nation the miracle (on the "700 Club" broadcast). I simply wanted to know if the old man in the wheelchair was permanently healed by God or if he temporarily thought that he was healed. A few weeks later I had an assistant track down the man's family in order to see if the cure had lasted. He had died 10 days after his visit to [the Christian Broadcasting Netwark]. We reported his "healing" but not his death.
(James Randi, The Faith Healers, 1989, p.201)

"During my two and a half years at [Christian Broadcasting Network], I never saw one clear-cut, "beyond a shadow of a doubt" type of healing; however, I did see a tremendous amount of faith in healing -- cleverly created, I believe, by Pat Robertson ... The prophet-turned-healer could have been described as prophet-turned-fake for the sake of profit."
(James Randi, The Faith Healers, 1989, p.202)

"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don't have to be nice to them."
Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, January 14, 1991

What does Pat Robertson have to say about the Antichrist Pope?

"very warm"

"a humble and caring servant of the Lord"

"I believe the time has come where he must lay aside minor differences and focus on the common ground of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ."

"We all admire the Holy Father tremendously. We all want to build bridges with the Catholic Church."

"Pope John Paul II stands like a rock against all opposition in his clear enunciation of the foundational principles of the Christian faith."


What does Pat Robertson have to say about the bible?

"Anything coming through man is contaminated to some extent. Therefore, since the Bible came through man, there must be errors in it. So, we must never equate the Bible with the perfect Jesus."

2 Peter 2:1-3
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not


God doesn't send anyone to hell. Anyone who goes to hell will be there because of decisions they have made. In essence, you send yourself there. (Pat Robertson from p. 304 of one of his heretical books)

This is a deception, people choose to do evil (Isaiah 66:3),
and they love death (Proverbs 8:36)
and seek death (Proverbs 21:6);
"he who pursues evil pursues it to his own death" (Proverbs 11:19);
and they bring this trouble upon themselves (Jeremiah 2:17).

But, God still is the One Who sends people to hell, as Jesus said,
Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire.
(Matthew 25:41;

also see Matthew 10:28
Luke 12:4-5
Isaiah 24:50-51 + 50:11
Revelation 20:11-15

A person asks Robertson:

IS JESUS THE ONLY WAY?

Question: I am very uncomfortable with the idea that Jesus is the only way to heaven. What about all those devout Jewish or Islamic people? Will God condemn them to hell because they call Him by a different name?

Pat Robertson's answer
God will not condemn anybody to hell because he or she uses a different name for Him.


This is a most atrocious and blasphemous remark considering Pat Robertson's statement is in the context of two Christ hating false religions!

This is what the Apostle Peter said when preaching to the Jews:
Let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the "stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone." Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Acts 4:10-12


Pat Robertsons's false damning works gospel

Robertson writes,
You must take definite action; you must admit that you are a sinner and ask God to forgive you of your sins; you must believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the grave, and you must ask Jesus to take control of your life. It's a big decision . . . with eternity hanging in the balance. But it is your choice, not God's.


Robertson blatantly lies when he says the choice is ours and not God's

The bible says:
For many are called, but few are chosen.

Matthew 22:14

Jesus said to his disciples:
Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you.

John 15:16

Salvation is 100% from start to finish a gift from God


Salvation is of the LORD
Jonah 2:9

And even the ability to repent and turn to Christ is a gift from God:
For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9


The ability to believe and repent is a gift from God given excusively to his elect children

Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 1:13

So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
Romans 9:16

To preach opposite of this is to teach a damning gospel of works

In his rejection of the word of God, Robertson believes in evolution.
The current theory which I accept points to a big bang theory as the beginning of creation, when about 15 billion years ago an extraordinarily dense mass exploded, and out of that came an expanding universe. Part of the reason scientists believe this theory stems from the movement of the planets. Study of the cosmos indicates that the planets are still moving away from each other. Imagine that we took a big balloon that had not been expanded, put little dots all around it, and then began to blow up the balloon.


As we blew up the balloon, the dots would get farther and farther apart. That is similar to what astronomers observe has been happening to our universe during these 15 billion years.
The big bang theory is not at odds with the belief in a creator or what is called intelligent design. The Bible neither supports or negates such a theory, since the Bible was not written as a science book.
page 135


Robertson's view is called theistic evolution and it is a blatant decieving lie.


Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were NOT made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:3

The bible clearly says:

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day.
Exodus 20:11

While decribing an incident in his book - Robertson blasphemously wirtes:
The woman told me that her husband had just died. I probed a bit into their relationship, and she told me that he had been an abusive, drunken man, and she harbored deep resentment toward him, even now that she was widowed.I asked her to pray after me, "God, I thank you . . .""God, I thank you . . ." she repeated."For giving me a drunk for a husband," I said.The woman gulped hard, and slowly said, "For giving me a drunk for a husband.""Who abused me during our marriage . . ."The woman tearfully repeated my words."Because that brought me closer to You."She echoed my words.I continued with the woman repeating each phrase of my prayer, "And God, I forgive him, and I forgive You. And I praise You for everything that has happened in my life." page 215

this is blasphemy to the extreme, God needs no forgiveness, he is holy in all his ways. God is sinless and perfect - he alone is holy.

Because i will publish the name of the LORD: Ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are judgment, a God of truth and without iniquity; just and right is He.
Deuteronomy 32:3-4

The LORD is righteous in all His ways, AND HOLY IN ALL HIS WORKS
Psalm 145:17

It is an extreme blasphemy to lead a deceived woman into a prayer charging God with need of forgiveness.

Chris - Jesus' Boy!
