True story... [#2804]
« on: May 06, 2014, 05:55:54 AM »
My father was a fundamentalist Assembly of God preacher. Oral Roberts pitched his tent right next to my dad's church in Miami back in the late forties when Roberts was still a traveling evangelist.

In Oral Roberts newsletter, he said that he had healed a guy in California whose arm had been cut off and it was slowly growing back... the elbow was beginning to form. So when we took our summer vacation to California, dad spent a week trying to track the guy down to see for himself. Somehow he was not able to find the guy. That must have been the beginning of my own atheism...

Thanks for your website!

That's one of the beauties of the internet. It's so much easier to sift through the lies.

For some reason, all I took from that was " Oral Roberts pitched his tent right next to my dad's." I should be ashamed.
Belief is irrelevant; the truth is not a democracy.
