Nuggets from Occult Invasion—Oral Roberts and the City of Faith |

Dave Hunt

Pat Robertson claimed that God had chosen him to usher in the coming of His Son and thereby persuaded his supporters to send in money to finance that incredible project. Oral Roberts claimed that Jesus appeared to him and told him God had chosen him to find the cure for cancer. This “revelation” came during a “seven-hour-long conversation” between Jesus and himself with “a 900-foot-tall Jesus…who told him [Oral] to ask his hundreds of thousands of ‘prayer partners’ to send in $240 each to complete the [medical] center [a 60-story diagnostic clinic and 30-story hospital] so researchers there can find cures for cancer and ‘other dread diseases.’” Oral’s “prayer partners” funded the more than 200-million-dollar project.
