My whole life I watched the old sinner bilk his sheep for millions to finance his own deification and the construction of his empire. Roberts once saw a 900-foot-tall Jesus who assured him that his City of Faith hospital would be built, if only Roberts would squeeze his acolytes for more bucks. The hospital was built, and went bankrupt. It’s now an office complex.
In 1987 he raised the stakes of his importuning, saying that unless his viewers donated eight million dollars, God would “call him home”. Last night I watched a clip of him begging those viewers, ” Please extend my life!” The clip also showed him claiming that God, through Roberts’s ministry, had brought several dead people back to life.
He was a man of Mammon, not of God.
Here he is “curing” polio. I couldn’t find any record of him curing amputees.
