Who Said That?

"I've had to stop a sermon, go back and raise a dead person," adding good-naturedly, "It did improve my altar call that night."

Who said that? Leave your guess in the comments section below.  Please, no google searches or cheating.  Answer to follow next week.

Horton or MacArthur.

Oral Roberts is my answer and I'm sticking to it.
December 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRichard
Taking into consideration that Oral Roberts passed into eternity last week and the fact that the comment fits his "theology" to a tee, Roberts will be my guess. (Didn't Roberts die from some "disease"? Was it complications due to pneumonia? I'm not sure but whatever the cause of his demise it seems that he didn't have enough faith to claim his own healing. "Physician, heal thyself" comes to mind.")

Didn't Paul have to deal with these types too? Out-of-touch-with-reality, braggadocios, self-promoting Super-Apostles? If this actually did happen today, they'd have more visitors than Lourdes!

I'm sticking with Benny Hinn.

The late Oral Roberts. Didn't he once claim to have raised the dead?

The health and wealth guys all seem to die just like everybody else. I think specifically of Tammy Fay Bakker Messner, namein' and claimin' days before her death.

Though, Roberts could be the source...I think it might be our friend Benny Hinn.

What a self-absorbed idiotic statement.

Well you did say the person was preaching so that takes Benny Hinn away, so lets go with Oral Roberts who just passed away a few days ago. Raising someone from the dead? I thought the apostles may have done this once or twice but since then I have never heard of a real case from a pastor raising someone from the dead. Maybe the person was in a deead sleep to make the word faith guys look more believable.

Sounds like a Jay Leno monologue piece, perhaps on Oral Roberts' passing?

You just can't make this stuff up.

Its Benny Hinn doing an impression of Oral Roberts!

Though OR seems likely, I'm going with T.D. Jakes, just to be non-conformist. Bah, humbug.

Sounds like Paul (Acts 20) the guy's name was Eutychus
