Chapter 16: My God Heals Sick People
I've long been fascinated by faith healers and televangelists, but more so for their power to manipulate and control the minds and emotions of the naive audience, than for any true healing powers. Benny Hinn is a real scum bag, to put it mildly. I've studied him for years and years and cannot believe people actually give this fruitloop their hard earned money. It doesn't speak well for the followers.
Page 127 Harrison says something that got my attention:
To me just this simple statement above should be enough to make the average Christian have a Eureka moment. Such sound reasoning Harrison uses to dissect just about ever conceivable argument for faith....yet a believer will persist in their belief as if these silly facts and refutations of arguments aren't going to be allowed to get in the way of their pure an honest faith. I want to bang my head against the wall. And then do it again.
How can a believer reconcile the fact that religious leaders have been successfully healing "certain" people for thousands and thousands of years? I put "certain" in quote marks because only believers are healed by these Charlatans. Clear thinkers would walk in and out of the healers tent in the same unhealed/unchanged condition (and with the same amount of money in their pockets too).
