What Robertson is asserting here is that God apparently ordained all of humankind with the power to raise the dead. Our problem, Robertson says, is that the “power is there, we just aren’t using it.”

So, if people just believe in themselves and think happy thoughts, we can spend five more minutes with Great Aunt Ethel that passed in 1999? Many doctors would say that scientifically impossible, and they would most certainly be the right crowd to check with.

It’s heartbreaking to think that Robertson is able to con people out of their money with promises of miracles.
