On A Lighter Note
By Rev. Robert Liichow
History is a funny thing. Both hero’s and zero’s can become people immortalized due to their memorabilia. Several years ago DMI created a series of “Heresy Hunter” cards. These were a series of individually handmade laminated cards made to regulation trading card size. The series included: The Fake Healers; The Televangelists; The Cult Leaders; The False Prophets, etc…Some blessed readers may possess the one day coveted Televangelist card for Oral Roberts (or even a double portion blessing & also have his Fake Healer card too!) Below is only a facsimile, the original is in full color.
Most of the perversions fall under the terms of “seed faith” or “hundred fold return” teachings. The seed faith doctrine was made popular by Oral Roberts. Oral uses the phrase “Have a need? Plant a seed”. According to Oral: “God himself has established the law of sowing and reaping, of giving and receiving. Under the New Covenant you can make every act of giving a seed planted which brings you into the SEED-FAITH lifestyle of sowing and reaping which I have been led to call ‘A Blessing-Pact Covenant with God. (taken from Pg. 9 of Oral Robert’s Holy Bible commentary.)
FACTOID: After Richard divorced Patti, with Oral’s approval, Patti wrote a book, “Ashes to Gold.” In this book, Patti Roberts compares the “seed-faith” tactic of former father-in-law Oral Roberts to Johann Tetzel’s practice of selling indulgences.
Oral Roberts worked very hard to purchase every copy printed to keep the truth off the shelves (The DMI archives has a copy).
