A few days ago, I wrote about Pastor Robby Dawkins (no relation to Richard) and how he thinks he helped raise someone from the dead (with God’s help, of course).
In short, Dawkins said a man started convulsing as he was about to give a sermon. Dawkins ran to the man’s side, rebuked the “spirit of death,” and helped the man recover!
That man’s sister, however, refutes the entire story. She says he was simply having a seizure. While he needed hospitalization, he was never dead. She went on to claim that the pastor of the church that invited Dawkins to speak even apologized for bringing him there.
Now, Dawkins is trying to do damage control, and it’s hilarious.
He first reposted the doctor’s report verifying what happened at the event:
So he had a pulse… and he was breathing… but he was totally dead.
Keep in mind this isn’t an official report. And it’s weird that we never get to know the name of the doctor…
But Dawkins may not realize that Facebook saves previous edits to your Facebook posts, and if you look up an earlier version of the piece, the doctor’s name is right there:
Dr Alastair Murdoch BSc MBChB MRCP FRCGP PgC
I’m not questioning his credentials, only that this hardly qualifies as an unbiased, official report.
But this is the best Dawkins has to offer. A bullshit “Doctor’s Note” written by someone who just happens to be a Christian not specializing in the disorder the man had, “eyewitness testimony” by someone who certainly has no medical background and didn’t even bother videotaping the incident, and a slam on the man’s actual family for questioning Dawkins’ Total Awesomeness:
Multiple Eyewitnesses, Dr. Report or an unbelieving sister who wasn’t present during the miracle… You decide.
I’m going with the sister who talks to the brother on a regular basis and is simply appalled at how Dawkins is using her family in order to promote himself, even if the facts of the story don’t add up.
It’s pathetic, it’s manipulative, and it’s all in the name of Christ.
I reached out to Dawkins last week for more information on this story. He still hasn’t responded.
