British evangelist Smith Wigglesworth died in 1947, but his violent methods of freeing people of their demonic “spirits” apparently lives on through his great-granddaughter Lil de Fin. She was interviewed on a recent episode of It’s Supernatural — must see TV, really — and host Sid Roth offered a disturbing reenactment of how Wigglesworth “cured” a sick baby.
If punching and kicking infants isn’t your thing, you may want to look away.
… Some parents had a two-month-old baby, dying in the hospital. The parents kidnapped the child, took the child to a Smith Wigglesworth meeting, and Smith looks at the child, looks at the parents, and say[s], “Can I do what God tells me to do?” Well, what would you do if you were the parents? The child’s dying anyway, right?
He takes the baby, two-month-old — THROWS THE BABY AGAINST THE WALL! The baby! Then the baby’s on the floor! Have you ever seen someone play soccer? Have you ever seen them kick a soccer ball? He does that with the baby! The baby falls into the congregation.
Yeah, I don’t know what I just watched either. Let’s just hope that people like that never come into contact with your children because their God is sadistic and they’re following His orders.
