Yesterday, televangelist Jim Bakker was joined by Pastor John Kilpatrick, better known to readers of this site as the guy who hilariously speaks in tongues and once claimed to see a missing hand grow back.
At around the 28:30 mark of the show (which I can’t embed here), Kilpatrick was talking about witchcraft and the “Jezebel spirit.” Apparently, if simple tasks seem impossible and you’re feeling hopeless, overwhelmed, and ineffective — signs of depression, if nothing else — then Satan has a grip on you. It was your typical absurd sermon from someone who has no connection to reality.
But a couple of minutes later, around 31:30, there was a small crash in the room. A display stand fell off the desk and a crew member quickly picked it up while everyone on stage had a good laugh about it… but when Kilpatrick began speaking again, he immediately attributed the accident to the supernatural.
KILPATRICK:… You know what? I’m not joking with you… I felt something cold go by me. I’m telling you the truth. I felt something cold go right by my head. Oh, hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! [Speaks in tongues]
The audience loved every moment of it.
It just shows you how warped this mindset gets. There are no minor accidents in their world. Every stumble, every fallen object, every mistake is a sign from God. And no one ever speaks up to say “Maybe we just pushed the table a little too hard.” That would be heresy.
