Televangelist Pat Robertson claimed last month that God told him that one of his 700 Club viewers was going to get $1 million dollars.
“God is going to supply a million dollars, somebody is praying right now, right this second, you’re praying for a million dollars and God said, ‘I have heard your prayer, I know your need, and I’m going to supply the need that you requested,’ it’s done, in Jesus’ name,'" said Robertson at the time.
According to RightWingWatch.org, Robertson said on today's 700 Club that he “talked to a businessman a couple of days ago who unexpectedly got a check for $1.1 million from BP" (video below).
“His income went down at a particular point of time in the Gulf, and they were paying off everybody who had a dip in income, just gave him a check,” Robertson said of the "unexpected" check.
BP has been reimbursing various businesses near the Gulf of Mexico as part of a compensation deal due to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
