A “700 Club” viewer recently wrote to the religious TV program about how a woman's teen son was healed by host Pat Robertson's mention of someone with a neck injury.
The viewer claimed that the boy's mother was watching the "700 Club" last month when Robertson gave a "Word of Knowledge" about someone who had a painful neck muscle. Robertson told the unidentified person to put their hand on the neck muscle and claim a healing in the name of Jesus.
The viewer said the mom texted this information to her son, who followed Robertson's instructions and was immediately healed of his neck malady, noted RightWingWatch.org (video below).
"God is almighty," said Robertson. "There's nothing impossible. He can heal cancer, He can heal leukemia, He can heal arthritis; He can heal any condition you’ve got in your body. He made you; He can fix you.”
Robertson then joined hands with "700 Club" co-host Wendy Griffith and prayed, "Somebody has got a lump, a tumor in their abdomen. Put your hand over that area, and that tumor is going down and disappearing even as we speak."
Robertson also healed a hacking cough, while Griffith prayed for the healing of a lump in a woman's breast and added, "It's not serious."
The "Word of Knowledge" that Robertson mentioned is inferred in the Bible at 1 Corinthians 12:8, 1 Corinthians 14:6, 1 Corinthians 13:2 and Ephesians 1:17–19, which never actually mention healing, but rather wisdom and spiritual knowledge.
