Pat Robertson and the Prayer Closet

Pat Robertson just can’t seem to keep himself out of the news. Perhaps it’s intentional? Or maybe not. Maybe he’s just getting older and the lips have become looser, allowing the core of his beliefs to slip out. Either way, the news blurbs haven’t been too flattering as it only adds to the smear campaign against Christianity. Ironic how a man trying to protect his faith in the public can damage it so much more.

Pat’s latest mishap came from statements about “demon possessed clothing“. I’m paraphrasing but that about sums it up. Unfortunately those statements do reflect the opinions of what I like to call the “Frank Peretti generation” (something that probably gives Frank a good chuckle).Pat Robertson

I’ll be the first to admit there’s a lot we don’t know about the interoperation of this physical world with the spiritual one. Pat Robertson could be correct. Perhaps demons are running around the planet, bored and looking for things to do, finding good things like sweaters and Levi jeans to development an emotional attachment to. I seriously doubt it.

What I do know for sure is that engaging in the same ritualistic practices as witches and warlocks is a pathetic form of Christianity. On one side of the cheek Christendom mocks such sorcery as ‘powerless’ but then turns around and engages in the same behaviour by ‘undoing’ the curse. It is a circular reasoning that undoubtedly gives Lucifer a great joy because the church is busy battling what it has very little knowledge of.

There’s good reason that God didn’t give us more information on how the day to day of spiritual activity takes place. It would probaly freak us out or worse, distract us from our job as Ambassadors. God made the points about demonic activity that he wanted to make in Scripture and little else for our own good.

I would love to know more about the subject – it’s intriguing (and rightfully so). But I’m going to have to wait until judgment day and God delivers said truth to me. Until then, while I’m in my prayer closet, I’ll be praying for the salvation of people and not the cleansing of my t-shirt collection.
