A lot of people are shocked when Pat Roberson makes bizarre statements every so often on his television show. I’m not. I am not left wondering why he said this or that because I understand it stems from his sick and perverted, health-wealth, dominion postmillennialism (to be sure, there are other versions of postmillennialism that deplore Robertson’s health-wealth dominion theology, so he obviously does not represent other versions of it). Russell Moore writes:
In a recent broadcast of The 700 Club, a woman sent in a question about a man who wouldn’t marry her because she has children who were adopted internationally. If they were her “own” biological children, he would have no problem, she said. But because they were adopted, he saw too much risk. Host Pat Robertson’s female co-host bristled and said he was acting like a “dog.” Robertson disagreed.
He said the man “didn’t want to take on a United Nations,” and that, after all, you never know about adopted children; they might have brain damage and “grow up weird.”
Lord, please restrain Robertson’s damnable prosperity ministry.
