CBN's Pat Robertson

On Thursday’s episode of CBN’s religious talk show “The 700 Club,” televangelist and conservative icon Pat Robertson declared that the Christian deity figure had subconsciously told him that one lucky viewer of Robertson’s program will be made a millionaire through the power of Christ.

“God is going to supply a million dollars, somebody is praying right now, right this second,” Robertson said, his eyes closed in prayer. “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’s name.”

The idea that a diety somehow interacts with monetary systems to enrich its favorite people is a relatively new one in Christianity called the prosperity doctrine, which some mainstream Christians reject but many evangelicals, like megachurch pastor Joel Osteen, enthusiastically embrace.

Robertson’s own net worth exceeds $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. In January 2012, Robertson also claimed that God had told him who was going to win the 2012 presidential election, but after President Barack Obama won re-election Robertson insisted that he simply misunderstood. He’s also made various claims about natural disasters being brought about by human sexuality and a lack of belief in his deity, and just earlier this week Robertson cautioned that Christians should pray over clothing bought at thrift stores because evil spirits may be attached to it.

This video is from “The 700 Club,” aired Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013, as snipped by Right Wing Watch.
