We’re picking up where we left off last week in our discussion of Chapter 23, “Evangelical Occultism”, found in Dave Hunt’s book Occult Invasion: The Subtle Seduction of the World and Church.
Dave, we’re going to jump right in with an example of Word of Faith evangelical occultism which, for some, it may seem like a straightforward con job, but actually it involves the basic elements of occult methodology. The example I’m referring to is found on pages 499-500 of your book, and deals with Oral Roberts and his son Richard and their green and red candles. As you point out, this is but one of Oral’s scores of money-raising gimmicks over the years, most of them based upon his unbiblical “seed faith” ploy. In this case, his ministry mails two tiny “miracle candles,” one red and one green, to those on his mailing list, his so-called “prayer partners,” and the candles are to be used in a “miracle candlelight service.” So how is this supposed to work? I mean, miraculously speaking, of course.
