    "I've always been skeptical of those television healers who are bald. I mean, if I had that gift, that would be the first thing I'd fix."

    Not that I agree with anything Campolo says, but this is a question I've been asking for years. If Benny Hinn is really such a great miracle worker, why the toupee?

    And while we're on the subject of people who need a miracle for their hair, if Paul Crouch can really do healing miracles like he claims, then why did Jan Crouch have to have surgery to tackle her breast cancer? Why didn't Paul Crouch just rebuke the cancer in Jesus' name and make it go away?

    Chris Rosebrough, a Christian commentator I greatly appreciate, show a clip of Gloria Copeland preaching that sickness, death, and aging are the results of sin. Well, what do you know! Like the proverbial blind squirrel who eventually stumbles upon an acorn, a Copeland finally got something right.

    The problem, as Rosebrough went onto explain, is that Gloria Copeland preaches that you can rebuke sickness and death and make them go away, healing the sick and raising the dead.

    He then shows a series of photos of Gloria Copeland aging over the last thirty years or so. Crows feet, wrinkles, age spots, a few gray hairs, etc. and points out that if she can rebuke aging, she should prove it by doing so.

    Even the most "faithful" and "annointed" WoF heretic dies, no matter how loudly they shout that they can stave off death and illness with their confession.

    Oral Roberts: dead. Kenneth Hagin: dead. William Branham: dead. E.W. Kenyon: dead. Katherine Kuhlman: dead. And the list just goes on and on.
