Who Said It? - Part VII

Same crowd, different participants!

PERSON 1: "Adam was a superbeing when God created Him. I don’t know whether people even know this, but he was the first superman that ever lived. (PERSON 2 is heard laughing on the set.) First of all, the Scriptures declare clearly that he had dominion over the fowls of the air, the fish of the sea, which means he used to fly."

PERSON 2: "Wow!"

PERSON 1: "Of course, how can you have dominion over the birds and not be able to do what they do?"

PERSON 2: "Whoa, I mean, wait a minute. PERSON 1, wait a minute."

PERSON 1: "I’ll prove it to you. The word dominion in the Hebrew clearly declares that, if you have dominion over a subject, you can do everything that subject does. In other words, that subject, if it does something that you cannot do, you don’t have dominion over it. I’ll prove it further. Adam not only flew, he flew to space. He used to be . . . He, He, He, He, He, He . . . with one thought He’d be on the moon."
Well, I guess that "proves" it!

Wait, no it doesn't! Read that last statement again:
"I'll prove it further. Adam not only flew, he flew to space..."
THAT'S PROOF in this fairy-tale world of their's???

OK. Person #1 is Benny Hinn, gotta be. Don't really know who the other is but a TBN evangelista would be a good guess since that's the only place you ever see Binny HInn.

It's proof enough for them if they believe the fairy tale in the previous post: "I am a little god." After all, a "little god" can make up his own truth.

James Robinson?

OK, that's just about everyone who reads this thing so here's the answer:

Benny Hinn is speaking the "proofs" and Jan Crouch is the breathless interviewer. AHH, the wonders of TBN!

We really need to pray for these people:

Father, our Creator, who is Holy above all, and from Whom issues all Truth and Love,

We thank you for your righteous judgement without which your mercy would be meaningless.

We thank you especially for your Son, Jesus Christ, who paid the price we couldn't pay and live. We confess that we are wholly unworthy of the gift of your salvation. We have sinned against you time and again and yet you strive with us. This for which we are grateful.

In this vein we ask you to contend against what we understand are apostate teachers. We pray that you will convict them of their sin and error in teaching. We pray that the impact of their error will be of little effect and that those who hear them will learn the truth. We pray for the opportunity to teach your truth over and against that of these apostates. Accordingly, we ask that you keep us from teaching that which is not true. We confirm with you our desire to do so.

Above all, may you be glorified in all things.

In the name of Him whose name is Truth and whose courage never failed, Jesus Christ our Lord.
