Kingdom Warriors’ bullshit revisited
I sent the following to Emmanuel, the owner of Kingdom Warriors dot com.
I read your site and checked out the first video. I have to say what you’re doing is at least irresponsible if not outright dangerous.
To claim that all that people need to overcome illness, fatal or otherwise, is to invoke Jesus’ name you know is patently false. Religious and irreligious die all the time from disease even if they do invoke Jesus’ name. If it really were that simple, anyone who ever called himself a Christian would never die of disease.
Now I’ll move onto the theological implications. You have no evidence that a god, Jesus, or the devil exist, nor of the exact nature of their relationship even if they did. Yes, you can quote Bible verses as you are clearly wont to do, but you must be aware that every faith and belief system has a holy book, they can’t all be right, and so that something is written, even by someone long ago, does not equal evidence of the written word’s validity.
But let’s assume that the written word is valid. This still raises plenty of questions. If your god is omnipotent, he has the power to rid the world of disease. That he hasn’t speaks either to his impotence or his disinterest. Let’s go by what you claim. The devil creates disease. Why does this omnipotent god then not stop the devil? Any way you cut it, what you say flies in the face of proven medical science.
From your videos that I’ve seen, you seem like a decent, concerned, and sincere person. It’s a shame, then, that you choose to put your energy into preaching such obvious falsehoods. If you must spout hogwash, you could at least curtail it by preaching that people seek proper medical care in addition to any religious activity they (futilely) engage in.
