Crashing a Faith-Healing

Well, maybe not “crashing” per se… but you’ll get our gist.

At a local faith-healing event, David demonstrates how the “miracle” performed actually works, and he debates with Pastor Lamont Melrose of the Potters House Christian Fellowship Church (Pasadena, TX) amid his own congregation.

  2. If this guy is truly a healer, then one would think that he could heal his own inability to speak Spanish so he wouldn’t need a translator!

  3. You said in the video that you personally know people (plural I think) that have died directly as a result of faith healers telling them not to take their medication. Can you name these people here please? Not that I doubt you, though I may a little, I just want to help keep you honest too 🙂

    I may sound like im a against what you did in this video which I am not, well not entirely. I’m a christian and beleive if faith healers are false and causing detrment to people then they should be shown for what they are. Benny Hinn is a classic example of a charlatan fruit loop, who other christians have exposed as such, and rightly so.

    Obviously my support doesn’t extend to your comments about there not being anything supernatural, though I support your right to wrongly believe that 🙂

  4. Are you going to be making this available as a podcast? I really want to watch it but I work in Afghanistan and the internet here is way too slow to stream a 30 minute youtube video…it keeps locking up.

  5. This is the problem with “unlearned” men. Which is a point of pride for the Potter’s House. They know enough Bible to make them dangerous. Case in point; at around 22 minutes into this Lamont, starts talking about Elymas, but he gets the story wrong. It was not Peter that “rebuked” him but instead it was Paul. That may seem like a trival point to make but it shows the basis of a lack of education, which is how the Potter’s House likes to keep it’s pastors and church members. Because without knowledge, fear is a more powerful and useable weapon.
    Note: I have known Lamont since he first joined the church in the early 1990’s back in Killeen, TX. I spent 11 years in the Potters House until I finally could stand it no more. I can tell you stories. Horrible horrible stories of the people and the leadership of this Bible based cult, called the Potter’s House

    • Number one your trivial is wrong between Peter and Paul. It was Peter who rebuked the sorcer read your bible backslider. If I was in Lamont shoes I would had rebuke Satan sharply and sent him on his way.

  6. Wao! this whole video goes to show how much prove YOU need to convince yourself that God is not real!….I think the funny thing is you are going sooo out of your way to prove Christians wrong….now don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of fake people out there that sadly use Christianity as a cover up. Just like Atheist use their “belief” to feel better about their life. You didn’t have any solid proof to show this healing crusade was fake…you just talked about what YOU believed! no real proof whatsoever!!! you don’t believe in anything, but yet you DO! you believe there is no God…so sorry but you are a fake Atheist needing approval of others and that is why you make videos! you can’t judge one healing crusade from all of them! this pastor told you he believes in doctors and yet you still went against him! even in your video, you show how of a liar you are! you spoke to the pastor in a way that you made yourself look like if you were just looking for fake people yet on your video you mock him! you are worse then the fake healers!!!!

  7. Of course and without a doubt this website is demonstration of the devils craftiness trying to debunk the word of God. WARNING to the redheaded backslider gentleman and his camera clone, (David) claims he grew up in church. I’m sure you remember this scripture:

    Matthew 18:6 –
    “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

    Obviously you need a real job (you must not be a good magician), because you got to much time on your hands. Be careful of what you do and say for there is a God in Heaven who is a Judge.

    Backslider come home before it’s to late. NOW Debunk that!
    By the way I have two degrees and will have a third before the year is out.

    I really don’t think I’m naive, unlearned or under-educated. And the wonderful part of it all is I’m saved and preach Jesus too. Oh by the way I pray for the sick.

    I left you my name because I’m not a internet troll.

  8. You don’t need to use scare tactics to keep a hold on your congregation and pray on those that are not knowledgeable of faith and the bible. You strip families apart. You use God to hide behind for your wrongful purposes! God is love! Love! Love! How dare you destroy using the word. You know how strong speaking the word is. How dare you manipulate God’s children into looking up to you. a mere mortal man with out a conscience. it is all about control and your individual greed. One day it will come crashing down around you. I will be there to witness it all……….
