Yesterday, Pat Robertson explained that he doesn’t have any psychic powers.

He just has the ability to talk to God and figure out what’s ailing all those people on the other side of the television.

So get your story straight.

The Holy Spirit can give us, by His Spirit, a word that will tell us what’s going on, and we can’t see it, touch it, feel it, so forth. And this isn’t psychic… They are real and we’ve had thousands and thousands of people who have been healed.

It’s not psychic. It’s just magic. Or bullshit. I can never tell the difference.
