Controversial televangelist Pat Robertson recently told a viewer that he has cured deafness through prayer in the past and that he did not know what she was "doing wrong" in her effort to do the same.
On a Wednesday episode of the Christian Broadcasting Network program "The 700 Club," Robertson received a letter during the "Bring it on" segment from the mother of a deaf child.
"My son is hearing impaired and cannot hear at all. I have prayed for his healing; it seems as if God is hearing-impaired. What am I doing wrong?" read the letter, signed by a person identified as "Debbie."
Robertson responded that the issue the mother's child was facing might be a "spirit of deafness," which he had experience dealing with in other people in the past.
"I have dealt with people who are deaf and you rebuke the spirit of deafness and they get healed and so I don't know what you're doing wrong," said Robertson.
"I don't know your son, I don't know you, I don't know what the situation is, but why don't you try that and if it doesn't work try something else."

What is wrong with simply accepting her son for who he is? What kind of message does she give him, that his being deaf makes him less than acceptable to her?
God sends handicapped children to people so that they can demonstrate the generosity of their souls. At least, I believe that.
Is this from the Onion?
He is simply parroting back the question she asked him: “What am I doing wrong?” He is using the term/phrase she used.
Precisely. My Master’s thesis was titled “God is Deaf.” It was a study of deafness as a cultural and spiritual experience.
Pat’s celestial butler.
You can cast out devils and thereby cure ailments and illnesses including deafness, using Jesus’ name, according to the Bible.
Or so I’ve been told.
I'd like to see the person and or persons Pat has healed of any disease. It would make a compelling episode of the "700 Club". All one second of it.
Many disabled people have been blessings to the world.
Pat Robertson.... is he still alive????
It is this type of thinking and attitude that drives good and decent people away from the arms of the church. I think of Joni Eareckson Tada and her story when things like this come to light.
Sometimes life just is and our challenge is to find the joy that is there through our relationship with God.
Giving people either false hope or suggesting that their ‘faith’ isn’t strong enough or their prayers ‘good’ enough is just so wrong. Talk about blasphemy
Yeah but no where in the good Book does it say that God will do this each and every time
My grandfather was a snake handler church member growing up and thought they were nuts. He was a Christian all his life but said he didn’t need to test God to know He existed or that He loved us.
Sometimes God answers a prayer for healing with a no. Ask the Apostle Paul.
God always answers prayer, but sometimes the answer is “no” or “later”.
“You can cast out devils and thereby cure ailments and illnesses including deafness, using Jesus name, according to the Bible.”
It is true. I’ve seen it happen at my church on a regular basis.

“I’d like to see the person and or persons Pat has healed of any disease.”
I personally know people who experienced healing after accepting a “Word of Knowledge” about their condition via the 700 Club.
One was a 10 year old boy who had a stomach ailment that caused him to vomit multiple times a day. He was forced to stay home from school. After months of this, his mother was praying during the 700 Club.
Pat had a Word of Knowledge that God was healing a stomach ailment. The boy came down the steps from his bedroom and told her, “Something is happening to my stomach.”
Needless to say, he was completely healed and is now attending college - disease free.
