Controversial televangelist Pat Robertson recently advised a mother to investigate any possible occult connections her family might have had in order to help cure her son of an illness.
On the Monday episode of "The 700 Club" during the "Bring It On" segment, Robertson was asked a question by a mother identified as "Dianne."
Deliver Us From Evil, the latest in a string of Hollywood projects inspired by belief in the demonic, is based on the experiences of a former police officer-turned-demonologist who says everyone born automatically becomes involved in a spiritual battle, whether or not they believe in God.
"I'm a messenger that's it. I'm not an angel. The word angel means 'messenger.' But I'm a human person and I just have this message and you can believe in it if you want. You don't have to. I don't really care," explains former New York Police Department Sergeant Ralph Sarchie in a behind-the-scenes video on how his work inspired Deliver Us From Evil.
Sarchie, who uses colorful language to explain what happens when one chooses to "expose the devil," as he describes his work, compares the negativity he would routinely encounter during his 18 years as a police officer to the negativity he is exposed to by the demonic during exorcisms. more >>
