This Monday, televangelist Pat Robertson told his viewers that “sophisticated” Americans are less likely to experience divine miracles because they are prone to believe in more scientifically-based things.
On his CBN show The 700 Club, Robertson responded to a viewer who asked why “amazing miracles happen with great frequency in places like Africa” and not here in the United States.
“People overseas didn’t go to Ivy League schools,” Robertson replied. “We’re so sophisticated, we think we’ve got everything figured out. We know about evolution, we know about Darwin, we know about all these things that says God isn’t real.”
“We have been inundated with skepticism and secularism,” he went on to say. “And overseas, they’re simple, humble. You tell them God loves them and they say, ‘Okay, he loves me.’ You say God will do miracles and they say, ‘Okay, we believe him.’”
