Christian publisher: ‘Demonic forces’ are what kept Stephen Hawking alive for so long

Carl Gallup is a pro-Trump pastor who hosts a weekly podcast called Freedom Friday. Last week, he interviewed the executive editor of the PNN Network, Mike Shoesmith, who had a theory about why famed physicist Stephen Hawking was able to live for so long with ALS.

According to Shoesmith, Hawking’s death just weeks after the death of the Reverend Billy Graham was no coincidence.

“So in 1942, that’s when Billy Graham’s ministry really takes off; and who do you think was born in 1942? Stephen Hawking,” Shoesmith said.

“Stephen Hawking comes from a long line of atheists—his father and all these people—so I believe the devil said, ‘Okay, this guy was just born and I’m going to use this guy. This guy is already primed to accept my message that there is no God. He is already primed for it, he is going to be awash, immersed in atheism all his years as a child, I’m going to take over this guy’s life.’” he continued.

“I believe Stephen Hawking was kept alive by demonic forces,” Shoesmith said.

“I believe that it was the demonic realm that kept this man alive as a virtual vegetable his entire life just so he could spread this message that there is no God.”

Shoesmith added that all Hawking had to do to be cured of ALS was to give up his life as a scientist and hand over his soul to Jesus.
