  • John of God

    Hi everyone

    (Lisa and all the other moderators, if this post is out of line or unacceptable, please delete it.)

    I wanted to mention that the healer known as 'John of God' is going to be featured on the show "Prime Time Live" on ABC this Thursday night (2-10-05).

    Here in Phoenix - Prime Time Live - comes on at 9:00pm.

    I want to see this, I am curious about this. From what I understand he does not take any money for this and he says that God heals people through him.

    At this point in my life, I need all the help I can get.

    I just thought I would post this in case anyone else wanted to watch this on TV. I am not trying to impose any beliefs on anyone, I do not know anything about this myself but I thought it would be interesting.

        I too watched part of John of God and came away somewhat dubious. The forceps up the nose thing made me shiver. I wonder what kind of success rate has been documented. Since I fell asleep part way through, they may have stated that in the show and I missed it. Anyway psychic healers have abounded for years. Many are are fakes. This man seemed genuine...but I wonder.
