The mind of the Bible-believer is still a vast mystery to me (even after reading the book--- grin!). I just do not understand how people can "think" in blatently delusional ways. Take the following for an example:

Quote #1:
Spiritual Bond Miraculously Revealed

#2:
It reflects the history and spiritual guidance that played such a key role in the development and growth of The Christian Broadcasting Network.

#3:
details to confirm Pat Robertson's vision from God to come to Virginia and claim a television station for His glory.

#4:
exciting revelation of CBN's deep spiritual bond

#5:
Why had God sent him from New York specifically

#6:
why was God relocating CBN's headquarters

#7:
[god] would have located CBN wherever this had happened

#8:
The Lord miraculously led Phyllis to the right libraries

Now then. What does all of the above say definitively about "Pat" Robertson and his cult? It says that he is ARROGANT and HUBRISTIC in the extreme. Indeed, one could say he is utterly mad with self- importance and megalomania. How is it possible that hundreds of thousands of people do not see Robertson's insanity, and send him money instead?

I dunno. His sickness is blatently obvious to me.
