Ernest Angley, My New Favorite
(with comments)

Regular readers of this blog know that I'm a huge fan of Benny Hinn. However, I've been getting bored with Benny lately, and I've been seeking a new favorite Christian. I think I found one: Ernest Angley.

He's not as good looking as Benny, but he has his own plane, and heals people all over the world. Like Benny, he doesn't take credit for the miracles:

Do you need a miracle or healing? You can have a miracle; you can have a healing today. Untold multitudes have been healed as they put their hand against mine on the screen. You can have your deliverance. This is just a point of contact. I am not a healer; Jesus is the Healer.

Plus, Ernie has free music on his Web site.

Here he is in action. He uses a technique similar to Benny's but it's not as violent:

    Remarks stir flap over faith at Capitol -- God is disgusted with California legislators – at least some of them, according to an evangelical chaplain who ruffled feathers this week in the same Capitol where he leads Bible studies for lawmakers. Ralph Drollinger, who played basketball at UCLA in the 1970s and now heads Capitol Ministries, criticized lawmakers who participate in a separate fellowship group that embraces people of all faiths without insisting that they accept Jesus Christ as Messiah.http://www.sacbee.com/111/story/742653.html

    I believe a few years ago this fine fellow was investigated for tax fraud, and claimed that 'the devil' had got into his computer. He's always been a personal favourite.

    Wally. That was my absolute favorite program. I've never understood why some program exec doesn't do it again.

    That's THIS guy? Oh, that's funny. I remember my brother and I catching his show while flicking through the channels one day. We put our hands on the screen when he said, "Put your hands on the screen!" That was a good laugh.

    What a nut.

    Ernest has been around forever. Seeing him on TV was my first exposure to the wonderful world of televangelism. I never thought anyone could top him, until I saw Dr. Eugene Scott. I do have to give Benny Hinn cudos on dress, though.

    I understand that he's practically wiped out AIDS in Africa.

    He runs his operation in Ohio from Rex Humbard's Cathedral of Tomorrow. Now named Grace Cathedral. It has a buffet, but no brewery. He's missing a great opportunity.

    I agree. Benny's "holier-than-thou" white suits are the best.

    I think we should invite them to a cage match.

    The winner gets named JWalk's Most Favored Egoist.

    Darn - he's good! Very eloq, ah eleq, ah ell - well he can talk good!
    But Benny is so handsome in the white suit. Though Gee's idea with the cage match sounds pretty fine to me - have the two sort it out!
    Maybe a new league! The CEWL! Christian Evangelist Wrestling League.

    I remember seeing EA on television while growing up. I have always liked the way he says "JEEESUSSS!"

    I live in the Akron, Ohio area where Rev. Ernest's HQ is located. He owns a 747 that, when he's in town, he parks at the local regional airport. Another interesting side note is what is on the grounds of the Grace Cathedral that John mentioned above. Ernest inheritted Rex Humbard's unfinished Space Needle-like tower when he bought the complex. The locals called it Rex's Erection or now Ernest's Erection.

    Do these guys hypnotize people into falling down, or do people fall down becuase they believe that is what they are supposed to do? Do people really believe they fell down because of some kind of supernatural force, or do they realize they are faking? If they know they are faking, how do they rationalize it? Do the same people that are faking also realize that there probably isn't a god?

    This is where the term "pushover" comes from.

    I think there is something in the water in the Akron, Ohio area. I was born and raised in Cuyahoga Falls, a suburb of Akron Ohio. My brother knew and ran some with Rex's son Don Humbard. Supposedly Rex borrowed the money from the Teamsters (Jimmy Hoffa) to build the Cathedral of Tomorrow. Rex owned things of varied interest. He had a discount store (Shopper's Fair) next to the Cathedral, which I think is the buffet now. He also owned a girdle factory, a paint manufacturing business and broke every security law in his dealings. I had an Akron (Ohio) University law student tell me (20 years ago) they studied Rex's transactions in what not to do. The unfinished tower, A single slender tower of cement, a couple hundred feet high is still know affectionately today as "Rex's Erection". A co-worker of mine said he went to the Cathedral Buffet a couple years ago and Angley was there. He said Angley had on a lot of makeup on and appeared strange looking.

    Hard to believe that in this day and age, in a world where we can easily educate ourselves about each other, that there would be anyone naive enough to believe this crap.
    The other question is "How can we do something about it?"

    Well, you might start with jackboots and a brown shirt and see if that gives you any ideas about what you "can do about it" ...

    I remember seeing Ernest when I was little - a few decades ago - He must be 100 years old now but he looks exactly the same as he did then.

    When I see something about Benny Hinn I think Beni-Hana or Benny Lava and I get hungry while I start humming a tune.

    Talk about Angley's Ministry and you will have thousands testifying to the reality of the healings and miracles. My friend got healed of juvenile arthritis.

    Ernest Angley can't heal an ant. Jesus is the Healer.

    I know first hand for I was healed of cancer of the bone and muscles [Ewing's Sarcoma] and that is how I came to know Christ [I come from the Hindu faith] Not that I care to witness to Ernest Angley [though his ministry is different from the "faith healers], what I am more concerned is about testifying that God heals.

    And I'm an Engineer and plan to do my doctorate. Faith overrides science.

    I challenge you to investigate his ministry. Many reporters have investigated his ministry and have testified to it's genuineness. One reporter came with her blind mother and she received full sight.
