    • Satisfactory Conservative Christian Talk/Preaching

      8.0
      The 700 Club has been on for many years, more than any other Christian show, and I think this is the gracious work of God. But there are some pros and cons to this show.

      Pros:

      -Quality news coverage with a Christian perspective (Pat or Gordon will usually provide the "two cents" to substantiate this)

      -Examples of Christian witness worldwide.

      -Interviews with experts on health, nutrition, finances, whenever the need arises.

      -Testimonials portraying critical events in people's lives, leading them to Christ.

      -Advice for spiritual matters, especially in the "Bring it On" section.

      Cons:

      -The testimonials, of course, by nature, can only be reenactments developed for broadcast, so they must be taken with a grain of salt sometimes (Christians are called to be "Bereans" concerning questionable scenarios, namely, testing them against Scripture)

      -Miracles can apparently, based on their teaching and through the viewer's prayer, be solicited from God for any pain or ailment. If it isn't totally up to God, and of course, rare, it isn't a miracle!

      -Pat believes in an old earth, which may be at odds with young-earth creationists (like me!) But that's not as critical.

      -Most importantly, unlike the other elements of the show, the "call to belief" would be of little relevance for those who already believe. If you're saved, you're on your way to heaven, period. They don't seem to cater to existing believers



      It's a great show, but just like anything, focus on what's relevant to you and your Christian doctrinal convictions.moreless

      The show makes religion look like an absolute joke. Pat Robertson is a delusional, senile, and a racist old man.



      "On the February 7, 2007 edition of The 700 Club, Robertson stated that people who have too much plastic surgery "got the eyes like they're Oriental" and stretched his eyelids in a manner stereotypical of



      "Robertson was criticized in September 2012 after a man named Michael called the The 700 Club asking for advice on what to do about his wife not respecting him. Robertson called the woman a "rebellious child" who did not want to "submit to any He jokingly suggested that Michael become a Muslim and move to Saudi Arabia where he could beat her. Critics noted that Robertson's comments about wife-beating were edited out of the episode when it appeared on the Christian Broadcasting Network"moreless

      The 700 club is a very good program that teaches us to love God and to love one another. It shows how good people help one another, and how christians share the word of God. People have been transformed because of this program.
    • A strong dose of love, peace, forgiveness, miracles, charity and truths you won't hear elsewhere.

      It takes an open mind and willing heart! It is AMAZING how this show can be life-saving and fresh air to millions around the world, yet most young internet users will rip it to shreds, calling it evil, and worse. This show is intent on teaching the treasures of scripture and knowing God. Millions of people in need are helped by this ministry, they literally save countless lives. They teach how there is wickedness in this world and how it sneaks into our lives and distorts our vision. Yes, Pat dares stick close to the Bible's teachings, including the unpopular stuff. Is he often insensitive in his interpretations of things? YES. His son Gordon and other co-hosts are much more sensitive. The show keeps Love, charity, and healing at the core, with criticism of gov't and liberal political issues added in. We KNOW and even accept that governments (and most media) don't necessarily tell us the truth-- so why shouldn't we listen to viewpoints from someone whose only loyalty is to God? Understanding the whole picture requires laying aside things we disagree with long enough to truly experience this world of RELIEF from God that this show offers. And YES look to other places like The Purpose Driven Life and other classic Christian works to fully open the increasingly secret treasure to you. One teacher is not enough. Are not all our spirits yearning for love and honesty in this life? Believe nothing from an angry spirit. The flesh is wicked, but if we truly desire, our hearts and souls learn to see and breathe the sacred truth. This show helps me feel the very presence of God.moreless
    • This show is such a joke.

      2.5
      Where do they come off calling people who are athiests and non-religious "satanists"? One time my ex-fiancee, who was catholic called the show and asked if it would be wrong for him to marry me, because i was athiest, and he said it would be, because i had to get rid of satan and have a relationship with god before i can get married and i was like WTF? When my ex-fiancee believed what the 700 club told him, i was like, this is some dude who's just using watered-down Christianity as a way to make money from the show. And where does Pat Robertson come off telling good christians to leave their spouces over alzheimers, telling them that a person with alzheimers is already "dead" to their spouce? That's not only breaking the vow till death do us part, but it also breaks the vow in sickness and in health.moreless
