During the question and answer segment of "The 700 Club" a viewer asked televangelist Pat Robertson advice on what to do with their haunted house last month. Robertson told the viewer to get out and sell the house as fast as she can.
Lori posted: "My husband and I moved into a house a year ago. I'm a strong Christian with unwavering faith. I believe the Lord tried to stop us from buying it at every turn. Everything has been very difficult here; everything has to be redone, rehung, etc. The last few months weird things have been happening in the home. I've seen doors open and close on their own, we can't find something and then it appears, and things fall off shelves without reason. What do you recommend?" The viewer asked Robertson advice on how to cope with living in a haunted house.
"I'd sell that house in a heartbeat. I would run to the nearest realtor, put it on the market, cut the price in half, and get out. That's what I would do." Robertson said as he laughed. "Get out as fast as you can," he echoed on "The 700 Club" episode that aired on June 25.
Last summer on an episode that aired July 30, a viewer contacted Robertson for help with a similar question. The viewer claimed that her house was haunted and asked Robertson what to do about the spirits. Robertson told the viewer that he doesn't believe in ghosts and said to either have the home exorcised or just burn the house down.
The anonymous viewer posted: "My house is haunted. There is moaning coming from the walls, lights turn on and off, the TV changes channels on it own, the beds move, stuff floats off tables, mirrors break, and there is sometimes a creepy fog. The ghosts look like people, but have dark blue light around their feet and hands. What do I do?" The viewer asked Robertson.
After the viewer's question was read, the 84-year-old former Southern Baptist minister responds by laughing and his first recommendation to the viewer was to burn the house down.
"If it was me I would burn the house down and move on," Robertson said as he laughed. "I don't believe in ghosts. I don't think the bible supports the concept of people coming back to haunt houses with chains and all that stuff. I do believe in demons, the bible clearly says there's demons and fallen angels."
Robertson says that there is no such thing as ghosts and that the entities people think to be ghosts are actually demonic entities. He recommended that the home should have an exorcism performed to eradicate the demons.
"You need to get people to come and do an exorcism over that property and command those demons to leave. You take authority in the name of Jesus and if you can't do that, move," Robertson suggested to the viewer.
