This crazy chick I follow has mentioning this gut a lot lately.  I now see where she gets many of her ideas.  He must be popular with the Pentecostal, spritual healer groups. Anyone heard of him?

I see he likes to punch the cancer out of his patients. I bet that worked wonders.

No, he's punching the devil! Not an actual human being with a serious medical condition. What an asshole.  I'm so curious if he's obscure or Benny Hinn types love him. Do IFB people know of him?

They also did the same thing in the age of TV:

 

 

Incidentally, Wigglesworth was quite popular with certain Pentecostal circles in the U.K. (where Pentecostals tend to be much more working class than charismatics).

I hadn't thought of that name in about 50 years. Our Assemblies of God pastor was very fond of quoting Smith Wigglesworth. I guess he didn't try to employ SW's corporal healing techniques because he thought that might be going to far. Our pastor also gave up on faith healing when it became obvious that he didn't have a knack for it.

In addition to what else was mentioned earlier , Smith Wigglesworth also was known to have promoted intense fasting , straight from the horses mouth https://jenmiskov.com/blog/2014/08/22/2014822feasting-on-god-the-lost-art-of-fasting-part-1   .  This anorexia mirabilis is intended among other things to purify the soul by mortifying the flesh .  When I was a young teenager , I had actually done this for a time . I went from 200 to 168 pounds before I finally came to my senses , and decided that it wasn't worthwhile , or helpful . I probably could have stood to lose the excess weight , but starvation is not a good way to go about doing  it, I think .   P.S. I think that this song sums up how it felt during this time of crisis , in which I had sought to acquire a testimony of having attained entire sanctification , as an instantaneous second work of grace , as the Holiness movement  teaches .   

Spoiler

Needless to say , I no longer hold to Christian perfectionist teachings , such as preached by the likes of Smith Wigglesworth .

Thank you @Marmion and welcome to Free Jinger! Man these "holiness and healing" types are just such a straight up mess. I am reminded of Aimee Semple Macpherson who was performing "miracle healings" all the while battling and losing the battle with alcohol and barbiturate addiction. All of these "miracle healings" did absolutely nothing to put hospitals out of business. I despise these types who prey on the desperation of people, just like the celebrity "medium types." From Smith Wigglesworth to Aimee Semple Macpherson to Kathleen Kuhlman to Benny Hinn there's a charlatan born every minute.
