Christian broadcasting giant Pat Robertson, who created the iconic Christian Broadcasting Network in 1960, died Thursday morning at his home in Virginia Beach, Virginia, at age 93.
Robertson was best known for hosting The 700 Club, the flagship program of his media ministry. He also founded a Christian university—Regent University in 1977—wrote several Christian books and began a legal advocacy group and an international ministry specializing in disaster relief.
CBN tweeted Thursday morning, “With great sadness, we announced that Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson has gone home to be with his Lord and Savior today, June 8, 2023. Thank you for your prayers for the Robertson family and the ministry of CBN at this time.
JERUSALEM, ISRAEL – I’m so sad and yet so honored to report that my friend, Pat Robertson—a pioneer and titan of Christian media and conservative politics and a great friend and lover of Israel—has finished his race and gone home to heaven to be with the Lord.
He was 93 years old, having been born on March 22, 1930.
I have personally known Pat for 20 years and considered him a friend and a mentor when it comes to being a courageous and completely unconventional media and ministry entrepreneur.
Persecution often starts small, as a whisper in the ears of the public who are unsure about what they are hearing.
This is because Satan is an excellent deceiver. Having honed his skill at manipulation throughout the course of human history, riling up crowds through unrestricted emotions and chaos has become a successful tactic of making regular citizens complicit in the persecution of those they do not know or understand.
It is not only Satan who has excelled in sowing seeds of hatred toward Christians and Jews throughout history, but his minions, some great, some small, have become master manipulators as well.
