The Massillon Independent yesterday reported that faith healer Dr Issam Nemeh made an appearance on Sunday at Walsh University (I had earlier discussed the man and his ministry here).
The paper said over 125 people showed up to have Dr Nemeh pray over them. It sounded like the typical charismatic healing service, with people swooning and falling backwards into the waiting arms of “catchers” (boy, does that take me back).
No healings were reported.
Did I say it sounded like a typical charismatic healing service? Not quite. These seekers paid $95 each for tickets to be prayed over.
Let’s see. That’s around $12,000 for the good doctor. Not a bad afternoon’s take, even for a physician.
Lord, have mercy.
