Exclamation Peter Popoff: Another false prophet to beware of



Advertise Here

The bible warned of people like him. Basically what he is doing is he is trying to sell God's free gifts. He promises in his letters that if you send him a certain amount of money, miracles will happen to you. He is using God to scam people out of millions.Him and people like him have actually turned people away from Christ. He also runs a scam on his television show where he "miraculously" tells people in the audience what their afflictions are and claims he has a direct link to God, but he is wearing an earpiece and people offstage are giving him the answers. The first link is his website. The second link shows all the details of his scams and how he bilks people out of their cash.

My belief is that he used to be a man of God, but eventually the money and power and Satan got to him.

Sounds like Peter Popoff has been drinking too much Popov.

Like many he fell victim to one or more of the 3 'G's'.

He's been doing this stuff for a long time now and I'm still amazed people fall for it. Here's a video of him from the 1980s being fed information into his ear piece and then using that to appear as if he was being given miraculous information. You'll see his performance but the audio that was picked up by a radio was also added.

I was introduced to Peter Popoff during a bout of insomnia about 3 nights ago. Unfortunately, even though the video stated he went bankrupt awhile back, he was on the tube the other night "giving away" his miracle spring water. Almost makes you sick watching the old ladies fall for his garbage.
I don't buy into any of the crap he spews. I don't think he has any healing powers at all. But I do kind of wonder what the deal is when you see these little old gals tossing down their walkers and canes and dancing a Russian jig across the stage. Is that part psychological or .....?

Yup, he's a true P.O.S. Anyone recall when his miracle spring water was claimed to be from Chernobyl? That cracked me up. However, my all time favorite guy to watch was Dr. Gene Scott he was a complete lunatic. I loved hearing him say things like "The Bermuda triangle is caused by the Russians having a giant antena on the other side of the world and they're using it to beam cancer wave through the planet at America."

YouTube - god's angry man - featuring Dr. Gene Scot - herzog
I liked listening to him talk about his horses then abrasively grumbling, "GET ON THE PHONE." Or, in English, send me some more money.
