I thought you did a great job on Friday (20/20). I
believe that episode was great. God Bless You
It's too bad that there is such a lack of
discernment in the church today. Pastors that are teaching that there are
many ways to God. The Lord warned us that their would be false teachers,
false prophets. Wolves in sheep's clothing, hirelings in the church. It's
too bad that they did not give you more time on the program. I have read
many of your teachings and agree with them. The little that you said, may
the Holy Spirit penetrate the hearts that listened for and received the
I didn't think they had
you on very long, maybe a minute? I also thought it wasn't a very good
assessment of hell, especially to the un-saved.
thought the special was
incredible--when you think of all the people who are fooled into thinking
that hell doesn't exist. I was sadden to hear about Carlton Pearson and his
new doctrine. I can only pray for him. It made me wonder about him though
because he stated that he once cast out demons and now he is saying that
hell doesn't exist? It just makes me wonder if he really believed in what he
was doing. I know that in these times people have itching ears and you
manage to give the full complete gospel in the way the Lord wants it given
without compromising, because someone may get their feelings hurt. It's
better for their pride to be hurt than for them to be deceived.
watched 20/20 this Friday. I believe in hell and that the word of God is the
only absolute truth. The TV special about Hell was typical. It was edited
to promote the secular and discredit Christ and Christianity. The Host
appeared bias also. For the few seconds that were allotted to you, I think
you stated the only thing you could say for that short time. The episode was
not attention grabbing with the pagan views they were presenting. I did not
watch the last fifteen minutes as I was too disgusted with their secular
saw the show and it was pretty good; it wasn't what I expected, but it was
good. I thought maybe they would have had more of you in an interview; I
think that would have been more interesting to see. I'm sure they did do an
interview with you but didn't use it. They just used clips of the church and
put in their own commentary into it.

story is powerful (History Channel). Keep up the great work for the Kingdom!
I saw you on television tonight, and you caught my attention. I can see
that you are a true man of God. I seen you performed exorcism on some
people. And I say, you did very well, in doing your part in praying for them
to cast the demons out of them. That is good.
Thank you so much for your letter with the MSNBC clip,
and I watched it with much amazing attitude because you are performing as the
Apostles did during and after the days of our Lord.
It is so awesome to see the secular
media, such as MSNBC, doing an in-depth documentary on exorcism and
deliverance ministries. Many whom saw this program came away educated in what
a true exorcism is rather than the Hollywood's depictions of this process.
Honestly, I have never heard of you before the MSNBC program, but I wanted to
find out more about you, so I did a search on the Internet and uncovered your
web site. I wanted to write you an encouraging word, but my heart was troubled
for what I saw on your site.
That's great that you put up encouraging notes that people wrote about seeing
the MSNBC. I am sure it was a confirmation in your heart what you are doing is
from God, but to post negative things about another ministry or person [Bob
Larson] that is doing the Lord's work isn't okay. If you have a problem
with another person you need to go to them, not by posting negative and cheap
shots to another brother in Christ.
I urge you out of Christian love to review the comments you have posted to the
web site regarding the MSNBC Documentary and see if they are of God. I don't
think God intended the MSNBC Documentary to bring forth a rivalry between two
Exorcists--two men of God, do you?

watched the show and enjoyed seeing the truth on secular television, even
though MSNBC had to present a "balanced" show and others that were
also on the show did not believe in oppressions and possessions we found your
portion of the show very scripturally correct. We likewise have had several
occasions to meet face to face with demons and to cast them out. Most people
don't realize that demons are the reason for most of the problems in society
today, but instead rather believe that it is something else. We appreciate
your direct and honest scriptural instruction given on the show and know that
had MSNBC given you more time, there would have been may more demons cast out
in Jesus Name.

I was very impressed with the show on
Tuesday night! It was very refreshing to hear on national television,
ministers using the name of our Lord and Savior! Not usual fare for the
prime-time genre these days! You are a very
Thank you for being such a wonderful Crusader for Christ!
The images of those poor demon possessed people really was something to
witness. I am amazed that they allowed that on TV....(more of it should
be shown). I hope it will be a cause of many people being Saved and
coming to the Lord as a result of it. If I was not Saved, I would for sure be
after watching that show! Great JOB!
I did watch the program. As expected, they cast doubt
on what is going on with the psychologists. It appears the secular logic is
that the demons from Jesus' day were really psychological problems and that it
is the power of suggestion that keeps you in business. I did find it
interesting to see you in action.
I thought the show was well
done. It is too bad that there were psychologists and "so-called"
religious authorities from academia who were so articulate in their dismissal
of God's workings, but that is to be expected, especially in a secular
presentation. That said, nonetheless, the network certainly gave you and Bob
more time and emphasis on this special, which I thank God for. I
like your style and approach to this ministry more than Bob Larson's. I
believe that Larson would do far better to work through local churches in a
given city versus his "seminar" format, which kind of gives a
huckster feel to a legitimate ministry.
I believe that
Bob Larson is a gifted, sincere and faithful brother. I just wish he were not
in a fundraiser mode "while" ministering. I believe God would be
better served and better glorified. Feel free to pass these thoughts along to
him if so led (so as I am not criticizing a brother's work behind his back).
Perhaps someday, there
or wherever God plants my family in ministry, I will bring you, Tom, in
to minister to the demonized in our area. God bless your walk and your work.
I agree to some degree of what you had spoke about
throughout the show. Just had a problem with the demon possession part of
it. I believe, yes people can become possessed, but feel that most of what
you deal with is not actually possession. I believe that they are just
simply strongholds on a persons life that needs to be totally given over to
Christ, they are not demons themselves attached within the souls of individuals.
Such as the women you preformed, what was suppose to be an exorcism. She
had a stronghold of depression but had given her life to Christ, once this
happened a demon was not going to enter into her body. She just did not
fully understand how to claim the blood over these strongholds. I
sure hope she is being taught this. [Editor's Note: The woman who was
set free is still doing fine, and has not taken any anti-depressants since her
Perhaps my understanding of possession is somewhat different. I liked
the way the catholic priest had put it on the show, they made sense. Don't
get me wrong, I am not knocking your beliefs, maybe I just need to be more
I wish you wasn't on with Bob Larson, he didn't make what you was trying to
get across to individuals look very good. How can someone charge to perform
exorcisms? Christ did not charge and it is only by His blood that these people
are being set free. This part of the show sickened me!
It's always exciting to see Christian truths being
displayed on secular TV, especially controversial aspects such as exorcism and
tongues. Jesus' healings and casting out evil spirits was a public
spectacle the likes of which mankind has never seen, so it seems appropriate for
present-day Christians to do the same. For those of us who feel it
shouldn't be a public spectacle, we should consider the spectacle Jesus made.
One thing, though. It's of great concern when Christians charge admission
for performing services for the Body of Christ which are expected by Christ to
be done out of obedience and love. Mr. Larson may be a very skilled and
devoted exorcist who is motivated by love, but the admission fees that are
being charged for his ministry services are anything but appropriate. Between
the admission fees, the fees (or expected donations) required from his helpers,
and his focus on book sales, it did come across rather strongly that Mr. Larson
may be motivated by more than love.
My wife and I watched the program on exorcism. Christ centered ministry is
the need of the hour! You lifted up Christ. You had an obvious love and
compassion for the people, so needed. You quoted scripture and used the name of
Jesus. Thank you for "trashing" exorcism rituals in favor of Biblical
deliverance. I am surprised the media gave you as fair a treatment as they did.
My soul was blessed by the program.
Also, I've respected Bob Larson's ministry for many years.

Tonight I was watching television and I got a glimpse of your ministry. I was
very excited to watch as you participated in spiritual warfare. The Lord has
been teaching me much in this area and there is so much to learn.
I watched the program and was very much in agreement with you and Bob Larson.
Being raised Church of God since being saved 19 years ago, we were taught that
Christians could not be taken control of. Since then I have come to believe
through my own experience that they can through certain things we go through
enter and take control in some ways. I guess I speak of depression which I have
struggled with for years. I am currently reading a book by Derek Prince called
They Shall Expel Demons which says basically what you and Bob Larson said on the
program. We have forgot about this vital part of ministering to people. People
need set free.
