NBC News Report Looks Back at the Life of Oral Roberts - Video 12/15/09

Here is a look back at the life of Pentecostal Evangelist Oral Roberts. He died yesterday at the age of 91.

Roberts came out of the charismatic, faith-healing stream of Christianity. His views were very controversial, and never represented the views of mainstream, evangelical Christian belief.

Roberts claimed to be able to heal people, and really made his name with tent revivals in which he would lay his hands on people, and pray for them to be healed.

As this video shows, he even claimed to have been able to raise the dead, something most Christians believe that only Jesus Christ and the prophets or apostles ever did.
