Evangelist Oral Roberts Dies at 91

TULSA, Okla. (Dec. 15) -- Oral Roberts, the evangelist who rose from humble tent revivals to found a multimillion-dollar ministry and a university bearing his name, died Tuesday. He was 91.

Roberts died of complications from pneumonia in Newport Beach, Calif., according to his spokesman, A. Larry Ross. The evangelist was hospitalized after a fall on Saturday. He had survived two heart attacks in the 1990s and a broken hip in 2006.

Roberts was a pioneer on two fronts: He helped bring spirit-filled charismatic Christianity into the mainstream, and he took his trademark revivals to television, a new frontier for religion.

Roberts overcame tuberculosis at age 17, and he credited that triumph with leading him to become one of the country's most famous ministers.

it's about time. He was just another religious a##hole that preyed (not prayed) on people's misfortune & longing for his own profit (not prophet). If God was real he would have killed him long ago, like when he was claiming God was going to call him home if he didn't raise 8 million dollars. Hopefully he's burning in Hell where he belongs, but I doubt it.

There's no conclusive proof of that.
