Get Your Blood of Jesus Oil

Get Your Blood of Jesus Oil August 19, 2012

I used to be on the mailing list of Peter Popoff, the faith-healing con man exposed by James Randi in the mid-80s. One of his gimmicks, which he still uses, is to send you a vial of holy water, allegedly from the Jordan river. Here’s a very similar scam — blood of Jesus oil.

This little fraud is brought to you by Woody Martin, pastor of Victory Temple Church in Lenoir City, Tennessee. And here’s the fine print:

This is regular olive oil which represents the Holy Spirit and a special coloring to make it look red thus we call it “The Blood of Jesus Anointing Oil.” There is no virtue or healing in this oil, it is a point-of-contact and an act-of-faith.

Hell, then you could just use some cherry coke to do the same thing, right? Or nothing at all. You don’t need to pour a liquid on yourself to have faith, right? Or you could just stop peddling bullshit to your ignorant followers.
