Scam Everlasting: After 25 Years, Debunked Faith Healer Still Preaching Debt Relief

If you’ve ever channel surfed late into the night, you’ve probably seen Peter Popoff. He’s a televangelist who looks the part, with hair the color of black shoe polish, teeth as white as light bulbs, and a voice that manages to be screeching, nasal and guttural at the same time.

“God is touching hurting people around the world,” Popoff says in a recent video on his website, sitting in a wingback chair beside his wife, Elizabeth. “It’s always such a joy to share the reality of that joy. It’s a joy to share the reality of his saving power, healing power, delivery power, and … debt cancelling power! Amen!”

Popoff has been a preacher for more than three decades. While the specifics change over time, Popoff’s basic message remains largely the same: that God wants us to be affluent and debt-free, and that Popoff is a prophet sent by God to help people transform their lives from poverty to affluence.

“Debt cancellation is part of God’s plan,” Popoff says in the video posted to his website, as a little dog sleeps in his lap. “That’s why God sent me to you. How would you ever know about miraculous debt cancellation, erasure of your debts if someone didn’t tell you about it?”

Another thing that remains consistent: Multiple times throughout his career, Popoff has been exposed as a fraud. The first big revelation happened on the Johnny Carson show in 1986, where the magician James Randi played secret audiotapes revealing Popoff’s scam as a faith healer. Before every revival event Popoff led, Popoff’s staff and his wife Elizabeth would interview audience members about their health problems, and they would collect prayer cards from the audience. As Peter worked the room, his wife would point out vulnerable people for him to approach, and tell him about their physical ailments, via a small radio receiver stuck in Popoff’s ear.

Not long after that show aired, Popoff declared bankruptcy. But the setback proved temporary. Popoff started over, and by 2005 his “ministry” was earning more than $24 million a year.


Secret Footage of "Faith Healer" Peter Popoff


If anything about Popoff is truly miraculous, it’s his resilience. No matter how many times his claims are debunked, he seems to bounce back with another version of the same old scam. Popoff has promised to cancel peoples’ debts using holy water and blessed oil. He has claimed to be a prophet who can heal peoples’ illnesses by slapping them on the head. He promises to use God’s power to help people become rich.

These claims have been exposed as falsehoods many times. After the Johnny Carson debacle, Popoff has been tailed by everyone from Inside Edition to local TV news stations from Los Angeles to Atlanta. After each investigation, Popoff seems to bounce back, launching new crusades and finding new victims.

“We’ve done so many stories about him, but it never does any good,” says Ole Anthony, founder of Trinity Foundation, which has investigated Popoff and other faith healers since 1987. “His scams are endless.” called and emailed Peter Popoff Ministries numerous times, but received no response. So we decided to run a little test ourselves. In the process we discovered that much of what Popoff does is carried out through the mail. Click here for the reference.

Peter Popoff EXPOSED!

Peter Popoff is a false prophet!!! His website is at Peter Popoff promotes his Miracle Water. Sadly, many people have fallen victim to this blatant scam. Popoff's TV show uses lures of a better job, better health, and more money to sucker people into sending him a donation.

It is tragic that greedy men stoop so low as to exploit the name of Jesus, but this is what Peter Popoff, Don Stewart, Mike Murdock, Benny Hinn, Pat Robertson, Robert Tilton, James Robison, and others are doing. Read what the Word of God warns us concern these evil men...

"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.2 Peter 2:1-3 (KJV)

Matthew 7:22-23 reveals that many false prophets do exploit the NAME of Jesus...

"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."

These false prophets did all that they did IN JESUS' NAME; YET, they went to Hellfire, because they didn't do the WILL OF GOD concerning salvation. Ye must be born again! All we hear from greedy televangelists today is promises of health, wealth, and prosperity if we'll just send in a donation, plant a financial seed in their ministry, or buy something from them. It was this very same shenanigans that angered the Lord in John 2:14-16...

"And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise."

Christianity began as a new birth in the Lord Jesus Christ. When it went to Greece it became a philosophy. When Christianity went to Rome it became an organization. When it spread throughout Europe it became a culture. And when Christianity came to America it became a business. This is so tragic! Whether it be Mike Murdock begging for a $58 "uncommon seed," or Peter Popoff begging for people to purchase his Miracle Water, God condemns turning Christianity into a business.

Peter Popoff also speaks in demonic Charismatic tongues, making a mockery of God's power through fraudulent healing services. In these services people fall back onto the floor, jumping up and down like idiots. Popoff's greatly promotes his Miracle Spring Water, promising special healing and blessings to those who purchase and drink it. Of course, this is of the Devil. Watching a Peter Popoff crusade is similar to watching a freak game show. The music is ridiculous. I've said it before and I'll say it again?why don't these Charismatic healers restore any amputees? It's because they can't. The alleged healings are always limited to unseen illnesses. The truth is that NONE of those fakes can heal anyone!

One theme is repeated over and over by the lying televangelists?money, money, money. It's all about money to them. If you're stupid, or just plain ignorant, you'll send them money. Please do not send them any money.

Peter Popoff is an imposter, who ought to be ashamed of himself for exploiting the name of Jesus to make money. Click here for the reference.
