Televangelist Pat Robertson on Thursday told an 80-year-old viewer, who gave more than 10 percent to the church, that she should get a job or sell stuff on eBay if she couldn’t afford her medical bills.
“My husband and I are in our 80s and have been tithing for many years,” the viewer wrote Robertson in a letter. “We both love the Lord and give willingly and our tithe is over 10 percent.”
The woman said that she thanked God for her blessings, “but we never have an extra penny after our monthly bills are paid.”
“Our old car just broke down and we had to borrow money to fix it,” she continued. “We both need dental work, but we can’t afford it. I constantly have to use our credit card to pay for medical needs… What could we be doing wrong?”
Robertson recommended that the viewer “ask God to show you some ways of making money.”
“There are many ways of making money, even at 80 years old,” he explained. “You know, you can get on the telephone, people are hiring. There are all kinds of things you can do. For example, you may have a bunch of junk lying around in your garage that you can sell on eBay, and get some money that way.”
“There are many, many ways of making money,” the TV preacher continued. “And you’re looking at the downside of all the bills you’ve got instead of saying, ‘God, I’ve been faithful to you. Now, I claim my blessing, and I ask you to open the windows of heaven and pour me out a blessing. Show me what you’re going to do, show me how I can move into blessing.’ So, just ask him.”

WATCH: Don Lemon blasts Trump — and explains why nobody wants to hear from him on George Floyd’s murder
CNN anchor Don Lemon slammed U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald for invoking President Donald Trump on Thursday.
“I know she has a tough job, but guess what, as long as we are being honest right now, nobody wants to hear from the White House or the attorney general right now,” Lemon said. “No one wants to hear from the man who wanted the death penalty to come back for the Central Park Five.”
“No one wants to hear from the man who says that the former president was not born in this country. No one wants to hear from the man who said there are ‘very fine people on both sides.’ Do you understand what I am saying?” he asked.
CNN’s Don Lemon demands ‘urgency’ of justice for George Floyd: ‘How much more video do they need?’
On CNN Thursday, host Don Lemon made a furious call for justice in the George Floyd case.
"How much more video do they need? I kept saying, is this some sort of a joke?" said Lemon. "Great, get more evidence. But from the evidence they have, there appears to be no area on tape anywhere, from any witness, that Mr. Floyd was resisting arrest in any way. So people want to know, these officers, one of them with 18 complaints against them, I think 16 still open, another one that had 6. I know people complain and it's false sometimes, but 18 complaints. Are they going to be arrested or are they not? Is the justice system going to work with these officers the way it works with the general public?"
Fox News host: Trump’s order against social media is based on ‘an outright lie’
On Fox News Thursday, host Neil Cavuto laid into President Donald Trump for his executive order punishing social media companies for perceived "bias" against him.
"The president is saying that some of their liability protections should be waived when they do things that are not fair, in this case, to some things that he has said on Twitter," said Cavuto. "What was shocking in those comments, he was open to shutting down Twitter — whatever your opinions, on the left or right, a huge social networking site, the largest on the planet — and that since it was fact-checking him, that's good enough to crack down and maybe look at shutting down Twitter."
