Evangelical faith healer Andrew Wommack warned women this week that they could have a miscarriage if they failed to obey God’s rules about being too emotional.
On the Wednesday edition of the Gospel Truth TV program, Wommack cautioned that psychology was in direct opposition to God’s teachings.
“They are dealing with things from only a physical, natural, humanistic standpoint,” he explained. “This is one of the reasons that people’s emotions are so messed up today is because instead of approaching it from God’s standpoint, where it says control your emotions, don’t let your heart be troubled, rejoice in the Lord always.”
According to Wommack, emotions were like a horse because “once you ever let a horse just go and get a full head of steam, the best thing for you to do is jump off.”
“Most people will get down and wallow in the unbelief and in the fear and all of this and they let things be conceived on the inside of them that they never intend to act out.”
The faith healer added: “Well, you’re either going to have to have a miscarriage or an abortion along the way. And neither one of those things are desirable. This is not the way God wants us to live.”
Wommack reminded his audience that Jesus ordered his followers to “be of good cheer.”
“That’s a command,” he insisted.

Carl Bernstein: There are 7-9 ‘wobbly’ Republicans who want witnesses but Mitch McConnell is trying to block them
In a CNN panel discussion Wednesday, notorious Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein revealed that there are seven to nine Republican senators who are wavering after the compelling argument that the House has provided for the impeachment. The problem, however, is that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is refusing to allow any break from the party line.
"I think this is a hugely damaging narrative that was laid out today, and that Mitch McConnell understands, and has understood for a while that this hugely damaging narrative was going to affect his members," said Bernstein. "And that his strategy -- I've talked to some Republicans about this -- #MidnightMitch is to wear out his own members so that they don't vote for more witnesses because there are six, seven, eight, nine wobbly Republicans."
Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial
Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.
The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.
"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"
Conservative says Republicans won’t want to stop confirming right-wing judges just to hear witnesses in impeachment
Conservative CNN commentator Scott Jennings was asked about Sen. John Kennedy's (R-LA) comments that most senators were hearing the facts of the trial for the first time Wednesday night.
“I’ve learned a lot. Everybody has. Senators didn’t know the case,” Kennedy admitted. “They really didn’t.”
He claimed that nine out of ten senators learned something new and the tenth is lying.
Jennings dismissed the information, saying that whatever happens in the trial, senators won't want to "shut down the Senate" just to hear witnesses. He claimed that President Donald Trump's legal team would make that argument to the senators.
