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.

Republican analyst says Trump is ‘threatened by’ being challenged by women: ‘It hurts his ego’
According to one Republican commentator, President Donald Trump's decision to lash out at four Congresswomen of color stems from his inability to handle being challenged by women.
In a segment with MSNBC host Ali Velshi, Rina Shah, who runs Republican Women for Progress, said that she's been the target of racist attacks from Trump supporters ever since she announced she wouldn't support him.
"I believe that what this president is doing is fanning the flames," she said. "He cannot denounce white supremacy, white nationalism. This is a moment in which he could have kept his mouth shut. You know, this tit-for-tat with [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi (D-CA) and 'The Squad,' he didn’t need to engage in it. If I was advising the president, if I were one of his advisers, I would have said stay out of it. But he doesn't listen to anyone around him."
Shep Smith goes off on Trump’s racist attacks: ‘A misleading and xenophobic eruption of distraction and division’
Fox News newsman Shep Smith began his Monday show by calling President Donald Trump's racist comments about four congresswomen of color "xenophobic" and a "distraction" for the purpose of "division."
"Our reporting begins with President Trump’s latest misleading and xenophobic eruption of distraction and division," Smith opened with. "Directed this time at a group of minority women in the United States Congress. 'Go back to where you came from,' that is what the president wrote on Twitter just yesterday and today he called them haters of America and Jews. The president is defending those statements and when asked if he thought the tweets might be racist, his response, 'Not at all.'"
Even neo-Nazis think Trump’s racism ‘goes too far sometimes’: Investigative reporter
An investigative reporter that has embedded with neo-Nazis and Klan members explained Monday that President Donald Trump’s language echoes what these far-right groups have been saying for years.
In an MSNBC panel discussion, Vegas Tenold explained that when Trump says things like this it's almost expected at this point because he's been saying racist things since the birther campaign.
"He’s a racist; we have known for a long time that he is a racist," Tenold said. "'Go back to where you came from,' it’s peak racism, it’s, you know, the original form of racism. He’s been on this thing for a long time."
