Yup, he got boring and predictable.
Case in point, his recent Constant Contact /blog" entry:

The guy above looks like an expert. He's got the lab coat, the Einsteinian hair, and he's teaching at a chalkboard. Is he? He's actually an actor portraying an expert. Beware so-called experts. The dictionary says that an expert is a person with "special skill or knowledge in some particular field, a specialist; an authority." Which brings me to an article I read this past week by a nationally-known, well-respected Christian pastor. I know this man personally. He's a good man and has done great things for the Lord, in his areas of gifting. But for some reason he decided to weigh in on the topic of spiritual warfare and demons.
Much of what he said was excellent, and I agreed with 90% of what he said. But that 10% or so veered into an area in which he is not an expert. This successful pastor declared, "In 25 years of ministry I have only encountered five people who needed some kind of exorcism." He went on to say that any casting out of demons should always be done in a "private setting." So much for our nearly 8 million YouTube viewers who have been exposed to the gospel and power of Christ in scores of nations worldwide.
I have high regard for this man of God and thank the Lord for all the great places that his spiritual gifts have taken him. But I encounter more than 5 cases of exorcism on an average day, and 40,000 catalogued cases going back nearly 40 years, many hundreds of them documented on video, captured live and in action. Surely he can't dismiss all of that summarily with his "expertise." Christians in places of responsible leadership need to be cautious about using their spiritual gifts in those areas where they are NOT an expert. This pastor in question (and he's not alone in this regard) has been used of the Lord to build thriving churches where thousands attend, something I haven't been called to do. I don't tell him how to grow a local congregation. He's the expert at that. I wish that he, and others like him, would back off a little from offering their "expert" advice in areas about which they have little, if any, experience. Leave the credibility and necessity of deliverance and exorcism to those of us who are God-called experts, by Spirit-led experience and the grace of our common Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

An encouraging word: HE IS COMING
"Behold, He is coming!" That opening statement of Revelation 1:7 sums up what we need to know about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. There is much speculation among well-meaning Christians about when and how that will happen. Some have divided into so-called Pre-Trib, Mid-Trib, and Post-Trib factions, depending on when they believe the rapture will take place. Some say it will be before the Millennium and some after. But whichever group you are part of theologically, one thing is certain. He is coming! In the words of the Nicene Creed "He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end." Amen.
Okay, now that we have that nonsense posted, here is my response.
As usual for Larson, when he is dissing or commenting on a particular web page reference, he "coincidentally" neglects to add the link to the web site.
Here is the web page he " forgot" to specify.
Charisma News is a Christian magazine of the Pentecostal/ Charismatic sect, an area of Christianity Larson currently is exploiting for fame and profit.
Frankly I think McExorcist was upset that the magazine didn't interview him for the story. Larson was a few weeks earlier all happy that a Washington newspaper " reporter" interviewed him regarding one Presidential candidate calling another evil or a devil. It wouldn't surprise me that after Bobbie was on his ego high, he started Googling anything on exorcism published recently and found this article. Too bad his name doesn't come up in the Google news feeds any more ( hee hee).
Or, should I say, opinion piece, as the web link clearly marks it that way.
If you read the column and ignore for the moment the Christian " spiritual warfare" bullshit, the reason why Larson reacted negatively to this web page should be fairly obvious. The author of this, Jentenzen Franklin, in a roundabout way, cautions against the type of so- called "exorcism" Larson uses.
Note what Larson decides to quote. The guy's claim of being in exorcism for 25 years.
And OC he titles his response as a " warning" against " exorcism experts". Irony noted.
Sometimes he makes it way too easy for me to criticize his crap.I honestly don't think I need to say much on this one because the errors and his motives are pretty obvious.
I wouldn't be surprised to find out that all this time when he started his " real exorcist" exploitation her's been (ahem) " borrowing" his material from other " deliverance" ministry sources.
For example, he popped in the Jezebel spirit crap only a few years ago. When he was doing his " live on the air" "exorcisms" of callers on his radio show, I never heard him mention Jezebel spirit.
"His" current book, printed by the only Christian press that will still deal with him ( and they are a vanity press) is called " Dealing With Demons", a different book that he claimed he was writing earlier this year about his version of the prosperity gospel. So I don't think his criticism of this opinion column was a coincidence. Maybe a little damage control if his followers realize his current book claiming to, among other things, interrogate demons, might be, oh I dunno, false unbiblical teachings. Might hurt his sales to his suckers.
