There's A LOT of fakery in new charismatic churches today.
There has been for a long time, (since the 70's)
I don't know who she is, but, I've seen a bunch in my day.
The bible says to watch out for lying signs and wonders.
I've also had the real Holy Spirit.

Sorry, I don't recognize her either. Maybe she's on TBN or one of the other religious cable networks. I've known people who spoke in tongues and have seen them do it at times. I don't think they were fakes exactly; I think they sincerely believed they were communicating a spiritual experience. It just seemed like maybe they were deluded or just swept up by their own performance. As far as spiritual healing goes, I've known a lot of people who believe they've had one and some of them are normally down-to-earth and credible, so I can't say for sure that they don't happen. I don't trust the people who do it on tv though.
