You may not know – or be able to pronounce – the name Michael Guglielmucci. No takers? Well, if you are a fan of Hillsongs and Vineyard Worship, you should be familiar with the song, “Healer”.
Shoot, I sang that with tears welling up in church a few weeks ago. That song is great. It’s anointed. It’s blessed. It’s so full of passion. IT’S SOOOOOOOOOOO FAKE, according to this story in Australia’s Adelaide Now.
For a refresher, the video is below. For more evidence about what kind of a tool Guglielmucci really is – and it’s important to the integrity of this story – pay close attention to :31 on the time bar. G’head, I’ll wait…
Vodpod videos no longer available.
You see, this majestic and sacrosanct song was written out of the anguish of a cancer victim. Yeah, Guglielmucci. Well, for two years, HE FAKED IT! See the oxygen tube in his face? He performed this with bible in-hand, worship in-mind and deception in-heart. Amazing.
Does no one have fear of the Lord anymore?! You realize if it weren’t for Jesus, this [enter your own expletive here if you must] would be fertilizing daffodils with the quickness? That’s some dangerous holy ground he wanted to trod, and apparently he did it alone.
Edge Church International’s executive pastor Jonathan Fontanarosa said Mr Guglielmucci had “made it clear that he is not sick”… “But we’re waiting on further investigation to find out the full truth,” he said. “The church is in shock, we were totally unaware of the situation … It also said Mr Guglielmucci’s wife and family were unaware of the deception.”
Oh yeah, his own family founded the church where he sang this. Um, a regretful MEMO to this fraud’s family: If someone you love has “an aggressive form of cancer” and you don’t see any major problems other than the supposed whooping cough, take some time out and go to the friggin’ doctor with him!
So, as the PK, Guglielmucci had an instant audience to tell about his unfortunate ‘ailment’. And boy did he, as the prayers… and the cash… began to pour in. The story doesn’t say what led to him admitting the whole thing was a sham, but I would like to think God finally said, “When.”
Now the local police are investigating the church’s assets to see what cars, women and drugs he bought… er, how he spent the money he was given by believers around the world that was touched by his story and this song.
Man, there is a special, balmy place in hell for this dude. Michael Guglielmucci, I hope you truly believe the words to that anthem you penned because only Jesus can ‘heal’ this mess before the deceiver comes to collect his rewards. Next time, just pray. It worked for my mother who actually had cancer, you twit!
