Oral Roberts is one of the first American television evangelists and is often ridiculed in many circles due to his outrageous claims and failed prophecies. In the last few years, he has experienced at least 2 heart attacks, undergone heart surgery and now suffers from other health issues. It is surprising that he has lasted this long, but at 87 years old and in failing health he could be meeting his maker soon.

Let's hope he and his fellow self-appointed members of God's ground crew follow John Paul II's splendid example.

Apparently you can give too much oral.

He may very well follow in the steps of Lord Callaghan and die within days of his wife.

Two weeks. Dead wife and broken hip = broken heart + heart condition x the mean rate of inflation in the Pacific Rim - the number of apostles at the last supper + the number of pages in the bible to a factor of 3 / the number of days in creation = April 14.
