Bonnke on 700 Club with Pat Robertson

Of Accident: 

Concerning (2), my
original article had a typographical error, where I once used “December
29th” (not “December 30th” as is reported in this chart)
instead of “November 29.” That error was corrected within a
few days of its original writing. The creator of this chart continues
to report a typographical error that has been corrected for well over
a year.

Regarding (3), the
article at CFAN does not state that Daniel had his accident or
that he died in the morning. It only states that Daniel was returning
from his father’s home in Owerri, where he had journeyed that morning,
when he had his accident.

dates mentioned – November 30 and December 30, 2001, in the evening

1, in the morning?, also morning in this
n/a n/a Not
To The Entire Story, Start To Finish
disharmony is proven here. Concerning (2), the bulk of my first article
was based on facts I learned in an interview with Ede Samuel, not
Daniel Eke. Again, the creator of this chart reports what is not true. Moreover,
I suspect that although Daniel was dead for two days, he has learned quite
a lot about what happened to his body during those two days. So his testimony
of what happened to his body while he was dead is worth something.
Ekechukwu, Daniel’s brother, related the story to Igwe

Nneka Ekechukwu after she arrived at first hospital, this interview was
with Daniel who was allegedly dead during two days of it

n/a n/a None mentioned
did Daniel take the trip?

I sincerely hope
that the creator of this chart doesn’t want us to think that, just because
Daniel’s reason for his trip is not mentioned in some reports, we have
reason to believe that contradicts other articles that do tell us the
reason for Daniel’s trip.

Concerning (6), the
creator of this chart sites a quotation found at the web site of a fellow
skeptic, and not from his stated source. That skeptic writes at his web

said on Hinn’s program: ‘On Friday the man, a pastor Daniel Ekechukwu,
wanted to bring a Christmas gift to his father. As he went down a steep
mountain his brakes went and failed.'”

The skeptic then
comments: “This implies he was on his way to his father’s house.”

It does?!! This shows
how far some skeptics stoop to deceive their readers, reporting as fact
what is not even implied.

Look at the harmony
in these seven reports!

Are we to disbelieve
this miracle occurred because I didn’t report (2) that Daniel hit his
head on the windscreen (British for “windshield”) and CFAN did
report it (3)?

Concerning (7), this
fact is not what was reported by Reinhard Bonnke or CFAN, but by
what Pat Robertson mistakenly said in his introductory remarks during
his interview with Reinhard Bonnke. Robertson then immediately asked Bonnke
an opening question about Daniel’s being embalmed, which Bonnke answered.
This again shows how far this skeptic stoops. As this fact is reported
at the chart found at the deceptioninthechurch web site, it is a deceptive.

Daniel and his wife were not happy that Daniel was dying and being treated
unsuccessfully in a Catholic hospital with “many icons,” according
to what they both told me in personal interviews. Both Daniel and his wife
agreed that he should be taken to Umezurike Hospital in Owerri where a doctor
practiced who had helped Daniel survive a life-threatening injury approximately
one year earlier. I personally interviewed that doctor at Umezurike hospital
(arriving unannounced), and he verified the facts of his treatment of Daniel,
saving his life at that time.

dead body was taken to three medical facilities in Owerri on the night on
November 30, 2001. First was Umezurike Hospital, also known as the Owerri
Regional Hospital. Next was the Federal Medical Center, and finally St.
Eunice’s Clinic. I personally visited all three, and they are in a close
proximity. The atheist (1) reports wrongly.

Concerning (1), Daniel’s
body was eventually taken to a mortuary. Both (2) and (3) are correct.
I didn’t report anything about Daniel’s uncle, feeling it to be unimportant.

I would hate to see
the creator of this chart construct a similar chart on the resurrection
of Jesus, using the four Gospels as his sources!

n/a n/a Not mentioned

Concerning (2), I
never interviewed Kingsley.

Concerning all the
rest, they are quite harmonious. Nneka was standing on certain scriptures
from the beginning, and also had her dream of Daniel. Nneka indeed did
believe that the anointing where Reinhard Bonnke would be preaching could
raise her husband’s body to life, just as the Shunamite woman believed
that if Elisha would come, her dead son would be brought back to life
(see 2 Kings 4:18-37), and just as the woman with the issue of blood believed
that if she touched the hem of Jesus’ garment, she would be healed (see
Mark 5:25-34). Or, just like all the people believed who took cloths and
handkerchiefs from Paul’s body to lay upon people who were sick or demon
possessed (see Acts 19:11-12). All those people were healed through an
anointing, given by God via a human.

Ekechukwu & Nneka Ekechukwu both had similar dreams
to take Daniel’s
body to Reinhard Bonnke
Ekechukwu had a dream,
no mention of Kingsley, Daniel tells her in her
dream he is not dead and to take him to Bonnke in Onitsha, also repeated
by Bonnke on Kenneth Copeland program 8/19/2002 where Dan Eke speaks to
his wife from the dead and says “Don’t allow me to be buried, I will rise.”
No dreams

because he would be around Bonnke’s great “anointing”, 
wife believed that she should bring Dan under Bonnke’s anointing

harmonious. Is the creator of this chart actually trying to disprove the
miracle of Daniel’s resurrection by showing us that an atheist reported
that Bonnke was visiting a church for prayers while CFAN reported that Bonnke
was speaking in Onitsha at a dedication ceremony? Both are the same.

Not mentioned

Concerning (1), this
is a falsehood by the creator of this chart. In the article being cited,
the atheist author didn’t even claim to have interviewed the mortician.
He only states that Kingsley told him the same thing that the mortician
told me when I interviewed him. The mortician told Kingsley that he was
prevented by some kind of strange power from completing the major part
of the embalming process. He also states that he asked Kingsley if Daniel’s
body was injected with embalming fluid, and that Kingsley said, “no!”
As I have stated in my report, Daniel’s body was only partially embalmed.
Either Kingsley didn’t know that, or he was affirming that Daniel’s body
had not been embalmed to any large degree, i.e., removing organs and pumping
his body with embalming fluid.

It is interesting
that the creator of this chart uses the atheist’s article to show discrepancies
in the story, but if you will take time to read that article, you will
see that the large majority of what the atheist reports harmonizes perfectly
with what the other reports say. See www.secularhumanism.org/library/aah/igwe_11_3.htm. This, again, is a deception at the “deceptioninthechurch” web

said he did not inject embalming fluid into Daniel

Harmonious. I (2) simply didn’t report it exactly as the atheist (1) did,
but all he states here is true. I questioned the mortician extensively about
the time Daniel’s body was in the mortuary. See my third article on the
resurrection of Daniel Ekechukwu.

was laid between two other corpses at the mortuary until Sunday morning,

perfect harmony! Daniel died on Friday evening of November 30, 2001, and
was resurrected in the afternoon on Sunday, December 2, 2001. Concerning
(5), Daniel was indeed in the mortuary Friday night, Saturday and Sunday.
The two pastors, quite likely, didn’t know the exact chronology anyway.

is not the same as the Lake of Fire. One day, hell will be cast into
the Lake of Fire. See my third article.

people screaming, weeping, eating their own

The Church
body was taken out of his coffin when it was taken into the church. Concerning
(3), what is reported here by the creator of this chart is false. The report
at the CFAN website does not say that Daniel rose from his coffin.
See www.cfan.org/{English}/[US_Site]/content.asp?id=0000184&page=04
No mention Body
was taken into the church “without the casket”

room, some believers prayer around Daniel’s body

in the church conference
center, several pastors began to pray
n/a n/a No mention

Other conflicting
coffin was brought into church (2)
three pastors lifted Dan from coffin and he started to breath 

Raising – where was Bonnke?

Concerning (4), it
should not be assumed (as Americans might) that the service would not
have continued after Bonnke left. Bonnke preached, prayed, and left. He
did not know that Daniel had been resurrected until he was long gone.
He certainly was not there when a woman’s husband ran to the altar. After
Daniel’s resurrection, as you can imagine, the church service continued
for a while.

Concerning (5),this
is a falsehood. I’ve watched the video produced by CFAN many times and
have never heard Bonnke state what is claimed here.

Concerning (7),
this is true. Bonnke was preaching in the sanctuary and people were praying
for Daniel in the basement. Bonnke and Ekechukwu had never met until after
Daniel’s resurrection.

No mention
of where Bonnke was
was preaching
at an afternoon church dedication service, he had nothing
to do with the miracle, wasn’t aware of the dead body in the basement of
the church
knew nothing about what was happening, was preaching and praying upstairs,
Bonnke immediately left to board a planned plane flight
the members of the church learned about Daniel’s resurerction…her husband
ran to the church altar to ask God to forgive him his sins (Bonnke would
have seen this),
keep in mind that Bonnke and Dan both fell into the
hole together in his vision, implying that Bonnke would raise him from the
dead and work with him
says he was upstairs praying in the name of Jesus,
Daniel gasped for
air, started to scream, his body was moving and breathing, Bonnke was
notified that Daniel started breathing
n/a Was preaching
and knew nothing about it – then later in the story says Dan was there in
the basement while he was  preaching upstairs “in the name of Jesus”
later he claims he did not know Daniel at all before this incident
