Kathie Lee Gifford Says Westerners Are ‘Way Too Terrified’ of Gifts of the Spirit

by | Jan 8, 2022 | Culture

Legendary talk show host Kathie Lee Gifford responded to Christians who deny or ignore the biblical “gifts of the Spirit,” telling Life Today host Sheila Walsh far too many Westerners are needlessly “terrified” of them.

Gifford said there’s “so much misunderstanding” of the gifts of the Spirit and there shouldn’t be so much “mystery surrounding” the biblical concept.

“Once you understand—you meet the people that have these gifts, and you see the way that they use them for the kingdom of God, any bias you have about it is dispelled,” she said. “Because you see what’s done in the name of the Lord Jesus.”

Gifford continued, “You cannot say, ‘This is not God.’ This is redemption, this is healing … and nobody’s getting the credit for it but Almighty God.”

The former Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee host went on to say she believes “Westerners have been way too terrified of the gifts of the Spirit —and for far too long.” She implored Christians to look at what Scripture—and, in particular, the apostle Paul—has to say on the matter.

“We’re all supposed to have gifts of the Spirit. They’re supposed to be different, used like different parts of the body for one good work, but we’re all supposed to use them,” Gifford said. “And people go, ‘Oh, Jesus doesn’t do that anymore; God doesn’t do that anymore.’ Really?”
