The techniques were probably learned in the gospel tents.

This reminds me of those "healing" evangelists whose entire work was orchestrated just like this. I believe there are ministries that do heal by the power of the Lord Jesus Christ but there are always the charlatans.

It seems to me that the charlatans have been coaching Obama and Hillary Clinton. It is almost an American institution, the mass meeting held with the purpose of fleecing the flock. P.T. Barnum is famous for his saying that: "No one ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the American people". The same could be said for any other people, just think of the Germans in the 1930's.

Lest we imagine we are immune we just have to recall our own times of being misled and gullible. It is very much a human trait that has been exploited by rulers at all times in history.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
