Tyler Johnson will raise your loved ones from the dead

 

According to this website, if you’ve recently lost a loved one, Tyler Johnson and his team can and will visit the funeral home, morgue, or family’s home and raise the recently deceased from the dead. So far, they’ve allegedly raised eleven people.

Dead

 

 

 

 

 

The “dead raising team” was founded by a young man named Tyler Johnson. Evidently, after his father died, Tyler had some sort of “experience.”

Tyler wanted to see others spared of the pain his own heart went through that morning that he held his own father in his arms as he died. Tyler’s hatred for death is not just theological, but closely linked to his own experience.

This led Tyler to fling himself into praying for the dead whenever he got the chance. Soon others heard about this, especially after resurrections began to take place, and began to join him. After some time, the Lord released Tyler to travel and train others in the revelation of Christ: The One that is Abundant Life.

OK. Death is, sadly, a part of life. I always figure every day I feel good is a good thing. However, I know I’ll eventually die. I’m fine with that. Heck, even if I weren’t fine with it, how could I stop it? Oh wait. We’ve got these guys:

Dead raising is for every believer, not a select few. In fact, in order for the dead to be raised on a consistent basis, there needs to be people that are ready to pray for resurrection in different geolographical locations across the globe….

The trumpet has sounded. If you desire to pray to raise the dead, contact us. DRTs are popping up all over. Where ever we go, we hear the same proclamation ringing out from the heart of the people of God, “We will not stand for our loved ones and those in our city to be taken by the enemy!”

Well. I’m rather speechless. I thought death was a normal, yet very sad, part of life. Now it’s some sort of enemy that the average person, excuse me, I should have said “believer,” or perhaps, “true believer” can avoid.

You can get specialized training in raising the dead.

You can like them on Facebook.  Tyler Johnson has a page, too.

I’d be inclined to think of this as a poe, except the BBC has covered this phenomena as well.

Tyler Johnson runs a ministry called the Dead Raising Team in the US. He claims to have brought several people back to life. He says he even persuaded the authorities in his state to issue him with an official photocard which lets him through police lines at car accident sites.

Sadly, Johnson will not provide any documentation to support his claim that he’s raised ten corpses back to life.

Last, but not least, we have this: An upcoming documentary detailing Johnson’s dealings with the dead. The Kickstarter Campaign blasted through his 20k budget by providing over double those funds. So, Deadraiser, the Movie  is a go. Here’s the trailer:

As of today, you can pick up a copy for a “Premiere License for Public Screening” for only $250. I don’t know how much the actual DVD/Blueray will run.

If that’s too spendy, you can always pick up this little gem for only $14.99. (Hey, maybe she was one of the folks raised from the dead. She appears to have been partially decapitated.)

Now…  so many questions… so many questions.

1. How does this work? How much does it cost? What about the people who have this done, but it doesn’t work (I’d assume there would be a LOT of people in this category). I caught the whole “What if they don’t want to come back” disclaimer in the above vid, but seriously… they’re selling a big promise. I can’t possibly see how they’d deliver.

2. Do you think it’s just a tiny bit cruel to visit the hospital room of the dying and make them think they’ll rise from the dead?

3. How would a typical family react to this? Would/could they sue for product non-delivery? Would any attorney actually take on a case like this? What kind of insurance do they have? How would you build a policy like that?

4. How on earth did they raise so much money for that film? Do people actually believe you can raise someone from the dead?

5. How did they get so many Facebook likes? Again… don’t people utilize their BS alarm? Granted, some of the Facebook comments are rather amusing.

6. Once someone is “raised” (assuming it can be done), are we talking about a zombie situation? What about brain death? What happens to the tumors, damaged heart… the reason they died in the first place?

Sigh.

It’s one thing to fleece people who don’t know better. It’s quite another to take advantage of families when they’re at their most vulnerable. I can’t believe anything like this exists.

Please. Someone tell me this is an elaborate hoax.

    I join you in hoping that this is entire thing is a joke of some sort.

      No doubt. Sheesh.

    Gee, I think I’ll get in touch with Johnson so he can resurrect John and George and we can have a real Beatles reunion. Their next album could be Returning From Zombie Land with
    John reworking I Am The Walrus to I Am The Zombie. I wonder if Paul and Ringo know about this, I’ll email them. (Yes, I have their personal email addresses, but I promised not to share.)

      I’d be first in line to purchase that album. I fully support your plan. :)
