At one point in Jesus Camp, Fisher brings in Lou Engle to talk to the kids about ending abortion. This was my first introduction to Engle, and seeing him whip the children into a religious frenzy was disturbing.
Although the Kids on Fire summer camp has since shut down, Fisher still preaches to kids. This YouTube video shows Fisher preaching to Children in Singapore about performing the same miracles that Jesus did. Fisher asks children to pretend that they are dead, then asks other kids to lay hands on the "dead" children and pray for them to return to life.
At the 5:45 mark, after two play-resurrections, Fisher tells the young audience that other children have raised their pets from the dead.
"Do you see how easy that is? How many think you can do that? Isn't that easy? Can I tell you a secret? Don't laugh if I tell you this. You promise not to laugh? I know some kids that have prayed for their dead animals, and they came back to life again. Now not after they've been dead for ten years and in the ground, but after they just died, and they weren't breathing anymore, they laid hands on them and prayed for them, and called them back to life, and they came back to life. God can do anything. Say God can do anything. [Children repeat] God is all-powerful. [Children repeat] And God wants to use me. [Children repeat] And I can do the same miracles Jesus did." [Children repeat]This is NOT healthy. Telling impressionable children that they can raise the dead only sets them up for disappointment and heartache later, when they find themselves unable to resurrect loved ones. Playing resurrection games sends a morbid message to children, and it certainly won't help them make sense of death.
Becky Fisher, sadly, has changed little from her Kids on Fire days. This video suggests that she continues to indoctrinate kids in Singapore, just as she did in the U.S.
