I am somewhat amused by some of the severe criticism of me from the waning and almost obsolete anti-Christian, aggressive secular humanist group in Norway, connected to the Norwegian Humanist Association. They are being pumped on a daily basis by their former leader (1976-1990), Levi Fragell, the 77 year old backslidden pentecostal preacher boy who almost 55 years ago left his father Øyvind Fragell´s vibrant faith to instead live a life committed to oppose great men of God such as the evangelists Aril Edvardsen and Emanuel Minos, and for the past 6 1/2 years against me. His warm-hearted preacher father cried in despair when I interviewed him as a young journalist in the mid-1970´s. RIP, Øyvind Fragell!
Levi Fragell´s rage has been so massive that he even followed Aril Edvardsen on a crusade in India, just to prove that the great evangelist was a fraud!
His rage against me has increased, almost feverishly, as he has seen the blessing that God has heaped upon Aina & me during the past 6 1/2 years. In 2011, Levi Fragell demanded triumphantly in the secular-Christian newspaper Vårt Land that I had to resign as a pastor! Instead, God has promoted us in Norway and worldwide. My tv programs are supported and watched by the high and low in our nation. I am summoned into meetings with leaders of Norway, Europe, and beyond.
The most interesting thing about this Fragell-based criticism is that it attacks classic Christianity, both catholic, orthodox, protestant, evangelical, and charismatic-pentecostal: 1) The Bible as the authoritative Word of God. 2) Jesus as the only Way to God. 3) Conversion unto Christ. 4) The two outcomes of life: Heaven or hell. 5) The reality of angels and demons. 6) Healing of the sick. 7) Speaking in tongues. 8) Ministry unto children. 9) The gospel as an integral part of a Christian home. Etc, etc, etc.
The bottom line for the aging Fragell is his hatred of God. I participated in a meeting with him earlier this year in Oslo, and there he denied that he had ever said he hates God. But afterwards he had to admit it, because it is written explicitly in his autobiography from 2010.
I hope and pray that Levi Fragell will find peace at this late stage in his life.
