Pat Robertson Puts It In His Mouth--Again

There comes a time in every man’s life when he should hang up the reins and call it a day. Pat Robertson is perhaps one of the best known Christian broadcasters of all time and until the past several years, he had pretty well maintained both his credibility and integrity. Neither is very easy in our day of incessant scrutiny. But starting a few years ago, Robertson began coming out with some off the wall stuff like bogus predictions and asserting that God gave Ariel Sharon his stroke for having ceded land to the Palestinians. Then he made headlines again advocating the assassination of Hugo Chavez.

When President Bush ran for reelection in 2004, this prophet wannabe said God told him that Bush would easily win reelection. We know how that turned out…

Well apparently being wrong and making a mockery of God in the process does nothing to sway guys like this because he’s done it again.

Apparently Robertson said on the 700 Club that at a recent prayer retreat God told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would result in "mass killing" late in 2007. "I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," said Robertson, "The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that." Robertson went on to add that it should happen sometime after September.

Why do these guys insist on disparaging the gospel of Christ by making themselves look like idiots not to mention anyone else who claims allegiance to Christ? Do they think the ridicule they receive is “blessed persecution?” Jesus said, you are blessed when men speak evil of you falsely. You’re not blessed when men call a spade, a spade.

So C’mon Pat. Some of us out here in Christendom are trying to convince people of the integrity of the faith and of God’s Word. And it’s really tough when you bozo’s, who have the means to touch millions of people, say dumb things in the name of God.

The prophets of the Bible must have met the challenge of 100% accuracy or they paid for their error with their lives. You don’t go telling people “God told you…” and then when you’re wrong, dismiss it by saying, “Sometimes I miss.” You might, but God doesn’t. So enough Pat. It’s time to call it a day.
