Pat Robertson is at it again

Robertson, speaking to a co-host, told her that he “spent the better part of a week in prayer and saying ‘God, show me something.’” Apparently, this method of prayer worked, because “He showed me about the next President, but I’m not supposed to talk about that, so I’ll leave you in the dark.”

No offense was intended towards Pat Robertson.

As to Old Testament prophets, their job description, given by their employer God, is...

"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him." Deut 18:18-22.

And while I fully agree that we could certainly use a couple of true Old Testament prophets, the New Testament prophets' job description includes...

"But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort." 1 Cor 14:3. For in the New Testament church, the primary job, responsibility or concern is that we..."...seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church". 1 Cor. 14:3.

So foretelling the future, as a prophet of God, is pretty much out of vogue as of this past 2,000 years or so.

As to holding back, or sealing away that which is shown or revealed, we have a perfect New Testament example of that with Revelation and, "...when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not" Rev 10:4.

So, if the prophet seals up his revelation because he's afraid he'll be proven false, that's one thing...but if he seals it up at the direction of God, well, that's another story. And in that vein, wouldn't God be better advised (as if we could advise God) to withhold the revelation from the prophet, than to trust a man of the flesh to keep his big mouth shut? Prophet or not, Pat Robertson or not?

Just for the fun of it, mark all this down and look back at it again on December 22, 2012, and see how many 'prophets' of the Mayan doom and the destruction of this earth and life as we know it, were right.

On the other hand, I won't be waiting to see if it's the truth or not. I already don't believe them.

But that's just me.

Good shootin' Ya'll,

Shotgun Bill

Robertson Admits he Blew Election Prediction he Received from God | Right Wing Watch

In January, televangelist Pat Robertson told 700 Club viewers that in his annual New Year’s “conversation” with God, the Almighty had revealed to him who the next president would be. Up through Election Day, Robertson harshly criticized President Obama and the Democratic Party while praising Mitt Romney. Then, Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network predicted a GOP sweep, leaving Robertson utterly confounded by Obama’s victory.

Today, responding to a question from a viewer who wondered why her business is struggling since she thought God told her it would be successful, Robertson admitted that he sometimes misses God’s message. “So many of us miss God, I won’t get into great detail about elections but I sure did miss it, I thought I heard from God, I thought I had heard clearly from God, what happened?” Robertson replied, “You ask God, how did I miss it? Well, we all do and I have a lot of practice.”

Your doubling down on your original idiotic statement says a lot about you, woodstock.

Pat Robertson is a false prophet, and has been for some time.

My original statement was that Pat Robertson was about as looney as you are freesw. What exactly does that say about me other than the fact that I don't suffer fools.

Give the old man a break. I think senility is setting in. Someone close to him needs to let him know its time to leave the stage.

Talking Here's what I think !

Few folks realize that our native indians still believe in slavery after the civil war had ended and thus through false heathen faith , lack of superior firerpower and their lack of not believing that all folks here in the good old USA are free , had to be converted to the correct type of thinking !

Bad leadership skills also hurt the native Americans and lack of staying on top of weapon improvement hurt them also , as did resistance to some deceases , besides not being able to resupply themselves and doing naughty things to god-fearing good America folks such as slavery and other stuff !

They would pay the price for their misfortune , but end up getting many government handouts from the god-fearing religious victors of those wars , that would cause them to become lazy as hell later on , thus causing them to be their own worst enemy !

Today they have become rich owning many gambling casinos , because we cut them some slack in our laws . As they are sharing their wealth among their people and living the American dream, when they aren't ram-sacking their own government built free homes and downing liquor like there's no tomorrow .

If you believe this , than you are right on !
