For years now, I’ve been warning you that false prophets disguised as angels of light have invaded and taken over the church in the form of televangelists and megachurch ‘pastors’ and now the church is finally starting to wake up – or so I hope.
It isn’t really a new message. Paul, not the nicest guy in the New Testament, warned you about false prophets disguised as angels of light (2 Cor 11:13,14). What did you expect, hmm? Did you think they would come to your church and say, “hi, I’m a false prophet. Let me deceive you.” No, they come and say, “The Lord has spoken to me..” ..and you listened.
But now some evangelicals are starting to listen to my words and the warnings of the New Testament. Just this past week, evangelical religious leaders rebuked Pat Robertson for damaging the Christian movement. Of course, he isn’t the only one at war with the true faith: Jerry Falwell and James Dobson also hold the title of being part of the unholy false trinity. But they have plenty of help from megachurch pastors who use brainwashing instead of the gospel to manipulate their followers into becoming Pharisees instead of Christians.
It is somewhat heartening to see a few evangelicals speaking out, but it’s an hour late and a dollar short as far as I’m concerned. These guys left me alone out there to sound the warning – for YEARS. Now they’re finally saying “oh yeah, I guess we should say something about that.” Thanks a lot, ‘pastors.’
From the article above, Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s ethics and religious liberty commission, has said he was “stunned and appalled that Pat Robertson would claim to know the mind of God concerning whether particular tragic events … were the judgments of God.”
Yes, what have -I- been saying all this time, huh? Nice of you to finally wake up, though. But Pat isn’t the only one, as I have said. Several other televangelists and megachurch ‘pastors’ use this same technique of predicting the PAST and purporting to speak for God.
Of course, for Rick Warren, Robertson, Falwell and Dobson there is no such thing as bad news. These cynical master manipulators of the faithful simply use criticism to “prove” they are being persecuted because they “speak for God.”
Also from the above cited article: Brian Britt, director of the Religious Studies Program at Virginia Tech, said Robertson’s remarks aren’t just “off-the-wall, crazy uncle stuff” but part of a strategy that earns him headlines. When people attack Robertson, he wins sympathy for appearing to be an underdog, Britt said. “It reinforces an image of Christianity as a persecuted religion, a religion that is being hounded by the secularists out of the public square, rather than a dominant and (psychologically controlling) force.”
It’s a no-lose situation for the false prophets, and they will continue to mislead the more gullible among those of faith.. sadly. I know I can’t stop their evil ways, but I will continue to do my best to try to hold back the tide of Pharisaic legalism and the coming human sacrifice cult that it will engender.
But I want to thank those few evangelicals who have decided to join the fight, however late. I can use all the help I can get.Tags: Bible, Christianity, Religion, Spirituality
