Fortuneteller or Prophet?
Pat Robertson predicts that a massive terrorist attack will happen to the USA in 2007 according to an article in CNN.Com. The article goes on to tell of Robertson’s other predictions and interesting statements. For example, Robertson saying that God punished Ariel Sharon with a stroke for giving some of the land to the Palistinians. Robertson also predicted that bush would easily win re-election. Robertson says that he has a relatively good track record, but sometimes he misses.
As Preachers we are called to be prophets to stand up for the weak and the disenherited to tell the powerful of God’s requirements on them. In short we are to speak forth the word of God. Robertson seems to be moving towards fortunetelling rather than being the prophet that God has called us all to be.
