Another year, another Pat Robertson ‘prophecy’

Mr. Robertson sure has a flair for the dramatic. I don’t know if he fashions himself a modern day Jeremiah (perhaps Isaiah) but he does like making his predictions. This year it’s a terrorist attack on U.S. soil resulting in many deaths. He claims these predictions are from God and they very well might be except for one thing: they don’t come true.
Example: After the tsunami that rocked Southeast Asia, Pat predicted (b/c God told him of course) that a similar calamity would strike the US coastline in 2006. Well it didn’t happen, so either God didn’t tell Robertson anything, Robertson misunderstood what God said, or God lied. Well we know that God doesn’t lie (In the words of the Apostle Paul, “let God be found true, though every man a liar”), so therefore Pat is a false prophet and not to be taken seriously.
We could have a terrorist attack in the U.S. this year who knows? It’s not a crazy notion given the current world situation. Would Pat have predicted this pre-9/11? Probably not.
