Pat Robertson, Still Lacking Self-Awareness, Calls Disaster Prophecies 'Nutty' and 'From the Pit of Hell'
Last month, televangelist Pat Robertson admonished viewers to beware false prophets… despite his own terrible track record of predicting events. Today, Robertson received a question from a 700 Club viewer who wondered about people in her church who “speak in tongues and prophesy to people in the congregation about accidents in their future or some great sorrow in their lives” as a result of the “great judgment” of God.
Robertson answered that such works come “from the pit of Hell” and claimed that these people are trying to “dominate other people and so they do it, like, ‘I’ve got a word of God from you.’” He later added that “predictive prophecy about disaster is almost always something from the psychic world, it’s not something from God” and called the prophets “nutty.”
But maybe these self-proclaimed prophets are just taking a cue from Robertson himself. Robertson has made plenty of disaster prophecies, including predicting that a tsunami would hit the Pacific Northwest in 2006 and declaring that God told him that terrorist attacks in 2007 would claim millions of lives, just to name a few.
