Pat Robertson lied about hearing God's voice when he said God told him Romney would win by a landslide. Here is what the Bible says about false prophets.
The Nelsons Bible dictionary:
FALSE PROPHETS - those who falsely claim to utter revelations that come from God, to foretell future events, or to have Gods power to produce miracles, signs, and wonders. In the Bible, false prophets fell into three general categories: (1) those who worshiped false gods and served idols; (2) those who falsely claimed to receive messages from the Lord; and (3) those who wandered from the truth and ceased to be true prophets.
A recurring characteristic of the false prophets is that they often are found in the employment of the powerful and that they are careful to speak pleasing, positive, and flattering words to their employers. Jeremiah condemned the false prophets who were always saying, "Peace, peace!" when there was no peace (Jer.:6:14; 8:11). The false prophets preached a popular but false message: there would be victory against Babylon (Jer. 28:1-17). Jeremiah said, "The prophets prophesy falsely . . . and My people love to have it so" (Jer.:5:31). Even though Jeremiah was a true prophet of the Lord, the false prophets were rewarded by the king and Jeremiah was cast into a dungeon (Jer.:38:6).In the New Testament, Jesus said, "Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets" (Luke:6:26). He warned his disciples to beware of false prophets "who come . . . in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves" (Matt.:7:15). When speaking of the signs of the times and the end of the age, He also said, "Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. For false christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect" (Matt. 24:11, 24).
It seems to me the party as a majority, has forgotten Who God is and Who they are to serve. They offered up a Mormon as the presidential candidate of their party and want to seem as if they follow God's word. The founder of the Mormon religion was a false prophet and the Republican/GOP party tried to make it as an acceptable part of Christianity. Yet the party doesn't look at what it has done wrong, they blame the people who rejected their evil offering and actually voted for a Christian in President Obama.
After having lost because of their lies and the unhealthiness of their parties plans the more radical ones started talking about secession. They thought they had a right to make the country into what they wanted even though the people voted against their insanity. But these people think the wealthy should be able to bribe the leaders and the voters in to doing what they want done, iinstead of receiving the righteous judgement voted upon by the people. They think they should be able to rule over people based upon their skin color or origin of country.
23 "You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. 2 You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice. 3 You shall not show partiality to a poor man in his dispute. 4 "If you meet your enemy's ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again. 5 If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying under its burden, and you would refrain from helping it, you shall surely help him with it. 6 "You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor in his dispute. 7 Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the innocent and righteous. For I will not justify the wicked. 8 And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the discerning and perverts the words of the righteous. 9 "Also you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heart of a stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
Truly the foolishness of the GOP/TP'ers is being shown to them by He Who is in charge. They have tried to justify the wicked, those who oppress women and strangers, those who think their wealth makes them our rulers and a god over us. I believe God is trying to show them that He is merciful to those who want mercy, and wants people to come to Him for His Way. He has surely shown that the lies practiced by the GOP/TP'ers are not acceptable to Him. Yet they want to deny it, because they continue to listen to their gods, mammon and conservatism as if they can be delivered from God's power by their false beliefs.
Wisdom is something they lack as far as understanding the Way of God. They may understand greed, the accumulation of wealth, as being a sign of God's blessing, instead of a test to see what man or woman really loves more God or the things that perish.
From the Nelson Bible Dictionary.
WISDOM). ability to judge correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding. The apostle Paul declared that the message of the cross is foolishness to the Greeks and a stumbling block to the Jews. But to those who believe, said Paul, this foolishness of God is the wisdom of God (1 Cor.:1:18Against the wisdom of God Paul contrasted the wisdom of this world (1 Cor.:1:20; 3:19), human wisdom (1 Cor. 2:4), the wisdom of men (1 Cor.:2:5), the wisdom of this age (1 Cor. 2:6), and mans wisdom (1 Cor.:2:13).The biblical concept of wisdom, therefore, is quite different from the classical view of wisdom, which sought through philosophy and human rational thought to determine the mysteries of existence and the universe. The first principle of biblical wisdom is that people should humble themselves before God in reverence and worship, obedient to His commands. This idea is found especially in the Wisdom Literature: the books of Job, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes.In the Old Testament, the best example of a wise man is King Solomon (1 Kin.:10:4, 68; 2 Chr.:1:7). And yet the same book that heaps such lavish, warm, and glowing praise upon Solomon for his reputed wisdom (1 Kin.:4:29) also points out how Solomons heart turned away from the Lord (1 Kin.:11:1).
You see I take no long term joy in the misery of the GOP/TP followers who continue to wander around lost while thinking they have the Way. Oh sure, I'm human and I do enjoy them being shown they are wrong. But it doesn't last and they don't see it. It is not to beat them up and make them seem foolish that I write these articles. They do those things all by themselves, I simply point out the error in their ways hoping they will finally see it and ask God to help them.
Yes I can become obnoxious at times. Not because I enjoy it, those who truly know me, know that in my heart I prefer to be at peace. I become obnoxious because the GOP/TP'ers try to lead people away from Him to their conservatism as if that can save anyone !!!
Jesus Christ is the Savior, not any political, or religion. Religion and politics lead people away from Him and to the ways of man.
Just the way I see it.
