Pat Robertson: Jesus said an asteroid could destroy Earth next week

By David Edwards
Monday, April 21, 2014 11:48 EDT

Televangelist Pat Robertson warned on Monday that Jesus had said that an asteroid would destroy the Earth — and it could happen as soon as next week.

On Tuesday, three former NASA astronauts are expected to present their findings that the Earth had experienced far more impacts from large asteroids than previously thought.

For Robertson, the news was just the latest reason to hype his book, The End of the Age, which asserts that the End Times predicted in Revelation will be brought on by a meteor.

“I wrote a book!” Robertson advised viewers. “It deals with an asteroid hitting the Earth. I don’t see anything else that fulfills the prophetic words of Jesus Christ other than an asteroid strike.”

“There isn’t anything that will cause the seas to roil, that will, you know, cause the skies to darken, the moon and the sun not to give their light, the nations terrified on Earth of what’s happening. There isn’t anything that’s going to do that.”

He continued: “We’re big enough to draw some of them in. And as somebody said, it’s ‘blind luck.’ Well, it’s the mercy of the Lord. But if that mercy ever got lifted, whew.”

Robertson advised his viewers to “read what Jesus said” about “nobody living on the face of the Earth.”

“That’s what Jesus himself said!” he advised. “So, hey, just get ready. Get right. And stay right with the Lord.”

“It could be next week, it could be 1,000 years from now. But nevertheless, we want to be ready whenever the Lord says, ‘I’m wrapping it up, and it’s time to come home.’”

1. I heard that Jesus is going to throw an asteroid at Pat Robertson.

So get as far away from him as possible.

4. Some loving god you've got there, Pat.

Who would worship the omnipotent psychopathic asshole of a deity that these people believe in?

10. So when the earth is destroyed what happens to

the rest of the universe? Earth is just one sphere where there are trillions more.
Does our bible rule the universe too ?
Isn't it a bit of conceit to think god just gives a shit about earth and gave earth his best writings and the rest of the universe got left out?
I really can't take the bible seriously for that reason

14. The myopia of Bible believers is truly astounding.

In a universe that is multi-billions of years old and contains multi-billions of galaxies, let alone planets, on a planet that is about six billion years old, they think the omnipotent ruler and creator of the entire universe is focusing on the last 2,000 years on this one little planet and that "his" "son" was one representative of a primate species that has been around for about 200,000 years.

The egocentrism of humans is truly breathtaking.

16. And I wonder why this isn't discussed much?

I guess it would be too "earth shaking"

17. I wonder that too.

But I do think this "pulling back the curtain" on Earth-centrism is one big factor behind the fundy poutrage about Cosmos.

11. Oh, yeah...don't forget to donate to the 700 Club, too.

Just in case, you know, that there's some delay in the asteroid that will send everyone to meet Jesus. Pat Roberson's still gotta eat, you know. And, if you donate today, he'll pray for you. Really he will. We promise.

when it doesn't happen he'll say he prayed that it wouldn't and it worked.

13. those voices, not Jesus but maybe schizophrenia. Might go get your head checked out

I miss the days when we institutionalized those who said the voices told them to run for President or that god hated _____ or that the end of the world was nigh. Now they are worshiped and paid by their legion who believe their nonsense.

22. At Robertson's age (84) it's probably the onset of dementia,

not schizophrenia. Then again, Robertson's always been demented.

15. Well this is the second sane thing Robertson has

said recently. The first was calling Ham out on his ridiculous YEC. The second is that a significant asteroid impact is a very real possibility at some future point. It is also a threat that we can do something about. Of course such actions are in conflict with Robertson's apocalyptic vision of divine will.

20. "could" = Covering his ass regardless of what happens

One of those shitheads that will praise the lord for sparing his home from a tornado, but that the very same lord "works in mysterious ways" when it flattens the house next to his.
