Pat Robertson's Network Responds About PNAC
This is what my pal sent them:

"UN and PNAC World Government

I've been hearing a lot about the UN and world government being
something
we need to watch about when the end times come. The problem is your
program seems to ignore Project for a New American Century(PNAC). This
think tank composed of members that are currently in our government is
essentially a plan for world dominance. This is their site:
http://home.earthlink.net/~platter/neo-conservatism/pna...

Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz are the ones who are
responsible for these plans."

This is their response:

"We appreciate the comments and suggestions that people share with us.
Their thoughts and feelings about the ministry, about world events and
other people, or about their own personal experiences, all these things
are important to us. Positive or negative, they provide us with
valuable insight into the hearts and needs of those we serve, as well as the
effectiveness of the work we do for the Lord here at CBN.

CBN has a commitment to see that the "Gospel of the Kingdom will be
preached unto all nations . . ." (Matthew 24:14). In achieving this
mission, we strive to glorify our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ our Lord
and Savior. Our goal is to spread truth and love, and the message of
salvation throughout a desperately hurting world.

Please pray the Lord will grant us wisdom and understanding as we seek
His holy will. May God bless you and keep you in His love.

The 700 Club Prayer Counseling Center - 1-800-759-0700"


After he got this he sent this response:

"The problem is just because you "liberate" a country doesn't necessarily mean you're going to preach the gospel to them and that the leaders within government wish to do so. The Bible talks about a WORLD GOVERNMENT which could either be the UN or this plan orchestrated by PNAC. The Bible teaches of deception and the perception that what this WORLD GOVERNMENT is doing is for the greater good. However, it's all a deception according to Revelations. Teaching the gospel and taking over countries for dominance are two completely separate things."

If you'd like to send them some information about this PNAC stuff:

1. BTW, That's Not PNAC's Site
Don't know how he got that idea. That's a site that talks about the controversy over PNAC.

3. It's sort of old news around here
We've been talking about the PNAC for several years.

BTW, here's another apparent offshoot of the PNAC, the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya. Get a load of their membership list:

4. Yeah, It's Been Around For Awhile But Now CBN Agrees With It
I find it pretty weird that these Christians are going to completely ignore the Bible and say that world domination is the right way to go. It's pretty scary when you think about it.

5. While they 'believe' in the Book of Revelations...
...they seem to be unaware of what part they are playing in it...




ps. for the record, I think Revelations is a bunch of bunk.

6. Frankly, I think the whole book is a bunch of bunk
And it terrifies me that there are people who want to run government and set policy according to it. If given enough rope, they would re-write the Constitution to fit Biblical pronouncements and we would be a fundamentalist state just like the Muslim states that we are told are so evil.

And they don't see the irony in that.

7. Even If You Don't Believe It You Could Still Use It
I personally am a Christian. However, I believe in separation of Church and State. If Christians take a good look at PNAC they may change their mind about Bush's policies. That is unless they believe these CBN people who think "spreading God's word" is taking over countries by force.

8. I do use it
Right now it's under a table leg in my kitchen where the floor is a little off level.

I'm not anti-religion - I respect other people's beliefs, whether Christian or Jew or pagan or atheist or any other spiritual belief. But I think basing a government on ANY one belief is dangerous.

I also read the Bible. I was kidding about the table leg. I read it and other sacred texts and I try to learn as much as I can about all the different belief patterns. A person's spiritual belief is very important to them and a major part of who they are.

My personal belief just happens to be that there is no one right answer and that no one will ever truly know the answers to the questions that religions are based on (where do we come from? where do we go when we die?) until we DO die. I think there is likely a grain of truth in all of them and the rest is speculation, hope, misinterpreted natural events and the ravings of lunatics that were seen as prophets.
