False Prophets: Nothing about Trump came true last time, and nothing will this time, either.

https://signalpress.blogspot.com/2023/06/false-prophets-nothing-about-trump-came.html

Pat Robertson claimed that God told him Trump would win in 2020, without a doubt. He explained his error away by following the "election was stolen" line, saying that Trump really did win but Satan got in there and messed it up. That's a great way to avoid accountability, since Deuteronomy 18:22 says, "If a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, but the thing does not take place or prove true, it is a word that the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuosly; do not be frightened by it." [NRSV]

What is actually happening here is that these Charismatic, Pentecostal and Evangelical "pseudo-prophets" know they are phonies and frauds, and this is about money. They don't believe in the power of God to do anything they claim, they always depend on the money they rake in to give them the appearance of power and of God's blessing on them, and they see supporting Trump as a way to buy into the power of politics to do what they claim God wants to do. I doubt that any of these people believe in God. Political power is a sure thing, once in their hands, a means by which to keep the dollars flowing in and to protect them from any real accountability. And like Trump, their organizations are a miasma of immorality and corruption.

A letter writer to the Los Angeles Times, back in 1987, said that these prophecies not coming true, being made by Charismatic, Pentecostal and Evangelical "prophets" have "raped the minds of millions of people with their fear and guilt-producing authoritarian mind set." In using that term, how appropriate, that Trump is now the subject of their false prophetic utterances.

1. Can't disagree with this.

These scammers have been around since the first tent revivals and earliest medicine shows.
Ultimately itís all about the money. Trump fits right in with this group. He is nothing but a crook and a conman.

3. His own "spiritual advisor"

is a con artist, a prosperity gospel "prophetess" named Paula White, who also misses the mark on accuracy but has become a master at manipulating words so that she doesn't take accountability for her lies.

Fits right in with the orange headed buffoon.
