Richard Bartholemew has the gory details. Read the whole- it truly is a parade example of a blind pseudo theologian leading a blind Hagee to a ditch. I especially liked this bit.
In a rare acknowledgement of the need for accuracy, WND points out that “there were no blood moons in 1948… The blood moons tetrad confirmed by NASA’s website took place in 1949.” I’ll add that while NASA’s website has statistical data on lunar eclipses, I’m willing to take a bet that there has never been any statement relating to “the history of Israel”.
Because I’m guessing that you don’t. Because the fact is, NO ONE KNOWS the answer to such a question but God and he doesn’t tell us lowly mortals. So if your article doesn’t consist of the very concise sentence ‘no one knows’ in answer to your question, you’re wrong.
Please stop publishing theological stuff aimed only at provoking ‘discussions’ of issues for which no discussion is meaningful. Stick with infotainment and Ariana rants of praise for lord Obama. That’s where your writers shine. That and cat memes. Stay with what you know. Leave theology to the theologians. Or you’ll need to rename your website ‘The Evans-ian Post…’
Have publishers now come to the place where they have to invent non-existent theological debates in order to peddle their latest tome? Aren’t there already enough real and pressing theological issues to write about?
Has anyone, anywhere, at any time, ever heard someone say ‘I think the Gospel must be a factory that makes useful and uniform disciples from a supply of raw souls’? Ever? Anyone? Anywhere?
And what’s a raw soul? Sigh.
News outlets and websites and tv channels are only talking about the Bible because it’s almost #Easter and they only #WantToCashInOnChristianity.
Make no mistake: they have no interest at all if their interest is part-time except in making a quick buck off gullible Christianity. They also have no interest in the facts. In fact, the more sensational and idiotic the claim or portrayal, the better the networks, websites and news outlets like it. Nonsense sells. That’s the bottom line.
If you really want to put an end to all the misrepresentation and misprision, don’t shop anywhere that advertises on one of the aforementioned specials and write the news network, tv channel, or website that features them to express your disdain.
Just so you know, it’s not ‘Revelations’… It’s Revelation. Apparently NT Wright isn’t sure of the title of the book. In this video, at 4:23, he calls the Book of Revelation the “Book of Revelations”. How sad. F-
