Bible prophecy is confusing. It’s full of metaphors, symbols, unclear time periods, literal impossibilities and conflicting information. So it’s understandable if someone has a question on the end times or the Great Tribulation. It’s a fascinating question, but if there’s one thing Pat Robertson gets right on The 700 Club, it’s the idea to be careful that we don’t get fixated on a hypothetical end of the world, and keep our focus on the present that we’re living in.
What is God’s real name? The names of God are many in the Bible and understanding what we know of the answer isn’t nearly as easy as The 700 Club makes it seem. Is it Yahweh, Elohim, YHWH or El? Something else entirely? Why is the Scripture so confusing? If you want to see Pat Robertson’s simple answer, the question begins at 2:15. If you’re ready for a deeper dive into the merging of language, history and religion, read on.
There’s a lot of misinformation being passed around about immigration these days, and, unfortunately, Pat Robertson is only contributing to it. Hopefully we can cut through some of these falsehoods as I try to tackle why it’s so hard to deal with immigrants with compassion, even for Christians who know exactly what the Bible says about the issue. Click below and jump to the 1 minute mark if you’d like to hear what The 700 Club has to say, despite Robertson’s claim to “love Hispanic people.”
According to Pat Robertson, asking how civilization arose from Adam and Eve is an amusing “no brainer.” But wondering about the things like their nationality or how civilization arose from them isn’t really something to laugh at, as it’s perfectly valid. The story of all of mankind and human history coming from Adam and Eve is confusing because it’s just, well, so implausible.
