The Decomplicator: False Prophet

  1. 1. At a Republican fundraising event earlier this week, actor Jon Voight said, “Let’s bring an end to this false prophet, Obama.”
  2. 2. Are false prophets so bad they must have an end brought unto them? According to the bible, yes. Deuteronomy commands us to “purge the evil from among you.”
  3. 3. That’s because a prophet is someone who speaks the will of God. But whether someone talks to God can be hard to verify, so the risk of false prophecy is always there.
  4. 4. The book of Revelations says a False Prophet will arise at the end of days, so you can see why calling the president a false prophet makes some people a little jumpy.
  5. 5. One man’s false prophet is another man’s prophet. Take Joseph Smith, for example.
  6. 6. Smith claims the word of God was revealed to him on golden tablets he found buried in upstate New York. For thirteen million Mormons, that’s all they need to know.
  7. 7. So, is President Obama a False Prophet? According to Revelations, the False Prophet will not regard “the desire of women.” Hence, he’s probably out of the woods.
  8. 8. And after his D.C. speech, Jon Voight did Bill O’Reilly’s show.
  9. 9. Which means when it comes to false prophets, he may not be the best judge.
