So you’re being “prophetic”, eh?
You may have noticed that when some liberal churchpeople explain their support of gay marriage and the like (or gloat in their victories), they like to say they are being “prophetic.”
Such is nothing new. I remember when mainliners supported the Soviet Union’s agenda in the name of being “prophetic.”
I’ve always found it the height of arrogance for them to claim so that God is behind their political actions, particularly when most of them hardly believe in God nor honor the authority of His word. They cast aside much of the prophesy of the Bible, but they are being “prophetic.” Uh-huh.
Well, I tell you what. If they want to say they are being prophetic, let them go ahead. But let them be reminded that there are some strong words for false prophets:
But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has counseled rebellion against the LORD your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you.
Now we are not under that law today. But I don’t think God’s attitudes towards false prophets have changed, either.
And after watching the mainliners for years, I think I understand why.
