Pat Robertson is Predicitng the Future: Believe it or Not - Actually Believe It and Wish it Wasn't True
Am I the only one that finds Pat Robertson to be a complete evangelical embarrassment? Somebody needs to explain to him the meaning of silence is golden. The real problem is most people create an identity for Christians based on what they see on TV - and unfortunately Pat gets a lot of air play. My prediction for 2008 is there will be a lot of Christian's explaing away Pat Robertson.
Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson, who has made predicting the future an annual tradition, predicts a recession and a major stock market upheaval are on their way for the United States.
Aside from a recession this year, Robertson suggested Wednesday that Americans will be paying much more for gas at the pump as the price of a barrel of oil rises by 50 percent in the coming months.
Specifically, he said oil would reach $150 a barrel - the price hit $100 on Wednesday - with the dollar continuing to lose value in 2008.
"I also believe the Lord was saying by 2009, maybe 2010, there's going to be a major stock market crash," said Robertson, who is a millionaire businessman as well as an evangelical leader.
But don't unload your portfolio just yet. Robertson acknowledged Wednesday that his prophecy of a nuclear terror attack in 2007 failed to unfold.
He also cited information from God when he predicted on a year go that major U.S. cities would be hit by "very serious terrorist attacks" causing "possibly millions" of deaths.
No such catastrophe occurred.
Robertson also implied that God informed him whom voters will elect president in November.
