Robertson: Sharon Stroke is Wrath of God

Leave a Comment
Pat Robertson suggested that Israel's Prime Minister's stroke was the wrath of God for him "dividing God's land." Is there a rock that this man can climb under since anyone with a first year Bible school education knows that Gaza was never part of the "promised" land for Israel.
I like to give people the benefit of doubt, but Robertson in the past 7 months has called for the assassination of a world leader, cursed a small PA town, and now is this. What makes this bad is that he does it in the name of a supposed "loving" God. His idea of a loving God is one that does what he wants and curses those he disagrees with. But is that what the Bible says? No!!!
Robertson, a failed Presidential candidate runs a show in Virgina Beach called the 700 club. "The 700 Club television program is an outgrowth of a 1963 telethon in which founder Pat Robertson asked 700 viewers to join the “700 Club” by pledging $10 a month, money needed to meet CBN’s monthly budget." This is a practice that is still used today.
In this rant agains Sharon, Robertson said, "You read the Bible and he says `This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, `No, this is mine.'" I would have to ask for chapter and verse on that since there was no Prime Minister (title)in the Bible.
He goes on to say that Sharon "was dividing God's land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU (European Union), the United Nations, or the United States of America."
Robertson even referred to the 1995 assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who had sought to achieve peace by giving land to the Palestinians. "It was a terrible thing that happened, but nevertheless he was dead," he said.
Robertson spokeswoman Angell Watts said of critics who challenged his remarks, "What they're basically saying is, `How dare Pat Robertson quote the Bible?'"
The problem is that he is not quoting the Bible, but his opinion of what he thinks he says. Why not ask Israel since the main part was directed to them and not to an American millionaire, such as he is.
I am all for free speech, but there has to be an end to the mean spirited curses this man utters in the name of God. He does not speak for God, but for his own agenda.
