Alan, true, i ghot confused by Sharon's stroke and what Pat said about Rabin some years ago. some people are just bad weather forecaster. I think Robertson desires so much for the return that he sees a new chance in every crisis. problem is that many take his words as prophecy. he should really be more carefull. still his programm questions ansd answerrs is good bible founded.

Andy ... I think you have the wrong man.

It was Rabin who was assassinated

Sharon, however i do not agree with what he did, was killed by a fundamentalist jew who would not even think twice to kill Pat Robertson just because he's a Christian. That would also be God's judgement. many things are not the judgigement of God, just consequene of a world in total corruption.

If this is true then this round of talks with barack obama and Israel new president
Benjamin Netanyahu will cause somewthing to happen look obama has already showed his hand that he's going to force his will and make Israel bow to obama plan and divide the land so expect something devastating
to happen (if this is real) I recall Mr Bush sr his house was destroyed in kennebunkport when trying to divide the land.

Pat Robertson has often "read omens" from disasters and declared that they indicate divine punishment against this or that group that he disagrees with.

However, when Jesus was confronted with the same kind of thinking (for example, with the poeple that were crushed when the Tower of Siloam fell), he said that they were no greater sinners than anyone else. (Luke 13:1-5)

Another "open mouth, insert foot" for Pat.

Remember how Arafat died? The same way.. Only God knows..I do know that we are on the eve of destruction.

Pat nor I can speak for God ... when the Roadmap for Peace came along I knew the only time there would be peace is when the antichrist signs a seven-year treaty. Now, that Sharon has fallen ill, that Roadmap to Peace has been nipped in the bud. Could this possibly open the door for the antichrist to show his face?

Only God knows the answer to this statement or question. I believe that Pat Roberton was wrong in saying what he did. We are not to waste time with such matters only witnessing and bringing others to God for we know not how long we have on this earth till Jesus' return.

Pat Robertson Is closer to being right this time than when he called for the murder of a nation's leader. And the bible does say woe to those that try to divide the land. How then does this country stand in this matter, since Mr. Bush is pushing Isreal in a direction that will divide the land?
---mima on 1/6/06

And to think that Pat Robertson could have been our President! I don't think we can say for sure whether Sharon is being punished for his past actions. I think it is better not to guess on these matters and to make sure we are right with the Lord. P.

Len k, other way round, he condemned Dover Pa for rejecting intelligent design in favour of only evolution.

Lev 25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine. Dt 11:12 A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it. Eze 48:29 This is the land which ye shall divide by lot unto the tribes of Israel for inheritance. Giving away the inheritance that God told you to keep is sin. Col 3:25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

"You will know them by their fruits". All one needs to do is to Google "Pat Robertson's name. You will get 794 hits. A Christian should be open minded to look at all of the evidence. Is Pat Robertson a "false teacher and false prophet". The evidence is clear in my mind!
---Mike on 1/6/06

Why must every bad thing that happens be attributed to God punishing someone. He already did all of the "punishing" on the cross. Jesus bore ALL of his wrath concerning our sin. We should pray for Sharon, that he would come to a saving knowledge of Jesus - not self-righteously spout about his sin. At the foot of the cross, we are all the same.

We all deserve God's judgement, but its only because of Jesus Christ that we are free from his wrath. I don't think anyone fully understands the mind of God and they shouldn't presume to know why He does what He does.
---jodha on 1/6/06

Sharon had no other options if he were to maintain a permanent state of Israel. The Palestinians are reproducing at much higher rates than the Israelis so that in a single state they would be in the majority. He for once is acting for peace. His detractors are advocating more hate and war. Not very Christian. Pat is a fanatic endorsing assasinations. Beware of zealots.
---Al on 1/6/06

Pat Robertson. Was he the one who said Telletibbies were evil? Did he condemn Dover Pa. for not accept intelligent design in the schools? Does he know the mind of God? I more wonder about the intelligence of the people who send money to keep this guy on the air.

I watched that broadcast and am not suprised at the storm it has created. All I can say is that God does not take kindly any action that is fraglantly against a covenant he made with his people.
---pkay on 1/6/06

I didn't see the broadcast so don't know exactly what Pat Robertson said but there certainly is a biblical warning about not dividing the land. Whether God has punished in this way we cannot possibly say. Many people have strokes, and many suffer disasters of one kind and another. It is not for us to say whether these are punishments or whether they would have happened anyway but we should take notice of what the bible says.
---M.P. on 1/6/06

I agree with Pat Robertson that this very well can be judgment for giving away land that wasn't his to give away. And more judgment is virtually assured against men and nations.

Do you think that it is just coincidence Katrina pounded the US when it supported the the evacuation of Jews from Israel? Now something bad has happened to Sharon.
