A ChristianPost.com article reports that two large and influential Baptist churches have special sermons planned for September 11th, the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States. “One sermon promises to discuss America’s ‘inevitable collapse’ while the other is to be delivered by Dr. Tim LaHaye, known for his popular end-times book series [Left Behind]. . . . First Baptist Church of Dallas has released a video [‘Twilight’s Last Gleaming’] promoting a new sermon series beginning Sept. 11 that discusses America’s ‘inevitable collapse.’”
Take note of the phrase “inevitable collapse.” For years I have been arguing that prophetic beliefs, good and bad, have consequences. I pointed this out to Brannon Howse of Worldview Weekend. Here’s some of what I wrote to him because of his preoccupation with end-time speculative prophecy while claiming to teach young people about a Christian worldview:
Are you going to be a worldview ministry or an end-time ministry? You criticized John MacArthur about not caring about the election, and here you go dealing with end-time nonsense. You’re creating doublemindedness with your WV attendees. What are you training them for if it’s all a prophetic inevitability?
