-Fact: The Media Likes to Make Christians and The Bible Look Crazy

by Dr. D ~ September 22nd, 2017

End of The World

From the Washington Post: The man whose biblical doomsday claim has some nervously eyeing Sept. 23

Response:

I didn’t plan on dignifying this ridiculous claim or give this nut additional publicity for his website and books. But since it is all over the Internet and it has been picked up by the major media including the Washington Post, USA Today, papers in the UK, and even Fox News. Here is my take:

Fact: The world is not ending tomorrow.

Fact: This prediction has nothing to do with the Bible or Christians.

Fact: Jesus said that he didn’t even know the day or the hour so what are the chances that this guy knows better? (Matt. 24:36)

Fact: The media likes to make Christians and the Bible look crazy. Otherwise how can you explain how this guy with absolutely no confirmed academic, scientific, or Christian credentials received any attention at all?

Fact: No Christian leader or real Bible scholar supports this claim. Quite the opposite. See:

No, the World Won’t End Next Week and There’s No Such Thing as a Christian Numerologist

Sorry to Tell You, But Jesus Is Not Returning on September 23

    I actually researched this guy yesterday (as an attorney, I have access to some research services. . . ) just for fun.

    And I found nothing! He claims to have graduated from a Kentucky school with a degree in astronomy. I cannot verify that. He has written a series of “conspiracy” and “prepper” books which are listed on Amazon. Basically, he is a ghost.

    He has stated, however, that he is Catholic:

    Given the Catholic Church’s lack of emphasis on End Times teaching, it appears that we have a guy out to make a fast buck by announcing himself as a ‘Christian numerologist”. There is nothing on the web to indicate that he has ever even claimed that title until very recently (I am not ignoring the fact that there is no such thing as a Christian numerologist, just that he seems to have suddenly become one). He incorporated (misunderstood) teachings from Evangelicals about the End Times, throws in a bizarre numerical prediction which he cooked up, and tries to make a fast buck.

    That was my take also, a charlatan out for fast publicity and money. It is still amazing to me that he received any attention at all except he connected himself and his prediction to the Bible and could be identified as a crazy ‘Christian’ since he was raised a Catholic.
