Pat Robertson: God tells me it's Bush in a blowout

NORFOLK, Va. -- Pat Robertson said Friday that God told him President Bush will be re-elected in a landslide.

``I think George Bush is going to win in a walk,'' the religious broadcaster said on his ``700 Club'' program on the Virginia Beach-based Christian Broadcasting Network, which he founded.

``I really believe I'm hearing from the Lord it's going to be like a blowout election in 2004. It's shaping up that way,'' Robertson said.

``The Lord has just blessed him,'' Robertson said of Bush. ``I mean, he could make terrible mistakes and comes out of it. It doesn't make any difference what he does, good or bad, God picks him up because he's a man of prayer and God's blessing him.''

Earlier on the program, Robertson had explained that he wanted to share ``some of the things that I believe the Lord was showing me as I spent several days in prayer at the end of 2003.''

Robertson also said that this year will be one of ``extraordinary prosperity'' and that God will bless China in 2004 ``in a way it's never known before.''

``God loves China and he loves the Chinese people,'' Robertson said. ``I believe there's going to be an unbelievable spiritual revival taking place in China this year.''

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, a frequent Robertson critic and executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said he had a prediction of his own.

``I predict that Pat Robertson in 2004 will continue to use his multimillion broadcasting empire to promote George Bush and other Republican candidates,'' Lynn said in a statement. ``Maybe Pat got a message from (Bush political adviser) Karl Rove and thought it was from God.''

A Robertson spokeswoman did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

I , still in my own way like Pat and Falwell for the boldness to stand for what they think is right.
I am in no way prepared to debate for these two guys to prove their hearts are true. I don't know if their actions are done for the right reasons or if they have a political adgenda to self promote, but I do admire their boldness to take a stand for what they fell is right.
I also believe that a tree is judged by it's fruit. Some of their fruit may not have been desirable but CBN University along with CBN broadcasting and Liberty University has turned out many truckloads of good fruit.
Just a little fruit for thought.:D

The main reason I dislike those folk, is the fact that they are devout moralists. Trying to force the unregenerate to be moral without faith - I find this to be an awful practice. Other than thatn, Jerry Falwell is a legalist, and it is quite evident if you look at the Liberty University "rules," etc.
It seems to me that they are more of a detriment than a benefit to the Christian church, and they do nothing but defile the name of Christ by their unloving remarks towards the unbelieving.

In Him,
Matt

i'm not familiar with Falwell but i agree with marvin here regarding Pat. I don't agree completely with everything Pat says nor do i agree with all his interpretations but i will say this...God has spoken to me before, why not him?
