From the COG-PKG website Ron Weinland “I am a False Prophet.” April 1, 2009
Last year, I said that if my prophecies did not come true that I would be an insane liar if I continued claiming to be a prophet. Indeed, I said I would repent and declare myself a false prophet. The prophecies I made have not come true, even after a delay of 8 plus months.
I have been repeatedly confronted by mockers - as many of God’s prophets have been. But what they said would come to pass did. God backed them up validating them.
In the face of this evidence and after much prayer and soul searching, I have come to the conclusion I was wrong and misguided, perhaps even deluded. I truly believed I was God’s prophet and my wife, too. She initially doubted, but I convinced her. For the last year, reality has been banging on the door.
The mounting evidence has proven otherwise to me. I am not one of the Two Witnesses of Revelation and neither is my wife, Laura. We are not prophets. We repent our blasphemy and ask God’s forgiveness. We will continue to seek God and his will. Everyone makes mistakes, but it takes a lot to admit them, especially large ones. The sin of pride has been my downfall, I repent of it.
Our beliefs, even though wrong were sincere; therefore we will keep the all tithes which we collected in good faith to continue a reformed ministry. God doesn’t give refunds and neither do we. If Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart, Tim Haggard, a meth using homosexual can hit the refresh button, why can’t we?
I’m wearing sackcloth underwear sprinkled with ashes and will continue to do so for a week, then I’m back to silk boxers.
End Times stuff interests me.
HEY!! If you like my blog become a follower above. (Not in the Weinland sense, you know the good sense like you find it entertaining.) I listen to Ron's lousy sermons so you don't have to! Favorite quote from my psychiatrist: "Dill Weed, you're a self-hating narcissist."
