Much Ado About Nothing!

Predicting the end of the world on a specific date makes one an easy target for ridicule, as Ron Wieland has painfully discovered. But predicting the end of the world is not new, for since the beginning of the Christian era, over zealous, misguided people have been predicting the end of the world. Ron Wieland is just another addition to the clan, and there will be many more before the world actually ends. As a consequent of Ron's failed predictions, the regular posters at AW Blog, including its erudite host, who fancies himself as a budding scholar, have been fulminating against the deranged predictions of Ron Wieland, a former WCG minister.

However, the people who tend to be leading the pack in pouring scorn on false prophets are usually completely ignorant of the teachings of the bible. They tend to argue that because all previous predictions have failed to come to pass, there are no end time prophecies in the bible. One is tempted to call their conclusion a failure of logic, but that would be to credit them with a logically mind, instead of being afflicted with supernatural blindness.

Still, God's former servant, Herbert W. Armstrong, who outlined many end time prophecies, which are currently being fulfilled and can be seen by those whose eyes are opened, has also been derided by the cabal of scoffers at Ambassador Watch Blog. Yet Mr. Armstrong's explanation of the end time prophecy of the breaking of the pride the US's and Britain's power is currently being fulfilled in Iraq and Afghanistan. For the past five years a ragtag, ill equipped "army," without access to satellite technology, helicopter gunships, tanks, strike aircraft, stealth bombers or guided bombs, has remained undefeated by the world's greatest super power! If the fiasco in Iraq and Afghanistan is not the breaking of the pride of the US's and Britain's power, then, I don't know what is or will be the breaking of it!

But the bloggers at AW are too blind to focus on the reality of what is happening under their noses. They prefer to poke fun at Ron Wieland, which methinks is much ado about nothing!
