Many times throughout the last two-thousand years people have been easily fooled into believing the fraudulent claims of religious charlatans and others who were clearly self-deceived. Here is just one famous example.
Kirtland, Mo. Feb. 14, 1835. Today, in a meeting that he said God had told him to call, a local preacher, who calls himself a prophet of God, told an excited gathering of his followers that God had revealed to him that he as well as many of those in the audience would live to see the return of Jesus. It was the will of God, he said, that they should be ordained to the ministry and go forth to prune the vineyard for the last time, because the coming of the Lord was only fifty-six years away. If it is true that God speaks through this preacher/prophet, Jesus will return in 1891. On the other hand, if Jesus does not return at that time then he will be exposed as a liar and a false prophet.
News Update: Carthage, Ill. Jun. 28, 1844. Last night, in an attempt to escape from the local jail, a self proclaimed prophet of God and leader of a controversial religious movement, was shot and killed along with his brother, Hyrum. The preacher, who recently announced his candidacy for President of the United States and who has come under fire by a few dissenting members of his movement for saying that God had commanded that polygamy be practiced by his followers, was in jail on charges of treason and conspiracy stemming from his involvement in certain recent criminal acts. In 1835, this same preacher/prophet gained notoriety after prophesying that he and other members of his movement would live to see the return of Jesus. Shouldn't it make one wonder what else this man was mistaken or lying about.
The "reports" above are based on actual events. Isn't it amazing that there are millions of people, many otherwise well educated, still following the teaching of that "prophet" and that their numbers are growing daily?
