Thank God for Schizophrenic Christians
The following ad copy appeared in World magazine for Joel C. Rosenberg’s new book Implosion:
Is America an Empire in Decline or a Nation Poised for a Historic Renaissance?
This ad copy startled me. I’ve read most of Rosenberg’s books and debated him on the meaning of Ezekiel 38 and 39. (He wasn’t up for a second debate.) He’s a dispensationalist. Dispensationalists don’t believe in a Renaissance.
Had Rosenberg abandoned his dispensational views like so many other dispensationalists have, even some high-profile dispensationalists that I am not at liberty to name? No. He’s a prophecy writer who’s halting between two opinions. He’s schizophrenic similar to Brannon Howse who decries America’s problems, claims to teach Christian worldview, and then tells the kids that come to his weekend conferences that the rapture’s around the corner (see here, here, and here).
