The Prophetic Culture of Trending News Prophesies — 1 Comment

  1. Yes, indeed, and apart from the problems of a “prophecy” being instigated by the news and then becoming a spiritualized commentary on that news, there is the additional problem that the “prophetic” commentary may itself be informed by the news commentary. 

    To make the matter even worse, the news, although always selective, partial and misleading, is now, even more than ever, pumping out blatant propaganda on the behalf of the anti-Christ, corporate interests who own it. 

    A fundamental issue is the danger of there being a “prophetic culture”, since a culture is defined where people choose to regard as acceptable what others regard as acceptable.  It is the way of the world.  The calling of a true prophet must be to go against culture, including the “prophetic culture” of the church. Those with this calling have a choice between obedience and popularity.  Paul said, “For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” [Galatians 1:10]
