A prominent Evangelical commentator Cal Thomas called Obama a “false prophet” in a recent pre-election op-ed . He appears to be representing his views as the Evangelical opinion on the subject:
The question which Thomas raises returns us to the issue that I have harped on before, how do we coherently explain prophets, true and false.
In response to a previous post of mine, Tim’s comments seemed to indicate that the reason Mormons are shunned by other Evangelicals is due to the fact that we are followers of false prophets.
Mormons have a lot at stake in coming up with a coherent explanation. The entire history of Mormonism is intimately connected to validating or invalidating prophetic claims.
So, the question I have for both Mormons and Evangelicals: How can you know a false prophet from a true prophet, and what are the consequences for the sincere followers of the false prophets?
Do we go to hell if we start to believe Obama’s theology?
