Prophets try to profit from 'prophecies'

-A A +A

I commend the Rev. Kurt Simon’s column in the “Minister’s Forum” in the June 2 edition of The Leader-Union concerning end-of-the-world prophecies.
His commentary was accurate for those who read the Bible literally, and convincing for those who read the Bible metaphorically. Simon also had the courage to expose the so-called television prophets, who profit from their “prophecies,” while spreading fear and anxiety.
We would all do well to concern ourselves less with the end of the world (over which we have no knowledge or control) and concern ourselves more with doing our part to make this world a better place.
