One thing that all these “prophets” have in common; they are all wrong. We have been living in the last days for nearly two thousand years. If doesn't matter how many times people such as Hal Lindsey and others are wrong, for people will continue to follow them. It seems that for some Christians the Antichrist gets more attention than Christ. Forget all this fascination with trying to discern the “end times,” and focus on what God is doing through Christ Jesus.
For all the accusations against Hal Lindsey, I must admit that every time I have ever watched and listened to his show, I never have found him to go over the edge on date setting.
I observe him dutifully watching, and when he interprets current events based upon His Word, and then expresses joy in events leading to the Second Coming, I really don;t find any fault in his positions.
On the contrary, with the resources available to him, if he didn’t share with his watchers/listeners the observations he makes, one could accuse him of not performing with the spiritual gifts God may have given him.
