Sorry, not sorry: Why the NAR prophets’ apologies for getting things wrong don’t cut it

“With their failed prophecies about Trump’s reelection, NAR prophets have disappointed the people, damaged the reputation of the Church, and have fostered greater suspicion of Christian leadership. YouTube videos mocking all evangelicals because of their failed prophecies have received millions of views, such as this one titled “Evangelicals Freak Out.” The NAR prophets have made it much more difficult for Christians to share the gospel going forward.”

(Holly Pivec & Doug Geivett – Apologies from the many “prophets” of the New Apostolic Reformation who falsely prophesied President Trump’s reelection are pouring in, including apologies from Kris Vallotton, Shawn Bolz, and Jeremiah Johnson.

They say their failed prophecies don’t make them false prophets. They maintain that they’re still genuine prophets of God, and they stress that they’ve prophesied accurately in the past. Yet they admit that, this time, they missed it big time.

Many of their followers have responded to their apologies with praise for their humility and their willingness to admit they were mistaken. Indeed, many have said that the apologies actually serve to strengthen their credibility and provide more reason to trust the “prophets.” (Other followers are doubling down and insisting that the “prophets” were right and that, despite all evidence to the contrary, Trump will see a second term in office because God will vindicate the prophets and reverse the present circumstances.)

In short, many of their followers have accepted the apologies of the “prophets” and have indicated that they still see them as legitimate prophets. The “prophets” did apologize, after all. Wasn’t that big of them? Shouldn’t we give them credit for owning up to their mistakes?

Here are some reasons why their apologies aren’t enough.  View article →
