#333: David Reagan

David Reagan is a Bible scholar and head of the Lamb and Lion Ministries. He also host of a weekly show on DayStar and an author of several books, including the children’s book “Jesus is Coming Soon!” and lots of stuff on the imminent rapture (signs, what it is like to live in the (current) end times, America’s role in the end times, and so forth). He also publishes the magazine “Lamplight” on, well, endtime stuff. An overview of central endtime signs is here. Among the telltale signs are the current, historically completely novel phenomena “love of self (humanism), the love of money (Materialism), and the love of pleasure (hedonism),” and the fact that Christians are currently persecuted in the US – they’re not even allowed to beat up gays anymore! Furthermore, people today know stuff! Tell me that isn’t an endtime sign. Not to mention the EU, “wars and rumors of wars”, and the “acceleration of life”. And don’t forget the earthquakes!

The positive spiritual signs are equally compelling: the proclamation of the Gospel to the whole world, a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and spiritual illumination to understand prophecies that have been “sealed up” until the end times. Right … (in fact, the last one refers to the publication of Hal Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth”, which according to Reagan was “the number one best seller in the world with the sole exception of the Bible for the next ten years!” (references not provided)). According to RaptureReady “David Reagan stands among that rare breed of individuals that are well-known for being a dependably source of reliable information.” Right.

See him describe hell here. Apparently, hell is an evolved Hades and exists “because God cannot be mocked”.

Oh, and global warming is a terrible myth. And the Nobel Prize is a conspiracy against America.
Diagnosis: Good, old-fashioned madman. Probably limited impact, but you never know.
