On God Withholding Blessings 

Rather than look at the Yahoo reports on this, let's go to the original source:

Pat Robertson Responds to Media Requests Regarding Previous Statements Made

To: National Desk

Contact: Angell Watts, Press Relations for CBN, 757-226-2450

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Nov. 10 /Christian Wire Service/ -- Pat Robertson's initial comments made on "The 700 Club" on November 10, 2005 regarding Dover residents voting area school board members out of office for supporting "Intelligent Design".

"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover. If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city. And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there."


Pat Robertson responds to media requests regarding previous statements made.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Nov. 10, -- "I was simply stating that our spiritual actions have consequences and it's high time we started recognizing it. God is tolerant and loving, but we can't keep sticking our finger in His eye forever. If they have future problems in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin…maybe he can help them."

Superficially, this seems to be in accordance with Biblical teaching:

2 Kings 17:17-20

17 They sacrificed their sons and daughters in [a] the fire. They practiced divination and sorcery and sold themselves to do evil in the eyes of the LORD, provoking him to anger.

18 So the LORD was very angry with Israel and removed them from his presence. Only the tribe of Judah was left, 19 and even Judah did not keep the commands of the LORD their God. They followed the practices Israel had introduced. 20 Therefore the LORD rejected all the people of Israel; he afflicted them and gave them into the hands of plunderers, until he thrust them from his presence.

Well, I guess it's in accordance with a Bible that doesn't include the books of Ezra...and Nehemiah...and all four Gospels...and Acts...and Revelation...
