A Talibangelical False Prophet for Trump is Now Lying About the Bible.

Self-Proclaimed ‘Prophet’ Hank Kunneman Says Only Other ‘Prophets’ Have the Authority to Question Him | Right Wing Watch

Stung by conservative Christian complaints that the Trumpanzee Talibangelical 'prophets' who guaranteed, on God's authority, that Trump would win in November 2020, are harming the church by refusing to admit they were wrong, leading denialist and right-wing Talibangelical loon, Hank Kunneman has trawled through his hand-book of excuses and come up with a way to dismiss this criticism with the wave of his hand.

His critics have no right to criticise him, because God has allegedly only given that right to other prophets!

And apparently, he believes his credulous dupes will fall for that one!

The problem is, the Bible passage Hank Kunneman, of One Voice Ministries, Nebraska, uses as his excuse, doesn't say what he claims it says. He has used the old preaching trick of taking a passage out of context and presenting it as saying something it was clearly never intended to say.

He is quote-mining from the Bible and he is misrepresenting the Bible in his eagerness to fool his dupes into thinking he wasn't wrong.
In true Christian fundamentalist style, rather than admit he was wrong, he is doubling down on one lie by telling another lie.

He has declared that only other 'prophets' have the god-given authority to cristicise him. The actual Bible passage he cites is:
Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.

1 Corinthians 14:29
Which doesn't say what Kunneman claims it says. In context, the passage is about 'talking in tongues' and reads:
Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.

How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.

If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

1 Corinthians 14:22-31
Nothing there about a prophet only being subject to the judgement of other prophets. It's about prophets being able to interpret the gibberings of those 'speaking in tongues', and I didn't notice Hank Kunneman gibbering incoherently and claiming to be speaking in tongues when he said, in very plain English, that God had told him Donald Trump was his chosen candidate and anointed POTUS, and would win by a landslide.

As it turned out though, he may as well have been talking in tongues because his prophesies were most certainly gibberish.

Incidentally, reading on a little from that passage in the Bible, we come across one of the more odious and insidiously misogynistic passages in the whole sorry tome:
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

1 Corinthians 4:34-37
How any self-respecting woman can follow a religion that teaches that is beyond me. Passages like that were obviously written by sexually repressed, inadequate little men for whom women needed to be treated as lesser beings who needed to be denied basic human rights, and kept down and away from positions of influence in society, the better to control them and subject them to the will of such men.

However, it is the attempt by Hank Kunneman to fool his followers by misrepresenting the Bible that concerns us here. In effect, he was lying about what the Bible says, depending, as he does on his target audience not being familiar with the Bible and not being bothered to check his claims, but simply swallowing whatever he feeds them. The same level of utter contempt for his audience that a snake-oil peddler or con artist has for his marks.

And never any attempt to address the reality that his patently false prophesies can be used by people like me to point out how religion can be used by extremist frauds to manipulate and control their target dupes for political and financial gain, and how this shows that society would be better off without religions to provide frauds with these sort of excuses for their self-aggrandizement.

Are there any more depths for these Trumpanzee false prophets to plumb, or has Kunneman now reached rock bottom in his desperation to convince his credulous followers that he wasn't lying when he claimed to speak for God when he prophesied a Trump victory in 2020?

His dupes should now be asking themselves, which is more likely; that Hank Kunneman lied to them or that God lied to Hank Kunneman?

Thank you for sharing!
