Christianity and the Bible: A Fertile Bed For Fanaticism
Two current cases in point that I will call your attention to and not even comment upon are:
1. A young man who claims to have the Biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit, and will ask God questions for you and relay God's answer back to you for $150. Here is the link.
2. A group that thinks they've got it all figured out and are teaching their followers and anyone else who will listen that the Saints will be raptured up to God on May 21, 2011, and that the end of the world will take place October 21, 2011. Here's the link for these crazies.
