Good ole Herbert died about a quarter of a century ago. Prior to his death, he publicly declared via his books, magazines, radio & TV shows that God told him that he would live to see the end of the world and that his mission was to alert everyone to what was happening. Last I checked, nothing world-ending happened in 1986. (well, there was the Chernobyl nuclear disaster on April 26, 1986 – which ended life or their way of life for many – and if it wasn’t contained, could have had dire consequences for most of Europe and Asia).
I had a friend who was brainwashed by this guy. Whenever I met him, that is all that he would talk about – Herbert this and Herbert that. That was actually what prompted me to become more knowledgable about my faith so that I could rebuke the nonsense that I was constantly hearing.
