Hal Lindsey: Prophet or Scaremonger?

Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth

Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth

Even the title of this book is fraught with fear. But sometimes that’s the only way people will wake up to the Truth. They have to be scared out of their wits.

When I first read this book in the middle of the 1970’s, I was still a firm believer in the Rapture. And I had no experience with alternate spirituality, so I didn’t really worry that I might have been deceived by the Devil.

This year is the first time I’ve reread the book since then, and boy, oh boy, have I ever changed since then.

Meet Hal Lindsey

Because Dr Lindsey is a public figure, I have erected his birth chart without his permission. I didn’t even try to obtain his okay because, according to his book, he lumps Astrology in with other Satanic works. So, even publishing it here will be proof enough for him that I am doing the Devil’s bidding.

The timing of his birth has been rectified by an event that happened when he was 29. He ‘felt’ that God had prevented his death, and from then on he felt he was operating with the Holy Spirit in him. I equate that with the placement of Pluto in the early 7th House.

His Ascendant is Capricorn. That’s a natural position of a person who relies upon Bible Scripture for his ‘proof’ of God’s Word. (I will refrain from discussing any further planetary positions and aspects, but if you have any awareness of Astrology, you will have an insight into his personality.)

Still Preaching the Word

Prophecy, as we have already seen, is an inexact science. In fact, it would be fair to call it an art, instead. Dr Lindsey has been saying, more-or-less, the same things for almost 50 years now. He may see the work of the Devil behind every event and thought process that doesn’t agree with his understanding, so I will not disparage him. But, he has misunderstood the most basic bit of information: we are all in this together.

Some of us who have been Gnostic Christians for a very long time, over many lifetimes, are beginning to make sense of Satan’s ‘job’. We have belief systems for our religious life. He is meant to ‘try us’ to see if we’re sufficiently ready to move on. If we’re not, we repeat our lessons until we finally gain wisdom.

So, imagine my surprise to realize that Fundamentalists are really immature Gnostics. When they wake up to the Truth, they will be surprised, too.

Oh, and this book showed up in the Google search as “Satan is Alive and Here on Planet Earth.” Why the change? Obviously, we don’t want the Devil to be ‘well’. One word changes everything.
