Michael Chandler came to Kirtland, Ohio bearing treasures of ancient Egypt. It was the 1800’s and the world had gone crazy for artifacts. The problem was that nobody could read Egyptian. So Chandler sought out a brilliant young man he’d heard had a special connection with God Himself.

We’re still here, despite the fact that dozens of predictions have told us that the world would have ended by now. John Hagee, Jack Van Impe, Joseph Smith, Jehovah’s Witnesses, John Wesley, Harold Camping and so many others have made bogus predictions. What should we think about this? How do people of faith look when we are clearly wrong in such public ways? In this episode of the Truce podcast, we examine some of the reasons behind these predictions and discuss a better way forward.
