Robertson Loses OpportunityJanuary 11, 2006
Because of his comments about Sharon, Pat Robertson has lost a possible evangelistic opportunity in Israel: Israel pulls plug on Pat Robertson deal. Robertson was going to be building a Christian heritage center in the Holy Land. But now Israel has said no.
An Israeli spokesman explained: "We will not do business with him, only with other evangelicals who don't back these comments. ... We will do business with other evangelical leaders, friends of Israel, but not with him."
See, saying dumb things can hurt your opportunity to reach others. Now this center to teach Christians and others about the ministry of Jesus is in limbo. Hopefully Robertson will finally learn to think before he speaks (but don’t hold your breath).
