Is it true that best selling author Jonathan Cahn has made no predictions in his books The Harbinger or Mystery of the Shemitah, as he claims? Pulpit & Pen News effortlessly dismantles Cahn’s assertion that he never gave a false prophecy:
Pulpit & Pen has been in this business for a while now. We’re in the business of speaking freely and we speak freely as an exercise of our religion, while also speaking (or writing) under the protection of the First Amendment. Federal Courts have ruled that bloggers have the same rights as all journalists, and the rights afforded to all the press are afforded to those not writing for “institutional press outlets” (Obsidian Finance Group v.

We ignore those letters, and never have we suffered any legal consequence for responding with a formal letter that says, “LOL.”
In fact, other than the annoyance of bogus copyright claims to YouTube that don’t understand or respect “Fair Use” (Andy Stanley’s legal team is pretty proficient at this tactic), we’ve never been silenced or so much as greatly inconvenienced by the chest-thumping threats of heretics and scoundrels.

The email, sent from Cahn’s personal address, was sent on an open Word.doc. An attorney, of course, wouldn’t be caught dead sending a Cease and Desist letter in an open Word document. The notion is laughable from its onset. Continue reading
