Being Red Mooned And Red Faced

I hardly ever do sequels with my posts, but after 24 hours of mulling and poking into dusty corners I've decided that I need to be more clear about "Refutations Of Biblical Proportions!!!".
As Homer would call it, part D'oh!.
In part one I decided to not mention the full name of the man who has been a part of the bad theology
onslaught having to do with Nimrod and his buddies  “Nefilim, Giborim, Anakim, Refaim Amalekim”.
Horn. Tom R. Horn. Horn is the owner/CEO of raidersnewsupdate website and also something called survivormall. His books and materials are available from each-theological stuff on raiders, survivalist supplies on the other. Nothing wrong with promoting his own stuff-I would do that, if I didn't give mine away for free (still overpriced!).
I've done more checking into this character, and I am among the throng of believers who have the spiritual discernment to recognize that he is a liar and a fraud.
I'm not alone-dig a bit deeper into the interwebs, past all of the puff pieces and con artist familia that vouch for each other, and those who refute his beliefs can be found, read, accepted or rejected.
In part one I mentioned that his theology is populated by “Nefilim, Giborim, Anakim, Refaim Amalekim” and Nimrod who, though born a man, became something other.
I didn't mention that Horn believes that Nimrod will come back to life as the Antichrist because that sounds too silly even for a heretic.

As I've mentioned to a friend who believes all of the Blood Moon miasma, the words of the day should be "Critical Thinking".

Here are some questions that I would ask Horn using critical thinking:

Horn, you claim to have been a Pastor for 25 years. What was your denomination, ordination board?
Do you have any doctorates, any degrees? What is your education?
Please tell-what is your statement of faith? What do you believe, and why?
If you were a Pastor, why did you leave the pastorate?
Can you use Sola Scriptura, that is, only the Bible to explain your beliefs? If not, why not?

There. I wouldn't take Herm Goering's word, vouching for Hitler's honesty.
I have no reason to accept anything about Tom Horn written by his fellow travelers/fringe conspiracists.
Bye the way, about that Blood moon business. It's just marketing smoke and blood red mirrors. You couldn't sell ANY materials about four lunar eclipses. But call them Blood Moons and you've struck
blood red GOLD! It creates an emotionally charged idea out of a simple truth: sometimes there are lunar eclipses.
Yes, Scripture does mention a time when the moon will be darkened. But that will be then, and it isn't now. How can I prove that?
13    Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe.     Come, tread, for the wine press is full;     The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great.
14    Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!     For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
15    The sun and moon grow dark     And the stars lose their brightness. Joel 3:13-15

This speaks of the Day of the Lord, when Christ judges the wickedness of the world. Not happening now.

 29“But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Matthew 24:29
This speaks of the Day of the Lord, when Christ judges the wickedness of the world. Not happening now.

 10    For the stars of heaven and their constellations     Will not flash forth their light;     The sun will be dark when it rises     And the moon will not shed its light. Isaiah 13:10
This speaks of the Day of the Lord, when Christ judges the wickedness of the world. Not happening now. 
See the pattern? These are some of the proof texts for those getting all excited about the Blood Moons. 
C'mon, brethren! Critical thinking! Read the Scriptures for yourself and ask God, not John Hagee, Tom Horn or Mark Biltz-ask God to show you the truth. And then be humble enough to admit that you were wrong.

You might be wondering what the picture has to do with the post?
Absolutely nothing, except that it is a pink beach made up of a mineral named Rhyolite. See? There is a logical explanation for the beach being pink. No hybrid aliens, no blood moons, no UFOs. It's just the way it is.
