Whereas the Bible is God's word to all people in all places at all times, and points to the Son of God, Jesus Christ; in that, it is the final arbiter of God's revelation, and is given that men may believe and be saved, and not to advance anyone human beings personal agenda,

and

Whereas we, the undersigned, take the Gospel of Jesus Christ seriously, for the sake of those who have not yet believed,

and

Whereas we, the undersigned, also take the word of God seriously, as it is God's word and not the result of some man's imagination,

and

Whereas we, the undersigned, also have a concern for the integrity of the whole church, regardless of denomination, to be a credible witness for the Gospel of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the whole word of God,

and

Whereas Pat Robertson has, in the last several years, abused the authority of Scripture, abused the license of a minister of God to expound of what "God has said" to him regarding prophecies and signs, and abused the position of high visibility to the public he possesses in those ways while representing himself as a minister of the Gospel,

Therefore, we respectfully and earnestly exhort him to stand down from his self-appointed position as "prophet" -- that is, one who receives God's own words and speaks them to the world apart from established Scripture -- and apologize to the church, and on behalf of the church to those who have witnessed his abuses, for his on-going representation of himself as a mouthpiece for God Almighty.

Because Mr. Robertson has made his errors publicly, we call for his apology publicly. His mistaken representation of his imagination as the word of God is a stumbling block to unbelievers, and discredits the Gospel, which is the only power to save.
