Being a prophet of doom and gloom is not about being right or mostly right. It is about creating a realization and appropriate actions which will avert a upcoming disaster. If the disaster cannot be averted. Then plans for mitigation and management must be enacted.
Was the Prophet Jonah correct in his prophecy to Nineveh? No. The people saved themselves. They mitigated and managed how GOD was going to respond. It is the same with any other prophecy written or foretold.
Genesis 41 shows profoundly how all of the life of Egypt were going to die. The Pharaoh had this dream in which the wrongly imprisoned slave who was sold by his own brothers. Basically said "We all are going to die" But I (Joseph) can mitigate and manage it. Well, go and read the full version and not my shortened interpretation. This is the essential school of prophecy understanding and the action which must be taken to prevent, mitigate and manage the event or events. This is something which apparently NO CHRISTIAN, Islamic or any other religious person understands. All of the bad and sad prophecies are only probable and not absolute. All prophecies which have ever been spoken or written are NOT ABSOLUTE. C.J.MacKechnie
A prophecy only becomes absolute when you and others work towards it's eventual expected coming.
