Biblically Guided Dallas Drilling Company Still Hasn't Found Oil In Israel



John Brown gets asked the question a lot. What happens if he doesn't find oil in Israel? If his biblically inspired quest to restore the Holy Land to Israel comes to naught?

-snip-

"Well, I can't really deal with that," Brown explains in a promotional video for his company, Dallas-based Zion Oil & Gas. "Because for me to say that's not going to happen would almost be saying God's telling a lie."

To Brown, and to his 30,000 investors, the Old Testament is clear on that point. It never specifically mentions petroleum, of course, which was still several few millennia from becoming the world's dominant fuel source, but the evidence is there nonetheless, as demonstrated by the bevy of scriptures referenced on Zion's website.

In an interview with NPR this morning, Brown points specifically to Deuteronomy 33:13-16, which reads: "And for the precious things of the earth and the fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush; let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren."

1. God is withholding approval until his lawyers negotiate an acceptable percentage of the profit.

 

God was quoted as saying, "Let the idiots dig. They ain't gettin' nothing until I get 50% and a new Mercedes."

4. It sounds like this guy had some money to start with,

so maybe it's not a scam, but it might be interesting to know how much of that $130 million went into salary and expenses for Mr. Brown.

I think I'd have a bit more respect for him if it was a scam...
