Missler, Chuck and Nancy

Chuck Missler is known for what could best be termed his
[Sensationalism and speculation masquerading as
<>apologetics ], which include anything
from speculations regarding the "face on Mars" to "intelligence
briefings" on current events (often giving the suggestion of
benefitting from inside information not available elsewhere.)

"<>Proverbs 27:12

 says, 'A prudent man foreseeth the evil and hideth himself.' That
means," Missler explains, "a prudent man takes action."
At Missler's recent conference in Denver, Dena Mohr was selling a
water purification system for $199.95.

(...) And <>Chuck
Missler, Fortune 500 honcho turned Christian author, is here to
remind them. "There are 460 days left. But who's counting?" warns
Missler, standing beneath a huge projection screen that peppers the
devout audience with gospel verses and a ledger of potential Y2K
calamities - dead phone lines, bank runs and anarchy.
Davis worries about a lot of bad days that never come to pass. But he
is fairly certain that Jan. 1, 2000, will be a pretty bad day,
followed immediately by a string of even worse days named Jan. 2,
Jan. 3 and so on, without a foreseeable end.
Before dismissing Davis as a camouflaged crank, consider that he's a
mild-mannered engineer for one of America's most respected computer
networking giants. When he says the comfortable world we have grown
accustomed to is threatened by the Y2K problem, he's not talking
black helicopters and government plots.
At Chuck Missler's recent Y2K conference in Denver, Dena Mohr used
breaks in the program to wander the crowd and hawk her "Emergency
Survival" water purification system. The units cost $199.95 apiece.
The Broomfield woman handed out brochures to dozens of guests who
already had paid $30 each to hear Missler speak.
But those $199 water filters and $1,500 food kits are small change
compared to the $64,000 you could spend for an 800-square-foot cabin
plus 40 acres at a "Christian Y2K Relocation" site in Minnesota.
Called "God's Wilderness," the owners promise "far more protection in
the Y2K scenario than any other part of the United States." They are
seeking God-fearing buyers who are "willing to work" yet who are
"teachable." ......
