But who – or what- is a ‘prophet’?

prophet1Perhaps it would be a fair definition to describe a prophet as a person, who has the perspicacity [discernment] to observe truths that are unfashionable, and the tactlessness to voice them. In this way the prophet greatly annoys whoever those people are that happen to be the contemporary ‘pillars of society’: because the prophet makes them feel uncomfortable, and rather less confident of their own wisdom and their own worth.”

Hubert J.B. Allen
