Is Barack Obama the Antichrist?

27 02 2008



Probably not. I’ve heard this argument put up about nearly every single recent political figure, and of that number, Obama ranks probably somewhere in the middle. He’s too likable–and too unliked, oddly–to fit the description. On top of all of that, if he were, I don’t think he’d waste time cat-fighting with Hillary Clinton. He’d probably be more concerned with eating Mitt Romney, or anally corrupting Mike Huckabee.

In these hyper-paranoid “end times” it’s easy for the religious right to point fingers at what they think is the next devil hiding behind the nearest bush. People, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it now: things are way too good for this to be the end of days. According to the bible–the, uh, Christian one–the Apocalypse is going to happen during an era so shitty it will make modern-day Cleveland seem like a mecca with breast-shaped clouds and rainbow-crapping unicorns.

Kids, we ain’t there yet, so just calm down.

I understand the sentiment well enough, I think. It’s tough just standing there, waiting around for someone–especially your savior, if that’s the case–and it gets tougher as the days roll by. All your chortling and prophesying starts looking pretty… Well… Crazy, I guess is the word I’m looking for. Not that it’s crazy to expect some magical man to descend from the heavens with a sword hanging out of his mouth believe in texts written thousands of years ago by people you don’t know. Don’t get me wrong, there: if you believe it, there’s probably nothing crazy about it.

But spending all your time looking skyward counts as, if not exactly crazy, then at least wasteful and irresponsible. On the other hand, accusing every odd-ball politician who comes along as being the Great Deceiver’s #1 Hench-Demon qualifies you as being Grade A Bat-Shit Loco.  

Speaking of which…

There’s nothing I like seeing more than some good old homegrown lunacy. Go run a quick Google search on “Obama Antichrist” and see how many Christian groups are now extolling the wisdom of history’s most famous, and most consistenly incorrect, prophet.

You all know the guy. It’s not Benny Hinn, although that would be pretty funny, too.

Obtain Joe Vankovering’s “Man of Sin” book or DVD… after studying Eschatology for over 11 years now, this is the best, most compelling evidence regarding who he may possibly be that I’ve ever seen. Through a thorough process of elimination lays out where he comes from through the book of Daniel.

In His Mighty Grip!

Does it really matter? Doesn’t the bible say that the “anti-christ” will be so damned good at his job that he’ll deceive even the elect? People can study and postulate until the cows come home, and it won’t do a bit of good. A lot of really bad people come from places mentioned in every book of that type, and none of them have so far filled the bill. How many more will have fingers wrongly pointed at them in the name of Christianity?

The goal is awareness for those who will be here… I feel that as long as seeds can be planted God can certainly water them during that time. Isn’t it worth trying? I don’t believe God will rebuke us for trying. Besides, we don’t know that Joe has it wrong… his theory is only a possibility.
