Re: Is Obama the Antichrist?

But Biblical prophecy suggests that the Antichrist will be a popular well regarded man of good character. He will come in peace & carry the hope of the world upon his shoulders.

Re: Is Obama the Antichrist?

It's a case of pre-destination. The appearance of the Antichrist is unavoidable, & it doesn't suggest that Christians should stop doing good work & spreading 'the gospel' for their god. They should not hope for the Anti-Christ, but believe that they have been forewarned of his reign & therefore expect him nevertheless.

[quote="DevastatorJr."]... It's so funny that so many so-called Christians who claim to be on the side of goodness and righteousness can think and believe things that are so petty and evil.

... like The Spanish Inquisition, Stalin, the Holocaust, etc... etc... etc...

Just for the record - I'm NOT a fundamentalist of anything, nor do I think you're crazy. This story however, does not stand up to scrutiny, nor is it theologically sound.

Actually, "anti-christ" was a word coined by Johannine Christians to describe other Christians who didn't believe the way they did.

And Biblical prophets were speaking to the people of their own time, not to Americans in the year 2009. Biblical prophecy is not the kind of prophecy that means "predicting the future."

The Nazis were not Christians.

I'm not Roman Catholic, but your comment seems suspect to me. The religion was definitely shaped by the Roman state, but it didn't originate with the empire.

What I think is silly is when Protestants are ignorant of how their own religion came from Rome, as if modern fundamentalist Christianity somehow predates Catholicism or is not related to it in any way.

Also, in what way would you say it is not based on Biblical principles? I'd venture a guess that it
actually is based on those to some extent, considering who they claim to worship and all.

Are you a Calvinist?

Yeah, I agree--but why would I be crazy? I didn't make up the story, I just heard it.
