Doesn’t Barack Obama have enough flaws without making up bizarre fictions about him? The AP reports that a Denver police officer sent out an e-mail claiming that a presidential candidate — guess who — may be a harbinger of the End of Days. The e-mail stated that the “Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40’s, of Muslim descent.”
Here is a comparable message collected by Snopes:
According to the Book of Revelations the anti-christ is: The anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuassive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal…. the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destory everything. Is it OBAMA??
Inquiring minds want to know.
Beyond the fact that Revelation says no such thing about any antichrist, Snopes points out that “since the book of Revelation was complete by the end of the second century, but the religion of Islam wasn’t founded until about four hundred years later, the notion that Revelation would have mentioned a ‘Muslim’ at all is rather far-fetched.”
But people can read into these works basically whatever they want.
Obama’s political problem is not that he is opposed to Christ, but that he seeks weaken the wall between church and state through faith-based welfare and “brotherly love” (meaning federal controls). Obama doesn’t need to be the antichrist to royally screw up the U.S. economy, as I fear he’ll do.
We need to worry about the real Christians and their political controls (in addition to the left’s political controls), not some fantasy antichrist.
