Obama is the anti-christ?

So I keep seeing these comments that Obama shouldn't be elected because he's the anti-christ, but doesn't that mean that we SHOULD elect him?

From what I understand this anti-christ character will be pretty good at unifying the beltway.

Either Campbell Brown or Katie Couric at the upcoming Democratic National Convention.

That's just because we're more familiar with Mr. Dalton than you are, Harry. We know his ways.

You baffle me about 95% of the time. Why did you expect more responses, did you take this seriously?

That's apparently the only response you could come up with, so why did you expect more?

Most here are in league with The One. To say more only invites peril for they are legion and act as His eyes and ears and for that He doth send a thrill up their leg.

Best to flee from this place for there is much danger.

He can't be the anti-christ and the messiah at the same time, you have to make a decision.

I'll make a response

The anti-Christ always knows how to disguise himself well. What a devious demon

2 Corinthians 11:14
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

The Devil in disguise, a wolf in sheep's clothing, RuPaul... many things are not what they appear to be.

Christian history has thought of the antichrist as being either....

1) Anyone who preaches false doctrine (i.e., no specific individual), as in early Christianity.
2) The papacy, as argued by anti-Catholic Protestant reformers from the 1500s to the early 20th century.
3) A specific Antichrist to come just before the end of the world, to be accepted by the Jews and enthroned in the temple at Jerusalem, as created by Francisco Ribera, a 16 century Spanish Catholic Jesuit priest, specifically to counter the anti-Catholic Protestant theology on the subject (exchanging anti-Catholicism for populist anti-Semitism? How typical.).

Ribera's antichrist is identified by the following traits:

Quote:
Persecute and blaspheme the saints of God.

Rebuild the temple in Jerusalem.

Abolish the Christian religion.

Deny Jesus Christ.

Be received by the Jews.

Pretend to be God.

Kill the two witnesses of God.

Conquer the world.
Likewise, Ribera was the first to formulate the idea that the antichrist was an apocalyptic concept that had no bearing on the Middle Ages or the papacy, but, instead to the distant future. Ribera's antichrist theology was widely absorbed into Protestantism with the advent of the influential Protestant Scofield Reference Bible that was published in the immediate years before World War I. Thus, Scofield's pessimistic view regarding our future resonated well with the horrors that people experienced during the war, and it was this Bible that permanently introduced an obsession with "the end times" into American fundamentalist Christianity.

So, basically, by all reasonable standards, Obama is not "The Antichrist."

Can't say that I'm familiar with Ribera, I'll have to look into him.

Whether Revelations deals with Christians in it's first-century setting being warned about a coming prosecution at the hand of Caesar or is a narrative of world events with much yet to play out, it is highly symbolic literature and must be read as such.

So, if he gains majority of Jewish voters we can pack things up.

Don't the people coming up with such bullshit (he is the anti-Christ or the messiah) realize how utterly stupid they come about?
