The History Channel Does Another Hit Piece On Christianity (Is Obama The Anti-Christ?)
http://www.history.com/shows.do?episodeId=203461&action=detail ^ | 11/15/2008 | History.com

How would you recognize the most evil person on Earth? According to many historical texts, you should look for a brilliant, enigmatic public figure who transforms the world for good--for a while. Basically, the last person you'd tap as Satan's human emissary. While many believe the Antichrist has come and gone, just as many believe he will soon arrive, if he's not already in our midst. Join us for harrowing two-hour look at an evil so obscure that he answers only to Satan. Real? Our group of prophecy believers and historical experts help sort it out. We follow the emergence of the Antichrist from pre-Judaic texts, through the Book of Daniel and Revelation, into Christian writings of the Middle Ages, and other religious traditions as well. Aided by interviewees both religious and secular, comprised of eminent clergy, scholars, historians, psychologists, and culture makers, we'll examine the evil enigma from every conceivable angle

Basically they make fun of anyone who believes that the end times are near and that every generation throughout history has their own Anti-Christ, including Hitler. Total brain/man worship at it's best. Completely moronic definition of "The Beast". Paradox is that the New World Order is in complete simpatico with Bible prophecy.

I think I’ve seen this one before. Unless they made a new one.

This is part of the war on Christianity. The Gays are part of that war that is being waged on Christianity now

From what I understand reading the Revelation of John is that the Anti-Christ will come from what is now the mid-east area. When the Bible spoke of the world it was the Roman world since they didn’t know there was the North and South American continents ... anyway being Jewish I look for the anti-Christ to come out of the mid-east area ....

--------make fun of anyone who believes that the end times are near ----

People have believed that for a very long time, what's wrong with making fun of them?

Obama is not THE anti-Christ. The real one is yet to come, though I believe the stage is being set. We should not concern ourselves with this anyway, but live each day in the best possible manner.

There's a difference of opinion between Protestants and Catholics regarding what "anti christ" even means.

It isn't necessary to come up with a "conspiracy" to figure out that you will find divergent opinions on the matter.

That's why I've lately been referring to Obama as "an acolyte of the antichrist". I'd earlier relegated Hillary Clinton to the character identified as "the beast" ~ hence "Hildabeast".

Again, there are different readings. Some argue that "the beast" and the "anti christ" are the same, some argue that they're different, and may, in fact, occupy totally different periods of time.

You can step off the planet arguing about the various female figures in Revelation.

Tothe degree Revelation differs from Daniel, I dismiss it.

Please yourself, but pardon me if I laugh. Provide a projection of an event on a certain date or I’d say in a 30 day period, so we can wait with you and then move on.

Historically many people have had unfounded views on the natural sciences. So I guess all of natural science is bunk, right?

No wait, arguments that profoundly stupid are only valid when used by naturalists against theology.

True but was it revealed to John??
He spoke of Gog and Magog as the forces that would come against Israel ... now, America is the only country that up to now protects Israel ... if Obama chooses not to come to their aid then ... I feel that if the Yom Kippur war(the Arab’s called the Ramadan War) of 1972 happened during Carter there would be no Israel now ...

Oh, I TOTALLY disagree with putting a date on it. Jesus said NO MAN but the Father Himself knows the date....

Life can be short. I learned that personally this week....don’t mock the fact that it IS coming...

He can’t be the anti-Christ because the anti-Christ is the big guy ... in the Revelation of John he speaks of the little horn and the big horn. The little horn points to the anti-Christ - so maybe Obama is the little horn who would point to the big horn who comes out of the middle east ...

Gee, that was my point!

Do you know how many generations have done what you're doing. You can hunker down and wait for the end, but I'll not join you in your interpretation of what's going on.

My God made me capable of thinking.

Obama may not be THE anti-Christ, but he gives a good impersonation.

Amen. As christians, our duty never changes, day in or day out, despite what party is in office, what conditions the economy is, or anything else. We prepare for the rapture - and gather as many souls for christ that we can.
