About one in four Americans suspect that President Barack Obama might be the antichrist, more than a third believe that global warming is a hoax and more than half suspect that a secretive global elite is trying to set up a New World Order, according to a poll released on Tuesday.

I don’t give the Narcissistic Little Marxist Bastard that much credit.

He’s not smart enough to be the AntiChrist, but he is certainly Satan’s lackey, warring against God’s Word and those who follow it.

In other news...
Three out of four Americans held in a zombie like trance by the antichrist.

Why? Just because he’s spent 4 years destroying the economy, the dollar, pitting groups of people against each other, and bringing about the conditions necessary for Armageddon?

Even the left-wing media likes getting “the” Antichrist and the Beast conflated (especially since the Bible mentions “many Antichrists” and that being a sign of being close to the end). The Beast refers to a specific power, and that power was actually active during Jesus’ day; the USA did not exist then, obviously, and never had “horns” as the Beast did (the Beast is described as a destructive power, not a constructive one).

Can’t be the anti-Christ. He is a deer in the headlights without a teleprompter.

Three out of four aren't sure that he ISN'T the antichrist. :)

Actually, that percentage is pretty high when context is considered.

Roughly 1/2 of America supports Obama, so they are clearly not believing Christians (some are perhaps Christian in name only).

And not all those who voted against Obama are Christians.

Ergo, more than half of believing Christians believe Obama is the anti-Christ (and some of those who say they don't think he is the anti-Christ might be withholding the truth about how they really feel).

Didn’t that same series also claim that Sodom was destroyed for mere “inhospitality” as well?

Those believing Christians who don't believe Obama is the anti-Christ might not have considered the idea that the anti-Christ is just an ordinary mortal (or perhaps half-mortal) until Satan formally invests him with the full measure of his infernal power.

As a blank slate (a cipher), Obama would be the ideal candidate for Satan to fill with his absolute evil. And as President, he would be in the perfect position to use such power in the furtherance of Satan's agenda (the destruction of Israel, among other things).

The producers pulled punches there...and also in their failure to address the Nephilim's vast evil as reason for the Great Flood.

Indeed. Maybe a bit touchy that the word for “violence” in Hebrew (i.e. that caused by the aforementioned Nephilim and others) happens to be “Hamas”?

And Satan said unto Zero,

Barack my son, let us examine you in terms of the seven deadly sins.

Pride you have perfected. Your condescension is a model to My servants everywhere.

Greed and envy are the basis of the economic planks of your party's platform and your campaign.

Lust is the basis for the social values planks of your party's platform and your campaign.

You stir up wrath between races, and it can be put into effect efficiently today using flash mob apps.

You criticize gluttony. A useful fakeout, with the hope of substituting pride for gluttony.

Your shortcoming is sloth. It may be a deadly sin but My servants are expected to be diligent in the pursuit of My kingdom. You spend time on the golf course that could be used to further My kingdom and the rule of My servant Mohammed. You are mocked on the internet by people who say that you don't have the work ethic to be the Antichrist.

“The survey, which was conducted by Public Policy Polling, asked a sample of American voters about a number of conspiracy theories, phrasing the questions in eye-catching language that will have the country’s educators banging their heads on their desks.”

I’m an educator, and I AM banging my head against the desk because these percentages are so low. ONLY 1/4 think he’s the Antichrist?! ONLY 37% know that global warming is a hoax? Obviously I have to work harder...

That's Revelation 19:20.

"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."

The Antichrist will be smarter by a long shot, and not so lazy. Obama is a joke on this nation, a reflection of those who voted for him, a national embarrassment to those of us who didn’t.

According to the prophecy of Daniel (chapter seven), the antichrist is to be the last of a long line of military conquerors. The precedent was set by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon who conquered the known world. Then came the Persian kings who did the same. Then came Alexander the Great who did the same. Then came the pagan Roman empire with its Caesars followed by the so called “Holy” Roman Empire and its emperors...like Charlemagne and Napoleon.

Does Obama fit the bill? I don’t think so. He’s not European (Roman), he’s not of the Holy Roman Empire tradition like the antichrist’s predecessors Charlemagne and Napoleon, for instance. He’s not Catholic, if anything more like Muslim.

As to military conqueror, being an American president he hardly qualifies. America, unlike Rome, unlike the antichrist’s predecessors, the Caesars, Holy Roman Empire emperors, has not fought wars of conquest. If Obama has military conquest on his mind, it hasn’t shown its hand yet. We’ll see what he does with the North Korea threat.

No. Ezekiel mentioned other sins but says Sodom was destroyed for the "abomination before me" they committed. The book of Jude further confirms it was the sexual sin (going after strange flesh) which caused God to destroy Sodom.

It was BOTH the sins of homosexuality and the neglect shown to the poor and needy.

Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. —Jude 1:7

Now this was the sin of Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen. —Ezekiel 16:49-50

"They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen. —Ezekiel 16:49-50"

In the original Hebrew (BHS) the second sentence is clearly a subordinate clause to the sentence which precedes it.

Obama is AN anti-Christ, but he’s not THE anti-Christ. He doesn’t garner enough respect around the world, even from the most liberal of nations, to be THE anti-Christ.

I think it does, Biggirl. The foundation of America is the rule of law, not the rule of a king or emperor. The founding fathers’ intention was to make the US decidedly NOT like Roman Europe...with its kings, emperors, and conquerors.

When a US president is inaugurated he takes his oath on the Bible, which, I believe is that rule of law. God’s law, the Bible, is above all men. The founding fathers in one stroke set this country on a totally different foundation, again, totally different from Roman Europe.

Not to say, of course, that this subversive we have in office believes any of this. I do believe he would like to overturn all of this (with his associates on the left), so he could crown himself some sort of emperor. Were he to succeed in this, I would join the crowd thinking he could very well be the antichrist. But as it stands now, no.

At the present he just doesn’t fit the Biblical portrait of antichrist. He exhibits a great many antichrist attributes, however, there is these other things that don’t fit. I see him as an antichrist, but not THE antichrist. The way I see it anyway.

It is still possible he's the ac. He would not use the special powers until they are needed. He's been plenty smart enough to accomplish the mission up to this point. I don't believe the preternatural stuff gets going until he has worldwide political authority.
