It is up to the Christians


I was reading an article over at Politico a few days ago which talked about obama’s appeal to church-going Christians. Or, should I say, his lack of appeal to church-going Christians.

In spite of all that has been written and talked about the obama outreach effort to evangelical voters, only 28% if this large demographic group is planning to vote for obama. In fact, that number is slightly less than John Kerry received 4 years ago. How significant is this? The evangelical vote is about one third of the electorate. This is good news for John McCain.

Should anyone be surprised? I really don’t think so.

The obama campaign is offensive to Christians on many levels. Certainly the Right to Life is a large part of that. Even more so, I think, is the messiah-like worship that obama’s supporters have given to him. 0bama himself has done nothing at all to discourage them, and actually seems to revel in it.

It is the type of behavior that leaves a large portion of the evangelical right wondering if we are seeing the rise of the antichrist.

I don’t use those words easily, and just seeing them on screen gives me pause.

He can still be defeated.

This year, more than ever, it is up to the Christians.

  1. You know, I never bring up any “Antichrist” talk around folks (lots of reasons–mostly because most church folk don’t know what they’re talking about when discussing “end times” scripture), but I have heard a LOT of such remarks bruited about while I’m out n about in TRW.

    No, Obama doesn’t fit the profile for “The Antichrist” although he definitely fits the profile of AN antichrist, and as someone who’s as UNchristian and anti-christian theology/philosophy/worldview as he to be so close to the presidency is a sobering revelation *heh* of he state of our society. Not a revelation to those of us who’ve been paying attention for a while, but it seems to have awakened enough “sleepers in the pews” that the “antichrist” talk has gained some purchasing power.

    Too little, too late–and not just for this election? Maybe.

  2. Reluctantly, I use the word, not as a clarion of some personal revelation, but as a questioning, an uncertainty, and a statement of general unease with the persona of a man who requires an adoring, worshipful crowd – quick to isolate and punish any perceived sign of disagreement.

    “The” anitchrist? I don’t know. Unlikely. But …

  3. A scary sordid post on Facebook:

    ” OBAMA or DIE” this election is a life or death situation!!! If change gonna come we gotta vote and PRAY!!!

  4. His followers are a bit scary, dad.

  5. “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” 1 John 2:18

    Obama is not likely the antichrist, because there are too many things that must happen before THE antichrist rises to power that have not yet occurred. But, Obama does seem to revel in the Messianic adoration his fans bestow upon him.

  6. I would have to brush up on Revelations to have a clear notion of the anti-Christ.
    I do know, without any doubt, B-HO is unfit and unqualified to be POTUS. Dangerous times call for a serious minded, American loving candidate, not one who has gone out of his way to denigrate and impugn the greatness of this nation.

  7. i’m really sick of the celebrities using their fame to bash christians and republicans. this song i just found really pushed me over the edge was by everclear called “jesus was a democrat.” they made a video and everything for it and is even seeing the light of day with some viewers. check out the site below and see for yourself. ridiculious.

  8. Thanks, Jerry, I’ll pass. More nonsense from Hollyweird.

  10. I still do not understand how anyone can be your President without providing a birth certificate. Heck they won’t give me a driving licence without one.

    I hear the great one doesn’t even celebrate Christmas – is that right?

    Anti-Christ or no – all I can say is that you have a dodgy one at the top……. welcome to Europe!

    As a Christian I consider this a bad day but the Lord is in control.

    Can I post this here?

    Scott was taken off the air in Dallas because of heat from the party of understanding. Now he has to do this without a radio station behind him.

  12. I guess it does not help much when I post on a very old thread. I know many people here probably hate my guts and that is fine, but this was not about me.

    So much for grace.
