Trump, Putin, and Antichrist.

trumpantichrist

Could Trump be the Antichrist?  Or is he one of many antichrists?  Could the Antichrist be…Putin?

Are we in End Times as prophesied in Daniel and Revelation in the Bible?  Is it an extinction event brought about by human activities?  Or is this merely a dark time in history that we can reverse if we work at it or that will eventually resolve on its own?

Nyssa of Nyssa’s Hobbit Hole has written an article about all of this.  It makes for  interesting reading, whether you are a believer in End Times or not.

Trump, Putin, and Antichrist 

As always, please leave comments under the original post.

You also may be interested in videos by a pastor named Brother James Key.  He is an evangelical who is convinced Trump is the Antichrist based on Biblical prophecy.   I have to admit they are quite convincing.   He has a Youtube channel.   You may want to start with this video.

I’m not saying Trump (or Putin) is necessarily the Antichrist.  You will have to judge for yourself.   But I think it’s a possibility.

Another possibility that some skeptics have proposed is that the GOP/Trump is deliberately chumming the waters and causing events to happen that fall in line with Biblical prophecy, in order to “hurry up” the Rapture.  That could explain why some evangelicals don’t care about climate change or nuclear war.   As an example, Trump calling himself Chosen One (a precursor to eventually calling himself God) was contrived to match biblical prophecy and not a natural outcome; the same could be said of the Middle East peace deal and moving the US embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.   Rolling back regulations that keep climate change at bay or launching nuclear weapons could also lead to an Armageddon-like catastrophe.

The Exodus

I’ve been seeing a lot of this sentiment in the past few months, but I’ve been aware of the problem with American Christianity for a long time. The election seems to have wakened a sleeping tiger.

I saw a comment today that was so shocking and so true I felt like I’d been hit by a bowl of ice water:

“I’ve often wondered, if Satan started a religion, what would it look like? It wouldn’t involve hooded red and black robes, pentagrams and blood sacrifice. That would be too obvious.  It would pose as Christianity, but subvert all the parts that matter.  It would look a hell of a lot like the Religious Right.”

This poem really resonated with me and begged to be shared. I believe God is speaking to us all through this blogger’s stunning words. Please leave comments under the original post.

I have seen your religion, and I hate it.
I have heard your doctrine, and I loathe it.
Take away your empty praise songs,
your vacuous worshiptainment.
Your mouth is full of religious words,
but your proverbs are salted manure.

“The sick deserve to be sick.
The poor deserve to be poor.
The rich deserve to be rich.
The imprisoned deserve to be imprisoned.”
Because you never saw him sick, or poor, or in prison.

“If he had followed police instructions,
if he had minded the company he keeps,
he would not have been killed,”
You say in the hearing
of a man hanging on a cross
between two thieves.

“People who live good lives
do not have pre-existing conditions,” you say,
carving these words over the hospital door:
“Who sinned, this man or his parents,
that he was born blind?”

“It is the church’s job, not the government’s,”
say…
