Christians afraid of Obama should re-read their Bibles.

Missouri ethanol plant manager explains why he won't be voting for Obama.

Conversation from clip:

"He scares me to death."


"Why? Read Revelations Chapter 13."


So- I did. And so does the interviewer from the Guardian UK.

Here it is. In no part does it talk about a "dark-olive skinned visitor that comes out of the East" as the man in the interview claims.
It does say the anti-Christ, however, will have "seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy". And that he "opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven."

WHAT THE $%^# people. Get your myths and legends straight! I am so happy these people are the minority...

"The only thing to Fear is Fear itself."

If these people want to start tagging people as the anti-Christ, they should check out Bill Maher! Heh heh.

I have read Revelations many times, and I agree Obama does not reflect any possible hint at being the anti-Christ. First off, he is a follower of Christianity, something the anti-Christ, who according the the Bible is the DEVIL, could NOT DO!

Also - all the talk of the beast having all those heads and horns and crowns are symbolic - identifying different nations and powers. If Christians want to be on the lookout for their supposed anti-Christ they should be looking at potential leaders of the U.N., not the U.S.!

Lots of Christians also forget that the book of Revelations says their will be TWO beasts - the anti-Christ and the false prophet. Most Biblical scholars believe the anti-Christ will rise to power, then he will be assassinated, only to come back to life after three days (just like Jesus) and he will no longer just be a political power but also a religious power. The false prophet would then lead the world in a new, single religion that would be centered around worshiping the anti-Christ.

I also want to point out that Christians are definitely not a minority. Over 75% of Americans identify themselves as Christians. And don't forget - Obama is one of them.

Clarification- I didn't mean Christians were the minority. I meant those who think Obama is the anti-Christ.

Duh! I bet you read the wrong bible. Get with the times, Smash. That could be the only explanation. He could be reading the NIV, NAS, RSV, LB, NLT, NKJV. Or maybe he gets his information from the ASV or the Darby translation. I'm taking a good guess he probably doesn't read the AAD (African American Devotional Bible). Maybe he skims through the The Living Insights Bible or even one of these:

The Quest Study Bible
The Mommy & Me Story Bible
The New International Reader's Version (NIrV)
The NIrV Kid's Study Bible
The NIV Senior's Devotional Bible The Teen Study Bible
The Men's Devotional Bible
The Women's Devotional Bible 1
The Student Bible
The NIV Life Application Bible
The New Adventure Bible

or maybe his bible translation pertains to the book of Morman or Scientology.

Does the KKK have a bible?

All you have to do is relate this simple question found on ChristiaNet to every life event you ever have and you will be set:

Is it right for a Christian to date a non-Christian? I don't know if that is God's way of being a witness to that non-Christian.

Moderator - Biblically no, it is not right.
