First Baptist's Robert Jeffress: Obama "Paving the Way for the Antichrist"

Categories: Religion

Perfect-Ending-3D-Cover-Large.jpg
Let's get one thing clear: First Baptist's Robert Jeffress doesn't actually think President Barack Obama is Satan, which would be ridiculous. However, he says, "Although President Obama is certainly not the Antichrist, his policies are paving the way for the Antichrist."

This isn't something Jeffress thoughtlessly let slip when he thought he couldn't be heard over the holy din from First Baptist's musical fountain; it's the money quote from the promotional materials for Perfect Ending, his new book.

The book doesn't actually have much to do with Obama. It's more of a general contemplation of the biblical end times, which marvels at the Bible's ability "to foretell with laser-like accuracy events that will occur hundreds and even thousands of years after it was written."

Obama does, however, make a cameo. It's on page 113:

For the first time in history a president of our country has openly proposed altering one of society's (not to mention God's) most fundamental laws: that marriage should be between a man and a woman. While I am not suggesting that President Obama is the Antichrist, the fact that he was able to propose such a sweeping change in God's law and still win reelection by a comfortable margin illustrates how a future world leader will be able to oppose God's laws without any repercussions

Americans have sunk so far into the pit of moral depravity that Worthy Publishing thinks they aren't be interested in purchasing a dry rehashing of biblical prophecy and must be tricked into thinking it's a sensationalistic condemnation of contemporary politics. Heathens.

Today's scripture reading is from Ezeziel 23:20:

"She lusted after her lovers,  whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emissions were like that of horses."

-- And,  a short salute to Pastor WA Criswell and Bro. Jeffress,  who preached famously  "The Bible is 100% True!"

Few things bring in the shekels like good old fear mongering.

Yes, the creator of the universe -- with its billions of galaxies and trillions of stars, many of which may well have planets with other life forms inhabiting them -- certainly must have included on His to-do list the following: "Once Obama endorses same-sex marriage, allow antichrist to start ball rolling on endtimes."

"Let's get one thing clear: First Baptist's Robert Jeffress doesn't actually think President Barack Obama is Satan, which would be ridiculous. However, he says, "Although President Obama is certainly not the Antichrist, his policies are paving the way for the Antichrist.""

Always hilarious to see the ignorance of non-Christians comment on the Bible and theology.

FTR, Satan != Antichrist in any of the Christian denominations I am familiar with.  To include S Baptist.

He is one of the more pathetic closet cases walking the planet today.  And his entire claim to fame is based on homophobic outburst.   The irony and hypocrisy can be seen dripping from the corner of his little pursed lips for anyone with eyes open wide enough to view it.

She's just trolling people but I am intrigued at the events that the bible has foretold with laser like accuracy, was one of them a few years ago when scientists threw up their hands and finally admitted that the bible was right and that the sun revolves around the earth?

The people who will read this book are just looking for justifications for their racial hatred.

Obama may be a liar, a fraud, incompetent and a big disappointment to many of his faithful, but I doubt he's the antichrist.

For the life of me I will never understand how alcoholics, addicts, and rational people can live by the code of "live and let live" but so called "men of god" cannot. There is more wisdom at a midnight AA meeting than in every damn preacher in this city combined.

reading Jeffries speak about "the anti-christ", it is eerily similar to Shia theology and Ayatollah Khamenei's sermons on coming of the Mahdi.

clearly the two have more in common then they would ever admit.

Well, Obama has helped draw the likes of Ted Cruz out from under their rocks (or somewhere deeper). Maybe he's on to something.

@roo_ster Six of one, half a dozen of the other. As I understand it, the antichrist is an agent of satan, acting on his behalf. It's all bullshit anyway.

@JackJettI doubt very much, Jack Jett, that the Good Reverend is in any closet. He is pretty much what he appears to be: One more Bible pounding snake-oil salesman about whom Christ warned us (through  Luke, (17, 22-23): “The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. And they will say to you, ‘Look, there!’ or ‘Look, here!’ Do not go out or follow them."

except the Bible thumpers do not yet act to incinerate the non-believers en masse.

@bruce.levy1 He is not a moron. He just knows how to appeal to masses of morons. Rick Perry and Ted Cruz also have this talent.

@bmarvel How ironic that the last part of your Bible quote sounds like it could be from a Britney Spears song.

@bmarvel@JackJettNaah,  if the Bible is to believed,  Luke couldn't even read his own prescriptions,  much less an iTunes list.  (See if you can figure that one out)

@ThePosterFormerlyKnownasPaul any organization that funnels pedophiles from one place to another, and has been held legally responsible to some degree no less. is a Cult.  And evil and non biblical

Do you know the difference between a cult and a religion?

About 2,000 years.


Please note that it is referred to as the Catholic Faith, not the Catholic Religion.

One reason why they are considered a cult.
