The Antichrist...

When I was a kid, Kissinger was the Antichrist.

Best line: "A village cannot reorganize village life to suit the village idiot."

"Can Christianity be rescued from Christians?" Oh, I hope so.

President Obama is the Antichrist who is ushering in the ends times. Or so that's the basic message being spread by those that scamper around town professing their faith in the Lord Almighty whilst stockpiling absurd amounts of weaponry and ammunition amidst some paranoid delusion that the President is trying to take their guns and bullets away. If we have, in fact, entered the waning moments of the final chapter, why the fear and paranoia? Why not jubilation and relief that the river of the water of life is to soon be flowing from the throne of God? Are they genuinely convinced they will see these crystal clear waters or are they just a tad concerned they may actually receive the reward of the dogs?

Good point, Ed. Perhaps a few reminders are in order:

Psalm 27:1
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 56:3-4
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?

Romans 8:15
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

"Evangelical subculture?" Hardly a subculture, it's pretty much everyone in America at this point.

I just got done blogging about this one myself, Deanna. Great minds think alike, it seems.

"Pretty much everyone in America?" Nooooo. Making enough noise to be heard by pretty much everyone in America is a far cry from representing pretty much everyone in America.
