Is Barack Obama the Anti-Christ?

Is Barack Obama the Anti-Christ?

When I first heard that question, I had to ask myself whether this was some kind of joke spread by a fundamentalist nutjob living in a basement full of the first-edition copies of the “Left Behind” series. It did not take long for me to realize that the question of whether Barack Obama is the anti-christ is a fully-fledged and debated topic for those who are bent on spreading the theory: certain evangelicals and christian conservatives. In a previous post, you may have seen how republicans, either by implicit agreement or straight out proclamation, have claimed that somehow God is on the side of John McCain and that anyone who doesn’t vote for John McCain is anti-christian.

The whole thing is rather scary — the reasoning that is. When you look at the “barack-obama-is-the-anti-christ-theory,” it is based on facts that are just patently untrue, most notably the claim that Obama is a Muslim. People actually believe in their heart of hearts that Obama is the anti-christ.  For his part, McCain hasn’t gone out and proclaimed, “Obama is the anti-christ!”, but at the same time, he hasn’t done anything to ease the flames of the right’s scare tactics that Obama is the anti-christ. McCain is certainly aware of fear tactics . . . he uses them anytime and anywhere he can (see Republican Convention).  After all, you may have seen a commercial last month from McCain that echoed many of the images and messages of the “Left Behind” series.  In the end, McCain is profiting from the mistruths that certain portions of the conservative right are spreading.

As I have previously mentioned in prior posts, the democrats should not underestimate these claims from the right. Yes, the claim that Barack Obama is the anti-christ is patently absurd — but it is a patently absurd belief that millions of Americans believe. Whether it is their racism by another name or just plain stupidity is really of no consequence in the end — the fact is they believe that Obama is the anti-christ in their heart of hearts and will vote for McCain.  Another four years of Bush and just general stupidity (see McCain’s interview on radio caracol on September 17, 2008) is something I think most Americans could do without.

The anti-christ claim is both an indictment on the clear racism that some portions of our society have against Obama as well as a call to action for Obama to start getting down and dirty and calling McCain out. It is clear that McCain and company have taken their gloves off; it’s time Obama and company to start doing the same.

Here’s an example of an email I received about Barack Obama being the anti-christ:

This will make you re-think : A Trivia question in Sunday School: How long is the beast allowed to have authority in Revelations? Guess the Answer? Revelations Chapter 13 tells us it is 42 months, and you know what that is. Almost a four year term to a Presidency. All I can say is Lord,  Have Mercy on us!!!!!! According to The Book of Revelations the anti-Christ is: The anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal….the  prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything. Is it OBAMA?? I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to post this as many times as you can! Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet…do it!  I refuse to take a chance on this unknown candidate who came out of nowhere. GOD BLESS AMERICA

  1. Found this site that goes into detail about the origin of Obama’s name as found in the Greek and Hebrew concordanceand other references..very interesting

    What does it really mean?
    Barack Hussein Obama’s name means:
    Barack/baraq/barak/barach: meaning: A glitterning sword or, barach/barak meaning: to kneel, and bless God, vice versa (the man), by euphemism, to curse God, or the King by treason; to blaspheme. Which also represents the serpent and the Constellation by that name. His birthday August 4th – Sign Leo

    Hussein: meaning a Lion

    Obama/Obamah: meaning the eye of Baal

    I checked it out and Obama is in the King James Bible..a place of worship, high place of Baal

  2. Good analysis. Thanks

    Frankly NEITHER candidate is the anti-Christ, but if you want to quote chapter and verse, look at Rev. 13:3 about a massive head wound (McCain), and Rev. 13:13 fire from the sky (warhead missiles) then John McCain and his pro-war stance is MUCH closer to the description of the Anti-Christ than Obama ever will be.

  3. Rev 13:3
    I’m don’t mean to make you look unlearned christian liberal, but you better understand the head of the beast that was wounded. Which can be found in Isaiah 51:9.
    As for Rev 13:13, THE FIRE, makes reference to great wonders which means an indication especially the supernatural, miracle, sign, token, wonder, which also indicates a mark to signify…that Greek word would be semeion……..THAT FIRE WOULD BE A LITERAL FIRE AS CAUSED BY LIGHTENING…….

  4. Oh, they did this in the last election too. It’s just freaked out people freaking out.

    Sometimes I think they all want the world to end because then they won’t have to deal with it all anymore.

    I grew up in a society like this, so I know exactly what it’s all about.

    If the world ends it does. And if it’s revelation, fine. If it’s not just deal with it.

  5. P.S. It’s not racism. It’s religious fear. Two totally different things, though some manipulators throughout history have brought the two together to suit their hidden agendas.

  6. As a Christian I would like to believe that means disciple of Christ, for I believe in the WORD of the living God. I will not be voting for either Obama or McCain for President. I am 49 years old and the only time I ever voted was when my mother made me vote for Reagan, I did not want to, but I thought I better be obedient to my Mother, for it is a Commandment of God. I am very interested in history and the politics that go with it, but God lifts up Kings and pulls them down. I believe the people’s vote does not matter, especially to those who want to rule the world. “They” give you two candidates because they would like to see who you deem most popular, but the popular votes does not count. True believers in God do not believe the world is coming to and end, but that there will be a new heavens and a new earth, but that is not until after the 1000 year reign of Christ. To all those that believe in the second coming, Jesus will rule the Earth as King of Kings and will be bringing the saints with him; those who have died in him and those who are alive and remain., The first time Jesus came he was rejected. He did not at that time come to rule the world as King, but came as a Lamb slain for sinners, for all those who believe he is the son of God life ever lasting. For God wrath is revealed from heaven against all who know the truth and hold that truth in unrighteousness. For evil will be defeated, and comes to it’s end, but first iniquity must come to a full. For his vesture is dipped in blood for the great day of God almighty…………..For we fight not against flesh and blood, but against the powers of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places, against the rulers of this world…As for the son of perdition his lineage can be found in Psalms 87. As for the link I find it to be quite accurate……….

  7. I have a long explanation of the meaning of the Lottery numbers the Marks of the Beast of Obama who is the Antichrist.
    The Antichrist must be unmasked. The Revelation of the Marks of the Beast sent by heaven will do that.
    Our only job is to spread it everywhere.
    Take this and spread it to the world.
