Let us laugh at some Christian nutters. The End Times tag should be a fruitful source.
Dr Cindy Dillard, a psychotherapist, blogs at Remnant Refuge, about being part of the Remnant of Christians, who will be Saved. She is concerned about even these blessed ones, God’s servants: If the Flock remains befuddled and scattered, we are hardly in right form to take on the Great Battle. Fortunately she has a solution: she exhorts us to find true Christians, and pray together. We are … at the moment of departure. Climb aboard now or be left behind.
Jim Gallagher is pastor of Calvary Chapel. There is little doubt, we are living in the last days. The State of Israel, the climate in the Middle East, the rise of immorality being accepted as good, all point to the imminent return of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. The one question that remains is, are you ready should He come back today? Oops, “immorality being accepted as good”- does he mean Homosexuality? Under that tag, we find the likes of “The Biblical False Prophet has arrived”.
But Jim says something moderately sensible: it is important to live with Christ as Saviour and Lord, rather than obsess about end time prophecies. “No-one shall know the day or the hour.”
Now the End Begins reports that “Obama” is the friend of spiritual darkness. My COL here (Cackle out loud) was that the exorcism at the Satanic black mass on 21 September would be “toned down to comply with state health laws”. Why bother about an event for 88 people? He scrabbles around desperately. The Disney film Maleficent is evidence the Wicked One is coming. An American B&Q equivalent is embracing Sharia law. The proof is the colour of their logo, the same orange as B&Q’s.
So far, so silly, but Fuel for Faith is actually harmful. Americans should support Israel against the Palestinians because its “re-gathering” is a sign-perhaps the sign-that the “Day of the Lord” is not far off.
Todd Strandberg said something sensible- I’ve always found it unproductive to speculate about the identity of the Antichrist– then spoiled it, speculating that the False Prophet of Revelation may be Pope Francis. The clue is his popularity. And the leader of the Armies of Gog and Magog may be Vladimir Putin.
Emerald Eye-Opener exhorts us to Become the pawn on [God’s] chessboard. Deliver your message before Darkness falls.
Bible Believer’s Journal (as if he were the only one) tags a post railing against Evangelicals in favour of equal marriage. Why “End Times”? I suppose the clue is in the title- “The Social Gospel is getting stronger”. Well, the Social Gospel is about caring for the poor, as well as not being beastly to gay people. Unsure, I asked, and he quoted 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
Fewer laughs than I had hoped.
