April 04, 2010 — In his weekly address, President Obama strangely introduces a war theme into a message ostensibly about a holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ…y’know, the Prince of Peace.

Mr. President, Easter has nothing to do with war. Please stop trying to make Jesus fit with your outlook on war and international relations. You just cheapen both.

  2. People’s perceptions of the term anti-Christ are varied, but one could make the case that this film – of an address by Barack Obama suggesting a connection between Jesus Christ and war – recorded the generally-held perception of anti-Christ. Extremely disturbing.

    • The only mention of anti-Christ in the Scripture comes in the letters of John from 2000 years ago. Addressing the Believers THEN he writes:

      Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
      For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

      And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides for ever.
      Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time….
      I have not written to you because you know not the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

      Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.
      Whosoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father: (but) he that acknowledges the Son has the Father also….

      Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
      Hereby you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
      And every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
      You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
      1John2

      And now I beseech you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
      And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.
      For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

      2John1

      The spirit of antichrist is already leading this world to WWIII/Armageddon – Masada II – Holocaust II – Nuclear version – the A-bomb-i-Nation that makes desolation – the long foretold Judgment by Fire.
