The day before Election Day and saw an interesting picture meme on Facebook that was sent out on one of the Christian groups. I bring it up because it happens every election year and it never stops being comical. Here is that picture:
Despite the fact that Barack Obama is a Christian and Mitt Romney is a Mormon (which many evangelicals don’t consider to be a sect of Christianity), evangelicals were convinced that Jesus favored Romney in this election and that Obama was the “Anti-Christ.”
I also find it comical that Revelations was never intended to be taken literally and the belief that it somehow predicts the End Times is relatively new. Among Bible “scholars” the Book of Revelation is widely known to be a poetic telling of events that already had happened at the time it was written with the Anti-Christ being Nero Caesar. Still, I decided to have some fun with this anyway and posted this comment to some of the Christian comments left on the meme which enforced the belief that we are living in the End Times:
“I’ve been waiting 2000 years. What exactly did Jesus mean by “soon” and “within a generation”? Call me crazy, but I don’t think he’s coming back.”
As far as the election stuff goes, evangelicals said similar stuff four years ago and now four years later, not much has really changed. If Obama really was the Anti-Christ, why would he have bothered to wait and take the chance of losing re-election? Why wouldn’t he have taken us to darkness right in his first term? Oh, I guess he was just lolling us into a false sense of security, right? Too comical.
