In his latest book Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress says Barack Obama’s policies are paving the way for the anti-Christ.

It’s not the first time he’s made such statements.
 In November 2012 Pastor Jeffries indicated that President Obama’s reelection would lead to the “reign of the antichrist,”

BP News reported:

Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress defended statements he made in his forthcoming book charging President Barack Obama’s policies have “paved the way” for the coming usurpation of religious liberties and moral law by the Antichrist.

Critics balked at naming Obama and the Antichrist in the same sentence. But noted theologians said Jeffress’ example, when read in context, properly frames end-time prophecies in light of current events.

“I don’t sit around in my office thinking up controversies. But I do use controversy to shine the light on Jesus Christ,” Jeffress, the pastor of the 11,000-member First Baptist Church of Dallas, said Thursday (Jan. 9).

Jeffress knew the quotes issued by the publishing company for his new book, “Perfect Ending: Why your eternal future matters today,” would be provocative, but he approved their use in the press release. No stranger to controversy, Jeffress drew attention during the 2012 presidential elections when he referred to Mormonism as a cult. And, on the eve of the election, he warned his congregation against voting for Obama. Jeffress stands by his comments, arguing each ensuing media eruption allowed him to share the Gospel from a national platform.

With the Jan. 6 release of a press statement by Worthy Publishing, Jeffress has come under fire yet again. Using current events to illustrate how a future world ruler could easily subvert moral law, Jeffress named names.

“Although President Obama is certainly not the Antichrist, his policies are paving the way for the Antichrist,” Jeffress stated in the book.

President of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary Paige Patterson said, “I understand what Jeffress is saying.”

Obama is a potpourri of all radical ideals wrapped into one.
"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Unfortunately we don't have anyone who seems capable of taking him down.

As the Anti-Christ is foreordained, don't every president's policies "pave the way" to the Anti-Christ, at least in the sense that with each additional president we are that much closer, temporally, to the time of the Anti-Christ?

It will be very important the anti-Christ and anti-Satan are contemporaries.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
