The Eschaton Arrives

It is no longer necessary to listen to Harold Camping, Jehovah’s Witnesses, or any other religious figure or organization to find out the date of the End of All Things. Just look at Newsweek: it looks like it’s going to be Monday:

Maybe this is what the Mayans had in mind?

I misunderstood—I thought the arrival of the Eschaton was the demise of Newsweek.

I agree: if women are allowed to try to save Europe, it will definitely be the Eschaton.  They’re not usually allowed to try anything…..

Newsweek still exits?  Who’d've thunk it?

When will our Pravda-media stop gushing like pre-teen girls at their first boy band concert and do their job?  Oh…right…the next time we get a Republican Administration (if ever).

When I think of the 47% I am reminded of the refrain from REM’s song, “It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.”  Other things that come to mind are Billy Joel’s song “Allentown” as well as the writings of Orwell; “Animal Farm” and “1984” in particular.

On a theological note, does the Newsweek cover rise to the level of blasphemy?  Does anyone care? ...anyone ...Bueller? confused

This is disgusting, and so is the fact that this man has been sworn in as President again.  We pray for him by name in church every Sunday.  Perhaps some day he will hear God’s voice.  With God all things are possible.

The cult of Obama began in 2008, with hysteria, women folk fainting in the audience, males legs tingling, etc.

As Newsbusters notes, it’s merely replaying former Newsweek editor Evan Thomas’s assertion in 2009 that “In a way, Obama’s standing above the country, above — above the world. He’s sort of God.”

Many words in the English language have undergone a horrible transformation in meaning via the modern culture.  For example,

Gay: used to mean happy, lighthearted.  Now means homosexual male.

Postal: used to be an adjective to describe a specific service.  Now means going stark raving mad and killing people

Leader: used to mean someone who united a group in a lofty goal or ambition.  Now a term of affection for someone hell bent to destroy the greatest country the world has ever known and who unites no one in anything except hate for productive, sucessful people.

If I were President Obama, I would be seeing my doctor about having my gut checked for worms! Acts 11:20-23

I know that there were many who, in the 1930s and 1940s, were certain that Hitler was the Antichrist. Now, however…

Well, whoever the Antichrist is, the conclusion is all in God’s hands. Dear Father God, protect us all, in the holy name of your Son, Jesus.

He wasn’t the Antichrist.  He was an Antichrist, and a warm-up for the Antichrist.
