Robert Jeffress: Obama Is “Paving the Way for … the Antichrist”

Posted on November 6th, 2012 2:59pm by Tim Rogers

An alert FrontBurnervian points us to the news that First Baptist Dallas’ pastor, Robert Jeffress, knows how to generate headlines. From his Sunday sermon:

“I want you to hear me tonight, I am not saying that President Obama is the Antichrist, I am not saying that at all. One reason I know he’s not the Antichrist is the Antichrist is going to have much higher poll numbers when he comes. President Obama is not the Antichrist. But what I am saying is this: the course he is choosing to lead our nation is paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist.

You must admit: the line about the Antichrist’s poll numbers is a good one.

Bishop Al Mohler Calls the Election “An Evangelical Disaster”

So reports Barb Haggerty on NPR:

Many religious conservatives thought this might be the year of an evangelical comeback, when voters would throw President Obama out because of his support of same-sex marriage and abortion, and his health plan’s birth control mandate. It didn’t work out that way.

“I think this was an evangelical disaster,” says Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky.

Is “the evangelical moment” over?
