First up, we have Rick Perry’s pastor who has said that Oprah is ushering in the antichrist. (ht) Oh, and look it’s out favorite Mike Bickle, of IHOP fame, and no, not pancakes.
Bickle: The Harlot Babylon is preparing the nations to receive the Antichrist. The Harlot Babylon will be a religion of affirmation, toleration, no absolutes, a counterfeit justice movement. They will feed the poor, have humanitarian projects, inspire acts of compassion for all the wrong reasons. They won’t know it, beloved they will be sincere, many of them, but their sincerity will not in any way lessen the impact of their deception. The fact that they are sincere does not make their deception less damaging. I believe that one of the main pastors, as a forerunner to the Harlot movement, it’s not the Harlot movement yet, is Oprah. She is winsome, she is kind, she is reasonable, she is utterly deceived, utterly deceived. A classy woman, a cool woman, a charming woman, but has a spirit of deception and she is one of the clear pastors, forerunners to the Harlot movement.
Remember, Bickle is endorsing Rick’s The Response (website), well, actually more than endorsing. Speaking of sponsors and those likely to be seen in Texas soon, Lou Engle is taking up Pat Robertson’s mantle, in saying that the tornadoes in Joplin were God’s punishment.
Following that, we have Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann both signing the ‘Family Leader Vow’ from Bob Vander Plaats. There are some issues with this ‘vow‘. First, it is anti-Islamic. There is a difference between being pro-Christian (not sure I would even describe it like that) and being anti-something. Other things too, but you can judge for yourselves. I haven’t posted much on Dominionism/Christian Reconstructionism lately, and nor do I intend to make it a regular habit, but it is something which people should be concerned about. Indeed, since before 2008, these various groups have done their best to find a viable candidate, which they prophesied was Sarah Palin, to run on their platform. Now, they have two who have declared themselves with one waiting in the wings.
I long for the days when Mitch Daniels was considering running. I like him, but don’t tell anyone.
