Well, just in case you haven't been following the apocalypse theater of your selected leaders, there's this little article that was brought to my attention by a Facebook friend, call her P.H.:
Now, for those of you who've read Dr. Scott D. de Hart's and my Yahweh the Two-Faced God, this should sound familiar. There we explored the possibility that all prophecies are self-fulling in nature, or at least, can be engineered to be so. In that regard, we pointed out how the "theological system" of dispensationalists like Cyrus Scofield, Hal Lindsey and others, was a late doctrinal creation of the nineteenth century, with suspicious 'backing" from oil and banking men, and how it was suspiciously like the geopolitical theories of the nineteenth century British geopolitical theorist, Sir Halford Mackinder. It was a system of "prophetic interpretation," in other words, tailor-made for the long-term geopolitical agendas of the Anglo-American elite.
We also pointed out how this apocalypse-seeking "Christianity" had deeply penetrated the upper echelons of American politics. Well, in case you had any doubts, this little article spells it out:
"Bush believed the time had now come for that battle, telling Chirac:
“This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins”…
"There can be little doubt now that President Bush’s reason for launching the war in Iraq was, for him, fundamentally religious. He was driven by his belief that the attack on Saddam’s Iraq was the fulfilment of a Biblical prophesy in which he had been chosen to serve as the instrument of the Lord.
"And British Prime Minister Tony Blair long-time mentor, advisor and confidante said:
“'Tony’s Christian faith is part of him, down to his cotton socks. He believed strongly at the time, that intervention in Kosovo, Sierra Leone – Iraq too – was all part of the Christian battle; good should triumph over evil, making lives better.'
"Mr Burton, who was often described as Mr Blair’s mentor, says that his religion gave him a 'total belief in what’s right and what’s wrong', leading him to see the so-called War on Terror as 'a moral cause'…
"Anti-war campaigners criticised remarks Mr Blair made in 2006, suggesting that the decision to go to war in Iraq would ultimately be judged by God.
"Bill Moyers reports that the organization Christians United for Israel - led by highly-influential Pastor John C. Hagee - is a universal call to all Christians to help factions in Israel fund the Jewish settlements, throw out all the Palestinians and lobby for a pre-emptive invasion of Iran. All to bring Russia into a war against us causing World War III followed by Armageddon, the Second Coming and The Rapture. See this and this."
We could add to the list that the article gives of other influential politicians buying into this biblical barbeque nonsense in the name of their "God of Love" - former National Security Advisor General Brent Scowcroft and former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger also bought into it, and even Ronald Reagan himself was bamboozled by these baptistic snake-oil salesmen into accepting their genocidal dispensationalism.
Do my words seem harsh? They're not half as harsh as this silly doctrine - which remember, as we pointed out in Yahweh the Two-Faced God, isn't even part of the historical deposit of the Christian faith at all - for this doctrine and its murderous followers have precisely genocide in their hearts. It's time for the rest of us to call a spade a spade and genocidal agendas genocidal agendas. After all, they have clearly stated what they teach, and what they believe, and what they want to have happen... and there is no other word for it than genocide.
So the next time a political candidate stands up and proudly proclaims their "faith in Jesus," better ask him or her if that Jesus is the Rapturing Nineteenth century Jesus of Hal Lindsey, Cyrus Scofield, James Haggee and all the rest of these unctuous "born-again bible-believing" nutters. Make no mistake, these people are sick, twisted, and in the name of their book-god, their hearts are full of murder, and they, just as surely as their opposite numbers in the two other Yahwisms, are leading the world to ruin. These are stupid vainglorious people, so convinced that their interpretation of a two-thousand year old book is the word of God, that they are willing to allow the bombs to fly and the radioactive fallout to enshroud the earth and to kill billions of people, just to prove their book-god, and their own silly interpretations of it, correct.
