Some people are gullible enough to believe anything.

Are we going to apply the rule of showing respect to our elected leaders with regards to President-elect Obama?

Sorry, but I don't believe that he is THE Anti-Christ, he definitely has Anti-Christian policies. The real Son of Perdition will have even more mass appeal and the world will be a lot more Anti-Christian in general.

I've read an article written by a Greek Orthodox priest that even the Mark of the Beast will literally be 666 (no fancy tricks to hide the number) because by the time the *Abomination of Desolation* comes mankind (notice I wrote "mankind") will be so depraved that we will accept it hook-line-and-sinker. eek

*I resisted to use the line "Obamanation of Desolation." wink

For sure we should show President-Elect Obama respect. It is also in the Original Poster's right to ask a question. If the shoe were on the other foot, I would support another person's right to question whether or not John McCain (or any other person) was the Anti-Christ.

I too don't think he's THE anti-Christ - but - one thing that did strike me was how many people fell under his influence through his speeches (of course he doesn't write them, only reads them) and such. Kind of helps me realize how so many Germans fell under Hitler's spell.

Seems like we'll be for a rocky four years ;(

Don't know whether it's you or not, but I do think the idea that he is the antichrist is unsupportable.

There is evidence that some of his supporters are more like followers (some went door-to-door campaigning giving what amounted to testimonies of how they "came to Obama" much like people "come to Jesus").

I was horrified on Monday night when (then) Senator Obama gave the finger to Senator McCain as he was thanking him for a good campaign (Drudge had the photo up most of yesterday). He did the same thing to Senator Clinton after he won the primaries. But if he is really that arrogant he will earn himself a come down.

It is appropriate to pray for him, and to respect the office. Support him in the things you agree with and fight with him over the things we as Christians cannot tolerate (life issues, etc.).

Since this type of thread can quickly go downhill I'm going to give myself the last word.
