Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress warned thousands in his congregation that the leadership of President Barack Obama would pave the way for the rise of the Antichrist.

Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas warned thousands in his congregation that re-elected President Barack Obama would lead to the rise of the Antichrist, according to an article in The Christian Post. Although Jeffress clearly stated that Obama himself was not the Antichrist, Jeffress explained, “The course he is choosing to lead our nation is paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist.”

Jeffress continued, “It is time for Christians to stand up and to push back against this evil that is overtaking our nation.”

This past weekend, Jeffress continued his discussion of the end times, proclaiming that during the last seven years of the tribulation, America as we know it will end as freedom of worship, commerce, and speech will end. But, even though Jeffress admits he’s not sure when the end will come, Americans can delay the end by “standing up for righteousness and sharing the Gospel.”

“Yes, America is eventually going to collapse, but we’re trying to delay the decay of America by standing up for righteousness so that we as Christians can have a little bit longer to perform our real task of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible. That’s our job,” said Jeffress.

“If the purpose of your life is that of so many Christians — peace, prosperity, pleasure, the avoidance of pain — then you have every reason to be depressed because the truth is your taxes are probably going to go up which means you’re going to have less money; it means health care may become more inconvenient for you to obtain; it means that you and I may start suffering real rather than imaginary persecution for our faith. If your life is self-focused, there’s a lot to be disturbed about.”

    The guy is just standing up for what he believes in with his platform, no different than Obama is. This isn’t about attacking one group of people or religion. Obama clearly favors big government socialistic leaning views and supports same set marriage and abortion. Christian pastors disagree with these views and they should. This isn’t 2000 bc just like science isn’t bc. Faith and gods revelation have evolved just like scientific theory. But certain principles hold true like the sacredness of life and marriage as well as the commandments. He’s just standing up for his values and beliefs, which in America, thank god, he has a right to do.
