That didn't take long.
As soon as Barack Obama was re-elected President of the United States by an overwhelming margin, we started hearing the whispers. Could he be the Antichrist? While no one came out and said it (that I know of), many were thinking about the possibility. I know because several people have asked me.
I also know people were entertaining this thought because at least one prominent evangelical openly raised the spectre of Obama's relationship to a future Antichrist. According to the Christian Post, "Robert Jeffress, senior pastor at the First Baptist Church in Dallas, made remarks on Sunday before the election that should Obama win, his victory would lead to the reign of the Antichrist.
`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,' said Jeffress." (To read the whole story, click here)
Since Obama's popular vote numbers and electoral college victory exceeded just about everyone's expectations (Nate Silver excepted), you wonder how Jeffress feels about Obama now.
