Is Obama Harbinger of the AntiChrist?

Hal Lindsay, the premillenial dispensationalist fortune-teller who made his fortune telling people the world would end around 1988, thinks Obama is a harbinger of the AntiChrist. Here's a link.

If old dispensationalists won't die, I wish they would at least fade away.

Every time I think I'm done with the messianic and antimessianic interpretations of Obama, something else comes along... :)

Love the comment on old dispensationalists. I was recently in Kenya and, believe me, they don't think he is the antichrist.

I think it's more likely that George W Bush is the harbinger of the AntiChrist. Look at the pattern of deceit and propaganda used by his administration, his policy of preemptive war and use of torture, the corruption of Republicans in power, and the way the Christian Right worship him. The morality and ethical leadership of America has been destroyed in the eyes of the world, and our Christian witness as well.

"i think that George W Bush is the harbinger of the AntiChrist..."

in the original post Obama is being referred to as the harbinger of the AntiChrist.

correct me if I sm misunderstanding, but harbinger is generally defined as a person or thing that forshadows or fortells the coming of someone or something. so it doesn't nesessarily have to be that the harbinger is the antichrist, rather they are the usher. perfectly good honourable intentions haven't always had perfect fairytail endings. a harbinger, may be completely unaware that they are the catalyst,
i am rambling...it is nearly 4am past bedtime. just some thoughts anyway

Obama is not the Antichrist nor the Harbinger of the Antichrist. I think Reagan was a harbinger of the Antichrist. He got mainstream churches to reject the Kingdom of God for earthly political power. Then we had George W. Bush, who as another harbinger of the Antichrist, brought 80% of evangelicals into the fold of the kigndom of the Antichrist. Now are getting a relief from this with the common sense election of Barack Obama. The next Repubican may well be the Antichrist, and the right-wing church will buy into it, and bring the torture chambers out into public, then the Tribulation will begin, led by the Southern Baptists and the Pentecostals and the Republican party all under the direction of Satan.
