That which is adversarial has its seat in the Churches.

I agree with this. The Constitution was written by men who were heavily influence by Christian doctrine. The form is sound and America has been blessed by it. But the past 50 years we have been slowly moving away from this ideal. The slop is toward an immoral culture bent on doing anything that contradicts Godís Word.

People in this country are richer than ever yet are one of the most unethical, unhappy, and ungrateful lot on this planet.

This is not exactly accurate, do a bit more research.

I don't necessarily agree with his ways but I don't think he's hateful in the slightest.

Agreed. The stage is set for the soon-coming man of sin, the son of perdition known as the antichrist. This world leader will captivate and seduce false religions and the world alike because they don't have the love of the One and ONLY true God in them.

I imagine when this antichrist DOES come, if we are still around, there will probably be numerous threads debating whether this person is the AC or not, some will recognize it, some will say they are crazy, he could not be the AC for such and such reason.

I dont think we are anywhere close to this happening though, too many people are expecting it, Jesus said these things would happen when NO ONE expects, like a thief in the night, so more than likely if LOTS of people are screaming 'the end is near'...its probably not even close, instead it will really happen when hardly anyone is talking about it, when the 'times' do not look like 'end times'.

Again, Jesus said that we would know the season of His return. Jesus will come as a thief in the night to those who are not watching.

Matthew 24
[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
[39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. [These verses are speaking of the Rapture]
[42] Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
[43] But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
[44] Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

You just need to look in the mirror, no waiting is necessary.
