Satan is now being socially accepted nowadays, setting the stage for the man of sin, ie., the anti-christ. Generations past would never have accepted what's going on now, but the Scriptures must be fulfilled.

"A video posted to social media informing Christians that mall retailer Spencer Gifts sells t-shirts bearing messages such as “Let’s Summon Demons” and “Let’s Sacrifice Toby” is causing a stir, being viewed hundreds of thousands of times.

Marcus Rogers, an active Christian and aspiring pastor in the Chicago area, recently recorded live inside of a shopping mall in Illinois after deciding to investigate a post he saw online. He provided footage as proof that the store offers shirts that glorify Satanism and the occult.

One shirt available in the store depicts young children listening to vinyl records, with the words “Devil’s Music Sing-Along” above their heads, and horns and a tail on the word “music.” Another shirt features a graphic of a boy lying on the ground next to blocks that read “666” and a black cat, as a young girl holds a knife above her head. The t-shirt reads “Activities for Children” and “Let’s Sacrifice Toby."

The antichrist is not going to be that easy to spot though, have to remember, he wont be doing anything evil or even immoral at first, he will likely be the total opposite...so he can fool more people into believing he is Christ returned.

"Man cannot comprehend the existence of his errors, when too deeply immersed in them."

In other words, you cannot see what is adversarial, if you are sitting in the seat of error within the Church.

The lawless man of sin is within all people and he will be revealed in all people in the great division.

The lawless one.

Lawlessness in disrespecting the laws of God. It is always funny to see lawless Christians speaking of a lawless Messiah that they are waiting for, and those same lawless Christians wonder who is going to follow the lawless Messiah?

The lawless ones?

Couldn't be that the lawless will follow the lawless one could it?

LOL, I see people preaching lawlessness everyday waiting on a lawless one to come.

Oh for heaven's sake. This stuff is just sick humor based on Disney's Toby Tyler and the Little Golden Books.

It's taking a bit of treacly Americana and mocking it. Not to everyone's taste, but to try to twist it to make it seem as if people are actually promoting human sacrifice or that the anti-christ is on its way is an example of something that makes some Christians sound as ridiculous as the idea of a devil with horns and tails.

This is one of those things that makes some Christians just sound ridiculous.

If you're brave enough to open your eyes in front of a mirror, you will see who is being deceived.

Not that I'm very religious but I doubt Satan will present himself in such an obvious manner.

I'm sure at the height of WWII and Nazi Germany, it must have felt like the anti-christ had arrived. The Spenser Gifts (which I like) shirts are akin to simply making money.... LeVay, for example, primary motive is money.

Of course.

Perhaps we should be more concerned with the knowledge that these products are probably being made by people in third-world countries who earn pennies a day.
