Should Christians, Hindu, Jews, etc hail Obama as the Messiah as the Nation of Islam suggests we do?

This video is very telling:
YouTube - Louis Farrakhan Declares Barack Obama The Messiah

The Nation of Islam has declared Obama is the Messiah and Savior.

Last time I checked, Jesus Christ Himself said:

"At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time.

"So if anyone tells you, 'There he is, out in the desert,' do not go out; or, 'Here he is, in the inner rooms,' do not believe it. For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather."

Matthew 24:23-28



Are other Christians (like myself) disgusted and appalled that Obama would be hailed as the "Messiah"???

I am telling you. If this false Christ is elected, some people will definitely have their position that Obama = Messiah legitimized. And worse, the churches will be persecuted by the Obama and his anti-Christian Congressional leadership.

Pray and VOTE, so this man won't be elected. That will end the hopes of Islamists and other stupid Christians who believe anything, to think Obama is Jesus Christ's re-incarnation!

It does'nt matter who gets elected. Mankind is a failure at governing themselves anyway. I have to assume you believe in Jesus Christ since you posted this in the Christian forum. Just support the King Christ Jesus and his Kingdom (Government). His government is the only one that matters anyway. The early Christians never supported the Roman government at that time and they were happy people. It did'nt matter what Ceasar was in power back then and it should'nt matter today.

Having said that, then yes, the entire planet Religious/Secular is viewing this man through "rose coloured glasses" and believing that somehow he is the second coming of Jesus Christ. Sadly it's the same imperfect human tendancy of putting a charismatic preacher in power which has made most of the popular American Televangelist Mega-Churches. These men are imperfect themselves and when they crash and burn as they always do, then many people's faith is shattered. Why????? Because they built their house on a sandy foundation and not a Rock. Support God's government by Christ Jesus and nothing else should matter.

The one thing you can count on is that all human government on Earth is a complete and utter failure no matter how sincere the politician and his ideas.

Wow. Glenn Beck said pretty much the exact same thing last night. I agree!

That's funny. The Nation of Islam I know would not like a Barak Obama because he is half black and his other half is the "devil". I have to say, that scares me because the Nation is not practicing what they preach.

BluePacific got it right.

This Obama campaign should wake Christians up to the fact that it's not the election that should trouble them, but the fact that their faith is shakier than jello during a California quake. When people go crazy about their fear of Obama, I ask them if they're still a Christian, because they don't sound like a believer.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that all might be judged who have not believed the truth, but have found pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thes 2:11-12)

I actually love this Obama love affair because it definitely tells me that this world is ripe when the anti-christ comes. I use to say to myself how can an entire people follow one man. Well the Obamamania definitely answers my question. When people are searching and are desperate they will follow.

Neither one of them has said anything even close to this about Obama.

Your prejudice and judging is shining like a city on a hill!

Why should Christians hail Obama as the Messiah? We have a Messiah and His name is Jesus Christ.

If this false Christ is elected,
Has Obama claimed to be the Messiah?? God bless.
