Syrian End Times

Oh Magog! Why End-Times Buffs Are Freaking Out About Syria In early 2012, best-selling novelist Joel Rosenberg came to Capitol Hill for a meeting with an unidentified member of Congress to discuss the end of the world. “I thought the topic was going to be the possible coming war between Israel and Iran,” Rosenberg explained …

The New Apostles

I wish it were fiction: Meet The Radical Evangelical Army Behind Rick Perry The main divergence between the New Apostolic Reformation and other Christian fundamentalist sects is their differing views of how End Times will go down. New Apostles reject the traditional fundamentalist belief that born-again believers will be lifted up in the Rapture. Instead, …

Armies of God

Singularly terrifying must read from the Texas Observer. On September 28, 2009, at 1:40 p.m., God’s messengers visited Rick Perry. On this day, the Lord’s messengers arrived in the form of two Texas pastors, Tom Schlueter of Arlington and Bob Long of San Marcos, who called on Perry in the governor’s office inside the state …

Left Behind Pets

Not a joke: Who are these Volunteer Pet Caretakers and how do I know they’ll take good care of my pets? Most Volunteer Pet Caretakers fit this description: They are atheist or another non-Christian religion. They love animals enough to register with us even though they do not believe there will be a Rapture (or …

May 21 Primer

A Q&A with Harold Camping: Q: Who gets to ascend to heaven? A: Those who accept Christ as the messiah. Even Jews are invited, says Camping, but only if they accept Christ – which would seem to make them no longer Jewish. Q: How many will be Raptured? A: Campbell estimates 200 million. The remaining …

O’Donnell vs. Beck

Spent the morning looking into books by Nephilim-heads – people who think aliens are demons. A scary lot, but a pretty inevitable jumping off point from End Times hysteria. So I bought one. There’s one reason my book’s not astoundingly successful – as compared to the Christianist/Alien books, which sell very well – because I …

May 21, 2011

Really good mini-documentary from CNN – no reporter mucking it up, just letting the subject speak. More of this, mainstream news: Background: By God’s grace and tremendous mercy, He is giving us advanced warning as to what He is about to do. On Judgment Day, May 21st, 2011, this 5-month period of horrible torment will …

Behold a White Horse

Via Huffington Post: “We are at the place where the Constitution hangs in the balance,” Beck told Bill O’Reilly on November 14, 2008, just after President Obama’s election. “I feel the Constitution is hanging in the balance right now, hanging by a thread unless the good Americans wake up.” The Constitution is hanging by a …

Jack Van Impe Ministries

I don’t generally watch much TV at 2 in the morning, but I couldn’t sleep last night and turned it on and there was the Jack Van Impe Ministries show on channel 13.  I’ve seen their faces but never bothered to watch a show, but this is pretty terrible End Times stuff, made the worse …
