Scott Lively is no stranger to controversy, he is perhaps best know for his work with the Ugandan government in promoting a law that has come to be known as the “Kill the Gays” law. Both before and since he has been a vocal supporter of criminalizing the sexuality of homosexuals calling them the “agents of America’s moral decline.”
Appearing Wednesday on the Trunews online radio show he announced that Barack Obama is the Antichrist! Of course the Bible says that the whole world will fall in line to follow the Antichrist and Lively sees this happening with the President. Apparently, at any moment now the TEApublicans will fall into line behind the President and give him anything he asks for. Of course, everyone knows that the rest of the world adores him, they are just chomping at the bit to do his bidding.
Lively predicts that in 2015 he will cancel all of the world’s debts and broker a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians bringing peace to the Mid East at long last. Once this is accomplished he will establish a one world government and economy establishing secular humanism as the only religion for the world. Quite a feat for a man who cannot get the TEApublicans in Congress to give him an up or down vote on a federal judge.
Lively foresees a regional war breaking out that causes a global economic collapse something that makes no sense since a wartime economy almost always booms, there are weapons and ammunition to be manufactured, tanks and war planes. Economies don’t collapse during a war, they grow. In this war though he sees Barack Obama, who he names only as the current leader of the greatest superpower in the world today, riding to the rescue and gaining the adoration of the world.
He says, “So at the right time, after there’s been enough pain, what happens is the Antichrist—I won’t name any names here but he is heading the largest superpower of the world today—steps in at the right time.” Going on to say that he will simply declare that all debts are eliminated and we are to all celebrate in a “global jubilee.” At this point, not wanting to miss out on the fun of being in on this prophesy, Rick Wiles, the host, jumps in saying that he predicted exactly this himself right there on the show, conveniently in 2008. Let’s see what was it that happened in 2008 that would have made him see the Antichrist coming…could it have been the election of Barack Obama? Lively even predicts an exact date that this “jubilee” will occur, September 23, 2015. Such uncanny accuracy!
Lively goes on to ask, “What is the issue that God is using to divide the sheep and the goats right now? It’s not whether Jesus Christ is Lord. It’s where do you stand on homosexuality? You know why?” Going on to answer his own question he says, “He gave us the warnings about that. From Genesis to Revelation, he has given us the advance notice that this issue portends the End Times and that when you see these things happen you’ll know that is the context that you are in.”
As incomprehensible as all of this convoluted “logic” is, what he says next was absolutely staggering. Apparently, the last hope for the world lay in none other than Vladimir Putin’s hands! According to Lively his new anti gay laws are the blueprint for the world to follow because Putin is the last world leader left who is standing for what God demands of us. “We don’t want to gloss over the problems that we have with Mr. Putin,” he said, “but by the same token he’s the only world leader capable of standing up to the West and he is championing the traditional marriage and Christian values regarding the central moral issue of our time that no one else has the capability to do what he’s doing.”
So Vladimir Putin is by Mr. Lively’s calculations the last hope for the world and Christianity. Those are some mighty big shoes to fill one would hope that “Shirtless” Vlad is up to the job. Indeed one might wonder does he even want the job or know that God has chosen him to save the world from the evil that is Barack Obama.
