Chuck Baldwin on war with Syria and Idiot "preachers"Submitted by SIERRAHPBT on Tue, 09/10/2013 - 11:21
Here we go again. Every time the United States gets ready to launch a military attack against a Middle Eastern country I hear TV and radio preachers talking about how right it is, because we are fulfilling some kind of prophetic scripture that will bring about the Second Coming of Christ. To that I say BALDERDASH!
In the first place, all of these preemptive, unprovoked attacks by the warmongers in Washington, D.C., are NOT RIGHT. They are egregiously evil. These attacks are killing tens--or even hundreds--of thousands of innocent men, women, and children with no moral, legal, or constitutional justification. There is NOTHING RIGHT ABOUT IT.
In the second place, man can no more bring about the Second Coming of Christ than he could bring about the first coming. God will send His Son back to this earth when He, God, is ready. No man or government of men can do one thing to assist or hinder it. What arrogance to think that we mortals could do anything, one way or another, to dispatch God's Son from Heaven. What a joke!
All of this infatuation with foreign interventionism, nation-building, and using US troops as some sort of global cops will eventually be the death knell of this country. It seems that many people in Washington--and in America's pulpits--have forgotten that America needs God; He doesn't need us.
