THE EVANGELICAL BLIND SPOT
By Ralph Filicchia

A majority of the 60 million evangelical and fundamentalist Christians in the country voted for Geo. W. Bush in 2004 because they believed he was the morally superior candidate.
How was he morally superior? He said he was against abortion, partial birth abortion, gay marriage, stem cell research that destroys human embryos, and for traditional values and Jesus Christ.
On those issues he was probably in tune with the majority of clear-thinking American voters. Killing babies isn’t exactly kosher with people who possess a sense of moral balance, and Jesus Christ cannot be found in the same lineup with Osama, Mao, or Saddam. If these issues were all that mattered then Geo. Bush would probably be deserving of his time in office.
Unfortunately for evangelical Christians the story didn’t end there. Christianity is not concerned only with today’s morals and issues, but also with the futures values. Christianity is a religion with a prophetic element that cannot be easily dismissed. As briefly as it can be put, the following must be understood:
Almost all evangelical and fundamentalist Christians believe that the end of this age will be dominated by one referred to as the Antichrist. This individual will be empowered by Satan and is known in Rev. 13 as the “beast from the sea” and his number is 666. This individual will for a short time become a world ruler who controls all commerce to the point where no one can buy or sell unless they have the mark of the beast on their hand or forehead. In other words–do it his way or you starve!
The point here is that in order to have this individual wield so much power, there must be, at this time, a one-world government. But you cannot have a one-world government (economy) with 150 or so nations all doing their own thing. Power must be consolidated, a perfect example being the European Union where nations are banding together supposedly for economic reasons. Already there has been mentioned the possibility of a president of this European Union. When this happens, then instead of having to control 12 or 15 individual nations, a would-be world dictator has to control only one individual. When the rest of the world is also broken up into different economic areas (some have figured this to be 10 areas) the situation then becomes ripe for one individual authority to run the whole show.
The Bible predicts this person to be the one-world dictator known as the Antichrist, Satan incarnate, who will demand to be worshiped before he makes war with the saints of God (Rev. 13:7). (If this is not true, evangelicals believe it is, and that’s what matters.)
At the present time the world is rushing headlong toward globalization and a New World Order. Trade agreements are being pushed that are detrimental to the USA but seemingly good for third world countries. Borders between countries are slowly being abolished, planned by those who want the world identified not by countries but by economic zones. This explains the reluctance on the part of the last two administrations in this country to even address the problem of illegal Mexican immigration. These manipulators are not looking out for the best interests of the people who live in the American southwest. Their main concern is the development of the coming New World Order, the merging of economic regions–and if the American people have to get short-changed in the process, so be it, as the one-world gangsters figure it will be worth it in the long run.
In the early 1990s Clinton adviser Strobe Talbott outlined that administration’s preferred approach to world affairs:
“Nationhood as we know it will be obsolete. All states will recognize a single global authority.”
A chilling statement if there ever was one. It is the equivalent of saying “Goodbye America and everything you ever stood for.” This “preferred approach” is not endemic to the Democratic Party. At the present time it is the “approach” of both parties, neither of which has been given an OK for this by the American people.
Consider the words of President Bush Sr. in his state of the union address on Jan. 29, 1991 referring to the first war with Iraq:
“We know why we’re there. We are Americans, part of something larger than ourselves. What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea, a New World Order where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind. The world can therefore seize this opportunity to fulfill the long-held promise of a New World Order.”
The universal aspirations of mankind are to free Kuwait from Saddam’s invasion ? (Says who?) The Desert Storm War was begun to advance a big idea that is more important than the small country of Kuwait ? (Whose big idea?) The world can seize this opportunity–Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait–to fulfill the long-held promise of a New World Order ? (What long-held promise?)
Let us fast-forward to the present Iraq war. We hear: “The occupation of this country, the elimination of its weapons of mass destruction, and the building of a democracy, will help keep America safe from terrorists.”
But need we go on? Can’t we see the same mentality and reasoning for the justification of this war that was used for the first Iraq war? George W. Bush was not fighting terrorism. He was pursuing the goals of the New World Order crowd under the guise of fighting terrorism. He encouraged Mexicans to swarm across our border because his globalist bosses want a world without borders. Terrorists can cross this border and possibly kill hundreds or even thousands of Americans. But that’s all right. It’s evidently a small price to pay to “achieve the universal aspirations of mankind.” (However they might be defined. More than likely they are the “universal aspirations” of those wanting to control the world economy.)
These Utopian dreamers, these deluded gangsters, who honestly believe they are doing something good for the future of mankind, have now taken control of the United States government, made Bush and Obama their puppets, and are unwittingly setting the stage for the appearance of the Antichrist who will reap the rewards of their labor.
Madness? Insanity? Religious fanaticism? Call it what you will, but evangelical Christians believe this world government will be established. What they do not believe (fail to understand) is that their boy Geo.W. Bush was one of the main architects of this coming state of affairs, passing himself off as a Christian while unknowingly setting the stage for the emergence of the Antichrist. They (unfortunately) failed to see any contradiction between their support for his “conservative domestic values”, and a president who sat idly by while our manufacturing base was being exported, who started wars on the other side of the planet for everyone else’s benefit but ours, and who imported a huge underclass of third world immigrants whose existence threatens our economy, culture and language.
So evangelicals foolishly supported George Bush. Why? Because he was against abortion and for family values. These are the bones he threw their way to keep their loyalty. These bones are inexpensive and Bush could afford to throw them around because their existence in no way affects the greater design of globalization.
Evangelicals should be able to see through this, but there is a blind spot called abortion and at this time they are, unfortunately, unable to see past it. Which means that unless they wake up and begin taking the long biblical view, they will be instrumental in taking their country down a disastrous path leading to its loss of sovereignty, values, culture and freedoms. While trying to save their country, they will kill it!
Bush and Obama’s New World Order will not be the Millennium. It will be more akin to the Tower of Babel which in the end produced nothing because the final outcome of this world is in G*d’s hands, and not in the hands of multinational gangsters, power-mad politicians, utopian dreamers, or biblically illiterate presidents who allow themselves to be used by all of the above.
