Why This Blog?

    This blog is designed to be a place where the mind can freely stretch. If you are accustomed to confining your mind to close quarters, then you will find this blog an uncomfortable place. It is entitled 'Methinks' because these are my musings. I am not setting forth new doctrines. Rather, I am allowing myself to ponder whether old truths have been forgotten or misunderstood, and whether we have developed our own liturgy the same way a horse cart wears a path in a quaint rural road.  
   Here, in this blog you are free to express. The only requirement is that contributions represent a true exchange of ideas, not biases, or emotional responses.

Obama - Something to think about

Louis Farrakan, a militant muslim, hails the possibility of an Obama presidency.  Momar Khadafi, leader of Libya has publicly lauded the millions of dollars, with which rich muslims in Africa have bankrolled Obama's campaign. Methinks they know something.

Of course, all Christians understand that this is the wrong man.  many will be depressed on wednesday, Nov 5th, wondering how God can let this happen.  I'm no prophet, but this is something that may make you think.  Rev 16:13 and following picture three forces coming together to attack the kingdom of God.  One of these forces is symbolized as the "false prophet".  The picture is Islam.  My personal belief that Armageddon is a symbol of the United States.  There is no place on earth where there is a greater struggle between competing ideologies.  The nation already struggles between catholocism (66 million Americans), and atheism, which has entrenched itself. Islam has a foothold(8 million) but what could possibly bring this third force to significant status?Perhaps a muslim-friendly Administration?

I'm not depressed, The bible pictures this as the setting of the stage for God's final victory. I'm not predicting an imminent return of Christ, but I am getting the feeling we are seeing the final pieces begin to be put in place.
