A LESSON IN EVIL

The Rev. Jerry Falwell is quick to condemn Madonna
and other female rock stars as "Demonic." However,
The Good Rev. Falwell should take a hard look at what he, himself, is promoting.

FALWELL'S PROPHECY

"The Second Coming of Christ will
most likely be within the next ten
years and The Antichrist is alive
today and is a Jewish Male."

Rev. Falwell made this "prediction" in January 1999.
On 20 January 1999 The ADL {Anti-Defamation League} said,

"Rev. Falwell's statement borders on anti-Semitism at best and is anti-Semitism at worst, rooted in Christian Fundamentalist Extremism."

ECHOS OF AUSCHWITZ

The prophetic statement of Rev. Falwell is irresponsible, misleading and fuels
The Fires of Hatred against Jews.

{1} It is accepted that we are living in Biblical "End Times." So
      Falwell stating that The Antichrist being alive in the world today is not news.

{2} Rev. Falwell's "date-setting" is not based-upon the Scripture.

{3} No where does the bible say The Antichrist will be born a Jew.

The Book of Daniel gives us the only indication of the "nationality"
of The Antichrist: The Beast of Rev:13.

"He {The Antichrist} shall not regard
the God of his fathers nor the
desire of women, nor regard any
god: for he shall magnify himself
above them all."

"But in their place, He shall honor
a god of forces; and a god that
his fathers did not know he shall
honor with gold and silver, with
precious stones and pleasant
things". {Dan:11:37-38}

The above clearly states the "God of his fathers,"
A "God which his fathers did not know".
If The Antichrist would be born Jewish,

The Scripture would read,
"He will not honor the God of OUR Fathers:
YHWH, the GOD which OUR fathers knew and we know..."

THE SCRIPTURE DOES NOT SAY THE ANTICHRIST WILL BE JEWISH

In fact it seems to indicate the opposite.

At the time The Book of Daniel was written, there were many "gods" of the pagan world. The "god of his fathers" could refer to BEL or MARDUK: the Babylonian god. Babylon as told in this book enslaved {the prophet, Daniel, and Israel}.

Yet this Prophecy is speaking way into the future -- to at least 2000 ad.
Therefore the "God of his fathers" may refer to modern-day Christianity or Islam.
{2 of the 3 Monotheistic Religions}.

The Antichrist will honor a "strange" god --
No doubt an altered version of the name Lucifer or Satan. {Rev:13}.

It's clear that Rev. Falwell is exceeding what is written.

"Every word of God is pure;
He is a shield to those who
trust in Him.
Do not add to His words,
Lest He reprove you, and
you are found to be a liar".
Prov:30:5-6

We must ask, why does Jerry Falwell, who carries the titles Reverend, Pastor, and Chancellor of a Bible College make the statement:

"THE ANTICHRIST WILL BE A JEWISH MALE"

Why can't Jerry Falwell correctly read the scripture in DAN: 11?

WHY DOES REV. FALWELL MAKE A STATEMENT THAT IS
SO HURTFUL AND ENFLAMING AGAINST THE JEWISH PEOPLE?

THERE ARE ONLY TWO CONCLUSIONS WE CAN DRAW

1} He truly does not know how to read properly and in context.

2} He is anti-Semitic and fosters hatred for The Jewish People. {This is ironic when you
     consider that both JESUS and the Apostles: Peter, James , and Paul were all Jewish.}

ARE THERE ARE OTHER LOGICAL

CONCLUSIONS THAT WE MAY HAVE OVERLOOKED?

WHAT DO YOU THINK?


DOUBLE JEOPARDY

This is not the first time that Rev. Falwell has made an inflammatory, anti-Semitic" statement to the national press!

In the late 1980's The Rev. Falwell stirred up a firestorm of controversy and
anti-Semitic thought when he stated:

"ALL JEWS ARE GOING TO HELL"

A few weeks later, Rev. Falwell was forced to "clarify" his statement; by saying, "He meant those who reject Christ as Savior will not go to Heaven."

Why didn't he make this second statement in the first place?

Traditional Christian Theology is quite clear, "Those who reject Christ will not be granted Heaven." So Falwell's statement certainly wasn't news.

He could just as well have called a press conference to announce that the sun will rise tomorrow in the east.

WHAT MOTIVATED REV. FALWELL TO MAKE THIS HURTFUL STATEMENT?

a} Is he {A Pastor and Chancellor of a Bible College} totally insensitive to anti-Semitism?

or

b} Does Rev. Falwell fail to practice self-honesty and take a hard look
     within his own heart?

We must also remember that a favored tactic of Hate Mongers to make a damning statement -- let the DAMAGE BE DONE -- and later soften the statement into something else.

There is a moral to this story, best summed-up by Jesus in the Gospel:

"Hypocrite! First remove the beam
from your own eye, and then you
will see clearly to remove the speck
out of your brother's eye".
{Matt:7:5}.

It is always easier to see the faults in others rather than to see the flaws within ourselves.

A GREAT RESPONSIBILITY

Reverend Falwell has set himself up as a national Christian Leader.

The benefits from this are the admiration of his following and

A Very Comfortable Life Style, indeed.

But along with these benefits of Power and Wealth go A Great Responsibility.

FALWELL'S  FOLLY

fn: From the standpoint of Jerry Falwell as The Businessman that he is, we must also ask why The Good Reverend's Staff/PR people do not brief him on Theological Statements to The Press.


God Bless You
