Experts Weigh in on Robert Jeffress’ Remarks That Obama’s Policies ‘Pave the Way’ for Antichrist
Dr. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church of Dallas continues to garner attention for his view that President Barack Obama’s policies will lead to the rise of the Antichrist.
As Jeffress gathers headlines from media online and offline, a couple biblical scholars have weighed in on the controversial claim.
Dr. Darrell Bock, senior research professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, told The Christian Post that “one always has to be careful about such claims.”
“Believers are to keep watch and be alert, but given the poor track record of such predictions, I am very hesitant to make such points. So one has to be careful in making any such associations,” said Bock.
“More problematic is that the USA is not mentioned directly anywhere in Scripture. We only have generic descriptions of how the world acts and conducts its business.”
