Is George Soros the Antichrist? Some people seem to think so.
Rudy Giuliani recently retweeted a post that read, "Follow the money. I think Soros is the anti-Christ! He must go! Freeze his assets & I bet the protests will stop."
I was surprised to see how much media attention this tweet received. While I'm sure many, including Giuliani, didn't take this Antichrist accusation seriously, others see a strong spiritual angle to Soros' actions.
I personally don't think Soros is the Antichrist. But it's obvious he operates in the spirit of the Antichrist that the apostle John warned us about in 1 John 4:3—"And every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and is already in the world."
The fact is that Soros funds many of the attacks on conservative, biblical values. The media tries to make it seem as though the many liberal protests we're seeing nowadays are spontaneous. But as I document in my book Trump Aftershock, there's strong reason to believe that many of these protesters are paid to come and stir up trouble.
Rich socialists like Soros know that if they can manage to disrupt society with chaos, good and decent people will cave into liberal demands and give way to the leftist agenda.
Even though these things have been happening for quite some time, I believe we are in a position in America that we've never been in before. The attacks against Christian values seem to have never been stronger than they are today. But I also believe the pendulum is about to swing the other way—and part of that started with Donald Trump's election.
I document this phenomenon in Trump Aftershock, which comes out Nov. 6. Since Trump was elected in 2016, he's accomplished several exciting things, including boosting the economy, strengthening international diplomacy, moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and even forcing Turkey to free wrongfully imprisoned pastor Andrew Brunson.
I also document the intense attacks—fueled by billionaire radicals—coming from the left since Trump has been in office. Democrats were even so bold as to say they would oppose anyone Trump nominated to replace former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
But the war against Christian values isn't limited to those on the far left, such as FPL and Faith in Action. On the CBS Sunday-morning program Face the Nation, Washington Postcolumnist Michael Gerson, a liberal evangelical, was asked to comment on the evangelical leaders who supported the president during the Stormy Daniels scandal. The former speechwriter for President George W. Bush replied, "Well, they are acting like, you know, slimy political operatives, not moral leaders. They are essentially saying, in order to get benefits for themselves, in a certain way—they talk about religious liberty and other issues—but to get benefits for themselves, they are willing to wink at Stormy Daniels and wink at misogyny and wink at nativism."
My friend Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, who was accused of moral duplicity by Gerson in an article for The Atlantic, responded by saying his decision to support Donald Trump was due to the dramatic contrast between the two candidates and the good that Trump's conservative agenda would do. "Religious freedom is being restored," he said, "pro-life policies being advanced— the infrastructure of leftist government being dismantled. That's why Gerson and the left are so enraged." Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of Dallas' First Baptist Church and an adviser to the president, agreed: "We are supporting this president because of his policies."
Meanwhile, Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, said evangelicals "feel culturally and politically besieged" and "feel like their government has been weaponized against them." During a radio interview, Land said, "In a fallen sinful world, sometimes we are forced to make a choice between the lesser evil and the greater evil. And if we do not choose to help the lesser evil triumph over the greater evil, we become morally responsible for the greater evil prevailing."
He added, "However immoral you may think Donald Trump is, Mrs. Clinton is more immoral." He added that liberal evangelicals such as Mike Gerson have missed the point.
I could not agree more, and I've described elsewhere that I've made that point not only in God and Donald Trump but in various media interviews and in Trump Aftershock as well.
