The RenewAmerica website is definitely trying to win the Curmudgeon’s Buffoon Award. They just posted another column by a preacher named Michael Bresciani, about whom we’re told: “Rev. Michael Bresciani is a Christian author and a columnist for several online sites and magazines.” The last time we wrote about one of his essays was Evolution — The Greatest Hoax of All Time.
The rev’s latest is Antichrist — there’s an app for that: or there soon will be. It’s so wildly incoherent that we can’t find any theme that even purports to hold it together. All we can do is give you a series of sentences we pulled out of the thing, each of which stands alone as a monument to wackiness. We don’t need to add any bold font to the excerpts. Imagine that they’re entirely in all caps and bold font. Okay, here it comes:
There’s little mystery to the fact that the world is becoming so openly hostile to the gospel and anything at all to do with the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. It goes with the territory, the prophetic warnings and the rise of the well prophesied last and worst dictator of the world known as the Antichrist.
We know what you’re thinking: Yes, Curmy, that’s definitely crazy, but what does it have to do with the stuff you usually write about? All we can do is urge you to say with us, dear reader. Here’s more:
The spirit of Antichrist is working and preparing the hearts of men to fully receive him.
He will pop up on the scene rather suddenly as an amazing economist and political military genius unlike like the world has ever seen. He will be pleasant to look at and provide an air of confidence that those who are driven only by pop-culture’s fleeting standards will be quite satisfied with – regardless of what he proposes. He will be Obama on steroids or a sort of turbocharged Hitler.
That was just a warm-up. Let’s read on:
The icons are newly inaugurated heroes of the last centuries, entrepreneurs, tech wizards and silicon silly sots, stupefied by the culture’s prophets of science and their promises. People like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are the headliners in the greatest dog and pony show since Barnum and Bailey.
Tech’s earliest pioneers were men like Darwin, who after noticing that Galapagos finches had different kinds of beaks, helped the world to leap to the conclusion that everything came from nothing.
You wanted evolution to be mentioned? You got it! The rev continues:
The hype quickly became hip and modern minds now refuse to examine creation science with its new proofs. Calls for evolutionists to deal with the myriads of un-answered questions go unheeded. It’s the old, ‘don’t confuse me with the facts’ that powers the engine of deleteriousness among the sycophants. If missing links were the means by which we calculated how smart we are – honest people would be forced to admit that this is the dumbest generation in history, in spite of technology.
We’re less than a third of the way into this mess, so we’ll have to be very selective from now on. Here’s more:
We have science softening the cruelty and inhuman practice of murdering what we all know are babies, by calling them – fetuses. Political correctness has joined with evolution and now we need not say that our grandparents were monkeys, baboons and gorillas, but they are – primates.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The rev is an adult primate fetus. Moving along:
Bad and false science, along with notably non-empirical guesswork, creates friction when it meets with truth. No problem, we reduce or eliminate the friction with fiction. We think we are going to flit about among the stars even though the unfathomable distances between stars says we are not.
We all want our children to be the next Einstein and we continue to laud the wonders produced by his masterpiece known as – relativity, but we are quiet about the fact that this man also unleashed the means by which to create the most devastating, world busting weapon men have ever known.
Science brings only death! Another excerpt:
People of God are not anti-science. They know that science is the means by which God has allowed us to peer into the wonders of his creation. But when it is exalted to the high place where it is allowed to figuratively give God his walking papers it has been raised to the place of an idol – that is far too high and that too is addressed in the bible.
Yeah, science has to be kept in its proper place — humble. On with the rev’s article:
Whether it’s a TV image or a holographic image that is televised matters little, he [the Antichrist] will make sure everyone in the world sees him on a regular basis – or else!
Antichrist will be seen the world over and if you are still here when that is happening, you will be in the most danger you have ever been in for your entire life.
But at the end, the rev is somewhat optimistic:
Technology will cease, and after Christ’s return, the need for it as we know it today, will meet with instant obsolescence. It takes no technology to circumvent the dangers that lie ahead; all it takes is a change of heart.
So there you are, dear reader. The rev is saying that if you abandon science, that mean ol’ Antichrist isn’t gonna getcha. You’ve been warned.
