End Times Hype

With all his end times anxiety, it's occurring to me that all the hype, even among Christians, blatantly ignores Christ's teachings.

Christ's own words seem to contradict the popular end times podium.


"Therefore I say unto you, be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than the food, and the body than the raiment? Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not ye of much more value then they? And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit unto the measure of his life? And why are ye anxious concerning raiment? . . . But if God doth so clothe the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Be not therefore anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles seek; for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Be not therefore anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." (Matthew 6)

I doubt it. If anyone fits the definition of the false prophet and the Antichrist, it's the two people Beck hammers time and again: Obama and his puppet master, George Soros.

Pax Christi,

Yeah Obama and Soros have done plenty of damage to the country. My beef with Beck is that he's done some damage to the Church. By this I mean that Beck, a fallen away Catholic, interweaves his newfound religious viewpoints in nearly every argument he makes. One example is when Beck defended the DaVinci Code and referring to the blasphemous claim that Christ had a relationship to Mary Magdalen, Beck replied, "who cares?" This post focused on Beck's obsession with stockpiling food that seems to contradict Our Lord's own words in Matt Ch. 6. But if Beck is consistent with his DaVinci Code opinion, why should he care now?
