This one definitely raises eyebrows. In a dramatic about-face for a movement that a generation ago embraced a Cold War nuclear shield against the Soviets, evangelical Christians are now
spreading the gospel of nuclear disarmament. Once again, politics is the new religion. Christianity is just the outer garment, so to speak. I suppose I could give these Christian leaders the benefit of the doubt, and assume that they’ve seen the error of their ways and so they now realize that it might not be such a good idea to pray for the world to be on the brink of man-induced destruction, but somehow I doubt that such a sign of good faith is warranted. After all, according to some of these people, Jesus likes to micro-manage, and wouldn’t take too kindly to the Iranians stealing his thunder by laying waste to Jerusalem and the Jews who haven’t converted to their flavor of Christianity before Armageddon gets started.
