He denies that the holocaust ever happened, claims that the 9-11 terrorism was not carried out by Moslems but rather Americans intent on protecting Israel (and that no Jew died in the explosions), etc etc. With such easily disproved fallacies, Ahmadinejhad truly deserves to be called - like someone insisted is the correct pronunciation of the name - “I’m mad in ze head”.
But then there is still some method to the madness of this man!
All his rhetoric about the US and Zionism, etc, began by his claiming that the current world order has failed because mankind has forsaken spirituality for materialism, especially capitalism. And in his conclusion, he proffered what he sees as the only solution, the coming together of religions to prepare the grounds for the literal return of the Mahdi to this planet. The Mahdi (who was the 12th Imam) supposedly disappeared in the year 941 as a child; but is supposedly living in seclusion since them, ready to appear to save the world in these end times .
According to Ahmadinejhad: “Reforming the world's affairs and bringing about tranquility and prosperity requires the participation of all, pure thoughts and the divine and humane management….The complete human, the true servant of God and the true friend of the mankind whose father was from the generation of the beloved Prophet of Islam and whose mother was from the true believers of the Jesus Christ, shall wait along with Jesus the son of Mary and the other righteous to appear on those brilliant times and assist the humanity. In welcoming them we should join ranks and seek justice.”
Without any doubts, the Iranian president is hopelessly confused in his theology. Scriptures and currently unfolding world events clearly show that the man he is waiting for is none other than the antichrist (same as occultists Avatar, Hindu’s Maitreya, Catholic’s “Mary”.grand master, or World Teacher,The Coming One, etc, see Vol 9 No 1 and Vol 10 No 1). But say, how many of our Christian heads of government would dare proclaim from the UN podium the soon-coming Jesus Christ as the only ultimate hope of the world? Even supposed Christian pastors sing different tunes when they get to the UN (see a refreshingly different situation in Nigeria’s Pastor E.A. Adeboye at last year’s UN summit, Vol 12 No 5).
Speaking out at the UN apart, even in their minds alone, how many Christian political leaders would dare to refrain from embracing policies that have to be “tolerated” simply because “there is no other option”. Of course expecting a direct intervention by the Lord Jesus Christ would not qualify as an “intelligent” option! Hence, even though the many risks associated with genetical tinkering with life are well known, not to talk of the real possibility of having all mankind subservient to a few who hold the patents to new “improved” seeds, genetic engineering of foods continue to foray into sacred grounds, all because, “there are no other options”. Likewise, homosexuality must be embraced and recommended to young people so that sexual needs could be “met” without increasing the population burden of mankind because “there are no other options”. The list is of course inexhaustible, but we mention one more: Jerusalem, the ancient Jewish capital today “NEEDS” to be partitioned in order to bring about some man-made peace in the Middle East, because “there are no other options”. All these evil compromises are eagerly embraced by the world today simply because it is inconceivable that some help can come from above.
The Ahmadinejhads of this world clearly expose the mortal danger in unbridled ecumecism and inter-faithism. Spirituality without a sound doctrine on the person and ministry of Jesus is mortal danger. (see 1 Jhn 4:2-3 ). Ahmadinejhad with all his spirituality is no saner than the atheist described in Psa 14:1 and 53:1
All these “do- small-evil- to- prevent- bigger- evil” philosophy will fly in the face of a belief that the good Lord, the eternal Creator will do what He has promised in His words, not to abandon the world to decay. Prior to His ultimate physical and literal return, He has put the Church here on earth to salt the earth and occupy for Him. The Church needs to sound it loud and clear that the only way of escape for the world is in following the clear directions set out in God’s word (the Holy Bible); and expecting the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ . From the Scriptures, we expect the manifestation of the antichrist ( Mahdi, Avatar, etc etc), will coincide with the rapture of the Church, the event that removes the restraint placed on the antichrist (2 Thess. 2:6-9)
