With Tim Pawlenty out of the presidential race, it is now fairly clear that the GOP candidate will either be Mitt Romney or someone who makes George W. Bush look like Tom Paine. Of the three most plausible candidates for the Republican nomination, two are deeply associated with a theocratic strain of Christian fundamentalism known as Dominionism.
... the Ahrimanic [Satanic] influence has been at work since the middle of the fifteenth century [which is approximately when the Venetian empire was just beginning its war against human consciousness-evolution] and will increase in strength until an actual incarnation of Ahriman takes place among Western humanity.[...]These very people who swear by the Gospel alone and reject every kind of real spiritual knowledge, form the beginning of a flock for Ahriman when he appears in human shape in modern civilization. From these circles, from these members of confessions and sects who repulse the concrete knowledge brought by spiritual endeavor, whole hosts will develop as adherents of Ahriman. Now this is all beginning to come into existence. [Christian Fundamentalism was just getting started during Steiner's time.]
Rudolf Steiner, from The Ahrimanic Deception
This is a very real battle to replace Christ by Ahriman for the remaining 6000 years of the Post-Atlantean epoch.
This is just more evidence that my fake Apocalypse hypothesis is on the mark. These aren't Christians, but Satanists or their tools, who really do intend to take dominion over the planet, and already have to a large degree, thus explaining the mess we're in today.
The fact that they think that it's up to them to take dominion exposes their claim that Christ is going to return physically and take dominion as a lie. Those who expect Christ to save them from the Tribulation and return them to an Earthly paradise are in for a big let-down.
