I have just received news that the pope is urging president Obama to pass the National Sunday Law this month. Adventist president Ted Wilson is appealing to Christians to please pray for 7 days either 7am or 7 pm for the latter rain. Recommend script Rom 8:26-27,John 17:1-2, Eph 1:13. Please forward
It's also causing a bit of hysteria on the SDA Facebook page. I've searched all over and haven't been able to find a single reliable source (not even an official SDA source) confirming this, so its veracity is questionable, to say the least.
This sort of rumour makes the rounds every couple of years or so in Adventist circles: those who keep tabs on this kind of thing will remember the hysteria that was created over a post that was made by a member of Obama's community site back in '08 (Sample headline: "Sunday Law heavily debated on Barack Obama site"). In my opinion, Adventists just need to hear stuff like this to bolster their faith. You should have seen the absolute glee on my friend's face when he heard this - he was finally vindicated! The prophecy was coming true and soon he'd be in heaven and we heathens would finally burn for our sins! Such rumours spread like wildfire and are often unquestioningly accepted, as long as they remotely confirm their fairytale book and something their prophetess mumbled a couple of hundred years ago.
And this also says another thing: Obama is the Adventists' Antichrist too! Wait, sorry, that's the Pope by the way.
EDIT - Sorry folks, false alarm!
