End of times?

For several years back in the early 80's I was a member of a fundamentalist Christian church that took Scripture literally. One topic at the time was the End Times. This is the part of the Bible dealt with in Revelations and made popular by the Left Behind series.

Here is the deal - for all the talk about the End Times, a significant event for the period to begin is an attack on Israel and it's abandonment by all other countries. Well, as long as the United States supports Israel, such abandonment just wouldn't happen and any potential attacker of Israel must consider our response.

But, imagine a Obama presidency. Would the world think we would continue to give support to Israel? I don't think so, and neither did Jesse Jackson in discussions with European leaders.

I am no longer a believer - but it is interesting....
