Suspicions About Santorum.

The 2012 United States Presidential race is underway, and the leading candidates for the Rebublican nomination are Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. Romney is currently leading Santorum by a little over 6%. This is an improvement for Santorum though considering he was recently near the bottom of the pack.

Now, as Seventh-day Adventists, we believe that in the end times will come a time where church and state are united and a national worship day will be established. We believe this day will be Sunday. Following these changes  we also realize there will be a great time of persecution in which we must flee to the hills and hide in order to survive.

As Adventists, we believe there would be signs in which we would know if we are living in these times. These signs include, the moon turning as if it were blood, the sun turning black, and the falling of the stars. All these signs were fulfilled as of 1833.   This is why some of Santorum’s recent statements have caught our eye.

Santorum, who is a Roman-Catholic, recently has made some questionable remarks about his beliefs, the government, and President Obama’s belief’s. He made a comment in which he seemed to be saying that Obama, who is a generic Christian that regularly attends church, believes in a ‘phony theology’. He later came out and claimed that he was not accusing him of that. Santorum also recently stated that he believes church and state should not be separated, but fused together. Statements like these are what attract the attention of people like us Seventh-day Adventists.

Of course a majority of Protestant religions go to church on Sunday, aside from Adventists, Seventh-day Baptists and a few others. Most Protestants will not really be affected by a national worship day and would probably be more open to it. Other people including these churches probably have no real interest in these statements that he made either. Why would they? To Adventists though, comments such as these point to a fulfillment of prophecy.

Despite the drama going around with Santorum’s recent comments, we are not at all accusing him of anything. These comments have instead just made us a little more aware of our beliefs and what we believe will soon come. So watch what happens in this election with interest and be viligant!
