The concept of the “End of Days” is common parlance in America, where between 60 and 100 million Christians believe that it means the end of the world and they can see signs of its approach in the rise of the anti-Christ in the shape of Islamic terrorists and the Axis of Evil. These forces will be pitched against the USA, Britain and Israel - the armies of Christ - and sooner or later they will meet in Israel on the plains of Megiddo at Armageddon as prophesied in Revelation 16:16.
I think this is quite a "strawman" argument, for the following reasons.
1st, it is true that probably 60M or more American Christians _do_ believe in an "end times scenario". However, the following is _not_ true, and and this is why Mr. Strachan has put up a strawman argument.
(a) It is not true that those same 60M+ American believers think that the "anti-Christ [is rising] in the shape of Islamic terrorists and the Axis of Evil". Some do -- most don't.
(b) It is not true that those same 60M+ American Christians perceive "the USA, Britain and Israel [to be] the armies of Christ"
Simple facts are -- there are probably a few million that do believe (a) is true, and a few million that believe (b) is true -- but those aren't necessarily the same sets of people. And the number is WAY less than the suggested 60M to 100M.
In fact, the majority of Christians do believe in figures of speech, and allegory -- and even the Evangelicals, Pentacostalists, and Charismatics believe this. It is absolutely true that they all believe in a literal "End Times" -- but don't get sucked into believing that they all therefore think it is just around the corner (although it might be), or that Islamic terrorists are the Anti-Christ (they don't believe that at all), or that there is some special deal for the USA, the UK, and Israel (since they know very well that most of the real Christians today are in South America, Africa, Indonesia, and Asia together)!
Just as a perspective of the USA is completely bent if all you see is Hollywood movies and shows and assume that what they show is America -- so is a view of American Christians if all you see is the big media figureheads and their self-serving blather.
