Montreat College professor William Forstchen says Election 2016 could lead to another bloody civil war.

  • Professor Forstchen specializes in Civil War history.
  • Forstchen gave warning on the October 25th edition of “The Jim Bakker Show” during their weeklong, “Ready Now Expo Oct. 2016.”
  • Forstchen: “I’m a civil war historian.” The U.S. election of 1860 “is the closest I can parallel this to.”
  • “And we all know what the price was. When we went to a civil war, they killed 660,000 young men because we became so divided.”
  • Forstchen urged voters to turn out even if they disliked the candidates, because of other US congress races and the Supreme Court appointment.
  • Forstchen: “I do believe we are at 1860. We are that close to the edge of the debacle.”
  • Baptist pastor Carl Gallups then alluded to false Christian doctrine: “The prophecy clock started ticking” when the modern nation of Israel was established in 1948.
  • In 1860: Four candidates received substantive amounts of votes in the U.S. presidential election.
  • Abraham Lincoln (39.8 percent), Stephen Douglas (29.5 percent), John Breckinridge (18.1 percent) and John Bell (12.6 percent).
  • On December 20, 1860 (44 days after Republican Lincoln was elected): Delegates to a convention in South Carolina unanimously voted to secede from the United States.
  • Forstchen has co-authored books with Newt Gingrich.

(WASHINGTON, DC) A professor who specializes in the Civil War appeared on a special edition of “The Jim Bakker Show” last week to warn America that the 2016 presidential election could lead to another secessionist melee.

“And we all know what the price was,” the professor then said. “When we went to a civil war, they killed 660,000 young men because we became so divided.”

Next, Forstchen went on a lengthy diatribe about the U.S. Constitution and the importance of voting.

He urged “those of you who feel ‘I can’t quite pull the lever for this person or that person’” in the presidential election to vote because U.S. senators and representatives are up for election, and because the Senate must confirm Supreme Court justices.

Forstchen failed to explain how the results of the 2016 election will hasten — or prevent — a civil war. He also did not specifically mention or endorse any candidates for office.

Nevertheless, the professor concluded with an adamant exhortation that a civil war is nigh.

“I do believe we are at 1860,” Forstchen said, looking directly into the camera. “We are that close to the edge of the debacle.”
