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.
