Guttenberg Blames Being Busy and Vanity for Plagiarism Matter

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg


As regular readers know, I have long had my eye on former German Defense Minister Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg as one to watch as a possible candidate to be the final King of the North of Daniel 11 and Beast of Revelation.

Daniel 11 indicates that the final King of the North will be full of vanity:

36 “Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. 37 He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.  (Daniel 11:36-37)

So vanity and arrogance are traits of the final King of the North.

Notice the following about and from him earlier this month:

A new book, “Vorerst Gescheitert” (Failed at First), is Guttenberg’s attempt to repair his tattered reputation and set the stage for a comeback. Structured as an interview with Giovanni di Lorenzo, editor-in-chief of Die Zeit newspaper…

Why did he want the doctorate — in addition to his aristocratic title of Freiherr (similar to Baron) and his political laurels? In a country where customers are asked to list their academic titles on applications for retail loyalty cards, a Ph.D. is the ultimate accessory to a political career.

Guttenberg says “the biggest mistake of his life” was refusing to acknowledge that he didn’t have time to do a good job on the thesis — a mistake he blames on “arrogance combined with a fair amount of vanity.” As a result of being overstretched, his approach became “chaotic,” he says…

Guttenberg, says his “strength is returning” for the next chapter in his life.

He sees a “political leadership crisis” in Germany. Though he won’t be pinned down on timing, Guttenberg says he expects to return and re-enter German politics in some form.  (Hickley C. Plagiarist Baron Seeks Political Comeback With Lame Excuses.  December 15, 2011.

So, vanity was the apparent reason for the Ph.D. and taking short-cuts to get it was the result of vanity and arrogance according to Karl zu Guttenberg himself.  And he wishes to rise up again (Daniel 11:21-22).  These seem to be traits of the final King of the North.

The final Beast, the final King of the North, will ultimately become the political leader of not simply Germany, but much or more of Europe. And according to the Bible, he will have military abilities (Revelation 13:1-4), have problems (Daniel 11:21-22), will be arrogant (Daniel 11:36-37), will be apparently be popular and charismatic (cf. Daniel 7:20,11:21-24,31; Revelation 13:3-5), and be able to attain economic control (Revelation 13:15-18).

Baron Guttenberg (former Economics and Defense Minister for Germany) has displayed confirming characteristics.  Of course, he could simply be a normal politician with ups and downs.

Yet, his statements and actions show that he is one we all should watch (cf. Mark 13:37).
