Question: Is the antichrist real? Is he alive today? Do you think we are in the last days, or is it just a lot of hoopla like the ridiculous Y2K scare?
Answer: 1. The antichrist is real. If you read all four verses used to describe the antichrist, you will see that it is an attitude, and not a person. The attitude that one has which causes them to deny Christ is antichrist. The one who refuses to accept the deity of Christ is an antichrist. The one who refused to believe that God came as Christ in the flesh is the antichrist. Read 1 John and 2 John and you will come across all four verses.
Some dummies came up with a scare tactic that works only because of ignorance on the part of the general population. If every Christian were to study God's word like they were supposed to, we could eliminate much of the religious division that currently exists in the world today.
2. We are living in the last days. Biblical proof is found in Heb 1:2. We live in the days where Christ is ruler and King on His throne in Heaven above. The last days started on Pentecost after the death, burial, and resurrection, and ascension of Jesus.
Stop listening to the various religious people and start reading God's word. Be like the nobel Bereans in Acts 17:11. Let the Bible confirm what is being taught. Don't rely upon the "experts".
Study God's word. (Carey Scott, 7-1-2000 askme.com)
