Something about the description of the Antichrist in Revelation annoys me. He is more identifiable to the Second Beast rather than the first. I mean, the Beast from the Sea is explicitly described as having political powers, while the Beast from the Land, aka the False Prophet, has a more spiritual form of control. I'm waiting for feedbacks before switching what is said in the article.

I wonder if anyone has bothered to point out something that everyone else seems to ignore: If the Anti-Christ is the Opposite of Christ, than the Anti-Christ should also be opposite in gender too. Unless of course Jesus really was a woman...

Yeah, but if you're gonna go that route, Jesus lives forever, so the Antichrist would never be alive at all

Jesus's godly form lives forever, but his human form doesn't, so the Antichrist would just be soulless, but still have a functioning body.

I think the real life "examples" should be removed - this is about literal Anti Christs - if we have a real life section of people who were or are considered by any group to be an Anti Christ, it would get massive and unecessary pretty quick.

Well Jim Jones is real life and can match The Anicrist thing since he is a False Prophet and Complete Monster and seem to be good at manipulation as well as killing his own followers with poison kool aid and makes one of the biggest tragedy known as The Guyana Tragedy

Extremely late reply, but what about L. Ron Hubbard, who called himself an Antichrist?

Also, that was Wyler's, not Kool-Aid. Interesting that Wyler's is such a bit player that a bigger product line takes the blame.

Also, the Antichrist is supposed to be someone everyone loves and trusts. In order for someone to be accused of being the Antichrist, there must be first be at least one person (and more often than not, loads and loads of people) who neither loves nor trusts him. Therefore, nobody who's ever been accused of being the Antichrist can possibly be the Antichrist.

^ Biblically speaking, yes, but not necessarily in fiction.

I put in the current Real Life section, but I don't list any real ones, just the fact that throughout history this charge has been leveled at lots of people, 100% of which never took over the earth or ushered in Doomsday. I point out the Rule OF Cautious Editing Judgement, too.

Back on the subject of the Antichrist, the Bible clearly states that even the elect will be taken by his charms, so yep - no one would know in Real Life - but fiction is Escapism and being the only one who knows something is wrong is a popular escapist trope.
