Whoever denies “that Jesus is the Christ” is a liar and an antichrist.
If so, then there are about four billion antichrists now living. 2:22
John I , Chapter 2 Verses 21 to 23.
21 – I have not written unto you
because ye know not the truth,
but because ye know it, and
that no lie is of the truth.
22 – Who is a liar but he that
denieth that Jesus is the Christ?
He is antichrist, that denieth
the Father and the Son.
23 – Whosoever denieth the Son,
the same hath not the Father:
[(but) he that acknowledgeth
the Son hath the Father also].
The AntiChrist is not one man at all. The AntiChrist, the embodiment of evil as its defined here by John is any person who denies that Christ is indeed the Son of God. Many times over the centuries many men have denied that Christ was the son of God, even Charlamagne himself was committed to have been the AntiChrist of his time 800 A.D. , as defined so by the Papal state and the Roman Catholic Church. Other individuals purported to be the AntiChrist — Napolean, Bill Gates, Yassar Arrafat, Any Iteration of the Pope (Even John Paul II), John F Kennedy, Josef Stalin, Henry Kissinger, FDR, JFK, Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, Antichous Ephinanes (origin of the word Epiphany actually), Karl Hapsburg, and Prince Charles. If all of these people have been the AntiChrist, then the world is really doomed.
