........ John Henry Newman says towards the end of the "Patristical Idea of Christ" that:
What I have said upon this subject may be summed up as follows: that the coming of Christ will be immediately preceded by a very awful and unparalleled outbreak of evil, called by St. Paul an Apostasy, a falling away, in the midst of which a certain terrible Man of sin and Child of perdition, the special and singular enemy of Christ, or Antichrist, will appear; that this will be when revolutions prevail, and the present framework of society breaks to pieces; and that at present the spirit which he will embody and represent is kept under by "the powers that be," but that on their dissolution, he will rise out of their bosom and knit them together again in his own evil way, under his own rule, to the exclusion of the Church.
.....this very Apostasy is to give birth to Antichrist, or whether he is still to be delayed, as he has already been delayed so long, we cannot know; but at any rate this Apostasy, and all its tokens and instruments, are of the Evil One, and savior of death... He promises you illumination, he offers you knowledge, science, philosophy, enlargement of mind. He scoffs at times gone by; he scoffs at every institution that reveres them. He prompts you what to say, and then listens to you, and praises you, and encourages you. He bids you mount aloft. He shows you how to become as gods. Then he laughs and jokes with you, and gets intimate with you; he takes your hand, and gets his fingers between yours, and grasps them, and then you are his."

The Apocalyptic Vision of "Lord of the World"
Has anyone ever wondered if the good guy of the old beliefs, is actually the bad guy too? Such that knowledge and learning is how 'apocalypse' (unveiling) even occurs. And I have no doubt that the 3 religions of Abraham are pulled from their roots (Dan 7:8 ..)
Reread your favorite scripture and then compare to today. Not the 'city of blood' and consider what is happening in jerusalem, right now. That is the bad, 'anti' in which a focus on a location and central control, and the good is the single, unveiling the facts of life to enable absolute freedom (heaven on earth).
The difference is hugenormous.
For example: each are born living within nature. Carbon-12 is the most predominant isotope of carbon and that element is what each reading this are literally living upon. 6 protons, 6 electrons, and 6 neutrons, is the benchmark element of most all life known to exist.
Now is it wrong to be taught what IS REAL?
Is there anyway on earth to remove that knowledge now learned and upon the head, of 666?
And if you bumped into a person born 6/66 (june 1966) that claimed to have the name of god, between the ears and can enable each to live forever and it is true, then is that person the good guy or the bad guy?
