Someone skipped Sunday school
The Washington Post has posted an article that leads off with this: “The Lutheran denomination that GOP presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann quit in June sought to explain its belief that the papacy is the anti-Christ after reports questioned whether Bachmann is anti-Catholic.”
This is what you get when you have some gaggle of secular humanist types publishing articles about religion.
The traditional hardshell Protestant attitude toward the papacy is that the pope is the Antichrist. Capitalized, no hyphen. The Antichrist is the person representing the power of evil on earth in the Last Days, to be destroyed by Christ in his ultimate triumph. The Antichrist is the Antagonist at Armageddon. You can read all about it in the feverish Book of Revelation.
The term anti-Christ would merely describe any person or group opposed to Christ.
In our degenerate times, it’s a common blunder.
