Christ: Didn't come to judge the world but to save it (John 12:47)
Anti-Christ: Wants to trick the world into going to hell
Christ: Taught that God's Law is to always treat others as you would like to be treated and to not stray to the wide path that leads to destruction (Matthew 7:12-16)
Anti-Christ: Tricks people into loving greed and power and to conquer the whole world while those he deceives believes the beast is God and says who is greater than the beast.
Christ: Taught that the rich should give to the poor and they will have Heavenly Treasure (Matthew 19:21)
Anti-Christ: Leads people to conquer with greed, lets the rich have more and more while the poor who reject his system and stays outside of it gets bullied and persecuted.
Christ: Taught that what you do to the least among you and what you do to the stranger, you do unto The King, and those who were heartless to them are on the side of satan (Matthew 25:40-41)
Anti-Christ: Teaches to conquer for power and greed, and to harm the weak and poor and stranger who will not bow down to the anti-christ and his system.
The deceived will believe that they are Christians of God and there will be many but they will lack Empathy, Compassion, Kindness, Patience, Mercy for the neighbour and their enemies and the stranger, the exact opposite of what Christ taught!

Love is a perfect understanding.
Not in-love, not lust, but love.
Not an emotion. Not a question. Not an answer. Not a fear.
What else is perfect?
Transitory states are only transitory in time--the fourth dimension. Out side of time, perfection can be understood as the differential value of superimposed phases of transition: Constructive and destructive interference.
God is Love, so what God does is Love.
God IS Love.
so..... even those wo “have jesus” still sabotage themselves? What good is having jesus if he doesn’t really help? It sounds like a Linus‘s blanket type scenario. It doesn’t really do anything, but it makes him feel better. It’s like walking with crutches when your legs are fine.

Boy that's an interesting theory (made me set my cup down); yet, on a personal level, I was not raised in a religious environment. My extent of Biblical knowledge as a child was that Noah had a boat. Moses had a magic staff and a beard. Jesus was a guy that everybody hated on. I wasn't raised to believe in sin, yet when I was first told about sin, I personally understood it to be true...because, as I already stated, I have not met a single human being who does not sabotage themselves and others from time to time, in one way or another.
Apparently, I'm the exception to your theory as you are to mine.
The Bible’s answer
The antichrist is not merely one individual person or entity, for the Bible says that there are “many antichrists.” (1 John 2:18) ...
Besides speaking of individuals ... as being antichrists, the Bible also refers to them collectively as “the antichrist.” (2 John 7) ...
How to identify antichrists
- They promote false ideas related to Jesus. (Matthew 24:9, 11) For example, those who teach the Trinity or that Jesus is Almighty God actually oppose the teachings of Jesus, who said: “The Father is greater than I am.”—John 14:28.
- Antichrists reject what Jesus said about how God’s Kingdom operates. For instance, some religious leaders say that Christ works through human governments. Yet, this teaching contradicts Jesus, who said: “My Kingdom is no part of this world.”—John 18:36.
- They say that Jesus is their Lord, but they do not obey his commands, including the one to preach the good news of the Kingdom.—Matthew 28:19, 20; Luke 6:46; Acts 10:42.
The concepts of love and perfection are completely subjective.
so do you think that “what god is” is completely subjective? Do you think that all of the multiple versions of what people call “god” are equally valid?
