Forgive me if this is in the wrong place but I thought, with the topic I'm about to discuss and it dealing with a Biblical topic that maybe it would go here.
Over the past few years I've found myself out of touch with my religion (I'd consider myself a non-practicing Mormon) due to life kicking my family when we're down time and a time again. It started when my father was let go from GM which spiraled out into loss of job after job and seventeen months of unemployment which branched off into homelessness. My family has kept their faith but I feel like I've completely lost mine.
This leads me to think of all the other people out there who feel just as hopeless as I do. Almost as if praying has lost its meaning and that we need something more to save us from what this world is becoming.
Natural disasters. Economic collapse. Governments we feel we can no longer trust. The fear of war, famine, the overall hardship that just doesn't seem to end. It's all leading up to something big.
When I was an active religious person I was always interested in Revolutions. I've been interested in the end of the world scenarios since I was younger but I've never in my life felt so close to those verses as I have now. I know the Bible states that the time of the end of days isn't something that will be known but the events that are happening day to day feel like we're being set up for something more. The game has been paid out, pawns ready to start we're just missing the rest of the players..
If anything if a charismatic leader were to show up now, with all the right words and the right ideas, the Antichrist, I could easily see the masses welcoming that with opened arms. Again, this is all said in the Bible on how things are suppose to go down but, still, it's just a feeling.
I hope I'm not the only one out there thinking this.
Thank you for reading.

Why does it have to be an Antichrist? Why cannot it be a AntiMohommed or AntiBuddha etc etc. Christianity is only one out of many religions, so what makes you think that Christianity is right? For all we know, Buddha could be the true one or Thor or Zeus.
