Pope Francis: Not the Antichrist, but the Anti-John the Baptist – the False Prophet Forerunner I posted a few weeks ago that it is now appropriate for serious-minded people to start considering the possibility that Pope Francis is, in fact, the Antichrist. Well, I heard from many serious people, and I will share the consensus, which I believe is almost certainly correct. First, the serious consensus is that Pope Francis is NOT the Antichrist. He is, without question, the Spirit of Antichrist, but not the individual Antichrist himself. Why? The Antichrist will be A.) extremely intelligent, which Bergoglio is not, and B.) teaching and tradition with regards to the Antichrist holds that he will be a layman. What the serious consensus today is, however, is that there is a very, very high probability that Francis is the False Prophet forerunner of the Antichrist, who is paving the way and laying the groundwork for the Antichrist. John the Baptist was executed for defending the sanctity of Marriage vis-a-vis the state, namely King Herod. Bergoglio is himself attacking Marriage, and not only fails to speak out against the state, but is openly cooperating with it as an ally.
