Oh No! It’s ANOTHER Antichrist!

It’s kind of amazing how often the Antichrist shows up. I mean, hardly a day goes by without some delusional “expert” in Biblical prophecy declaring the arrival of the latest Antichrist. Obama? Putin? The leader of ISIS? Nope. It’s the new atheist leader of Greece. Because of course it is. And the Worldnetdaily is all over the story.
