People ask: Is Obama the Anti-Christ?

I have been hearing for months, "Obama is the Anti-Christ". His home state lottery of Illinois yielded the mark of the beast, 6-6-6, on November 5, 2008. I have never believed he is THE Anti-Christ. I see that lottery number more as a stamp of approval by Satan on the culture of death and it's number one candidate.

I'm very glad that Fr. Philip Powell, OP offers some catechesis on the subject, lest people go wild with open-shut conclusions. He discusses the subject of Anti-Christ using the Catechism of the Catholic Church and makes some interesting points. In part, he says:

Now, without going into the 2,000 year-old history of how Christians have conceived the Anti-Christ from scripture, it is vital that we understand one Big Truth about the idea of the Anti-Christ: his appearance is NOT some future event; that is, the Anti-Christ is not coming "some day." He has come and gone many times and will likely come and go many more.

So, is he THE Anti-Christ?

Go read: Is Obama the Anti-Christ? at Father's blog to read his thoughts.
