THE WORLD IS READY FOR THE ANTICHRIST (Friday Church News Notes, February 17, 2023, wayoflife.org - The world today is ready to worship the Antichrist. Multitudes have rejected the gospel and mock the things of God. “Jesus Christ” is a major swear word, and the movies are filled with blasphemy and ridicule of holy things. The vast entertainment industry overwhelmingly falls into this category, and as the movie stars and comedians and entertainers laugh at the things of God, the world laughs right along with them. Blasphemous, Christ-denying books and plays and movies are loved by millions and given rave reviews in this world’s popular media. Influential publications regularly run articles tearing down the authority of the Bible. Millions upon millions of young people are deluded by the entertainment industry and the educational field into thinking that God is “evolutionary chance” or a mere “force” that can be harnessed for one’s purposes. The world gives its most prestigious titles and awards to those who deny God’s very Creatorship, such as when the 2006 Nobel Physics Prize was given to two scientists for their work in discovering the “the blackbody form and anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB),” which is alleged to be the “oldest light” in the universe and “comes from a time 380,000 years after the Big Bang.” Men who believe that a massive explosion resulted in the incredible complexity and order of the universe are acclaimed as brilliant. Yes, the world is ready for the Antichrist!
