the Left, &
the Antichrist

by | Sep 19, 2022

For the mystery of lawlessness
is already at work….
— 2 Thessalonians 2:7

France,…by the
revolution of 1789,
began to spread the principles
of that anarchy out of which
Antichrist will arise.
— G.H. Pember

The Left’s innate hostility to the moral system presented in the Bible becomes only more apparent each passing day. This study is intended to help both Christians and others understand the spiritual, ideological, and historical roots of this hostility, as well as its final result: the outburst of lawlessness that will consummate in the rise of the Antichrist and so bring in the end of this age.



The Left in America today traces its origins, not to the American Revolution, but to the French Revolution….In particular, its worldview is based upon the rejection of the Bible as the revealed word of God, and of the Biblical norms for guiding society, that was promulgated during the French Enlightenment. The result of such a rejection is, necessarily, lawlessness, and so the wide acceptance in America of such an ideology in our time has produced much of the chaos we currently see erupting around us….

Yet, while we can see the forces of the Left working to undermine the social order, we must realize that behind these forces is a much deeper, hidden power urging them on in their evil work. As Christians we must be aware of this power if we are to have a clear view of the current situation, and of how to stand for God and for His kingdom in these dark times.
