antichrist
i am a bit confused. there is a lot of christian folklore about an antichrist and all that, but is any of it actually based in the christian bible? the only solid stuff i can find is in the qu'ran wherein it says that there will be a guy who claims to be jesus sometime in the future, and jesus will come back and get rid of him, which seems to be the predominant opinion in conservative christian thought. as far as i know, the only stuff that references the antichrist in the christian bible is if you take a ton of verses from a bunch of different places and tie them all together into some kind of a narrative that resembles the muslim concept, which is what most right wing churches apparently do. i know the revelation goes into the endtimes and whatnot, but AFAIK an antichrist isn't in there. can anyone cite me some kind of reference from the christian bible where the antichrist is discussed? because to me it looks like more folklore than anything actually based on scripture.

Re: antichrist
Shouldn't this be in "bound"? The irony in THAT word now...

I could tell you a few of my observances here, like, a creative writing paper I did back in '91-92 area of my life & my comparing religion to superstition..., or when I went to a Catholic school & got into an arguement with a few nuns about Jesus and my voracious and adament arguement trying to justify my claiming of, 'Jesus was, like, one of the greatests worlocks. Ever! I think it's kinda neato!!"

But I got, in so many words, "removed" from that school. I'll keep my mouth shut and just wait and see where this discussion topic goes. If anywhere . . .


*****

Oh, and on another note kinda sidetracking, but hey I'm good at that. If anyone knows where one can rent that film from a few years back off the same title it would be much appreciated. I can't find it anywhere. Was it banned?

@Mongoose
Nothing if not predictable.
I always suspected the end of the World [forum] would be like this.

@bryant
Been a long time since I read the Bible so I'm afraid all I have to go on is a vague recollection of something in Revelation, which is probably the same thing you mention about the end times, but beefed up from reading and watching subsequent books and movies. There are some suggestions here but unsurprisingly, it seems to hang on interpretation.

Re: antichrist
All the mentions of the actual word from the KJV Bible:

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

And the main concept that you are talking about comes from Revelations 13:

[1] And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
[2] And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
[3] And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
[4] And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
[5] And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
[6] And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
[7] And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
[8] And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
[9] If any man have an ear, let him hear.
[10] He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
[11] And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
[12] And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
[13] And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
[14] And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
[15] And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
[16] And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
[17] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
[18] Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Many consider the "he" that gives life unto the image of the beast to be The Antichrist, but anyone who opposes the Messiah is an antichrist.

I don't think that movie was banned...

At least, before I moved to Glasgow (this Fall) you could get it on Netflix - I watched a fair portion of it on-demand. Have you seen it?

It's really not that good. Or rather - there were just many portions that were stupidly hard to watch, and I found myself asking - "ok what exactly is the point of this movie (other than to be "shocking""

and I mean... no one really needs to see Willem Dafoe's penis. especially in super-slo motion

I finally did and it was soooo f-ing LAME!!

I did quite enjoy "Bronson"(my kinda comedy, AND there's penis shots in it too, but not in a sexual way.) German flims seem to show a lot of penis shots too???? Weird. Basically, I'm just trying to say I'm LOVIN' my Netflix.

Just to clear this post up. I'm loving the foreign film selection as I've been able to catch up on many movies I'd wanted to see in the past. Not for the full frontal scenes in them necessarily.
