comment What is the importance of reading the Bible?
@Caleb I did that and can't see in what way these answers do not adhere to the guideline. Is there something particular or is this an advance warning?

@CecilBeckum Do you mean Calvin disagreed with somebody over this particular issue? Where could I read more about that?

revised Why is the second beast of Revelation called the Antichrist?
I edited the topic to better represent what I am actually asking. I originally had a little trouble to come up with a decent summarizing title.

comment Why is the second beast of Revelation called the Antichrist?
While I do think along the same lines, this is not really an answer, but rather a comment. Also, the character of the beast (the second one) of Revelation is consistent with the character of an antichrist. This seemingly insignificant switch of an article makes the world of difference.

comment Why is the second beast of Revelation called the Antichrist?
My concern is that the meaning for the word "antichrist" has shifted away from its origins. Martin Luther and his peers at the time of the reformation identified the papacy as antichrist. Some say they were wrong, because the Antichrist does not appear until the very end of times, according to them. That statement completely ignores the fact that antichrists come and go in many shapes and colors.

comment Why is the second beast of Revelation called the Antichrist?
The second beast is undoubtedly anti-christian. However, in my opinion, labels are important and should be preserved as originally intended. Somebody somewhere has at some point decided: "let's call the second beast of the revelation THE Antichrist." I still do not know who it was and when was this decision made. Calling the second beast of the revelation THE Ultimate Antichrist of all Antichrists blurs the focus off the original concept of the antichrist in John's letters, which is anybody and anything that opposes Christ. There are, and have been, and will come many and they are everywhere.

comment Why is the second beast of Revelation called the Antichrist?
It is true that the passage you quote describes the actions of such an entity or person the modern christendom tends to call the Antichrist, but it does not explicitly state that it is the Antichrist. My question, why this entity or person is called the Antichrist, is still unanswered. I just call it the second beast, as it is written. Why would anybody call it anything different?
