A lot of people who are apprehensive about organized religion seem to confuse God with Antichrist. They are in fact polar opposites. Antichrist will force his religion on you. History is full of examples. 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. Revelation 13:8 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: Revelation 13:17 God on the other hand has always given us a choice according to God given free will. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15 Antichrist is religion; God is faith.
