In the end-times, a false prophet will make way for the antichrist by declaring a "one true religion"?

Who do you think this false prophet could be?

Update:

Jesus warns several times about "false prophets" in the gosples.

Revelaton 13:11 talks about a "beast out of the earth" Some interpret this to mean his beast is the false prophet.

There are many other scriptures concerning false prophets.

    Everyone claims their religion is the "one true religion". There isn't a one, true religion. There are a lot of false prophets out there right now, so if you don't want to be bothered by a bunch of liars and idiots, don't listen to any of them. The one, true religion is the one that works for you.

    When a leader of the Christian Coalition gets a cabinet position in the U.S. government, that's your Antichrist. LOL! Just Kidding.

    Every belief out there says that a messiah of another belief is a false prophet.

    During the inquisition, the Jewish were tortured and killed for their beliefs that Moses was their prophet.

    Those who believe in Allah are touted as being wrong because of their belief in Allah and that Mohammad is their prophet.

    There are times when Christian's were persecuted for their beliefs with Jesus as their prophet.

    Pick a belief and there is someone who will say they are wrong and that their prophet or leader is the Antichrist or some other evil person. One day that person will lead to the end of the world, well personally, I'll wait till the end of the world to see who's right.

    Either way, I'll be spending my time with Buddha, Dalai Lama, and other intelligent people in the afterlife, whatever it may be. After all, most beliefs believer that a good person can still suffer damnation if they don't believe in the right thing. That to me is messed up.

    It's NOT Joseph Smith and the Mormons.

    Wow...Some of you just throw names out there.

    He fits none of the characteristics other than that he claimed to be a prophet. Besides that, you yourself can ask God and know who Joseph Smith is/was, if you have any kind of a personal relationship with God that is.

    The false prophet will force all to follow or be killed. He will take away their freedom to worship. There will be hard punishments if they resist.

    JS said: "We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may."

    Declaring "one true religion" is what Jesus Christ himself did so that alone cannot pinpoint a false prophet.

    All true prophets that belong to him have done it.

    It's the force and the bloodshed for not following that is most evil.

    Jesus said that HIS gospel should be preached meek and mild and "harmless as doves". People who reject it are to be left. Nothing else. No harming done.

    Everyone has their own end-time and so energy would be better spent getting to know God on a personal level and find out where he wants you and what he wants from you.

    All religious people make the claim that their religion is the "one true religion". You could take your pick of millions of people. We hear that from Christians every single day on this forum alone. They've ALWAYS said that. It would certainly be nothing new that would stand out as a sign that the "end is neigh" for someone to say that their religion is the "one true religion".

    Source please? There is no such scripture in the Bible.

    According to John 2:22, an antichrist is someone who denies the father and the son. It doesn't say anything about claiming to be the one true church.

    In John 2:18, we learn that antichrist is plural - there were and will be many who deny the father and the son.

    2 Thessalonians 2 talks about the man of sin, but does not use the word antichrist. The man of sin is identified as Satan, who comes with "signs, wonders, and lying wonders."

    Satan is the one who sits in the temple of God and pretends to be God.

    Antichrist's against or instead of Christ. The term applies to all who deny what the Bible says about Jesus Christ, all who oppose his Kingdom(organization or group). and all who mistreat his followers, It also includes individuals, organizations,and nations that falsely claim to represent Christ or that improperly ascribe to themselves the role of Messiah. to know them? read Matthew7:21"Not everyone who calls me Lord,Lord will enter the Kingdom of God..". Everybody pray to him.but not all.. 1John2:18"young children, its is the last hour(near end)and, just as you have heard that Antichrist is coming, even now there have come to be many Antichrists..:notice that the "many Antichrists" of 1Jn2:18 here referred to collectively as antichrist." Acts20:30"From among you yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw the the disciples after themselves" notice twisted knowlege that you hear in every sect. 2Peter2:1,3 "There will also be false teachers among you...also ,with covetousness they will exploit you with counterfeit words" Roman16:17,18 "I exhort you, brothers,to keep your eye on those who cause divisions an occasions for stumbling contrary to the teaching that you have learned, and avoid the....by smooth talk and complimentary speech they seduce the hearts of guiltless ones" They are many group who claim to serve God but reject his representatives, his visible organization.. well! you can see them in the neiborhood. find out why they are in division.their teachings which was not the same in the bible.sometimes they are similar.

    There is no such thing as a "true prophet." All organized religions are full of cockamamie fairy tales. In monotheism, prophets lead the cast of weird characters in every scriptural plot and sub-plot.

    It's all bull crap. Buy the bull if you wish (and the crap that goes with it) - leave me out of it.
