Q: A friend of mine believes that the Antichrist is alive today, and he even thinks he knows who it is. Could he be right? What is the Antichrist, anyway? — D.McK.
A: The antichrist is a fictional character. It is usually described as someone who rises to prominence by promising prosperity to a particular country or society but who really has more devious motives. Since the antichrist is fictional, it is not possible that it is alive or for your friend to know who it is.
The antichrist character has been successfully used to make good horror books and movies such as The Omen and Rosemary’s Baby.
