Famous People Accused of Being the Antichrist

Updated 14 Jun 2019 27.0k views16 items

People accused of being the Antichrist range from modern presidents to rulers of the Middle Ages. The list of possible Antichrists is as long as the time you've got to research it. But Christian scholars can't agree on the very nature of the Antichrist, whether he is one person, or a group of people, or what exactly he'll do when he comes.

The two Epistles of John, which are separate parts of the New Testament from the Gospel of John, mention an Antichrist or Antichrists five separate times. There are also references to false prophets in several books, as well as The Beast from the Earth mentioned in Revelation. With over a thousand years of scholarship, it's not surprising that possible Antichrists include every Pope since the 11th century, almost every president of the United States, head of a world governmental organization, monarch, or really rich person.

While countless people have been accused of being the Antichrist over the past thousand years, only a few truly standout as worthy candidates. Here are the most likely past and present possible False Prophets.
