Text: 1 John 2:18-27
Introduction: The question now and then is what is the spirit that comes against the Ten Commandments, and player in schools, and in other public places. Today, we have seen people who want to take the name of God off our money, and out of our songs and pledges to our flag and country. It is the very spirit of the Antichrist, Since the days of Adam, it has been estimated the approximately 45 billion human beings have been born upon our earth. Today it is said to be 7 billion alive today. However, by any standard of measurement one might employ, the greatest human (apart from the Son of God Himself) in matters of ability and achievement is yet to make His appearance upon our planet: This is the man of sin; the Antichrist!
