I’d dare say that at the very least, the “Antichrist” is a metaphor, and that both Christ and Antichrist are essentially the concepts of the Logos and anti-Logos. In philosophy, it would then be Logocentrism vs Nihilism, where Logocentrism is basically a focus on the concept of the Logos; a divine blueprint for reason, empathy (empathy is the emotional component of reason, as it seeks to understand the views and feelings of various aspects of self and others), and meaning/purpose. As mentioned, the anti-Logos is then Nihilism (along with its children postmodernism, Marxism, and deconstructionism, among others), which are essentially anti-meaning and purpose—”all is meaningless”, while sophistry is the form of logical thinking most associated with having a nihilistic worldview.
My viewpoint is aligned with Gnostic thought, which many believe to be a Christian form of esoteric mysticism, where Christianity itself is considered the exoteric religious practice. Gnosticism held that Jesus was a symbol of divine, intellectual, and heart centered reason, and it’s definitely not just cold machine logic, but logic coupled with empathy and love, so that those who had “Jesus in their hearts” were more reasonable people to interact with and be around. While there are definitely people that embody each philosophy quite well, and many others probably have a varying mix of the two depending on their own mental purity or depravity, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is just one person who’ll be globally recognized as THE Antichrist—unless of course he’s a fictional character that’s been planned by the Elite to use in the puppet theater we’re currently witnessing worldwide; they very well may throw in a world war, a famine, and a staged alien invasion while they’re at it.
I’m a big fan of Thoughty2’s storytelling and compelling selection of topics, as well as his fair and balanced approach. It’s not too deep, but it is an engaging listen.
THE UNITY PROCESS: I’ve created an integrative methodology called the Unity Process, which combines the philosophy of Natural Law, the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and Meridian Tapping—into an easy to use system that allows people to process their emotional upsets, work through trauma, correct poor thinking, discover meaning, set healthy boundaries, refine their viewpoints, and to achieve a positive focus. You can give it a try by contacting me for a private session.
