“Before the coming of Christ, the Church must go through a final test that will shake the faith of many believers.
The persecution that accompanies his pilgrimage to earth will reveal the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception that offers men an apparent solution to their problems, at the price of apostasy from the truth.
The greatest religious imposture is that of the Anti-Christ, that is, of a pseudo-messianism in which man glorifies himself in the place of God and his Messiah who came in the flesh.
This anti-Christ imposture is already outlined in the world whenever one claims to realize in history the messianic hope that cannot be fulfilled if not beyond it, through eschatological judgment; even under its mitigated form, the Church has rejected this falsification of the future kingdom under the name of millennialism, especially under the political form of an “intrinsically perverse” secularized messianism.
