Napoleon...

Why is he called the second Antichrist? What exactly did he do that was so bad? Trying to take over the world doesn't count since France would likely have done a lot of good for the countries under its power.

the antichrist hasn't come yet, where do people come up with this stuff?
who's saying he's the second antichrist, there's only 1 antichrist.

If your gonna call him an antichrist, then you might as well do that for every dictator.

actually, he doesn't even qualify as a dictator.

but they call nero the first, napoleon the second and hitler the third. some crap like that. I was just wondering what earned him this "distinguished" rank.

The Anti-Christ will probably make Hitler look good, but anyhow my guess on Napoleon is that like Hitler he wanted to "take over the world", but I really don't think Napoleon did anything terrible beyond engaging in wars.

Wasn't Napoleon christian like much of France at the time?

I really don't see taking over the world as something bad automatically. I usually look at the actual reasons for doing so. It's all politics anyway.

I've been puzzling over this for weeks. Why has no one else responded ? What's wrong with being ruthless, turning cannons on your own citizens, grabbing control of the government, slaughtering hundreds of thousands of people (look up some of Goya's pictures of the Peninsular Campaign), etc, all to just satisfy one's thirst for power ? Are my concepts of good and evil really that different from everyone else's ?

Nobody has responded because, although you have eyes, you do not see. Reread what I said. ;)

The 'ruthless' dictators are only previews of the real Antichrist. While the others can be seen as outright bad guys, the real one will seem like a nice guy to the ignorant eye. Only Christians will see his true colours. Remember, the term itself means that he will present himself as the saviour of the world.

What is an Anti-Christ? Is it not someone who is against Christ and his Nature. I believe there is Many Anti-Christs however there will be ONE that is deceived and given power by Satan. Napoleon was an Anti Christ because of his spirit and what was behind his Spirit. The same for Hitler.

Just my thoughts

Napoleon was ambitious and power-hungry, I'm pretty sure Christ spoke against such people. Then again, that's nothing compared to what the Anti-Christ is going to be. He'll be so evil that no one will ever know, anyone ever read the book "Wizards First Rule" by Terry Goodkind? It's a terrible book when it comes to morals, in fact, I was disgusted by it and would never read it again, but the bad guy was a very good example of how the Anti-Christ will be like, except the Anti-Christ will be much worse.

Don't read the book by the way, it's terrible for Christians, I read it before I converted. If anyone here has ALREADY read it, then I think you'd agree it's a decent comparison.

I love books that speak of evil men, because it shows how corrupted one can possibly get.

I think that is all nonsense, hysterical propaganda, just like the rest of the Bush bashers. Guess I'm one of those Texans that's going to hell with him.
Acts 17:24-25 (NIV)
"The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. [25] And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else."
