Rev Sandy Boyce – Length 14:11

Pentecost 25 – We are told that in the end times, before Christ returns, there will come a person, a human, who exalts himself to such an extent that he will declare himself to be God. This Antichrist will have the sort of values that are part and parcel of current Western society – greed, manip;ulation, deceit, bullying, and so forth – all of them contrary to the peacefulness of the leadership of Jesus. We are encouraged not to withdraw from the world, but to resist the values of such a nation-state in favour of the values of the reign of Christ.
2 Thessalonians 2: 1-5, 13-17
