The Man of Sin

By Stacey Cox

People have a keen interest in the future. “Itching ears” are evidenced by the popularity of astrology, fortune-tellers, and political prognosticators. Christians aren’t immune to a fascination of the future. But many are confused as to what to believe.

None is more subject to speculation than the sign of the coming “man of sin” or the Antichrist. What does the Bible have to say about this figure? What is his role in God’s work of redemption between our Lord’s first and second advents? That’s where Paul takes us Sunday, as we continue our study in 2 Thessalonians with “The Man of Sin.”
