Q. My question is, how can the anti-Christ possibly be a muslim when it says the anti-Christ will proclaim himself to be god in the temple? no muslim would ever say he is god, because in their religion that would be blasphemy. please explain.
A. Remember, the anti-Christ will be indwelt by Satan. The Bible calls him the god of this age (2 Cor. 4:4) and says the whole world is under his control (1 John 5:19). As far as Satan is concerned he is the god of this world. He won’t consider himself to be a member of any religion, but the object of worship for all religions (2 Thes. 2:4). According to Rev. 13:4 the world will agree and worship him as such.
