The world must be prepared for the Man of Sin...

An atheist website which seeks to convince people to abandon Christianity and which may be found here, lists the following objectives:

Welcome to

The time has come to abandon Christianity.

Objectives: to advocate against the widespread acceptance of the story of Jesus Christ as written in the Holy Bible; to advocate prescinding the infiltration of Biblical conscience into law and the courts; to reveal and expose the absurdity of the supernatural claims of the scriptures of the Holy Bible; to prevent the loss of human energy being wasted through religious practice resulting from the interpretation of the text of the Holy Bible; to prevent further justification of actions causing death and destruction from those in power of whom abuse the widespread acceptance of the Holy Bible as truth; to rally the support of reasonable thinking people into bringing about a paradigm shift regarding the support for Biblical indoctrination of children and adults; to hold the Church accountable for their wrong doings; to eliminate tax relief provided to the Church for spreading untrue and absurd supernatural claims; to save individuals from grief and misery resulting from their acceptance of false information proselytized by the Church; to redirect human energy from religious practice to reason-based societal and environmental efforts; to create a clearing for world peace by eliminating religious conflict--a major contributor leading to war.."

Visitors to this website are then told: This is not a hate site.This is a love site. With love and understanding: the intent of this site is not to spread hatred for those who believe in Jesus as God; the intent of this site is to advance the wellness of individuals and society as a whole; What makes this site different from atheistic sites? Jesus is not God nor a son of God: this site is not concerned whether there is a God or not; for the sake of no argument, this site allows the reader to remain believing that there is, or may be, a God; this site is specific in opposing the assertion that Jesus is a son of God; this site is specific in opposing Christian influence and control within social context; How does belief in Jesus harm the world? How does belief in Jesus harm an individual? Jesus is killing us: the focus of the world needs to be "the planet an everlasting paradise"* -- not whether Jesus is God or not; wars are fought defending false beliefs about Jesus; a person believing in Jesus is living a lie and is thusly in some respect a dysfunctional member of society; the media often reports instances of murders by people justifying their actions based on their religious beliefs.."
As I said here, "The new humanitarian religion, which is anti-supernatural, must absorb Christianity as it prepares for the entrance of the Man of Sin. Catholics who maintain a devotion to the Holy Eucharist and Our Lady [and authentic devotion to Our Lady presupposes total obedience to the Church's Magisterium] must first be ostracized and later eliminated as incompatible with the New Order."
"Erit enim tempus, cum sanam doctrinam non sustinebunt, sed ad sua desideria coacervabunt sibi magistros, prurientes auribus. Et a veritate quidem auditum avertent, ad fabulas autem convertentur." (2 Timothy 4: 3-4).
And that time is now. New Age philosophies are spreading throughout the Church. Homosexuality and lesbianism are celebrated. Even in a Catholic parish. Intoxicated with their own knowledge and learning, those who have succumbed to friendship with the world tell us that we must leave behind the "old complexes" and reject "backward thinking" so that we may evolve into more "civilized" beings who may then build an earthly paradise. These misguided souls are not interested in knowledge for the sake of truth, but for power and possession.
It was Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand who warned that,"..a much worse consequence of the idol of learning is the killing of common sense, which is being undertaken on a widespread scale in grammar schools, high schools, and colleges. One forgets the great source of wisdom which lies in our immediate contact with being, and how pernicious it is to replace the resulting world view, with instruction which draws its nourishment from doubtful psychological and sociological theories, and false, flat philosophies. Every immediate, true experience in which the voice of being speaks to a person, is much more interesting than the questionable theories he has adopted concerning the world and life. Thus it is that a simple, unlettered man, when he speaks about the world and his life, is much wiser, much truer, and more genuine than all the half-educated people who simply repeat the stupid theories expounded by their professors. The statement of a simple person may be clumsily expressed; it may be incomplete, and even contain errors. But it will always have a kernel of truth, always the freshness of a genuine contact with reality, and be free from the arrogant presumption of establishing a valid theory in the sense of looking 'behind the scenes' of reality, and being able to 'explain' everything. The dangerous error of the cult of teaching and learning reaches its climax in the ambition to improve, modify, or even replace natural, immediate, organic contact with the world and life, by an artificial contact based on so-called 'scientific' theories." (The Devastated Vineyard, pp. 85-86).
We are commanded, "Do not love the world or the things of the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, sensual lust, enticement for the eyes, and a pretentious life, is not from the Father but is from the world. Yet the world and its enticement are passing away. But whoever does the will of God remains forever." (2 Timothy 2: 15-17).
Who will be able to resist the Antichrist when he reveals himself? - which could be at any time now. As I mentioned in a previous post, Romano Guardini has provided us with the answer:
"One day the Antichrist will come: a human being who introduces an order of things in which rebellion against God will attain its ultimate power. He will be filled with enlightenment and strength. The ultimate aim of all aims will be to prove that existence witout Christ is possible - nay rather, that Christ is the enemy of existence, which can be fully realized only when all Christian values have been destroyed. His arguments will be so impressive, supported by means of such tremendous power - violent and diplomatic, material and intellectual - that to reject them will result in almost insurmountable scandal, and everyone whose eyes are not opened by grace will be lost. Then it will be clear what the Christian essence really is: that which stems not from the world, but from the heart of God; victory of grace over the world; redemption of the world, for her true essence is not to be found in herself, but in God, from whom she has received it. When God becomes all in all, the world will finally burst into flower."
Those who believe in their own intellectual prowess will succumb to the lie. They will be seduced by the Antichrist. Already we see the spirit of Antichrist seducing so many as they scramble to find teachers who will tickle their ears and tell them what they want to hear. But their end is destruction.
* "Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the "mystery of iniquity" in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 675).
