He claims to be a Christian although Muslims would say he was Muslim because once a Muslim always a Muslim.
In like manor the Antichrist could identify with Christianity, have lived in Iraq, but come to power through a revived Roman Empire.
Bill Salus in the article that I quote below gives more good reasons why the Antichrist will not come from Islam. I think the main reason people are now believing that the Antichrist is from Islam is the impact Islam is having on the world and the Assyrian references in the Bible.
Apparently painting Antichrist horns on the obvious evil system of our time sells books but is is good theology?When he rises to power no matter where he was born he will identify with the pseudo Christian West much like Obama does (no I am not saying that Obama is the Antichrist).I think believing that the Antichrist is Muslim can be a big danger and a trap because I believe the real Antichrist comes into power through the wars against Islamic fundamentalism.It is also obvious that any system that unappealing to the West could never take over the world by force.So the logic of a Beast Antichrist out of Islam escapes me.
