Russian Orthodox Pope Says Smartphones Are Tool of Coming Antichrist

The Russian Orthodox “Pope” is warning that smart phones will be a tool for the antichrist to control people.

The Russian Orthodox Church, known as the Moscow Patriarchate, is an autocephalous division of the Eastern Orthodox Church. The Eastern Orthodox Church has many of the same idolatries and heresies of the Roman Catholic Church, but additionally deny Penal Substitution and Propitiation. In short, Russian Orthodox and Eastern Orthodox believers are not Christians because they do not trust in the Gospel. Unlike the Papists of Rome, the Eastern Orthodox church does not submit to a singular “Pope,” but numerous “Patriarchs” in one of its 15 autocephalous Churches.

The Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, whose given name is Vladimir Mikhailovich Gundyayev, says the modern technological innovation of the cellular smartphone will lead to the rise and reign of the antichrist.

Speaking to Russian media outlet, Rossia-1 TV, Kirill said, “Control from a single point is a harbinger of the coming of the Antichrist.”

He continued, “The Antichrist is a personality that will be at the head of the world wide web controlling the entire human race. Thus, the structure itself presents a danger.”

Kirill claims that diversifying ownership and operation of the Internet will help delay the Man of Sin and Son of Perdition as prophesied in the Holy Scripture.

The church leader stressed that “if we don’t want to bring the apocalypse closer, there should be no single [control and access] center.”

Ironically, Protestants consider Popes (particularly the Pope of Rome, but to a lesser extent, anyone who promotes a false gospel and usurp’s Christ authority as head of the church) to be the antichrist.
