He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son (I John 2:22). And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world (I John 4:3). For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist
Hmmm ... I can think of a particular "prophet" who definitely denies the Father and the Son (in fact, he calls it "blasphemy") and who denies that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh as the Son of God, but thinks he was merely another prophet ... I'll give you a hint. St. John is buried in a land, once Christian, now ruled by followers of this particular antichrist ...

At least Catholics have better things to do than to sit around idlely waiting for the end of the world.
