Bahá'u'lláh & Beast (9:0)
Basis for Christian concern: Since Bahá'u'lláh ("the Prince of Peace") promotes world peace and disarmament, there is fear that this might make Him the Beast/Anti-Christ. (9:1)
The followers of the Beast (rev 19:20) worship his image, and of course Bahá'ís do NOT worship the image of Bahá'u'lláh. (9:2) see
The Beast in rev 19:19, who, with the kings of the earth and their armies are to make war on the Return of Christ, is nowhere in the Bible equated with the Anti-Christ and there is no basis for claiming that the Anti-Christ is the Beast. The "Beast" refers to the rising of an destructive element in Islam which would alter Islam to it's very core.
