      I was talking to a friend the other day and a brief discussion came up about the antichrist. I didn't know much about what the church said about him, and it didn't seem like much of her information was reliable. So I was wondering if someone could fill me in about what the church tells about the antichrist, because ever since she brought up the discussion questions have been running through my mind and all the research I did on the web didn't seem to reliable.

Be careful as to where you read info regarding the Antichrist.

Also there are many prophecies from our Orthodox Father's and Saints that have written about the Antichrist...from early 3rd century to in our time.
Below are many prophecies relating to the end of times and the Antichrist...

Quote
The antichrist
In Holy Scripture the term antichrist has a twofold meaning. In a broad and general sense this word indicates every person hostile to Christ's teaching (the Greek prefix anti- signifies against). This is the meaning St. John the Theologian used to speak of many antichrists in his epistles. In a particular sense the name Antichrist signifies a definite person — the leading adversary of Christ who is to appear before the end of the world. The appearance of this definite Antichrist on the world scene constitutes the final and decisive sign that the Second Coming of Christ is at hand.
