Smart gadgets, smart Antichrist

In a recent television interview Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill warned that the widespread use of electronic gadgets provides the possibility for “universal control over humanity”. The “devil acts very wisely” in offering people such toys, he said.

“Such control from one place forebodes the coming of the Antichrist,” remarked Patriarch Kirill. “The Antichrist is the person that will be at the head of the world wide web controlling all of humanity. That means that the structure itself poses a danger. There shouldn’t be a single centre if we don’t want to bring on the apocalypse.”

The Orthodox patriarch advised people should be careful not to “become slaves to what’s in your hands”.

“You should remain free inside and not fall under any addiction, not to alcohol, not to drugs, not to electronic gadgets.”
