Have anyone thought who is matching best to this description of the man of lawlessness? The slave class, is one I can think of since they made many additional rules, that not has a solid scripturally ground, about what is right or wrong for a Christian. Did Jesus told his disciples how to cut their hair or how they should practise sex within marriage? (I mentioned a few, the list is exhaustive). It's God who decides what is right or wrong. Not a self-appointed Slave Class. Remember, when Jesus supposedly should inspect the slave class in 1918, it was still serving polluted spiritual food. Would he chose a slave class serving unclean food?
2. The slave class claim in the watchtower, that they are in the inner courtyard of Gods temple. (sets himself up in God's Temple). Ref. WT 1978 Okt. 1.
2 Thessalonians 2
The Man of Lawlessness
1 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. 3 Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for (that day will not come) until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness [ a ] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
