Moscow: The advancement in technology may bring humanity closer to the arrival of the Antichrist, believes the head of the Russian Orthodox Church. The Russian Orthodox Church head added that electronic devices such as smartphones are a threat to humanity.
The head Kirill asserted that the Orthodox Church is not against any technological progress but that he is worried that such devices can be used to control the people of the world.
The patriarch of the Russian Church also said that he is concerned that such devices can reveal the exact location of places and people, their interests, likes and dislikes and the what an individual is scared of. All these things, according to Kirill can lead to ‘centralised’ control.
The head of the church further linked centralised control with the coming of Antichrist according to Christian beliefs.
“Antichrist is the person who will be at the head of the world wide web that controls the entire human race,” he told AP.
