Executive Director, Lifeway Research
Scott McConnell serves as the Executive Director of Lifeway Research, an evangelical research organization, based in Nashville, Tennessee.
McConnell was interviewed for “The Bible’s Antichrist: Real person or symbolic?”, a WIVB.com special report.
Lifeway Research conducted a telephone survey of Protestant pastors regarding their views on end-times theology.
“It was surprising that there’s so little agreement among pastors about end-times issues,” said McConnell.
He says there’s more agreement about the “Antichrist” than other elements related to end-times.
“Half of Protestant pastors agreed that the “Antichrist” is a figure who will arise sometime in the future, and that’s distinct from some of the other responses because they were thinking of a single figure,” he said.
