Furthermore, the whore of Babylon is the woman who rides the Beast (see Revelation 17). Now if the whore is capitalism why would the Beast discard her? Doesn't make sense at all. However, if the whore is a one world religious system riding on the back of a one world political system, run by the Antichrist, then it makes perfect sense that, after unifying the world religions, he would discard them and demand worship for himself alone. All of this will occur during the Great Tribulation.
