yeah, and the date of 666 came and went.

Funny how that number is "patented" or "trademarked" to the devil. Big whoop. its just a number.

Actually if you read the Book of Revelations (New Testament), the "mark of the beast (666)" is actually reference to a name, not a physical mark. Hollywood and The Omen has mothers looking for a physical mark.

I'm not afraid of it.

I just consider it as something In the holy book.

The number refs the mark of the beast or the anti-christ.
It has no power whatsoever. If you are a Christian, satan is a toothless tiger and has already been defeated.

yeah. the general theme was 'fear god' when it shouldve been 'keep god in your heart and follow his values'

i hate institutions that function with the 'fear god'/'youll burn in hell for this and that' attitude.

Why are Christians Afraid of 666?Christians are not "afraid" of the Mark of the Beast, because we are already protected from him.

Read Revelation (no "s"). But unless you really like the "Thee" and "Thou" stuff of the King James, read it in a good paraphrase ... like the J.B. Phillips or The Message. You'll appreciate it more.

Semi-agreed. I'm not sure of the exact number, but '666' is not the real 'number of the devil'.

Karl or someone else may have some other etymological knowledge on this topic, but I think the 666 is actually derived numerologically from the name CAESAR somehow. I used to know the full explanation for this like 10+ years ago, but it's escaping me now.

Okay, check this out if you're really interested to know about 666:

The entry is locked, at least, and most of what I read corresponds to what I remember about the number.

Interesting stuff.

Not the name Caesar, but the title Caesar (Emperror). Nero Caesar. Emperror Nero. One of the first to prosecute Christians. In the Gospel of John, they call him the beast.

Karl or someone else may have some other etymological knowledge on this topic, but I think the 666 is actually derived numerologically....I think too many people are putting the emPHAsis on the wrong part of prophecy. The mark is just one of several keys which will confirm who the antichrist is.

Followers of the God of the Bible will know who antichrist is ... and avoid his devices (including the mark). Those who are still confused and following their own wisdom will be fooled by the antichrist. The point is not to "major on the minors" ... but to not be deceived.

(P.S. Nearly every generation of Christians -- starting way back with the time of the suriving apostles -- has thought/hoped they were living in the End Times. Bible Prophecy can be very confusing and distracting....)

Well, yeah it was quite fun. All those people praying and expecting the end of times. Some people even knew the exact time. But it didn`t happen.

I was told that it was a dumb movie where, satan/devil kills the person and leaves 666 print on their forehead.
