i saw my post count and got a sudden chill. catholic school has scarred me.
6 day 6 month of the 6 year.
I probably got that wrong but the day of the beast!
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 think you should read the bible.
hahaha like I do
Not all Christians are afraid of the number 666.
I'm not afraid of it.
I just consider it as something In the holy book.
i should convert to kaballah-ism or whatever they call it.
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.
what catholic school did you go to?...
The one with the cross up in the front. j/k
Not catholic at all..
Have you ever read/studied the Bible?
It's mis translated actually. The real number is 616 or 636.
haha i was commenting on what you said. you said the devil was defeated already. youre nuts if you think thats true. i dare you to start a williams sisters thread and youll see what im talking about. cya.
Catholic school has scarred you?????
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.
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.
Ronald = 6
Wilson = 6
Reagan = 6
6-6-6 = the fortieth President of the United States
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.
My dad won't go to church. Says the nuns beat it out of him.
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.
Nicky , a bible scholar too, you Will make a good " Guru "
mt stuipd friend said something stuipd and said that the pope will turn into a sea monster... i laugh real hard and he was serious.... he say dont follow the pope he will kill u LOL!!!
Isn`t it correct what I say?
I did a study in highschool about Christians as the prosecuted and the prosecutors.
Yes Nicky, all have sinned, get that and you're on your way to true Gurudom.
I will tell you something bluegrasser. I`m not just a guru, I am God. I am the Lord, speaking to you.
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.
society made it scary for me
I still get superstitious when my odometer hits 666, I keep my eye on the road closer etc. lol
Why would anyone be scared of this? I think it rocks and is awesome!!!!
I was told that it was a dumb movie where, satan/devil kills the person and leaves 666 print on their forehead.
Separate names with a comma.
