666 On Anything You Own

Is it acceptable for Christians to have 666 on anything that they own? For example, I have a check with the number 666 on it. Should I rip the check up?

Some with more fear than faith avoid numbers like 666 and 13 but the Bible nowhere forbids use of any numbers.

We are warned against accepting the Mark of the Beast on our hands or foreheads, and that nobody could buy or sell without it, but until that time comes, it's just another number.

Years ago my electric meter had 666 in it (and my electric account also had 666 but in a different place). But 6 years later I still haven't seen any signs of the Apocalypse...

TS, and Satan is the father of lies, John 8:44. I challenged you before and you ran. You use deception to further your own agenda rather than the truth.

You should really just stick with the scriptures, assuming they don't get too hot for you to handle.

AlanUK: ROMIITH is Hebron, meaning Roman Kingdom: 200+6+40+10+10+400
---TS on 6/13/07

Ts do you figure if you cast your spell enough times people will believe you, or are you just trying to conjure up a demon?
---lorra8574 on 6/12/07

TS To make ROMITH add up to 666, you would have to have an averagwe value for each letter of 111.
Now I reckon that is rather difficult.
But if you use M as equalling 1000, you have too high a total.
Can you explain your calculation.
PLEASE ... I asked before, but you did not reveal the secret

Lorra: 1Cor3:16 "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" ...

Well not in you...The Pope Reigns in your heart..."showing himself that he is your god."
---TS on 6/12/07

---TS on 6/12/07

TS, you body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, 1 Cor 6:19, but the Temple of God is Jesus Christ, John 2:21 and we become part of that where we are baptised into Christ.

The Pope has not entered into your body (or mine) and set himself up as if he were God. Nor has he "entered" the Temple of God that is Jesus, for the Pope was always within that Temple. And the Pope does not put himself up as if he were God.
---lorra8574 on 6/12/07

Lorra: The Temple of God is supposed to be in the Heart of the Believer. The Papacy has usurped this position in the hearts of every Catholic that bows in humble submission calling the Pope Holy Father keeping his traditions rather than allowing Christ to rule according to God's Commandments.

In effect the pope sits in the Temple of God showing himself that he is God...but he is not!
---TS on 6/12/07

TS, first you have to believe that the Vatican is the Temple of God, otherwise why would the man of lawlessness seek to enter? The man of lawlessness may be associated with the Whore of Babylon, but that is not where he is going to set himself up as if he were God. So is the Catholic Church supposed to be the Whore of Babylon or the Temple of God? 2 Thess 2:4.
---lorra8574 on 6/11/07

The matraya is the beast. He is alive. He will appeal to new age types, then become political. His charm is frightening, he will make Hitler look first grade. His words even on tv will cause many to submit. His arrival will be very swift. Most religions will unify under him. You, the few who resist, will look at your spouse/child/parent and wonder why they are under his spell, be frightened more by what he does to your loved ones, even YOUR clergy who will.. submit.

---MikeM on 5/13/06
---TS on 6/11/07

Also, almost all pagan, new age, and other cosmologies say something, something BIG is coming soon. The Mayans have said this for thousands of years, as do the Hopi. I am waiting for Mel Gibsons next movie, which deals with this.
If one of my thoughts went through your head, your head would implode from the surge of intelligence. It's great to be me.

Numerology is not of God. You can become totally obsessed adding up street numbers, house numbers, your supervisor, your dog's name, what have you. It can become an obsessive compulsion to add up numbers. Rather than focusing on how a name adds up, how do their teachings line up with the Word of God. It they don't, you know you have a false teacher/false prophet in your midst.

Pretty soon, you're counting your steps to Starbucks; step on a crack break your supervisor's back. It's becomes superstition/witchcraft, and fruitcake nutty.

**"The letters inscribed in the Pope's miter are these 'VICARIUS FILII DEI'. which is the Latin for 'VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.' **

In case truth matters, BTW, words are NEVER inscribed on mitres, which is NOT the same as the tiara, anyway.

I gave a primary source.

I'm willing to bet next month's rent you gave a SECONDARY source--which is inadmissible in debate.

I also suppose you saw a UFO land and Elvis and the Tooth Fairy came out.
---Jack on 6/9/07


Helwig [1612] suggested that the supposed title was an expansion of the historical title Vicarius Christi, rather than an official title used by the Popes themselves. Additionally, he said nothing about the title appearing on tiaras or mitres.
---Jack on 6/9/07

TRUTH, Part 2:

Helwig's interpretation did not become a common one until about the time of the French Revolution. Some later Protestant figures [nb: NOT RC ones] directly claimed that Vicarius Filii Dei was an official title of the Roman Catholic Pope, some claimed that this title appeared on the papal tiara and/or a mitre.
---Jack on 6/9/07

Jerry et all, we Catholics do call the Pope "Vicar of Christ, not Vicar of the Son of God, although that sounds fine to me. But you cannot go changing the title in order to produce a Latin version that will add up to 666. How would you like it if I took the title of your pastor, modified it until it added up to 666 and then accused your pastor of being the Beast?

The number by itself is just that. It is interesting that beginning with Adam, Kenan the 6th man, (ie: Adam, Cain, Abel, Seth, Enosh, Kenan) had been cursed by Noah. Genesis 5:9; 9:25-27.

TS. Calling Lee a liar is a bit harsh. Lee could be correct. Examin that verse again for yourself. It doesn't say the number of the beast is "a man", but the number "of a man". So, the beast could be an organization with the number of a man just as well as a man with a number.
---john on 6/9/07

Jack: This is what your fellow Catholics USED to say:

"The letters inscribed in the Pope's miter are these 'VICARIUS FILII DEI'. which is the Latin for 'VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.' Catholics hold that the church, which is a visible society, must have a visible head...., as head of the church, was given the title, 'VICAR OF CHRIST'." Our Sunday Visitor, (Catholic Weekly) "Bureau of information," Huntington, Ind., April 18, 1915, p. 3.
---Jerry on 6/9/07

Lee: You lie again...perhaps its just ignorance.

Rev13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for IT IS THE NUMBER OF A MAN; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).

How certain you are to reason away the Word of God Lee.

Part 2:

3. Neither title appeard on the tiara.

---Jerry on 6/8/07

There is a prerequisite to counting the number of the beast, the number of a man. The prerequisite is understanding. If you do not have understanding according to Eph.1:17-23, then do not count or even try to count the number, please.
---dont_rip_the_check on 6/7/07

Bessimer was right: "there is a sucker born every minute." Believing the number 666 as a bad omen shows how immature the Christian is. If you had a strong relationship with God, these numbers won't mean a thing. Except, of course, to reveal the AntiChrist in which God will reveal to those who know Him.

The number 666 to some is representative not of a person but a world system that is contrary to the Christian faith.
---lee on 6/7/07

For those interested in truth, the official titles of the Pope are:

Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ, Successor of the Chief of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, Patriarch of the West [Dropped by Benedict XVI], Primate of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province, Sovereign of the State of Vatican City.

He is also referred to as Summus Pontifex, Pontifex Maximus, and Servus Servorum Dei.
---Jack on 6/7/07

Jack, TS may be referring to his or her own titles. Any competitent Biblical scholar knows the 666 (or 667 depending on language) refers to Nero Ceasar as an archetype.

The style of apocalyptic writing uses images, events and personalities very familiar to the intended audience in order to convey the message effectively. Every word of John's Revelations was understood by the readers if his day, and those who kept the tradition, and it did not refer to any future Pope.

There are many things on sale with a 666 on, manufactured and worn/used as an act of rebellion to offend Christians. Some atheists now have bumper stickers with words like 'Jesus loves you but I think you are......' and wear fish badges with the word DARWIN across the centre and have given the fish legs. Best response is to look away but pray for the owners of this trash. Regarding other things that just happen to have 666 on - it's just a number like 667.
---emg on 8/18/06

Read Revelation,, 666 is not a mark on your body or on your hand. It is in your mind. The Bible says the mark in their forehead. Your brain is in your forehead. Many folks are being deceived by thinking they will be taking a physical stamp. Satan wants your soul not your flesh. If he can distort your thinking and deceive you as he did Eve in the Garden of Eden. Don't listen to the Hal Lindsey's, Jerry Jenkins, or Left Behinder's. Listen to God and his Word.

No reason to destroy things that just happen to have 666 on them. That would be just superstition. The book of Revelation is not your checkbook.

Only once, have I considered such a change.I had a drivers license, good for five years, with a picture of me that LOOKED like the devil, plus had the number 666******. Mercifully nobody mentioned the picture, but many, store clerks etc., noticed the 666. It got to be embarrassing. But I kept the thing the whole 5 years. The next one had a new number.
---Donna2277 on 7/8/06

Seems like a lot of people are worshipping the number 666 more than they do Jesus. I would have to say that is a problem. Revelation starts out with a picture of the heavenly worship of the Lamb slain standing in the midst of the throne. Thirteen is the Bible number for rebellion, so what does that tell you about that number? Man fallen short of the glory in all three realms (spiritual, mental, and physical) because of the rebellion of Adam is a pretty good start.
---L.S. on 6/9/06

We can get so carried away on these things. If it was say the number 666 on a T-shirt then I wouldn't wear it, but when it comes to other things it really does not matter to me. 666 is only a number until the Beast takes it over.

" I'll bet everyone on this list has a Bible that has a page #666 in it."

Can't read that page. Must tear it out, along with John 6:66. The bottom line is that "666" is the number of A MAN (not 100's of them) and not a check number, a total of your groceries, a page in the Bible, a shoe size, hat size, dress size or anything else. The very same Bible that told you about the number of the beast will tell you who the beast is and why "666" is used to describe him.

Yes it is acceptable to have 666 on anything that a Christian owns. If you read the Bible "the" 666 revealed as the mark of the AntiChrist is a mark received in a person's hand or on their forehead as a sign that they have rejected Christ and also have accepted and worship the AntiChrist.

I guess if you were born on 06/06/2006 (or 06/06/1006), you would have to get rid of yourself. That is why Revelation 13 says, "Let he who hath understanding count the number of the beast." No understanding, no counting please.
