Most people who have read the Bible and a lot of people who haven’t have heard of the mark of the beast. Here is what the Bible says about it.
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
This describes something that will happen in the future, during the tribulation. Many who have heard of the mark but know little about what the Bible says are afraid that they might take the mark by accident. If you are one of these people I suggest you read this: 666 and RFID chips.
Most have heard of the mark of the beast but few people are aware of the fact that God places a mark on those who worship him. Read the rest of this entry
Alexander Pope wrote:
A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring.
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again.
(In Greek mythology the Pierian spring was a fountain which was sacred to the Muses and imparted learning to anyone who drank from it.)
There are times when having just a little learning about what the Bible says can be a dangerous thing.
