    has anyone seen this? it blew my mind. i got it from an artical from the CR website of ads by google.
    it says this about it:
    The official title of the pope is "Vicarius Filii Dei", which translated is, "Representative of the Son of God". To confirm, the Catholic newspaper Our Sunday Visitor of April 18, 1915 wrote: "The engraved letter on the pope's Mitre is as follows: 'Vicarius Filii Dei '". Since in Latin certain letters have numerical values, we only need to add them up to come to 666.
    any thoughts?

    I bet if I shuffle some numbers around, I could make LeoSalinas22 into 666.

    The number in Revelations is mistranslated, it should be 616 rather than 666.

    Where do you detect, hostility?

    Kiwi states there is a mistranslation...I'd like to see more on that.

    Dondi to me basically states these number games and codes abound everywhere...

    Although since Catholics are Christians, Catholics are the group that made a valiant effort 1700 years ago to unify, codify and identify Christians by gathering the churches and learned of the day and cannonizing what we today use as the bible....couldn't it actually be constued to be hostile for one to identify the leader of the largest Christian organization in the world as the devil?


    Could it be that mirror thing?? What you see in others is an indication of traits within yourself which you dislike? I hate that mirror....

    :eek: look, people, all i am saying is that i read the article on ads by google about revelation 17, identity of the next pope. just read it if you want. just don't say that my name will be 666, or that i am like the pope carrying around a staff of the the dead Christ everywhere i go because i am not down with that, or that 666 is actually 616. every translation i own has 666 in revelation 13. also, enought with this mirror thing. there is no such thing.

    ::giggle::


    But wil!! Don't hate the mirror, man. Sure you can't turn away from the damn thing, but one can change one's behaviour... then the mirror smiles back, no?

    :)

    Hey Dondi, new avatar? Who is that little guy? He's cute. Miss the rainbow, though.

    And yes, more from kiwimac on 616 please.

    And I'll have a rum and coke.

    Thanks.

    or perhaps we cant figure it out yet, because it hasnt unfolded yet. if you were to tell people back in the 1800's that in the future they would buy things instantly across the other side of the world and to do it you would use 16 numbers. it means nothing to them, but because credit cards came about that riddle ended up making sense.

    (I'm starting with the man in the mirror...)

    I think that's how G-d is. A person might think it's a ridiculous riddle, but in the end, it all makes sense.

    the number 666, the name, or mark, of the wild beast of Revelation chapter 13.
    The Bible book of Daniel sheds much light on the meaning of symbolic beasts.

    A mere number trick.... Doesn't impress me personally... As someone else said, I can make 666 connect to anything, I used to like to make "scary connections" to the number 17.... All world disasters and such I would find a way that they had some connection to 17....

    It is as simple and as stupid as the "books tell the future" crap... Where you can take any book manily people use the bible... and can show you on pages like the assassination of kenedey and such.... Well with so many words you could make it say anything... I could make the bible say I am god..... So yeah... Mere tricks.


    I would have expected more than that....

    6 is ALSO, the mark of MAN.... It is a sign of imperfection..... Three times to show how imperfect... Kind of hitting it home.

    I meant no offense. It was like wil said, too many people are playing the numbers game with this 666 thing and coming out with all kinds of interpretations of who it could be. Many believe that it could possibly be the Pope because of the status he has in influencing the Catholic church (and some protestants, I might add). I, for one, am doubtful it is the Pope. My feeling is that the Anti-Christ would have a much broader influence that the Pope has. He would have to appeal to the Muslims, Buddhists, Jews, and Hindus as well as all the other derivative religions.

    The new avatar? It is in fact...Dondi. When I was young lad, my uncle used to call me "lil ole Dondi". He asked me if I ever heard of comic strip "Dondi". I had no idea. Apparently it was about a little Italian orphan boy who followed the American troups around during during WWII. I fail to see the resemblance, as I have dirty blond hair and blue eyes and not a shred of Italian in me. But I've adopted the name as my avatar in his memory.

    That may be true also. The only place in scripture that even mentions the Anti-Christ is I John 4:3:

    "And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."

    Here it is apparently speaking of a "spirit of antichrist", not a particular man, but speaking in general terms an essence of a negative attitude about God or Christ that will permeate society, and in fact in John's time was already present.

    <---BTW, can you take me seriously with this avatar?

    Let's see... In my bible it say 1st John 4:3 But every inspired expression that does not confess jesus, does not originate with god. Furthermore, this is the antichrist's [inspired expression] which YOU have heard was coming and now it is already in the world...

    Inspired expression, hmmm I also find "It is already in the world" interesting.. What you make of that final part? Also again the key point in the bible in revelation... the 666 thing it says that is man's number not just A man... so it has to be all us?

    Indeed I can take you seriously.... The kid looks like he has a switch blade behind his back and is up on Ice...... And those two beadly little black orbs he calls eyes.... They'll swallow your soul.

    --EDIT--

    DONDI! Also look at the first verse in that part....

    number one reads... Beloved ones, do not believe every inspired expression but, test the inspired expressions to see wether they originate with god, because many false prophets -have gone forth into this world.-

    lol...Be careful not to look directly into them. Do they not look like the kid in "The Grunge"?

    But I think it goes in line with what Jesus said in Matthew 12:30:

    "He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad."

    And he said a similiar thing concerning someone who the disciples saw was not of their group, yet doing things in Jesus' name in Mark 9:38-42.

    "And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
    But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
    For he that is not against us is on our part.
    For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea."

    I tend to look at the term antichrist, not to mean so much as against the man, that is Jesus Christ, but rather against that which He stood for and that which He taught.

    ETA:



    Precisely!

    Yup I'd go with that Dondi, as I placed in my edit on the previous post... it shows that the antichrist is many... and is here already... So I would then connect to that the number, 6. And it shows that man, in vast numbers makes the antichrist as he is imperfect and in more ways than one agaisn't god knowingly or unknowingly....

    Well, if you look at the number 7, it is a recurring theme and seems to be a number of completion, the number of God: Seven days, seven spirits of God, seven candlesticks, seven churches, seven seals, and so on. So the number 6 is just short of that. An incompletion of what God intended for man. To proclaim yourself as number 6 is to proclaim that you do not wish to reach the number 7, hence it is counterproductive or counter to God.
