Don’t you forget now, even though this guy is insane, all those creationist out there literally believe that if the mark of the ‘beast’ appears on your forehead or hand, you “will drink the wine of God’s fury”, or whatever that means.

Idaho man sees ‘mark of the beast,” cuts off and microwaves hand

HAYDEN, Idaho — A man who believed he bore the “mark of the beast” amputated one of his hands, put it in a microwave and summoned authorities, Kootenai County sheriff’s deputies say.

The man, in his mid-20s, was calm when deputies arrived at his home in this north Idaho town Saturday afternoon, and neither he nor the severed hand bore any noticeable tattoo or other mark, sheriff’s Capt. Ben Wolfinger.

The man, whose name was withheld, was in protective custody in the mental health unit of Kootenai Medical Center in Coeur d’Alene, where he and the hand were taken by ambulance. Hospital spokeswoman Lisa Johnson would not say whether an attempt was made to reattach the hand, citing patient confidentiality restrictions.

“He put a tourniquet on his arm before, so he didn’t bleed to death,” Wolfinger said. ” That kind of mental illness is just sad.”

The New Testament Book of Revelation contains a passage in which an angel is quoted as saying, according to the New International Version of the Bible, “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury.”

    That is sad- I work with young kids experiencing their first episode of psychosis – one girl sat there and told me she had just eaten her hands – they were still there but a mess! – I feel sorry for this young lad that religion influenced his psychosis so much that this happened :(

    If it where ONLY the “mark of the beast” the church (1 Cor.10:32) are to contend with the Scriptures would not separate out “worshipping of the beast”, worshipping his image, taking his mark, taking his name or taking the number of his name.

    Any form of worship of the beast whether it is the taking of the mark or any other demonstration of following/worshipping is to be avoided.

    If one does not take the mark they will be killed.

    It isn’t just the MARK!

    It isn’t just the MARK of the beast we are to gain victory over; it is gaining victory –

    1. Over the worshipping of the beast (Re.14:11 Re.15:2 Re.20:4 below)

    2. And his image (Re.14:11, Re.15:2, Re.16:2, Re.19:20, Re.20:4 below)

    3. Over the Mark (Re.13:17, Re.14:11, Re.15:2, Re.16:2, Re.19:20, Re.20:4 below) and

    4. Over the Name of the beast (Re.13:17 below) and

    5. Over the Number of his name (Re.13:17, Re.15:2 below).

    The church of God (1 Cor.10:32) will not follow the beasts of Revelation, chapter 13.

    No man can pluck out from God’s hand those to whom He gave eternal life (Jn.10:28-29 below).

    None of the body of Christ Jesus will be lost (Jn.17:12 below).

    Jn.10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.

    Jn.10:29 My Father, which gave [them] me ( Eph.1:4), is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them] out of my Father’s hand (Jn.10:28 above).

    Jn.17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost (Jn.10:28-29 above), but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

    Re.13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the MARK, or the NAME of the beast, or the NUMBER of his name.

    Re.14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the BEAST and his IMAGE, and whosoever receiveth the MARK of his name.

    Re.15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the BEAST, and over his IMAGE, and over his MARK, and over the NUMBER of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

    Re.16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the MARK of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his IMAGE.

    Re.19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the MARK of the beast, and them that worshipped his IMAGE. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    Re.20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not WORSHIPPED the beast, neither his IMAGE, neither had received his MARK upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    *Waits around with Ian, deserves a good smiting, too.*

    Seriously, I think I’ve committed about 20 sins this year already. Minor ones, mind you, but at this rate… heh.
