This series on the mark of the beast is an attempt to show the dichotomy between the mark of God and the mark of the beast which is a counterfeit of God’s mark. This series is done in love although there are many warnings/admonitions/rebukes included in these studies of various religions and religious doctrines. It is not my intention to condemn anyone, my desire is to see all people come to a knowledge of the truth and relationship with the One True God (1 Timothy 2:4).
I have tried to keep the focus on doctrine and ideas but in some cases the names of men have been included. Again, this is not to condemn. My sincerest hope is that when the light of the Word of God is applied to religion, all men (including those teaching corrupted religion) may see the darkness of the religious systems that they are in and “come out of her” to embrace a relationship with the Most High.
All religions have truth and all religions point to God, albeit they corrupt His Image. All religions have some truth which is a gift of grace to all of mankind to draw us back to the Most High (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:4; 4:10). My desire is for people to keep the truth that they found in their religion but to be set free from the chains of their religious systems that they might walk in freedom in the Lord Jesus (Galatians 5:1; Romans 8:2).
As you read through these studies I hope you will keep these things in mind. My main desire is to see all people become the “little guy in His Eye“.
The research done for these articles was done between 2004 and 2010, I have since gained more understanding and have found that some of the information presented in these articles is based upon faulty research. As a result, as I get time, I hope to update these studies to reflect my growing understanding but they may not be available for some time.
