I don't think it's the internet, what if your left handed? And you certainly don't put anything against you forehead do you?
it says "in" your forehead - could be an easy and obvious metaphor for knowledge and the brain
Stupidgirl and jjkenobi bring up the point about God being literal - that it says a "mark"
I addressed this already.
If technology is the antichrist then whatever knowledge you get from it is the mark
God may be literal - but Satan can read the same Bible we do - he's not going to be so obvious
Furthermore, to Disraeli - let me quote your quoted steps here
Based on my previous definition, I'm going to offer this two-step method of identifying the Mark;
Step1; Look around the world, and identify a world-leader openly claiming to be the returned Christ. That is the Beast, or one of them.
Step2; Note what symbol he is using to identify those who accept his claim. That is the Mark.
If the steps are carried out in that order, and the second step is not even attempted until the first step has been successfully completed, then the method is infallible.
If we are all aware of this - and we are - I've heard this nonsense all of my life - NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE any person who claimed to be the returned Christ - we would know immediately that they are a liar and no one would accept any "mark" they may demand of us
Again, I say - Satan is tricky - he won't be so obvious
but... hey, whatever helps you sleep
