How Do We Respond to Claims of the Mark of the Beast by Vaccine?

Episode 580 Show Notes 

From the Show

This is really about idolatry and false worship. “The number of a man” mentioned in Revelation 13 is a reference to humanity: man was created on the sixth day and God rested on the seventh day. The number six in the bible is the number of imperfection, the number of man. If we put our hope in man, we will be condemned. The problem with idolatry is that it is an act of worshipping the creation rather than the creator.

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. What does the Bible say about sadness and loneliness, and what can a Christian do to overcome his sadness and loneliness?

2. Philippians 2:12 says that we should “work out our salvation with fear and trembling,” what is meant by that?

3. A recent question was answered about Caleb’s brother who asked what the “state of the church” was. Pastor Sanchez began his answer with a prayer asking God to bring the brother back to the church. What would you say to those of us (like me) that have been so consistently hurt by the evangelical church that we left? I have been out for close to 5 years now and still follow God with all my heart every day. I am not convinced the church is still relevant.

4. Is the Covid-19 Vaccine the Mark of the Beast? Many of my Christian friends believe it is.
