Beast's mark on hand


#1

What does it mean when it says in Revelation (can’t remember the verse 'cause I’m in college…don’t have my Bible with me!) something about having the beast’s mark on right hand and forhead? :confused: I have a scar on my right hand…hope that’s not it! :frowning:

Good grief, woman – are you for real? :rolleyes:

I DO have a scar on my hand from working two years ago in ladieswear (the tip of a hangar accidently scratched the top of my hand! GRRR!!!)…yes it is a joke but I’m serious at the same time…

You are overly excitable. You lack perspective.

Then again, you’re only 21…

:hmmm:

You may suffer from scupulosity.

How about I just don’t know…am I over reacting? LOL!!!

Look, when I’m 65, I’ll be laughing my head off.

Now for real, could someone please explain to me what it really meant

Paris, you have to “accept” the Mark.
This was an accident. You didn’t say, “Hangar, please scratch me so that I can worship Satan”. . .right?

Revelation has been brought up in a couple of threads. It is really tough stuff, mystical, layered, complex. It’s like. . .haggis.

You’re just starting out, so to speak. You need some nice porridge. Nice, balanced porridge like the Gospels and Acts. And Psalms. You’re not ready for haggis yet. You need to build yourself up first.

Take it slowly.

Dear Sister,

I asked a priest to explain the meaning of “the mark” to me and his reply was, “Catholics are not sola scriptura”… so, I guess that’s the answer.

As Padre Pio said, “Pray, hope & don’t worry”

Blessings,
Shannin

True…I WILL NOT worship Satan!!! I’m sure Christ Himself saw me trembling when I read that part in Revelation…

So you’re saying, I’m pretty much overreacting! :slight_smile: I’ve read Acts two times…am I missing something? I’ve heard that NOTHING that happens in your life can happen without God’s permission…but why did that scratch thing happen? :confused:

**Scupulocity **

The habit of imagining sin where none exists, or of imagining that a venial sin is grave even though it does not meet the criteria for mortal sin.

Scrupulosity may be overcome through Catholic teaching on the proper formation of conscience. In extreme cases, absolute obedience to a confessor or spiritual director may be necessary for a limited time.

Scrupulosity is not a “safety margin.” It is disordered moral doubt. It is disordered because it does not take into account Christ’s love and mercy.

Note that “absolute obedience” in this context is very different from the obedience in matters of faith and morals that all Catholics owe to a holy priest. If a person becomes scrupulous to the point where he regards everything he does as sinful, even mortally sinful, it may be necessary to ask a holy priest to literally instruct him on what he should be doing every hour of the day. Absolute obedience to such detailed instruction might relieve his anxiety while the priest helps him properly form his conscience.

How is it that you think I think it’s sin when I never even mentioned sin? I just asked a question…

Scullinius, I wasn’t putting words in your mouth. I was just saying that so you would know. I’m not going to argue with you here

Just take a deep breath and try sitting quietly for an hour.
