666 Stamped W-2 Leads To Employee Quitting His Job

A man in Clarksville, Tennessee has resigned from his job of two years because he received a W-2 form stamped with “666”, which is known in religious circles as the “mark of the beast”.

52-year old Walter Slonopas says he and the company have had issues with the number before, and this was his breaking point. On his first day on the job, he was to be given a time-clock number of 668; however, due to a mistake by the human resources department, the number he got was 666. After making a complaint, he was issued a new number. But when the company upgraded their time system, he was given the offending digits again. After that, he says, he quit, but the company rectified the situation and he accepted their offer to come back to work.

But the mark of the devil just keeps finding him, it seems, as he was recently mailed a W-2 that had the number stamped on it. The company says the number is simply a way for them to keep track of how many were mailed out, but Slonopas doesn’t care. He’s quit for a second time, and says he won’t go back.

“I am completely at a loss for words,” he said. He added that he can’t file his taxes until the company sends him a new form.

“If you accept that number, you sell your soul to the devil,” he said.

  • tammi

    I agree with him. I refused a car liscense plate with that number. Hope he finds a better job and soon!

  • SIvy

    People really need to understand and know that Satan is NOT going to be THAT OBVIOUS when he comes. He is a deceiver. He knows that people are expecting him to automatically have the numbers ‘666’ stamped plain as day on him, but it won’t be. From what I hear if you add up all of the Roman Numerals on the Popes’ head gear it is 666.

    Maybe, just maybe, someone IN HR has a sense of humor. Maybe, just maybe, this guy is a moron.

    I don’t the number’s 666 is in my social security number. Should I complain or go do something stupid I think not.

  • Craig

    Millions out of work and he quits his job over religious brainwashing

    • d

      Agree, such stupidity. Sure there will be someone willing to work in his place. Hope he doesn’t try to collect unemployment.
      Like “religious brainwashing” cause it’s the truth. Most religious people are hypocrites.

    i would check his criminal background.maybe jesus is ouing him as a sinner.

  • Robert

    You pathetic worms who think that a number is going to condemn you to hell need to go form your own community in some hole in the ground. Real people with real issues will continue to hold this world up while you whine about your useless mythology.

  • Kim

    I had that happen to me. I also tried to get the situation rectified, but HR said they couldn’t change it. I was a single parent and very young. I couldn’t quit. I’ll never forget it, though. I also got a license plate with 666 on it. I took it back to the DMV. They said it was a series in that year and that many people refused the number. I hate that number and everything associated with it. Kudos to this man for quitting!

    Nothing like getting the number of a fictional character to make you quit your job.

    If any of you would really be offended by this I think you are a pathetic idiot.

    He is ignorant and superstitious. The Bible is mythology(go look up the definition of mythology if you don’t believe me) and the book of revelation was refering to the Roman Emporor. It was not even written for our times.

    • Brooks

      I believe in the Holy Bible and the Holy Ghost. I believe in God and Angels and I believe there is a devil and there are demons as well! It’s in the Bible… which happens to be the most-read, most popular book in the world! I believe if millions and millions of people believe in the Holy Bible, then there has to be plenty of truth to it!

      • Mar

        Brooks..EVERY word of God is pure and holy..stand firm on it!

      • Echo

        Millions and millions of people believe in the Koran according to your logic, you must think there is plenty of truth to it as well.

    Stupid. The chance of getting 666 is exactly the same as getting 555, 123, 987, or whatever other combination of 3 numbers you can come up with. This is about as dumb as quitting because your work number has 13 at the end. I just hope this fool does not get any sort of unemployment benefits!

    known in “religious circles”? do other religions than Christianity — Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism or Islam — have anything to say at all to say about 666? on the other hands, are Christians the only ones in religious circles?

    was the statement meant to be inclusive? kosher in religious circles? Valhalla in religious circles? jihad in religious circles?

    put on your thinking cap before you sit down in front of the keyboard in the future, please.

    This man is a sincere, pathetic idiot.

    • Gregory Johnson

      Yeah, well if people cannot get past this, it also appears in dates, as well, every month, we have times when the time is 6 hours, 6 minutes, and the 6th day, twice a day.

  • Jess

    Honestly it doesn’t matter if the Devil is that obivious or not. For religious reasons, anyone that believes in GOD does NOT like the numbers 666. I have had the numbers 666 in two of my account numbers, my confirmation numbers when paying bills, and even once had an address with the numbers 666 in them. I hated it. every time I saw the numbers I was reminded that it was the mark of the beast. I do NOT blame him for quitting. I do understand that people everywhere are out of work, have been laid off and so they criticize others who quit their job. but it just means now there is an opening for one of those who have been laid off, or for anyone looking for work. This guy just needs to pray, and ask for forgiveness, ask God into his heart and he will know that no matter how hard the Devil may try to weasel his way into his life. He is in God’s hands.
    Amen.

  • david

    As for the #666 the problem is It’s a rounded version of 2/3 aka an Irational No# the same as 22/7.NOT terminating in Math classroom.

  • Ruby Dillard

    I agree with him. If I were in his shoes I would quit too. I don’t think the “number 666”,warning in the Bible is to be taken lightly. We may not understand it fully or correctly but why take a chance!

    he is allowed to do as is right in his own mind and soul those of you who think different need to understand something about this numder it is going to start effecting more and more of us very soon and it is not to take lightly God knows your heart and soul you need to think about your eternity .Jay

    Give him a break. The Bible says that the world will think Christians are fools, and he’s just doing his part to make sure that is exactly what happens.

    As a Christian myself, though, I do wish my fellow believers would stop working so hard on that point.

    Walter is a wise/smart man to reject this number. Anyone who knows scripture Revelation 13: 16-18 would be wise to reject this number and anything that comes with it. Stand strong Walter. I’ll pray for you and when God closes a door He opens a window.

      • jim conner

        this is as foolish as the people who claim too have went too heaven and came back..the mark of the beast or anti christ will before people during the tribulation 3 and 1half years man will know him for the anti christ ,,, the first three and half years people will be mislead and think he is christ ,, he will apear riding a black horse ,,, at the end of the 7 year tribulation, jesus will return too earth with his saints , i, e, his saved people and then there will be the white thrown judgement for lost sinners and then christ will rule and raign from jerusalem for thousand years,,there is a order hass too how it takes place ,, go study escatolgy ,, i did know ,but not exactly sure now ,, but revelations does explain the end times ,, it is in three parts ,, paul had a glimpse of what was too be

  • Steve

    666 has nothing to do with today. When the Anti-Christ takes over the world, THEN everyone will be required to have the number 666 on their forehead or on their hand. Those who accept the number on their body will indeed be condemned to hell but not today. This guy is a religious nut case who doesn’t know anything about the Bible.

    • Jess

      666 Has everything to do with today. You sir, nor the angels in Heaven know when the world is going to end. it may happen today, tomorrow or 100 years from now.

    • Dark B

      Actually Steve you do not know anything about the bible , you really think that you will be marked with a 666 on your hand or forehead?

      Wrong, the number 666 is a mark for the beast it is a symbol it is not physical it is the idea that is the problem once you Accept Satan as your savior you have accepted the “mark” in your forehead meaning your brain and that means you rejected God somehow or someway.

      The “mark” in your hand is if you care for material things more than God, like money, a house , a wife, credit cards.

      People think it will be an RFID chip it is possible but that RFID chip implanted anywhere will be the key to buy groceries, spend and earn money, by accepting the RFID chip you are denying god’s protection and therefore accepting the mark in your hand.

      Once everyone realizes this then you will be prepared for how to deal with it.

      • chris m

        wrong Dark B.
        “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six,” (Rev. 13:18).

        666 is the number of the antichrist,,, the end times figure who will arise with the purpose of opposing God and God’s people. 666 is the gamatria of the name of the antichrist.

        In Greek and Hebrew there are no numeric characters. There are only alpha characters. For example, the letters a, b, c, d, e, f, etc. are alpha characters. The numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, etc., are numeric characters. They are different — except for the letter “o” and the number “0”. When the Greeks wanted to write a number, they used letters for numbers. The Greek letter “alpha” had the numeric equivalent of 1. The next letter “beta” has the numeric equivalent of 2, and so on. (CARM has a chart of the Hebrew and Greek numeric equivalents if you are interested in more information.)

        Therefore, whenever a word in Greek is written, because the letters are also numbers, every word has a numeric value. This numeric value is called a gematria. The Greek word for Jesus (iasous, Ἰησοῦς) has a mathematical equivalent of 888. Also, the Greek word for fish (ichthus, ἰχθύς) is 1224.

        The Bible is saying that the future antichrist will have a name that, when written in Greek, will have a numeric equivalent of 666.

    • jim conner

      right on ,,,

    • Jamey

      Those numbers will always be relevant because its a representation of Satan (and his following). People have been taking his mark willfully (selling their soul for temporal things) for a very long time. Revelation, the book you’re referring to in the bible discusses the time when man will have to choose between GOD (and death here on earth) or Satan (the mark-life on earth-condemned soul).

      Please dont refer to lovers of Jesus as nuts, believers who truley love Jesus will seem “nuts” to others who dont have that personal relationship with Jesus to understand why those believers say what they say and do what they do for Jesus (referring to non-violent actions).

      Imagine how many thimes the 12 disciple heard the words, you’re nuts, or crazy, are we no different from those who love Jesus years ago (they left jobs and families to walk with Jesus-the best move they could’ve ever made) and do what he asked (personally or through HIS words-bible)?

      The word for today is FAITH, through this deed, he will be blessed and this story is being used for the GLORY of GOD.

  • Juli

    The reality is that this world is managed through computers and to a computer this is JUST a number and not a vendetta against a person. He might want to examine the issue with his pastor because supporting himself and his family is very important and unemployment is very high right now. Having been unemployed for a while myself, I would be very happy to receive a steady paycheck.

  • Susan Herbert

    Good for you, Walter! The first responder, Slvy, must be a younger person. I happen to be a 68 year young woman who has grown up with the idea of 666 being associated with the devil. Slvy makes a good point, but if it had been a part of all his adult life like it apparently has been for myself and Walter, he might think differently. Who knows. I had to smile when I read the comment from Tammi. I, too, had the same experience when I went for my license plate. The clerk was a deadpan person and she refused to give me the next number. I turned around in the line and asked if anyone minded getting that particular plate. The fellow behind me said no, so I said I`d just switch places with him. As I was doing so, the biotch at the clerk`s office told I had to go al the way to the end of the line! Eventhough there were about 75 people in line, I marched my happy arse to the end. Thankfully, another clerk waited on me when it was my turn. By the way, she whispered to me that she would have done the same thing.
    Good luck with finding a new job, Walter. Be proud that you stand up for what you believe in, no matter what! 😉

    The Mark of the Beast will not be valid until during the Tribulation Period. He needs to study theology, and the Book of Revelation. The number 666 is just another 3 digit number. It follows 665 and preceeds 667. During the Tribulation, we do not know yet how the Mark of the Beast will be displayed. One of the common beliefs is that there will be a literal number stamped on the forehead or the right hand. Another view is that those persons who willingly accept the AntiChrist and the SYSTEM will be a part of 666 behavioral system. He is ignorant. Several years ago somewhere I think in Europe,not sure, the license plate prefix started with 666-xxxx. But to have the number 666 on a card is not the Mark of the Beast.

  • http://www.webpronews.com/666-stamped-w-2-leads-to-employee-quitting-his-job-2013-02 Mr. D

    Yeah, they are trying their abominations. The thing is they can stamp that on worthless pieces of paper however you are not giving up your soul just for it being on a piece of paper. Scripture clearly states that the people who willingly accept the mark on the right hand or forehead are the ones to be punished! Don’t fall for the lies. The bar code system that is found on almost all products use the 666 system. (First, middle & last double bars) are read by a computer program as 6######6######6.

    Don’t accept the mark on your right hand or forehead and you should be good to go. (According to scripture).

    well mr man,, u can put 13 or the number 666 ,the word of God says during the 7 year tribulation period ,rule of the antichrist , a mark will be given so u can do business and so on,,, but i am here too tell u ,if u know jesus as ur savior ,u will be already passed or raptured up before this time,,, , so go get ur job back…

    I believe a person has to do a little more than receive a randomly generated number on a W2 form to sell his soul to the devil. Please!! Give me a break!! I agree with the person who suggested this man go speak to his pastor/minister. I just feel that OK, maybe it has some Biblical significance but in today’s world of computers, a number is just a number and sometimes stuff happens randomly. No reason to get wigged out. But, the company should remedy the problem if it bothers him THAT much and I think quitting his job is a little extreme. Just my two cents.

      Got news for you Dear, Jesus was/is the First man of the 12 apostles, cause he chose the rest of them. Judas was the last to be chosen, he was #13 & he betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver which was money to them. Then he hanged himself for it. Didn’t enjoy The silver. He threw it away.

    • chris m

      I have to ask, how could there not be a God? Look around you. The heavens declare the glory of God (Psalm 19:1). Consider the vastness of the universe, the perfection of the balance of life, and the incredible complexity of the information structures in DNA. Are we to believe that the super-complex information structures in the DNA molecule are the result of chance? Is life an accident? What about beauty? Is it nothing more than a chemical reaction in the brain? What about morality? Are there any moral absolutes such as, “It is always wrong to torture a baby to death merely for one’s personal pleasure”? Or, is such a moral absolute nothing more than the result of chemical reactions in our brains? If so, how does one chemical reaction which leads to another chemical reaction produce moral absolutes or even logical absolutes? Is it easier to conclude that such truths are the result of chemical reactions and brain wiring, or that they are authored by God? Is morality merely the situational-based whims of people’s preferences? Is the beauty of a sunset and the wonder of a new born baby’s precious life a byproduct of the survival of the fittest?

    666 is a number used cryptically in revelations. it is part of a dream that is interrupted as the prophesy of the end of the world. Even if the christian mythology was correct, Revelations is understood to be symbolism and holds no true bearing for how the world will end. There is just as much likeliness that 666 holds any more baring in this man’s, your’s, or mine’s life than a big seven headed dragon will rise from the earth to eat the sinners on the earth. If you go by the thought that it is entirely fact then you better hope that out of the 7 billion people on earth you win some celestial lottery to be part of the 144,000 taken. This man has let fear and paranoia drive his action rather than logic and any real or perceived faith in christian mythology, this is not news.

    What I want to know is who made up the 666 thing in the 1st place and why were they not shot when they made it up. Eitherway this 666 has been going on to long and it needs to end this is 2013 not the 1800’s.

    • Nance

      This didn’t start in the 1800’s. It is written in the Bible: Revelation, Chapter 13 speaks of the beast and how to identify his followers. According to verses 16 and 17, they will have the mark or the name or number of the beast on their right hands or foreheads. Verse 18 introduces the number 666 itself: “Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Disagree with this is you choose, but don’t criticize those who believe in the Bible.

He wrote what the king wanted wrote and if you ever read Shakespeare he loved metaphors, symbolism, most plays had insane characters (Macbeth) and even changing history to make the royals happy (King John) in his plays. I am sure he is rolling in his grave laughing now on how many people stick to all his words he wrote just to make some rich monarch happy and to pay him lots of gold.

        The Bible is 98% textually pure. Through all the copying of the Biblical manuscripts of the entire Bible, only 2% has any question about it. Nothing in all of the ancient writings of the entire world approaches the accuracy of the biblical documents.
        The 2 percent that is in question does not affect doctrine. The areas of interest are called variants and they consist mainly in variations of wording and spelling.
        The NT has over 5000 supporting Greek manuscripts existing today with another 20,000 manuscripts in other languages. Some of the manuscript evidence dates to within 100 years of the original writing. There is less than a 2% textual variation in the NT manuscripts.
        Some of the supporting manuscripts of the NT are:
        John Rylands MS written around 130 A.D., the oldest existing fragment of the gospel of John.
        Bodmer Papyrus II (150-200 A.D.)
        Chester Beatty Papyri (200 A.D.) contains major portions of the NT.
        Codex Vaticanus (325-350 A.D.) contains nearly all the Bible.
        Codex Sinaiticus (350 A.D.) contains almost all the NT and over half of the OT.

  • Diamond Jim

    As someone who works in HR, I disagree with Larry. HRIS systems are a pain in the butt and these errors happen all the time…or at least they could. I’m sure it could be malicious as well but I doubt it. In all seriousness, the folks in HR are probably happen to see him go…sounds like a nut job.

  • DP

    Cuckoo, Cuckoo, Cuckoo!
    I’m sorry but the only thing that has power over you is what you allow.
    I understand the religious significance but his reasoning is quite illogical. If you are a true believer there is nothing to fear but God himself. The Devil has power over you.

    • IMBlessed

      AMEN! The devil does have a mark, but we humans have not been shown it yet. These digits are just numbers and nothing else. God has His children in His hand and there is nothing to fear. Fear shows lack of FAITH.

  • Cynthia

    That’s the right thing to do.

    • Robin

      Maybe the number keeps coming back because he IS the devil!

    • nedmorlef

      drug testing is the mark of the beast. you are convinced in your forehead and sign/hand it over with your right hand and you can’t buy,sell or trade w/o a job.

    • Rich Maher

      Get over yourself

    • Andrew

      So what is your point? You point out the numbers 777 as if you are a skeptic but then you quote scripture as if you believe. What are you?

  • Jeremy

    I wonder what this guy would do if he found a noose with the number 777 enscribed on it. I’m really curious where the line is drawn. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure the Bible clearly defines this…

    Revelation 13:16-18
    “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a MARK in their right hand, or in their foreheads”

    and again here…

    Revelation 14:9
    “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his MARK in his forehead, or in his hand”

    and once again, here…

    Revelation 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”

  • CD

    That # gave you a paycheck…shouldnt you just be happy you have a job!

  • Nolan wagner

    REALLY?! this is news?
    Theres people out there with stories that are way more important/interesting than this guy being scared of a number.

  • C.S.

    Maybe this guy was just looking for an excuse to quit his job. I had a phone number with 666 in it for over 18 years and never went to hell for it.

    • Nance

      You are not dead yet – duh!

    • fernanod

      you never died either , so how you know you never went to hell

    • Dave

      Not yet…

  • Kimmers

    I so hope Madeleine is about to come back home. Even this Mother wants her back where she belongs. Best wishes!

    • Kimmers

      Oops. I posted my comment on the wrong story.
      I bought a small steak for dinner just because it was $4.20.

  • Takethat

    People these days will try to justify using the bible for anything thing. Oh God said to hit my kids, repent Im clear, God told me to quit my job etc. Well I hate to tell you but in logical and rational minds Id say this guy and others sound Schizophrenic. The Heavenly father talks to me well in the old days you would be wearing the hug me jacket LOL

  • mayomi

    thank God you did not accept the number and God will open grearter doors of job opportunities for you. For the scoffers, hope it will not be too late before they accept the truth bcos the end is at hand and the events of antichrist are everywhere.

    • http://Yahoo Pam

      This person sounds like another nut!

    • nikki

      You are so full of it. NO WHERE in the bible does it say ANYTHING about the numbers 666 condemning you, or making you agree with the devil. You’re a fool. Besides why would the devil want his old fat self? Delusion of grandeur anyone? Get over yourself and quit trying to speak for God. Now some young able bodied person who needs work can get a job. I say good riddance.

  • Rob

    Dumba**! Is it tattooed on your forehead or the back of your hand? No. You’re good, now get back to work. For a Christian, he sure doesn’t know much about the Bible.

    • Andrew

      Stay away from that number it is a terrible number. Satan is real.

  • Jeff

    I really don’t think this is a coincidence. It seems to me that someone in human resources is messing with this guy. Easy target, too.
    BTW, is typing 666 evil at all?

  • Donamarie

    IMHO, I’ve heard of folk with a fear of the number 13, but, a fear of 666 is a new one on me. I would NEVER hire this guy back, he is playing with a deck of fifty one in my opinion.

  • L TOOLEY

    OH MY GOD !! THIS GUY AND MOST OF THE COMMENTS MAKE THE TALIBAN LOOK LIKE RHODES SCHOLARS……

    • mrs

      Rev 13:16 in the Holy Bible tells you the mark is 666

  • Michele

    666 is not the mark of the beast. It is old religion folklore. It must be nice just to up and quit a job. He better not apply for unemployment. Ignorance is bliss. I am a minister and this guy’s ignorance give religion a bad name. He needs to read the Bible again,

    • Badd

      Michele – if you’re a minister you should have knowledge of what the bible says. Revelation 13:18 says let him who has understanding count the number of the beast for it is the number of a man and his number is six hundred three score and six (666). You are right about one thing. The number is NOT the mark. Neither will the mark be a physical one.

    • Andrew

      I seriously doubt you are a minister. The bible is clear about this number. What kind of minister are you? If you are a minister and you deny what scripture says about the numbers 666 you are lost.

    • chris m

      The Bible is saying that the future antichrist will have a name that, when written in Greek, will have a numeric equivalent of 666.

  • Brianna2609

    How this story made headlines is beyond me. People who are that willing to quit their job over a superstition shouldn’t get sympathy. It would be just as ridiculous if I decided to take a job because their address was 777, or the company vehicle had 777 in the license plate, or whatever. I can’t believe this sort of logic is still controlling some people’s lives in this day and age.

  • Andrew

    I have to say, as a spiritual satanist, this is just another public stunt to spread to the word of god… All over his back. I’ve been a satanist for 12 years. Nothing but joy, love and fun. I have been depressed long since I was a kid. Now, with Satan by my side, I’ve never been happier. Considering Mark of the Beast as an evil symbol is natural now-a-days but without 3rd party reseach, you will only know what your told is the truth rather than go see for yourself. It is actually the other way around. 666, is symbolic for the Age of Aquarius, for this is when he will rule again. Bringing joy to the world, cleansing the eyes of the ‘blind’ and freeing us all from the harsh and hateful reality of modern earth. Have Joyful day! =]

    • Oro Blanco

      Oh, quit it.

  • Velouria

    LOL! Even if the “666” thing were totally 100% True, what does that have to do with a random number on a tax form?

  • Cindy

    :O I’m domed!!!! I make 16.66hr if u add up my hours for a week that’s 666.40 & my state refund this year was 666.00 I better end it all now lol

  • dave

    Does this guy really think that God would want him to quit his job and stop supporting his family because of a number??

  • Rich Maher

    Another goofy Jesus-Freak. These people are pathetic.

  • matthew 2424

    666 is the number of the beast Satan I suggest that the pastor read his bible again this man is right I would have not accepted it either… regardless.. God has a better job for him he will be taken care of…. Read revelation in the Bible.. Many folks go about getting tatoos and fornicatiing and commiting adultry stealing and lying, homonning, killing folks all of these will send yu straight to hell if you don’t stop and repent,, homosexuals will go straight to hell too no exceptions folks,,, come clean or stay away dirty…

    • nikki

      You are so full of it! Business don’t even like hiring religious people cause of all your ridiculous rules, dummy you need a job not them! Show me where in the bible it says being ok with 666 being stamped on a w2 will send you to hell. Show me where it says doing ANYTHING with 666 will send you to hell? He doesn’t deserve a job and he BETTER NOT FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT.

    • janet

      Guess I better kill myself then cause that is my birthdate lol

    • nikki

      You worry about you. I’ll worry about me. You don’t speak for God. Jesus said watch out for false prophets who spew hatred and bigotry in my name. Hmm sounds just like you!

    • Velouria

      What in Satan’s name is “homonning”??

  • http://Facebook.com/AbuNdstruktable Abu

    Ive won thousands of dollars of the years off the number 666 untill last year when I missed it – first time in six years – im cursed!!!!!

    • NYGramma

      Oh Wahhhhh! He was mad and quit his job. I hope he doesn’t have a family to feed. What an idiot.

  • jenn

    Some of you dont get why he quit his job. It was the POINT! He told them not to, they did, and than someone thought it would be cute or smart a** to stamp it in red on his w-2s.. as a joke. knowing how he felt about it. Thats the point here. He was mad…

    • Kate

      A separate company, that also handles the payroll for the company this moron worked for, are the ones that handled the W-2 forms. Meaning it is in no way connected to the people he talked to have his number to clock in with changed. Also, W-2’s are stamped in the order they are made and not with random numbers. His W-2 was the six hundred and sixty-sixth one made. End of story. There is no one doing anything on purpose here it is just a moron being a moron.

  • Jesus H. Christ

    What a fucking dumbass. Is this guy really a grownup? The problems caused by his silly superstitious nonsense are of his own making. I’ll save my pity for people with real problems, not those who base their lives on a book of fables written by Bronze Age sheep herders.

  • VanillaStar

    YOU ALL WHO THINK 666 IS GREAT! YOU FULL OF SHIT!! ALL OF YOU. AND TO SATANS DAUGHTER..LOL WHAT A JOKE…YOU WILL BURN BURN BURN IN HELL…WHEN YOU DO-YOU CAN SAY I TOLD YOU SO!! THE MORE PLEASURE HE GIVES YOU THE MORE YOU WILL PAY FOR IT LATER!! JESUS IS #1. DON’T FORGET SATAN WAS ONCE AN ANGEL..BUT GOD HAD AND STILL DOES HAVE MORE POWERS THAN HIM! GO TO HELL. I’LL LAUGH AT YOU LATER!!

    • jenn

      There is no point in arguing with them. They will hide behind their computers and rant regardless.

    • Alisha

      You are laughing while telling someone they will go to hell? I really hope you don’t consider yourself a christian. Because it is people like you who make us look bad. You are the reason people can’t feel free to speak about Christ because the loudest ones are often the worst example.

      • Vanilla Star

        GO AWAY!!! LOL… oh ya, 666 is the DEVIL. it’s a FREE country…for now..so i can say whatever i want!! AND YES I AM A CHRISTIAN! TILL I DIE! 666 IS NOT OK. OK, PEOPLE MIGHT GET IT FOR CELL #’S..OK IT HAPPENS..BUT THE DEVIL DOES NOT HELP YOU! AND YES WHOEVER IS FOR THE DEVIL..BURN BURN BURN..AND YES I WILL LAUGH!! LOL LOL LOL WHAT R U GONNA DO ABOUT IT? KEEP GOIN ON AND ON AND ON…I’M NOT! JESUS SAVES DEVIL LIES AND MUCH MORE! BE HAPPY WITH HIM NOW BUT IN THE END…I’LL BE IN A BETTER PLACE. GOD WILL JUDGE ME-NOT THE DEVIL YOU LOOSER!! AND YES JENN THEY WILL HIDE!! HAHA I’M OUT! HAVE FUN. GOD IS GREAT!

        • Lauren

          Oh, Vanilla Star, quit being a troll

        • Alisha

          If I’m looser, I guess you are tighter? Moron. You probably won’t even get that.

        • Alisha

          And just try to think how you will answer to God for laughing while his children are burning.

        • whatever floats your boat

          @Vanilla Star…Are you a member of the Westboro Baptists? No, really, I’m serious. They are crazy religious wack-jobs & you seem to fit right into that category. For one thing, you type in CAPITAL letters. Anyone who does that is either crazy or stupid….or both. And you sound like one of those nuts that have read the “Left Behind” series and actually believes in “The Rapture,” which is a misnomer. The authors of the book series MADE IT UP….Sure they got the idea from the Bible, but it was taken out of context. I have to say though, its people like you who make people like me into non-believers, so thanks for that. And yeah, I’m going to hell and burn while you laugh, blah, blah, blah…..You should ask your doctor to up your happy pill dose because you seem very angry…Oh and crazy.

    • Alisha

      You’re laughing as you’re telling someone they are going to go to hell? You should realize that’s not modeling appropriate Christian behavior. That is not a righteous thing to say, but self-righteous. You make Christians look bad by posting comments like that, as though we are all judgmental hypocrites damning others left and right. It doesn’t work that way. It’s the devil’s work to say that’s the Christian way.

    • jackie

      cant burn in hell if we already living there

    • james

      chill “person”, chill. u must be one that goes a wild type of church that takes everything literal. have a good day

  • lui

    666 is the mark of the beast.. be aware. this calls for wisdom.. the beast the the u.s. we are all fucked..

  • J

    Ascribing taboo magickal powers to a number (eg a symbol) merely reinforces the fear that people hold it in and GIVES IT POWER. Look up tulpas or egregores for more information.

    • jenn

      He did, they did it again.. He told them again. They fixed it again. Than some idiot stamped it on his W-2s to be funny.

      • Lauren

        I doubt they put 666 on his W-2 to be funny. Quite frankly, he doesn’t sound smart enough to be out in the workforce to begin with.

    • NYGramma

      What action? It’s a random number. It means nothing.

  • Anne Fanucchi

    I do not think I would quit my job because of the number, but I would speak up and let HR or payroll know that I was not happy about it and ask that the action by them not be repeated…..

    You have to be kidding me? I should have jumped off a bridge by now. I’m the 6th child, born on the 6th day in the 6th month. I am a Christian and a child of GOD.

    Thank science I don’t buy into all that religious mumbo jumbo!

    • james

      i agree with you partly, with the science part, but if there is a man that speaks up someday and says “you must receive this number on your head or hand, dont say i didnt warn you”. you have a good sir

      • http://Yahoo Jojo

        I hear you…but really James, there are real believers who actually have a brain and can sort out the issues. I know so many people who say they’re Christians but do all these superstitious things and believe if they do this/this will happen. God is either in charge of their lives or he isn’t…you know what I mean!!! He will show himself to you if you ask him to. Try to see past the MORONS!!!!!!

    • http://jcwitmer.blogspot.com Jake Witmer

    I am a Christian, but when I got a cellphone no. that started with 666 I had to giggle…. I told clerk “Well, if the Devil thinks he will have a hotline through me, he’s got another thing coming !”. It has been interesting to see people’s reactions when I give them my phone no. though.

  • janet

    than I better kill myself because thats my Birthdate lol….

    • james

      no, dont kill yourself. youre needed in the world. thats an interesting date for a birthday. have a good day

  • Alicia

    I would have laughed! 😀

  • Skye

    I had a somewhat similar experience. I was shopping and at the checkout, my final payment was $666.06. I just reached over and grab a couple of candy bars near the checkout to alter number. I probably wouldn’t have quit my job, esp in this economy but I would’ve spoken up again.

    • james

      when i comes to the 666 number is more in the area that when someone in the future “makes” you put that number on your forehead or hand, then its time to say ‘adios amigo”. have a good day

  • Duderino

    Dude, it is just a number. Geez. Brainwashing runs deep in some circles I guess.

    • Roxy

      So true, 1/2 the world is brainwashed.

  • lui

    this is a sign. its all part of their evil plan.. this calls for wisdom.. its in revelations scriptures.. read it

    • james

      no evil plan. but just wait till in the future sometime some guy says everyone must have this number, like a microchip, which i do believe it will be and given at birth. thats the time you have to make that decision. have a good day

  • http://jcwitmer.blogspot.com Jake Witmer

    This is hilarious. The IRS steals more than half the wealth of the nation, and almost all of the capital savings necessary to start new businesses. The Fed then steals the little that’s left over. Capitalists somehow manage to innovate anyway, in spite of their irrational religious upbringings.

    Religion finally lines up with the rationality of not wanting to be a slave –not for any good reason, but because you don’t like the slave number that’s been assigned to you. The only thing more hilariously appropriate would be if this guy went on to rebel against the government, and was the figurehead of a movement that succeeded in ridding us all of the bloated and oppressive US government.

    …Or people could get a brain and learn about real heroes like Vivien Kellems.

    How stupid to quit a job over something so assinine. Grow up.

    • Vanilla Star

      IT’S HIS CHOICE! NOTHING WRONG WITH IT!

    • james

      agreed, but there will be a time in the future when someone will say you have to get this “666” number in order to do anything. have a good day

      • Jackie Renfroe

        And when the government (or anyone else for that matter) tells you in order for you to purchase anything you have to get the sign of the beast…that my friend is when you’ve sold your soul to the devil. 666 is scripture. The Word of God is true from beginning to end!

  • Jojn

    That’s taking things a little too literally.

    The passage was written in Hebrew… can’t make the symbols but their names are VAV_SHEMEKH_FINALMEM (I think)

    In Roman numerals 666 = DCLXVI (if I remember correctly)

    In binary (most used system today) it’s 1010011010.

    and what happens if a new numerical system is used for computing

    so which is the “mark” of the devil?

    I really think the “number” is figurative

  • Roxy

    so true, half the world is brainwashed.

  • jackie

    i wonder how boring his home life is that he only has time to complain about a number.. many people want jobs and cant get them and thisjerk quits. it one thing to have beliefs which in 1 way or another we all do but to quit?? really…

  • matthew

    I am a christian, I believe in the end times coming. I probably wouldn’t have liked to have a clock in number of 666 but I sure wouldn’t quit or refuse to file my taxes because of it. I do not think having that number around means you have sold your soul to the devil, that is just ridiculous superstition.

  • http://Yahoo Jojo

    Ok…first of all, many people will be taking the mark of the beast and it will somehow be part of the body….chip implant maybe???? anyway…it is unlikely that you alone are the one and only person who will take it and it will not realize any consequences….if you really are a believer, stop this religious superstitious junk. You make real believers look like morons!

  • k, kirschner

    • fruit salad

      you are a complete and total moron

  • Trey

    He doesn’t need to worry about those numbers. He should read Revelation Ch 1 v3.

  • mike Tom

    He is a little too superstitious if he believes that those numbers are a bad omen. They are simply numbers that identify the Beast. Find and read a book called “National Sunday Law” to find out who the beast is, and what he’s all about. Number sometimes do just mean a sum, and nothing more.

  • cat

    I can understand why he did what he did . But have we all been misinformed about this number ? It was written in another language and what was the original number ? Was there even a 6 and has it been translated correctly ? One thing I do know is most people don’t read their Bible from beginning to end . I have and I chose the New World Translation . Reading it correctly gave me an understanding that I didn’t have before .Think about it if you read a Stephen King novel in bits and pieces taking from here and there would you ever understand the story ? I think not . I don’t feel that those who haven’t read The Bible have any real justification in discussing it’s contents .Whether you believe it or don’t , if you want to talk about it , read it from front to back ,the way any book should be read .

  • Skooter

    I guess we all have our hell days at work. I’m sure someone looking for work would gladly take his.

  • Robin

    The Bible considers the number 7 to be perfection. So 6 would be short of perfection. Stating 6 three times as 666 means gross imperfection. The ‘mark of the wild beast’, or this 666, is a mark of human organizations that support…whether knowingly or not, the work of the devil.. in other words putting trust in man over God in hopes man can solve our problems. We shouldn’t put our faith in man or the things in the world which are all ruled by Satan. The mark is figurative, not literal. So having a literal number of 666 used as an employee number, post office box, etc. is nothing more than a number and is not used as this ‘mark’ and is not evil.

    • Chris

      That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. There is no god, no devil, just mankind on this earth. Any visions of a god are manifested through solace to comfort those who fear death and wish for control through fear. It’s a scare tactic and to deject that idea is just blatant ignorance.If people weren’t afraid of an almighty deity that could punish them then they’d be more inclined to act upon free will, actual free will.

      • chris m

        You cannot logically state that there is no God because you cannot know all things so as to determine that there is no God.

    • Velouria

      Also there’s no devil and no Hell, so you’ve got that going on too.

  • dan

    Not smart enough to change number one more time? Now what unemployment? He just does not want to work!!!!!!

  • Shirley

    God Bless you for sticking by your decision. If I make a purchase and
    that number comes up, I’ll by something else to make it different. When
    I was a cashier I always brought it to the attention of my customers
    just in case they missed it. It gave them the opportunity to decide what
    they chose to do and 8 out of 10 usually bought another item as well.

    • Taluscat

      So, you’re saying you’re a bit mental too?

    • Velouria

      Why? If you believe the Bible, the number means nothing until the AC comes back. So who cares if you run across it in daily life?

  • http://webpronews joanna

    i don’t think you can sell your soul that easily, unless yours is up for sale. is it? if not then the number is going to mean nothing. keep your faith strong and go back to work.

  • S

    It’s sad how quick people are to judge someone’s beliefs. Remember when you point at someone and judge, three of your fingers are pointing back at you. Father, Son and Holy Spirit. On the Day of Judgment will you pass?

      Please show me in the Bible where he is justified in his actions. If you rightly divide the word, you will know that 666 is not applied to today. This man is just wrong and uninformed. It’s not a popular number to a Christian, however, it becomes an idol if it is taken out of context and that is exactly what this man has done.

        “Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six.” (Revelation 13:16-18 RSV)

  • kitkat

    Hope his unemployment check doesnt have 666 on it would be hard to send that back

  • judy

    i don’t blame him, i would not want that number .

  • mike

    Good. I hope this ignorant piece of trash dies in poverty.

    • fruit salad

      glad to see not everyone has gone down into the single digit IQ

    • jojo

      @Mike, your nasty, hateful comment tells how cold and mean you must be. You must be a very unhappy person. This man who believes in Jesus, did the right thing. Something you would not understand. Instead of condemning him why don’t you do something intelligent and start reading the Bible. Only THEN can you give a fair comment.

  • fruit salad

    dumbest thing i ever heard and he should be taken out, slapped, and barred from ever working anywhere ever again or going near a church

    jesus christ i can’t believe this actually happen… it sounds like an onion article but it’s real life

  • Alex

    666? I like it. I think I’ll play it in the Cash 3 tonight.

  • bballbetty

    As a Bible-believing Christian, the prophetic number or mark in Revelation 13:17-18 is not applied to today. There is nothing supernatural about the number 666 until the time of the Great Tribulation. I’m sure this man had good intentions, but he is just uninformed.

    • S

      How do you know this does not apply to today. Do you know when the Great Tribulation is coming. If you do please tell me!

      • bballbetty

        No one knows. It hasn’t happened yet because the church has not been raptured.

      • S

        That is correct. So, how do you know that the book Revelation does not apply to today? Shouldn’t we be prepared? Don’t you think this man wants to be ready? 666 is not supernatural, it is a sign.

  • MaryBeth Denbrug

    I used to live right outside Perrysburg Ohio and I kid you not, the phone numbers there started with 666 lol. Area code was 419, but then the phone numbers would start with 666.

    I’m not a fan of the number, but it didn’t cause me to move or anything. If the man really thinks this was the devil’s way of getting at him did he not just let the devil win by quitting his job?

    Makes no sense to me.

  • The Judge

    LOL….why do folks continue to get his wrong – it is absolutely ok to judge – we make judgements every single day and every single hour. The only thing that is not ok to judge is what is in a persons soul….very simple concept. NOt sure why that is so hard to understand.

    • bballbetty

      THANK YOU! The term “judge” is taken out of context too much!

    The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 666

    The number six hundred sixty six is “the number of a name” (Revelation 13:17-18). When the name of Antichrist is known its Gematria (substituting numbers for letters) will doubtless be found to be 666. But this number has, we believe, a far deeper reference to and connection with the secret mysteries of the ancient religions, which will be again manifested in connection with the last great apostasy.

    Many names may be found, the numerical value of whose letters amounts to 666. We have a list of about forty such gematria. Most of them are ridiculous, inasmuch as instead of the gematria being confined to Hebrew and Greek (which have no Arabic or other special signs for figures), the principle is extended to names in English, French, and other modern languages, on the assumption that they would have been spelt in exactly the same way; whereas we know that names both of persons and places are not simply transliterated in various languages. It is absurd therefore to attempt to take words from the modern European languages which use Arabic figures.

    Gematria is not a means by which the name is to be discovered; but it will be a test and a proof by which the name may be identified after the person is revealed.

    If six is the number of secular or human perfection, then 66 is a more emphatic expression of the same fact, and 666 is the concentrated expression of it; six hundred sixty-six is therefore the triple of human perfection; the perfection of imperfection; the culmination of human pride in independence of God and opposition to His Christ.

    The number, however, has to be computed, to reckon, to calculate, not merely to count or enumerate). See Revelation 13:18. Therefore it is not to be known by gematria merely, though, as we have said, that will be one of the factors in the calculation, just as the letters in the word Jesus amount to 888.

    But 666 was the secret symbol of the ancient pagan mysteries connected with the worship of the Devil. It is to day the secret connecting link between those ancient mysteries and their modern revival in Spiritualism, Theosophy, etc. The efforts of the great enemy are now directed towards uniting all into one great whole. The newspapers, worldly and religious, are full of schemes as to such a union. “Reunion” is in the air. The societies for the re-union of Christendom, and the Conferences for the re-union of the Churches, are alike parts of the same great movement, and are all making for and are signs of the coming Apostasy. During this age, “Separation” is God’s word for His people, and is the mark of Christ; while “union” and “re-union” is the mark of Antichrist.

    How is the number 6 stamped on ancient mystery religions?

    The number 6 was stamped on the old mysteries. The great secret symbol consisted of the three letters SSS, because the letter S in the Greek alphabet was the symbol of the figure 6. a = 1, b = 2, g = 3, d = 4, e = 5, but when it came to 6, another letter was introduced! Not the next – the sixth letter (z, zeta) – but a different letter, a peculiar form of S, called “stigma” (V). Now the word stigma (stigma), means a mark, but especially a mark made by a brand as burnt upon slaves, cattle, or soldiers, by their owners or masters; or on devotees who thus branded themselves as belonging to their gods. It is from stizo, to prick, or brand with a hot iron. Hence it came to be used of scars or wound-prints, and it is thus used by Paul of his scars, which he regarded as the tokens of his sufferings, the marks which he bore on his body for the sake of his Lord and Master, and marking him as belonging to the one who had bought him (Galatians 6:17).

    This letter is becoming familiar to us now; and it is not pleasant when we see many thus marked (ignorantly, no doubt) with the symbolical “S,” “S,” especially when it is connected, not with “salvation,” but with judgment, and is associated with “blood and fire,” which, in Joel 2:30-31, is given as one of the awful signs “before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.”

    Apostasy is before us. The religion of Christ has, in the past, been opposed and corrupted, but when it once comes, as it has come in our day, to be burlesqued, there is nothing left but judgment. There is nothing more the enemy can do before he proceeds to build up the great apostasy on the ruins of true religion, and thus prepare the way for the coming of the Judge.

    It is remarkable that the Romans did not use all the letters of their alphabet, as did the Hebrews and Greeks. They used only SIX letters,* D, C, L, X, V, and I. And it is still more remarkable, and perhaps significant, that the sum of these amounts to 666:

    * The M appears to have been merely two D’s.

    D

    =

    500

    C

    =

    100

    L

    =

    50

    X

    =

    10

    V

    =

    5

    I

    =

    1

    TOTAL:

    666

    In each of the three pairs there is an addition of one, for 6 = 5 + 1. It is the grace of God superseded by the corruption of man.

    It will be seen from this that six-hundred and sixty-six is very far-reaching, and is filled with a meaning deeper, perhaps, than anything we have yet discovered. One thing, however, is certain, and that is, that the triple 6 marks the culmination of man’s opposition to God in the person of the coming Antichrist.

    Further illustration of the importance of this number is seen in the fact that the duration of the old Assyrian empire was 666 years before it was conquered by Babylon.

    Which three men stand out as ENEMIES of God?

    There are three men in the bible which stand out in Scripture as the avowed enemies of God and of His people. Each is branded with this number six that we may not miss their significance:
    1.
    GOLIATH, whose height was 6 cubits, and he had 6 pieces of armor;* his spear’s head weighed 600 shekels of iron (1Samuel 17:4-7).

    * In Ephesians 6:14-18, the Christian’s armor has a seventh piece – “Prayer.”

    2.
    NEBUCHADNEZZAR, whose “image” which he set up,** was 60 cubits high and 6 cubits broad (Daniel 3:1), and which was worshipped when the music was heard from 6 specified instruments.***

    ** We must distinguish the “image” which he set up, from the “man” of whom he afterwards dreamt. The proportions are not the same. The height of a man is to his breadth not as 10:1. Some have therefore thought that this “image” may have been an obelisk. But as the word for “image” denotes a form or likeness, it may have been like the form of a man standing on a pedestal of which the height was included. The pedestal being probably 24 (6×4) cubits, and the image 36 (6×6).

    *** The numerical value (by gematria) of the words in Daniel 3:1, which describe the setting up of this image is 4662. The very figures are significant, but still more so are the factors of this number. 4662 = 7 x 666.

    3. ANTICHRIST, whose number is 666.

    In the first we have one six connected with the pride of fleshly might.

    In the second we have two sixes connected with the pride of absolute dominion.

    In the third we have three sixes connected with the pride of Satanic guidance.

    How is the number 666 related to the wealth of Solomon?

    The number of talents of gold brought to Solomon each year was 666:

    “The weight of gold that came to Solomon YEARLY was six hundred and sixty-six talents of gold, BESIDES what the traveling merchants and traders brought. And all the kings of Arabia and governors of the country brought gold and silver to Solomon.” (1Kings 10:13-14)

    Solomon received six-hundred and sixty-six talents of gold EACH year, which in today’s world (assuming $1,500 per troy ounce) would be worth close to TWO BILLION dollars! But this perfection of money-power was only “vanity and vexation of spirit” (Ecclesiastes 2:8,11; compare 1Timothy 6:10).

    What is the meaning of 666?

    As to the triple 6’s, we have already seen that while one figure (6) is significant, two figures (66) are still more so; and three figures (666) seem to denote the concentration or essence of the particular number.

    We see further examples of this in:

    Jesus, 888, the dominical number.


    Sodom, 999, the number of judgment.


    Damascus, 444, the world number.


    The beast, 666, the number of man.


    “Verily, verily, I say unto you,” 888.


    The Lord God made, 888; etc., etc.

    “The children of Adonikam” who returned from the Captivity (Ezra 2:13) numbered 666. Adonikam means the lord of the enemy. This is suggestive, even though it may be vague.

    The number 666 has another remarkable property. It is further marked as the concentration and essence of 6 by being the sum of all the numbers which makes up the square of six! The square of six is 36 (6×6), and the sum of the numbers 1 to 36 = 666, i.e., 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20 + 21 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 26 + 27 + 28 + 29 + 30 + 31 + 32 + 33 + 34 + 35 + 36 = 666.

    They may be arranged in the form of a square with six figures each way, so that the sum of each six figures in any direction shall be another significant triplicate: the number 111.

    Additional commentary on the Biblical Meaning of 666 *

    “666” is the number and mark of the Beast of Revelation 13. It symbolizes the perfection of man’s system — separated from God and under Satan’s rule — in two ways:
    1.
    First, 6 divided by 2 equals 3. Man’s system is made up of 3 parts, with each represented by a 6: man’s governments under Satan, man’s religions worshiping Satan, and man’s economic systems under Satan.

    2.
    Second, when 666 is multiplied by 7 it equals 4662, which depicts man’s complete imperfection under Satan. When added across, 4 + 6 + 6 + 2 = 18; and 18 divided by 3 is 6.

    666 is to a Christian like Pork is to Muslim idiots ! Its not even about IF I want to deal with it , a devout Christian WONT deal with it ! It is a little early prophetically in the 666 AntiChrist game , but kudos to my brother for his diligence and fervor for Christ ! Oh and is Christ real for sure !? My family and I for years have posted on our bedroom walls things we pray for and as Christ does them we cross them off ! YEARS WE HAVE DONE THIS ! WHO is doing these things for us ????!!!!

  • The Truth

    Every item we purchase has a “666” in the bar code. The number 6 communicates with the computer telling it when the bar code scan begins, when to read the second set and when to stop reading the code for each particular item. If these people knew that they wouldn’t be buying ANY products because they ALL have the number 666 on them. The bible says not to take the mark into your hand or forehead. I am against the mark of the beast too. People need to just educate them selves better about it so they don’t have to quit their jobs. They have turned their Christian beliefs into superstition which is NOT Christianity. God says in the bible “My people perish for the lack of knowledge.” There are a lot of people out of work right now who would kill to have that job.

Quitting your job over a number on a form is about the lamest thing I’ve ever heard. The only number that matters is your salary. Would he have quit his job if he made $666,666.00 last year? I don’t think so. Craziness, laziness.

            What is making me remark about being an atheist? The 41 years I’ve been living in this world. That is why I am an atheist. That, and having actually read the bible. The bible is honestly the biggest reason I am an atheist.

    • Julia Murnyack

      At least he’ll be “moron” (forgive me Mr.Slonopas, only in reference to comment made)running on streets of gold when he dies because he fears the Lord, as I do myself, in a reverant kind of way. The bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. The devil nor you are more powerful. Nothing and no one is. Even if I was an unbeliever, I wouldn’t mock or make snyde remarks about his beliefs.I pray the The Holy Spirit would compel you to change your mind and way of thinking before you die, because if you think this place is hell, it isn’t, it’s only the appetizer, you don’t want the encore. And if you think when you get there that you and the devil are gonna be pals, again, you are sadly mistaken. The devil hates you, everything about you, and everything you stand for as a human being. You don’t get another chance. There is no purgatory either, no praying yourself anywhere after you die. This is the in between and this is the day that you decide your eternal destiny. Yes you, by the choices you make; to accept Christ’s death as atonement for your sins and your way to eternal life. God said no man shall enter the kingdom of heaven but by and through Jesus Christ; it is not His will that any should parish, but, that all would have eternal life; He also said my people parish for lack of knowledge. Don’t let it be you. Once it’s done it’s done. This is not my opinion, but His word. He said I am not a man that I should lie, my ways are higher than your ways, my thoughts are higher than your thoughts. I am The Great I Am who was and is and is to come. You don’t have to believe it, but if you don’t, it doesn’t mean it isn’t so. In reference to the numbers. I wouldn’t accept it either. My SS# has three sixes in it, but are divided by the hyphen; if it were not so, I would have done the same thing that man did on his job. Demanded it be changed. I’m pretty sure my parents would have saw to that first as I was a child when I first received it. In your reference to the only number that matters is your salary; money in itself is not evil; it’s the love of money that’s the root of all evil. God said it, so it is. He said you can’t serve two masters (money and Him), you’ll love one and hate the other. He’s a jealous God and a just God. He created us to be His companions and for His pleasure. If you have Him, you will know what true pleasure is. Without Him, you’re lost. I didn’t say it. He did. Read the bible. Ask Him to come into your life and you will experience peace and pleasure beyond measure. He said if I am for you who can be against you? No one!!! If you don’t understand it. The Holy Spirit will help you, be consistant, stay with it. You’ll get it and never regret it. I promise you that. I have been near death many times in my life. I know it’s real without a shadow of a doubt. All because of Him!!!

      • Beelzebub

        I love how you rationalize. My ss# has three sixes but divided by a hyphen. It seems like you have alot of common sense, divided by a boatload (arkload?) of delusion.

        My life is great as it is. My faith lies in myself. To thine own self be true.

        I believe in the Golden Rule, treat others as you wish wish those to treat you.
        I also belive that if you follow the ten commandments you will probably have a good life.

        But isn’t that just common sense? If you do crappy things, you will probably end up in jail. If you don’t, you won’t. If you treat people well, they will probably do the same to you. Common sense.

        You talk of love and pleasure……Chrisianity is based on fear. If you sin I will send you to fire and torment and condemnation for all eternity…..but I love you. What kind of crap is that?
        All this is, is a means to control people. Through fear. Not love. People are THREATENED to behave on earth with the thought of hell.
        I am more advanced than that way of thinking. I will not be held hostage.

        • Julia Murnyack

          Your life may “seem” great as it is now; but you are spiritually blind, by choice of your own doing; therefore, live your life by circumstances and what you can see (He said blessed are those that believe that have not seen),you live a very unstable life by living in the circumstances and things you see, because this world is very dangerous in that people “trusting in themselves as you say you do,” live a very willy nilly life, some thinking that there is no right or wrong, if it feels good do it, not caring about the consequences of the choices they’ve made at hand, parents are afraid to discipline their children for fear that some higher command will do something to them for doing so; or they are so into themselves and worried about their own needs, that they don’t pay any attention to what their kids are doing, in that case the kids are doing what they want (being true to themselves) not knowing the danger that lies ahead for them with no training or structure to build their lives on. That being said, brings my point full circle; a good scenario for you: people thinking they want to hurt or kill someone (relying on what THEY believe is their “true self”), this scenario being an example of my statement made about the world being a dangerous place.
          The “golden rule” that you refer to is based on what you so radically deny, is in fact in the bible Luke6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you and Matthew 7:12 So in everything do to others, what you would have them do to you… it existed in the bible long before what the world calls “The Golden Rule.” came into existence.
          In your reference to people doing crappy things so they will “PROBABLY end up in jail,” there are plenty of people that DO in fact do crappy things and don’t wind up in jail; and just the opposite, there are people that do nothing or do good things and end up in jail, for no reason at all.
          There are people that you can treat well, treat well, treat well, and they still act like an ungreatful spoiled rotten wretched brat, or like the devil himself. I don’t live my life based on what people will probably do or what they think about me. I put my faith in God, who never changes like the world does and loves me unconditionally unlike the world. What He says IS and He never changes it; therefore He is stable, never waivering what He says will happen if you do or don’t do certain things. That to me is not Him putting fear in you. He explains to you what will happen if YOU, not Him, make the choice to do what He told you not to. If someone explains on a hazard label of a bottle of poison what it will do to you if you ingest it into your body or absorb it through your skin, THEY didn’t put fear in you, you got afraid on your own and chose not to ingest it or get it on your skin, because of what the label said it will do if you ingest it or absorb it through your skin. The same way can be applied to God and saying HE puts the fear of Him in you, by saying what will happen to you if YOU, not Him, choose to disobey His teaching on the way you live your life.
          In reference to the christian life being based on fear, nothing could be further from the truth, a christian that comes to the Lord in repentance more often than not is broken and at the end of their witts, tired of making the same mistakes and ending up with the same results by being “true to themselves.” Their life is a mess, they’re in a world of trouble and sorrow for things they’ve done and said and the effects of that life; they’re truely humbled by their own doing, destruction they have caused themselves and possibly family and friends around them, they are broken. And in reference to you’re saying that HE’LL send you to hell is also not true; He told Adam and Eve in The Garden of Eden, if you eat of the tree he told them not to eat from; you will have the knowledge of good and evil and you shall surely die; “THEY chose” to eat of that tree themselves, He gave them the choice and they chose to disobey Him. He is not a man that He should lie, what He says doesn’t change, the world changes. Because THEY chose to eat from that tree, they chose to have the knowledge of good and evil and death as the consequences. He didn’t put fear in them and make them do it. Just like if you know that if you go too close to a fire, you’re going to get burnt, if you choose to go there knowing what it will do to you, you will reap the consequences of it. So, that being said, He does not send us to hell, we send ourselves, if we choose not to accept His offer of His Son Jesus’ death on the cross and His resurrection as payment for our sin. Because we using “common sense” and being “true to ourselves” can’t be good enough through our works to be worthy enough or ever pay Him back for what He did for us to make the way to heaven. For every good thing we do, we ruin it by doing something bad. So, in ourselves we are not perfect, we don’t deserve what He has offered to us. It can’t be earned or bought, it’s a gift. We either choose to take it, or we don’t.
          You are the only one holding yourself hostage; you’re your own enemy by what you choose. Not by some fear that is put in you. It is explained to you, just because you choose not to believe what He says, doesn’t mean it isn’t so.

  • Bruce

    Well hell, if he don’t need money then sign it over to me. if he didn’t know better, there are also angelic numerals with 666, it doesn’t necessarily have to be tied to satan, i mean c’mon…in my opinion, u can put lucifer on my check, all i know is that its getting cashed and put in my pocket

  • http://webpronews/life Herschel

    People who pay no attention to this number and think christians are doing wrong for rejecting this number, we just have to pray for them b/c they have no understanding about God…If you accept satans number you are one of his and none of GODS….if you are a non beliver then you will accept satans number, and satan laughs b/c he knows he has you in his grip….consider this, life is hard enough on this earth, but if you die appart from God, you will walk the corridors of a place JESUS calls hell forever, you will scream your guts out 24/7 and there will be no escape for you…Once you are sentenced to hell God leaves and he is never ever never comming back for you, you will be in hell for trillions of years and throughout ions of time. i can`t see electricity, but it`s real all the same, if i go to a power grid and grab 50 million volts i`m done, it killed me and i never saw the electricity. same with wind, it destroys entire towns, you never saw the wind but you saw the after effects…so why do people not believe in GOD just b/c they can`t see him….GOD bless all of my non believing Siters and Brothers and open there eyes while there is yet time..

    • bballbetty

      Where does the Bible teach that Christians should fear the number 666? Show me. The Bible does not teach this. I’m not looking for an opinion, I’m looking for righly dividing the Word. The Bible teaches that those who are left on earth during the Tribulation time (also known as Jacob’s Trouble) will have to take the mark of the beast or the numbers to buy and sell goods. It is not applied today!!! Christians will already be raptured up at this time, therefore, the numbers represent nothing.

      • Joseph

        Your not so bright eaither huh ?
        The numbers relate to satan and his army and followers…
        You have the NET LOOK IT UP then talk !!!!!

        • SHIRLEY

          Dear bballbetty, yes the number 666 does apply to people of today. yes the christian s will be gone, but there will be people left and they will still have a chance to receive The Lord Jesus as long as they do not take the mark at the time the antichrist try’s to make all take the mark, you will lose your life but whats life here if you are on your way to heaven. But with mark you are doomed to hell.

        • SHIRLEY

          Don’t need net i have my bible. yes and his followers which will be the people left behind that take the mark, sir. Don’t believe all you see on internet, get out your bible and read. if you don’t own one let me know and i will send you one.

      • Michael

        If you believe in a pretribulation rapture, I do not, Jesus warns for us to take heed, that even some of the ELECT will be fooled by the anti-Christ and if we are the ELECT that means we WILL be here for the Tribulation. Not to mention Jesus says When they come for you to run into the mountains and hide and also says I pray your flight is not in winter, so to believe we will not be here for the tribulation is a little arrogant. To think that God would allow His own Son to suffer and die on the cross, but not expect us to pay at all? Jesus the one who had no sin can suffer but the FILTHY EVIL creatures He died for can skip a little suffering in the Tribulation? Yeah…..Not gonna happen.

      • http://none Steven Pressley

        bballbetty I agree with you 100%.I can not find any where in the Bible where that number 666 has anything to do with anybody on this earth today. I’ve read what you have read, and get the same understanding.666 is a satan #,but has no meaning untill after the rapture. Few people read the Bible, most never study for understanding.They get their truth from a neighbor, they honestly believe what they say is true or from a paster (preacher) that preaches as much about santa claus & flying deer at his birth , And bunny rabbits, baby chicks and eggs at his risarection,as he does about any thing.No body can show me any of this stuff in the Bible.Heres one for you.Itis preached, teached and very well under stood that 3 wise men or kings came to visit the new born king,and brought gilfs, 3 are mentioned.No where in all the gospels can you find ( 3 WISE MEN )but you can find 3 gifts.Some people does read their Bibles,but only tell you what they want you to hear. Adding and taking away from Gods word daily.Look what they’ve done to GODS commandments. Thank you letting me share this much.

    • heather

      if god created earth than how were dinosaurs here before man was created? God is not real. if he was as great as you claim why should we praise him? sounds like another man on a power trip if you ask me. all religious people are like annoying telephone marketers. they think we have time in our lives to listen to the bs that is god. if the devil is alive i hope he takes all of you to hell and hope i go there to. At least i wont have to worship the devil like the bible has you guys worshiping god. when anything good happens in your life you thank god. are you that insecure to realize you accomplished your goals without your imaginary friend sitting on your shoulder. god and heaven is a lie people tell because their affraid of death.i know all my religious people are going to have something to say so feel free to preach. thats all you do anyway.

      • Michael

        You are an idiot. Stephenville TX, poluxy river, Dino tracks along side human tracks, one dino track on top of a human track. So I guess you think that we are all evolving? Why hasn’t the ceolacanth evolved? Or the Platypus? So you think two amino acids got bored and decided to join and become a protein, then got bored and decided to become a worm, then a fish that crawled on land layed two eggs one hatched as a bird one a reptile. HMMMM I live in the south, I fish a lot, when a fish gets on land, HE DIES! Have you ever seen a pregnant cat or other pet? When they gave birth, what came out? Did the cat have lizards? Oh I know it had Orcas. They give birth each after their own kind. Did your mother have other children? Or maybe she gave birth to a mule. If evolution were true, and it is still a theory not a fact, many of the so called evolving man bones that have been found were either PROVED or ADMITTED to be fraudulant evan though schools still teach it, but if evolution were real and we could change what we are like the amino acids in the story, then men would all have large male members and a vagina on their right (or left) hand, and woman would have a pouch like a marsupial, they way they gripe about child birth. Read some real science, it proves every day that the Universe was created, not developed by chance. Check out Dr John Pendleton, he can help you.

  • James Mark Plantagenet

    Why do all you idiots believe that 666 has anything to do with America anyway. It’s better to keep your pie hole shut and be thought an idiot than to open your mouth and prove it. Look at you all lining up to cast quantifiable inconclusive opinions at someone who is misinformed. This has created a chain reaction of absolute stupidity. First and foremost, when revelations was written,the world as they knew it didn’t include America or W-2 forms. Think about it! Revelations was NOT written expressly about American government or any part of it. FURTHERMORE, there are many, many things that the public does not know regarding the number 666, the number 137, and the numbers 3,6,&9. So if you compare the amount of “time” in a solar year to the amount of “time” in a year of the Gregorian calendar, there is a difference of .666 second per day. HMMMM? Furthermore, the biohazard symbol is a geometrically reversible, triple tessilated image that depicts three sixes,(I wonder how that could have happened)? Oh yeah, and by the way… How many of you morons know anything about carbon7… lets see, as I recall carbon 12 has 6 protons, 6 neutrons, and 6 electrons. And what is carbon 12? Well, if you are reading this, your A** is composed of carbon 12, so does that make each and every one of us Satan? O.K., so here is a little quiz for you… if you think you know more than the poor guy that quit his job because of abject stupidity, Who is Satan, who is Lucifer, and who is Calagastia? Have a blessed day you bunch of idiots, and while you are at it, make the world a better place by talking trash about your fellow man.

    • Donna

      Not sure how much of a moron I am, but I do know the book from the Bible is Revelation not revelations.

    • Tammy

      Are you seriously calling everyone idiots, Do you not think when revelations was written that God did not know what He was creating, and that He did not know America would be in existence??? God knew the beginning from the end!!! Stupidity comes in all forms, so I would be careful who I called Stupid, so it don’t come right back on you. The mark of the beast is 666, and it has to do with America, and every other place on this earth, because it belongs to satan, so if you live in America, or anywhere else it means the same thing! Stupidity is when we boast of our self knowledge instead of God’s knowledge, so if you really want to be wise, ask God and read His Word, instead of spatting off nonsense!

      • L Hasty

        God did not write the bible, man did. In fact, it was written nearly 2000 years after christ died. If any christians ever tried to educate themselves on the origin of the faith, you would know there was good reason the apocrypha books were left out; so ignorant, fearful people such as yourselves could be easily led by the nose. Why do you all insist your “faith” is true, and then you think you have full heavenly rights to judge and dictate the lives of others? Wake up.

    • Joseph

      Your pretty good at giving your mentally incompetant trash talk and retarded advise so next time U SATANIST look in the mirror and give it !!!!!!!

    • Michael

      While I agree with much of what you say, since the Bible says that man is inherently evil, maybe the carbon 12 666 is that evil that is born into all of us. And it helps when quoting the Bible to get it right.It isn’t RevelationS it is Revelation, shortened from The Revelation of Jesus Christ. It was only one Revelation not many. No offense, it’s just that your statement loses it’s impact when the Bible you wuote is apparently unread. And although there was no America, and I do NOT believe the anti-Christ will come from America, there are many passages that lead to people believing that America is some of the subject which it could be in The Revelation since it is a prophecy and though there was no America at the time, the author, St John the Divine, not to be confused with John the Apostle, could have been shown America and so much more. Like I say not trying to be mean, just helpful.

    • Ken

      James,

      As an aethist, I would have to say that I agree with you, in principal, but not in fact.

      I agree, the “666” thing is just plain silly. I don’t believe in it, and I think the whole thing is dismssable. But, I don’t feel the need to ram my opinion down their throats. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs, and I applaud those that stay to true to theirs.

      When a Christian tries to force-feed me their belief’s, I push back, rather hard. But, I have no issues with them otherwise. If they believe different, I am okay with that!

    I think he needs therapy. As bad as this economy is and everybody and their mama is looking for work and he’s so into worrying about these numbers then he obviously don’t need the paycheck. I’m sure there is someone out there who doesn’t believe in such a thing and they have been out of work for months if not years. So someone had better grab this job and good luck to him in the future!

  • kameelah rahim

    i would never except anything with those numbers on there. that is definatley the mark of the beast and American is trying anyway that it can to get you to accept that mark. Im not christian i am a Muslim american and i even know better. Except the numbers in your life if you want. You will see the outcome

  • Joey K.

    I used to work at a place where to sign in we had to punch in the first letter of our last name, our first name, and then our 3 digit employee number. So at least fifty times a day I typed in “KJOEY866” If I could have, I would have gladly changed it to 666…or 111, 222, 333,…,999. Anything to make life easier.

  • Another Christian

    I believe he is standing up for what he believes in. I applaud him for his stand. Even if a person is standing alone in what they believe, they must stand for it, or they will fall for anything. And of course, the Bible even says we will be persecuted by those nonbelievers. I, too, do not like that number and probably would have done the same thing as Mr. Slonopas. Again, this is my opinion. You do not have to agree with it.

    I am an Aetheist, and to me, his feelings on the subject are…well…comical. But, that is my opinion.

    I do respect his feelings on the matter. Were he working for me, I’d just change his number to 789, to avoid any way of offending him. It is a shame the company didn’t take extra efforts to keep him. He sounds like a standup guy…and he is being true to his beliefs. Whether or not I agree with them them, I respect them…and him!

    • L Hasty

      You sir, are pretty awesome. I am agnostic, and I have trouble holding myself back from being utterly sarcastic and rude. I only wish the religious “faithful” weren’t so quick to judge.

    • Michael

      I think the W-2 incident sounds lie some jerk in their office wither some 40 year old gamer still living in his mommies basement or some other goober that though the complaint was also comical and did it out of spite. I am a Christian and not all of the Christian faiths believe this is the mark because you have to understand what the scripture REALLY says about the mark, so although I don’t necessarily believe that it is the mark, anything that has to do with the government or banks or things of that nature, I won’t accept anything that is a number for identity to contain that number. I may not think it’s the mark, but I ain’t gonna take no chances.

      Dear Axl Rose, the man is right to do what he thinks is right. Yes there is a 666 that will be at the end of time and it is Satan’s number. If you don’t believe hell will be waiting on you one day. I pray you will give your heart to the Lord Jesus before its too late. God Bless

  • Patrick Beishir

    666 is not the number of the beast.In the times of Roman domination the alphabet doubled as their system of counting.The numbers 666 when spelled out in text translates to Nero who was the Roman leader at said time.It is also the last 3 digits of my birthdate so if this clown wants to quit his job over such foolishness I say let him.Good luck drawing your unemployment Dumbass!!!

Ezra and Nehamia had a record that was changed and a hidden judgement in the old testament that probably is the most accurate resource for 666- oh yeah,”6 days on the road and im agonna make it home tonite ” is a song that repeats 6 three times in a row. in short,dont worry bout’ small potatoes,its what you dont prepare for that kills ya.

  • bill Volusia

    What an idiot, a number is just number nothing more nothing less. Get a grip.

  • The Truth

    Every item we purchase has a “666″ in the bar code. The number 6 communicates with the computer telling it when the bar code scan begins, when to read the second set and when to stop reading the code for each particular item. If these people knew that they wouldn’t be buying ANY products because they ALL have the number 666 on them. The bible says not to take the mark into your hand or forehead. I am against the mark of the beast too. People need to just educate them selves better about it so they don’t have to quit their jobs. They have turned their Christian beliefs into superstition which is NOT Christianity. God says in the bible “My people perish for the lack of knowledge.” There are a lot of people out of work right now who would kill to have that job.

    I’m sure there are a 1000 other people out there that would take Walter’s spot and gladly except 666 as their clock number just to have a job.

  • Karen

    Yay, now there is a job opening for someone who isn’t a superstitious freak.

  • Sean

    get a life…ooooo..devil gonna get ya..

    This is exactly what Satan wanted him to do, get all superstitious about some numbers and quit his job so he can live off of the government, so I can pay for him to sit around and do nothing all day. Then, I will have less money to pay for international and home missions, less money to tithe to the church, less time to spend in ministry since I will be working so much to pay for his unemployment. While he sits back and thinks that this was a sign from God. Rightly divide the Word, Christian! This is exactly what makes unbelievers question Christianity. Study your Bible if you want to know the Truth about the numbers. Rev 13

      Wow! Something good came out of this! If you have less money to travel and spend your time prosthelytizing ( I know that is too big a word for you -it means ridiculing away another cultures’ beliefs on mission trips until they accept God) is so wrong on so many levels

  • Randy

    Walter just finished listening to Iron Maiden Number Of The Beast one bad@$$ song

  • JamesW

    What an idiot, at least I wont have to pay his unemployment. I hope he wasn’t making airplane parts or fire extinguishers.

  • Jessica Williams

    Dude, 666 is just another number in most cases. It’s not about you accepting that number on a time card, the bible says that you have to accept that number stamped on your forehead or your hand as loyalty to the beast (conditional and without misunderstanding)in order to buy and sell. I guess if you were in line to receive your paycheck and you just happened to be the 666th person, you’d tear up the check? Use some wisdom here.

    That has got to be his employee number and they just aren’t telling him.

  • JS

    People who quit don’t get unemployment.

  • http://newbizshop.com Derek

    This guy is an idiot and I hope he don’t get unemployment. If new job ask why did you leave your last job and you say this 666 thing, they will think he is crazy and not hire him. Good job.

  • Anon

    Someone really needs to get this guys address and start trolling him with stuff like “Well done, through a random selection you are the 666th person to be selected and have won a $666 shopping spree voucher”

    truth be told
    666 is transliterated from ancient greek into modern english as such:
    6 numeral ancient greek =
    F digamma character phonetic =
    w letter modern english =
    figure it out… this guy, like so many, so many others
    got it twisted. but now is the time to
    get it right. No fear just facts.
    enjoy the rest of your life.

    @Anon – Funny

    @Derek
    ‘We’ end up paying for unemployment ONLY if a person is fired, not for one who voluntarily quits the job, 666 or otherwise, so we don’t have to worry about this guy. Anyway, the company rehired him.

    @Steve
    Agree, looks like its his employee number and unless they terminate the current profile and rehire as a new one, the company is just masking the issue, from him :)

    He can’t have that number. It’s Mine!!!!!

    In this regard he is turning religion into superstition!

  • Jacob Michaelson

    Oh yes intelligence at its best! Bless your heart sir and I hope you realize that 666 could be representative of the number of man (symbology) according to the Bible yet the number of man still could be any number or sequence representing man. What do you think a Social Security Number is? Thank you for quitting your job so the company can now hire someone of higher intelligence. LOL
