No Protestant here(me). Never is the Mark cf Satan (BEAST) that I have heard except here, as the Mark of God been even suggested.
WHo here has claimed this to be so? Any that reiceve this Mark are doomed. As in NO Repentence.
One World Order People in the end will claim it to be, as they will Claim the Ant-Christ to be GOd..... Power and all that.
They will say he is the peace maker, 7 years of no war. But he will be the incarnate Devil with his right hand man (bishop, etc.)..this is my understanding. SOme one will attempt to assasinate this false one, and he will be given power to return to physical life, fooling many. Many will be (and are) decieved.
Where you come up with Paul is the main branch of Catholicism is the mind boggle as well as another issue.
You are not very UNDERSTANDING of the Scripture, YOU do not UNDERSTAND what this or that means in the Scripture.

You are better served by Living a GOOD LIFE, and raising Children that will live a GOOD life.

That is ALL YOU NEED, Live a GOOD Life, and raise Children that live a Good life, That is the GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT YOU CAN ACHIEVE YOUR CHILDREN were GOOD.

That is the GREATEST Achievement of Mankind, YOUR CHILDREN were GOOD.

Back to ME, Protestants are a branch of the Catholic Religion.

OH, the Catholic Church CLAIMS Sunday Worship as the MARK of their Authority upon the Earth.
The Catholic Church SAYS Friday Sunset to Saturday Sunset is the Sabbath but that they (the Catholic Church) changed what GOD said at the Creation and that this is Proof that they (the Catholic Church) is GOD upon the Earth.

They (the Catholic Church) call it the Mark of their Authority upon the Earth, for no being could CHANGE what GOD created at the Creation (the Sabbath) unless that being the POPE was GOD upon the Earth.

Seriously they call it the MARK of their authority. It goes WAY BACK.

The Sabbath, Easter, Christmas, the latter 2 are Catholic.
It seems such a Little thing, GOD give even SLAVES a day off, and oh Saturday Sunday What is the difference?

Pretty much everything you think is Christian can be traced in this GREAT TREE of the Religions of the Earth into the Catholic branch.

The religions of the Earth are a Great TREE,
Everything you call Christian are limbs of the Catholic branch.

But the TRUNK is JESUS, and the ROOTS GOD.

But all you call Christian are limbs far out upon the branch of the Catholics.

THE TREE GROWS FROM THE EARTH WITH 12 MAIN BRANCHES.

All you can see are the Lemons and Grapefruit upon two limbs upon on Branch, upon on Branch.

THE TREE, THAT IS GOD,
Has 12 MAIN BRANCHES.

You fight among yourselves, at the end of the branches, saying my fruit is better, never seeing the TREE to which you are connected.

Protestants are on the Branch of Catholics, a Limb that came out from the Catholics.

And the Catholics have a Whole bunch of other Limbs that have come out from them.

Every single one of them connected to the Trunk by the limb of Catholicism and Paul.

The TRUTH OF GOD is as a TREE, with many Branches.

You guys are like Lemons at the END of these Branches.
There is a lot of tree between when it breaks off from the trunk to form this branch and when we get to you and your sour lemon.

GOD is the ROOTS of the Tree.

I don't agree with your interpretations. I could say as well that you don't understand what you read. As far as your advice, don't think that is Scriptural either.
I am not contesting your statements about the Sabbath. Again, me thinks you need help deciphering.
Not all come from Catholic roots. The CHurch was here long before Catholicism picked up and twisted the Word.
WWhere do you put yourself in this maze? The only cult with the truth?

You have a history of bad behavior when you are challenged all the time! Does your democratic process and your constitutional republic process offend your millionaire sense of entitlement?! Or you are just another angry person?! Born Again Christian Fanatic, the wrong temperament for the job!

You are challenged alright. Bad behavior is more than likely what makes you unemployable.
Yeah, lots of millionaires here. Every bend in the road or clump of sagebrush has one. I was working and in school at 16. On my own. Not sitting around the parents whining and avoiding the anger management classes. You are so weak you have to put your actions onto me?

You are young, lazy and ignorant. Besides being uneducated and basically a spolied brat.
You can't care for yourself in your twenties and want to roar on the web when not playing your X-box games. You are NO man and it does not look well for that happening.
You can't stand on your own and your own beliefs don't hold water. You did not even know your candidate Ron Paul. One trembles to think your generation is old enough to be taking over, but still under the wings of mommy and daddy providing for you and making your choices. A little male toad waiting for his fairy princess' kiss.

You add nothing here, no matter how many times you post the same squat. You don't even make sense. Pathetic waste of education dollars.

You can see thru the web now? Too many Spider man movies and games on your menu. Catholics win what? The Mark of their Beast?

CATHOLIC TRADITION - Purgatory, nuns, popes.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS - None of these is mentioned in the Bible. It is a sin to add to the Bible.

Proverbs
30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

The pope is a man who takes upon himself honor which belongs to no human being. Even the very name by which he allows himself to be called (Holy Father) is highly presumptuous and blasphemous (see above).

One does not need the pope to determine what God's will is. The Bible says that God has given the Holy Ghost to each believer and that he (the Holy Ghost) guides and leads us into all truth. All a believer needs is the Bible and the Holy Ghost to know the will of the Lord. Popery has been treacherous, but worse, each pope has been the blind leading the blind. Jesus said that both will fall into the ditch. Catholics, come out of this system that cannot save and know Jesus for yourself, intimate and up-close according the truth which is his word.

NOTE: Purgatory is supposedly a place where a person is purified of sins--even popes supposedly go there. The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the one that purifies us of our sins. Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.... When a person dies their eternal home is sealed--heaven or hell--no in between. Hebrews 9:27 ...it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

I quoted Scripture....it has nothing to do with: A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
