I always had a suspicion...


So, this past Sunday in our Young Pros Bible Class, we were closing out a study on Jesus refilling our lives, with the particular focus that week being on eschatology, which is the study of the end times. And in the course of class prep, I felt compelled to share this via Mark Atteberry, who's a superb Christian author/leader. (hey, if Donald Miller is a fan of this guy, so am I)


Some people have actually spent time identifying Barney, the purple dinosaur, as the Antichrist. What? You didn't know Barney is the Antichrist? Then you need to read Revelation 13:18, which clearly says that the beast's number is 666, and also happens to be Barney's number. If you have any doubts of this, just work your way through the following steps and be enlightened:


Given: Barney is a cute purple dinosaur

Prove: Barney is really the Antichrist in disguise


1. Start with the given: CUTE PURPLE DINOSAUR


2. Change all the U's to V's (which is proper Latin anyway): CVTE PVRPLE DINOSAVR


3. Extract all Roman numerals in the phrase: CVVLDIV


4. Convert these into Arabic values: 100 5 5 50 500 1 5


5. Add all the numbers: 666




So now let your greatest fears be realized.
