Strange Cult in Florida

This is the first time I've heard of this particular group, a cult calling themselves Growing in Grace. The leader has called himself everything from the reincarnation of St. Paul, to the antichrist to Jesus Himself. Many of his church members are so dedicated that give up to 40-50% of their incomes to him. And now, as the latest trend and to show their devotion to their leader, many members are getting the numbers 666 tattooed on their arms, legs or necks. Go here.

"Church members say the symbol [666] doesn't connect them to Satan but rather to De Jesus' claim that he has replaced Christ's teachings with a new gospel." Oh, is *that* all it is!

Funnily enough, God's Word does connect "replacing Christ's teachings with a new gospel" to the work of Satan. 2 Cor. 11:3-4, Gal. 1:6-9.

“He deceived them that had received the mark of the beast” (Revelation 19:20)

“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, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”
