    There have been a few interesting thoughts being passed around regarding the final number of votes Cruz ended up with in the Iowa Caucus. The last three digits of the final tally were "666," and I have known a lot of believers that have returned a license plate or a driver's license, credit cards, etc., that had the 666 digits within the numbers of the card or document in question.

    So, is the thought that the "666" in his final number of votes just a number, or is it something more?

    That's silly.

    It's just a number.

    It frightens me that some Christians might make important decisions based on what is essentially a roll of the dice.

    In case anyone thinks I am trying to round up votes for Cruz, I will NOT be voting for Cruz in the election of 2016. Period. I took great pains to vote against him throughout his senate campaign in Texas and was extremely disappointed that he won.

    But if you are not going to vote for Cruz, I would prefer that it be because of sane reasons.

    Yes and we are cautioned to avoid such superstitious thinking.

    It must mean that when he turns 51, he will then be the anti-christ! :p

    That date will fall on 12-22-2021. If you add up all those numbers it adds to 12 which is two 6's. He will also be 51 of course. Add that together and it is one 6, so then we have '666'. :p :D Eek o_ORoflmao

    This is kinda weird...

    John 6:66
    From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.

    Ted Cruz can't be the AntiChrist if Obama is. Obama can't be the AntiChrist because Reagan was.

    Ronald Wilson Reagan =666

    Hey..., RD2..., I offered up a postulated sequence on here recently about the snow storm that hit the District of Criminals (a few weeks ago) as perhaps being part and parcel of God's displeasure over Obama's position regarding Israel.

    Bro..., folks done come out of da' woodwork body slamming me right to the mat for a full count. To me it was just a comment/suggestion for discussion. Some must have thought me serious.

    ...some of the older hotel's skip over the number numbered 666 when numbering their rooms.
