To Train Up a Child: "666" Marking in Chapter 1

A reader notified me of a statement in chapter one of Michael and Debi Pearl's book, To Train Up a Child, that struck him and his wife as odd:

While we tried to sit and talk, the children were constantly running in and out of doors, complaining of ill treatment from the others, begging to go or stay or eat, or demanding a toy that another child would not relinquish. The mother had to continually jump up and rescue some breakable object. She said, “No,” six hundred sixty-six times in the space of two hours. She spanked each child two or three times—usually with her hand on top of a diaper. Other than misaligning the child’s spine, it seemed to have had no effect. (1)  [bold emphasis added]

Michael and Debi Pearl placed the number of the name of the beast on the first page of the first chapter of their first book on child training. (2) This number, six hundred sixty-six, was not mentioned in a doctrinal context or in a way suited to the seriousness of the number of the name of the beast of Revelation. (3) Rather, the number six hundred sixty-six was, to all outward appearances, cited to show the number of times "in the space of two hours" a mother said "No" to her unmanageable children.

Perhaps Michael and Debi Pearl might try to dismiss this occult marking by saying the "six hundred sixty-six times" statement is placed in their first child training book to serve as 'tongue-in-cheek humor' and nothing more.
Followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, in heeding the grave meaning of this number in scripture, do not cite the number of the name of the beast—which is directly related to the worship of Antichrist—flippantly. It is a fact the New World Order/New Age/satanist/occultist insiders anticipate with glee the rising of the beast and everything that it entails (they love to mark their corporations, books, films, websites, etc. with 666) but Christians must refrain from unscriptural levity in regard to the number that identifies Antichrist.


In Conclusion
The insertion of the number "six hundred sixty-six" in Michael and Debi Pearl's book, To Train Up a Child, marks it for the occult just as the upside-down cross font (and more) marks their book, Good and Evil; and the Celtic point-within-the-circle font marks Eight Kingdoms. Michael Pearl's teaching that Sex is Worship and placing RUNES on the Ten Commandments is the same thing as advertising for witchcraft.

The Holy Bible commands God's people to abstain from the appearance of evil, not mark themselves with it. (See 1 Thessalonians 5:22)
