                           THE "MARK OF THE BEA$T"

               ALL Christians are PROHIBITED by Revelation 14:9-11 from
          cooperating with the "MARK-OF-THE-BEA$T" bar-code, OCR-
          number, and magnetic-strip scanning systems, (as found in
          local libraries, supermarkets, retail establishments, etc.),
          which also THREATEN to SUBVERT Individual Privacy and

               The scanners can serve THE SAME CRIMINAL PURPOSE as the
          TV cameras in the book "1984"!

               The UPC bar-codes are probably the most blatant form of
          the "MARK OF THE BEA$T" so far, with the "NUMBER OF THE
          BEA$T", 666, ALREADY CODED INTO THEM.  Each of the so-called
          "guard patterns", pairs of thin lines spaced close together
          at the beginning, middle, and end of each full-length UPC
          bar-code, is IDENTICAL to one of the two codes for a 6.

               WARN YOUR FRIENDS!

               UN-altered REPRODUCTION and DISSEMINATION of this
          IMPORTANT Information is ENCOURAGED.
