My Brother an Father watch this show (Shepard Chapel) an they tell me that the mark of the beast will be a thought in the mind, which puzzle me cause I dont see it that way but they think this due to Mr Murray teachings. Also brother told me the serpent had sex with Eve like physical contact, again this coming from the show. An again I dont belive this either my view is Satan was able to pregnant Eve just like God did Mary. I could go on an on, but to me this guy is miss leading people. My brother an father says he goes through the bible verse by verse an it easy to understand. Anyways I was just wanting to drop a line to you.

Hi, I'm sorry I did not get back to you right away, especially since your message does not require a lengthy reply.  Their ideas seem to be an accurate reflection of Shepherd's Chapel teachings.  The idea that the mark of the beast might be through the mind is not so far out, I keep an open mind on that subject, I'm cautious about anyone who tells me they know for sure exactly how the Mark of the beast is going to work.  The serpent seed doctrine is one of the most damaging teachings of Arnold Murray. I have recorded and extensive study on that subject The Seed of the Serpent.  The teaching draws support from several places in scripture, in all cases the interpretation rests on distortions of the biblical text, abuse of study tools (such as strong's concordance), contextual errors,  and other unsound practices of interpretation.  Nevertheless it can be very convincing to some based on a craving to discover "secrets in the bible"  They neglect the true treasures of the scripture, whereby a man may be made partaker of the divine nature, escape the corruption of the world, and shine as a light in the midst of darkness.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions,
