At the turn of the century, Pastor William Hendrickson wrote that the mark of the beast is "the God-opposing, Christ-rejecting, church-persecuting spirit of the antichrist, wherever and whenever it shows itself. This mark is impressed on the forehead or right hand in Rev. 13. The forehead symbolizes the mind, the thought life and philosophy of a person. The right hand indicates his deeds, actions, trade, and industry. Therefore, the person receiving 'the mark of the beast' indicates the person who belongs to the company of those who persecute the church."
