Six is an easy number to write when kids are learning. Don't worry.

It was my little brother (who is seven) and his writing. There were four 6's on the paper in no order. They were randomly put together but not far off from each other. And they were in red. And no other drawing or writing was on it. I freaked out. I crumpled it and threw it away and prayed there were no demonic forces trying to influence my brother's mind. Even though it was not 3 6's on the sheet of paper, it was colored in red and enough to freak me out and think about the time when I caught a glimpse of my brother watching a cartoon with this huge devil creature. My brother watches ALOT of cartoons for the record. I told him no and to turn the web channel to something else. I read a vision about this man who said Jesus took him to Heaven and Hell and in the outer darkness of the Earth or whatever it was, God allowed him to see the demons and principalities in 'high places' as it says in the Bible and he saw many cartoon characters we watched as children alive as demons. As crazy as it sounds, Power Rangers were one of them and my brother loves power rangers. And they were saying to this man that they were coming to get children through the tv screens. He said that Jesus explained to him these cartoons were able to come alive and manifest themselves into demons because the creators sold their soul to the devil. Ever since I read that and saw that demon character my brother watched from his cartoon, I forbid him to watch that show and other things. I'm keeping a watch on him now that I found the red 6's on the sheet of paper. I asked him why he drew them and what they were. He said they were just numbers. I told him why are they red and if he drew anything else with red. He said no. That's a cause for concern to me. Do you think I am overreacting? Do you think there is any significance to this? I don't want to take away his fun or anything but I mean, randomly drawing 6's on a sheet of paper in red? And then watching tv shows with demon characters? I don't trust this.
1x6=6
2x6=12
3x6=18
4x6=demonic possession? or perhaps.....it's just 24.

You really have to be careful about this sort of thing. It's too easy for religious belief to become superstition. Specific little things like number sequences and colors can't carry a moral quality by themselves.

Did you know there are at least 12 different numbers cited as the mark or the Beast by biblical scholars? Even if it were the correct number, those symbols, the 6s, only carry the meaning six because people decided they do. We could have easily decided that any other symbol meant six. That's a human creation, nothing divine or diabolic.

Similarly, why should red matter? The association between the devil and the color red is also a human creation.

If you are concerned for your brother's well-being, look to his actions and attitudes, not omens and portents.
