Bible college gets rid of 666 prefix

A small Bible college is fighting to change its telephone number because the 666 prefix is disturbing to Christians who recognise it as the biblical mark of Satan.

“People say, ‘You’re a Bible college and you have 666 in your phone number?’” said Carlene Light, an office worker at Kentucky Mountain Bible College.

“It’s the connotation. No one wants to be part of the mark of the beast.”

The conservative, non-denominational Christian college on a hillside in eastern Kentucky has been trying for months to persuade a telephone company to change the number.

Rob Roy MacGregor, the college’s vice president for business affairs, said staff and students want the number changed to a second prefix, 693, that recently was added after all the 666 numbers were taken.
