That’s not the point of this stupid article and you know that. This article is warning people not to “accidentally” take the mark of beast.
The fact that we can imbed a chip into the right hand of a human being that can control whether we can buy or sell should be used as evidence that the prophecies in Revelations are correct and accurate.
But instead we get this paranoid screed about how this technology “is” the mark of the beast.
The truth is this is likely the technology that will be used by the prophet of the antichrist to provide the mark of the beast, but the technology in and of itself is not the mark of the beast.
We should be proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ rather than freaking out and acting like paranoid louts simply because prophecy is being fulfilled... like we claimed we believed anyway.
In Brussells, Belgium is the center of the biggest computer database in the world. It has been a work in progress since mid-70’s, it can hold all of the world’s data for each human being. My mother had a real estate business for twenty years in WV...she sold a piece of real estate to a man who worked there for years...he told her the nickname of that huge (many city blocks) monstracity was “THE BEAST”..it gave real pause regarding scripture. ...it may not be The Beast of the Bible, but who knows for sure, if it controls all of our data.
I agree with you. In and of itself, the microchip is neutral; it depends how it is used. But I believe the form of the “mark of the beast” will end up being the microchip.
In the article “The Microchip is the Sign of the Beast of the Book of Revelation” (http://markbeast.blogspot.com) one finds these paragraphs:
Dr. Sanders then, in designing with the team the bio-chip, or micro-chip, was opposed to the use of a lithium battery, as it is known that if one might break the lithium, which is radioactive, it would cause a grave blister or ulcer, and would verify, in addition to pain, many complications for those who might accept it.
Indeed, says the Book of Revelation (Rev 16:2): So the first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and foul and evil sores come upon the men who bore the mark (micro-chip) of the beast and worshiped its image.
