Dispel your Mark of the Beast phobia, citizen!

A company named Indivos is trying to take biometrics to a new level, by replacing 100 million credit cards with fingerprint scanners.

The juicy comments are in a PDF file, which are also printed in the article above. The home page for the Biometric Consortium Conference is here.

And, as Invi Indivos' website makes clear:

[this] voluntary service authenticates consumer identity at the point of purchase... After voluntarily enrolling in the free service...

It's voluntary, so, what's the problem then?

In a trial run, there was only one unenrollment: "Lady's husband was convinced this was the "Mark of the Beast", and made her un-enroll." Their solution is simple: "Must continue to educate the public on how biometric technology works to dispel the "Mark of the Beast" phobia."

I think it might be a wise idea for concerned citizens - regardless of what they think of Jack van Imp - to protest any businesses that use this. But, hey, if you want to give up your fingerprint in exchange for the proferred sign-up bonus of a free hamburger, go ahead. Just make sure that you get a super-sized meal in exchange for the tattoo.

I guess Invidious Corporation isn't as strong a "mark" as Indivos.



What is taken out of context in Bible teaching today? Body: How do so many ChristianÂ’s fall for this rapture and mark of the beast theory? We have learned that several million Christians failed to vote in this last election. I have also learned that the end times doomsday theology has a great influence into the mindset of many Christians today. A christian church having nearly a million members is claiming that December 14th will be the beginning of the tribulation period, and the trump will sound. I tried hard to influence a such people to vote this year! Why would they not want to vote? It was a contradiction to their religious convictions when according to them, America has already been judged by God. Why not vote? What was their hang up? Why vote if ChristianÂ’s are caught up in a rapture to heaven, and when the anti Christ will dominate the world anyway according to prophecy? The most frightening thing coming is the popular 2012 date set for the rapture spreading anticipation like wild fire! It may draw many more Christians into a doomsday mentality, potentially hurting the next election much more so. The conservative balance of power may be determined by such critical voters who may yet determine America's future. We need all christians to stay loyal to America, not the Rapture! What is wrong with this anti-christ beast theory? Look at Waco Texas, and David Koresh, and Jim Jones, and others. What happens when normal human beings are drawn into abnormal behavior by strong religious convictions coming from a doomsday theology! This hidden enemy exists within our conservative center, and it may already be doing far more harm than the liberal media has done to conservative causes. Revelation 15:2 clearly states that the mark of the beast is something Christians must personally overcome to gain the victory through the blood of the lamb? This description and obvious wording in the Bible seem to identify mans fallen nature, not some computer implant which many wrongly speculate. Did Christ die for our sins, or did he die for computer implants? Is this not a ridiculous theology which millions of Christians have fallen for?.Lets list some rational truth's concerning this subject taken directly from the Bible. The mark originated with Cain, in the Old Testament. Cain killed his brother Abel and sought to cover his sin by hiding his murderous crime. God asked Cain,where is thy brother? Cain said, I know not, am I my brothers keeper? Cain was marked after becoming the the example of satanic behavior God detests. God then cursed the works of CainÂ’s handÂ’s, the ground he tilled no longer brought forth her strength. In other wordÂ’s, a bad economy then followed the mark. Can we not identify this mark as Gods curse upon CainÂ’s right handed works? Why? Cain had yielded himself to SatanÂ’s power by failing to bring forth good fruits, breaking Gods commandments. It was Satan who was symbolized in the Bible as being the cursed beast (the
