From USA Today newspaper (Nov 25, 2012):
Palm scanners get thumbs up in schools, hospitals
He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is six hundred and sixty-six.
Or do you believe that biometric scanners don’t fulfill this end-times prophecy?
If you are concerned about a literal mark of the beast, then at what point do you believe that Bible believers should refuse to cooperate?
Thank you for your thoughtful insights. They are valuable, since they might help to clarify the thinking of others who have similar concerns as yours.
