2 Timothy 3
3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,
disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4
treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do
with such people.
The mark is selfishness. What is the mind frame of animals? They are selfish by nature. The mark of mankind is Carbon (6 protons, 6 electrons, 6
neutrons). This mark also extends to our commerce system based on fossil fuel. Our fruit of knowledge is the technology that produces our
selfishness for more. What you see and grab is literally in our hand and forehead. It is IN and not ON.
Above, there are 18 markers of selfishness. They are divided 6+6+6. The ENTIRE Bible is one large parable about giving rather than taking. Each
story ends with the lessons of doing for others. This is the sacrifice of the temple to overcome the beast. As we live our lives daily, we are
placed in situations where a choice to serve our selves or others is experienced. Suffering for others brings reward. Taking reward ends in
suffering. Taking is the mark of a thief. One thief on the cross repented and the other did not. Baptism is our immersion into the waters of life
so we can rise to new life. To rise, we must overcome our own selfish natures and serve others. Christ washed the feet of the disciples as our
example. He died on a cross rather than living his own life.
Selfishness is the mark of the beast.

If you're American, you either REMEMBER your Social Security Number (it's in/on your head)
or, you show your Social Security Number card in your hand.
Marks need not be literal. As exampled by the Social Security Number system (which you are required to have to get a job), such a "Mark" of the
"beast" may already be a reality in the USA.
All the super Christians of 'Murica gotz the Mark!
Eh. It'd be quite funny if true.
