Read the article and focus on this sentence;
"It is very reasonable to think that in the future all Americans will elect to have RFID chips or legislation will be passed that mandates RFID chips".
Understand what the word "Mandate" means.
It is coming to a State near you in the future.
Personally, whatever slippery agreement is used to convince me to be tagged like this I will refuse. No Jew, Muslim or Christian feels comfortable with this. No matter how convenient or useful it is to the authorities and my so called health, no way, no way!!!
It is kind of funny how each generation declares it knows what the mark of the beast is, starting with the Cristians in Neros Rome whom though it was Roman coinage, to people who thought it was a Social Security number, then barcodes and now RFID chips. I suppose in 20 years we wil have another thing people decalre the be it based upon a vague referance in a book that barely got into the Bible and was kicked out by the Prostistant Reformation for awhile.
You have just said it yourself. Your words reveal how this will all happen. Great! Shall I chop off my head now or later???
I'm only joking with you! Me, I'm just living out my life with my Treasure that I found.
I'll say to you that if ever a chip becoming part of my body is a mandatory requirement of being able to be part of the system I would choose to no longer function in that world. It disgusts me that deeply and no amount of persuasion can change my mind about that. I'll just see it as the time to make an exit and marvel at St John's accuracy of vision two thousand years ago!
Well, consider this:
There may very well be other religious sects similar that eschew the facilities of modern technologies.
It might be interesting in taking a survey or doing a study on whether any of these groups will accept pacemakers, internal defib devices, and other such medical technologies as something of a comparison for tolerance of implantable technologies.
Should social systems develop to such a point where RFID or some similar "Mark of the Beast" technology is required, in all seriousness, those opposed will likely fracture off from society, just like the Amish, Quakers, and Mennonites, to form yet another anachronistic society that winds up preserving a way of life eventually to be considered just as antiquated as the Amish, Quakers, and Mennonites.
It might be interesting in taking a survey
How about you Alice Is it safe to say you wouldn't hesitate to receive
an identifying totalitarian mark of a global state? As if there is just
nothing at all to mans spirituality. Only that which is simply organically
mechanized. Right ?

Goodness, I am not sure how to even reply to you. You think we are closer as human beings, have you read the news lately?
I know I have a ss# it is not imbeded in my skin tracking my every move though. Same with my credit cards etc....
How can you not see how we are already being controlled and you want to allow the government more access to your body? Asinine. Are you afraid that by thinking these are a bad idea that you will be considered religious? I am not religious and I can plainly see how wrong this is. It is okay to think for yourself and not just how you think others would want you to think, at least we still have that right at this specific moment.
This is about rfid chips and whether or not they are a good or bad thing and you are talking about space exploration, and peace ideas i'm fond of but irrevelant to the subject. This is plainly about rfid chips we honestly have no idea what these things might do to our bodies, it is a foreign substance after all, government tracking aside.
I agree the world is filled with wonderous things trust me rfid chips tracking us and every breath we take are not it.
Back to the op, do you have a link on what his congregation thinks of his actions? I did not see anything on that on the link provided.edit on 3-12-2013 by brandiwine14 because: (no reason given)
I don't understand the whole fear mongering over "Mark of the Beast".
If it's really biblical prophecy realized, then adherents to such mythologies, I'd think would be rejoicing in the streets in celebrating it as a sign that the Jesus Rapture Spaceship will soon be here to zap them away.
Further, as far as biblical prophecy goes, those that don't take "The Mark" will not be able to work, buy, sell, or trade anything.
This is wonderful in the respect that Persecution Fetish Mythologies get to actually feel what real persecution is all about, not because of their faith as they might claim, but, as a result of their own self marginalization due that faith.
This will open up jobs too. All those refusing to take "The Mark" will basically be handing their job over to someone else that takes employment much more serious than belief in a mythology.
Everyone essentially wins in getting something they want.
