One of the things that has always completely confused me is why people make reference to Biblical things (like The Mark of the Beast), but don't
actually use the Bible to find out about them.
Revelation says this:
"He (the Beast from the Earth) 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 666."
There is one key point you need to note here.
It's not just a number - it's the number OF HIS NAME. Not YOUR name, HIS name.
The Mark of the Beast isn't just an RFID chip or a tattoo. It's not something you'll take inadvertently or accidentally. Like you say, it's a mark
of OWNERSHIP. This is why there is no mercy shown to those with the Mark (Revelation 14:11 - "the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever;
and they have no rest day or night") - because those who take the Mark have willingly given their allegiance and their very being to the Antichrist,
the false Prophet and the Dragon (that is, the devil - c.f. Rev. 12). Taking an RFID chip to open the door to your business isn't the same as signing
your life over to the devil's representative on earth. Not even close.
