YES and NO: I believe this is in process of happening, we are being conditioned to this every day, more and more companies are requiring direct deposits, people are using electronic transfers to pay their debts, more people are using plastic debt cards or CC to pay for everyday things… we are being forced into this system like it or not.

So, OP, are you suggesting the credit card is the "Mark of the Beast?"
I'll never understand this need to believe that a God who is supposed to be tolerant, patient, and loving, is going to bring his wrath upon us because we were tricked by Satan into having some mark placed upon our body.
Call me cynical, but I just have a hard time understanding these assertions.....especially since in my entire lifetime, and in all the lifetimes of the people I've known, we have yet to see some miraculous event that would even remotely suggest that Satan is gonna make an appearance and send us off to slaughter or that Jesus is gonna come down from heaven on a white horse out of the sky with trumpets blaring.
Ever occur to you that maybe some things in the Bible are not 100% factual?
