I never thought so many people would be willing to receive the implant to buy and sell that the bible says will happen. Today I am positive that most amerikans will gladly accept the antichrist's mark to buy and sell even though it will mean eternal damnation.
While doing some shopping this morning, I joked with the cashier about 'do you still take cash'. "Of course" she replied. And I stated, maybe not for very long, that Louisiana just passed a law prohibiting cash transactions for second hand merchandise. This cashier thought it was a great idea and exclaimed how cash should be done away with because it would "stop the sale of stolen goods"1
I never expected that an amercan would make such a statement. We are still a free country and our money is still stamped 'This note is legal tender for all debts public and private' right on the front. It is a sad day when anyone - especially americans - in a free society would want cash done away with and wants to prohibit businesses from accepting cash just because some people are selling stolen property (wonder if Craigslist is now illegal in Louisiana?) Next she will think it's a good idea to implant people with a chip in order to "prevent ID theft". This is one HUGE step towards the mark of the antichrist - and anyone who accepts it will be condemned to hell forever:
9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice, If any man worshippeth the beast and his image, and receiveth a mark on his forehead, or upon his hand,10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is prepared unmixed in the cup of his anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:11 and the smoke of their torment goeth up for ever and ever; and they have no rest day and night, they that worship the beast and his image, and whoso receiveth the mark of his name.
Earlier this year, the Louisiana legislature almost unanimously passed a law that prohibits the use of cash in secondhand transactions.
