When i was young, only men had tattoos. Women rarely had them. Now, it seems that women find it fashionable to disfigure themselves with ink as well.
Maybe you find me judgmental for the above statement and maybe I am. Mostly, though, it is an observation.
Before I continue, I believe I should make the disclaimer, I am not a profit. God has not revealed some special truth to me. However, I read the Bible and I observe.
The Bible says that people will take the mark of the beast and that nobody will be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast.
If the mark of the beast is a tattoo, women would not have been willing to disfigure themselves decades ago. Nowadays, no problem. With one of those square bar codes, unique for each person a person could replace virtually all forms of identification.
The tattoos would, in theory fix many problems: ID theft, loss of documents (credit cards, driver’s license, military ID, SS card, etc.), loss of cash, etc. It would even do away with car keys. The person with the mark could simply hold out a hand to his car to gain access and then start his vehicle.
I am sure the list goes on and on. It would make the mark very attractive and very practical.
Understand. I am not saying that it is the way it will be. I am saying that such a system is far more acceptable today than yesterday. I am just as sure that it will become more acceptable with the passing of each day, year and decade.
Then again, I might be completely wrong. Regardless, I don’t think I am going to take any bar code tatts.
For my aside today, such a system would not only make it easier for the consumers but for big brother too. Every time you make a purchase or sell big brother will know. It is a world that the author of “1984” could not have imagined. On the other hand, it is just the world that Satan would love.
