Mark of the Beast

A company in Sweden uses microchips to tag employees, similar to chips used in pets. The implanted chip allows employees to “…open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a swipe of the hand.” In my mind I’ve always assumed the mark of the beast was a visible mark that would allow people, at a glance, to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Now I’m not so sure. John said, “He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name” (Rev 13:16-17 NIV).
