This thread is based on the RFID one but come on let us just cut to the chase. Would you accept the MOTB? Please try and be serious but also imagine it really was real. Maybe the dude won't be as evil as others claim? Maybe you still want to eat without having to skin your own deer. And who says it can't be a chick?

Accept the mark, stay alive. It will be no different from the dark ages, so long as I don't get slaughtered for being a witch I'm okay with it.

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

I would say that my views are similar to those in the RFID thread, but you are talking about a completely different scenario altogether. Because, from what I can see that you are saying, there is no real benefit of having said MOTB, except for basic amenities, I would have to say that I, personally, would run from it for as long/far away as I could. Again, because it has no benefit.

Also, yes I am ignoring the Antichrist bit, this is a political/moral view, the person under which you are branded should not matter, but the branding itself.

Fear of death is over rated.  We all do it in our own good time and no complaints so far ;)     I wouldn't receive a mark.  Did you know that in the time of the Inquisition they had devices to gag Christians so that they could not "witness" AS they were being killed?  Now THAT is fear my friend  :tu:

So this is hypothetical and saying if the Devil was real etc.


Which would mean god and heaven where real?

I'd fight the beast.... Then if it killed me, I'd go to heaven....

I won't accept the chip ever, even if it's not the mark of the beast. I like being natural.

I agree with Coffey, if it was a reality and therefore the existence of heaven and hell are as a result a known reality then the only option is to fight or martyr.

Accepting the mark would basically be going back to the slave days and that is what You would become a slave

In the short term You would receive basic amenities like food water heat etc but at what cost  later on after having accepted the mark (once they got what they want)?

As I stated in the RFID chip thread, there is no way on this earth I would accept either the MOTB or the RFID chip

Even if it meant starving, being tortured etc

If You were to do that, then the antichrist would still win (theoretically) as suicides (supposedly) automatically go to hell

I think the better question is would you know what the Mark of the Beast is?

The bible is clear that evil is crafty. Chances are that this mark would not be something one would recognize as belonging to the antichrist.

It would be disguised as something else.  Perhaps a code identifing one as a member of a group. It might be a microchip. Perhaps as a safety measure.  It might be requires to prove citizenship.

Imagine that one. A policy in which everyone recieves a mark or microchip to prove that they are a citizen. Similar to your social insurance number. It could be advertised to the public as a means to separate citizens from illegal immigrates.

It could be sold to the public as an alterative to debt or credit card if it were a microchip in the hand. As the bible says this mark will be required to buy or sell.

Assuming the Antichrist exists I doubt he would gain a following by announcingwho and what he/she is or wants.

So, we haven't defined Antichrist or what the Mark would mean yet?
Is this strictly in the Abrahamic ideology or can we Luciferians jump in?
Is the Mark of the Beast the same as the Mark of Cain?
