Biometrics, Fingerprint Technology, And The Mark Of The Beast

Biometrics or fingerprint technologies, is there an inherent evil in these things? Could it be that a person might be taking the dreaded “mark of the beast” when they participate in technologies like this?  These are things that are discussed in light of the technologies that are right on our doorstep.

Recently Apple bought the fingerprint technology company AthenTec.  Many who watch the smartphone market realize Apple has put this fingerprint technology in the iPhone in order to protect users from fraud – and to allow Apple iPhone users to use their phones to buy items safely.  Those using the Android operating system on their phones are quickly following suit in the use of such technology in their applications.  Japanese officials are have been using such technology in speeding up their airline process at their international airports.  Even our schools are getting in on the use of such technology to improve security and speed up transactions.   Moss Bluff Elementary School wants to use a Biometric system that measures the unique structure of blood vessels in a person’s hand to make cafeteria lines move quicker at their school.  Florida schools are considering biometric scans prior to using library privileges or boarding school buses.  Some Minnesota schools are already using fingerprint technology to verify parents who pick up their children from school.  This technology is coming – and we need to be ready for it. 

The problem is that some groups are saying that any use of technology of this kind constitutes accepting the mark of the beast spoken of in Revelation 13:15-18.  Their stance is a flat-out rejection of anything that even remotely has to do with such things.  But before we reject this technology, we probably ought to take a look at this passage and seek to understand it better. 

And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.  And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,  and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.  Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.   (Revelation 13:15-18)

There are several things we should be aware of in connection with the infamous mark of the beast.  These are things that will keep us from the kind of “knee-jerk” reactions that make people think we are nuts for even mentioning such things.  It will also help us to be taken seriously when things like this come up in conversation and we say ignorant things when commenting on such matters.  I remember times when people were wigging-out over credit cards and the magnetic strip on the back side of them.  I was warned by people numerous times that even having a card like this meant I had taken the mark of the beast.  Thank God I had a mentor who taught me to look to the Scriptures themselves and not get caught up in the goofiness that often surrounds too much of what passes for serious discussions of biblical prophecy. 

Let’s note several things that will help us identify the mark of the beast.  First, we need to see the context of all this - Revelation 13:11-13 says, “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon.  He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.  He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.”  Before we freak out about biometrics or fingerprint technology, we might want to check the news.  Because to my knowledge – nothing like what we see in these three verses has happened yet.  I know of no character who has wielded worldwide authority – and who has received a fatal wound that has been healed.  I know of no one who has afterward constructed an image.  This authority figure called the “Beast” is not currently forcing people to worship an “image” doing “great signs” and even making fire fall from heaven.  If that is the case – and I believe it is – then these current technologies do not involve receiving the mark of the beast.  They may be precursors to technologies that will be used for this purpose. 

Let’s look at more here.  This shady character, the Beast, has yet to make an image
speak – or have it kill those who will not worship him.   Note that this “mark” is forced upon people and that it is received on their right hand or on their forehead.  

Then what do we make of all these goings on among us?  Well honestly, it is the march of technological progress.  It also may be how technology is moving toward a time when the “mark of the beast” is going to be applied to those who worship the Beast.
Other than this – it is just technology on its ever progressive march on our world.  Of course many of you non credit card holding people may reject this.
