Discover Ministry Briefing! --> The Best Way To Keep "In The Know"!
I grew up in a church culture that taught and actually believed that the return of Jesus was imminent.
That had it good sides and it’s bad sides.
Great for evangelism. Great for making sure you’re living like Jesus is coming back soon (because He is). Great for a lot of things.
Bad for some other things… like thinking that every thing (and I mean EVERY THING) was a sign of the end times.
Backmasking. (if you don’t know what that is… you haven’t lived). That told how close the world was to end.
The Illuminati. Some great conspiracy that would lead to a one world government.
And don’t forget the introduction of the visa card. That was for sure going to be a tool of the anti-christ.
OK… that sounds silly.
But now… look at this:
“You wear it like a temporary tattoo, but it’s certainly for more than just style. A company has developed an electronic sensor that attaches like a “second skin” to your body and monitors your health.
Originally crafted for sports physicians, company MC10 designed a microchip that can now be printed directly on the skin. The bond to the health sensor is formed with spray-on bandage material you might find in stores.
Since it’s bound directly to the skin, the “epidermal electronics” can detect things like the temperature of the wearer and hydration levels.”
uh… yeah… and how much you have in your bank account, what books you read…
and whether or not you’ve taken the sign of the beast.
Please understand that I am only slightly in jest.
Technology will, I believe, play a major role in the end times. I do think that it fits logically with what the Bible predicts.
And I do still believe that Jesus will return soon. (I hope very soon).
But when I see things like this, it reminds me of my young days, when everything was pointing to the imminent return of Jesus.
I wonder… was that a good thing… or a bad thing?
