Currently it is a choice, sooner or later it will not be. They'll be inserting chips right after birth.

No one fights all the chips in our phones, tv's, computers or cars. Look at all the people who still buy Ring or Alexa after Amazon frickin admitted to spying on the people who own these devices. We've already given up our right to privacy without so much as a whisper.

If you see this as proof god exists... google the story about the little girl falling to her death on a cruise ship... there's your counter... no god.

'Not believe' was one of your choices, but instead of choosing that you had to go on a rabid anti-God schlep. Just pointing out who is zealous here, a zeal that causes believers to wonder why.

I am having difficulty accepting Google as my email host, storing all my correspondence off site in their facilities. My paranoia got worse when the Google VP admitted to changing algorithms to disfavor Trump in their search engines. Clearly they all have an agenda that isn't about serving their customers.

Would be nice to find a competent service that doesn't store customer info off site; my own computer had been sufficient for the previous 20 years.

Did you miss the OP's 2nd post?

"Who are the two people that said they wouldn't take it but won't trust in Lord. Can I ask why? I mean how much more proof would you need that the Bible was correct and God is God? just curious? I mean if you if don't believe God is God why not take the chip?"

Not sure what this has got to do with God or belief.

I am not a believer, but just the same I am not going to let someone implant me with a chip. Also, as for other concerns that were raised, not all of us spend every waking moment with a cell phone.

Might have a little to do with it

Revelation 13:16-17 King James Version (KJV)

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

So her grandfather dropped the kid(was he dangling her over the side) and you blame God gotcha. How is believing the imaginary bang theory working out for ya?

btw God never said this world was perfect because of sin. You want perfect you have to believe in His Son and then go to Heaven.

Seriously? You have to ask this question?

I am not a religious person, but there is no way I would let the government, or anyone else for that matter, implant a chip in my body over which I had no control. If you can't see why, I'm not sure I can explain it to you.

Eternity is longer than life though. This was a tragic event that ruined a family for reasons we may not understand. However i believe the little girl is in heaven currently, meaning she is better off than the rest of her family and quite frankly the rest of us as well. Someday the family will get to see her again.

you're taking the term "mark" and applying it out of context.

It's hard to look back, and say for sure what I would have done. For the sake of convenience, I probably would have done it for the company, as I worked for the largest defense contractor in the world, and normally in a highly classified facility.

I would, however, definitely have had it removed when I retired. I would never knowingly agree to have a pure .gov device implanted.

And before anyone says the company device was already a .gov device, you would be wrong. There is no way the company would give up the filter between it, and the .gov. That would likely be disastrous to them.
