Interesting cross reference to 1 Kings 10:14.

In Europe all cards have chip. Having already a card is the way toward the total control. The point is that we are more and more tracked. Every thing you buy with your CC is recorded, what and where. In the coming times every our move will be recorded, and if you want to protest against the elite, you will be 'removed'.

 

By the way, every time when I visit this topic I am forced to download some unknown file. The admin, please check the security.

This is true, but keep in mind that christian culture has actually been the impetus to having all our moves recorded and controlled.

As christians we must stop the need to force or accept utopian ideals on this earth in this life. We fell for it with communism and we have fallen for it in all  traditionally christian societies as when we register every man woman and child with a social security number from the day they start breathing for need to be subsidized in old age. This Utopian ideology of cradle to the grave protection by big brother where serial numbers are issued to identify you and your social benefits and fiat money is your birth right is not the gospel message, not that most christians would know this as the social justice utopia was begat from their societies.

Keep in mind that the documentation of the population is not exclusively or even originally of western Christian origin.  Our Lord was born in Bethlehem because Joseph and his betrothed wife Mary who was great with child traveled there to be registered in the census of the Roman Empire.

What makes spiritual life valuable is the historical aspect of it.

 

Even Pontius Pilate is mentioned in the creed, although he has no spiritual position.
