  •  I agree, to some extent. But I also remember, 1994 (1+ / 0-)

    when I was secretary to an extremely progressive software company that was bringing online things like relating of state database records of motor vehicles to voter rolls, etc. So long ago that it was before Windows, and even though the people worked with were aware they were ten years away from "Y2K" they weren't worried about it because everyone was still assuming, as they did in the beginning, that the infrastructure would change before the century did.
         No one I knew in regular life was worried about a security state back then. But the church people knew, and they had a book that described how that creepy guy you didn't want to date could now call a friend who had access to your motor vehicle records and give him your plate number and he could come stalk you. Previous to the computer databeast, that guy would have had to work a lot harder to trace you.
         So, whether or not you believe we are Racing Towards the Mark of the Beast, it's still only fair to give credit where credit is due. The Christians called it first as far as "computers, your money, and the end of the world".
         I walk the line between both worlds, encouraging the Christians that being prepared is good for any emergency, so do it, but don't live in fear- that's not love, and the book says "God is Love".
         But I also encourage the not-church-world to listen to the wisdom of the poetry of the stories these people are telling, because we live in a country delineated by their rhythms and rhymes.
         Or do we plan to stop referring to this as [the year of Our Lord] Two thousand thirteen this year?

    We are all pupils in the eyes of God.
