A Nevada state senator has proposed a bill that would protect citizens from being implanted with RFID chips. The bill, proposed by a constituent, could protect people from what some feel is the Mark of the Beast mentioned in Revelation.
Senate Bill 109, introduced by Nevada state Senator, Becky Harris (R-Las Vegas) would make it a class C felony for anyone to force another person to undergo microchipping.
The chips cost about $100 and can be used to track people, to allow them to make purchases and even to unlock doors. They are secure and cannot be lost or stolen. They can help facilities keep track of dementia patients. They could also be used to monitor health conditions. They are most commonly used to keep track of pets.
However, there is concern these chips are the Mark of the Beast mentioned in Revelation.
â€˝It compelled everyone — small and great alike, rich and poor, slave and citizen — to be branded on the right hand or on the forehead, and made it illegal for anyone to buy or sell anything unless he had been branded with the name of the beast or with the number of its name” (Revelation 13:16-17).
About 30,000 to 50,000 people already have these chips implanted, and their popularity is growing.
About 10 other states have laws against human microchipping, but there are no laws at the federal level. In states without such laws, people can be microchipped against their will or as a condition of their employment.
For centuries, scholars have speculated over the Mark of the Beast, debating if it is a tattoo, a bar code, or some other mark. It has been speculated that your cellphone could already serve the purpose, often carried in the right hand and held to the head, the phone serves as an all-purpose device. Most people feel they cannot go without it.
Harris’ bill remains in committee.
