    Maybe they are keeping tabs on the traffic coming to their site so they can advertise more when it's up and running, post March 1st of course. Lol

    Indeed, this actually came up in the conversation were I heard about this initially.
    Sigh.

    Every century since the writing of revelations people have thought they encountered the mark of the beast in their contemporary times or knew what it literally meant.
    Whether or not this is a fulfillment of prophesy doesn't change the fact that it's bad. However, pumping up of the prophesy can cause panic, worry and unwise decisions like not saving for the future.

    Not as scary as people make it to be. If you did not even turn on web history in the first place, you wouldn't need to worry.

    Huh? I'm not saying I know what it literally will be, I was referring to the question about whether people will be off-the-grid any more in the future. According to the Bible, no.

    So don't read it or look at it is what you're saying? That's pumping it up? I don't recall advising anyone to sell all their crap and pull their retirement savings and buy a cabin in the woods. That's a rather large leap you took there.

    Who's taking the large leap? Did I accuse you of those things or explicitly draw any of those conclusions?

    I just gave my standard concerns whenever revelations prophesy is brought up. Given the massive popularity of Tim Lahaye and the consistent patterns of church behavior over many generations I don't think bringing up those concerns is a mistake. I'm sorry if you felt I was accusing you of anything.

    It's all good man.

    I do think the book explicitly spells out a time period in the future where people will not be able to live off of the grid. That much is clear. That type of absolute control wasn't conceivable when the book was written. Given we are speeding ahead toward the ability/technology/globalization to have that type of environment, it bears watching. Not to mention a raised eyebrow.
