Opinion: Once in a while, I like to quote excerpts from your responses. Yesterday our new contributor Psalm 37, responded to our post on a coming ban on cash and implanted microchips. It fits just right:
“I am very happy to see that there have been big steps toward a cashless society. While I have heard many “Christians” complaining about it and whining about how scared they are about the situation, I am thrilled. For Christians, this only means that Jesus is just around the corner, about to welcome us with open arms into His paradise. For those claiming to be Christians yet are actually worried about the cashless society issue, they need to open a Bible and do a bit of serious studying of God’s Word. It is good when Bible prophecies come to life before our very eyes.”
Amen to that.
