Thanks to the Louisiana Conservative Dot Com (louisianaconservative.com) we have this chilling report from Calcasieu Parish (Lake Charles) Louisiana.
Apparently, this local elementary school has decided to implement a system to ensure that each child gets proper credit for lunch bought in the school cafeteria. It was so startling that I needed confirmation. Here is a report from a television station. A highlight or two:
A local elementary school is trying to implement a new program in their cafeteria. But the palm vein scanner is being met with much opposition from Moss Bluff Elementary parents.
Yes, it is a device that scans the veins in a child’s PALM to determine the identity of the child and to make sure the right child’s account is accounted for. From the letter sent by the principal of the Moss Bluff Elementary School:
The Fujitsu PalmSecure – Palm Vein Scanner sensor uses near-infrared to capture a person’s palm vein pattern, generated a unique biometric template that is matched against pre-registered user palm vein patterns. The palm vein can only recognize the pattern if the blood is actively flowing through within the individual’s veins, which means that forgery is virtually impossible.
This is a type of the Mark of the Beast!
“And he caused all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13: 16-17 [KJV])
Thankfully, some parents in Calcasieu Parish know their Bible:
“I was very, very mad,” said parent Mamie Sonnier. “Disappointed.”
Many parents felt that way on Monday after reading a letter sent home with their children from Moss Bluff Elementary School. The letter introduced a new program, the palm vein scanner, to move students through the lunch line at a faster rate. With almost 1,000 students, Principal Charles Caldarera says the system will reduce errors.
Sonnier says she’s against the palm vein scanner because of her beliefs.
“As a Christian, I’ve read the Bible, you know go to church and stuff,” said Sonnier. “I know where it’s going to end up coming to, the mark of the beast. I’m not going to let my kids have that.”
The school will allow a opt-out option but the parents must state their intention by tomorrow (Wednesday, August 15). I think they should immediately do one other thing: Contact the superintendent and the school board and protest this outrage.
A bipartisan proposal, pitched by Sens. Charles Schumer and Lindsey Graham, to require biometric Social Security cards has the potential to remedy those problems. Such a credential would include an identifier, such as a fingerprint, to positively connect the card to the person presenting it.
Let me state my position clear: NO BIOMETRIC ID CARD! PERIOD! Every evangelical Christian needs to say NO to this kind of thing.
Finally, if you are skeptical about the Bible ask yourself this: How did the Apostle John (or whoever you think wrote Revelation 2000 years ago!) know about this type of technology? How did he know that someday all buying and selling would be controlled by technology. How did he know? Maybe God told him! If God did it – we better believe it!
Revelation also predicts the eternal fate of every human being: Some to heaven and some, maybe many to Hell:
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. * * * And I John saw holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” [Revelation 20:15, 21:2-3 (KJV)]
It is not God’s will that any perish but that all come to eternal life in Jesus Christ! (See II Peter 3:9) I urge you to reconsider the claims of Jesus Christ. If you want to know more, go to this site right away.
