Pay by fingerprint? Visa’s new card makes it possible

Fast Company, Jan. 16, 2018

Millions of consumers already use biometrics technology, like thumbprint scans, to unlock their phones and confirm in-app purchases. Now, similar technology is moving from phones to plastic. With Visa’s new fingerprint card, consumers will be able to avoid four-digit pins and signatures when making in-store purchases. Instead, they will place their finger on a small scanner embedded, like an EMV chip, into the front of their credit or debit card. If the scan is a match, the scanner will activate a small green light. “It’s fast, it’s seamless,” says Visa SVP Mark Nelsen. “It validates me in a fraction of a second.”

Dennis Edwards: Are we moving toward the famous mark of the beast technology? The Apostle John prophesied that in the time of the end an evil world leader would arise on the scene with great popularity. During the last three and a half years before Christ's return, he would implement an obligatory "mark of the beast" in other for any one to buy or sell. 

Many Bible students have speculated about what the mark could be. One current idea is that it will be some sort of bio-metric system of identification.  Modern technology makes the prophecies more probable. We read from the book of Revelation: "And he causeth 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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."[1]
