The Mark of the Beast short video produced by BibleorTraditions
Is the mark of the beast future or a fulfilled event approximately 200 years ago? The babylonian mark is found cover to cover in scripture but this specific event we are told preceded judgment of the vials of God's wrath on all those with the mark of the beast.
"And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God on the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image." (Revelation 16:1,2)
We are further told this about the mark of the beast ...
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." (Revelation 14:9-12)
Two groups; those who have the babylonian mark, and God's people.

The scripture are clear about the Roman Church being the beast (Daniel 2 & 7) and Mystery Babylon Mother of Harlots, which even a few Catholic Bibles admit. We are also told in the Bible God has his people in all churches but asks that they need to "come out of her my people before you receive her plagues."
The passage posted is what's missing from the video, the law of God. Those with the mark of babylon either fail to keep the law or the faith of Jesus with their works (of the hand) or their traditions over the written word (mind). (Deuteronomy 6:2,8) No matter which curch they belong.
We are told in scripture who the beast is and what it's mark is, there's no need to speculate about a microchip. Some focus on the, "not being able to buy or sell", to assume this is to do with technology we see today. We are all well within the beast empire government with our Social Security numbers, a microchip would be no different in theological theory, only more controlling in practice. (i'll be avoiding it if possibe, but don't believe it will ever happen more than already in use.)

Your belief is base on... what exactly?
So you think that all Catholics have the Mark of the Beast, because... you say so?
Ever hear of something called facts and/or evidence?
Or even logic?
Hatred and ignorance makes a poor substitute. Go learn something before you try to "teach" others.
