The evils of tyranny are rarely seen but by him who resists it.

In Not On
There is a lot of misinformation out there. Some of it intentional, some unintentional. I'd like to mention one here.
In recent times, the bible has been translated to say "On the forehead" or "on the right hand." Thus people are thinking the Mark of the Beast is some sort of tatoo. This is wrong, unintentional, but still wrong. The Geneva bible (1599) translates Rev. 13:16 this way:
And he made all both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to recieve a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads.
This is the correct translation. You carry your Social Security card in your hand. You memorize your SSN in your head. It's in, not on.
