Handy reference FAQ from Wired today: RFID: To Tag or Not to Tag
Retailers love them, privacy advocates eye them with suspicion and some Christians think they're the "mark of the beast." For such tiny devices, RFIDs are stirring up huge controversies.
But even as the tags infiltrate a range of things from clothing and pets to passports and license plates, confusion abounds over how the devices work, and what problems and advantages they bring.
Here are answers to some of the most common questions about this increasingly ubiquitous technology: [...]

ALL INFORMED CHRISTIANS
KNOW RFID CHIPS ARE THE MARK OF THE BEAST
AND AS SUCH, 1 WAY TICKETS TO ETERNAL TORMENT IN THE LAKE OF FIRE.
Stay far away from them.
JESUS is the only way to GOD and heaven.
Neither is there salvation in any other.
For there is no other name on earth given among men whereby YOU MUST BE SAVED!
Please, if you haven't given your life to JESUS yet...do it now!
NO ONE loves you as much as HE does.
Think of how HE sacrificed HIMSELF to save you, me, everyone from their sins, so that WHOSOEVER would call on HIS name shall be saved.
JESUS never stops praying for you...and HIS people are praying for you, too.
If you need help in any area, Call out to JESUS and HIS people. GOD Will hear and answer your prayers.
Now is the time the world is beginning to be turned upside down.
The end of time as we know it is fast approaching. Wars, famines, earthquakes, catastrophies of all sorts are being poured out on the earth, YOUR FURY and ANGER on those who reject YOU and YOUR HOLY Ways.
Please GOD, in YOUR Wrath remember mercy...please send YOUR HOLY SPIRIT even now to reach out to those who haven't yet turned away from their ways to seek to do YOUR ways. Show them the TRUTH I pray in JESUS name.amen
To Cammie, the Christian lady that posted the MARK OF THE BEAST warning about RFID:
You need to repent Cammie, because you are sinfully STUPID.
Pul your head out of where the sun don't shine and ask God for his forgiveness that you do not use the brain and good sense that He gave you.
Technology is for the adaptive use and betterment of humanity, and if you will rise to the challenge, you too can make a better world through the use of applied physics.
The Lord had mildly amused disdain for self-created morons, Cammie. Get a grip!
I am a born-again Christian. As far as I know, the mark of the beast only comes during the tribulation time (review revelation) that will come upon all of the earth, during which the anti-christ rises to power, but all of this only after we are raptured from this earth (our blessed hope)! I have not been raptured - therefore the anti-christ has not yet been revealed - therefore RFID cannot be the mark of the beast. It may lend itself to being used in such a way in the future, as technology grows, but for right now, it is not a sin to use such technology. Over-zealousness has caused quite a ruckus and puts mud on the Christian face when bible elements, especially end-times prophecy, is used to out of place. We are in the last days, that is for sure, but we are definetely not in the tribulation.
