Is Bitcoin an option for Christians?

The internet is full of opinions about Bitcoin including many Christians who believe that it is bad and connected to the mark of the beast in Revelation 13.

Let's take a look at it ...

 

The beast out of the sea

As described in Revelation 13 ...

- This beast comes out of the sea;

- It has great power and authority from the dragon;

- The whole world follows and worships this beast;

- This beast exercisies its authority for 42 months;

- It has a loud mouth that blasphemes God;

- It wages war against God's people;

- All will worship this beast except those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.

 

The beast out of the earth

As described in Revelation 13 ...

- This beast comes out of the earth,

- It has two horns like a lamb but speaks like a dragon;

- It has all the authority of the first beast;

- It makes all people on earth worship the first beast;

- It deceives people by doing great wonders, even bringing fire down from heaven on to the earth;

 - It orders people to set up an image of the first beast and that they will be killed if they do not worship this image;

- It forces all people to receive a mark on their right hands or foreheads. Without this mark they cannot buy or sell;

- Those with wisdom are challenged to work out who this beast is by calculating its number;

- Its number is 666 and is the number of a man.

 

The mark of the beast?

Revelation 13:

- Describes the mark as being the name of the beast or the number of his name;

- Describes the mark as being forced on people to be received on their right hands or forehead;

- Outlines that people cannot buy or sell unless they receive this mark.

 

So in summary, the mark of the beast appears to be (literally or figuratively) the name or number of a man who has authority and power, is dictitorial and performs wonders. People are forced to have this name or number on their right hands or forehead, without which they cannot buy or sell.

 

Does this sound like Bitcoin? ... I'm not convinced.

 

Can Bitcoin be used for evil?

Of course it can, it is currency and just like normal money can be used for evil, so can Bitcoin. It's possible that Bitcoin could be used by the beast, but so could any currency including normal money. Most forms of money nowadays are transacted electronically. 

 

Can Bitcoin be used for good?

Absolutely! People need finances to fund their lives, put food on the table, put clothes on their backs, put roofs over their heads and provide for them in their retirement.

 

People need finances in order to be able to tithe, to give to those in need, to sow. The Kingdom needs finances on earth to fund ministries, charities, churches and more.

 

Bitcoin is currency, it is money, it is here to stay. It is already helping many people. Learn how you can get involved and start benefitting.

 

What does the bible say about prosperity?

 

To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance.

Matthew 25: 29 (NLT)
