There's a lot of talk these days about the coming cashless society and electronic money being the next step in our monetary evolution. Is it true, and if so, what will it mean to you and your family?
First of all, did you know that today 91 % of all financial transactions are already electronic? The computer revolution is gradually replacing the need for any cash or currency at all. The reasons are simple: E-Money is more convenient, faster, and cheaper than paper currencies -- but what should we as Christians make of this?
E-Money is the final step toward abstract money and away from tangible money. Technology can be harnessed for both good and evil. The question is, does E-Money line up with the Word of God? The answer is only if it is based on a just weight and measure and is redeemable in something of substance, like gold or silver. Today the only substance backing E-money, or any other currency is FAITH. Faith in the ungodly credit/debt system. E-Money is helping to promote the New World Order goal of more government control, less financial freedom, and no privacy. The only way to convince citizens that this is in their best interest is to offer perks, like banking from home, lower fees, etc. But there is always a price for convenience.
Over the next 20 years E-Money will gradually replace the need for banks, checks, and even cash, according to Newsweek magazine. The internet offers the perfect vehicle to see the One World Order currency that globalists have dreamed of for decades finally become a reality. But my question is: "Why can't Christians support E-Money which is backed by gold, silver or even wheat?" Rather than just sitting back and watching the whole world fall for a lie, we must stand for the truth. Economic truth is always based on God's truth, and frankly, I'm tired of watching the devil enslave the world in a ungodly debt system that secretly steals the wealth of it citizens through inflation.
Dr. Franz Pick, the famous Austrian free market economist summed it up best, "the destiny of a currency determines the destiny of a nation." While it is true that we Christians cannot stand in the way of legitimate progress in our society, we must stand against unbiblical, unconstitutional assault against our family that occurs as a result of both ignorance and indifference regarding the future of our money.
