Scanning the Face

I know what occurred to me first.

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads" came to me, but as soon as I started to think about it, none of the parallels would line up parallel.

This is happening in the official, approved "three self" church, which is interesting in that even participating the official communist-approved government-run indigenous form of "christianity" makes one a second-class citizen. And not merely oneself, but one's relatives also, made ineligible for any mid-to-high-status employment by your mere attendance at church.

Officially, I suppose there is no bar on anyone going to church who wants to. But everyone knows there that it is bad not only for their own economic prospects, but also for their extended family if they do. And now it is pretty explicit that one can't sneak in and out in hopes of not being noticed - registration is required.
