Why we aren’t ‘preppers’ who store food, gold, guns, or ammunition

Why we arent preppers who store food gold guns or ammunition

It is very compelling for many people, particularly in America, to see the collapsing freedoms and growing persecutions across the world and want to do something to protect ourselves. This makes many choose to store certain items for times that are coming (or potentially upon us already) when chaos rules. My family disagrees with this viewpoint.

Before the attacks start coming in, there are two important things to consider. First, we have a good amount of food and survival gear as well as plenty of protection within our house. It’s not a coincidence that my children’s favorite pastime is weekends at the shooting range. Second, we have nothing against those who choose to live the “prepper” lifestyle. It’s a natural reaction from certain points of view.

There was a time not too long ago when we were what some would call “amateur preppers”. We bought long-term food stores. We maintained an independent water supply. We have family members who have enough guns and ammunition to hole up in solitude indefinitely without fear.

The reason we shifted our views away from deep preparations can be broken down into three categories.

1. Tribulation is an opportunity

Prepper MasksThe prophets were persecuted. The apostles were persecuted. Reading the Bible cover to cover reveals that very few people who lived by the Word of God were able to avoid the trials of this life.

This isn’t a call for people to go looking for trouble. We aren’t suggesting that everyone needs to go give away Bibles in China or preach the Word in Iran in hopes of getting arrested and persecuted. Some are clearly called to do such things, not for the sake of the persecution they’ll receive but to make disciples of the nations. Bold actions like these aren’t for everyone.

What we are saying is that the Bible makes it very clear that those who overcome their fears and face the tribulations, trials, and persecutions that are becoming increasingly robust around the world are blessed for their diligence and faith.

Matthew 5:10 (KJV)

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Romans 5:3-5 (KJV)

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

James 1:2-3 (KJV)

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

Our first goal is to accept the gift of salvation. Our second goal is to spread the Gospel to those we can touch. Once those two things are ongoing, we should continue to keep our security and health, but not at the detriment of either of the first two goals. In fact, Yeshua spoke of the importance of keeping the faith now for the grace to come instead of trying to focus on saving our bodies in this life.

Luke 9:23-25 (KJV)

23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

Total faith means knowing that whatever God has in store for you, whether it’s what we consider to be positive or negative, we must see beyond the effects on this life and believe that how we handle everything can be a merit at the time of judgment.

2. The Principalities and Powers are watching

Prepper GunsSome people get fearful chills when they read Revelation. Others get similarly scared at Daniel or Isaiah. For me, it’s Ephesians that worries me the most.

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

A look at the news on any given day will reveal two disturbing trends: the various governments and other entities of the world are tightening around us while the people are becoming more confused and looking towards sinful solutions.

The concept of having guns pried from our cold, dead hands is seeming to be more and more likely of a scenario.

Between technological advancements, emboldened governments, and desperate leads in and out of governments, it’s very unlikely that anyone can be truly safe. The only choices may end up being to die defending the farm or to face persecution. It’s definitely possible to do both, to be a prepper while still maintaining the right connection to faith, but it’s part of human nature to rely on our own works when we focus on solutions like those.

As I’ve discussed before, Christians shouldn’t prepare at an extreme level for an economic collapse. Again, we’re not suggesting that people should abandon their gold or silver. It simply can’t be a priority as it takes away from the proper focus of this life – unending love and faith in Yeshua as our Lord and Savior.

At no point would we ever recommend sitting back and watching our liberties fade into history. There are times to fight. There are times to hide. There are times to adjust. Of course, the one universal is that there is time for prayer, repentance, and service to our Lord.

3. Faith through the Armor of God is sufficient

Prepper CurrencyAs I’ve made abundantly clear on my other site, I do not believe in the doctrine of the pre-tribulation rapture. Those who are alive when the end times come will face tribulation whether they have guns or not.

There is a false security that is created when the works of our hands are used to solve problems as big as the tribulation from the Bible. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t act, but the real action comes from preparing our souls and putting on the whole Armor of God.

Those who prepare for catastrophe are distracted. We all are to some degree with everything that is in front of us in this world. One of our goals should be to remove or properly handle these distractions.

Being a prepper doesn’t make anyone any less of a Christian. It just makes being a good Christian harder. Of course, that could be said about pretty much everything in this world that’s not centered squarely on the Bible’s teachings.

Why the Project Veritas censorship story is bigger than you probably realize

Why the Project Veritas censorship story is bigger than you probably realize

Another day, another conservative news outlet censored, silenced, or purged. That seems to be the attitude coming from many in the media because, well, it’s just so darn commonplace now the public in general is no longer surprised. It’s expected. It’s becoming normalized.

But Project Veritas crossed a line by going after the blatantly corrupt actions of Pinterest in censoring Live Action as “porn.” The line they crossed was to expose a reality that’s not only true at Pinterest, but likely others in the progressive big tech news filtering business. Project Veritas walked in and presented Google, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other big tech companies with a mirror, forcing them to look at themselves and the biased methodology they employ when deciding what news is acceptable and what news is too dangerous for the poor, stupid masses to consume.

If you don’t think these companies believe you’re too stupid to think for yourself, just search for certain topics on any of these platforms. You and I are too stupid to think for yourself on topics like global warming, vaccines, or the 9/11 attacks, so you’re presented with the big-tech-approved “facts” so you won’t be misled. Again, they do this because they believe you and I are stupid.

This most recent installment of information suppression against Project Veritas is pitiful because it represents the quashing of ideas that run contrary to their narrative. They are pro-abortion, 100%, which is why Live Action had to be labeled as “porn.” They couldn’t find anything else in their terms of service to slap on Live Action’s content, so someone made the determination that they could get away with labeling it as porn. That, in itself, is a testament to the depravity rampant in these organizations. It takes a very sick mind to believe depictions of abortion can somehow arouse people. Perhaps some at Pinterest have different perspectives on what arouses them.

It’s imperative that every patriotic American is made aware of what was done to Project Veritas, Live Action, and anyone who wants the truth to be known. This is quickly becoming a post-truth society in which someone’s feelings supersede objective realities. This is beyond post-modernism. This is about autonomy, a world in which whatever a person feels is their personal objective truth regardless of what science, religion, culture, or common sense tells them.

In a post-truth society, reality can no longer be a defense against the follies of the collective.

Investigative reporting is only as powerful as the platform that broadcasts it. What the tech giants have done is limit the platforms they control to suppress the truth. Every American should stand opposed to this outrage.

Jessica Biel goes anti-vaxxer and Twitter goes nuts

Jessica Biel goes anti-vaxxer

If you want to get scorn from both sides of the political aisle, come out against vaccines. Progressives, conservatives, and everyone in between seems to have a majority of people in favor of laws that would force parents to get their children vaccinated.

California is currently debating legislation that would eliminate many of the exemptions currently used by parents to prevent their children from being vaccinated. Actress Jessica Biel met with lawmaker to discuss it, and suddenly Twitter is loaded with hate for the Total Recall reboot star.

When it comes to healthcare issues, the debate normally rests around costs. Healthcare rights of parents are ignored, pushed into the trash bin of “settled science” that makes many go completely unhinged when skeptics voice their concerns. Google has gone so far as to “educate” the population; you won’t find videos attacking vaccines without a clear warning by YouTube attempting to debunk their concerns.

For some reason, it’s been turned into a conspiracy theory when in reality it comes down to the rights of parents. But don’t call it that in the wrong crowd. You’ll be labeled an anti-vaxxer like Jessica Biel.

Symbolism: The tree planted at the White House by Trump and Macron has died

Symbolism The tree planted at the White House by Trump and Macron has died

In April, 2018, the Presidents of the United States and France dug a hole together on the White House lawn to plant an oak tree. It was from the Belleau Wood north-east of Paris where 1,811 Americans died in June 1918 while fighting in WWI.  The tree was supposed to symbolize the strong relationship between America and France and act as a reminder of the importance of our alliance.

But relationships between the two Presidents have been deteriorating as Emmanuel Macron’s staunch adherence to globalism has clashed with President Trump’s belief in nationalism.

Just as the relationship has soured, so too has the tree. It has been confirmed as dying in quarantine.

After the planting in front of their wives and the press, the tree was uprooted and placed in quarantine as required by law. It never made it out of quarantine, just as the relationship between the far-left Macron and the populist conservative Trump has never been positive. They first clashed over the Paris Climate Accords, which President Trump backed out of shortly after moving into the White House. From there, the two leaders have headed in opposite directions. Macron, who was considered to be a centrist during his campaign before demonstrating this radical progressive traits once in power, has seen his nation falling apart at the seems with daily protests flooding the streets of Paris and other cities. Meanwhile, the President is enjoying strong polling numbers and an incredible economy in the United States.

Was the tree’s death a harbinger of the floundering relationship between France and America? Perhaps. As long as Macron retains his globalist credentials, it’s hard to imagine him relating to President Trump at all.
