Ok most of us have a FB, so as we chat, post or play all those lovely games ( I so guilty of gaming lol)
we encounter/meet ALL kinds of ppl from all kinds of walks of life with all of their posts showing up on your thread...
I often find it very interesting to read. I have a very, very Christian woman who posts every day a Bible verse, I have Wiccan's/Witches posting items as well, and of course many ppl who either are Atheists or simply don't know wither to believe in something higher or not, posting .... and I like to read it all, (or at least as much of it before they get lost in the flow of the boards)
So this little bit came as a bit of a surprise to me. That it's only NON-Christian ppl who prepare for the world to end, or are Preppers or keep an emergency kit in their home etc..etc..etc.. bc without faith in God you are lost and for those who are firm in their Christianity do not need mundane items for survival bc God will protect them from all harm.
Now I did not reply to this person's post (there were a few who did tho)(and I don't know this person) so instead I thought I would bring it to this board and get all of your opinions about that statement.
Now my personal viewpoint is that there are many different types of ppl who are prepared for emergencies wither they are the extreme preppers or simply keeping what is needed to get by stored and religious viewpoint has nothing to do with it, it's called common sense.
I have the basics in an emergency stashed and am getting a new medical first aid kit in my home and we are a mixed up religious family here...lol... A Witchy-Wiccan with a Non practicing Christian and a kid who doesn't have any religious affiliation right now...
Thoughts!? On this Ladies...
Are any of the CM moms similar to or real close to the same beliefs as this statement?
How do everyone else prepare? Are you extreme (I have an extreme prepper in the family) or have the basics?
Watched an episode of Preppers the other night and the group was VERY religious. Whoever made that statement is very ignorant and they really need to watch Doomsday Preppers. Preppers are from all economic and religious groups.
Hubby keeps saying that we need to start ... not for the end of the world, but real natural emergencies such as hurricanes or severe thunderstorms that take out the power and on a super unlikely chance, a blizzard. We definitely need to make a plan considering his mom and sister both are O2 when they sleep (CPAP + O2) ... mom, all the time.
