I’m in between churches right now. This last week, we visited a church that my wife and I used to go to when we were first married. It’s a big church and has a lot of people that attend, although it looks like not as much as when we used to attend.
The pastor started his sermon last week with the question, “So are you ready for the end of the world?” Of course, my ears perked up because I haven’t heard any pastor, in a church that I have attended, preach, discuss or talk about end time issues lately.
Of course, I quickly realized he was being sarcastic and sat there while he poked fun of some of the things that you read about on the internet, mainly the blood moons and the Hadron Collider. I can deal with the sarcasm. I have seen many “scary” things come and go in the preparedness community. I mean by now, the world should of ended about a dozen different times. My problem was with the way he treated preparedness.
Again, sarcastically. he said (I’m paraphrasing) go ahead and buy food and find a cave, but when nothing happens, give it away and go preach the Gospel. If you’ve read or watched any of my videos, you know that I’m about the Gospel, but I didn’t like the way he didn’t take preparedness seriously. Anyway, when I got home, I made the video directly below.
I’m also including two other videos. Altogether, all of these would require a long sit down. I listen to videos when I’m in my truck going to work.
The video of JD Farag from Sept. 6 deals with the same subject as this other preacher, but with a sharp contrast as to the meaning and background behind it. I am also linking to Fellowship Bible Church’s sermon from last Sunday. I don’t agree with everything the pastor says, he deals with some of the craziness of the month of September, but doesn’t suggest that preparedness is a waste. Just like everything, Christians should temper everything with the standard of God’s Word and the leading of the Holy Spirit!
Here are the three videos. Let me know what you think below in the comments…
