    Here's the beautiful thing.
    If there is a Rapture, then our preps will be used by others. How we can prep for others is to leave a message for them. Maybe they will read it and resist until death and they'll get the opportunity to thank us in Heaven.

    I'm well trained in the arena of unarmed and armed self defense.
    I can maim and kill. I just don't want too.
    If the occasion to use my training should arise then rest assured I'll use those skills.
    F.B.I. hostage negotiations, certified sniper, instructor in revolver, semi auto pistol, shotgun,
    sub machine gun, 40 mm grenade launcher, tear gas ordinance, and more.
    Then there are the unarmed defense training schools.
    I'm retired/disabled l.e.o.
    22.5 years done in with broken back #4.
    9 months in rehab, 5 days a week, 4 hours a day. It hurts but I walk just fine!
    13 serious injuries.
    I was a white officer in a city 50% ethnic.
    Surprise, surprise.
    Hard to believe isn't it?
    NO I guess not.
    Back broken 4 X and right knee has an s.s./Teflon implant. It's o.k., I'm good.


    I've been in Hell.
    Hell is dealing with an 8 year old girl with syphilis of the throat for the 3rd time.
    Holding an old woman laying the the street while she died.
    Hit skip drunk driver.
    I arrested him the next day.
    Watching an old man remove his head with a shotgun.
    And lots more horrors.
    Hell is something different to me.
    It's an everlasting cutting off from God.
    The burning Hell taught by the Church is a lie.
    Period.
    What kind of "God" would make anyone, no matter how terrible, suffer
    for eternity?

    You're not the only one around here who has been trained, who has used that training, who has been injured, and who has witnessed suffering and death. what you and the rest of us have witnessed is nothing compared to what others are experiencing, today.
    Welcome to a fallen world, ruined by sin. Personally, you have a way to escape Hell. I think you've heard about it. God doesn't "make" you go to Hell. We have the right of free choice and thought.
    Prefer to think it a lie? Your choice.

    This thread is old, but 3 years after it started, it got added to... so why not a little bit more.

    There are only a few things I know for certain.

    Mankind isn't perfect, by design
    Deep down, most people are good
    The curves of a woman's body is one of God's best works of art
    I wonder if we should give each other the benefit of the doubt more often

    Back to the question: Yes, I think things will get worse before they get better. However, this question was first asked in 2014. And things have gotten worse. Just look back on all the natural disasters since then. Our society seems to continue to get worse. I don't know when we will hit bottom, but I hate to imagine another 10-20 years of this continuing.

    My feelings are, I can't help but to wonder if God is ashamed of what we've become. I wouldn't at all be surprised to see a Yellowstone (super volcano) event that starts world wide reaction to quakes and volcanoes letting loose a pattern of serious destruction.

    My luck... it will happen the day after I pay my annual property tax or vehicle registration.
