I am a christian and I try to prep. I store food water and other supplies, because I believe God warned me to. I believe God is warning all of us and that is why we are here on this site and why we feel the urge to store food. but I am very frustrated in trying to convince other christian friends of mine. I come up against this brick wall of belief that they think if they store food it means they arent trusting God to take care of them. No matter what I say to my friends they dont get it. yesterday a friend said to me, when I suggested she begin putting food in store, "are you going to feed me when the famine comes?" I knew that her question was deliberately to suggest that I was being selfish taking care of myself and to be a "good christian" I should be willing to feed her and anyone else who is hungry at that time. This is the attitude i come up against every time with these friends. I said to her "I will feed anyone God tells me to feed". I didnt tell her, it likely wont be you, since I have tried and tried to warn you and you have refused to listen. I will NOT feed her in famine. She has been warned again and again. How can we break through this thinking that storing food means we dont trust God? I dont put my trust in food, my trust is in God. but if God is warning us famine is coming, surely He doesnt have to spell it out to us to GET FOOD STORED! Now I have friends who know i have food, who arent storing food for themselves, and who flat out state that they are coming to my house when SHTF. they think it wont happen, they think they are joking around and that its funny. But when that time comes, and IT IS COMING, they are going to show up here wanting food. and I am not giving it to them. God is saying Hurry UP! I have warned and warned, HURRY UP! there are many who are unable to store up food. I understand that and so does God. But most people can put away oatmeal and rice and some canned veggies. anyway I am ranting now, frustrated and wanting to convince them and unable to do so.
