Are you not including Mormons as "Christians"? :lolsmash:ANTS!
Poor folks prep too because we know there is always a chance of hard times.... there are also lots of Christians that prep.
I didnt say it, you did. But, now that you mention it they, dont believe Christ is God... which He Himself claimed... so how can they be followers of Christ if they refute his claims?Are you not including Mormons as "Christians"? :lolsmash:
I have to wonder how many Mormons actually prep; Nearly every Mormon I have ever met has been very . . . selective, perhaps? . . . in the rules that that they choose to follow. If I had a dollar for every alcoholic, cheating, sex-crazed Mormon I've ever met.... well, I'd have at least enough to buy a burger and fries.
:2thumb: Well said Ant. All religion does is condemn. True Christianity is a relationship with God because of the sacrifice of our Savior. While religion condemns Christianity sets you free from condemnation. Side note: I watched a documentary called The Case for Christ on netflix last night and it was very good. I highly recommend it.... because Mormonism is a religion and to many Christians Christianity is a religion also. We are all sinners.
Thanks for the information ... sorry for my last post. I replied to it before reading your request for no more faith-based responses.Followers of Christ can mean many things, as far as who anyone thinks he is, but let's keep religion to the religion section of the forum.
Whether the Mormons follow their church teachings of prepping or not, it is their official advice/position. Other goups, in my experience, are the local 7th Day Adventists, but I'm not sure they do that as a whole, a religion. The First Church of God in our area is very into prepping and teaches prep-related things.
Non-religion/spiritual prep and survival groups are in our area, and some of them teach at a lot of the prep-related events here. That catagory breaks down into the political and non-political. Then you have the MAGs (Mutual Aid Groups) that form from a variety of backgrounds. Some are work-related, some are neighborhood, some are just friends who find each other such as by meeting by chance at prep/survival supply stores.
As for who is most famously known for teaching/advocating prepping, probably the Mormons. No more personal opinions, descriptions, summaries, or other comments regarding religion or religious beliefs on this thread, please.
