The whole prepping movement has started to really gain some steam this year. Surprisenly enough, I have yet to hear that the Mayan prophecy of 2012 is a reason why so many are now storing up food, water, and ammunition. For most, they fear society's breakdown. (I only mention the false Mayan prophecy simply because I did expect a lot of folks to be nervous over that who have no faith)
It occurs to me that this may be what fits the sign of men's hearts failing them from fear. I always assumed that this would be because we would be in a massive war or in a chaotic society. But the absolute fear of what may come is probably more intense than knowing exactly what is happening at that second.
Throughout the entire Bible, we are instructed to fear not many times. And yet, I think there are quite a few Christians out there that are prepping and forgetting this....what do you think?
