Preppers and Christians: should we prepare?

If you’ve noticed the vast number of websites, blogs, articles and news stories (even a television show), about the topic of “preppers,” today’s program will explain what this phenomenon is all about. Preparing for uncertainties in the future is something many people around the world are doing, as concerns over how to survive without food, water or electricity becomes an increasing concern. Certainly those who did prepare for Hurricane Sandy were able to help those who did not or could not prepare. What is our responsibility as Christians to help our neighbor during disasters or during an economic collapse? What does God’s Word have to say about preppers?

Joining us for today’s discussion is Nancy Lemay and Patrice Lewis. Patrice is a prepper, a blogger and author of the devotional, The Simplicity Primer: 365 ideas for making life more livable. Check out her news articles on World Net Daily and her Blog, Rural Revolution.

    I think Christians and non Christians a like should all prepare for tough times ahead. The recent hurricanes back east have made a lot of people realize the importance of having some type of survival kit and food storage preparation. Everyone should prepare for their own family and not rely on the government to take care of them.

      I agree. I am not living in fear or hoarding, but I do buy extra when I shop these days. If something is on sale, I stock up on it, especially canned goods which can keep up to 5 years beyond the date stamp. I have a pantry of selves in my basement where I put the extra things…also paper products, and bottled water. I arrange things so the latest dated items are in the back and the older ones in the front. You can get help on how long certain foods will keep by visiting a website called We had a dry run to so speak here with the threat of Sandy. We had warning and time to prepare…stocking up on extra food, batteries, water, flashlights, etc. The storm hit east of us, but it was a good exercise in disaster preparedness.

    Have to admit that I've been getting more and more concerned about the Earth getting struck by an asteroid like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

    I've been stocking up on water and cheap beer and keeping a store of Horrid Henry books to keep my son occupied if the worst happens. I'm now starting to build up my stockpile of canned food and morning-after pills for my wife.

    God most definitely wants you to prepare. Both for yourself and your family and loved ones. There solid, undeniable scriptural proof of this. Before you think Christians should not prep, I suggest you read this very convincing book.

    You are responsible for your family and loved ones. I suspect that most people who claim to be trusting God are actually trusting Wal-Mart, the government, welfare, social security, and their bank account.
