Doomsday?

One of my family members recently mentioned the term “doomsday preppers” and it got me thinking.

I know what a “prepper” is.  It’s someone who keeps 50 gallon drums of potable water, a year’s supply of canned goods, etc, etc, just in case our society collapses.  I know she was referring to that type of doomsday.

But traditionally, there is another definition of doomsday, and that is the last day of the earth, when the earth is destroyed.  The only people that will be prepared for that doomsday are born-again Christians (a redundant term, but one I find is necessary).   You see, when God destroys the earth and judges all of mankind throughout history, the only people prepared for this are the people who have trusted in Christ as Savior (including me).  Everybody else is sent to the lake of fire.

So, in that sense,  I guess I’m a doomsday prepper.  😉
