Follower, you say I don't understand, but it's you who don't understand. You are wrong on Luke 12, and wrong on Matt. 25:1-13). You say,
"the parable about the oil is not for "listeners" as you suggest seeing the Lord Jesus spoke in parables to hide the meaning"
The parable is for listeners, those who can spiritually hear. Jesus hides the meaning to those who cannot hear so they will not understand. The parable is speaking about been prepared. The parable of the 10 Virgins is given to underscore the importance of being ready for Christ return in any event even if He delay's longer than expected. For when He does return, there will be no second chances for the unprepared (v.11,12).
Why do you not understand?
---Mark_V. on 3/14/13


I was not suggesting that "oil" here necessarily represents "food", rather "things we need, and would be at an extreme disadvantage without" - whether it be spiritual (anointing, wisdom, truth, etc.) or material (lamp oil, food, water, gasoline, etc.)

If Jesus told the parable today, he might have mentioned women who did not have enough gas to drive to the wedding, and had to try to find a gas station open at midnight. In any case, the application would have been the same - that, in all cases, we are to be prepared, because we do not know what things are coming, and/or when they are coming.

I also never suggested that we kill to protect food.
---StrongAxe on 3/13/13

If you go solely on the passage you quoted (or Matthew 6:28-29), one would be inclined to just sit at home, pray 24/7, and do nothing else.

It was not the ONLY passage I provided!! Further, the parable about the oil is not for "listeners" as you suggest seeing the Lord Jesus spoke in parables to hide the meaning. Oil is used to annoint by the Holy Spirit, and the light of the lamp represents the light of truth. Your suggestion the oil represents food demonstrates your lack of spiritual understanding of Gods Holy Spirit, and further doomsday preppers are prepared to kill to protect their food CLEARLY not anything the Lord has EVER recommended.

You said: The Lord Jesus Christ written of in Holy Scriptures did not rise on Sunday,

Luke 24 says the women went to the tomb on the first day of the week with spices, and Jesus was not there - i.e. he had been resurrected. Sunday is the first day of the week. Or perhaps you have some other passage that suggests another day? If so, I'd love to see it.

He died on Sabbath eve, but Judaism has two kids of sabbaths - the weekly one (Saturday), and special holidays on which no work may be performed (e.g. Passover), that may occur on any day of the week.
---StrongAxe on 3/12/13

Follower, there is a big difference between the words you interpret and the real meaning of the Word of God. The passage in (Luke 12:29-31) is not suggesting for people to not seek food to eat

mark is english your native language? I have to ask because it appears (through my own and dozens of others responses) that you are either not comprehending what is written or you are distorting it to point of purposely causing strife, since you do this with countless posts and with multiple posters consistently changing their words and rewriting what they have written.

I never wrote the passage in Luke had anything to do with food, and AGAIN you clearly did not read previous scripture I shared
---Follower_of_Christ on 3/12/13

Follower, there is a big difference between the words you interpret and the real meaning of the Word of God. The passage in (Luke 12:29-31) is not suggesting for people to not seek food to eat. That is nonesense. If they did that they would die, and we would not have anyone alive today. It is in reference as to what we should seek first, "seek the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added to you".
That is a far cry from what you said. You pick and choose without the context. Very good trick. Cults do it all the time. But I do agree on one thing you have said out of hundreds and I will tell you on that blog. But here, you are so far off. Why don't you just stop seeking food to eat, see what happens.
---Mark_V. on 3/12/13


If you go solely on the passage you quoted (or Matthew 6:28-29), one would be inclined to just sit at home, pray 24/7, and do nothing else.

Yet, that's not the whole picture: 2 Thessalonians 3:10:
"For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat."

There's an old saying about people who are "so heavenly minded that they're no earthly good". There's a similar Chinese proverb: "Man wait long time with open mouth waiting for roast goose to fly in". We ALSO need to be good stewards of our earthly things - that's why we're born here instead of in heaven directly.
---StrongAxe on 3/11/13

Follower, your answer to Strongaxe was very weak and Luke 12:29-31) did not support your view

my view? not at all, it is Gods Word I'm simply restating what is there. Luke 12:29-31 supports what I have previously shared from holy scripture, it would benefit you to read Gods Word as I shared before you jump to wrong conclusions.

there is a big difference between the word by men and the Word of God
---Follower_of_Christ on 3/10/13


The parable uses concrete images that listeners could understand - i.e. having material goods (in this case, lamp oil), because otherwise one might be caught unprepared.

The same principle often applies in real life. When you drive your car, do you fill up your tank, or do you keep the needle near "E" all the time and risk running out of gas, and being forced to walk several miles with a can? Do you buy exeactly what groceries you need each week, or do you have a pantry, in case of unexpected guests, or other circumstances?

Jesus always told his followers to be prepared, as one never knew what to expect. He told them to buy a sword but I doubt he had anyone specific he wanted them to kill.
---StrongAxe on 3/6/13

Follower, your answer to Strongaxe was very weak and Luke 12:29-31) did not support your view at all. In fact it says that the Lord knows what you need, but to first seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. Now God can do the impossible and out of dust make material supplies for you, but He also can provide the access to those supplies if you seek the Kingdom of God first. That should be your priority. I believe a little reading into the context will provide the answer for you.
---Mark_V. on 3/4/13

strongaxe the parable is about the Holy Spirit represented by the oil, the oil does not represent food, supplies, or any worldly material thing

as for reasonable preparedness I guess we can agree to disagree, as I already stated those who turn their homes, or portions of their homes into mass food and supply storage will not be able to protect their hoarded supplies from the frenzied masses of people without. The masses will surely beat down and win over a small family protecting months of food. Either way doomsday preppers are prepared to kill to protect which clearly goes against Luke 12:29-31
---Follower_of_Christ on 3/3/13


Jues because one's neighbors are foolish and unprepared, is it futile to be prepared oneself? In the parable of the midnight wedding, Jesus didn't say the foolish virgins mugged the wise ones for oil.


You said: Please, for your own sake, don't highlight your ignorance by trying to equate liberalism to conservatism. That's just... well... ignorant.

Jesus said "do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

It is pure hypocrisy to call other people's beliefs a mental illness, but then express outrage when they turn the tables and do exactly the same thing to you, just to show how silly such a comment is.
---StrongAxe on 2/27/13

There is nothing in the Bible restricting believers not to be ready for any problems that might arise. In fact it is very smart to be prepared. Be ready for any disaster, any uprising, and be ready most of all for the Coming of the Lord. It might happen in our life time. No one knows the time.
---Mark_V. on 2/27/13

Pathological obsession with hoarding may be a mental illness, but reasonable preparation is not.

absolutely!! however, reasonable preparation is not same as having food stored under your bed or essentially when your home (in of itself) is one big storage facility for the big ***if***

the masses will overrun a small family attempting to protect their supplies, sure the family may be able to "rambo" for a few days and kill some people to save their precious supplies, yet in the end all their hard work will be for nothing, they will die protecting their hoarded supplies and the frenzied ARMED masses will overrun them and take everything, small groups of armed people don't stand a chance against desperate masses

You said: hoarding is an obsession, doomsdaypreppers have a mental illness obsessed with **if** and essentially they will die protecting their hoarded supplies

Pathological obsession with hoarding may be a mental illness, but reasonable preparation is not. Joseph was prepared. Jesus warned of the foolish bridesmaids who weren't prepared and had to buy oil at night. Also, near the end, he told his followers to sell spare cloaks and buy swords - surely a form of preparedness that does not rely on "God will supply all your needs".

The Doomsday Preppers may seem extreme but I've been in a situation where I had to be prepared. During the Cuban Crisis the people in our town were ordered to load two weeks worth of food,clothing,water,and whatever we would need to be ready to evacuate at a moments notice. We were only a few miles to an Army Post and worse yet a little bit further was an Atomic Stockpile. If war had started we would certainly have been a target. Its very frightening. I know it is important to be prepared for emergencies no matter what people think of it. You also have to be prepared to guard what you stored against theft by those who didn't.

Well said, I was just having a discussion trying to make things interesting and they did. I hope and pray we never have to use arms agianst someone. And wish you all the best. There are bad people out there. I had one at my door four years ago. And yes I did have a weapon to detour the situation. And it did I nerver had to fire a shoot or show the person I had a weapon behind my back.It was my neighbor he was ready to kill me I was able to pray with him and he is now a christian. Just think if I had shoot him.
---Mike on 2/23/13

Mike, I did not say I am eager to kill. I said I would kill in order to protect my family without question if it came down to that. Big difference. The last thing I want to do is take a life, but if someone is trying to kill my children in order to take their food and it comes down to my children's life or their life, yes I will kill that person.

And I already clarified that I would gladly lay down my life for my neighbors and give my portion to them. But I am not willing to sacrifice my children's life for theirs. It is not my right to sacrifice someone else's life for another's. And quite frankly, you don't have the right to not defend your family.
---Jed on 2/23/13


There is a big difference between hoarding (which is a psychological disease that causes people to keep EVERYTHING "just in case it might someday be useful"), and disaster preparedeness (which is a matter of good stewardships - where people collect those SPECIFIC things they need to survive through a disaster).

Note that the latter was specifically commanded by Joseph to the Pharoah of Egypt - i.e. to store up grain during 7 years of plenty, in order to survive 7 years of famine.

What the real problem with all this Doomsday preppers at least most that I have talked to is heighten state of hypervigilance. When that occurs it can be a real problem.

It appears those who prepare for doomsday are actually hoarders, hoarding everything from supplies, guns and amo, and especially food. Hoarding is a mental illness and most who have this justify their actions without understanding the true motive of their obsession. And through this disguise of hoarding for doomsday believing they can defend themselves against the masses and the government too. The underlying theme for those preparing for doomsday is lack of the Lord in their lives. Most doomsday preppers are one-man, or one-family shows leaving them really preparing for the masses that will invade and take all they worked so diligently for.
---Follower_of_Christ on 2/23/13

Jed: The comment that you would fight people if you are attacked for your food sounds OK, but it can become a dangerous because in cases of emergency many people say that everyone who appears suspicious may be shot at 'because he may kill me'

I'm not saying you would do that, but I have lived in places where there have been riots and loss of law and order, and self-defense may just turn to general violence too quickly.

The proper idea is to limit one's use of self defense, and even more so the defense of one's food, to cases where one's life is obviously directly threatened.

Of course the 'directly' may mean you die of hunger later, but the alternative is you may kill someone where there was not good reason
---Peter on 2/22/13

I said if my family goes with less not without. And bye all means I would try to have a peaceful resolution. And not result in a killing The thought that you would so eagerly kill. Leads me to believe you would be that guy knocking at my door for food when your is out. I hope we don't come to the point of killing for food. If you look at apostles and early martyrs. They were willing to lay down there live's for the Lord are you willing to do that??
---Mike on 2/22/13

Mike, I think you are getting off topic. The question was about preparing for disaster in order to protect yourself or your family. No one ever suggested killing your neighbors for food or killing them so they won't take your food. Now if they are attacking you for it then that is a different story. Then you are not killing them for food, you are killing them because they attacked you. See the difference? But telling people it's no use to prepare simply because you can't feed everybody, and therefore would have to protect it, makes no sense at all. That way, everybody starves. Mike, I'm sure you're family appreciates the fact you hold them at the same level of importance as your neighbors!
---Jed on 2/22/13

I can with all honesty I wouldn't
---Mike on 2/21/13

Mike: The view that you would not shoot someone for food is of course Christian.

But would you shoot someone to feed someone ELSE?
---Peter on 2/21/13

Mike, I guess that's where you and I differ. I would not take food away from my wife and children to give it to a neighbor, period. If I had more than enough for them then I would help the neighbor. My first responsibility is to my family, not the guy down the street, and especially not the guy trying to break into my house and kill my family for food. And I would not think twice about hurting someone, up to and including killing them if need be, in order to protect my family. If you have to hurt someone else in order to defend yourself or your family, then they have left you no choice, and quite frankly, they have asked for it. They were trying to do it to you first.

All throughout the bible prophets have warned the people of coming disasters and the people prepared for it - God telling Joeeph to store grain for seven good years to prepare for the seven bad years, God telling Noah to build an ark, etc.

God has warned us about what is to befall mankind during the end days so that we may prepare spiritually and physically - so pray that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day.
---Steveng on 2/21/13

Jed,You missed my main point. The food is God's not mine to hoard. I would do what ever I could to help others. And if that means my family goes with less I hope I would do it. As to useing weapons I would never shoot someone for food. Scary thought that you might have to do that. I just don't think I could. Jed have you ever had to hurt someone to protect yourself? It's never a good feeling you would always wonder if you could have done it different.
---Mike on 2/21/13

Mike, I'm having a hard time understanding what you're trying to say because you're contradicting yourself. First you say how wrong it is to store food because if you store food that means you will have to defend the food. Then you tell me how you yourself have your own stockpile of food and weapons and are trained to defend yourself? Huh?
---Jed on 2/21/13

Jed, I do have four kids a wife and grand children. And if and when I have to defend my family I am trained to do so. I am very well prepared more then most. God showed Joeeph to store grain for seven good years. Manna rained and Jesus said take no thought for tomorrow. There within lies the problem If God telling you to store food that is great. If not are your wasting your time when you could be doing more productive things then to worry about the future. Be ready to peach the gospel in and out of season 2 Timothy 4v2 if I am here when it gets bad that would be the reason for me being is to preach. Not to kill and not hoard my food to give it freely as God has given isn't it Gods food anyway?

Mike, You're talking like it's just between you and the neighbor and I totally get what you are saying if all you have is just yourself to look out for. But when you have children to provide for and protect, that changes things. If it was just me vs. the neighbor, I'd gladly starve for my neighbor. But I am not willing that my wife and children should starve for the neighbor. And I would not use a weapon on my neighbor just for wanting food. But if he is willing to break into my house and attack and kill my family for it then I am willing to kill him to protect them. But suggesting that you do nothing to prepare helps neither you, your family, nor the neighbor.
---Jed on 2/20/13

Jed, What would Jesus do in that situation? I believe in the second right amendment strongly. And I do have a reserve. And yes I would defend my family. However if it was for food I would gladly give it away. Wasn't it Moses and the tribe Israels that God feed manna?
---Mike on 2/20/13

Jed, Also I still believe we have to rely on God. If the world comes to that in my life time. I would rather be home with the Lord. I think the show PREPPERS is getting poeple away from trusting God for there every need.If the show wasn't there u wouldn't be a PREPPER....
---Mike on 2/20/13

Mike, it's not about saving your own life. It's about taking care of your family. If it comes between my children starving or my neighbor starving, then my neighbor is going to have to starve. And if that neighbor attempts to break into my house and attack me or my family in order to feed himself, then he is going to die. It's sad that we would have to make those tough choices. But I'm not going to put my neighbor before my wife and children.

We could look at dooms dayers in two different ways. Either they are listening to God or they are listening the own thoughts. My personal view is this. If you are prepared with food you better have lots of gun to fight for it. And be willing to kill for a dinner that your neighbor who is starving? Which brings me to my point if your neighbor should ask you for food would kill to save your life?Jesus said if you deny your life you will find it but you love your life you will lose it. Take no thought for tomorrow didn't Jesus say that?? I might change my thoughts latter. But I do know this Jesus is my bread of life

Mark 8:35
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it.

That is the gospel opinion. Matthew 16:25, Mark 8:35, and Luke 9:24.

Matthew 10:28
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Revelation 12:11
They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

Matthew 7:24-7 speaks of a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, yet it did not fall. A foolish man who built his house on sand. Rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash. This is like the story of the three little pigs. Similarily, Luke 6:48-9 A man building a house, dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.

Well we know that actions surely speak louder than words! And that a tree is known by it's fruit! But I do not think Obama is a muslim. You have to believe in God to be a muslim. Obama used to be a muslim until he came to despise religion altogether. He is like many liberals I know, who claim to be Christians like it's a status, but when it really comes down to living their faith, God always takes a back burner to secular humanism, because they don't truly believe it is reality. If Obama did however actually believe in God, we could say based upon his fruit that he is a Muslim, since he is most hostile toward Christians and Jews and shows preference to Muslims.

Cluny, I believe you've done the best planning possible if you're leaving your future & welfare up to God. That's what the guy's did in Daniel 3 & look how well they came through.(vs 27):-) Do the best you possible can for yourself & leave it up to God.

Jesus says, "be ready," in Matthew 24:44. If you get ready for something, you get what you will be needing, ahead of time. In the resurrection of the righteous we will be needing "the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (in 1 Peter 3:4) And we need to be loving each other the way Jesus loves us, so we are ready for this in the resurrection of the righteous. "And we will be submitting to Him, at every moment." So, now we need to get into submitting to our Groom all the time > Colossians 3:15 > so we are ready for this.

shira, I think "doomsday" is being used in a metaphorical sense here for major catastrophe whether natural or man-made, such as enemy invasion, complete breakdown of law and order, and the like.

Since I'm on a fixed income and don't have a car, there's no sense in my preparing to bug out, as they call it. I have to leave my future and welfare in God's hands.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I don't worry about it because I won't be here! I'll be with Jesus! Hallelujah!

any christian knows there is no such thing. God is the only one that knows when the world will end. man thinks he is smarter than a Holy God. I'm not worried one bit about the end of the world except some of my family aren't saved. these people who think they are so smart with their predictions are so stupid sounding. they are not God. my son in law brags about not going to church and he does not want any part of salvation. even his dad is suppose to be a preacher...excuse me, he is a minister. he lives an ungodly life with no thanks ever. I honestly feel my heart ache to watch someone who thinks they are so intelligent and yet so stupid. it does not take a masters degree to be saved and understand the bible.

Where are they playing? Is it a rock group? The Doomsday Preppers". Sounds like Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their ok, not my cup of tea.

They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity. Ezk 7:19

If you are a "prepper" preparing to give it all away, you'll survive. If not, cankerworm look out!
