We should stock up on all the supplies we can get and buy a lot of guns to protect ourselves. That's what Christians should do. I read it on the internet.

I have bought in bulk for years. Hate shopping. Hate running out of stuff. So I have no problem in cases of emergency.

Yes, Joseph did, but he was interpreting a dream God specifically gave Pharoah. Most people who hoard these days do so from panick-buying, not well thought-out survival plans. When a pandemic strikes and looks to last a few months, you buy a few months of toilet paper. Buying five years worth as if preparing for a Zombie Acpocalypse is absurd.

In 2001, I planned a cross-country trip. On 9/10, I decided to purchase my tickets the next day. The evening of 9/11 I booked a ticket two weeks in advance (as was my plan all along), because despite the chaos the country was going through, I was confident that normalcy would prevail and air traffic would resume to normal by that time - and I was correct.

Didnt Joseph put away 7 years of food for the 7 years of lean times?

Only if you stock up for the purpose of helping your neighbor if dodo hits the fan. To have a stockpile and watching your neighbor's starving, ...well, will only come out if face to face with that scenario . Just saying you will means nothing. Let's see if those who stockpile give their last can of peas to another making the ultimate sacrifice. I'll venture to say the majority of so called Christians would not. A rare few will.

The Bible says we are not to live in fear, and that perfect love casts out fear. Yes, it's important to be prepared, not one should not panic and go crazy.

Those who panic-buy enough toilet paper to last for 5 years are obviously living in fear. Disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker is selling "survival buckets" of food to survive through difficult times. Instead of relying on God, we're supposed to rely on Bakker? Jesus won't save us, but Jim will? I mean, really? What Christians would fall for that?
