Default Slight "Deleted Thread" rant



Advertise Here

What is with people deleting threads when others "get mean" and they decide to leave the Boards? I mean, some of us might actually be interested in the topic. If you get butt-hurt about others, just leave the thread. Try another one. Sheesh.

Rant over, I guess. On to the reason for this thread

So, a new member, David-something (I am sorry, I don't recall the full name off-hand) started a thread about preparing for the Great Tribulation and how those whom will not take the "Mark" will not be able to do business of any sort.

I asked him how he was planning to get through those times if they come to be. It is my understanding this Tribulation lasts for 7 years.

Question for those whom do believe in this Tribulation:

(If you do not believe in the Great Tribulation, please do try to behave yourself. I really am interested in an answer(s) to my question.)

How do plan to get through this time? Are you going to hide out? Try to "fly below the radar"? Can you realistically store seven years worth of supplies until the Christ comes down and makes everything right?

I do not believe in the Tribulation, BUT! I am serious; I really am interested in what your plans/thoughts are for this. Part of me thinks: it would just be easier to "poof", be taken up, you know? Or, just flat out get in the face of the Anti-Christ and get it over with, you would be with Christ all the sooner. Does that make sense?

So, an answer?

What makes you think he had anything to do with the thread (along with all his other crap) being removed?

Lugh MacArawn, I hear you about the thread deletion. Some of my threads have gotten deleted. Last time it happened was about a month ago when I started a thread about food sovereignty. I was not given an explanation for the deletion. The thread was just gone the day after I posted the OP. Perhaps somebody with delete power did not think the topic was relevant to prepping. If a discussion had been allowed to ensue, I think everybody would have realized the topic was indeed relevant.

I just assumed he got his "feel bads" hurt, deleted the thread and left the Boards.

Not the case?

If the great Tribulation happens with Satan at the helm how would anyone not get marked. The only way out would be by getting killed fighting the devils forces. We all are going to die anyway and the Tribulation is to figure out if your worthy of going to heaven . Only two choices that I can see, accept Christ and die for him or accept the devil.

Great. The second time in just a couple days that we're accused of deleting a post because someone can't find their own ****. Yeah, that never gets old.

Right. That is how I think;

Or, just flat out get in the face of the Anti-Christ and get it over with, you would be with Christ all the sooner.
But, I run into enough folks who think this is going to occur, and I would think a true believer would just "poof" if it should occur, and I often wonder how they plan to deal with it as most speak as if they do not think they will "poof".

Just curious. An anticipated seven years of turmoil, how do you plan to handle it?

SHTF -> EOTWAWKI would suck.

Seven years of suck would suck.

Personally I think it would actually be longer.

A few decades to much longer (generations). That sucks...

To the believers, they do not have the choice of “poof” or not. They need to try to survive and fight the evil as best they can.

Some LDS folks we know do not believe in the use of firearms (however many of them do).

Getting some of them that do not, to come around, that in fact they are just another tool the lord has given them, is challenging...sigh...

Forget the Tribulations meme. This boils down to if you have plants to deal with a very extended disaster period.

Why it happens is a bit immaterial when the real question is how do you last that long.

Just start with the question of how can one survive for seven years?

Well, some extra canned food and a thousand extra rounds for your AR isn't going to get the job done.

You will need lasting shelter, have a way to have or make enough food, you will need a dependable water source, you will need enough security to last an extended period, you will likely need some access to power, you will need to be able repair all of the gear associated with all the prior jobs, you will need a way to ensure your medical needs and health, and you will likely need some way to distract yourself from periods of monotony and depression.

Deal with your needs, not why the problem came about.

Yes, that's the one - but I didn't post it in that section. I never post anything in that section. Somebody must have moved it there.

Sorry, MikeK, but I didn't think of looking in the General Discussion section, and I know I didn't start the thread in that section because the forum software does not allow me to post in that section, as I'm not a VIP member. Usually when a thread gets moved to a different section there is a notation stating such, but this time there was no such notation.

There are two 'general discussion' sections on the forum, one is VIP only and one is for everybody. Your thread is in the everybody one. Scroll down towards the bottom of the main page and you will see the general discussion sub forum.

As for it being moved, it's possible a mod moved it and forgot to leave a redirect. Personally if I had moved it it would be in the food section but general works too.

As JF said, it's in the regular general discussion section. In fact, it's active again and people are chatting in it. We never move anything into the VIP section because that limits it to only the VIP members. The only threads in there are the ones started in there.

That's a relief (I thought some of my twaddle could have been moved there for craps & giggles of the VIP types )

On the Tribulation question, it might help to understand that some don't believe we will be here to go through it. Our preps have to do with other forms of trouble that have been with us for hundreds and thousands of years, such as natural disasters, political and economic troubles, personal and family setbacks. etc. Those reasons alone are enough motivation to prep.

If our expectation is wrong and we go through the Trib after all, then I think most preppers will be toast, because the events of the Trib will be calamitous, and between the natural world collapsing and the political and economic systems terrorizing and murdering the population, not many will make it, even if they live underground.

Ok. If I am understanding you correctly, you only prep for "up to and until that time"? That is what I would think a believer would do. After all, if you are a believer you would "poof" and not be subjected to the actual Tribulations.

Thank you for your response.

Not all believers believe in the rapture. The tribulation is a time of trouble for Satans control over the world before the return of Christ. It will be a time of trials and terror for all alive.
The mark of the beast has been analyzed in different ways too. From you cannot buy or sell to....you cannot buy or sell legally. I can see this as an I'd card or implant for a cashless society that will be accepted at those places who accept the mark and participate. It's really not hard to see that coming. On of the Norwegian countries is experimenting with implanted money now and heck cash isn't used as often as it was 10 years ago
