Byrd, you're about as wrong as anyone as I've ever seen, but I usually think that about your position, so now surprise. I am a "pre-trib", am
aware of the fact that the events of the last several decades point to this being as close to the end-times as one can imagine, yet I do not
feel that is cause for a Christian to take a hands-off approach to current events.
For the last few decades, Christians have been told that they are not to have a say-so in the ongoings of this nation, that everyone else is suppose
to run the show, elsewise its a violation of a mythological "separation of church and state". Some have even assumed such a role willingly, an act
(or lack of action) that is not biblical, and, in my opinion, lazy and cowardly.
To say that one should not be concerned with the current events, and should not do their part in civic duties is nonsense. To say, however, that one
will find peace in Christ because no matter how the end of the day turns out, you are in His hands once you accept Him, is quite another. This may be
what she meant, I don't know. But whatever the case is, understand this, Christianity is like any other walk of life, some of them are a little
unstable, and some of them are not what one would call "solid in the knowledge", and there are cults that use the Bible and pervert the word of God.
What the case is, I can't tell you, but it sounds more like a nutbag with a handful of pamphlets.
Sorry for the bad experience, though.
