I don't believe we would be denying family members. Your bible quote is referring to salvation and people denying Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It has nothing to do with survival. One can share what they have, but many people live in different cities and states from family members. Condemnation comes from Satan. For one to play the guilt and condemn card is not wisdom from God. People love to take scripture out of context which destroys the true meaning of the Bible. On a good note, I haven't heard anyone mention anything about basic medical supplies. If one is going to survive, the slightest cut or infection can bring on death if not tended to. Bandages, antisecptics, aspirin, bug sprays, etc. I saw a feature on the History Channel and surmised at the end the most important things are water, medical supplies and food; in that order. People will head out of the cities to search for these things. Storage doesn't mean safety. There will also be looting, rioting, renegades with guns. No gas. No power. One can only do so much. The best thing is to get right and ready to meet your Maker; just in case. Fear of death is simply not knowing if you're going up or down. Know what I mean?

Does anyone have a recommendation on a water filter that will provide desalinization? Preferably something that will work with pump action. We are surrounded by water lots and lots of water. "Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink" In a SHTF situation water will mean life or death here. There are 3-4 water sources here
1. Rain-forest- not a viable for us
2. Rivers- polluted from runoff
3. Rain collection-cisterns
4. Water from public supply created from desalinization

*we have access to a rather large swimming pool but that water will only last so long as it is a shared source

So I need to do something after our 2-3 week reserve is gone as these are unreliable after the SHTF

Not sure but have you tried here:

www.catpumps.com...

Our complete line of 316SS and Duplex SS desalination pumps offer corrosion-resistance, strength and long life in the desalting process of pumping sea water under high pressure. We have many desalination pumps operating in all locations around the world in systems on large ships, offshore platforms, island support and mobile units for remote locations helping to provide affordable fresh water.


Might be worth a look.

Peace

And that is it in a nutshell.

Better safe than sorry. For those that don't at least prepare something ahead of time, these are the ones I do feel sorry for.

Thanx

I haven't done a thing.

Nothing at all. Why?

i'm an eagle scout.. I can make fire from friction and a tower to sleep in with tree limbs and hemp/grass/root ropes.

food? easy, there are alllll sorts of traps the native americans used to catch birds, fish, and small animals.

If I had a knife, I could start a small town.

but yea, better to be safe than sorry. not to mention the scout motto "be prepared"

LOL @ me?

I don't worry about preparing for that kind of stuff, simply because we aren't supposed to worry about it. The same God who supplied over 600,000 people with enough food and water every day for 40 years in the middle of a barren desert will have no problem supplying enough food and water for those who truly love Him when things get bad.

Isaiah 33:15-16(KJV)
15He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
16He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

1 John 4:4(KJV)
4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

I believe survivalists are nutjobs, no similar to the Camping followers.
Theyre usually christian gun nuts with a paranoid streak in them.

Seeing quotes about religion just proves it.

Id rather live my life to the full than be worried about the world going to pot all the time.

Humans die.
That's the facts and it doesn' tmatter to me how I go out. All I know is that I'm going to die and no amount of Survival Preparations is going to stop that.I don't understand why some people don't want to die before a certain age or care how they go out.


Death is death.

Good...guess that means IF we come to a breakdown in society as we know it, and you are starving, and somehow end up on my doorstep begging for food and water, I can shut my door in your face with a clear conscience.

Meaning, what IF you don't die a quick painless death....will you off yourself? OR, depend on the kindness of those who did prepare for a "just in case" event.

Which is to say that all those that died from most natural destructions and other apocalypses did not love Him enough. Yeah right.

I have made preparations but not as much as I wish. I have yet to put together my friend's BOB. Shes aware (now) that the world is going down but she doesn't have much information about what to do besides our plans.

I should put together that BOB now.

I have not done anything..for me SHTF same as..

..driving a car everyday with sand bags on steel bumpers with shock absorbers, reinforced titanium hood and fence around my car because i'm afraid someone might crash into me on the road.

I ll try to survive if/when the events happens, if i die, i die. I don't want to live a world that's already wiped out and without resources to sustain the population.

If a nuclear missile is coming toward my city, i will run toward the centre of the explosion and die then to live a life with radiation poison and die a slow death..

Wow there has been so much to read here...I wonder where all the people who have bob's are going? I lived in the islands for years and one learns to sip(shelter in place) you know the area and the people.I would think if you show up somewhere you will be seen as a outsider and that in itself could be a problem.I am as prepared as time and money will allow for me and my clan.I obtained the foxfire books back in the 70's still good reading and it is always good to have maps of the local and state area,learned that after a few hurrricanes...seen some good ideas on here but guess it comes down to what you believe you need to do...

Yup, a lot of pages and good info here.

I always tell people that a little BOB wouldn't hurt to have around but not having at least a few basics could spell disaster.

Peace!

i'm with you jude! i can't understand why anyone would not be making plans right now? with everything going on in the world right now, you would think that people would be gearing up to save themselves! guess they're waiting on the governments to take care of them.

I am not preparing. Firstly because I am on a Gang stalking list for life. 7 years has been enough for me and I have been praying for death for a while but don't want to cheat. So I would be happy if a disaster killed me. I would call it divine intervention.



Secondly I am from New Zealand- North Island and I don't think anything will happen here in any case.

I'm not preparing because most of you guys are paranoid whack jobs.

Even the intelligent ones sometimes astound me with their ability to believe in nonsense.

Anyways, at this point, it is reasonable to think the US market and country itself may collapse, but from judging by the history books, there will not be 300 million starving or dead Americans like everyone here seems to perpetuate.


If i lived in the middle of new york , yeah i would have a bail out plan. but i live in the middle of canada and there is so much resources, food, supplies , farmers, all that stuff. I really believe me being a fit 26 year old male would be able to survive. If you are old , feeble, or unable to go anywhere, then maybe i could agree with having 3 months worth of food in stock, or 3 months worth of needed medications. But to plan for an Apocalypse is crazy.
edit on 15-4-2011 by donkeystyle because: (no reason given)


stopped reading at canada. enough said.


yea , there are "so many resources" when the grid is working. turn off the lights, leave people alone in their homes all starving, unprepared like yourself, and see how everything turns out. im sure youll all sit quietly and wrap yourselves in neat blankets for orderly disposal right?
