As posted before, It's wise to have your IMMEDIATE NEEDS provided for. Food, Water, Shelter, etc. But, there's a reason that we don't barter
today. It's not NEARLY efficient enough. If your neighbor stocked up on food, but has a service that you can use (manpower), he's less likely to
accept food. Something universally and historically recognized would be equally desired. Gold and silver meets that purpose.
As for biblical prophecy, (while I am a believer in the bible, and it's prophecy) there has not been a generation on Earth in the last 2000 years
that did not believe that they lived in the "end times". And if "THAT" SHTF, only righteousness can protect you. Not stockpiles of food, water,
and a nice bugout bag.
