if we are told in the Bible that we only have today and not to worry about tomorrow then do you think it is wrong to ask questions based on made up scenarios of possible future persecutions that may come to this country. i was thinking about this because of what people were saying in another thread and it got me thinking to. if Jesus tells us not to be troubled about wars, famines, earthquakes, ect. do you think it is wise for Christians to get so caught up in imagining what might happen some day in the future? i am not saying i doubt that Christians will face persecution i just wonder what does in really profit us in our walk with Jesus today to get so caught up in thinking about what might happen to the point that we are asking questions based on a maybe? if we are walking all the time with Jesus then shouldn't we trust that He will take care of us in the times ahead no matter what?rdg
I think there is a great difference between considering and planning for the future and obsessing over it. I do not plan on having to deal with a natural disaster in my town, yet I sometimes consider the possibility and think about how I might need to react. That is, I think, prudence. But that is a far cry from becoming obsessed with the possibility.
Worry? Unscriptural, unhealthy, and unwise. But that said, we keep our gastanks in the cars above half, important documents and a little cash in buckets easily thrown in the car, some canned food and bottled water close by. My important computer data is in an external hard drive, grab and go.We live in a fire zone, and have had to evacuate in the past, just prepared for some of the stuff crazy unbelievers might throw at us- putting our trust in God and our distrust in men.But worry? What in the world is there to worry about??
f we are told in the Bible that we only have today and not to worry about tomorrow then do you think it is wrong to ask questions based on made up scenarios of possible future persecutions that may come to this country.
