1. Great post Mark.

    I’ve been surprised how the zombie craze keeps resurrecting itself. If there was a zombie apocalypse, I’d be one of the first people to die since I have no intention of fighting a bunch of dead people and I have no survival skills whatsoever. When the AC  broke at work, I thought it was the end of civilization as we know it. That was barbaric. How would I be able to handle the AC repairman coming at me wanting to eat my brains?

    But with everything going on, I can see the subtle shift of people wanting a clean slate to get rid of the bad element. It calls to the human understanding that things just can’t continue the way they are. Something’s gotta give. Thankfully, the Lord will take care of that in His good time.

    • I’m not a survivalist either, found that out when derecho ripped through my city. Being displaced is not fun at all. The power was off for days in many areas, there was no gas and if there were, we had to pay with cash. Our usually quiet city was going down fast and probably would have reverted to anarchy if the power hadn’t turned back on. Shows how fast a civilization can fall if given the right kind of wrong soup.

    It’s interesting that some people want a catastrophe to clean the slate of all the negative things in our world, but that the ‘clean slate’ they want would probably be worse than what they are going through now.

      The things happening over in the Middle East and Africa (tribal factions, arbitrary law, mass displacement and migration, refugee crises, “clean” countries rejecting the possibly infected, etc.) would be the likely result, not macho gung-ho brotherhood like in our entertainment.

    One of the things that I have read in Relevation is that those that have been raptured with Christ will witness Christ coming back with his angels and I personally can’t imagine wanting to witness that type of carnage.  Maybe it is me, but I get really “not wanting to be around” judgement type scenarios mine or any one else.

    I’ve never really been a fan of zombies. About the only good thing that I can say about them is that unlike vampires and werewolves, people tend to realize  that they’re bad guys and not romantic interests.

    Plus, I would be so dead in that event.  I am sluggish and slow due to allergies anyway, I could never keep moving long enough.

What do you think?
