Michael Snyder from the “Economic Collapse” blog recently wrote a very interesting article regarding the economy in which he stated, “I am not afraid of an economic collapse.” Coming from someone that runs “The Economic Collapse Blog”, I am sure that sounds like a very odd statement. But it is true. I have no fear of economic collapse, even though I am fully convinced that the hardest times that any of us have ever experienced are ahead. I spend countless hours in front of my computer immersed in deeply disturbing information, and yet I sleep more soundly at night than I ever have before. In fact, my wife and I seek to live in a constant state of “shalom,” which is the Hebrew word for peace. So how is this possible? How can “the economic collapse guy” not be absolutely overwhelmed by fear, depression and paranoia?

Unlike so many who write about these things, I believe that preparation for what is ahead goes far beyond the physical. So I am constantly stressing the need for mental, emotional and especially spiritual preparation. Personally, I have absolutely no idea how atheists are going to make it through what is coming. They don’t understand why they are here, they don’t understand why history is unfolding the way it is, and they have absolutely no hope for the future beyond this life. If you greatly fear death and you can’t stand to lose the possessions that you have accumulated, the years ahead are going to be exceedingly difficult for you. FULL REPORT
