There have been a lot of naysayers crying the blues about the global economy and the rough road ahead like no other that is on its way to America.
Initially one can blow off these sad tidings as babblings from doomsday nuts and over zealous negative nellies. When the warnings continue though, at some point, it may be time to pay attention.
Even Jesus told us to watch for signs of what was coming. As Christians with families, with children, in a host of differing situations, this is bound to give us pause. So, how does the devout Christian prepare for rocky roads and turmoil ahead, according to the bible? How bad could things get?
Do you arm yourself and your family? Store or hoard food, supplies, and water? Should rioting begin and bands of roaming vandals want what’s yours, do you try to share what you’ve got, or run the lot off your piece of ground?
How does the individual Christian look at the lay of the land and stay calm, trusting in the Lord, but being wise as a serpent, yet gentle as a dove? What does the bible tell us about these questions?
Soros detailed his concerns about the global economy and society in a recent interview with Newsweek.
He said that the current situation is “comparable in many ways” to the Great Depression. “The best-case scenario is a deflationary environment. The worst-case scenario is a collapse of the financial system,” he told Newsweek.
The world’s loss of confidence in the efficiency of global markets after the financial crisis in 2008 “is comparable to the collapse of Marxism as a political system,” Soros said in the Newsweek interview.
He said he expects riots in the United States as people respond angrily to their deteriorating economic conditions.
“It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system,” he said.
Soros said in early December that the global financial system is in a “self-reinforcing process of disintegration,” as a “deflationary debt trap” takes hold.
