Meet the Preppers... and the Mormons (Part 2)
James Talmage Stevens lives up on a mountain somewhere in Texas, where he has a few years' worth of food, a well he can pump by hand, sturdy walls, and gardens for food. He's prepared for just about anything.
"In mercy the Lord warns and forewarns. He sees the coming storm, knows the forces operating to produce it, and calls aloud through His prophets, advises, counsels, exhorts, even commands--that we prepare for what is about to befall and take shelter while yet there is time. But we go our several ways, feasting and making merry, consoling conscience with the easy fancy of 'time enough' and in idle hope that the tempest will pass us by, or that, when it begins to gather thick and black about us we can turn back and ﬁnd shelter."- James E Talmage, The Parables of James E. Talmage, p. 50
Yes, indeed.My father named me after Apostle Talmage, hoping I would be erudite. Talmage was one of the smartest man of his day.He was President of the University of Utah, with several doctorates....Spirituality is not about religion, but about commitment. Without a spiritual driver (the force within that drives your core beliefs) you cannot achieve great works.The LDS Preparedness Manual is not an LDS Church publication--not at all!In fact, it's a knock-off of my book... by a group of maverick Mormons.But, whatever....
