 It doesn’t say much for one’s confidence level if they go out and buy bandages, splints, painkillers, ice packs, and neck braces before picking a fight. Even if they happened to be delusional, overestimating both their skill and endurance, taking preemptive measures for the worst-case scenario would seem a curious thing.

The only logical conclusion one is apt to come to, seeing as you’re stocking up on medical supplies while seemingly in good health, is that first, you’re planning on getting into a tussle, and second, you’re thinking you’re not going to come out of it unscathed.

If recent reports are to be believed, and let’s face it, given the level of propaganda, taking everything with a grain of salt is a must, the US government has been stocking up on potassium iodide pills. For those who don’t know or are wholly unaware, potassium iodide pills are taken to help protect human beings from the effects of radiation.

Incompetent and wholly useless as this administration has proven itself to be, it’s worth noting that of all the things they could be focusing on, they chose to focus on the acquisition of potassium iodide. Couple that with the state of New York doing PSAs warning its citizens that in case of a nuclear attack, they should stay in their homes and put tin foil on their windows, and it may lead one to conclude that perhaps we are not as safe as some delude themselves into believing.  

Some still fail to grasp that we are no longer in the warning stages. The warning stages have come and gone, and we’ve graduated to fulfillment. Though many have warned that the storm was coming, few believed them because the sun was shining and birds were chirping. The present was all that mattered.

Life was too good to be weighed down by thoughts of what would be, and during those rare times when the warnings penetrated our slumber, there was always a snooze button close at hand and someone to insist that we wouldn’t be here for any of that anyway.

Ignore it, and it will go away. That was the church’s motto for the last few decades, and although that might work for a bruised shin, it doesn’t translate to other things. The one thing we could have done we chose not to do because the notion of repentance fell out of favor, only to be replaced by worldliness and compromise.

For fear of being labeled legalists, entire denominations forbade the word sin from being uttered in the pulpit. So, the truth became a subjective matter, something to be twisted and contorted to the point that it became unrecognizable. Getting stabbed in the back by overzealous lickspittles became just as likely as getting stabbed in the face by the enemy, and those willing to point to the atrocity taking place and calling it by name grew fewer and fewer still.

What does any of this have to do with potassium iodide tablets? Had we humbled ourselves, had we turned from our wicked ways, had we repented and sought the face of God, we wouldn’t need to be buying them. Sort of my path not taken morning musing.

With love in Christ,
