The Prepper Filter – 11 Questions That Will Help You Be A Better Prepper



I was recently asked by someone in a conversation “What is a Prepper”?  I started to answer the question with a knee jerk reaction being that a prepper is someone with a cache of bullets, band aids and beans stored away in the event that the world shows signs of coming to an end via economic collapse, EMP events, Madrid earthquakes or other major disasters.  After a long pause, my definition came out of my mouth and it was that a prepper is simply one who prepares.

This led to a short conversation spurred on by the person asking what they are preparing for.  We talked for a little bit and ended the conversation both a bit confused because they didn’t understand why someone would can meat when they can freeze it and I couldn’t understand how they haven’t heard about a power outage lasting for more than a week.  It was not surprising to see our conversation go in that direction and end the way it did given that upwards of 95% or more of the population just don’t see that there is any reason to think that society can break down, but what was surprising was the thought process I had that followed our conversation.

Make no mistake about it; there will be a crash of some sort and depending on how far we fall will determine how bad it is.  We are a hand to mouth society far removed from the habits of our ancestry who stored food in their cellars, produced food in fields and gardens and had food producing animals out in the back 40 to sustain them.  Today procurement of food is completed via going continually to the grocery store, eating out and ordering in.  Virtually no one is paying attention to how long a person’s family will last if that supply chain is disrupted for any reason.

  3. First of all I would like to say superb blog!
    I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I've had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!

  29. A Prepper is someone with no faith and consequently feels the need to protect himself from unforeseen or foreseen possible scenarios. A Prepper is not a Christian, these two should not be confused; a Christian trusts in the providence of God despite the chaos around him, whereas a Prepper trusts only in himself and has no faith/trust in God at all.
    The Apostles when they were sent out were commanded by The Lord to take no money, food, bag, neither any weapons, or two coats ( shows lack of faith you see, they would not have to sleep outside as The Lord would provide lodgings in every city ); and when the Lord asked them if they lacked anything when they did this they said that they lacked nothing.
    This makes no sense to Preppers as they would take loads of food, loads of guns and ammo, lots of clothing and maybe a tent, water filtration, seeds, tools, and maybe tonnes of other things that I have not thought of!

    Christians prepare for Christ's return at the end of the world and are careless for their earthly provision, leaving it to God, whilst Preppers take down their barns to build greater ones to bestow their earthly fruits in when their souls may be required of them that night.

    That it what Preppers are, fools with no faith and a mind that only thinks about this life and the things in this world as if it is all that there is.
