I still wear a silver 'rope' around my neck with one 'dog tag' on it, my house key, dog whistle and a small medicine storage carrier. A few times when I got into a traffic accident they came in handy for the medics to ID me. I wear the 'dog tag' for personal reasons, with the term, "Christian" on it, etc.
From what I hear, the REAL powers in the world that control everything have already decided how our USA national debt fiasco will shake out, and the baloney that we see in D.C. and on the "News" is just some smoke and mirrors eye wash to get everyone excited. I think that everything will continue as before-- more compounding debt and higher $$$ ceiling/ interest, and we will have to 'pay the piper' some day. I think that after the Rapture things will fall apart and go South in a hurry, but after that WHO CARES??! The Saints and Believers will have been taken up to heaven with the Lord, and the goofy unbelievers will be left behind to suffer the consequences of their procrastination and selfishness/ willful ignorance/ sin.
For the record, Saints DO SIN, but they are forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ, and they try hard to sin less with the help of the Holy Spirit, and pure knowledge of the Bible. For these reasons, I don't put a lot of stress and meaning on material things because I know that God just doesn't care about such mundane things-- but on the content of our hearts, minds and character. I can't ever point my finger at others because it took me, personally, a long time get humble enough to allow the Spirit to work on me and mature me as a Christian brother/ servant of Christ. I feel that my finest and most important work now is to share the Gospel with others and help others see the road to salvation in Christ-- letting the Holy Spirit use me to reach other individuals before the end comes-- the proverbial 'Ark' shuts close.
