1 Thessalonians 5:9 and the Fall of America

When I wrote yesterday about the suddenness of disaster, I quoted 1 Thessalonians 5:3-7. And, I deliberately left out verse 9. I did that to prove a point. I did that to help you understand that your pastor may be a ‘peace and safety‘ pastor, causing you to ignore the sudden destruction that is coming.

You see, in verses three through seven, it is clear that Paul is telling us that we can avoid disaster by staying awake, watching for what is coming and then, by implication, taking steps to avoid the disaster that will take away those who preached ‘peace and safety‘. So, why do pastors use verse nine to preach ‘peace and safety’?

When It Happens, It Will Happen Quickly

I find catastrophes to be interesting. Everyone that I know that has been through one, always talks about how sudden they are. One minute, you are walking down the street with the shops open and the sun shining, and then, just moments later, your world has turned upside down – tanks block the streets, earthquakes topple buildings or bombs blow up packed buses. Whatever they are, extreme events always seem to come out of ‘nowhere’. In fact, ‘nowhere’ is such a common place, the English language even has a word for it.

But, is disaster really so sudden?
