Do any of you deal with a complacent husband who thinks you're over the top for being "obsessed" with end times things, or threats to our country? Who prefers not to talk about scenarios that we can't change? I tried bringing up how we should create a plan and maybe prepare for if things get bad, and he doesn't seem to be worried about it. He would rather focus on the positive, and not get all wrapped up in things we have no control over. He is a Christian, but not really in the word or following Christ per se.
He says everyone for the last 100 years has been talking about who's going to destroy us and it hasn't happened yet. And that people have "always thought they were in the end times". He thinks I'm turning into a conspiracy theorist, and just so you know, I am the furthest thing from one! The things I'm concerned about are the possibility of Iran attacking our country (emps, nukes, etc), economic collapse, Gog and Magog war, and the rapture. The same things that very smart prophecy teachers and even our government are aware of. He pointed out that none of our friends sit and talk about these things, as if that's a good measuring stick!
I told him that it's only a conspiracy theory until it happens, and that it's not good for us to bury our head in the sand. Also, about the rapture, the way I usually counter that is by pointing out that someone is going to be right.
