Did anyone else hear about the so called “Tent Cities”?
UP TO A POINT This region of the United States is located on a subduction zone that is long overdue for a shift, which will result in a big earthquake at some time in the future. Scientists predict that they occur around every 300 years in this region, and that the country is well overdue for one of them. When the earthquake occurs, it will cause a tsunami that will completely destroy coastal settlements in Oregon and Washington. This is science, not conspiracy theory, as the saying goes. Depending on the circumstances, Idaho may be able to accept some of the evacuated refugees, similar to what Texas did in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
If you anticipate being homeless in the near future, purchasing a sturdy foldable shelter (such as a tent) is a wise decision.
These are not, in and of themselves, indicators of the apocalypse.
These myths have two purposes: they foster group togetherness as individuals band together to prepare for the end of the world, and they generate terror, which cults may employ to maintain control over its members.
Instruct your children on what to do in an emergency situation.
Roger K. Young on ‘Why Tent cities’
I chose to publish this after reading a message on my other thread re:JR ‘Time to Clarify’ and thinking about it. Roger K. Young should be given credit for what I believe to be the current day description of ‘tent cities’ (there are differing opinions on what ‘tent cities’ are and what some have termed a ‘call out’ means), as described by Julie Rowe in her first book, ‘A Greater Tomorrow.’ Roger K. Young should be given credit for what I believe to be the current day description of ‘tent cities’ (there are differing opinions on what ‘tent cities’ are and what some have Due to the fact that she is more well-known than he is, I suppose that is why so many people assume that they originated with her.
- I honestly believe it’s worth reading since he makes a compelling argument for his ideas and has had a significant impact on many people through his assertions.
- His paper, titled “Tent Cities in the Last Days,” may be found at cities.pdf.
- They also issued a letter to stake presidents, asking them to find out what supplies the Saints had on hand, as well as how much food storage was available.
- Axes, hammers, food storage, blankets, hygiene supplies, fabric, clothes, hoes, rakes, ails, horses, cows, and other items were among those on the want list.
- The prophet then issued an appeal to Church members to congregate at camps that had been set up as safe havens for those fleeing persecution.
- This invitation came as no surprise to the Saints who had already participated in the earlier sessions on readiness, but it came as a surprise to the vast majority of the Church’s members who had not previously participated.
- Only a small number of the members attended the camps, either because they had the necessary faith or because they were unprepared for the experience.
- The semi-trucks arrived in white, and they were filled with supplies and food storage before heading to the camps to begin their work.
- People were still going to work, going to school, and going about their routine daily activities as usual.
If you really want to think that Julie had a near-death experience, at the very least give Roger Young credit for having seen it all first—in a vision back in 1973-before anybody else.
Modern Prophets On Tent Cities, Avow, Etc.
It is one thing to be prepared, but it is quite another to engage in obsessive fear mongering (where have we learned about gentle persuasion?) recruiting and food hoarding while excluding the “unworthy.” They have completely crossed the line! There are a lot of these bizarre individuals in the world. They are preoccupied with physical readiness, with little regard for the far more vital aspect of preparedness – spiritual preparedness. To be honest with you, I had no idea that AVOW and Roger Young existed until today.
- In any case, while it appears to be fashionable among TBMs to demonize “Mormon prepers” as extremists (as previously said, I am not one of them), the reality remains that, according to the scriptures, there are dreadful days of plague and starvation on the way.
- Preparedness for the impending days of adversity, which we are confident will occur.
- You want to wager that there will be a large number of active users who will claim that Doomsday is a fantasy one day before the Crap hits the fan?
- My argument is that unless a genuine long-term food storage and emergency necessities program is implemented, the condemnation heaped on the prepper community by such unprepared people will be rendered meaningless.

I looked into these unusual ideas and discovered a plethora of relevant facts. According to reports, Roger K Young was the one who launched the movement (of course has the middle initial to sound apostolic). He is the author of various publications and the creator of the website LDSAVOW.com. The ability to read forums is subject to a monthly subscription of $4.95 or an annual fee of $44.95 (see the link below for further information). Members of Ldsavow number 7,833 in number, with 3,611 of them labeled as “Active Members” (a higher rate of retention than TSCC!) I made a profile for the purpose of seeing what it was all about for a month.
I had a lot of fun locating previous blogs that talked about something that was going to happen shortly, even if it had been several years since then.
- This one from 2008, in which she expresses her concern that waiting until the fall of that year might be too late
- There is speculation of an approaching stock market catastrophe, and many are talking of withdrawing all of their money from their bank accounts. This occurred in August of 2011. This was the week in which the markets performed admirably: Each and every news report that indicates that the end of the world is imminent is discussed in these forums with a fervor by the members. Any negative event that occurs serves as more evidence that the call-out and second coming are imminent. Members of ldsavow are also always talking about their hopes and goals. They are firm in their belief that dreams have real meaning. Missionaries have fantasies of being able to return home sooner rather than later. In no manner, shape, or form! Missionaries who toil hard for 80 hours a week with no touch with their families or the outside world and have fantasies of returning home must be experiencing a spiritual awakening! Participants in the ldsavow call out use the same rationale for believing in this call out that TBMs use to claim that the TSCC is real. members of ldsavow think that they, as well as the church, are being persecuted severely. Here’s a post about a Proposition 8 commercial, in which the TSCC is accused of becoming too involved. The following is a link to the commercial: Due to the fact that he appears to be a co-owner, or even the only owner of ldsavow.com, we did not blacklist this individual. It appears like Roger K Young hasn’t posted anything new in a while. One of the most popular dreams is really a series of dreams related by Christopher M. Parrett, one of the world’s most famous dreamers (also with the middle initial, and also has a lot ofbooks) Listed below is the complete post on this popular dream, which is the inspiration for a lot of the talks. Here is a link to a collection of many of the dreams that the ldsavow members have posted, which was put together by one of the users: link The following are a few random items:

America’s Tent Cities for the Homeless
Despite the fact that the general number of homeless persons in the United States has been steadily declining in recent years, homelessness has increased dramatically in major metropolitan areas. According to a study released by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, more than 500,000 people were homeless in the United States at the end of last year. Many people who find themselves living on the streets find a sense of belonging and protection in homeless encampments, whether the tent cities are officially sanctioned or unofficially established.
