Standing on this Watchtower, we all sense that we live in an uncertain and dangerous period. Some of us have found confirmation of this through the study of market cycles and/or the works of Strauss & Howe. Charlie Johnston speaks of these perilous times in more religious terms and it was quite interesting to visit with him earlier today.
Let me just state up front: This is not your usual podcast. If Christianity (and religion in general) isn't your cup of tea, I urge you to reconsider whether or not you want to listen to this recording. The idea behind presenting Charlie to everyone was to demonstrate another avenue of finding confirmation of the perilous times ahead. Therefore, this thread is not designed as a vehicle to argue about religion and faith, The Church and The Pope. You can do that in the forums. Instead, when Charlie mentions his prophetic visions of "The Storm"...the current period in which we live, lasting through the end of 2017...try to consider how this coincides with all of the other secular and agnostic theories of what is coming over the horizon.
Ultimately, the good news is that Charlie doesn't see this as some sort of End Times apocalypse. Instead, it's a type of purification that leads ultimately to a more honest, trustworthy and caring society. And we can't we all agree that that would be something far preferable to today?!?
So, again, I hope you enjoy this different type of podcast. I very much appreciated having the opportunity to visit with Charlie and I hope we can speak again sometime soon.
