Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. –Thomas Paine

A few years ago, there were a lot of off-the-grid reports concerning hundreds of thousands of mysterious coffins, government coffins. They were stockpiled at various locations around the fifty states. One major storage area was located near Elberton, GA. One popular video report on these coffins is located here:

These coffins are still in plain view at certain locales. They allegedly are owned by FEMA or some other government agency. Many questions were raised before and continue to be raised now about their purpose. Why would Uncle Sam need so many coffins and whose names are on them? Maybe yours? Maybe mine? This is still a mystery. It’s hard to know who to believe because opinions abound.

There is another question about the coffins that should be answered. Why are some of the coffins now being moved to different locations? Is it because they have now been fully exposed and people are curious and ask too many questions? It’s difficult, if not impossible, to find a clear answer.

If you do the research you will find that the opinions vary as far as the east is from the west. Some still believe the government is about to take many of us to death camps. Another group believes that these are merely storage containers designed to store things other than bodies. And, still others claim they are burial vaults and not coffins at all.

Certainly, there are the conspiracy advocates who make claims that range from the plausible to the ridiculous. But, there is evidence that something does brew beneath the surface. When there is so much smoke, there is probably at least a little fire somewhere. We know for a fact that the coffins exist. We just don’t know why.

Possibly, there is no truth to the conspiracy stories at all. Maybe the coffins are for every day and legitimate uses. On the other hand, if Uncle Sam does have sinister plans in the works, there would certainly be official cover stories. I don’t think anyone would expect the government to come out and say that they planned to eliminate a large number of citizens.

Remember what the Nazis told some of their Jewish victims as they entered the gas chambers? They assured them that they were only going to take a shower. Obviously, the soldiers couldn’t reveal that they were actually about to enter a gas chamber and be exterminated like rats.

In order to ensure that no one discovered the true nature of the chambers the Nazis went as far as to display posters on the outside door that described proper hygiene. As a final touch and to insure the deception was complete the chambers were equipped with fake showerheads.

We know the rest of the story. The victims obediently entered the chamber, looked up at the showerheads, and waited for the water to flow. It didn’t. But deadly Zyklon-B gas did.

Those of us who are seniors know that our country’s nature and soul is morphing quickly into something alien. This is not the place we grew up to know and love. History teaches us that there is nothing that can’t happen in a society, even the best of them. We are never absolutely safe from the evils of other men. Nations rise and they fall. This can occur over time or in a blink of an eye.

There are a couple of other factors that I believe should be considered and may be related to the FEMA coffins. I simply offer some thoughts for your ponderance.

There is another conspiracy-ridden story that involves various FEMA camps around the country that apparently are being developed for some future use. Usually, these facilities are abandoned military bases or such. The claim is that these camps are for interment of Americans when Martial Law is declared. Or, they may be for political enemies of the current adminstration.

Again, it is difficult to determine the purpose of these camps with any certainty. But, like the coffins, they do exist. Even CBS news reported on November 12, 2013 that the camps are real. Currently, one such facility houses some Sandy victims and this is a good use of the camps. Few observers, however, think good causes like this is why they were built. There are many videos on YouTube and other sites about the camps. One video with visual tour can be viewed here.

One thing that stood out to me as I watched this video is that railroad tracks run through this camp. This is reminiscent of the Nazi camps where trains brought in the victims. Just saying. It’s also difficult to determine why certain improvements are being made. What type of facility would need these upgrades?

My big fear is that the naiveté of the American people may override what clear logic would otherwise dictate. We Americans tend to respond to feelings rather than facts and we often try to wish away anything that threatens us. We don’t know what it is like to have foreign soldiers on our soil or witness bombs falling around us.

As Americans we have a difficult time believing that something dark and sinister, on a large scale, could happen here. How could it? This is America! Right? Yes, it is America, but I honestly don’t know what that name means anymore. Everyone seems to have a different idea. Obama’s idea of America certainly is not mine.

Have you ever wondered how Hitler’s words were able to capture the hearts of the German people? Or, how Marx’s arguments seized the souls of hundreds of millions worldwide? These men offered people a vision and moved them with emotion. The gullible crowds were infused with hope, false hope for sure, but hope. They were given a vision that eventually led many of those very same people to their own graves.

From the days of Marx and Hitler close to two hundred million people have been slaughtered directly due to the ideas of these two men. Their vision has proved to be deadly. What I find almost unbelievable is that these same ideas still flourish today, even in America. Will our gullibility eventually kill us?

America’s power hungry politicians utilize the same deceptive methods. They grab power when they are able to paint an emotional picture, a vision of a future utopia where everyone has everything they need. It doesn’t seem to bother the majority of Americans that these utopian visions always fail.

In our private lives and businesses we would not engage in practices and policies that don’t work. So, why do we allow our government to attempt them? Not to mention that they use our money, rather they waste our money, doing these things.

I will leave with an encouragement, and this is for me as much as it is for you. Don’t be deceived. Don’t be gullible. Study the issues. Research the facts. Don’t ignore the actions of others when they refute their words. Learn the Constitution. And, most important read what God’s Word says about these things. He has a lot to say.

I can say this with total conviction. I know it is true. Men and women are fallen creatures therefore no utopia is even possible on earth this side of Christ’s return. Regardless, and in defiance of the facts and all of history, men will still continue to try to plant some form of heaven on earth. They will fail because they will use their blueprint instead of God’s.

However, we can have a much, much better world if we abide by the principles for people, families, churches, and government found in Scripture. Joshua 1:8 (NASB) confirms this:
This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
