I have a 17-year-old son who is concerned about the coming chastisement (which may or may not be in his lifetime). He has read about the three days of darkness and is concerned that we are not properly preparing ourselves in case of war. He seems to think that we should go out and get all kinds of guns and weapons in order to prepare in case fighting should break out or there is chaos in our society. He gets upset when I tell him that death is not to be feared if our soul is ready to meet God. But he tells me that we have lived our life and he wants to live his. This really bothers him, our not gathering guns for protection of the family. How do I get through to him? He thinks that we are all too ready to lay our lives down. He seems to have a conflict between martyrdom and defending oneself.
