It's not really meant to be for "the end of the world", as other's said it's just one of those common sense ideas that so many don't seem to understand.Like:

1) Living healthy, eating right, no smoking alcohol, cigarettes, addicting drugs, etc..
2) Live within your means, save for a rainy day, pay off your cars, mortgages, and keep your monthly bills to a minimum.
3) Keep a supply of food in case of emergency, then you won't be one of the fools standing in line for common comodities for hours on end.
4) Store some gasoline so likewise your not waiting for 5gals of gas all day long, lol.(Ya gotta wonder about this considering NY was warned this was coming.. why no one bought some fuel beforehand?)

There are many, many things we can do to prepare for life like the grasshopper compared to the ant, some are smart and listen and some are dumb.

No. But it is a good idea for everybody to have a storage supply on hand. Look at all the problems that we are having lately. A supply would be good when there's been a disaster, you wouldn't have to hunt down food supplies for a while. Or if your job earners lost their jobs. They could still feed the family for a while, until they found new jobs..

The LDS view on food storage is for those events. In the 1800s and early 1900s there were times that the weather prevented food supplies to be brought in from outside the area. Those people relied on their storage to keep them fed. And that storage did include non-food items as well. We are encouraged to maintain a sufficient storage to last for several months in case there is some unforeseen disaster that prevents food and other supplies to be brought in. There are enough idiots who don't want to be prepared, we don't have to be one of them.

Preparing for the end of the world, sometimes called 'prepping', is not something that Mormons do specifically. The Mormon you know is probably just an especially paranoid one.



Answered:
No. not really.Canned food isnt going to save you from "the end of the world".

Rather it has more to do with being prepared for emergencies or disasters.Not just being reliant on the government to come and save you in every situation.Look at Katrina and even the mess in NY last month.Would not have been the hell it was for those people if they were better prepared.

Last month northern BC had a minor earthquake. As a result trucking of commodities was disrupted. Some things were just not in the stores, and some things all the sudden became prohibitively expensive for like a week. Those of us who had food storage were not messed up at all. That's what food stage is about. Emergency preparedness.Or sudden unemployment.



Answered:
that's in case of any emergency.
i know a guy who told mormons that he didn't need todo it because he would just kill them and take their supplies. it was a bad joke but with an element of truth to it. if people need and don't have and they know who has,then they will be coming for it.



Answered:
Sometimes people get fired from their job, or a business goes bankrupt.And so forth and so on.

Better safe than sorry.
