To Flee, or Not to Flee? That is the Question

As an American who sees the undergirding of democracy not simply eroding, but being hit agressively with a wrecking ball, it is a sober time for consideration. I have been blessed with four small children and their future for them is my responsibility to prepare them for. What concerns me most about this American collapse is that we are on the brink of a totalitarian government that has the most advanced tracking technology available to it. Even if the country one would flee to should also become despotic, they will not have the same technologies that we currently have dispersed among our population.

The time is indeed short and now is the time to decide. Do I stay here and we die for Christ if need be, or do we flee and seek a nation where Christianity is growing and find our place “in the corner of an attic” rather than sitting at the table with a “stalled ox and a contentious woman”? Is there another place on earth with another generation or two of relative freedom?

The Church grew in the beginning because believer scattered when the Church in Jerusalem was persecuted. Looking at those who fled Nazi Germany and came to America – it sure looked like a good decision from my vantage. Yet, to stay when one sees what is coming, is it folly?

I am interested in your thoughts on this. Thank you!

What do YOU think?



  1. Dear Brother,
    If Gods’ will is NOT in what you do, whether you leave America, stay, move to another state or another area of your state then whatever you do will fail. Press in to God , fast and pray and ask Him what His will is for you and how you should prepare for what is coming.

    For myself, I believe it is a mistake to leave because God said that judgment rains on the just and unjust. “…for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. (Mat 5:45)

    If you truly love and trust and obey the Lord with all your heart then you and your family will be protected and provided for.

    God Bless!

  2. I believe that we can make life bearable by forward planning.
    There are wilderness areas all over the earth. These places can be made habitable if we are forced to leave the cities.
    There will be no refuge apart from in the Rock of ages.

    Glory to God

    I believe if I lived in America now, I would flee. I’d be making arrangements now. That is because I want to see good on the earth still, and have a few more years to prepare and make the gospel known. I would want my children to have an opportunity to live a righteous life on the earth.

    But folks, I have been wrong before. I’m not in your position exactly, though I imagine that trouble would follow in Australia not too long afterwards if America goes down. Its easy to imagine our country getting over-run by Indonesian muslims if America was crippled.

    A country like India or China seems to me to be a safer bet, but Jesus said the time would come when we would be hated by all nations for His Name’s sake.

    Jesus said the hour of trial will come like a snare upon all who dwell on the earth. We need to pray more, that much is certain. We need to learn to obey God’s voice now, or we might fail to later on, when it really counts.
