Who Else Is Preparing For The End Of The World? Porn Companies.

I thought this past Sunday was a great start to Future Shock. For me, it was great to see months of preparation pay off with the series beginning. One of the things I had done for the series was to do research on various end of the world businesses, like Vivos (bunkers) and After The Rapture Pet Care (no explanation needed). Of course, it shouldn't be surprising that porn companies are trying to cash in on these fears as well. This week I was on Drudge Report and saw a link about a porn company building an underground bunker so it can be ready for the end of the world in 2012. I was curious about the story, but my first thought is, "What kind of website does this go to?" Checked the address, and it was to a CBS blog out of Los Angeles. Whew!*

*I say that partly to be above reproach, partly to acknowledge the reality many of us face who spend time online, and partly because of my story of being a former porn addict.

The bunker will be more a hedonistic den than a bunker. They aren't truly preparing for the end of the world, but I found it funny and sad that this bunker is in the works. I'm sure we've heard people joke about partying when the end of the world comes. When Harold Camping gave his failed Judgment Day date in May, it became an excuse for many people to gather together and party. Next December, this porn company will make sure its porn business/lifestyle can continue if the end of the world happens in conjunction with the end of the Mayan calendar. And, those of us who have given ourselves over to sin, can be in the "safety" of the bunker for a price. The porn company will make a ton of money off of leveraging people's fears and/or addictions.

What about you? We've all joked about the end of the world, and we know people who say they are looking forward to partying in Hell. When the world does end, it will not be a fun-filled time. Hell will not be a paradise for sinners. As Lead Pastor Mark said in the first Future Shock message, you need to be ready. Jesus is our coming King. The future implications are huge for the present.

When the world ends, make sure Jesus is Lord of your life. Don't make sure you can still be a sinner.
