Mormons stash away for social safety net~Take a look at their storehouse
Mormons stash away for social safety net

In a nondescript industrial park in Salt Lake City, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints maintains a vast 500,000 sq. ft. warehouse with enough goods to rival your local Costco. From wheelchairs and toilet paper to sugar and bread, The Utah Bishops’ Central Storehouse is stocked.

Despite the prevalence of Mormon business success stories in the media -- most notably Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney -- one quarter of all U.S. Mormon households earn $30,000 a year or less according to Pew Research Center.

The storehouse, along with 110 similar facilities spread across the country, is part of the Mormon effort to help those in need, Mormon and non-Mormon alike.

The storehouse and other facets of the Mormon welfare system, such as thrift stores, are primarily funded by Mormons who fast one Sunday every month for two consecutive meals, and then donate the money they would have spent on food to the church.

Watch video and read the rest here:

Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him;
and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.

Bishop's storehouse

The concept of the bishop's storehouse is based on a revelation received by church founder Joseph Smith, Jr. on February 9, 1831, whereby he was instructed to keep goods "in my [the Lord's] storehouse, to administer to the poor and the needy".

Most of the goods in the storehouse are purchased with fast offering funds or produced on church-owned agricultural property. The storehouses are staffed by volunteers or church service missionaries. Persons in need, whether members of the church or not, can access the storehouse by approaching a bishop or local Relief Society president.

 Quoting: Margaret Smith


One of the comments below the article said this:

"The article doesn't mention that EVERY Mormon household is supposed to have TWO YEARS OF FOOD STORAGE for emergencies. This also includes 55 gallon drums of water, toilet paper, weapons to protect the food storage, etc.

Thus, only in Utah will you see ads for "complete" systems containing enough dried food to feed a family for that period. It's big business here."

Re: Mormons stash away for social safety net~Take a look at their storehouse
I was raised in the Mormon Church. In 1963 our family of 8 lost our home when it burned to the ground. My parents, while hard working, had barely made do up to that point.

Without even asking for help, the church immediately provided groceries. My first ever frozen orange juice concentrate! It all came from the local warehouse. This only lasted a short time, as my parents had an income, even if not a home. Congregation members jumped in to donate used furnishings, appliances, clothing, etc. to make up for our loss.

Our family, though the love and devotion of our congregation, hardly skipped a bit.

While I have not been actively involved in the LDS church for 20 years, I am grateful for q Mormon background, its support in my youth, and its teachings of preparedness.

A few years back, my husband did some work for a Mormon family.

He was a subcontractor and knew this family for a number of years. The husband and wife were very nice and my husband would always take every opportunity to share his born-again experience with them.

The first winter snowfall, after my husband passed away, I heard voices and the sound of shoveling outside my window. I peered out and saw 4 young women shoveling my yard.

I found out that the Mormon family had sent them to my home as a friendly gesture, as they knew of the difficulties and grief I was going through at the time.

That was a very kind and thoughtful thing to do, indeed.

While I am no longer an actively involved Mormon, my children are, as well as most of my relatives. Never heard in all my life about Mormon's being encouraged in any way to be armed. Never heard anything to discourage it either. Most Mormons will want to ensure their children and grandchildren are fed before marauding gangs. Suit yourself.

Not true. Would you freely give away what you have to those who also wish to do you harm? Your family harm?
No.
It goes against human nature and natures laws. A wild animal will protect its nest, young, territory as should we all.
Jesus was NOT a hippy emo freak as the modern church portrays him.
We must remember the bible today and the interpretations thereof are corrupted by the hands of man who revised it all to fulfill a certain politico-socio agenda.

Eyes open. Jesus said this himself apparently.
“From this hour, whoever has a money bag should take it and thus also a wallet, and whoever lacks a sword, let him sell his tunic and buy a sword for himself.
Also
Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise,

Follow the laws of nature and rational thought and you will be close to the original teachings.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19490298


Never heard of the "3 year absolute". My devout and very active Mormon children tell me now the Church encourages 6 months of preparedness, more if you can. In my youth, 2 years was encouraged. Never knew many that actually had that. Maybe 2 years in wheat, dried milk, honey, and salt. Bare minimum to sustain life.

Of course, new technology makes dehydrated and freeze dried foods more easily available if you have the bucks.

I think Mormons as well as lots of us GLPer's are working on it. Your Mormon friends are always happy to share what they know about preparedness.

Be Prepared - Boy Scout Motto! Your family may depend on it!

Most so-called Christian churches these days are about sticking their hands out for money to fund the purchase of a new espresso machine, which is mainly used by the staff.

If you're in trouble, you're lucky if some of the members will come to your aid. The church incorporate -- forget it.

This is mainstream, western, American Style Christianity I"m talking about, not real Christianity BTW.

Sadly this is true. Any Christian should be willing to help anyone that asks.

But people that don't live by this philosophy shouldn't bother pointing out how others lack in this. God will tell you what to do, it's up to everyone to ignore Him or not.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19490298


Never heard of the "3 year absolute". My devout and very active Mormon children tell me now the Church encourages 6 months of preparedness, more if you can. In my youth, 2 years was encouraged. Never knew many that actually had that. Maybe 2 years in wheat, dried milk, honey, and salt. Bare minimum to sustain life.

Of course, new technology makes dehydrated and freeze dried foods more easily available if you have the bucks.

I think Mormons as well as lots of us GLPer's are working on it. Your Mormon friends are always happy to share what they know about preparedness.

Be Prepared - Boy Scout Motto! Your family may depend on it!

The Mormon family I mentioned above had about a years supply of preparedness.

Here is an older GLP thread on the subject:

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task
the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:24

"This man really is the Savior of the world!" John 4:42

Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him;
and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.

Re: Mormons stash away for social safety net~Take a look at their storehouse
This marks one of the VAST differences between the American and the English Mormons.

In the USA, Mormons think that you should try not to claim off welfare and always actively try to get a job if you can. And to ensure that your family does not starve whilst you struggle, the Church will help out with essentials like orange juice and milk whilst the Bishop prays for you.

In England, Mormons think you are CURSED TO HELL if you EVER claim off welfare and you MUST ALWAYS get a job. If the only job going in town is picking poo out of blocked up public toilets by hand, an ex-CEO has no choice, he MUST roll up his sleeves and take it rather than claim welfare for a week and be condemned to hell for ETERNITY. And, to ensure your family do not starve as you struggle to find a new job, the Church will help out with essentials like sacks of Gruel, a barrel of fish heads and limitless supply of flavoured sawdust whilst the Bishop lectures you several times a day, by phone, letter and brick through the window to get off your lazy butt and get a job.

A person is first responsible for their own family. So all you idiots who think that the Mormons or other preppers are going to feed you when the stores are empty, let me tell you what you will find - rocketrocketmacgun343

You can prepare now, or you can starve. The 5% of the population that has put aside something will not willingly starve just to feed you later.

Get off your butts and put some preps in order for hard times. Or learn a skill that will be highly needed during hard times.

Someone once described the hard bastards at Lingfield in England as "the unacceptable face of Mormonism".

I can agree with that. We need more UK mormans in the US. It truely is your job to support yourself and any other humans you wish to father. That includes anything you marry.

If you want the rest of us to support your hobby then you have to put up with the lectures. heh.

Any real MAN would happily pick poo to provide for himself and his family, rather than sit on his ass and collect charity.

Anyone that doesn't love Moms, bacon, and dogs is clearly not human.
