I spend more time outside than I do inside. My wife and I do a lot of hiking and end up off the beaten Trail and a few times we've even become lost. I decided to buy a survival knife that came with a fire starter and a rescue whistle. The knife also comes with a waterproof survival pamphlet that is tucked away in the sheath of the knife in case you run into trouble. When you open up the pamphlet it tells you how to tie knots build shelters start fires signal for help Etc. But what I was surprised to find was the man whose name is on this knife, Bear Grylls, is probably a Christian. The beginning of the pamphlet says so you're in a spot of trouble. It goes on to say,"have faith and keep your hope up." At the end of the pamphlet It also says," keep faith in yourself and faith in the Almighty they can be your greatest Ally and strength Godspeed."
By the way I love the knife and the sheath; excellent quality highly recommend the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro survival knife. But I'm starting to wonder whether I even need it. Because according to the pamphlet in here all I really have to do is have faith and pray to the almighty and I should be fine. Was this a waste of money?
It's incredible to see how God could enter every aspect of Our Lives. We are saturated in it. We have been steeped in religion for so long and in so many ways that it seems normal. It is not normal to rely on any God to help you out especially if it's a survival situation. I don't think I would ever give up ,AKA praying for a God to rescue me. I'm on my own and I'm stronger than I think. We are all on our own and stronger than we think.
I recommend to anyone who goes into the backcountry to educate yourself the best you can. Go in prepared. And carry a Bear Grylls Survival Knife but leave the pamphlet at home.
