    To live in California is to fear earthquakes, just as Florida, Louisiana, and Texas people fear hurricanes, and Kansas and Missouri fear tornadoes, New York and New England fear blizzards, and so on. Californians are in fear right now because of the 2 big quakes outside of the LA area, but the chance of dying in an earthquake still is less than if you were in a traffic accident.

    Possibly. The San Andreas has three distinct rupture zones, one of which popped recently. It can produce small earthquakes that you barely feel, big earthquakes that get everyone's tongues wagging, and very big earthquakes that destroy San Francisco. Just have your earthquake plan memorized and you're good to go.

    Besides, you're more likely to be pushed out of your home by California government policy than by an earthquake. Politicians are what will make you homeless, not the movement of the tectonic plates.

    If the foundation is built on bedrock, then it will stand. If the foundation is built on cement on top of sand, it will fall.

    Nevertheless, 4.5 MILLION people will die this week. You could be one of them. If you build the foundation of your life on Jesus you will live and you will not die.

    Why sit there until you die?  

    If you remain where you are, you must perish.  

    If you go to Jesus you will live. If you sit in sullen dispair no one can pity you when your ruin comes; but if you were to die SEEKING MERCY (as IF that were possible) you would be the object of universal sympathy.  

    You know others who were saved by believing in Him (your own friends and neighbors); so why not you? Why not taste and see that the Lord is merciful?  

    To perish is awful. We assure that if you seek Him, you will find Him, for He casts out none who come to Him. You shall not perish if you trust Him. On the contrary; you shall find treasure; eternal treasure, that will be stored up for you beyond this life.  

    We preach to the living even where the vultures gather because we must. Because we know the truth, and the truth will set you free. Because we too were about to perish when we got up and sought mercy for ourselves. We preach because God has ordained us to do just that.
