Statement of Intent, or What is a Survival Primer
19 February 2004 note.
This recommendation came from a friend, as I have asked people who already know me to email a link to my site to their friends. I am not on any search engines.
"Below is a Website which is the most complete one on survival information that I know of. The founder and researcher, Paul has spent years compiling and putting this on the Internet for our benefit. So I know you will be blest if you access and use the many files he has made available." http://www.survivalprimer.com
Thank you for the kind words, Harrietta. (You can see why I call her my staunchest supporter.) My Survival Primer files are not ALL on the web site, nor can they be. More will be added over time, this is just the first week. There is a need to choose the most important, basic items, first.
I am NOT a Survivalist, I am a Carpenter. More importantly than that, I am a Christian, and make no apology for it.
I started out to collect simple, compact, direct information, just a few basic facts or ideas, that could save people's lives, when they needed them. My intent was to maintain the point of view of someone who knows nothing about survival, and teach from there.
If I talk to you about Magnetic Declination, and you have never used a compass, there is no help given. If, however, a basic understanding of the fundamentals of how you use a compass is given, that will may stay with you. It can save your life.
The same principle applies to many other survival subjects than the use of a compass. Feel free to do more research than will be presented here, and learn as much as you will. Send me what you know or have collected, and we can all share it.
What happened to me was that I found I could gather just a lot of information, and store it on my computer. Basically, if there was a site that has interested me about Survival and Homesteading, I have a copy of it in my files. I can't really publish all those, they don't belong to me. As well, I have never seen a site that would contain all my files.
I want to give you the fundamentals of survival, that will stay with you, on this site. As well, and really most importantly, I want you to know that Jesus is alive and sitting at the right hand of the Father, and that He loves you, and has your best interest at heart. He has led me these many years, and will lead you if you let Him.
There can be no reason to apologize for that. It is not a belief for me, it is a fact. No matter how long you survive here on Earth, where you spend the rest of eternity is up to you. Read the 24th Chapter of Matthew in any Bible translation that pleases you.
When I came to the LORD I just accepted Him, and did not pray any prayer. I just simply accepted Him for who he was, and is, in my heart. That is where it matters.

15"Be wary of false preachers who smile a lot, dripping with
practiced sincerity. Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other.
Don't be impressed with charisma; look for character. 21"Knowing the
correct password--saying "Master, Master,' for instance--isn't going to get you
anywhere with me. What is required is serious obedience--doing what my Father
wills. 22I can see it now--at the Final Judgment thousands strutting
up to me and saying, "Master, we preached the Message, we bashed the demons, our
God-sponsored projects had everyone talking.' 23And do you know what
I am going to say? "You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make
yourselves important. You don't impress me one bit. You're out of here.'
