Rumor and Prophecy -- September 23, 2017? What's Going to Happen?

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The following video reviews some of the rumor and speculation surrounding the date of September 23rd, from Christian as well as other perspectives. For years now, every fall, rumors abound about various global shifts or prophecies. Whether or not these events occur, as described, often remains unclear. But in many cases, these claims don't work out as advertised. With all this in mind, I find it quite helpful to exercise my discernment skills by reviewing information like this. I suggest you don't assume things are true or false, based on coherence with your beliefs alone. Instead, try to objectively evaluate the claims on their merits, conducting research independent of the video, so as to make up your own mind. In time, we can see what turns out to be true or false, and in doing so, sharpen our sensitivity to reality.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
