If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his
Proverbs 24:10-12

Switzerland has it all, the Alps, ski resorts, low crime, 800 years of peace, prosperity and democracy. Not too bad, when you consider that they are centered in war torn Europe. Is neutrality their secret? Or do they have something else, also, in their favor?

The Swiss have a civilian army. It numbers over 600,000 men (about 10% of the entire population). This is the equivalent of an American military of about 25 million—which is many times more than America actually has in uniform.

In Switzerland, every able bodied man serves in the military, first in full-time training, and then in the reserves. They do this for at least 30 years (from age 20 to age 50). At age 50, they serve another 10 years in Civil Defense.

Any man deferred from military service must then serve in the Civil Defense instead. The Swiss military became the role model for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in the early 1950s. The IDF have never lost a war, though greatly outnumbered by Arab nations such as Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt.

In Switzerland, until recently, every man took his army issue assault rifle home with him and kept it there. As Robinson and North point out in their book Fighting Chance: Ten Feet to Survival , “They are a peaceful, prosperous, freedom-loving, low-crime, heavily armed camp.”

Swiss bridges are mined and the army has military bunkers all over the country. It would cost any invader dearly to try and conquer the Swiss. Which is perhaps why Hitler stayed out during World War II. And why the Russians stayed out after the War.

But that’s not all. The entire Swiss population is sheltered from nuclear attack. Since the 1950s, the Swiss government has required home builders to install basement blast shelters in all new homes. The Swiss government pays part of the cost. Civil Defense construction is a major industry in Switzerland.

The Swiss, like the Russians and Chinese, obviously believe that they should do all possible to protect their population. They know that radiation decays over time. They understand that several feet of dirt and concrete combined can shield people from almost all harmful radiation.

They are aware that underground blast shelters may survive a nuclear blast just a few miles from ground zero. They realize that above ground homes will probably be demolished at the same distance.

Of course, the above calculations will depend on such factors as the size (in either kilotons or much bigger megatons) of the nuclear device and whether it is ground or air burst. But in any case, it would not be cost effective to launch a nuclear strike on Switzerland. 

Too many Swiss would survive and be able to resist any invader after such a nuclear attack. The Swiss have the nuclear war survival skills that America lacks.  America can learn some lessons from the Swiss.

Tulip Gems is a Calvinistic Baptist web site that honors Jesus Christ and provides a free Hyperinflation Survival Guide.  We offer free Bible Articles on several subjects, including Bible Nutrition , Creation Science versus Evolution Passover , The Great Commission and Tulip Calvinism

Which Bible can we trust? Which Bible is the most accurate? Why KJV only? Read our Which Bible series of articles for answers from both Scripture and history (including a Rebuttal of James White's book, The King James Only Controversy).

We also offer a well-documented Vietnam Veteran Story that illustrates the mercy of God.  The Vietnam Veteran Story, found on our Combat Vet page, comes from published accounts of Vietnam Veterans experiences, as well as this Vietnam Veterans experiences, told first hand.  

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our
Survive Nuclear Attack page. While many Calvinists shy away from Bible prophecy, we don't. For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.
