So, as I’m sure everyone has already heard, “THE RAPTURE IS HAPPENING ON MAY 21st.” Now, how some genius has poured over the bible, figured out the date of the rapture, but somehow missed:
“But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” -Matthew 24:36
… is beyond me. I’m still here. Everyone I love is still here. The people who believed this are terribly disappointed, but… still here.
Thank you ever so much, Mr. False Prophet. This is whole kerfuffle you’ve created has basically become a giant point of scorn and derision for non-believers to poke fun at. All it does is tarnish the name of Christ, because, no matter how much we’d like to think you aren’t… you and your people are professed Christians, and non-believers will smear this in the face of the rest of us. I even heard one hyperventilating atheist claim that false hopes of a rapture have destroyed entire families, and should be outlawed!
(pssst… Isn’t it amazing how the intellectual elite are always the first to take a wild, murderous stab at freedom of speech in the interest of protecting the poor, the helpless… and apparently, now, the extremely gullible?)
There will be a rapture. But it’ll come as a thief in the night, not as a giant media extravaganza with CNN coverage.
Anyways, I’ll see all those I love in church tomorrow, and we’ll continue doing what we’ve always done: live and pray and work like the rapture will be tomorrow, even if it doesn’t come for another 50 years.
