So the last several weeks I’ve been hearing about “The Rapture” and how it’s supposed to happen tomorrow at 6:00 pm. Don’t ask me what time zone, nobody seems to know. First there is to be a massive earthquake over the entire planet, then the dead will rise from their graves and on October 21st those that are left, (because believers will have been saved), will be incinerated.
At least that’s what a man with the last name camping, who’s supposed to be a pastor, on the family radio network said. He’s mathematically figured it out. So let’s break this apart. First the massive earthquake; unless there is a massive move on several tectonic plates all at once, this is impossible at the very least HIGHLY unlikely.
According to Camping, this is very clear in the Bible. (WARNING: THE NEXT LINE MAY OFFEND SOME PEOPLE). A collection of stories written and EDITED by men three hundred years after the stories took place translated (many different ways) from scrolls written in language that nobody knows on sheep skin. Yet, I’m going to quote that very same book. Only God knows when it will happen.
The Rapture itself does not fall in line with my understanding of Christianity. That all are welcome in the kingdom of Heaven. Anyway, I thought it was Armageddon that would end us all?
Do not get me wrong, I believe in God. I don’t believe in the men at the time that decided what goes in and what stays out. I also have an issue with a certain sect of a religion that holds back information to its constituents in a vault, under a sovereign city, built for the man decided by men to be the right hand of God.
People are fallible, mistakes are made. Anyway, see ya Monday!
