    May 21...the end or not? What's your take on the end of the world or just the beginning of it? Idk, it seems just so premeditated.....

    Will not happen.

    Rapture was invented in the 19th century, it has zero reflection in the bible.

    You can misinterpret some lines, but there is zero support in the bible.


    The only real line about the rapture in the bible and it is as vague as the rest.
    If you take it at literal meaning, your dead family members are in the ground asleep, not in heaven.

    That church is going to be like "F**k" once they realize they wasted so much time and money on this. They will be the laughing stock for a long while I think. This is more absurd than the people believing that the world is going to end in 2012.

    It could definitely be the "what if?" factor. People are easily influenced. Biblical scriptures have major influence on the religious and everyone else follow the "what if?" factor. But i do agree with both....

    What if?

    Well let us really look at what if? If it was correct, then we have already seen the 7 signs, which could read as anything. But we also have had the antichrist among us. Not only is he/her here, but he actually got the whole world to follow him/her. Now only did he get the whole world to follow him/her, but actually called him/herself christ.


    So who is it? How has brought the beast of bible, conquered the world, and called themselves christ? Because as far as I know, and I have been paying attention, the world is still the same, crappy, divided world, as it was 2000 years ago.

    It is less violent, healthier, and even less diseases/famine. Which means that 4 horsemen have not be released on the planet.

    I really wish religious groups would read the bible before the mindlessly follow something.

    The church itself is making a ton of money off of it.

    However some supporters have given up their life savings.

    How else would you describe the dead person's instantaneous leap forward to the end of time to a first century audience?

    People don't arrive in heaven in dribs and drabs...they will all arrive at the same time to face the judgement...and the best way to imagine it in the 21st century is 'time travel'. The best way in the 1st century to imagine it was to be as if you were 'asleep'. It will likely be neither of these but something else we can't get our heads round. I'm not stating fact here, just an opinion based on putting different but related sections of scripture together...add 2 and 2 and resulting in 5 :D

    Oh...and on the 21st of May thing...Jesus himself said it wasn't for people to know when the end of time was but that it 'would come like a thief in the night' - so for someone to say that they can name a date is in direct conflict with the words of Jesus.

    And before you ask, the Bible does not say the opposite is true in another section.

    I hope so, my car payment is due next week.

    Isn't this the 4th time the world was going to end? We had Y2K, 2012, may 21 2011, and there is one more I am forgetting about.

    But all of what you posted was an allegory to reflect that a christian should be patient and watchful of gods word and action.

    Hmmm, woke up in the same place I went to sleep. The church across the street is full of the same wackos it's always full of (even on a Saturday). I, for one, am calling this myth "BUSTED".
