Subject: BS: Is the Rapture Underway???
From: Bobert
Date: 03 Aug 06 - 10:13 AM

Well, well, well...

I was listenin' to NPR a little while ago and they were talkin' about how many fundamentalist Christains are just lovin' this world war that their hero, George Bush, has crafted 'cuase it will bring a second comin' of Jesus Christ who will, in turn, take all believers to Heaven and leave the heathens to fight it out here on earth...

Yup, that's seems to be the condensed version of the story...

So to all my fellow followers of Christ, be sure to be ready for the call-up...

(But, Bobert, if God loves us why would he send Jesus to collect, i.e. kill, all the Christains???...)

Ummmmm, don't ask me... I gotta a friemd who says she belives in this rapture thing and so I asked her to explain it to me and she couldn't... But she said she would get me some books to read about it... Great...

But I can't wait on the books since Jesus might be here today to collect all his followers so can anyone explain to me how this thing works???

The Rapture is when Jesus returns and takes all the fundies (HIS fundies) away to heaven, and shuts the door and won't let us in. As if we'd want to go to that heaven.

He who loves his love o'er well
Will gaze in Helen's eyes in Hell,
But he whose love is dry and wise
Shall see John Knox in Paradise.

We still get left with Moslem, Jewish, Hindu etc. fundies, but we also get to keep all the rappers, Rapaire, rapscallions, rapper dancers, risberry rapple, rapport, Rap vin Wankle, Rapunzel and so on. So it's largely the same as before, except for a few puzzled fundies who weren't among the Elect after all.

Bobert - You might ask your friend to look up the rapture in the bible. She won't be able to find it because it was never mentioned. The rapture was thought up by a woman in Scotland back in the 1800's who had a vision. According to her at least.

Could have been MMario..lol

Aye it indeed was a Scot's Woman and it is said that the power of the Holy Spirit visited one, Miss Margaret Macdonald while she was dangerously sick and thought to be dying. It is said that she is supposed to have come under "power" of the Holy Spirit for several successive hours during which she experienced the manifestations of mingled prophecy and vision. The message she received during this prophetic vision convinced her that Christ was going to appear in two stages at His second coming -- and not one! The visions revealed that Christ would first come in glory to them that look for Him and then come again in a final stage when every eye would see Him. These Events would be what has come to be called "The Rapture"

Bad Haggis...possibly...(is there good Haggis..:)

Still I am taking no chances. Cottage by the Sea for me...any givers:)

Only...there's quite a bit of disagreement if the Rapture is coming before, during, or after the Last Times. If before, cool, all the good folks will be assumed up bodily and all the baddies will go through the bad times. If during...well, the goodies will endure only some of the bad stuff. But then, the Rapture might come after the shit hits the fans (so to speak) and the good and the bad will have gone through the same thing.

Most rapturists I've met assume the first, pre-Bad Times, scenario. Of course, all of them conveniently forget Mark 13:31-33, where it is clearly stated:

31Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 32No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.

My brother is convinced the rapture is soon coming and he's going up. He also keeps warning me about being on a plane at that time because the pilot could get snatched away.

It might be a good idea to make sure your pilot is an unsaved sinner before boarding. (If you peek in the cockpit and he has his hand up the stewardess' thigh, you're good to go.)

If he's convinced he's going to be called up wouldn't that be considered a sin of pride? I've always wanted to run into a "rapturite" so I could ask them that question.

rapture history

Yes - you're always best off getting your theology from teenagers! Margaret MacDonald also identified the Antichrist - it was of course Scottish social reformer Robert Owen.

As far as the Bible (Revelations of St John the Devine) is concerned there's only room in heaven for 144,000 people, and they're all Jewish.

I know there is a phrase to the effect of saving one's rear end,MM, but I don't think the Rapture refers to one's physical parts. :)

well according to some versions the 'saved' - including all who have died, are *BODILY* assumed into heaven.

Now if someone who is "saved" has a heart tranplant from a sinner - does the heart get left behind?

Or is someone who is 'saved' had a liver donated and that liver is currently in a sinner - does the liver get assumed into heaven?

One of my dachshunds seems to have vanished! Could this be the Rapture? If so, it shakes my faith, because he is a noticeably sinful little creature with many vices. Why would he be taken? What could it mean? Have the Fundamentalists got it all wrong? Is Christian prophecy going to the dogs?

Don't get me wrong. I like Jesus. It's just that he let's all these assholes tag along with him. Bunch a wanna be holier than thous. I asked just the other day, "Jesus Christ! What's with all these fucking assholes who walk with you?" He said to me, "They have fish for the barbie, wine for the cooler, and lots of bread for the plate. So, let it be. Nudge nudge, wink wink." He speaks words of wisdom. I think he learned from his mother.
