What!!?? No Extra Clean Underwear?
The Pre-Tribulation Rapture... and other Protestant Fairy Tales

Hat Tip to my pard'ner in crime, FABbio

Call it the Rapture. Call it being taken up to heaven. Call it a theological drive-by... whatever you want to call it, I call it funny. But only in a sad sorta way.

I want to make sure I understand this... thousands upon thousands of martyrs have died horrific deaths for Jesus, but this bunch thinks they somehow ot it made? What makes them above the martyrs?

Hey, and why is it that they got "taken up" wearing all their clothes, but the Bibles are left behind? What if they got skid marks and whiz stains on their skivvies? Will they still be allowed in heaven?

I doubt it. All we all know... "Nothing unclean shall enter".

The rapture is an uniquely American idea, I'm ashamed to say. It's a part of the evangelical health and wealth gospel. They believe that God will reward them with big houses, big blonde wives, and big cars and when things get really greasy on this old earth they actually believe that God is going to snatch them out of here while the rest of us stew.

Dymphna said "They believe that God will reward them with big houses, big blonde wives, and big cars." Just another appraoch to the "72 virgins" idea, I guess.

Caveman Commander,
