I'm going to make an assumption that everyone posting in this has bought life insurance, car insurance, some kind of insurance on their house, health
insurance, etc., at some point.
Now, when you bought that insurance, did you go around saying "Damn! I hope my house burns down tonight so I can collect that money!"? I would
hope not. It's there in the EVENT that said thing happens. Let's say that some miracle happened, and not one house burned down in the next year.
Would you then say that fire insurance was a "big scam"?
If you take the bible seriously, you know that one of the greatest signs of the end times would be the Jews back in Isreal. (Some say Jerusalem) We
are told that when this happens "this generation" wouldn't pass away before Jesus' return. What we AREN'T told is what "this generation"
means. Is it literally the people who were alive then? It can't have been the "40 years" generation, because that is already past. Is it
considered the lifetime of a human, which is set (biblically) at no longer than 120 years? Furthermore, are the jews considered back from the
creation of Isreal, or from the takeover of Jerusalem?
Anyway, the point is this. They would have to have a "dead-man's switch" set up so that the e-mails will go out. Second, YES servers and e-mail
will still function normally for a time, providing electricity is still maintained.
Critical thinking has totally been eliminated in modern society. What I call the "If...then..." thinking.
IF there is a God, and IF there is a rapture, and IF it does happen soon, THEN these people have set up a system where they can reach the lost after
the event. In other words IF this is all true, THEN they are doing everything they can to keep you out of hell. And that's worth nothing to you?
Let me put it another way: IF this is true, THEN they are trying to save you from a fate much, much worse than mere death. And you view that as
Change your attitude and think of this as "soul insurance" for someone else, then it doesn't seem as ridiculous. These people spend $60 to buy a
chance, no matter how slim, to possibly save a soul from hell, and you value it as nothing?
Finally, I leave you with this: 2nd Peter 3:9 (King James Version)
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance.
