Oh the rest of us stay here and get eaten by the dead out of Christ? I think I have seen this movie a lot of times.
this would appear to be disinfo.
As far as the way I read the Bible there is no maximum
limit or number used to describe how many Christians
will be included in the Rapture. It is EVERYONE who
believes in Jesus, no matter how many there is.
The only excluded ones from the rapture are the
