Actually the notion of rapture is not completely made up off of some random idea. There is a verse in Revelations thats talks about the gathering of some chosen people before shtf. Dont ask me where I havent read the bible in ages but when I was a Christian that was my favorite book...love the doom and gloom. Lol

Almost all Christians are interested in prophecy. This is especially true if the prophecies show what will happen to Christians themselves. There is nothing wrong in desiring such personal knowledge. Even our Lord gave a considerable amount of teaching about the circumstances to befall His people at the end of the age (Matthew 24:22–25). We all share a common concern in wanting to know about the participants, the chronology, and the geography of those prophecies. To comprehend the full knowledge of them it is obvious that all relevant statements of our Lord and His apostles must be properly interpreted and placed in a coherent order. Many Christians have attempted to do this. As a consequence, the doctrine of the Rapture has arisen. So important has it become to many that the teaching is now sanctioned in some circles as the prime revelation from God to show what will happen to members of His ekklesia just before and during the Second Coming of Christ. Some of the greatest friends of the Holy Scriptures have accepted this teaching (and they teach this false doctrine even by mistranslating the phrase “first resurrection” as “the former resurrection” in Revelation 20:5). If one translates the word correctly as “first,” then it means the resurrection of Christians occurs after the Tribulation, and the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory is shown to be false. 1 The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory, however, is a menacing doctrine that perverts the plain language of the text of the New Testament. Some preachers today look on the doctrine as the heart and core of present Christian expectations in regard to prophetic truth for the near future! Many believe this false teaching is the principle hope of the Body of Christ for their redemption and safety during the Great Tribulation. We need to look at this teaching carefully.
Well in a way it is the end for him maybe, i mean look at how old the guy is.

Just be aware if the predicted may 21, 2011 rapture doesn't happen. It's because the man who was behind the prediction wanted a but load of money. $70,000,000! He asked for donations to help his religious organization. In case you don't know, the one behind all of this is Harold Camping. He predicted that the rapture would occur on September 1994. But we all know that didn't happen. I bet he made money off of that prediction as well. Does anyone think he should be arrested by the F.B.I.? I don't know if it will happen or if it won't happen. But we all know who to come after if it doesn't happen. HAROLD CAMPING. It's wrong to make money off of a religious event. especially the second coming of Christ. Does anyone agree with me on this?edit on 20-5-2011 by paranormal78 because: mistake in grammaredit on 20-5-2011 by paranormal78 because: (no reason given)
