I had a laugh and a 1/2 this week on Facebook about the idea the rapture would happen on May 21, 2011 – any rational thinking person obviously knew Harold Camping’s prediction was biblically fueled insanity that went a tad too far. Why was it not going to happen?
Easy, there is no such thing – well, as it is explained by Evangelicals anyways. Heck, I am not even sure the idea exists in scripture and is not whole-heartedly made up by hopeful thinking Christians trying to avoid their own mortality. It seems to me to be an idea read into scripture and not read out of it.
It’s fun wishful thinking the rapture. But that’s exactly what it is, wishful thinking (as Larry Norman ‘I wish we’d all been ready’ plays in the background).
