On the Fast Track to "The Rapture"

Increasing natural disasters are raising the rapture index, leading some Christians to believe the Second Coming is near. Whether you see earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis as natural disasters or acts of God, this has been a bad year for the world and a good one for the rapture index. The index, a feature on the Web site http://www.raptureready.com/, is a measure of how quickly the world is careening toward the Second Coming of Christ. On a good day, it claims 15,000 hits.

This has been one of my favourite time wastin' websites for some time. The FAQ section is a maddening series of explanations and defenses of Christiantiy, riddled with all kinds of subjective opinions regarding the interpretation of Biblical texts.
 
The so-called "rapture" is not biblical. It wasn't even taught about until the late 1800's. I have studied the subject in great detail have written a study entitled: "Rapture Theory." You can read it at http://gospelarmor.blogspot.com/2005/02/rapture-theory.html

Your jaw will drop!
 
These people's knowledge of the accuracy of second coming or end times is on par with the homeless man standing on the corner wearing nothing but a billboard saying "The End Is Near".

We've had geological upheavals since time began & you can paste "rapture" on any & be wrong on all.

Nature does it's thing & always will. If "Rapture" comes, it will probably come at a time you are least expecting it.
 
This is my rapture or second coming on this topic.

jon is right. There is no biblical mention of "rapture." It is the brainchild of a 19th century Brit.

What men won't do for a little fame. Makes you wonder about religious writings, doesn't it?
