I hear you.
I'm talking about the self righteous ones who believe they are deserving.
They call themselves Christians but do not follow the words of Christ, they follow all the harsh crappola from the old testament and forget about the sermon on the mount.
World would be better off if they were all whisked off to heaven IMO

As I sit here, ready to work on a new project, I am saddened by the honest, sincere people that were "mis-lead" by this particular gentleman.
I received literature about this nearly 6 months ago, in front of a Costco. The young man was nearly 20 I imagine, and very unobtrusive. He merely asked if I was interested in looking at his literature. He was friendly, and sincerely concerned for my well being. I took it, and very briefly explained to him my own take on Biblical prophecies - which I have studied for many years.
I also saw a man riding a bike with a huge banner attached to his bike, proclaiming this event. It only grieves me, because they are so sincere - and it seems their only wish (the ones I have seen) is to try to "save" others.
This just shatters the faith, for those who have believed, but nothing has happened - and many may walk away disillusioned. It also affords the non's the opportunity to point the finger in jesting disdain, making those who are sincere "searchers" feel even worse.
I will explain my beliefs to those who want or ask to hear, and I never feel the need to "defend" God.
HE speaks for Himself.
I have to believe personally that if there is a God, it is genderless not He nor She.
Again just my opinion.

3 - The hoofing gert Super Volcano under Yellowstone.
4 - Zombies, they can be a tad destructive.
5 - Aliens might come and eat us all!
6 - God will destroy everything.

Choices choices . . .

Hey I work in a care home, where every day is take the piss sunday!!
I already know when the world will end and its a varifiable fact I'm afraid. It will happen like this:
Liverpool will be 1 game, just 3 points away from winning their first league title since 1066. They will be 4 nil up in said final game with only 2 minutes left. The trophy will be polished just sitting waiting to be delivered to our sweaty palms, when some dodgey bloke with a hip flask and wierd scottish accent from manchester will put a call into whom ever is in charge upstairs, and ppppooowwwf all existance as we know it will just cease.
You'll see it coming one day, worry yeah not. :-] :-] :-]

I must say that I agree with Bert . . . we must have bought same book. The only difference is that because the Rapture is scheduled to be "local" time, it would be occurring at various times in various parts of the world and in our case, with various "local" teams . . .
For the east coast, specifically Pennsylvania, it would go much like this:
The Philadelphia Flyers will be 1 game, just 1 goal away from winning their first Stanley Cup since 1066. They will be 4-nil up in said final game with only 2 minutes left in the 3rd period. The trophy will be polished just sitting waiting to be delivered to our sweaty palms, when some dodgey bloke with a hip flask and wierd French-Canadian accent from Montreal will put a call into whom ever is in charge upstairs, and ppppooowwwf all existance as we know it will just cease.
(Thanks, Bert, for the truth about the Rapture!).
