    I always thought Christians welcomed god coming so they could meet Jesus sooner.

    Blount County, Tennessee, where we know less about the Bible than the Constitution.

    The world would be a better place if more Christians actually took the time to read their Bibles instead of listening to these false prophets.

    Why do these people think their God is such a scumbag?

    Religion has held this country back so much. Sigh.

    The saddest thing is that some Christians believe God smote Soddom and Gomorrah simply because of the gay. They miss the entire moral of that story.

    That's called the rapture. Christians have mixed feelings about this. :p

    Well, for now it's just the delusions of one "religious" person. You'll find freaks everywhere. Let's see how the hearing goes... :D

    It's not? The word rapture is not used, but:
    The rapture is when Jesus Christ returns to remove the church (all believers in Christ) from the earth. The rapture is described in1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:50-54. Believers who have died will have their bodies resurrected and, along with believers who are still living, will meet the Lord in the air.Sep 29, 2014

    The moral is that God wanted to bag himself a nice buck, hence turning Lot's wife into a salt lick. Me, I would have turned her into a pile of rotten apples and sugar beets.

    fully agree I doubt most Christians want everyone to die so they can meet Jesus. the ones that do I wonder about.

    Not as its currently taught. Everything described in the passages above is what will happen near the very last of the Last Days, when the last 3000 (give or take, it's not a bunch) Christians are on the earth. The dead are resurrected, and the remaining faithful are taken to heaven.

    The whole idea that one day millions of Christians are going to be spirited away, signaling the first sign of the end times, isn't anywhere in the Bible, but is what The Rapture is. It's all a misinterpretation of the point that there won't be many Christians left when the end times begin.

    You gotta admit, turning someone to salt is a lot more scary than sugar beets.

    I thought most Christians wanted to send Jesus back to Mexico.

    A good amount of Christians would do good to read Kierkegaard.

    He didn't say "Jesus", he said "Hey, Zeus".

    Wow.

    Blount County. Where some day, in the near future, the children kill all the adults for their sins, hide in the corn, and worship He Who Walks Behind the Rows.
