    If you're reading this, you've been LEFT BEHIND!

    The RAPTURE has taken place!!! If you are reading this, the rapture has taken place and you've been LEFT BEHIND. Early this morning I placed a dead man's switch in my chair so that if my chair was suddenly EMPTY, it would trigger this message.

    If you are still here then go buy the Left Behind series and start reading it so you will know what to do. I thought that guy was full of horse apples up to his ears but I guess I was wrong. If anyone wants my iPhone and my lunch, just take it cuz I'M GONE!!!!

    There wasn't an adjustment to allow for the change from the Julian to the Papist Gregorian calendar. There is still time for everyone to mail me the contents of their bank accounts and deeds to their property (No Detroit real estate, please).

    "To doubt God's mercy because our faith is feeble, is rather to rely upon our faith than upon the Lord. It is not the excellency and great measure of faith that makes us righteous before God, but Christ whom faith does receive and apprehend: which a weak faith can do as well as the strongest." ~John Ball (Puritan)

    With all due respect dear brother, a pre-Bawb position clearly makes more sense.

    I was thinking of going mid-Bawb but it would be too hard to explain.

    I had to abandon the a-Bawb position because all of this talk about a dead man switch is just too pessimistic. A post-Bawb position clearly embraces the golden-age switch, which imho is the only truly biblical position.

    LOL!
    Thankfully, Doc, if you missed the rapture, you can use your time machine and still make it. Back to the Past...or go Back to the Future and find out when it occurs and then set your watch alarm....

    Bawb, does this mean that you want all of your Glenn Beck Goldline International gold coins back too? Because, since I lifted yours I feel as if I have experienced my own private rapture!

    I was brought up in a penticostal church ie. Church of God denomination and they stressed that the Church will be raptured before the tribulation, but I feel that if there is a "rapture" it will be post-trib why? because it is a honor to suffer for the sake of Christ.

    Why does the charismatic church believe in a pre-trib rapture?

    Repentance follows. In other words, people must condemn themselves and then renounce and despise themselves so they can beseech God to refashion them in His image, which they have erased. That is our starting point, if we wish to repent properly, not as the papists, who have abused true repentance by turning it into fasting on a Wednesday and muttering or performing some affectation or other. We must begin at a higher level by yielding ourselves to God, acknowledging our total spiritual poverty and grieving over our faults. Likewise, what belongs to our human nature must be put to death so God can reign in us. That is what repentance is. [Calvin, Serm, Acts pp.6-7]
