    Re: Judgment Day coming in October

    This "pastor" is such a misguided charlatan in my opinion. Either he's trolling for personal spotlight or he's genuinely stupid. Many Christians have specifically pointed out the very literal passage in the Bible that says no one knows the time or the hour of the rapture.

    Another possibility is that it's a nice change of pace in news from the usual politics the clog the air waves.

    The Bible tells us we are not going to know and this old man is basing his prophecy on numbers and dates no one knows.
    Most Christians would deem him a false prophet? He is a cult leader at this point and we know how badly these kind olf things can end up

    Sure the folks are dumb to follow him but he has them brainwashed. They folks that follow this man are mentally ill.

    BTW, isn't most of his money tax exempt? Or not? That right there does not seem right as this man is preying off the folks that follow him.

    Another sad example of the deleterious effect religion has on society.

    That simply can't be a coincidence.

    The ones that fall for that stuff are mentally dead anyhow. Again, public humiliation is good.

    Technically, that's not about a 'rapture'. There is nothing in the Bible that talks about a 'rapture'. It's a relatively new thing, believed by a very small minority of Christians.

    Yes, there is. Whatever verse (forgive my many decades) about "one shall be taken, the other left". I don't know why they call it rapture though.

    If Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins are reading this forum? They are either pissed or weeping right now over your post.
