13. Yep, the Rapture concept is largely fictional....

....the Rapture originates separately with two different people in the early 19th Century: a teenage girl living in Scotland, and a London-born preacher.

Margaret McDonald, a fifteen-year-old girl living in Scotland, experienced a "vision" of the end of the world in 1820. In McDonald's vision, the chosen few are saved from a "purifying" fire. This is not exactly the disappearance in the middle of the day that popular culture views as the Rapture, but an early prototype. Several contemporary religious leaders deemed her visions demonic. She was probably lucky she wasn't living during the Spanish Inquisition...they had a tendency to burn first and ask questions later.

Meanwhile, a London-born evangelist by the name of John Darby and members of his flock, the Irish-born "Plymouth Brethren", popularized and spread the idea of Judeo-Christians being removed from the Earth, prior to some unknown major disaster. Darby traveled to North America on several occasions during the mid-19th Century, teaching his theory of the Rapture. On one of these trips, Darby met with James Brookes, a prominent preacher and writer in Missouri and, most importantly, the mentor of Cyrus Ingerson Scofield.

Scofield, influenced by Darby's teachings via his mentor, published the Scofield Reference Bible in 1909. The Scofield Reference Bible went on to become one of the best selling religious texts of the early 20th Century, one that continues to sell extremely well in the United Kingdom.

Folks who believe in the Rapture don't like to be asked where it's discussed in the Bible, because they simply can't tell you. Then they get angry and want to tell you you're going to left behind!!

43. Thanks for that information.

I've always wondered where the idea came from.

We all have weird dreams from time to time. Rational people realize that they are just dreams. Maybe there's something important in it for the individual, something the subconscious is trying to say to that person, but otherwise, it's just a dream.

11. First off I don't believe in the Rapture. However, isn't funny that the very people

 

who are suppose to be nonjudgemental are the very people who think they are going up for the rapture. LOL, that really is something to me. My daughter-in-law and her sister both had children out of wedlock yet you see them go to some wacky church on Wed & Suns praying and are against abortion. Here is the thing for me they will let someone get a pass having children out of wedlock but they are against abortion. They see no shame in have a child out of wedlock. There was a time a girl having a baby out of wedlock was a sin. Go figure. I mean I don't care about having the baby but am trying to make the point.

I'm old enough to remember how quickly public opinion changed on that, during the Reagan 80s. What was once a shameful thing for the family became "she was so brave, she didn't have an abortion!"

It was so scandalous. But she graduated but was called all kind of names. As we got into the late 60s early 70s things started to change. But all am saying what a double standard.

No one has a right to leave a paper with that kind of crap on it. It sounds like to me they are threating you. Rapture comes at death? I don't know enough about what the Bible says to understand what it means. But then I'm not a religious person. I only "Do unto to others as you would have others do to you" is my religion. If we all did that all over the world, we would be happy...unless there are those who say, Kill unto others as they kill unto you. That might be a little hard to do.

Oops! The tree of life was injured by Wotan's sword. It withered as was forecast by the Norn. The string of prophecy broke and they knew that the world and heavens would perish in fire.

But at least the Rhinemaidens get their gold back.
