21. The whole "Born again" movement is based on this

There is a story in the bible where 144,000 JEWS are converted to christianity, then they float up to heaven. They later come down and fight the battle of Armageddon. Republicans call this the "Rapture" . Problem is, it happens to jews in the bible, not republicans.

A 7th day Adventist woman in the late 1800s came up with a theory that these 'Jews' were actually American Christians. The right wing xristians have latched onto this and the born again/religious right was born.

The kicker for me has always been that in revelations 3 : 9 it calls "those who call themselves jews, but are not" (born agains) the "synagog of satan"

Idiots dont even know their own religion
