Don't get me wrong...I'm all for freedom of religion! But I do have to ask...does freedom of religion equal freedom to be ridiculous?
I've been reading quite a bit about this Rapture scheduled for May 21, 2011. I'm not sure where I will be at the end of the day. Will I be taken to Heaven's pearly gates before my time shrouded in the loving arms of Jesus Christ? Or will I be left here on Earth to see the horrible devastation?
My first instinct upon learning of the upcoming end of the World was to eat all the ice cream I could and charge up my credit cards...but then I thought that wasn't very Godly and I would for sure be left behind to suffer. If I have any hope of making it onto the Jesus train, I better behave a little better than that. In the off chance the end isn't really here, those pounds I would gain from the ice cream would be much harder to take off and the credit card bills, whew, don't even want to think about it!
What's going to happen to the true believers of this Rapture? Many have sold their worldly goods and quit their jobs. What will they put on the applications for their next job where it asks "Reason For Leaving Your Last Job" I can assure you that if I were reading it and it said "Was preparing to go with Jesus" I would put that application in the Not a good fit for our company pile.
I hope I wake up tomorrow to the sun shining, the birds singing and my morning cup brewing. I hope that end is not really here, but if it is, I know I've lived a good life, I've loved a lot and given of myself the best I can. Hope to see you all again soon.
Oh yeah, and if this isn't it, the Mayans have predicted it to be December 21, 2012 so we can discuss this again then.
