Default Little Rapture Humor

With rapture season rolling around again I happened to stumble onto this thread from 2010. City Data asked me to update it so I did. It takes a little bit of a humorous look at the rapture as seen through the eyes of a Christian book publisher boardroom. Enjoy.

Light My Fire Publishers were in a world of financial trouble. Their lavish living--parties on yachts in the Mediterranean, "business" meetings at the finest resorts around the world, vacation mansion in the Caribbean---had taken its toll on the company's bank account and they needed a bestseller quick. Landing Hulk was a coup of the most extreme fortune and they were ecstatic. After Lindsley had left the boardroom a conversation started among the board members. One thing that struck me odd was that even in real life the members talk in King James language. Here's an answer to a question put to the CEO of LMF Publishers about how they were going to extricate themselves from financial ruin. Note the similarities to Daniel's 70 week prophecy:




I found the conversation very heartening, knowing that even if these guys live like the devil, at least they talk like an angel.
I met Hal Lindsey in 1998, he was a very attentive polite guy. We were at a book reading together standing in the back discussing Elijah and he seemed very interested, it surprised me a bit. I knew that he thought that I didn't know who he was, I think he liked that about me and so I didn't give him a clue of knowing who he was. That was like the greatest day of my life besides my children being born.

Yikes
You are a fly?
I guess you must be at least greatfull enough to have your occasional meal.

But you would be better off if there was something other than human scat to eat.

From I learned in biology. Humans don't leave much in the way of nutrition after they expell what has been eaten.

Besides the interesting and informative post.
How have you been doing lately.
You seemed to not wanna talk more about how you Honor the Lord.

As for all those supposed christion publishing companies.
Yeah,
They will have their reward all right.

Don't go fretting over nonsense thrillobyte.

Be convinced in your own mind what the Lord is really about.

Nah! Course not. You know, my ideas of the Lord are constantly in flux these days. Not sure what I believe anymore.

Been there.
Don't worry, He is patient like you wouldn't believe.

On a serious note.
You do have cause to bring up writers who exploit their own souls to deprive others of sound teaching.

Have you ever read revelation?

There is very serious and stern warning given very early on.
And the same warning applies to all who have provoked their children to wrath.

On a personal note.
I like your style thrillobyte.

Blessings Always
