Relying on the end of the world, as predicted yet again by Harold Camping, I enjoyed some Culver’s Flavor of the Day, Pumpkin Pecan.
Thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Or gone to heaven without dying. Why count calories if it’s the end anyway?

What does The Church have to say about this?
Most Christians do not believe in the Rapture. (After all, it’s less than 200 years old as a doctrine.) They do believe in the Resurrection of the Dead, which is when Jesus will come back, raise all the dead, and then everything will all be over.

(If you’re looking for a serious refutation of the Rapture from an Orthodox Christian point of view, read here and here …)
… from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead; whose Kingdom shall have no end …
