what i can remember from school days, people who are standing on street corners preaching, those who are rich, those who are anyhting but meek and sweet, won't get into heaven.
thus, all these outspoken, pain-in-the-ass xtian types, who pisses us off, will then, not get raptured.  and the nice people, who mind their own business, will get raptured.
so even if rapture happens, we will still be stuck with these schmucks who hire billboards, have television stations, and preach to anybody who will listen (and those who wont too).  the people we were hoping would be gone, are still around.  bugger.

By the above odds, we'd be gone too....  Angel

But just imagine how much entertainment we would get hearing and seeing them complain and scrabble for excuses as to why they were left behind. I would bet that the last reason thought of would be that they are not worthy!

considering how many honest and true to book xtians there are out there, the amount raptured will be tiny.  and the bible bashers will deny rapture even happened.  be it from a fear of losing business, or simply being too deep in denail to know the difference.

Christian homes suddenly empty are now providing free clothing, furniture and appliances to be donated to the poor. The dramatic decrease in motor vehicles on the road is decreasing the demand for fossil fuels, driving gas prices down…. Prison populations have virtually disappeared. Recycled Bibles are now being used to make juice and milk containers for schoolchildren. Former religious institutions are now being used for exploration, health, science and recreation. Our planet now has more money, more food, more space, more resources, more education, and more common sense than ever experienced in recorded history.
