Yeah, it is sad. Interesting that what you describe also happened at Y2K. A week later the paper was full of ads trying to sell generators, dried food, water purification stuff, radiation suits, etc.
This has happened dozens of times throughout history with some preacher or shamen or other fraudster.
You can’t protect stupid people from themselves.
As far as quitting a job and running up credit cards...that doesn’t sound very ‘ethical’ or ‘moral’ to me, if you think you are going to die soon. Sounds more convenient and unethical to me. Furthermore, religiously speaking, you are not supposed to ever predict or anticipate the rapture. The very people who believe this stuff are sinning themselves out of salvation by not following the Bible.
What if Jesus tells them they can’t go if they still have debts to pay? Sounds like a reasonable thing for Jesus to do.
Oh well Gena, I’ll see you tomorrow on the other side...or not, I don’t know.
You should have been on FR in December of 1999. Fun times...
Romans 13:8 KJV
Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
