    What a pleasant thought. Imagine a world without christianity.....that would be heaven.

    No because we don't know when it will happen

    Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

    Mat 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

    Mat 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

    Mat 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

    Also the rapture will happen very quickly

    1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    No we will wait for HIM and keep dealing with ppl like you.

    By the way what are you supposed to be? If it's some kind of angel then you should know that angels are male in the BIBLE and why are you portraying something from the BIBLE anyway? You are surely not a hypocrite are you/ (smiles and shakes head)

    No one knows when the rapture will happen. Where in the world did you get the idea that it was supposed to happen by 2010?

    One can only hope. But most likely not. Because according to scholars from the last millennium the rapture was supposed to have happen by the year 2000. Guess what, its 2006 (at least for 4 more hours) and no rapture, and also, no mass suicide. So I doubt they'll do it when the next supposed time of the rapture rolls around.

    The belief in the rapture is a relatively new doctrine in Christianity. It is less than 150 years old and is a product of dispensational theology. Belief in this doctrine is limited to some Fundamentalists and Evangelicals. The Non denominational movement is a subset of these two groups. Out of this small minority in the Christian community I doubt that there will be any suicides. No Christians believe in suicide.

    The only thing Christians know for sure is that each day that passes we are one day closer to Christ's second coming whether you believe in the rapture or not. God Bless. Amen Sincerely, Rick

    Considering the fact that only a very small percentage of Christians believe in the rapture, I would guess "no."

    Nope...because they'll all be watching the 2010 Soccer world cup!

    No. The problem isn't that their rapture hasn't come yet, but that the great eschatological event awaited by Christianity came already, in 1844 AD, as promised in the Book of Daniel.

    Absolutely Not. Christians do not believe in Suicide. It is a sin.

    I think the official date is February 14, 2009. Don't quote me though...you might want to verify that before you drink the poison kool-aid.
