One thought on “Pacific Standard Magazine – Why are So Many Christians Obsessed With Predicting the Rapture?

  1. Not a great headline, though. I think that trying to calculate the date (which is explicitly anti-Biblical, after all) is only a small part of Rapture-obsession, and pathological even by Rapture-believer standards.

    And as usual this article looks only at the belief, not at the effects it has. If you expect the world to end at any moment, why try for that promotion? Why recycle your trash? Why have children? Why do some of these things get ignored by the believers, and not others?
