Question with 9 notes
Anonymous asked: I've heard the insult, "you'll be sorry when the rapture comes" quite a few times since coming out as an Atheist in 7th grade at a Catholic school. I always found it interesting how ready Christians seemed to be for the rapture to prove them right and everyone else wrong. They didn't care if it's the "end of humanity" as long as they were right.
Imagine being told all of your life “someday you’ll win”. From everyone you know, everyone you trust, everyone you look up to they always remind you “someday you’ll win”. Eventually you will believe it with every ounce of your being, it has been ingrained in to who you are and your very being. All your life you walk around thinking “someday I’ll win”. The rapture is the ultimate embodiment of “someday you’ll win” mentality. It is saying keep going on, keep looking to the signs, and someday sometime somehow you’ll end up winning. You’ll be rewarded with a great paradise where everyone else is left to writhe in agony and torment. Feel content in knowing that no matter what others say or believe you’ve chosen the right team and you will get your reward for it “someday”.
It is one of the biggest scams in history, promising someone something after they are dead, yet people fall for it. Nearly all throughout history people have felt that they were living just moments from the end of the world. They felt as if it was all going to end within just a few years, yet we’re still here. People will always be obsessed with the idea of an end time and those with the biggest egos will find a way to make themselves the winner. I’m sorry that you had to go through that when you were young but I hope you take heart now that you’re able to look back on it in knowing that you had a head start on the real world and reality, something your classmates may never catch up to.
